Dude Looks Like A Lady!

Ok so who didn't love The September Issue? Its my go to boredom DVD, that I'll just have on in the background when I'm working or reading. Anyways Candy Magazine seems to have loved the film too, and its subjects Anna, and Grace. I would never have know these were all hot trannys either, well maybe the hairy arms give it away a little.

New Room, New Zoom

So Ive moved back home for a few months while I sort my life out, so I figured it was time to change up my bedroom. When you're 22 you need all the privacy you can get. I wish I had a before picture, but that would have been the smart thing to do, couldnt be doing that. Not on this blog. Anyways room is far from finished, I plan on filling it to the brim with lots of bits and bobs. And the walls, so bare, so lots of photos to be printed out, and maybe even a few painting to be done. Why not, I have a lot of spare time on my hands these days....


Brief Encounter of the Fierce Kind...

I love this editorial from American Vogue, the styling, from the one and only Grace Coddington, is spectacular as usual, and Daria Werbowy looks flawless. Makes you wanna pick up a camera and head for the hills!


One for the Boys!

Shot by Mario Testino (can't ya tell) Candice does Copenhagen features up and coming supermodel Candice Swanepoel and a bunch of boys enjoying all that Copenhagen has to off. Which apparently is not a lot of clothes shops. But hey, its for VMan, so this is one for the boys...


West Coast? No, Best Coast!

Okay so I know that Summer is about 5 months away, but its never too early to start listening to some future Summer anthems, like Best Coast. Their self titled debut album is like a 60s blast from the past, all you need to do is put the sun roof down and the speakers up. Summer 11 is going to be very cool, I can feel it...


12 Months of Chic!

A year of Vogue! I love these... collages I suppose you could call them. Its all the issues of Vogue US, Italia and Germany super imposed over one another, the end result is great...

Missing Person

I recieved this email during the week and I feel so bad for not posting it earlier. I can't Imagine whats its like to have a family member go missing, especially during Christmas.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Harcourt Terrace Garda Station on 01-6669500.


Friends.... I'm not sure if everyone is aware but my sister Blathnaid has been missing in Dublin since Tuesday December 14th. We now know that Blath was wearing the following clothes; 3/4 length black woolen jacket, red and black scarf, grey jeans and dark shoes\boots. She was last seen getting into a taxi on Sir John Rogerson's Quay at 8pm on Tuesday December 14th.

Santa lives in Chelsea!

Did everyone have a good Christmas? Thats good! (I'm assuming)

Anyways this video from The New York Times is perfect if you are in a Christmas comedown!

Hey, aren't you that guy that used to have a blog?

Hi friends!

Massive apologies for the tumbleweeds that have overtaken WHAM. But seeing as it is almost a new year, it is time to get back in the habit, Whoopi Goldberg style!

I finished up working in Topman, so I am no longer a Concessions Manager, I more upset to be losing my title than my job but thats how it goes. (also that sounds like I was fired, but I wasn't. I was once fired from Dunnes Stores when I was 17 though. Bastards.)

What else is new? Well I am now living at home and saving up moving. I hijacked my younger brothers room, just because I'm older. Its now a lovely egg shell colour (its actually Dulex Pale Peacock, but who the hell know what colour a Pale Peacock is?) I really wish I had taken a before picture, because the after turned out great. No I'm working on filling my new room with as many bits and bobs as I can, all from the charity shops of course. It's time like this when I'm rumaging through the bargain bin in The Somalia Shop (Yes! thats the name of a shop in Ennis) that I miss the markets of London.

I have some plans for 2011, one involves a Nikon D5000, so hopefully I'll get one soon and I can start calling myself a photographer. So I have a few projects to work on, but for the moment I plan on relaxing after a busy year.

Thats about all for the moment, I will leave you with this picture of a table that I really want! And maybe even matching chairs?


(Isn't she lovely?)

Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

The trailer of Red Riding Hood has me pretty intrigued, I do Love a dark twisted fasntasy story, but it is also directed by Catherine Hardwicke, director of the first Twilight film. Which was terrible. So that has me slightly worried, but Amanda Seyfried is pretty talented so hopefully it will be a fresh take on a classic.

Welcome Back...

After a 6 year absence from designing women's wear, Tom Ford debuts his first collection from the Tom Ford Womens wear line in the December issue of American Vogue, Shot by Steven Meisel. As you can imagine, its kinda a moment!

Ford’s most glamorous women friends and acquaintances, spanning Hollywood, music, society, and high fashion, had all dropped everything to fly in and model for him, no questions asked. With 100 guests seated expectantly, Ford stood by a mantelpiece, in black tie, with a mic, and introduced his cast as “many of the world’s most inspirational women,” proceeding to read out what they were wearing. “Ladies and gentlemen,” he declared, in old style–camp diction: “Please welcome . . . Miss Lauren Hutton, Miss Liya Kebede, Miss Rinko Kikuchi, Miss Rachel Feinstein, Miss Lisa Eisner, Miss Beyoncé Knowles, Miss Marisa Berenson, Miss Stella Tennant, Miss Amber Valletta, Miss Natalia Vodianova, Miss Karen Elson, Miss Lakshmi Menon, Miss Karlie Kloss, Miss Abbey Lee Kershaw, Miss . . . Julianne Moore!” By the time “Miss Rita Wilson” wiggled out, turned, and threw a lingeringly saucy, head-back, hands-on-hip pose in a “corseted fil coupe dress with thigh-high lace boots and black seamed stockings,” the atmosphere was “getting a little giddy!” she says, laughing. “I sensed people really enjoyed it.”

I can only imagine how inspirational that show must have been, as Tom Ford personally introduced each of his muses to the runway. Welcome back, Mr. Ford.



Jaime & Holly sittin in a tree!

Jaime Winstone is one girl that always looks great on the red carpet, whether shes going grunge with Alexa Chung, or glamming it up, like at The Variety Club Showbiz Awards. Jamie wore a stunning graphic maxi dress, reissued by Holly Fulton as part of Fashion East's 10 year anniversary.

Lulu Kennedy, the founder of Fashion East chose to celebrate its 10 year anniversary with a re-launch of ten dresses from alumni past collections. This is the organization that gives young designers an opportunity to launch their labels - some big names were discovered along the way, they are credited with helping launch Richard Nicoll, Jonathan Saunders, Marios Schwab to name a few.. and also Holly Fulton

Little Bit of a Bargin!

Is there anything more annoying than being at a concert and being stuck behind someone with a giant SLR! Or a sea of iPhones waving from side to side, which at the end of the night probably contain shaky out of focus shots.

Anyways hopefully this won't happen Saturday April 16th, when Swedish Pop Folk (Polk???) songstress Lykke Li comes to Dublin's Tripod. And with tickets starting at just €20 are on sale now.



I Don't mean to be rude, but you a fat monkey!

Flip-Flop-Skulptur von Florentijn Hofman: “The Fat Monkey is a site specific work which was created out of the question from the Pixelshow to make a sculpture during their conference in 2010. Made with the help of local students and made from the brazilian icon; the flip flop which obviously works as one of the 10.000 pixels. The fat monkey is a work in the series Obeastitas

Its amazing to think what can be done with a hand full of fill-flops and a bitta imagination. (Obviously there was more than a hand full involved but dont let that discourage you!)

Seeing Double!

Vogue China always brings something new to their editorials, in my opinion anyways. It is probably because we are some inundated with the skinny pouty white girls on the pages of Vogue UK and USA editions.

Plus Liu Wen (the Model) is bringing it in these shots, like an Asian Coco Rocha, lots of movement, lots of fun!

Shot by Yuangui Mei, Double Illusion will run in the December Issue of Vogue China.
