After 3 fun years of attending college in Sligo IT, Laura, Thelma & I decided to head for the Big Smoke in search of a job. After a week of walking the streets of Dublin in high heels we were lucky enough to land ourselves permanent pensionable jobs, a penthouse apartment in Smithfield and we were living the high life!!!
Once I was all partied out I decided to go back West to settle down and start a family. But with all the fond memories I have of my years in Dublin I always jump at the chance of going back even if only for a night.
I met the lovely Aoibhe from The Secret Obsession last October, we made the top 30 finalists and won best dressed at the RSVP/Oasis Style Blogger Awards 2013. Ever since we have kept in touch (virtually) and I was not going to miss the launch of her new website.
The event took place in The VIP Bar at Dandelion Bar, Bistro & Club, Stephen's Green. Only one word for it WOW! Such a fabulous venue to host an event. As I arrived at 7 pm on the button I was lucky enough to get a fabulous goodie bag, full of treats including Beverly Hills Formula toothpaste and nail polish and eye shadow from Wet 'n Wild.
Oh what a sweet party it was.. as I entered the room I thought I had arrived in Sweet Heaven. The display of candy looked amazing...but I didn't expect anything less from the wonderful Amanda at Sugar & Spice. There was also a table with a stand full of fabulous cakes by Custom Cakes and oh my were they yummy. The went down perfectly with my glass of prosecco.
I always love events like these as I get to meet up with lots of fellow bloggers (old and new) as well as discovering up and coming new businesses. Meeting the fabulous Ambyr from Love Accessories and Wendy and Colin from iNailz was definitely the high light of my night. I was already a big fan of www.loveaccessories.ie as the jewellery and accessories are amazing and so affordable. But I have to say I was so fascinated by www.iNailz.ie I totally enjoyed chatting to Wendy and Colin and finding out all about their amazing digital nail art printers.
iNailz are the sole distributors in Ireland for the new digital nail art printers which can digitally print any image, any design or any pattern on to nails. Their printers hold over 500 patterns and can be upgraded on a regular basis with more designs/patterns throughout the year. The printer has a high resolution built in camera so you can take photos or images of dress designs and print directly onto the nail. For more information please contact
I also meet some other fabulous bloggers including Orla from Beyond The Fashion,
NiRiNA from Killer Fashion, Holly from All things Holly and Alison from Weddings To You. Looking forward to meeting all you ladies again on the 10th August for Our Into The West Blogger Network - #itwbn gathering in Galway. Make sure to join us on facebook.
All in all it was a very enjoyable night. Unfortunately I didn't get to take very many snaps as the lighting in the bar was very pink so most of the photos in this post are courtesy of The Secret Obsession. Go check out the fab new website! And thanks to the wonderful service of Go Bus I enjoyed a very pleasant and safe trip to and from Galway.
