I like to think that Fashion House is my online fashion diary,and is just for fun. Im not here to criticise anyone  compete or write about what i hate , i focus more on what i love. .  For me fashion is accessible to everyone and there are no rules. There is no rules in fun.  My fashion diary is more about high street vintage and  DIY.  Dont get me wrong i adore designer clothes and designers and the like and get alot of inspiration from them, but i cant afford it so i like to focus more on whats on my level and what i can do to mirror these beautiful clothes and amazing designers, and also making the best with what i have which would be customizing clothes and accessories to something close to what you might see on the catwalk and its alot more rewarding and ‘you’ reap the awards in the end .

I love blogging and couldnt see my life without it right now. Its an escape from the hussle and bussel and you can share it with people who has the same appreciation and passion and collide and share all your thoughts, and look into the wardrobes of others and get inspired from their fashion moments and fashion passion.

Preety kool like.

Hope your enjoying my blog. Lets hope to see you all next year on                                                                        my  second Birthday

An email is what led me to where i was in that photo above. I by no means think i am a model and i  was asked to do this shoot by the beautiful photographer    Natalie Herzer Greer  and director of Boudoir Girls!! So i jumped at the chance for a bit of fun,  i do love the whole shoot and makeup and of course the styling involved in these things.  The lovely girls from Rococo in Galway gave me the dress for the day and i felt a million dollars in it. We were promoting  “The Boutique Wedding Fair” on Saturday 19th of February from 11am – 6pm in The House Hotel. An event not to be missed!!

I am going to be there to check out the bride dresses and maybe see something that i like. All details about this event are above and also on their facebook page!!

So if your about Galway city please do drop in to the lovely Boutique Hotel and get pampered and watch some fashion shows or even meet some celebs!!!

See you there

Are You A Boudoir Girl ?

I was Flicking through my emails and came across a very familiar name Boudoir Girls and thought whats this. So reading on it was from the director Natalie asking me if i would like to do a shoot and have a bit of fun! So we set a date and before you know it i was knocking on her door and what a door it was! As Natalies house is self built and alot of hard work has gone into this original building! With its gothic/modern feel rooms had archways made from stone and stained glass panels in the kitchen. The whole house has pieces of furniture she has collected from her travels or refurbished herself. The entrance has a winding Black Cast iron stairs coming down the side of the wall while you can look up through to the other floors. My only words i used for the fist few minutes of our meet was wow Oh My God and amazing! Your typical words one uses when their speechless  hhmmmm…. We got to the studio and there was wardrobes with clothes from different eras and retro props like old suitcases and french style dial phones! Lots of different coloured backdrops and makeup and mirrors and lights and cameras!

Wow it was sooo kool!!

We got to clicking and then chatting and after the shoot we sat down and a chat and it ends up we know the same people!

So i asked Natalie how did this all come about and this is what she told me…

My interest started when I saw a lot of other countries including England had Boudoir photography and pin-up photography. There was nothing available in  Ireland like what I would want for myself so I set about offering women customized photo shoots including Boudoir, Pin-up, Vintage or themed. A shoot of their choosing, withing their comfort zone and of course some airbrushing to enhance their natural beauty even more. As a mother of two children I am very aware of body issues we women have. I aim to make each person look like the best version of themselves. With the help of talented makeup artists the transformation is often astonishing! Any creative ideas are welcomed and all ages and sizes are catered for . I use my design background to my benefit when making props, sets and I sew a lot of custom pieces for the dress up closet. The boudoir room sets are part of my home studio. The Boudoir side of it  evolved to hen parties as we all love to dress up for those occasions and I  have a VERY large dressing up closet! Booking as a group makes the whole shoot very affordable and more fun. I travel to hotels and venues nationwide with my makeup team for the photo shoot parties. This involves, bubbly, makeup and dressing up before being photographed looking your best! To date the most popular themes are Burlesque and pin up styles. It is a great way to have fun and have a memento of yourself  ooking amazing. The hen’s are always buzzing afterwards and feel great heading out on the town all madeover!

My day with Natalie was amazing she made me feel so at ease as im no model, i did feel a bit special on the shoot and would do it again in a flash!

So to all you brides to be our all you besties out there this is definetly a way to spend your day!!  Bottle of bubbly Makeup and hair stylist Photographer and costumes galore!! And you dont even have to leave your own county as Boudoir Girls Will Come to You!

Electrical Festival

Short and Sweet Just like me.
As you all know this weekend is one of
the best weekends in Ireland and its all
happening down in Co .Laois at the
Electric Picnic. Ive got the mattress in
the back of my jeep and some nice pillows
and a snuggly blanket now i dont know how
much of these im going to see but the options
there eh? Im still in the middle of my ever
so big fashion crisis on what to wear so ive
decided just to bring it all!!  again just to
have the option : ) So it will be bed early
and up early after a long day of planning
and running around the town and im now ever
so tired, but hey ill be a long time dead for
that sleeping marlarky this weekend!
So if your going be safe Rock your Body!

What it feels like for a girl.


Every Girl Dreams of their wedding day at 
Least a few times in their life-time
before it actually happens. As im a bride to be
myself after being proposed to on a beach in 
Koh Samui Thailand on new years eve i havent 
stopped thinking of what my day will bring.
Like any other bride ive been trawling mags
and blogs and the internet looking for some
inspirations. My future wedding will take
place somewhere warm and sunny like Lake Como
Or Lake Garda where we can take a boat trip
to the church and eat outside in our own
little garden party with fairy lights twinkling
in the night sky and lanterns hanging of branches
catching your eye. The sound of people laughing
Bare feet dancing in the sand and music to keep
us smiling all night long. Although my idea of
a dress has changed a lot i still go back to the
long ivory chiffon backless with lace detail
giving out a boho vibe ( boho kinda girl really )
with my hair in a simple tossled curl With a flower.
My men will be in navy suits and bridesmaids
wearing duck egg blue barley green or salmon
pink..  i love daisies and bluebells buttercups
and lilac flowers and hope to add some in my
little fantasy wedding.

Meeting my future husband changed my life
he is one of the nicest people i have ever 
met and my best friend to this day.

So from here i am now a happy bride to be 
searching for her perfect wedding and an 
unforgettable day dancing shoes beautiful 
flowers cupcakes cake simple wedding favours 
happy smiles blue skies good food
sunsets and break of dawn champagne with strawberries
something old and something new...
