I can't believe my blog is a year old already. This time last year, I had returned from a great weekend in London where I had stayed in Shoreditch and been hugely inspired by the art and really cool street style I saw around the area, so after a year of people telling me I should start a fashion blog, I decided to do it. London to me was so fashion forward and I felt Ireland was very commercial in comparison so I decided to blog about all the things I loved and saw that weren't commercial in Ireland in the industry I have worked in for 18 years now - Fashion!
What excites me so much a year on is the emails I regularly receive from people in Asia, Australia, all over Europe - not just in my own country, looking for advice on careers in fashion, style tips and just general heartwarming emails of support.
Here is a taster of some great memories from my first blogging year in pictures. I have enjoyed it so much. Thank you all so much for all for following my busy life, your support the past 12 months has made me more confident to share my endeavors with you here. Here is to hopefully keeping you entertained over the next year and more. E xo
