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!

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.

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.

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…
