To say Cath Kidston is an inspiration to me is an understatement.

So, last night I had an amazing experience! I had the pleasure of meeting the very talented designer Cath Kidston in the stunning location of the Marker Hotel in Dublin.


What’s not to LOVE..Cath Kidston, Canapés and Wine!! I was in my element.

 From the moment she entered the room the excitement and anticipation was palpable. It was a room filled with tea-dress wearing, Cath Kidston loving woman with the odd man or two looking shifty!

Cath was interviewed by the very competent Melanie Morris : Editor-in-Chief/Beauty Director of Image Magazine. The interview was engaging from the start and Twitter went into meltdown with #imageinspires trending in Dublin from the get-go!

It was fascinating to hear first hand how Cath has made her rise to fame from small humble beginnings in her Interiors shop in Clarendon Cross near Notting Hill in London to having global success!

One of my favorite quotes of the evening was…

       ‘A founder is someone who has found what they love doing’  

Cath was a gem and her honesty, work ethic and humbleness was truly inspiring.

I felt very privileged to have been given the opportunity to have a few words with Cath while she signed a copy of her book for me ‘Coming Up Roses’.

To say the night was FUN is an understatement! The Gin and Tonic Mojito’s in the Marker Bar afterwards were the icing on the Cath Kidston cake!


This solid chocolate handbag was especially made by the chef of the Marker Hotel for Cath upon her arrival at the hotel..amazing!

Thanks to Image Magazine for a fantastic evening and for all those beautiful gifts in the goody bag which included Butlers Chocolate, a Max Benjamin Candle (which smells devine!), Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream and a pretty 2016 Diary.
