I’ll Probably Delete This Later
Its 3am and I just had to come on here and write this. Honestly I don’t know where to begin. Things have been hard lately.
I feel like everybody knows me as the walking cliché foreign girl in Paris who comes to the city after uprooting her whole life abroad to fall in love with cheese and baguettes and everything else associated with the most grotesque french stereotypes you can imagine. On instagram and often over here on our blog I’m posting constantly about how much I love Paris and on a very superficial level, my love for the city is real. I love the city as a city. No matter where you go here you’re always surrounded by beautiful things, chic restaurants, boutiques and cafés and every street is brimming with so much history that it would be impossible to know every single detail about it. But the truth about Paris is that trying to make it here as a foreigner is often misery.
How I’m Saving My Damaged Hair
I don’t know about you but my hair has certainly been through a lot over the past year. Between bleaching it twice, toning, straightening, and blow drying on a regular basis I’m not stranger to split ends, breakage and dullness.
Class of PrettyLittleThing
Summer is here which means that the time for champagne and celebrations during warm nights has arrived. For today’s post I teamed up with PrettyLittleThing to show you some amazing occasion wear that is perfect for weddings, classy soirées and also graduations. Their graduation store has so many beautiful dresses to choose from and I couldn’t be more thrilled to show you guys a few of my favourites.
Graduation is unfortunately not celebrated in France and it’s something that now, living away from Ireland I’m pretty sad to be missing out on. The way it works here is that you get your degree in the mail and that’s that. There’s no big celebration where we wear the robe, the hats and do the photographs while holding the degree but that doesn’t mean that we should skip out on the chance to dress up every now and again!
The Perfect Place To Snoop in Paris
Notre-Dame and the square surrounding it may be inaccessible after the fire that happened in April but that doesn’t mean that you should skip out on visiting the quartier of Saint Michel next time you find yourself in Paris.
How I Am, What I’m Doing
I’m always instagramming and my blogging about my favourite beauty products, places to visit and what to do in Paris at the moment but it’s actually quite rare that I come on here and have an intimate chat with you guys about the various things going on in my life right now. Today I thought I would share with you guys the different things going on in my busy schedule at the moment but be prepared, it’s all pretty hectic!
Life in Paris as a Local
There is so much to do and so many things to see in Paris but what do you do once you’ve already seen the Champs Elysées, The Louvre and the Eiffel Tower a thousand times? In today’s post I thought I would take you with me on this very normal day in my life in Paris.
