The Dublin Dairies

Tonight I really wanted to share a few snaps of my little business trip to Dublin last Friday. Yes that’s right folks I went on an abroad business trip which I’m pretty sure confirms my grown up business woman status…anyway, needless to say I was ridiculously excited when Benefit told me I would be heading to Dublin to help with the Christmas bloggers event at the brand new Dublin Benefit Boutique. In fact, I’m pretty sure I squealed when I was told (Such a grown up business woman thing to do).  My partner in social media crime was the lovely Rachael and it was with great excitement and sleepy heads that we got driven to the airport early Friday morning. Although we were primarily going for the bloggers event we also had meetings lined up with Twitter and Google at their Head Offices. The meetings were so interesting and I feel like I really learnt a lot about expanding social media channels and how the companies work. The offices themselves were so cool too, particularly the Google one which featured swings, flowerpot meeting rooms and giant letters that you sat in. You’re not really allowed to take photos of the office sadly so if you ever get the chance to go then jump at it! The blogger event was equally as wonderful because the Boutique is set in a beautiful old Georgian House and all the staff and Irish bloggers were ridiculously lovely- I even got recognised by Sian from Forever Fabulous in Bows! After the event we went to an alternative retro style bar where I had a tuna steak and papaya salad and a few cocktails- I did try and drink something similar to Guinness but even the Irish touch couldn’t make it taste good. Sorry Guinness/Ireland. While I was there I really fell in love with the vibe of the city, the area we explored just felt so quirky and cultural (and had an incredible bagel place plus many people with sexy accents)  and I definitely want to go back there on a proper city break sometime next year. After a sleep in a very posh Gresham hotel  room it was time to head home and I thought the excitement was all over…until Proudlock, Colin Farrell and Josh Hartnett walked onto our plane and sat two rows in front of us!!! OMG. I’m sure there are lots of ladies who will appreciate this moment as much as I did so I’ll leave you with the image of this sexy trio whilst I eat the cake me and girls baked  to celebrate the Great British Bake off final…
