This was an invite I couldn’t turn down.
Editor of Xposé magazine Deanna O’Connor very kindly invited me along to celebrate Zahra Media Group’s 12th birthday. Zahra is a leading cross-platform media company that publishes newstand titles Xposé, Easy cooking and Easy Parenting. I had contributed to Xposé magazine a couple of times and was flattered to be invited to their offices. See my contributions in the May issue and August issue.I had never been to Greystones before and was so impressed – I want to go back for a visit. It’s a really pretty little coastal town with beautiful eateries and boutiques. The party took place at their offices in Zoe House. It was lovely to meet and chat to the team in person and rub shoulders with the fashion and beauty experts I normally just see on TV. We hung out at their offices, which I thought was really cool. I felt lucky to be there.I wore my good old reliable white leather dress and everyone was asking me about it. I always feel good in this one. Full details here.
Take a virtual tour of the offices on my snapchat (@modafix).That’s Deanna’s desk and impressive sunglasses collection.This crew sure know how to throw a party. The rooms were so beautifully and tastefully decorated (some DIY inspiration!), there was whipped ice-cream, tarot card reading, music, delicious food, tasty cocktails (I opted for virgin daquiris as I was driving), death by chocolate cake – freshly made, games and nail art from Tropical Popical. The food was really, really delicious, but you wouldn’t expect anything less from the Easy Cooking team. I couldn’t get enough. The Tv3 Xposé camera crew was on hand to film the event.As you can see the offices are really trendy and I can tell it’s a fabulous workplace to operate from. The staff seem to be very well looked after as were the guests – everyone was friendly, welcoming and helpful. You can only see a small snippet in these images but there was a room full of stylish crockery too for the food photography – any foodie’s dream. I ate so many treats that I could have easily burst my dress. It was a long drive home in the thick fog, but I met some genuinely warm people that I want to keep in touch with.
