Pretty Pastels

March 17, 2019

Hi guys,

Welcome back to the blog! Today I am discussing one of my favourite trends for Spring-pastels! I know pastels are predictable for Spring but there are so many nice colours in the shops at the moment. I love wearing pastels as you can see from my instagram and its fab to be able to inject some colours into our wardrobes again.

There are some gorgeous dresses included in my top picks which would be fab for a Spring/Summer occasion. I adore this lilac colour! Pastel colour blouses are also a great way to inject some colour into your work wardrobe. I love this mint blouse and this yellow would put a smile on your face!

I hope you find something you like and that you have a great bank holiday weekend!

Here are some of my favourite ways I have styled blazers:

A Weekend in Mallorca with Toyota

February 25, 2019

Hi guys

I’m just back from a great weekend in Mallorca with my best friend Dearbhla and Toyota. They invited us over to test drive the new Corolla Hatchback Hybrid car and to explore the island in it! 

I have to say, before the trip I would have thought a Corolla was an older persons car and not the most stylish/ sleek car out there – but I have to hold my hands up and say with the new design, Toyota have definitely proved me wrong. 

We arrived on Friday and picked up our car from the airport – I was instantly impressed by the gorgeous style, shape and colour of the car. This for me would be a huge factor in choosing a car. I also love a car that is a good size for getting around a city. I’m in and out of Dublin City Centre nearly every day for different meetings and events, so I need a car that’s an appropriate size & is easy to park (but I also look for a car with 5 doors, as 3 doors can just be a pain!) and I have to say the Corolla Hatchback really did tick all of these boxes.

I was the designated driver for the weekend which I was very excited about as it was my first time driving a hybrid car and my first time driving on the right hand side of the road. 

From Palma airport, we took the scenic route to our hotel – the Park Hyatt Mallorca which was located on the other side of the island. It gave me a chance to get familiar with the car and how it felt to drive. It also gave me a chance to get used to driving on the right hand side of the road and to get used to all of the roundabouts haha (there was a lot of them!) The Corolla Hybrid Hatchback is automatic so very easy to drive (I definitely would have conked a few times if it wasn’t) – it has a heads up display with a great GPS system. This was my lifeline for the weekend. 

On Saturday we head for some paddle boarding lessons in Port de Pollenca – I had been here once before 15 years ago on my first ever family holiday to Spain! It was so cool to be back. We got a gorgeous tapas style lunch in Tolo’s and then visited the old castle town of Bellver a successful day of exploring and a lot of time spent in the car. 

I learnt it has lots of amazing features, some of my personal favourites are:

  • the rear view reserving camera 
  • The USB for Charging your phone 
  • Bluetooth

One other important thing to mention is as it’s a hybrid car it’s very quiet and smooth to drive – it has a petrol engine but an electric motor that self charges each time you slow down / stop the car which means you never have to plug it in – so handy! As it’s half electric it also means you’re not always burning petrol, like you are in regular cars, so it’s much more fuel Effecient (aka you don’t have to fill up your tank as often… aka you save money!)

Sunday we just hung out at our hotel, which I have to say was probably the nicest hotel I’ve ever stayed at, before heading back for the airport for our flight home.

I can’t thank Toyota enough for having me on this trip, it was amazing to get some winter sun with my best friend and also to get the opportunity to test drive the Corolla in Mallorca (at a quiet time of year, which made for a v relaxing driving experience. The roads are actually surprisingly good in Mallorca too for such a small island!)

I’m excited to see more of the Toyota hybrids on Irish roads over the coming months, they are very reasonably priced starting at €207 a month & you can learn more about ordering one here.

Hope you enjoyed this blog post & that you found it helpful if you are on the look out for a new car,

Lou xx

A big thank you to Toyota for inviting me on this trip & for partnering with me on this post 🙂

Classic Camel

February 25, 2019

Hi guys,

I am back today with a blog post on one of my most worn pieces in my wardrobe: the camel coat. Last year, I invested in a Stella McCartney coat and it was one of the best investment pieces I have ever bought! I get so much wear out of it! You don’t have to look far on my instagram to see it! It goes with almost everything, can be worn day-to-night and is a great transitional piece to have in your wardrobe.

Here are some of my favourite ways that I have worn my coat.

Below are my favourite camel coats online at the moment. I hope you get as much wear out of yours as I do out of mine!
