I am getting fully booked with clients which is brilliant! Dundrum is such a prestigious place to be a personal shopper and I really love my work. It is such a great feeling helping people find the perfect party dress & to be a guiding hand for someone to get a winter wardrobe update & the most flattering jeans for their shape. My clients vary from 18- 80 there truly is a great pool of choice for everyone in the centre. If you want to book my styling services you can find all the info here
The Sunday World Magazine asked me last week to give my guidance to their readers on what women in their forties could rock for the party season - you can check out the featured brands & accessories picks below!
It has been a very exciting time for me in many ways- I recently hosted a workshop for shoe brand Moda in Pelle in Clerys!
Clerys has been a long standing heart of Dublin’s retail history for over 160 years.
I have collaborated with the landmark store in other ways as a stylist - I styled a Christmas shoot featuring all Clerys festive attire for a covershoot for the Sunday Business Post to mark their grand reopening & I recently modelled for a Stellar Magazine shoot which covered my 9-5 week in style (which will be hitting the shelves soon) & I wore some cute cashmere pieces & accessories and of course my Moda in Pelle loafers. I have also used Clerys for a lot of my commercial celebrity shoots for the Sunday World Magazine & many other publications. They have a lot of funky concessions from Miss Selfridge, Stylist Pick, Sisley, Oasis & Mango but I think their best kept secret is Moda in Pelle! I have been trying to spread the word as the styles and price points of the shoes are truly fantastic.
Clery's shortly afterward due to my social media posts which I was really excited about.
Clare from First Options Model Agency showcased different footwear & accessories styles I handpicked that are available from 'Moda in Pelle' this season. Pictured below is my favourite full Clery's ensemble: an orange Oasis textured coat, a wheat coloured cashmere polo dress from the cashmere section upstairs in Clerys, a houndstooth wool scarf from 'Moda in Pelle', black opaque Oasis tights & stunning black suede knee skimming 'Moda in Pelle' flat boots.

By far the coolest thing to happen me recently is that I was featured in a five page spread in the December issue of Stellar Magazine! It basically showcases 'my week in style'. I never could have imagined a few years ago I would have a massive spread in a magazine I worshipped as a teenager! Truthfully It's a real game changer and its unbelievable to hold the magazine that has Alexa Chung on the cover in your hands and see a five page spread of flattering pictures that you can be proud of!
I wanted to look myself for the shoot so I did my own hair and make up the way I usually would on a day to day basis! A liner flick, my usual pale make up - no fake lashes and a slick of lipstick. Stellar are also interviewing me this week about my career and how I got to where I am by 24 years old which I am very honoured about.

The fashion show itself was fabulous, I loved the flirty florals, boho prints & floaty fabrics. You can check out one of my instagram vids below of the models storming the catwalk in the RHA Gallery:
The pink bubbly and canapés were beautiful too. I arrived really peckish and felt like it must be a mirage!

I'm personally obsessed with Stella & Dot jewellery. I just think it is so beautiful. I am considering becoming a seller as most of my clients would absolutely love it. I attended the press preview in the Dylan and adored all the chic Grace Kelly inspired pieces. If anything is going to hook me in - It's Grace Kelly. I also love the scarves, bags & more dainty versatile pieces. You can shop Stella & Dot here
'The Body Shop' on liffey street which I really enjoyed. They have amazing ranges of his n' hers gift sets as well as a wide range make up & different shimmers that are great stocking fillers. I got a good laugh when I saw the peppermint foot cream - all I could think of was Mean Girls and Aaron Samuels saying "Your face smells like peppermint!" hahaha
