    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. Whether it is for nights out or lazy days, you are always going to find what you are looking for! Here are a few of my reasons why I love it so much. 1) Penneys is everywhere in Ireland. 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…

    What Is So Hot And What Is So Not.

    Things that make me happy right now and things that make me say “headz pure recked lad” Hot1) Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes baby. As much as I hate to admit it, those genes combined are no doubt going to bring greatness. 2) Garth Brooks coming to Ireland! Oh no wait, awkward… 3) The World Cup 2014, I love football! And by football I mean David Beckham and his sons. Possible future toyboy perhaps? 4) Jumpsuits. As long as its not bright orange you can’t go wrong! 5) Unshaven legs on girls are so in fashion right now! Ok, so I lied, boys don’t really appreciate the gorilla look as…

    Leaving Cert Distractions

    I know I haven’t written a blog in aaaages so here goes! My Leaving Cert is in less than a month, so here is a list of ways of how you may fail it if you are anything like me 🙂 I am so easily distracted. 1) Tell your mum that you’re not bothered about getting a summer job. Trust me, once that four day rant starts you’ll wish you were studying Sexual Reproduction in Flowering Plants… 2) Sit through every history class not listening, but pointing at random old guys with moustaches in your book and say “That’s you!” to the person beside you. You should probably only do…

    Snapchat: The biggest mistake of your life…

    So as a girl who uses Snapchat everyday, I have decided to share my top 10 Snapchat rules! Yes, they may seem like common sense but trust me, one wrong click and you could be single forever… 10) Don’t make the mistake of ‘Oh I’ll send this really hot guy a really ugly snap because it shows I can have a laugh’, it’s been 4 hours, he’s not going to reply… 9) Only send sudocrem selfies if you’re ready for the consequences that follow. 8) Always place the writing over that spot that has developed into a second head. 7) If you’re going to send buck tooth or cross eyed…

    Countdown Of Annoying Dad Habits

    My Dad Steve is quite an eccentric man, so I decided he would be a lot of fun to write about! Here is a countdown of all his annoying habits, I could have gone on forever… 20) When he refers to my sister and I as ‘Flea’ and ‘Meredith’ Flea…really? 19) ‘Fe, since when don’t you like Spaghetti Bolognese?’ SINCE THE 4TH OF JANUARY 1996. 18) When he continues to call my bestfriend Amy ‘Amy Turtle’ 8 years down the line…Who the hell is Amy Turtle?  17) When he says ‘That gets right on my tripe!’ I have recently been informed tripe is cows intestines or something vile like that.…
