Happy 2nd Birthday Retro Flame!
So today is Retro Flame’s 2nd birthday! Two years ago today, I started this little blog of mine as a way of having all my outfits, inspirations, travel and work finally together in one place. I had just finished my fashion course and was starting into my second year of Commerce in Galway and I guess, Retro Flame, was a way to keep my creativity in tact. It has since turned into more than I ever could have hoped for and I honestly just couldn’t imagine things without it! What on earth would I do everyday!? It’s funny how, when you put your mind to something, you really can make something out of nothing and I’m really grateful that Retro Flame was the little project I decided to start working on! There are times, of course, when I wish I had more time for other things (blogging tends to steal a lot of your time) but I really never could have anticipated all the wonderful opportunities, collaborations and friends it has brought me during these past two years.
Also of course, a huge thank you to each of you who read and follow Retro Flame’s adventures. There was quite a while at the beginning where I was just writing to myself, so you can imagine how nice it was when other people began to be interested too. Hopefully you’ll stick around to see the projects, trips, adventures and fun this coming year will bring!

The weather has been so lovely the past few days, so I’ve been spending lots of time at my local beach, Rossbeigh, where I took these photos. When I was in London last week, I treated myself to this Topshop Pink Jumper and I now have a feeling that jumpers will definitely be my obsession this Autumn! There are lots of similar versions to shop in the links above.
Hope you’ve all had a lovely start to the week!
