A Package Arrived From Soap and Glory….

Whenever I’m in Ireland for the holidays one of the first things I always make a point of doing is pampering myself. The beginning of the new year is always a time where I want to relax and decompress as much as possible to prepare for what lies ahead and so I love spending long lengths of time in the bathroom lathering as many lotions and potions as humanely possible onto my skin. Just being able to go to bed smelling good and spending warm and cosy evenings curled up on the couch after a hot shower is one of my favourite things to do. Soap & Glory are an amazing brand for helping me achieve this zen because their products are just so softening and they smell amazing… oh and did I mention that adorable packaging?

Let’s see what’s inside the hamper!

Christmas Magic

Pre-Christmas Excitement

VENDOME3

Christmas is almost here and I’ve never been more excited to leave Paris for the winter and head home to Ireland! This is just a short little post to show off some Christmas vibes as well as my new favourite coat that I nabbed on Asos. Unfortunately it is from a fast fashion brand but I make exceptions here and there when I find pieces I know I’ll wear for years to come. The best thing about it is that it has pockets and it’s so warm and snuggly for the winter.

Christmas Outfit Shoot in the Place Vendôme

The Place Vendôme is one of the most expensive areas in Paris. It’s a luxury fashion hub and people from all over the world come here to visit the haute couture fashion houses and to buy rare jewels from them. If ever you’re lucky enough to afford diamonds from the most exclusive luxury brands, this is the place to go to.

At Christmas every year the decorations here are always stunning and the glimmering lights on the trees always reflect the glittering gold jewellery and diamonds that you’ll find in the window displays.

Anyway here is my outfit…

Modelling in Paris

 

In today’s video I got to model in a photo studio in Montmartre with some of my friends. Honestly it was a crazy experience because I’ve had so many opportunities to do little modelling jobs here and there in Paris and A LOT of them involved me standing out in the cold for hours, shivering between changing outfits. It felt so good to be warm inside a photo studio!

You’ll see in this video that we played a lot with different lighting, poses and effects to create the best portrait photo. I really hope you enjoy! I’m going to leave the photos down below so you guys can see the result of the photoshoot.

The Most Sustainable Pants In My Closet

Thrifting Video and Purple Pants

 

If you guys have seen my latest thrifting video over on YouTube you’d know that I’ve been trying plenty of new styles and vintage looks lately. Every time I find something beautiful in a recycling centre, secondhand store or on Depop for cheap I just get such an adrenaline kick out of it. Not only is buying second hand way cheaper than buying new but also it’s guilt-free shopping that has a low impact on the environment. I can’t stress enough how fun it is to thrift and it’s such a great feeling whenever you find something that you like.

Now let me tell you the story of my velvet pants.

October Outfit Edit (Part One)

Two of My Favourite Outfits for Autumn

Autumn is here and so is my favourite season! As an autumn baby and a libra myself I have always really resonated with the change of weather in October. I just love to see the leaves falling from the trees, how the colour palette of the world changes from green to orange and how all of the autumn warm colours contrast with the dark blue sky in the evenings. The weather this time of year is perfect for hot cups of tea, chai lattes, warm blankets, cuddles and cosy sweaters and what could honestly be better than that?

I really come into my element in the Autumn and especially during October because I get so excited for Halloween, my birthday and just spooky season in general so it’s a  given that I would feel like my style is at its peak this time of year.

If you guys watched my latest lookbook on YouTube you’d see a lot of my favouite outfits that I’ve been wearing in Paris lately but I still thought I’d share some photos here too.
