2010 Irish Blog Awards Nomination

Hot diggity damn and call me Nancy, we've been nominated for the 2010 Irish Blog Award in incredible is that? Thank you to whoever nominated us...

The awards are scheduled to take place on the 27th of March way out west in Galway. Now, sadly, I don't think we have a numb snowballs chance in Fuerteventura (it's a hot place) of winning as there are some seriously good blogs on the list like Simply Zesty, PuddleDucks, RedFly Marketing and This is Knit to name but a few. That said to be nominated is pretty nice in itself...I've enjoyed writing this blog and keeping you updated on what we are getting up to at LadyUmbrella ladies t-shirts - getting nominated for an award is just an unprecedented bonus. The business award is being sponsored by Red Cardinal so needless to say big thanks to them...

And so now, with 35 days left to the awards, I wonder will we make it to the final few blogs that get to go to Galway and if so what t-shirt should Elena wear?...which t-shirt would you wear? Thank you all for reading and please subscribe, follow, comment, tweet and all of that other good stuff..Stay happy..

Artvertisement in Pygmalion - The Two Part Mini Series (& deleted scene)

Those of you who have read this blog before or have frequented our facebook fanpage will be aware of the fact that we like to make videos to show off our ladies clothes. Our foolish forays into the silver screen led us to create our first 2 part "mini series" which you can see below.

Basically, we got very lucky and were allowed to put up a display in Pygmalion which is a nifty cafe/bar in Dublin. As Elena was making the display we had the idea of recording what we doing and to try make a sweet little video about it. Then one video turned into two as we wanted to try create a bit of intrigue - ultimately advertising an ad I suppose.

Part One of the mini series is entitled "The Murder Bird". To be honest I have no idea why it is called that. For some unknown reason that is the title Elena gave to the file when saving it before sending it to me and I couldn't think of anything better for arousing interest. I immediately had to watch after seeing the title of it so here it is...

We received some fun comments about the video like:
- I love murder mystery... maybe to John Terry!!!
- Is he diving into the picture to land on the blue shirt? I give him a 10 for the dive. :D
- Over the rainbow!
- lol, he looks pretty scary, I',m wondering if he's off to Transylvania!! xxx
And we would love to hear your comments here too...

We then released part two a few days later. Part 2 is called "The Artvertisement" and personally I think it is one of the coolest videos we have made yet. The way Elena edited it all and the music she chose for it is perfect I think..I'm also a big fan of the potato peeler and the spoon (my silly idea of humour - keep your eyes "peeled" and you'll spot them hehe). The video shows how we prepared and installed the LadyUmbrella display. Enjoy the zen the music will bring...

And now, the final clip to show you is the "deleted scene", the one that Elena was all to happy to cut hehe..Elena was the main "cutter outer" for the display (I lie, she did it all, I am useless with scissors) and so I had to call on my method acting skills for this scene (I lie again, I don't have any method acting skills and I'm not an actor hehe..). But I did see Elena cutting for hours so tried to imagine her frustration and is there a better cure for frustration than chili nuts and tea? if so, leave a comment and let me know...

And so, there you have it, our 2 part mini series of our Artvertisement in Pygmalion, Dublin and the "deleted scene" that you hopefully won't be see anywhere else...really hope you enjoy it as it took us hours upon hours to firstly make the display and then even longer to edit these movies..Leave some comments and let us know what you think and why not subscribe to this blog so that you don't miss any more of the deleted scene goodness..

LadyUmbrella T-Shirts in the Movie Booked Out

Hey all just a short blog post to let you all know that our ladies t-shirts are going to be used in a feature length movie called Booked Out. We are really delighted that our t-shirts will be used in this movie and can't wait to see how it turns out.

They selected two of our t-shirts for the movie LadyUmbrella is Friends with Sir David Attenborough and "What Came first the Chicken or LadyUmbrella? and were kind enough to send us in a picture of our tees being worn in rehearsals.

We really can't wait to see the movie when it is finished. Filming is due to begin very soon and you should check out the Booked Out Facebook Fanpage and become fans to get an intimate insight into how the movie is progressing...

And so, my question to you readers, what LadyUmbrella t-shirt would you pick for a movie if you were the director? Leave a comment and let me know...stay happy..
