    Reasons Why Penneys Will Always Be My Favourite Shop #LiveLifeLovePenneys

    Being the clothes obsessed eighteen year old girl that I am, I cannot put into words the love I have in my heart for Penneys. I am constantly in my local Penneys in Clonmel picking up things.

Primark is everywhere in England. You can’t travel far without finding one so you never need to panic! 2) The prices are beautiful. All the latest trends are brought in, they look exactly the…

    10 Things I Won’t Miss About School

    So the Leaving Cert results are out and it’s time to head out into the big, bad world. The thoughts of leaving school are scary but here are ten things that I won’t exactly be crying about… 1) Attempting to plan a bladder timetable. “Miss, can I go to the bathroom?” “Why didn’t you go at lunch?” Oh hang on, let me just ask my bladder why it’s being so inconsiderate…2) “Always be yourself” *dyes hair* “Dear god she went against the regulations of my kingdom, unleash the flying monkeys from my office asap!”3) When you’re doing meditation for religion and your stomach decides to choose this moment to make…

    The Stress Of Unnecessary Leaving Cert Hype. Head Is Pure Fried.

    Now that the Leaving Cert results are out I’m questioning whether the stress was worth it. Gained about 20 stone from excessively eating dairy milk whole nut bars and have no nails left from nervous biting. I also did not appreciate just being a number in the system. Why is there such a crazy hype around the Leaving Cert? There are plenty of other routes, and why do you need pointless subjects that don’t relate in any way to the job that you want to do? The maths course is ridiculously horrendous and I will only use the simple parts again so why did I spend so long trying to…

    Because you can’t beat a good old size 10!

    Things that I’m not happy about today- Trying to make my waist recover from squeezing into a size 8 pair of skinny jeans twelve hours ago. World War 3 has broken out on my face. My house is bloody FREEZING. Probs having something healthy for dinner. Things that I’m happy about today-  There is carrot cake in the kitchen. This is one of those days where I’d be expected to be hit with comments such as “Have you put on weight? It suits you”, “You look awfully pale, are you feeling alright?”, “Maybe if you try blah blah blah your skin might clear up a bit” Thanks for the concern…

    The Most Adventurous Thing That I Have Ever Done

    So as many people may already know, I am the biggest girly girl you will ever meet. Ever. I wouldn’t be seen dead in a tracksuit in public and the word sport may as well not exist in my vocabulary. The amount of trees that were probably chopped down to cater for my fake sick notes for PE classes during my 14 years of school is quite worrying. Yes, I know I’m fairly boring. No sense of adventure, no longing to risk my life jumping from a plane or swimming with sharks etc. However, about two weeks ago this dramatically changed as my sister persuaded me to go on a..dun…

    Things Men Do That Women Don’t Get

    No matter how much we long for men in our lives (don’t deny it), it is no secret that we want to kill them 98 percent of the time. What is it in our nature that makes men and women so different? Why can’t both genders come to a mutual agreement on which way to leave the toilet seat? Why do men find it so difficult to understand that we need an emotional breakdown at least once a week in order to make it through the next week? Sometimes I just need to cry for no reason at all, this is usually met with a hug from my mum and…
