Hello and welcome to Hippenings! In the words of The Wanted, I’m glad you came. (Remember them? I met one of them in a lift once. He had a very tight floral t-shirt on.) Anyway, my name is Laura Cunningham and I’m a cat-obsessed magazine editor from Dublin, Ireland. Working at the helm of Confetti, Ireland’s biggest bridal publication, means I’m completely obsessed with weddings, events, parties and pretty things. Hippenings was burning a hole in the back of my brain for years - I knew I wanted to do something, but what?! Then it came to me in the middle of the night. (Why do our brains do that? Hello, I’m trying to sleep here.) I became a woman possessed! I immediately began sourcing the most awesome party swag and gifts from all over the world (and some from right here in Ireland) to bring to you lovely lot. HIPPENINGS is my baby (well one of them, more on that later) and I really hope you love it as much as I do.
My aim is to fill your lives with gorgeousness. If you’re getting married and want something different, I’ll hopefully offer some alternative and original decoration and favour ideas. Having a party at home? Why not deck the halls with deadly stuff? I’ll also be bringing you original gift ideas from around the globe for your pals, or more importantly, you! After all, ‘me presents’ are the best kind.
There’s so much more to come from HIPPENINGS, with regular drops of exciting new stock and even whole new sections to be added. LADS, THE EXCITEMENT! I live for your feedback, so let me know if there’s anything you’d love to see on HIPPENINGS. And I love a good chinwag, so remember to connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. You can even follow me on SnapChat if you like (CunninghamLaura). You’ll see a lot of my other baby there; Mark. He’s a baby of the feline variety, by the way.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting my little Irish business.
You’re my favourite!
