Old Places, New Outfits
Hello my lovelies! Happy New Year to you all! I really hope that 2019 is off to a good start for all of you and that you’re feeling just as motivated for the new year as I am.
For our first post of 2019 I’m coming at you from Ireland with an outfit that I was absolutely loving during my stay there over the holidays. This ensemble is one that makes me feel so killer. I don’t know what it is about setting foot on Irish soil that makes me want to embrase a wilder dress sense but growing up by the mountains and by the sea always made me feel so inspired by the ruggedness and unpredictability of the landscape. Whenever I touch down in Ireland I love letting that edginess and impulsiveness shine through in my look.
November in Paris
It’s hard to believe that my second autumn in Paris is almost over. Fall has always been my absolute favourite time of year and I’m always sorry to see it go once the winter weather starts to set in. It’s crazy how in the blink of an eye the season of pumpkin spice and colourful leaves is taken over by the darkness that winter brings.
In today’s post I’m enjoying what really feels like the end of the fall as I spend the golden hour in Les Jardins des Tuileries. This park will always be among my favourites in the Paris. If you come well equipped with a hot drink, it’s the perfect place to chill on a secluded bench away from the bustle of the city as you enjoy a bit of fresh air and with the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay right beside the immense space and the Champs-Elysées not too far away, it’s always pretty surreal to hang out here because there’s always something spectacular to see.
Smooth Seas Don’t Make Good Sailors
It’s been a little over a year now since I left my old life in Dublin in search of a new one in Paris. Being able to survive far away from home for such a long period of time and at such a young age is definitely something I feel very proud of doing.
Living abroad has taught me so many new things and has enabled me to overcome so many challenges that I never would have even been capable of imagining when I left Ireland as a naive twenty year-old. Today’s outfit is inspired by being able to adjust your sails to the waves life throws at you as well as the ways that living in Paris has changed my perspective on the world.
For Younger, Plumper, Healthier Skin
As the largest organ in the body and the window to all that is happening to our health on the inside, it’s no wonder why beauty has always been so strongly linked to healthy skin.
When I first entered the world of Korean beauty, it was really a breath of fresh air for my skin. These beauty brands really spoil us for choice and there’s so many high tech treatments and masks available that you just don’t see in the Western World.
While it did take me some time to get used to Korean beauty products and the way each product should be used in your regime, I feel like I have finally unlocked the perfect skincare routine to counter the effects of my busy life here in Paris. Here are some of my favourite products that I’ve used to date.
A Little Note on Self Love
Hello my lovelies! Happy Friday to you all. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, love is in the air here in Paris. And in light of that I wanted to share an outfit with you that was not only cute, sweet and elegant, but also the perfect ensemble for a special date with yourself, a loved one, or even an evening out with friends.
As with every year on Valentine’s Day, there comes the over-saturation of soppy couples on social media which often makes it so easy to feel down and out about not having an SO to celebrate with. It’s for this reason that I decided to devote today’s post entirely to self-love. Whether you may be in a relationship or not, self-love is such an important skill that has such a powerful influence over the way we live our lives.
However it’s something so many of us can so easily overlook and neglect to do. But what better time is there to appreciate who we are than on Valentine’s Day, right?
Here are my top tips for self-love as well as a little outfit for you. Let’s start!
