I’m finally back to a normal(ish) routine after a few days away in Nerja in the south of Spain. If you’ve been following my blog from the start then you’ll know that my grandparents live in Nerja for around half of the year and I’ve been going there since I was 12. I absolutely love it there. I’m going to be doing a separate post on everything you need to know when going to Nerja but for now, I’m going to be talking about the idyllic village situated in the mountains not far from Nerja – Frigiliana… View Post
Happy hump day everyone! I hope you’re all having a fabulous week, am I the only one whose week is flying? Today’s post is all about my number one accessory, that I couldn’t be without – sunglasses. I have so many pairs, both expensive and inexpensive. The leopard pair that I can be seen wearing in the above photo, they were Penny’s finest and I actually bought three pairs because I loved them so much. Sunglasses are the type of accessory that you can never have enough of. They keep out the sun, cover those bags and add a pinch of personality to your look within seconds. View Post
Happy Monday everyone! First off, I want to start by saying thank you SO much for the amazing response I received for my last blog post. It was by far the most personal I have ever gotten here on my blog and I was quite intimidated doing it but ye were all so lovely and supportive. So, thank you!! Even though it was my birthday on Friday, I took it (relatively) easy. I went to Athlone for the day and met one of my best friends for a catch up, some shopping and lunch! There ended up being more wine drinking than shopping but I did manage to pick up this red leopard print skirt.. Leopard print..me? Never! I know, it’s verging on a problem at this point but I just bloody love it?
I love the ruffle detailing on it. I definitely think I will bring this with me when I go to Spain in a fortnight! I’ll be just like one of those Flamenco dancers. And at less than €20, it’s definitely something worth dancing about 😉 View Post
As I write this, the clock’s just turned past midnight and it’s now the 3rd of March, making it my 24th birthday. In the days leading up to my birthday, all I could think of was “Omg.. 24… you’re so old.. you’re one year away from the quarter century club..” etc etc. I kept thinking of it in a negative way which really was absolutely ridiculous. I feel like people my age put such pressure on themselves (myself included) to achieve things by certain ages, that when the plan they made for themselves as a clueless 14 year old, don’t go exactly as they had anticipated, they feel like they’ve failed or not done enough.
For instance, when I look back at the conversations I had with my friends when we were teenagers, four out of five of us probably thought that we would be engaged by the age of 27/28. In my eyes, 27 was the optimum age to get engaged, kids definitely by 30? Where this came from, I’ll never know but it certainly makes me laugh looking back on it because there’s no way you can really plan how that stuff and most of life turns out. You just have to go with it, make the most of it as possible and enjoy everything you can along the way.
I really do believe that life is about those small moments, the memories you make with friends and family, the hours spent laughing until your cheeks hurt and the nights spent dancing until your feet hurt.
Life’s too short not to enjoy yourself and there definitely isn’t time for moaning about being lucky enough to age another year. With that in mind, I decided I would make a list of the 24 reasons I have to smile and the things I am most grateful for on my 24th birthday!
Okay, here we go..
What would blogger’s do without Instagram? Or more importantly, where would bloggers be without Instagram? Other social media platforms may come and go but in my opinion, Instagram is definitely the go to platform for those trying to gain attraction to their sites. It’s quick, it’s visual and it’s longer lasting than app’s like Snapchat. While Snapchat is great and very interactive, I love Instagram because it’s that bit more permanent. You can scroll back through years of your favourite blogger’s posts and it serves almost as an album.
I use Instagram, of course, to showcase my own photographs and veer attention towards my own website but mainly, I use Instagram for my own personal enjoyment. I am constantly on it. I use it as a moodboard for all my fashion wants and wishes. With that in mind, I thought I would share with you guys, my absolute favourite fashion bloggers and their accounts that I am forever getting inspiration from. Hopefully you do to!
