Irish Morning Routine

A New Video From Ireland

Way before the virus broke out I filmed this slow morning routine video when I was home in Ireland. The video is all about self care, skincare, makeup and taking time out to reflect.

Going back to Ireland always gives me a lot to think about, especially when it comes to my place in the world. I grew up on a little island out in the Atlantic and how I’m living in a city as densely populated and as cosmopolitan as Paris.

Anyway before I start to get too philosophic, I really hope you guys enjoy the video!

That’s all from me for now and I’ll see you very soon!

Beginning of Spring OOTD


It’s been a long time since I actually went outside in Paris to take some photos of the city I love. No matter where I go here, every photo turns out to look like the backdrop of a movie poster in the cinema and it feels amazing being able to appreciate that again.

Something I can never get enough of about the city is the thrift stores here. Two months ago we found this fluffy white coat in a vintage store and I’ve been smitten with it ever since. It’s so soft and so stylish. It makes me feel like both an ice princess and a girl in a hip hop music video at the same time and if that’s not a mood then I don’t know what is.

How to Find an Apartment in Paris

Every step I went through to live in Paris


Paris syndrome hits hard when it comes to apartment hunting, especially when you realize just how competitive it is to find a decent place to live in the city.

In this post I’m going to be sharing with you all the steps I had to go through to find my apartment in the city centre. Brace yourselves, it’s gonna be a long one.

Soap & Glory Haul

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!

Studying in Paris

Another New Video

There was no November vlog because I was counting on making a college struggle video at the end when all of my assignments were due but then the strike happened.

Instead then I’m going to be talking about what it’s like to study in Paris. Enjoy!

And have a lovely Christmas Eve.
