The Secret Obsession -Blog officially turned 1 last Saturday and of course we celebrated in ULTIMATE style. I invited 10 of my wonderful readers to join me for Afternoon Tea at the Westbury Hotel, Dublin. 

I still can’t believe it has been a FULL YEAR since I began writing. It just goes to show how time flies when your having fun. Over the past year, the blog has become my life. My boyfriend, friends, family and work colleagues are constantly hearing about the blog.

It’s a 24/7 job and I’m constantly thinking about what’s next…. My life really does revolve around it now. I absolutely love doing it and as I mentioned at the tea, I blog because of my huge love of fashion/beauty. Before working for Kurt Geiger, I worked in the beauty industry for three years as a make-up artist/skincare specialist so I would consider myself fairly knowledgeable on both the fashion & beauty side of things. 
Each reader that came got to take away a fabulous Goodie Bag. Have a look what they got HERE.

 How cute were our place names that my boyfriend Andrew made for all of us??

The afternoon went amazingly and it was so great to finally meet some of you. I asked each of the girls some questions about the blog, what they liked, didn’t like and what they would add or change so it was brilliant to get all your feedback. Ciara asked me about my YouTube Channel and said she was really looking forward to that, Linnie said she loved my baking section of the blog and nearly EVERYONE said…..GET an Instagram! Haha…So your wish is my command and guess what??

I finally have an Instagram…Follow me @AOIBHE_DEVLIN.

The YouTube channel is promised. Once I reach 10,000 likes on FB I said that will start it. Subscribe to my YouTube Channel HERE.

I want to thank all the companies involved in our birthday celebrations, Marissa & Sarah @ Cocoa Brown, Fionnuala Bourke, Tara @ Only, Sasha @ NoPolka/Carousel, Lisa @ Cari’s Closet, Daria @ Origins, Lynn @ The Wright Venue, Ciara @ Blanchardstown Centre, Amy @ Buff Makeup and Luke @ Vita Coco and finally Val from The Westbury Hotel without all your help I wouldn’t have been able to put it all together so THANK YOU. I also want to thank Ami McPartlin from LegallyBlonde Hair for doing my hair. Check her out HERE.

I know it’s early but I’ll let you into a little secret 😉 I am planning a BIG Christmas Bash for EVERYONE to come so stay tuned for details. 

Love Aoibhe xxxxxx
