Queen of the Castle

And just like that, I was the queen of the castle…in Ireland!

Perhaps this is not what you expected for a fairytale look. This is a homage to all the antagonists such as the magnificent Maleficent. Ahem, goth glam anyone? There is nothing more alluring than black French lace gown that is intricately detailed such as this piece by Mason by Michelle Mason. It personifies elegance and beauty. And when you pair this look with dark makeup and vampy lips - you have goth glam in full effect. We don’t always want to play the norm now, do we? I think that’s why there were no children in the castle…I scared them all away! ;)

This fairytale shoot was taken on location at the Ashford Castle in Ireland. No words to describe this breathtaking estate, but to implore you to add onto your bucketlist. This five star luxury castle hotel is simply a dream come true. It’s a MUST go! What an extraordinary experience it has been to explore this country with all of its beautiful glory. With countless of sheep grazing in lush green rolling hills that goes on for miles and miles. Occasional rain that always ends with spectacular double rainbows. I had the opportunity to meet so many friendly folks, who not only are kind but very proud of their tradition in their homeland. The Irish culture is truly special.

This particular blog post is dedicated to a certain special someone (you know who you are) and to whomever need a little motivation in life. I wish for you to be the queen of your own castle. Yes, grass is always greener on the other side, but in reality it’s greener where you put the manure on! So get that shit in! ;)

We are in constant search for our purpose in life. I still am. We all are! We have opportunities all around us, so make it worth your while. Try new hobbies, make new experiences, and find what gives you the greatest joy. When you do, hold on to it and don't give up. It may take some time, but that’s the beauty of life: it can happen at any stage. Trust!

Have an ambition, stay inspired, and find your self-worth. Be the queen of your own castle. xx jt
