Cork Fashion Week I’m writing this as fashion week draws to a close. Only one more event this Thursday – a vintage night in the Oliver Plunkett.

Hands down, best weekend!  I got to Electric Picnic  this year! A festival I adore  but only get to attend every second year (due to work commitments).

I’m a touch afraid of certain insects but I’ll taste most foods no matter how disgusting they are, and don’t mind blood and gore (on the big screen obviously), as much as some.
