A common misconception about shopping ethically that I hear is that it costs an arm and a leg to buy new, ethically made clothes. In today’s post I’m going to share some sustainable fashion brands that I’ve tried and loved and that won’t cost you much more than any other high street store. Let’s start.
It was hard for me to make the change to wearing mom jeans and to be ok with it, I’m not going to lie. I’m only 5’2 so daring to wear something that carries the risk of making my legs look smaller and stumpier than they actually are was no easy task but recently when I was in River Island I found the most perfect pair of mom jeans I have ever tried in all my days. So needless to say, I have been converted.
Autumn is finally here which means that it’s time to bring out the shades in your wardrobe that match with the harmony of the falling leaves on the trees. Autumn has always been my favourite season for two reasons; the first being that the colours are just so warm, so ethereal and the world is practically dyed a different shade of beautiful by the faint sun that shines through the trees as well as the multi-coloured leaves that fall from them. The second reason is because it’s just so delightfully cozy and that’s exactly why I’m coming to you for today’s post from the comfort of a Parisian cafe corner.
Hey everyone! I hope you’re all doing well and that you’re having a lovely September so far.
When I was back in Ireland during the holidays last month it was pretty much a rite of passage for me to go to Boots and to see what they had. Since it doesn’t exist in France and we don’t always find the same products here, I always have so much fun browsing the rails for makeup and beauty bargains so today I’m super exited to share what I got with you!
Here I am back in Paris and back to my daily routine of taking the metro, climbing a million steps as I run up and down the streets of Montmartre and drinking my weight in coffee just to stay awake as I strike the balance between running my blog, working and studying all at the same time. For today’s post I wanted to talk about some goals I have laid out for the content I want to put out this year!
The Guinness Storehouse is no doubt at the epicentre of Dublin’s must-see cultural and historical landmarks. Any Irish person can tell you all about how the beer has made a name for us all over the world and it’s not just an old reliable on a night out in an Irish pub, it’s also probably the most globally renowned symbol of Ireland to ever hit the international market. Go to any big European city, any Irish bar in the United States or even in North Africa and Asia and you won’t struggle too hard to find a Guinness.
Having grown up in and around Dublin my entire life, I never really took the time to hop on the Luas and visit the factory where this world famous beer is made, besides what do you do when you’re from Ireland and you’re already well acquainted with everything there is to know about the iconic stout? Well…you take advantage of the photo opportunities of course.
No matter where we may be in the world, the Irish always have been gifted at adapting to new cultures and new customs. We have a long history of immigration that is still ongoing today with housing crises in all our major cities, lack of public transport pretty much all over the country and lets not forget the harsh climate that we all have to endure on our little island.
While I’ll never regret emigrating at such a young age, there is a huge amount of things about home that I miss a lot. For today’s post (and since I am still in Ireland) I thought I would share them with you! Let’s start.
