What I did this July!!

July has been a very busy month! I recently went to the premiere of 'The Sweeney' which was really great. You can check out the review on

I have started to cover some events, and products launches and do some reviews for the lovely folks at Afterdark. I was so excited for the premiere. I wore dark lipstick and a long casual maxi with a structured jacket and high blue platforms.

You can check out the full length outfit on my lookbook:

Also, this month I photographed the lovely Lizzie Fitzpatrick creator of the brand 'Supercreep'. 
Check them out on Facebook: 
Lizzie has a beautiful face so I loved doing her make-up for the shoot. It was fun putting the different pieces together, it is a truly innovative and exciting collection. The official release of the images and audio interview with Lizzie about her style inspirations and woes will be online very soon - the same time as the launch of Lizzie's new website where you will be able to shop online for all the trendiest denim cut offs and denim distressed jackets as well as graffiti jumpers and leather ensembles.
Here are some of the images from the shoot:

I have done some reporting for the show for the Strawberry Fest, the best thing about RTE 'In Colour' on 2XM is that it gives unknown Irish artists/bands a platform to have their music put out on the airwaves, on digital and on UPC. If this tickles your fancy make sure to tune in weekly on mondays @ 8pm. You can tweet presenter @dardizzle if you fancy having your track played on the show or coming in for a session.

My favourite event of the month was coming on air on RTÉ 'In Colour on 2XM' about a fortnight ago. I talked about the Summer blockbusters such as The Dark Knight Rises, The Amazing Spider-Man, Disney Pixar's Brave, Ted (The Movie) and Prometheus Movie 2012 ! ♥ 
You can listen back to the show on the RTÉ Radio Player (best invention ever)

I have just finished an Honours Degree in Journalism and Visual Media in Griffith College Dublin, and the website approached me and asked me to review my time there. I was happy to oblige, maybe Griffith will take me back and let me relive the college experience like Van Wilder seeing as I loved my time there so much... (doubt it though) :) It is exciting moving on and starting to work in your chosen field but you have to be thankful of who guided you along the way.

I was also very excited to attend the American Honey Fashion show earlier this month in '37' on Dawson St. I am super excited to go check out their new stock in the coming days. The show was very inspiring. You can pick up these gorgeous 'American Honey' Jeffrey Campbell Lita boots on for just €180

I am also trying to single- handedly bring temporary tattoos back in fashion. I must not fail! :-)

My friends at are going from strength to strength. 
A video of my interview with Amelia Lily sponsored by is now on youtube:

 As an online fashion shop they are dominating the style stakes and keeping our Irish boutiques alive. They have a fresh outlook, buying concept and clothes for both males and females. No sexism in the Miinto HQ - they recognize style is a label that is worn to equal measure by both sexes! Men can pick up Tommy Bowes new shoe label and  and ladies can pick up this season feminine frocks and heels and accessories with a futuristic androgynous tweak. Bang on trend. The bag below is my current favorite find and a steal at just 15 euro. Major madness to follow in the coming days.... I don't know about you guys but I have a wardrobe to fill ;) and these days shopping online is so handy. 
clutch bag - €15.
