It’s not often that I take the opportunity to pay a visit to one of my favourite places in Paris, but just the other day myself and my artist friend Hanna decided to take the camera with us and go exploring. The village of Montmartre really has so much character to it, not just because of the panoramic view of the entire city from its heights, or the Sacre-Coeur Basilica that stands on its highest hilltop. If you’re brave enough to wander off the beating path you’d see that the area is also full of charming little cobbled streets, quirky cafés and restaurants as well as some really inspiring street art.

Look Parisienne: The Graphic T-Shirt ft Stay Home Club

My Go-To Outfit In Paris Right Now

If you guys have seen my most recent post then you’d know that lately I have been completely and utterly enamoured by the adorable illustrations of Lorraine Sorlet, an independent illustrator here in Paris.

One of my top goals for 2018 when it came to our blog was to make more of an effort to support sustainable fashion brands as well as smaller artists, creators and designers. We live in a world where huge fashion franchises have a monopoly on what we wear and where we shop. This year I wanted to rebel against that. One of my all-time favourite places to do so when I go shopping is of course  Family Store UK, a Brighton-based boutique which is just an awesome place to shop for pins, patches, printed matter and apparel created by less well known labels.

 A little over eight months ago I completely uprooted my life by leaving behind everything I knew in Dublin to start over from scratch in Paris. This was definitely one of the stupidest, scariest and bravest things I ever did in my life but luckily I somehow found a way of making it work. Despite the success I have had so far in this city, the beginning of my journey threw a lot of difficulties my way so today I thought I would share five of the things I wish I had known before moving to France. Let’s start.

Fashion Revolution Week has just begun and the question “Who Made My Clothes?” is beginning to resonate within the minds of all influencers, instagrammers and consumers alike. When 2018 first began one of my main goals was to shop more ethically and support smaller fashion labels. While I’ve already talked about one of my favourite, more affordable ethically-made brands called Stay Home Club, today I wanted to feature something a little more high-end.
