Sat 23 January 2016, 10:00 – 15:00 GMT
Fiona and Nicola are back! This time they will be launching their 2016 #DIDI events in Airfield Estate in Dundrum. The events will be even bigger and better in 2016. Want to be motivated and inspired by real women with real issues?
Learn. Laugh. Love.
Need to take stock of your life? Then this is the event for you.
Enjoy good food, good company, get some fashion tips. Hear about how other women live their lives. We talk about beauty products and breast cancer; fashion and fearing rejection; losing weight, gaining weight, depression, nutrition, careers, parenting and much much more. Openness and honesty are the order of the day - and laughing, lots and lots of laughing and encouragement.
Special Guest Speakers on January 23rd are:
Karen Constantine aka Lovely Girly Bits
Fiona Uyema - author of the recently released 'Japanese Food Made Easy'
Niamh Cahill - imagine suffering such a catastrophic brain injury that you have to learn to talk again. Niamh will share her inspirational story.
Noreen Doyle, MD of Irish Billtong Co - while she was pregnant with her fourth children, her then 2 year old was diagnosed with leukemia. Noreen talks openly and frankly about coping with the harsh realities of life.
The Style Shaper and The Brow Artist will also be sharing their top tips.
Our guests are welcome to enjoy the beauty of Airfield Estate and take a wander around the stunning Overend House at the end of the event.
As always there will be brunch and goody bags.
We can't wait to meet you!
Fiona Dillon is one of Ireland's best known food bloggers. Having published seven books in the last two years, Fiona is often asked how she has gained such a foothold in a very crowded literary market. She also writes for the Farmers Journal's stand alone glossy magazine,' Irish Country' and is the food correspondent for KCLR96fm's The Saturday Show. A mother of four, Fiona's journey from career woman to self-sufficiency guru has been well documented across national media and the airwaves. She is an ECar Ambassador and, in June this year, won a silver medal for her Freddy Buttons garden at Bloom 2015. She is currently working on expanding the Freddy Buttons brand internationally and is also a restaurant reviewer for TheTaste.ie
In 2014 Nicola Carolan, aka The Naked Blondie, began blogging and documenting the diary of her weight loss journey. Through her blog and social media, she shares her increasingly popular recipes and her struggle and determination to get healthy and change her family's lifestyle. Her positive and motivational attitude has garnered a huge following on social media. She has become an inspiration to many people, both here in Ireland, the UK and worldwide, but not least Jamie Oliver.
Fiona and Nicola have found inspiration in each other - they will share their experiences and opinions in this frank and open audience so that you too can be inspired to follow your dreams.
*Fiona will sign copies of her books after the event.
