Blue Coat + Black Accessories

Givenchy Antigona - Patent Boots

I had yet another wardrobe clear out here in New York last weekend and when it came to this bright blue coat, I must admit I was VERY close to adding it to my Depop pile. The girls and I always joke that New York has literally turned us all anti-ANY kind of bright colour and 90% of the time, you’ll see me in nearly all black. But I just couldn’t let this one go.

5 Reasons Why I’m Learning to Love Fitness


A few weeks before Christmas, after getting extremely fed up of being constantly tired, I decided it was time to make a change.

Black & White Collar Dress

Black & White Collar Dress - Wallis Petite Dress

You guys will have seen me wear this black & white collar dress while I was at home over Christmas and I can honestly say I’ve worn it so much more since I’ve come back to New York.

So although I’m now based here in NYC, a goal of mine for 2016 is to showcase more of our beautiful country through this new ‘Ireland Travel Guide’ series. I’m hoping that my international readers will love this idea (and maybe give you the motivation to visit) and I’m also hoping that it will give my Irish readers the nudge to explore more of the absolutely amazing places that are right on our doorstep…

My Winter Uniform + Weekend Recap


I’m pretty sure I’ve developed my Winter uniform, without even realizing it. I’ve been living in chunky knitwear and leather pants and I don’t think this will be changing anytime soon.
