Of course the one and only MISS TAYLOR SWIFT announced her international ERA's tour dates while I was working and had to officially out myself as a massive Taylor Swift fan to everyone, as I fan girled so hard trying to register for pre-sale tickets.
I have loved Taylor from the very start with Pictures To Burn and Teardrops On My Guitar, but have always been aware that she is not everyone's cup of tea....so much so I am the ONLY member of the team who likes her.
But here is my confession LOUD & PROUD I am a massive SWIFTIE!
I am currently manifesting that I WILL GET ERA's TOUR TICKETS. And the whole family is on a mission to get us there. We have even registered for pre-sale across most of Europe (which may seem extra but its the bare min for a Swiftie). With me and my mum strategising flights, trains and hotels. We need SIX tickets all together with myself, my boyfriend, two sisters, mum and auntie all wanting to see her!
Dublin's hotels are already sold out for the weekend that she is here, which is over a year away. THIS IS A WAR to get hands on these tickets, they will be like gold-dust and I am prepared to fight! So light a wee candle for me (or as many as you can).
So instead of this blog just being me expressing how much I love Taylor Swift to an annoying point, I thought I would highlight some of the amazing small businesses making beautiful Taylor Swift themed products that I have found over the years.
Maybe you will find something for your ERA's Tour outfit along the way!
The Dreamscape Society

Dana is a woodworking and laser-cutting artist based in Georgia, USA. Her pieces featured 3D maps, typography and stadiums.
Since the start of the ERA's tour she has been releasing beautiful stadium pieces featuring the stage set up.
These are definitely an investment piece (as they are on the pricer side) and a true piece of art.
This is an amazing candle company based in Glasgow, Scotland who make soy candles inspired by Taylor Swift songs.
Now I can't imagine anything better than my house smelling like, All Too Well 10 minute version Taylors Version. Or maybe Clean or Cornella Street.
Dóchas Designs is a small, black owned business based in Dublin, making Irish Handmade Gifts, Art & Homeware.
Their pieces are based influenced by local and popular culture with a focus on making it colourful and fun.
They have beautiful items based on Taylors 'Anti-Hero' song from the Midnights album, featuring Hello I am...The Problem.
Bella is a qualified Nail Tech from Colchester, England is specialises in press on nails which she has hand painted for you to put on at home.
She has some beautiful Taylor Swift sets, which are perfect if just want nails for the concert. I also know lots of peoples jobs don't allow them to have their nails done so this is a great work around.
I hope this inspires some of you Swifties out there and if not, it can just be a gift guide of what to get me for my birthday or Christmas.
*hint hint hint*
Anyways, cross your fingers, light a candle and say a pray for me getting Eras Tour tickets.
