My first few days in New York

My first few days in New York

Hi everyone

As this is my first post of 2018, I’d first like to wish you all a Happy New Year. I hope it’s a healthy and productive one for all of you.

As some of you might know from following along here on the blog and on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), I made the move to New York City on December 30th. I’d been talking about doing it for ages, and I’m delighted that I’m finally here (despite it being quite a surreal experience at the moment).

I’ve already fallen in love with the city. There is just something about it that you can’t quite put your finger on, but it’s magical. Especially seeing as I got here in the middle of the New Year celebrations, so there is a definite air of positivity with people throwing themselves into their new year resolutions and making plans.

Happy Tuesday Folks

I’m back today with the fourth of my Christmas Gift posts, and this one is all about jewellery and watches, for both the ladies and gents you plan on buying for.

Jewellery and watches make great gifts as they can be worn again and again, and can give the sartorially minded people in your life good options when looking to accessorise an outfit. Especially over Christmas party season.

Christmas Jumpers: More Chic than Cheesy nowadays!

Christmas Jumpers: More Chic than Cheesy nowadays!

Is it just me, or has everybody gone Christmas crazy earlier than ever this year? Normally I don’t acknowledge anything Christmassy until December 1st (at least) rolls around. But that old saying keeps springing to mind: If you can’t beat them, join them!

And so, today I decided I’d give in and do my first festive themed post. This one is all about the Christmas clothing staple that everybody buys for everything from lounging around the house on Christmas Day, to going on a ’12 pubs’ pub crawl: The Christmas Jumper.

Glendalough and my Bucket List

Glendalough and my Bucket List

Happy Hump Day All

Hope all your weeks have been good so far. If not, we are over the worst of it, and the weekend is almost upon us again. I’ve been a bit quiet on here the last week and a bit as I’ve had some life stuff to get sorted and the motivation to write had dropped.

If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter you may have noticed that I took a trip to Glendalough in the Wicklow National Park last weekend. Myself and a friend spontaneously decided to visit some friends in Dublin, and as Glendalough is only a short drive from their apartment (about a half hour) we decided to head there for the day before the Irish rugby and soccer games.
