If you have seen my facebook page lately www.facebook.com/becboop you might have noted that I am fashion editor of the CRAIC in Galway magazine! This is one of many projects I have been lucky enough to have gotten involved in as a result of blogging. The CRAIC in Galway is a fortnightly advertising directory in Galway of which 5,000 issues are distributed around Galway city and county. I write about Galway specific fashion news i.e. new retail outlets opening, sale previews, new collection launches and events in each issue. In addition to this I run a ‘Bec Boop Street Style’ feature which shows my favourite Galway street-style snap in each issue. (Bloggers if you would like to be featured you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org) In addition to this I have been featured in the magazine a few times including most recently when I met none other than Calum Best in Galway which you can read about in the current issue. Here is a little preview for you along with some snaps from the night in the Stock Exchange Galway.
The official launch party for this magazine is taking place tonight 26th October in Monroes Live Venue, Galway with some great bands and a fashion show all for free entry!! You can join the facebook event page here. I am super excited to announce that I will be hosting and MC for the fashion show and look forward to meeting some fashionista followers at the launch party! There will be some of my favourite Galway designers and stores taking part in the fashion show including Carrie Galway, Portobello Clothing, PIA Galway, American Dream Brides, Sunny Juddy designs and Olina Bridal.
Hope to see some of you there! I’d love to know what opportunities blogging has presented to some of you? It really is amazing and hard work certainly does pay off!
