Sara to move salon...but she'll miss beau
DUBLIN model Sara Kavanagh has admitted she will miss her boyfriend Alan Byrne when she moves premises next month.
The AR model has been working alongside her fitness instructor beau for the last year but has now decided to branch out on her own.
The loved-up pair teamed up for a joint business venture in the summer of 2010, which saw Sara (25) open her own beauty salon, while partner Alan started his own fitness and yoga centre next door. The happy couple have become used to seeing each other morning, noon and night as they work and live together, but Sara says she felt it was time to have her own space.
"I thought it was about time to move on, I'm looking forward to a break. Alan is staying behind in the premises in Sandyford and expanding his gym and yoga area. I'm starting out in a brand new space in Dundrum Town Centre now. We are used to being around each other a lot, and we used to always have lunch together so it will be a bit strange and I will miss him," she said.
"But I think it was about time that I branched out on my own. Alan is just going to have to get used to having lunch with me in Dundrum now," she joked.
Meanwhile, Sara admitted that she was confident about opening her business in Dundrum, despite most businesses suffering in the recession. "I know it seems like a bad time to do it but I make sure I give my customers so many deals. I'm always trying to think outside the box."
