SUZANNE Jackson really is a one stop powerhouse when it comes to social media for celebrity fashion, beauty and lifestyle.
I met the beautiful young Suzanne aka SoSueMe at a recent photoshoot for the upcoming RSVP magazine’s December issue. I have heard so much about her from my models and wasn’t disappointed when I met her. From someone who had no job and no prospects six years ago, she has become Ireland’s most successful blogger with over 1.1 million international readers a month, 270k Facebook fans and 146k Instagram followers. That’s what’s called good entrepreneurship. The shoot was focused on the old guard of the fashion industry - yours truly - and Suzanne.
We were tasked with giving each other a make-over. It was great fun and she was a pleasure to work with. She was very impressed with the clothes I picked for her from the boutiques in Limerick city and county.
Of course, the conversation was all about her upcoming wedding as she is on the hunt for her wedding dress. I am sure she will be one beautiful bride! Look out for us on the December issue of RSVP, which should be hitting the shelves soon.
Hi Magazine awards
IT was off to Cork I went next for the Hi Magazine awards. Munster's largest style awards event took place in the beautiful and newly renovated Clayton Hotel Events Centre. Over 600 of the most stylish from all counties in Munster were in attendance with Limerick well represented from the city and county. Last year's winner, Liz Mangan attended as did Catwalk Hair and Beauty owner Neisha Leahy, who won Limerick's Most Stylish Lady and the Holman Lee Agency model Edwin Fitzgibbon walked away with Hi Magazine’s Male Model of the Year 2016. Yours truly won an award for style, devotion and training of some of the top models in Ireland. It was a fantastic night hosted by Hi publisher Michael Mulcahy.
