SEAT Ireland & Mango Competition Winner

Back a few months ago SEAT Ireland announced a very exciting competition in U Magazine to celebrate the launch of their gorgeous new city car the Mii By Mango and I was lucky enough to be involved (and also get to test drive the car!)
Mii by Mango
The competition ran in U Magazine and the prize up for grabs was…. Wait for it……..A €1000 to spend in Mango PLUS a styling session with me! Plus your very own photoshoot to feature in an issue of U Magazine! Pretty amazing prize if you ask me!!


Fast forward to 3 weeks ago when the big day arrived and I met the very lovely winner Lorraine Quirke , from Galway. I met Lorraine at Mango on Henry Street on a sunny April morning, and to say we were excited was an understatement!

Lorraine was a dream to work with and style, she was so open to ideas, which was great! I loved styling her! She almost had to pinch herself every time I kept bringing more and more clothes to the changing room to her 🙂
Here’s just a selection of outfits she tried on the day:

She kept saying how surreal the whole experience was, and I have to say I think I enjoyed it almost as much as her. I say ‘almost’ because she got to walk away with €1000 worth of brand new clothes!!!!


After the shopping part of our day was over, it was time for some pampering. Lorraine got her hair done by the brilliant team in Peter Marks and then we whisked off to the very fabulous Morrison Hotel for some lunch, followed by make up by the incredibly brilliant team at Make Up For Ever.

All dolled up & ready for the shoot!

Both myself and Lorraine also had a chat with the very lovely Brenda from U Magazine, to check out our interviews and to see the full feature, be sure to pick up a copy of the latest issue of U Magazine which is on shelves now 🙂


It was a truly brilliant day from start to finish, and I think one that Lorraine will never forget, I know I won’t! A massive thank you to SEAT Ireland for having me as part of this brilliant campaign, and also to the team at Mango & U Magazine!
