I do. Me too.

















My idea of a wedding dress changes alot . These images help me to find what exactly im looking for and give me inspiration for the design. Im thinking i might get it made and put my own design to it. The second picture is a beautiful bridesmaids dress i like and the colours like barley green and duke egg blue all sing a lovely tune in my brain when i think of my wedding day.

Ill be thrawling blogs  and websites untill i finally come up with what i want.

I have time on my side so theres no stress! is there?


Hope you enjoy the images. I could of posted ten more. So beautiful.

This Year is very exciting one for me as this is the year that i organise the biggest day of a girls life!  Yes yes Im getting married!  to the man i waited and wished for, for a long time. I am still searching for the right dress. ive seen soo many now and have tried on a few and still dont know what i want. Let me tell you its not easy choosing as you  (well me) kinda want the flowing dress  and then you want the big dress and then you want the lace with chiffon and its sooo confusing as there is sooo many out there and if your anything like me where im into all kinds of fashion and styles and cant just keep to one the whole time i like to mix things up try new things but mostly try and be that bit original at the same time!!

Since we have decided to get married in Italy On The Amalfy Coast My choice on dress has changed as it will be warm over there and i want to be confortable so i might go for an all lace dress maybe with a little back on show or grecian type.

I came across this website Magpie Vintage and ive seen some of the most amazing jewellery and headpeices!!  I would like to wear a headpeice on my day i think after i take off the veil i would still like to have something in my hair.

Heres some images i came across on the website and my next post wil be on some dresses that gave me some inspiration on what type of dress i will be going for !!!

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!

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...

On A Whimsical…..

Galway has got some lovely cafes through the whole city.
And now added to our fabulous list is SWEETY PIES.
I had the pleasure of taking a seat in there fab place and
ordered a soup and a scone and they came in lovely vintage
china cups and saucers and a lovely smile from the girls 
who were swanning around bringing the little girls cupcakes  
they specialise in and have a massive table with all sorts 
of flavours and designs and sizes..its a display you just
want to eat!! They serve soups and sandwiches and fab 
salads and hot scones with fresh cream and jam! My Fav : )
the group of ladies high tea and a selection of sambows on 
tiered plates. The decor was warm and inviting and you just 
felt like you were at home. As my lovely friend paid for 
lunch i complimented the owner on her fab new cafe and she 
was  lovely and sweet just like the name over the door...
I will be returning...very soon....
Sweety Pies is situated off Lower Abbey Gate street 
across from the bakery Oven Door and Fair Trade.


Then on my way home i came across a new charity shop on the
corner and popped in as i do like to give to these stores
when im spring cleaning and will always purchase something
from them if i enter a store so today i found a lovely very
old Teddy Bear that i had to have and i called him Dafoe
so he is now perched on my bed , his new home.
Being such an eventful day and was,nt over yet i strolled
into a flower shop and came across this vintage picture
with the words "Dance like no one is watching" which
is a saying im familiar with love so that also found
a new home right over my bed and little tired out Dafoe...

What a lovely day it was......
Heres my day in images....

Hanging Onto Time..


Well oxygen is in full swing.
Mud up to their elbows i hear.
Im a tad jealous as i was suppose
to be going myself working in
the VIP area doing Makeup but
it fell through- "overcrewed"
was the words used so after i
picked up my heart of the floor
i immediately did what any other
fashionable chic would do and
went internet shopping and yes
it made me feel a whole lot
better. As im sitting here on
my lovely bed knowing that theres
two tickets to Electric Picnic
on my fridge and a new wardrobe
of festival clothes flying across
the sky as we speak i really
couldnt be happier
With Kate Moss as my Festival
icon i threw together some
inspirational images that have
me long is it till
Electric Picnic?
