A Limerick Lady with Love Life and Beauty
A Limerick teenager named Niamh Webb O’Rourke from Kilmallock has secured over 45,000 page views with her online beauty blog, Love Life since completing her Leaving Certificate last July. As well as writing her blog, Niamh works in River Island in the Crescent Shopping Centre and goes to college at night in Limerick city – she is studying marketing, PR, sales and advertising in Griffith College. Through her Love Life blog – the name was inspired by the Live Life motto of the late Donal Walsh from Kerry whose story affected her deeply – Niamh provides up-to-date information on the latest beauty must-haves. The blog also provides tips on how to make the most of your features and get the best out of your beauty regime. In terms of fashion, Niamh keeps her finger on the pulse and provides regular posts on the hottest new looks around. She also gives advice on dressing for your shape, and features snappy interviews with people in the fashion and beauty industry. However, it would be her dream to pursue a career in television presenting. “Something like Xpose I would love to do,” she smiled. “I love everything in the fashion industry. I love TV and I love styling.” Her latest endeavour has seen her launch her very own make-up tutorials on the video-sharing website YouTube which can be viewed by an international audience. While her blog has a light-hearted vibe to it, Niamh is aware of the pressure on young women to be slim and beautiful. Love Life, she says, aims to inspire women to embrace and enhance their unique beauty, no matter what their age, shape or dress size may be. See www.lovelifeblogireland.com for more info.
