South of France with Princess Cruises

May 29, 2017

Hey there,

Last week I visited Marseille and Toulon in the South of France with Princess Cruises. The Princess Royal Cruise ship was docked in the Toulon port, and we experienced a day trip, just as the Princess passengers would. We visited the quaint town of Cassis for lunch, enjoyed wine tasting in two vineyards and indulged in a very French meal on the Toulon port.

We visited the Ship on Friday morning, and let me tell you, it was huge!!! With 17 luxurious floors, the ship holds up to 3,500 guests. We visited the pool deck, the spa, the theatre, the gelato shop, the gym and of course we had to eat in the amazing Italian restaurant: Alfredo’s. My last blog post included some shots taken on the boat, you can also see the whole ship in my video, linked below.  Continue Reading…

Snap Happy in Toulon

May 28, 2017

Hey everyone,

If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I’m just back from two days in the South of France with Princess Cruises. It was such a fun few days exploring vineyards, tasting all things French and touring the amazing Royal Princess Cruise ship (where I took these photos) I vlogged the trip and can’t wait to show you every inch of this beautiful boat on my YouTube, hopefully I’ll have that video up tomorrow.

As usual when I go away, I got a million and one photos 🙂 One of the questions I get asked most often is what camera I use to take my photos, and what apps I use to edit them. For a long time I only used my Olympus Pen EPL-7 camera when taking photos (and I have used it on this post for some of the photos). But thankfully I have found a phone with a camera just as good as my actual camera, it’s small, easy to carry and has made my life so much easier – the Samsung S8. Continue Reading…

Shopping Post: Wedding Guest Dresses

May 22, 2017

Hi guys,

I hope you all had a great weekend. One question I am getting a LOT lately is have I seen any nice dresses for weddings and/or for brides for their hen parties. It must be that time of the year 🙂

I put together a post with some of my favourite dresses online at the moment. Lots of pastels, pleats and florals.

Hopefully this will help some of you, or give you some inspiration at the very least,

Catching up

May 18, 2017

Hey guys,

First of all let me start off by apologising for not posting in SO LONG! It’s been almost a month. I can’t even remember the last time I’ve left it so long. I’m gonna use Cooper, work and life in general as my excuse this time. But I promise I won’t leave it so long again. I did do two new YouTube videos in my absence here, have you seen them? (here and here)

Speaking of Cooper, since I wrote my last blog post I have gained a puppy with my housemate Chloe. We are now dog-moms 🙂 and loving every second (bar those sleepless nights where he barked all night long!). He’s slowly getting the hang of peeing outside, staying in the crate at night and is just the best company (he’s cuddled up on my lap as I write this!)

In other news, I had been very lax about making summer plans this year. Partly due to the fact that I just love summer in Ireland and also because my holiday days in work are running out very quickly, but I have made some plans this week, and it’s shaping up to be a very busy, exciting summer. I’m never usually one to keep anything secret, but until everything is confirmed I’m gonna keep this one to myself. I promise I will share everything on the blog in due course 🙂  Continue Reading…

Back on it!

April 24, 2017

Hi everyone,

After a very indulgent few weeks (between Dubai, Positano, and the Style Awards) it’s time to face the fact that summer is on the way (YAY!) and I need to get back on that healthy band wagon.

For me, I don’t like to call it a diet. I just try and cut out the crap from my diet. If I am really craving something like chocolate I will allow myself a healthier alternative, and the longer I keep up with eating healthy the easier it will get. I read a good saying the other day:

Motivation is what gets you started, habit is what keeps you going

My Favourite Time of Year

April 24, 2017

Hey guys,

I hope you’re all having a good week, and if you’re not, at least it’s a short 4 day week 🙂

I’m back from Italy and enjoying Springtime in Ireland. As you may have guessed from the title it really is my favourite time of year. The weather is getting warmer, the flowers are blooming and summer is on the horizon!

We always give Ireland a hard time for the weather – but hey it’s got lots more it can bring to the table, namely craic, cherry-blossoms and long, bright evenings. With the arrival of these cherished bright nights, I can’t help but look forward to the summer months ahead. I love summer in Ireland, and cannot wait for those random warm days we get when everyone runs out of work early to grab a glass of cider in the sun. There is no where in the world better than Ireland on days like those 🙂

I’m also excited that it is (almost) time to whip out the summer wardrobe again. I’ve started my summer shopping a little early this year, as you can see 😉 Here I’m wearing a white one shoulder blousegrey faux-suede skirt, a rose-gold chanel-style bag and black aviator sunglasses – all from PrettyLittleThing.

Have a great weekend guys,

Louise x
