Little Break Away…

Hello Beautiful People ❤

I hope you’re all having a great day? Last weekend I stayed in the Killeshin Hotel in Port Laoise. It’s not too far from home but we had decided to just have a nice evening away some where. We found the Killeshin by chance and said one of the most overused Irish phrases: ‘Sure Why Not?!’

Casual Weekends

Hello Beautiful People ❤

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I am slightly fragile while writing this post. Alcohol is not my friend, yet I still haven’t learned my lesson. Mondays are always tougher when you’re sleep deprived.

Here’s a little bit about my weekend, hope you enjoy ❤

A Bit About Me

Hey Guys,

Happy Friday the 13th (cue the dramatic undertones) I know it’s supposed to be unlucky but it’s Friday so I’m focusing on that aspect. For today’s post, I’ve done a little ‘get to know me’ feature. I’ve been blogging for almost 8 months now and I felt that I should give a little insight into who I am and what makes me tick.

Favourite Colour: Black I can’t really say black can I? I’ll go for Blue. I love cobalt blue, it looks great with a tan!

Biggest Fear: Losing someone I love. I’ve always had an irrational fear of losing the people that mean the most to me. I was one of those nightmare kids who panics over everything! Sharks and flying are a close joint second!

My Most Irrational Fear: Cows. Yes I know it’s an odd thing to be afraid of, hence me acknowledging that it is an irrational fear. They freak me out with their staring and mooing.

My Pet Hate: People looking down on others and being disrespectful. I just don’t think anyone has the right to portray that kind of behaviour, no matter who they are.

I also cannot tolerate cruelty, whether it’s towards people or animals. It is not so much a ‘pet hate’ but actually something that really bothers me.

My Favourite Animal: My dog Belle is my favourite little person in the world. She has such a funny little personality. Aside from Dogs, elephants are my favourite ‘wild’ animal. They are so gentle and wise.

My Education: I have an honours degree in Marketing. I graduated in 2014 and although it was stressful, I loved what I was studying and have some amazing memories from the four years I studied. It is true what they say you can make some life long friends in college.

Three Things I believe cannot be bought:

  1. Style
  2. Manners
  3. Kindness

My Favourite Singer: I’m a huge music fan and I like a wide variety of different artists from Pink Flyod to Eminem to Beyonce, but Emeli Sande is the probably the voice that I could listen to all day. Her album ‘Our Version of Events’ is timeless.

My Most Annoying Habit: Being late! I wouldn’t mind I am never late to work, I am however always late to meet my friends and my boyfriend. One of my best friend’s pet hates is when people are late, it’s a wonder she hasn’t killed me. My poor boyfriend is used to it.

My Star Sign: Pisces, I’m a water baby. I was always swimming as a child and find it so therapeutic. Not sure where they got some of the characteristics below, but ‘has the last word’ is me for sure! 😛

The Only Movie to Make Me Cry: There have only ever been two movies that have made me cry; The Lion King and I am Sam. I’m not really a crier when it comes to movies and I don’t like soppy films at all, but these two got me!

Favourite Actress: I’d say Sandra Bullock. I just feel like we would get a long if we met. Realistically it would just be me hugging her while she tries to get away, but l’d like to think we would get along 😉

Favourite Actor: This is a predictable one but it has to be Robert Downey Jr. I just love everything about him. I’m also a huge Johnny Depp fan. I love him for all his weirdness.

The Best Advice I’ve Ever Received: Persistence is key. My parents always told me that if I commit to something I must be persistent as that is the only way I will succeed. They have their moments.

Eating Habits: I could pretty much out eat anyone I’ve ever met, if I allow myself to, I love all types of food and am never full!

My Favourite Hobbies: Aside from eating, I love to shop and travel. I am fashion obsessed and I am a danger to my bank account when I enter a store!

 

I also love to travel, particularly city breaks. I love experiencing different cultures and believe it makes you a more rounded person over all. I am fortunate enough to have seen some amazing cities such as Prague, Edinburgh Amsterdam, New York, Bratislava and I plan to see many more.

Random Fact: I really dislike Valentine’s Day, I think it has become all about money and about popularity. I’ve never had a bad Valentine’s Day but I’m just not a fan. Love should be shown all year round and not confined to one day.

My Family: I am an only child. I am extremely lucky however that I have a very close family and so was never a ‘lonely’ child. I consider my first cousins my siblings and I honestly would be lost without my amazing family.

Beliefs: I don’t believe in luck. I do believe in faith (I think) but when it comes to luck, I think we make our own.

What I’m worst at: I hate saying goodbye to people, if it is only for a few weeks, it makes me really sad. I really can’t deal with long term good byes 😦

My Life: My Family, Close Friends and my Boyfriend are amazing people and I am truly lucky that they make up my life. It’s the little things they do that make me love them all the more.

I need to take more pictures of the people I love as the above doesn’t reflect even nearly everyone!

So that’s a little insight into my life, I was unsure whether to do this post initially but I personally like to know about the author of blogs I read. I hope you enjoyed and are making plans for a wonderful weekend!

Until Next Time My Loves

Sunday’s Casual Attire

Hey Guys,

I can’t believe it’s Monday already, where did that weekend go? As I said in my last post, I stayed at home Friday and Saturday due to illness, but Sunday I decided to venture outside. As I was going for dinner, I wanted something comfortable but that still looked remotely decent.

It was of course freezing outside, so I wrapped up in my River Island leather jacket minus the fur (I still love that it is detachable!) My boyfriend also laughed quite a substantial amount at my hat but I still maintain that I love it 🙂

It was lovely to get out of the house and feel normal again for the day. We ended up staying in the place longer than we had originally planned; just eating, drinking and chatting. I don’t think we had planned to eat quite so much food, but we ended up going for the full three courses. I didn’t get a picture of dessert. It didn’t last very long!

I love days like this, they are what Sundays are all about!

I am back on healthy eating today guys and will be doing a post on it this week, so stay tuned. I hope you all had a great weekend 🙂

Until Next Time My Loves
