More Recent Press Features

I just thought I do a quick post updating you all on some more recent press bits and bobs, in case you're interested!

 Here are two press shots that were featured in the Advertiser and the City Tribune recently, from the opening of The Frock and Crock Sale, a charity event that was held in Lynches Cafe. I was more than happy to be involved with the press shots, especially since friend and fellow blogger Sinead Lally was organising it, and its always nice to help a friend out. Unfortunately work commitments left me unable to attend the actual event (boo!) but I was able to catch up on all the goings on via Sinead's blog here, g'wan have a click!
I was also featured in the Irish Daily Star yesterday in relation to my involvement with the Movember Ireland, a fantastic cause that I am very proud to be part of! We had our Mega Mo Party on Monday night in the Roisin Dubh and it was a huge success, there were free drinks and raffle games, I even won a prize!
This week I was also featured in the Advertiser for their "Proust Questionnaire" feature. The questionnaire one of my favourite pieces of the paper and so I was delighted to be asked to participate. Here is the interview if you're interested, since its nigh impossible to read from the photo!

 Climbing Trees! Or a nice bun.
Which historical figure do you most identify with?
Genghis Khan... Now there's someone I'd love to have a pint with!

I have to cheat and say 3: my sisters. They're a force to be reckoned with, and I've learned prettymuch everything I know from them.

My impatience! 
What is your greatest extravagance?
Clothes. I'd happily be broke and fabulous.
What is your favourite journey?
My favourite journeys are always going to new places, for new adventures!
On what occasion do you lie?
Rarely, and very poorly at that. Im a terrible liar, you can read it all over my face.
Which living person do you most despise?
I don't despise anyone, and am happy the fact. I save my energy for better things!
What or who is the greatest love of your life?
My french boyfriend Estoban. We met on holidays when I was 7. He had a blonde bowl-cut and dungarees. He had no English, nor I French, but he shared his bonbons with me. How I still pine for him!
When and where were you happiest?
Walking in Coole Park with my family and our four dogs.
Which talent would you most like to have?
I wish I could grow a mustache so I could participate in Movember Galway this year. I think a nice pair of  handlebars would look most fetching on me. 
What is your current state of mind?
Love, Freedom, Chaos, Experience, Excess, Now... in that order.
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
I guess I'd have to say staying true to myself thus far, and trying to have positive attitude no matter what. Those traits have led me to some wonderful places, and continue to do so. Im very lucky.
If you were to die and come back as a person or a thing, what do you think it would be?
A Unicorn.
What is your most treasured possession?
My sticker collection, that I've been adding to since I was 8. Im too old to trade them now, but I still collect them. Ive got furrys, shinys, holograms, the lot! I even buy rare ones of the internet. Its quite sad actually.
What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
To be in a trapped. Physically, mentally or emotionally.

Anything involved in the media, broadcasting or presenting, preferably.

Land! A few acres at least...
