A mini-travel guide to Orléans
Last weekend myself and my friend Lyne decided to go on a little girly getaway for a few days. We didn’t want to spend too much time travelling because we were rather limited for time so when we saw that Orléans was just a short drive from Paris, we packed our bags and booked a hotel for the weekend. In today’s post I’m sharing some of my favourite things to do in Orléans with you guys as well as the photos from my trip.
My Goals for The New Year
I can’t believe that we’re over two weeks into the new year and I still haven’t made a post talking about the ambitions that I have in 2019. Recently I was catching up on some blogposts about 2019 from Wiishu and Erika and I felt really inspired to write something similar. I love the kick I get from reading other people’s goals and talking about this always gives me the spur of motivation that I need in order to get my life together.
When the year is as fresh as it is in January there is so much potential for anything to happen which is exactly why I feel so pumped to make the most of every day. For this post, I’m going to follow the template that Erika made on her post just because I think it’s the most simple so I’ll be dividing my goals up into four separate categories; travel, career, relationships and well-being. Hopefully this post will inspire you guys to focus on yourselves and make the most out of 2019 too!
A Touch of Cashmere + How It Feels To Be Home
Here I am, back in my seaside town in Ireland for the holidays. I’ve taken a long pause from social media over the month of December and especially over the Christmas break where my time was largely spent catching up with friends and family. It’s crazy how quickly time has flown by. It really feels like just yesterday I was still in Paris, shooting outfits and filming my vlog about going home. Since making that video and landing home, it really feels like the time I spent in Ireland, opening presents with my family under the tree and sitting all around the kitchen table, eating countless turkey and ham dinners and drinking bubbly has gone by in the blink of an eye.
The Day My Dreams Came True
Today was by far my most insane moment since living in Paris. Never in a million years when I was packing my suitcase to leave my little country town in Ireland would I have imagined that I’d get the opportunity to work as a model in the fashion capital of the world.
I just uploaded the vlog of my trip home to Ireland and it honestly feels so strange to be back in Paris. I’ve spent the past week trying to settle back into life in France but I had such an amazing stay in Ireland that I couldn’t help but feel especially homesick even before I got back on the plane again.
Everything about going home just felt so surreal, being in my own bed, seeing my old bedroom in my parents house and all of the things that I left behind, not to mention the hometown that used to be apart of my everyday life. It’s crazy to think that now that I live in Paris, none of that is in my routine anymore. Going home to Ireland felt so nostalgic and so bittersweet and the time went by so quickly it almost feels like I dreamt it.
A Halloween-Themed Day at EuroDisney
It’s no secret that October is my absolute favourite month of the year and Halloween my favourite holiday, so when myself and my friend Lyne started to talk about going to Disneyland to celebrate both of our birthdays we just couldn’t let the opportunity pass by.
I have been to Disneyland Paris only once before but honestly it seems like the more I go, the more I fall in love with the magical ambience that the park creates. It literally felt like being a Kingdom Hearts character for the day as we explored the colourful main street, the battlements of the castle as well as the various different worlds of Disney movies that the park enabled us to dive in and out of. Everything felt so immersive, especially because there were so many elaborately coordinated parades of colourful dancers, songs from all of my favourite childhood films playing around every corner as well as some of the most charming boutiques I have ever visited.
Of course going to EuroDisney means that I snapped a tonne of photos, especially of the Halloween decor so I’m super excited to share this festive October post with you guys! Oh and by the way there’s even going to be a vlog on my channel later this week 😉
A Travel Guide to The South of Portugal
The long summer evenings are finally drawing to a close and as a last hurrah to get my holiday blues in order before going back to college in Paris, myself and my family decided to take a quick trip to the Algarve to mark the finale of our summer. Located in the very south of Portugal, the Algarve is a region in which I found myself becoming utterly enamoured with the embellished sandy beaches, enormous cliffs and of course, warm (yet breezy) weather.
