About me

My name is Rachel Farrell and I'm a 20 year old journalist from the outskirts of Dublin. I've been blogging since the mere age of 14, and since then have gained valuable experience in the Irish fashion industry. I now work as a digital journalist for Independent.ie.

I graduated last year from DCU (Dublin City University), where I was editor of The Look magazine and Deputy Lifestyle Editor of The College View. I also previously worked as a fashion stylist at Ireland's largest pre-loved designer store. My blog was my portfolio and diary all in one growing up, and I'm so grateful for the opportunities that have arisen from it. Check out my 'Press' page for more! 

Brands I've worked with over the years: Boohoo, New Look, Pretty Little Thing, Toni & Guy, Three Ireland, Entertainment One, Peroni..  to name a few!
