WE ARE delighted this week to be linking up with one of our favourite blogs, Life’s Lust Haves.
One lucky Life’s Lust Haves Blog follower will have the opportunity to be the star of her own creative photo shoot, like the one pictured here. She will be styled by Nessa Cotter who is behind the blog, have make up done by Cork Make up Artist Louise McCall, hair by creative hair stylist, Lisa Nation from Boston Belle and be photographed by the crew at Wee Red Bike Photography.
All you have to do is log on to blog www.lifeslusthaves.com and write a comment under the “Photo Shoot Competition Post” on how you would love to be styled for your own photo shoot and why you should win this prize. You must also ‘Like’ these pages on Facebook- Life’s Lust Haves, MakeupByMcCall and Boston Belle.
To give a taste of what readers can expect here’s a shoot done by the above team which we love. Nessa explains the background to it: “I am a personal stylist and blogger which means I shop for other people and spend hours on end researching fashion, style and live and breathe for the fashion industry.
“One of my biggest passions is working on fashion photo shoots.
I got together with three of Cork’s top artists in their field and we created a photo shoot that showcased all of our own individual styles and talents. We wanted to create looks that represented both Enchantment and Darkness and so I chose bridal wear from Bella Bleu Vintage Bridal Store on South Mall in Cork and evening wear from The Ivory Closet Dress Hire in Limerick.
“I borrowed some vintage pieces from Miss Daisy Blue in Market Parade on Patrick’s Street and some really eye catching jewellery from VSL Jewellery from Keanes Jewellers and The Shoe Suite in Cork. We used non-traditional bridal looks that I think would be breath-taking for any bride on her big day along with some edgy editorial looks that were a lot of fun!”
