    Kildare Village Trip (#NIBloggerBrunch)

    Kildare Village Trip (#NIBloggerBrunch) As a blogger in Northern Ireland I am very lucky to have the expertise and knowledge of the beautiful Cathy Martin behind me. She is boss lady extraordinaire and also the founder of the #NIBloggerBrunch as well as Belfast Fashion Week. She has her own business at CMPR and takes precious time out from all this not only to blog herself at The F Words but to support all us local bloggers by bringing us together. This event was something a little more special. Cathy and Kildare Village had collaborated in order to bring nearly 80 bloggers from the North down to Kildare Village for a day…

    Lush Belfast

    Lush Belfast Opening of the new Lush Belfast store. Oh my word it’s the end of July and I can’t even begin to figure out where the past month has gone! So yesterday (Friday 27th July) I went down to Belfast for the opening of the new LUSH store in Castle Lane. Conveniently it was payday so things were gonna get messy. I went with the gorgeous Gillian from Eyeliner Flicks who like me is addicted to all the fab goodies LUSH has to offer. The new store is amazing. There is so much space for all the products to be displayed and played with. No to mention the consultation…

    Make Up Pro Store Launch at Foyleside Shopping Centre

    Make Up Pro Store Opening at Foyleside. I was kindly invited to the relocating opening party for the Makeup Pro Store in Foyleside shopping centre in Derry/Londonderry. I have been so lucky these past few weeks to be invited to such wonderful and exciting events. So I jumped into the car and sped up the road like Michael Schumacher (yes I’m that old ?) Anyway they were holding a #propaintparty which was the use of body paint/ uv paint and all things unusual while showing off the new store. Oh my word it was so amazing! The store is bright and spacious with plenty of on hand experience to guide…

    Debenhams Beauty Event – June 2018

    Oh gosh it’s been a couple of weeks since Debenhams held their Beauty Event. This was a nationwide event held in stores across the UK promoting the beauty services and products available in store.  I had the absolute delight to be invited by the gorgeous Denise. She was organising the event in the Craigavon store (www.rushmereshopping.com) Tickets for the night cost £5.00 and were redeemable against any purchases on the night. We received delicious summer drinks on arrival and were given a warm welcome. The store had gone to extreme lengths to put on a great nights entertainment with workshops from Urban Decay, Estée Lauder, Clarins and Benefit as well…

    CIPRNI Meet the New Media

    I recently had the pleasure of attending an event held in Belfast titled “Meet the new Media” This event was organised by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations in Northern Ireland. The purpose of the event was to hear from a few people who have been able to use social media to sell their brand and I use it as a way of generating income. The guest speakers were: Patrick & Russell (@gastrogays) Dillon Osbourne (@diltakesphotos) Kerry & Tara (@sistersandsons) Tiffany Brien (@tiffanybrien) Cathy Martin (@cathy_cmpr) Suzie McDonald (@suziemc7)  Each speaker told about about their brand, how they started and what made them unique in a sea of social media. I hardly noticed…
