SATC shoot


dream closet..


close up of the shoes..



we shot the outside shots just outside the Dylen Hotel in Ballsbridge.

These are pics from a shoot assisted on with Jules Fallon about a month ago, took my sweet time getting the pics up i know! The shoot was for online shopping with the 3 Network at the Dylan hotel, Sex and the City themed obviously.

All the models were from Assets and most of the clothes were from Om Diva in George's Street Arcade, great collection of vintage.

Good fun all round ;)

money money money money

I've taken a distinct dislike to rich people these days. Mostly because I'm very poor and also because can't see how i will be able to make any money fast and soon. Of course I've thought of the obvious options, walking the streets, selling all my belongings, thieving...

these three options failed me because a. I'd be a crappy prostitute, I don't like walking in heels, i get cold easily, being on the streets for a night would mean i miss a lot of TV .
b. i like my stuff, i have a lot of stuff, i haven't thrown away anything in about 11 years. I'm the ultimate hoarder.
c.well i was once a thief, i was 6 and i stole a mint Aero from tesco, I was very stealth about it, i put the bar down my cycling shorts ( it was 1998 - don't judge). i went straight home and ate it under my duvet. Of course, that's where my stealth ended, i left the wrappers on the floor. Mom found them and brought be back to Tesco to apologies to the manager and pay the 38p outta my pocket money, which was 50p, so quite the dent in my savings that week...

so yeah, i hate rich people, the worst rich people of all are those on Cribs. Uuugh the thought of cribs makes me shudder. They just have rooms and rooms of stuff that they don't use, like how many flat screens is too many? It makes me think that if they sold one flat screen, maybe poor people could buy new shoes.

Kimora Lee Simons' house was the worst, was she the one with the bowling ally? I remember being annoyed watching her anyway. From years of watching Cribs, the Hills, The OC, (and now there's Jersey Housewives), I've decided that maybe Communism is the way to go. I can see the appeal, spread the wealth, sharing, it's what we had to do in play school.
Although if anyone i know reads this they know i hate hate sharing. So as soon as i win the lotto i wouldn't be able to share or spread the wealth.

This post is stressing me out, I'm going to watch the Gilmore Girls..

to some up my feelings..

oh hello blake

AAAHH I love this coat, obviously if i wore it in Ireland I'd have to wear something underneath. It reminds me of a coat your parent would make you wear when you were little, but now its suddenly stylish so thank god we can b styl'n and warm.

Of course Blake Lively doesn't come with the coat, but that wont stop me, I've my own plan to win her over.

on that note..

Keeping with the paper theme, i was at a Stellar Magazine focus group last night. 
A group of us were picked from Facebook after they put up a post, was much craic. We arrived to find goody bags, french fancies along with copies of the magazine, and were offered wine straight away, food/wine/free stuff is always the way to my heart.

We talked about the content, cover stars, the blog and online activity, how much 'irish-ness' to put in it, the price (a mere €2), the layout and much more!

if you're wondering why all my samples are covered in glitter, it's because i think i sat on my goody bag and caused a nail varnish bottle to break and leak all over everything, typical.

and for another treat, here's one of the girl's blogs I'm lovin' atm

Keeping the printing press in business

I'm having a day where I plan not to leave my room until I've read each magazine cover to fair mother returned from North Carolina yesterday with many treats, including some magazines, it's only fair i read them all.

This is by far my favourite cover of the month, i dare say the year, sorry for the poor photo, i love love the colours and layout, seriously i wanna blow it up an put it on my wall or get a tee-shirt made with this cover on the front... 

(clearly there's not much going on in my life to condone such enthusiasm about a magazine cover... but c'mon look at it!!)

it could be worse

That's what my mom woooouuuuld say......however my mother is on a plane to America for a holiday... so it couldn't be better for her!

Although Lindsay Lohan is making me feel better


When I'm in a mood, i like to look at others misfortune to make myself feel better.

Yeah yeah yeah, not my best quality, but it works. Poor Lindsay tried to ask the judge could she get off the whole 'jail thing' because she's a celeb really sorry.

Pretty sure if i went for a cruise up to Tesco coked outta my head I wouldn't have the same luxury of saying sorry and probably only spending a few hours in jail.

So, it could definitely be worse..
