The Career Diaries: My College/Career Path So Far.

A common question I get asked via my blog is how I ended up working in fashion and the media, or how I became a recognised blogger. Im also pretty sure I’m not the only blogger/stylist who’s been asked these types questions, right? I find these questions difficult to answer for a myriad of reasons, the number one being that I don’t want to disappoint people. I always do my best to explain that there is no easy answer. Career paths in the fashion and the media are rarely, if ever, laid out for people to follow. It’s all about making your own way, carving out your own path. But there is one way that I can help answer this tricky question, and that is by sharing MY path with you all, because in the end, that’s all I know. So, I  before I go much further with these Career Diaries,…

WildChild Updates / New Blog Series: The Career Diaries

I can’t believe this is my first post of 2014 you guys, where has January gone?! I really wanted to do a little update post, for you all, as I haven’t been the best at blogging over the past month or so, and for that I’m very sorry! As most of you know, Im usually a very regular blogger, but I have good reason for my absence, I promise! Things have been pretty hectic with work in iClothing recently, I’m busy working on some exciting new projects for 2014 with my team, as well as keeping up my regular shoots and styling work. I also have a few personal projects I’ve been working away on recently that have been taking up a lot of my free time, hence the lack of blog-posts. Now, I know it must be annoying to hear me allude to various projects without sharing any details, but…

2013 ~ Year in Review

Since I started this little blog of mine over three years ago now, I have written a “Year in Review” post every year, where I look back at the past 12 months, and all they have given me. (You can read my past Year in Review posts here and here.) I feel like I say this every year, but this year in particular has been so exciting, and I am so grateful for all the opportunities that have come my way. Here’s a look at some of my highlights from 2013: Moving to Dublin. Back in May, I decided to up-sticks and move to the big smoke, (a.k.a Dublin City!) to further pursue my dreams of working in Fashion and Broadcasting. Moving to a new city is always difficult, and I found that leaving my friends and family to be the particularly painful, but I was determined to make it…

WildChild Updates: Recent Press Features & Projects

This is just a quick post to update you all on some press features and projects I was involved in recently. The first is an article in the Irish Independent which I was featured in last Saturday, about the rise of online shopping in Ireland. I was asked questions about my experiences shopping online, and how I felt about it’s pro’s and con’s overall. As most of you know, Im a huge online shopper, so as you can imagine, I had a lot to talk about! A photographer from the paper also came to my house last week to take pictures of my wardrobe, and some of my favourite pieces I’ve found online.  It was a really fun article to be part of, and I was delighted with the finished piece, a double page spread in the Independent’s weekend magazine. If you missed the feature over the weekend, you can…

If you follow me on facebook and twitter you might have spotted me saying that I had some amazing news to share with you all. Since moving up to Dublin, I have been working really hard, and as a result so many opportunities have been opened up to me in regards to my career goals and my blog. I am so happy to to tell you guys that the big news is…. I have been appointed the role of Lead Stylist for the Irish online clothing company iClothing! Many of you would recognise iClothing (they are the country’s biggest Irish-owned online clothing company) and last Friday I went for an interview for their Lead Stylist position, which I really didn’t expect to get, but I went in anyway and gave it my best shot. A few days later I was offered the position! I will be working full-time with with the company, and…
