    The Pros And Cons Of Your Sister Going Back To College

    Anybody who lives at home and has a sister in college can relate to the mixed emotions that return whenever it is time for her to go back in September. To be honest, for me it is usually relief, because even though I love the girl dearly we are always ready to kill each other by the end of the summer… Here are the pros and cons of saying goodbye to your most beloved companion (your sister, not your cat…) Pro-You have more time to yourself.Con- She is your sister, best friend,partner in crime, teacher, stylist, make-up artist, therapist and guardian angel, so you know, you kind of miss her…

    If Jack Dawson Existed In 2015

    I think many of us have grown up with the dream of finding an amazing man like Jack Dawson in Titanic to sweep us off our feet. And while I haven’t yet given up hope, I need to start looking a teeny tiny bit harder! I have no doubt that these rare male species are lurking around the globe somewhere, but in relation to many males I already know, Jack Dawson nowadays would be very different to how we saw him in 1912 (well, 1997, but you know what I mean.) So lets all take a moment to transport him into one of our male friend groups and see the…

    Rant Of The Week: How Mixed Veg Saved My Life (Well, Kinda…)

    So I don’t mean to be negative, but this has just not been my week at all! I always go on the trampoline with my iPod when I just need a few moments to escape from the world and get rid of some frustration, and trust me, that had been building up for several days… So anyway, me being the idiot that I am decided to go on the trampoline after a mini hurricane. It was going perfectly well at first, all cosy in my hoody with Taylor Swift’s I Knew You Were Trouble blasting in my ear. And well, I must say, even though I knew the previous thing…

    My Thoughts On The Balmain And H&M Collaboration

    Even though I’m not a huge lover of designer things, I am very excited about Balmain collaborating with one of my favourite shops H&M. Everytime I see a celebrity wearing Balmain there is just always something I love about it, I think it could be the structure, shoulders and often military style looks. One of the pieces from the collection was released recently and strangely enough I had a dream that my friend had bought it and hid it from me so I couldn’t steal it, which really is very possible! Anyway, I then woke up to pictures of the gorgeous Gigi Hadid wearing another Balmain X H&M dress in…

    Five Thoughts Every Girl Who Went To An All Girls School Can Relate To

    Unfortunately, for my secondary school years I attended an all girls school. It wasn’t by choice, but it actually wasn’t too bad when I look back on it now. Sure my pinafore wasn’t the most flattering, but does bottle green really look good on any 15 year old with braces and an unforch middle parting? Exactly… Here are five thoughts I had when I was in school, so I hope some of you may be able to relate 🙂 1. “Dear god when did I get so ugly?” Casually being surrounded by the occasional caked face and false eyelashes at ten past nine on a Monday morning… we all know…

    Five Things I Can Never Understand About The Male Species

    I very much doubt I’m alone when I say men are difficult creatures to understand. They think completely differently to women and are just from another planet altogether. Some things stand out more than others, and for me it’s these five… 1. The boy room smellA mix of lynx, a lingering scent from a gear bag and the occasional bit of fresh air from the window their mum probably risked her life to open. Why does every boys room smell like this but girls rooms don’t? Or am I just immune to the girl smell because of the fact I am a part of the female species? 2. Their extraordinary…

    Review: St. Moriz Instant Self Tanning Mousse

    Being the natural milk bottle that I am, I find it difficult to find a reliable tan that doesn’t make me look like I just finished a shift in Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory whenever the daylight hits me. A few weeks ago my brother actually openly said “woah, you look orange!” so yes, I find tan to be a bit of a struggle… When I posted a photo of an old bottle of St. Moriz on Instagram recently, they were kind enough to offer to send me new tan to try. Days later I received a lovely package which included – St. Moriz Instant Self Tanning Mousse in Medium, a…

    Rant Of The Week: Mini Social Media Heart Attacks

    As you read more and more of this post chances are you will only be thinking one thing: “Wow, this girl is weird,” unless of course you are a human being like myself, and in that case you may find this post extremely easy to relate to. I didn’t have much to rant about this week, I had a lovely week in Waterford with my friend and life was going pretty well. That was until I came across something on social media that I really really didn’t want to see. You know that feeling where all you can do is stare at the wall in shock and try not to…

    Carma Dresses: My Favourites

    Hiya ladies! It’s always lovely to find a new place to purchase some fab going out or day to day fashion, so I am here to tell you about Carma dresses. I was told about Carma dresses from a friend. I live in Tipperary, so a lovely woman called Alison Smith is the nearest Carma dresses representative to me. I have been looking at her page and falling in love with various pieces, and would like to show you my favourites. There is no doubt that winter is fast approaching, definitely feeling the chill these days! I looove this cardigan. I’m a huge fan of the blanket cape style and…

    Rant Of The Week: Is It Time To Rethink Who Gets Thrown Into The Friend Zone?

    After many sleepless nights, rants to friends, hours of deliberation, and a broken heart I have realised many of us are in fact idiots. And by many of us, I mean my friends and I (hey, if I’m going down, you’re all coming down with me). I’m not saying everybody does this, but I just feel I do so I should write about it. When looking for love, do we always friend zone the nice guys? I am so guilty of this. I spend my days telling people I want a fairytale romance and when a sweet, caring guy is ready to offer me that, I’m like “Nah, he’s too…
