Home For The Holidays (Wearing Hades Wool)

A Touch of Cashmere + How It Feels To Be Home

h.png

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.

Parisian Street Style A La-Butte-Aux-Cailles

A Hidden Part of Paris

What is it exactly that comes to mind when you think of Paris? Before living here I used to dream about all of the clichés; champagne on the Champs-Elysées, riding a bike to the boulangerie and hanging out at Ladurée, sipping hot chocolate over a plate of macarons. But what a lot of people don’t know about Paris is that underneath the luxurious façade of the city there’s a thriving subculture of street style and grungy street art.

The 13th Arrondissement is one of my favourite places to experience this. Especially around the area of the Butte-aux-Cailles, one of the most hipster-friendly areas of the city and an unchartered territory for tourists.

Earlier this week a friend of mine invited me to spend a few days in the countryside in the South of France. If you guys follow me on Instagram then you’ve probably seen a lot of the snaps I shared of my trip on my stories. After going through the photos since my return to Paris, I realise I had a lot more to share than I originally thought so today’s blogpost is all about sharing some vibes from the French countryside.

The Nu Wardrobe

And The Importance of Clothes Sharing in the Fight Against Fast Fashion

Last week I wrote a post on The Five R’s of Sustainability where I addressed five simple steps towards a more eco-friendly closet. One detail in this blogpost I wanted to elaborate more on today is the importance of clothes sharing and just how fun it can be.

A little while ago, Aisling from The Nu Wardrobe reached out to me to talk about the devastating impacts of fast fashion on the environment and the creative way she and The Nu Wardrobe team are striving for a more ethical solution to our fast fashion addiction.

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.

This  past week I have been absolutely dying to escape the bustle of Paris and head to the countryside for a couple of days. My cousin, Mairéad lives a quick train ride from Paris in the North of France so we decided to spend a few days together in a small, but very charming provincial city called Beauvais.

Hey everybody! I hope you’re all doing well. I know it’s been quite a while since I last made a post on my blog but lately things have been quite hectic in Paris. That’s why for this weekend I decided to take a small break from the chaos of college and blogging and embark on a little journey to the South of France.

Over the weekend I got to visit Nice, Marseille and Monaco so look out for more travel posts to follow!

The first city of three that I visited was Marseille. It’s a gorgeous little port city located on the coast.
