OUTFIT | Denim for Days, and thoughts on entering Sixth Year



What I love about this denim jacket is that it is so easy to throw over any outfit, but will it just be as easy to throw my school bag over my shoulder and get my head stuck down for the Leaving Cert?

FASHION | Yellow - The Colour of the Summer


From Beauty and the Beast to La La Land, 2017 is the year of yellow in fashion. And there's no better time to rock the colour of the sun than summer!

MAKEUP | Face of the Day - Glowy Summer Look



It's all about glow right now. No, not the TV show (which is v. v. good, I recommend it), it's the dewy, minimalistic, radiant makeup look everyone is rocking these days...

MUSIC | My Festival Experience at Longitude 2017



Longitude Festival was a blast. While it was pretty hectic and crazy at times, the music and friends I went with made it the ideal summer weekend...

OUTFIT | A Summer Shirt and Ripped Jeans in L.A.


Time has flown since I came home from America. Roaming Vine Street in Los Angeles feels like a century ago...

TRAVEL | A Day in Mexico



I spent over twelve hours in Mexico recently - a quick, fun trip filled with new food, pretty views and driving along in a mini van!

TRAVEL | Jazz, History and Lots of Rain in New Orleans


New Orleans is a city like no other city in the USA. 
In the heat of Louisiana, it is rich with music, art, history, and heavy rainclouds…

TRAVEL | Bohemian Culture Walk


I’ve always loved reading, but recently my appreciation for literature has grown immensely. Dad, knowing this, and also being interested in literature, booked a Bohemian Culture Walk in Greenwich village with Literary Pub Crawl on our stay in Manhattan. Walking around listening to stories of poets and writers sounded like my jam...

OUTFIT | Central Park Culottes


Sometimes throughout my three days in Manhattan, I’d be walking along a street where yellow taxis fly by and skyscrapers scrape the sky, and I’d just say to myself: “Wow. I’m in New York.”

TRAVEL | London, Stratford-Upon-Avon and Warwick, oh my!


Last month, I got the amazing chance to explore London, Stratford-Upon-Avon, and Warwick Castle with my friends and classmates. It was a school, English-focused weekend trip; English is my all-time favourite subject, so a trip dedicated to Shakespeare was the dream getaway...

♫ "I like to be in America! Okay by me in Ameeer-i-ca!"

TRAVEL | Skiing in Auron


I began my 2017 skiing in the winter wonderland of Auron, France - there couldn't have been a more ideal way to spend the new year than with my family and snow!

Quick Queen of Quirk Fact of the Day:
Did you know my first ever blogpost was about skiing?

(Don't try and look for it; it's long gone).

LIFE | Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017



2016. What a year! While it was unfortunately a very dramatic, terrifying, and sad year for the world in politics, violence and global issues, I myself had a fantastic year. It was packed with many ups rather than downs. 
I learned, changed and experienced a lot...
