I hope you had a not so miserable Monday. I don’t care what anyone says or how much you might love your job – Monday’s are still hard! For once, I actually stuck to my plan of not doing a whole lot as intended and just chilled out for the weekend. It was bliss. If you follow me on Instagram then you might recognise this outfit from last week when I wore it to my brother’s confirmation.
These culottes are probably one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe – they’re just so much fun and well, sassy! Try as I might, most dresses just don’t suit my shape so I’m always more comfortable in separates. I think the day of feeling like you’re not dressed up unless you’re wearing a dress is long gone. I’m always of the opinion that you should wear whatever you like and feel comfortable in, as long as the fit is good. That’s my only rule – get the sizing right and after that throw the rule book to the wind. Fashion is supposed to be fun!! View Post
Friday, Friday, Friday..oh am I happy to see you! Last week I only worked two and a half days between the bank holiday Monday and having time off for my brother’s confirmation so this week has felt like a marathon in comparison. I have absolutely no plans for this weekend and I couldn’t be happier about it. Most weekends I would have something on like a friends birthday or a family event etc so I’m looking forward to just coming home this evening, putting my feet up and chilling out.
This look is a combination of old and new pieces in my wardrobe. I’ve had this sleeveless blazer for ages and it’s usually a piece that I wear during the Autumn/Winter but I think paired with this white bell sleeve blouse it works for this time of year. I was doing a big clear out of my wardrobe recently and I rediscovered a few pieces I had forgotten about. Check print is really back on the scene at the moment so I was delighted to find my sleeveless blazer and not have to fork out for something new. I had been eyeing up this checked blazer for a few weeks but my thirst for something checked has thankfully been quenched for now. View Post
I hope you are all keeping well! The weekend before last was a bank holiday here in Ireland. Now usually, a bank holiday means one thing and one thing only – a very heavy weekend. When I say heavy, I mean a weekend filled with fun, frolics and of course ones fill of alcohol. As I’m sure most of you know by now, I am pretty much always up for a weekend of antics but this time around I just didn’t have it in me. I was feeling a bit worn out and in need of some R’n’R. Whenever I need a bit of space or time to relax, there’s always one place I know I can go that will help and that’s Ballyconneely. It really is my favourite place in the world. View Post
Happy Thursday Everyone,
I hope you are all having a fabulous week after the Bank Holiday weekend! I’m finally getting around to posting my complete travel guide to Nerja. I have already posted about my favourite restaurant in Nerja and a day trip that I insist on you taking if you are in the vicinity. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been going to Nerja for over twelve years now so I like to think I’ll be able to give a helping hand to anyone who is thinking of visiting my favourite Spanish town.
Nerja is situated at the most southern point of Spain and is famous for it’s Balcon d’Europa. While the Balcon is truly stunning, there are so many other reasons to love this quaint town. One of my favourite things to do when I’m there is to go for a walk up the backstreets with my grandad and admire the elderly ladies selling fresh fruit and vegetables from their patio doorsteps. It’s just an authentic Spanish town and even though over the last few years it has become increasingly popular, it still hasn’t lost it’s charm or become commercialised the way so many other Spanish towns sadly have.
This time around I went with 9 other brilliant ladies, so, in short, the craic was had. I won’t delve too deep into said antics (what happens “on tour” and all that)..but I will give you all the best tips on where to stay, where to eat and where to wander!
Here we go.. View Post
I’ll start this post by making a very bold statement – If you’re in Nerja, you simply cannot not go here. In other words, you would be crazy to miss out on the experience of dining at Restaurant 34. And that’s exactly what it is – an experience. From the second you step into Restaurant 34, you know that you are in a place of sheer luxury. No matter how many times I have been here, each time I am still taken back by it’s decadence and opulence. Nerja has no shortage of beautiful restaurants from quaint, authentic tapas bars to more modernised ones but this place tops them all, every single time. Having been here before and coming on holidays with another nine ladies, I just knew I had to bring them here. I was so sure that they would love it as much as me that I went ahead and booked the restaurant three months in advance. View Post
