Six Months In New York 

After arriving in New York in late September, I am officially 6 months here. How has it been settling into a new country? Settling into the US for me was easier as I had lived here for 3 months previous, although moving here more permanently is different. When you are on a summer visa your priority…

My Black Friday Top Picks

Everyone is sharing black Friday code blog posts today, so I thought I’d mix it up and show you my favourite picks from the different sites. A few people asked me if I was heading into the shops tomorrow seen as I live in the States now. I’d only go in there if I had…

Apartment hunting in New York 

Apartment hunting in New York is a nightmare- there is no easy way to say it. Moving to New York sounds glamorous but deciding which apartment is least likely to get a rodent infestation is the reality. If you find somewhere that seems perfect, more often than not it isn’t. That being said I’ve managed…

Recent Zara Purchases

I was so happy when I realised the Zara sale was coming to an end, was it just me or did that summer sale feel as if it went on for months? Finally, the new A/W ’17 stock is coming in and I have already gotten my hands on a few items. Just click on…

Dress Code: ‘Jeans and a Nice Top’

Summer Dresses

Follow my blog with Bloglovin This will probably be my last summer post for this year but while the sun is still shining (the odd time) I thought I would share some of my favourite summer dresses. It is still July after all and while some days might be filled with showers I won’t be putting…

Slider Love

We have been blessed with a pretty good Irish summer this year compared to past ones. It’s not that frequently in Ireland where you can slip on some sliders with jeans and not be worried about the possibility of stepping into a very large puddle. The last few weeks I’ve been living in the following…

Summer in Sardinia 

Sardinia has always been on my very lengthy bucket list. Its beaches seemed like the closest to the Caribbean beaches you could get on a short haul flight from Dublin. I can say it didn’t disappoint. We stayed in the San Marco apartments overlooking the turquoise ocean and white sandy beach. The San Marco hotel…

Chloé Dupes

This season Chloé is really making an impact with their accessories. The Chloé Nile bag is especially popular having been carried by anybody who thinks they are somebody at recent fashion shows. I’ve always been quite a fan of the Chloé bags but if like me you do not have over €1000  to spend then here…

Gingham Galore

Gingham has been a huge trend this Spring/Summer and I must admit its ones of my favourite trends. I was never a fan of gingham previously, it reminded me of a pattern my Mam used to force me into as a child. I’m sure I won’t love it forever which is why I enjoy buying affordable…
