So much on, so little time.

So I finally get to sit down and do a little blogging. I had to remind myself today that I still have a blog and a website to run! I have had a whirlwind of a week but every second of it has been magical.

Wednesday saw the eagerly awaited launch of Fade Street at Dakota, which, in a lot of ways, is the Irish version of the Hills. As an aside, it was my inaugural presenting gig for stylenation. Up close among the action, I got to chat to Dani, Cici, Vogue and Louise about filming the show and what we can expect. These four girls are different in character but equally lovely and delightful to interview. All clad in black, they struck their best pose, and smiled away for the admiring paps and guests who wanted a piece of the action. I also had the chance to do some style spotting and chat to some of the faboo guests about their stylish attire whilst listening to Cork band, J90, rock it out.

Moving onto Thursday, Dundrum held the well publicised Shop and Rock event, combining two of my favourite things, shopping and music. I got dressed up, (poured myself into leather leggings and all!) and it was worth it as the lovely Angela Scanlon approached me to enter the most stylish competition hosted by BT2. No success to report there but the lucky winner did win at €500 voucher!

Now Friday night was exciting! The fashion glitterati (including me and Mark Andrew of course) were out in force to open Forever 21. Yes, it’s here. No need to pay for a flight to the States anymore. I had a ball chatting to stylist Maria Fusco, Off the Rails’ Brendan Courtney and fashionista Virginia Macari. And MTVs (and Bray’s) finest Laura Whitmore was on the decks spinning the tunes!  But the icing on the cake was interviewing the beautiful Amber le Bon for stylenation (my first big interview on camera!). Amber has been enlisted as the face of the European campaign and it was hard to avoid her stunning images throughout the store. We had a great chat, from why women carry handbags which contain our lives around with us to how cute the childrens clothes are! Amber also pointed out to me in which images you might be able to see her nose stud! I asked her all about her personal style and whether her catwalk queen mum, Yasmine, has passed down career advice. “Be nice” is the golden rule according to mum. You can see the whole interview on stylenation coming soon!!!!!   

Then, I spent Sunday in Zuku by KSO filming a little snippet soon to be seen on Xposé and Kildare TV.

And now I am pretty wrecked but have loads of fun stuff planned, like a shoot for Willow shot by the fab Maria McGrail and making a pilot for stylenation, so I’ll be kept busy!

Here are some of the memories of the week that was….
