My Style – House and Home

Is today ever a happy Friday. This week I got my mitts on the new House and Home magazine, which = double excitement all up in here. Back in May my OCD finally paid off when I was asked to not only write but style the feature for the July / August copy of the magazine. Um, hell yes.
I’ve done some styling here and there but this would be my printed styling debut. To say I was bricking it was an understatement, but the moment I met Michelle and Andy, my mind was put at ease. They are the coolest and most down to earth couple, not to mention they’re crazy-talented with their thriving typographical printing business – DesignMyType. I had a great afternoon with them in their quirky, colourful and fun apartment. 

Stylin’ on so many levels. I snapped this cheeky pic of myself on the day, which to my surprise, managed to sneak onto page 8 of the mag! 

You can pick up the July / August copy of House and Home magazine on shelves now and check out the full feature on Michelle and Andy’s home, and of course, the rest of the mag which is full of swoon-worthy design articles, tips and tricks. 
I think tonight we will have a little celebration of my styling debut {any excuse really}. We’re also due to get some cracking weather here in Dublin, and I cannot wait to break out the picnic blanket and have some fun in le sun. It is long overdue. 
Happy Friday, homies! ๐Ÿ˜‰ xx A

    I barely know you and I am also proud as punch.
    I will be able to say I knew you when… 'blog-knew' you…
    'blew you?'.
    K, this just all went to heck.
