Hey guys,

So here it is – the last post of 2015. I’ve had such a great year I’m sad to see it come to an end but I’m also happy to be starting 2016 on such a good note. Christmas was so nice this year – I mean, it’s nice every year but I feel like I definitely appreciate it more as I get older. The break from work, being reunited with friends and family, the amazing home-cooked food, it’s just so good.

I’ve so many great memories to look back on from 2015. I visited some really cool places, made some friends I know I’ll have forever and honestly I feel like I’ve just gotten to know myself a lot better. Continue Reading…

Hey guys,

Happy Christmas Eve! I can’t believe how fast it came around this year. This time last year feels like yesterday – but I have to say things have definitely changed a lot in a year. Between moving countries, jobs, finishing college courses, meeting new people, I think things at the moment are slowly changing all the time but it’s not until you take the time to look back you actually realise and can make sense of it.

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down and it has made all the difference in my life

Christmas and New Years is a great time to look back, appreciate and celebrate the year – the celebrating part I have definitely been doing a lot/ too much of. It is silly season after all 🙂

Hey guys,

I hope you’re all enjoying the run up to Christmas. I can’t believe how fast it has sprung up on me this year. I had no presents even sorted until this week, and I’m still not done which is very unlike me, but honestly can you blame me for not wanting to go out shopping in this weather? It actually makes me laugh how bad it is. I feel Teresa Mannion‘s pain on a daily basis haha.

I can’t wait to finish up work next week and to head home to Limerick for a week of just eating, chilling and catching up with friends. I’m going to be visiting friends in Kerry and Galway too before returning to Dublin for New Years so I’m excited to do a bit of travelling too – I tend to get cabin fever fairly quickly haha!

Hey guys,

Happy Monday! Is it just me or is the start of a week not as scary as we move into Christmas? Everyone is much happier and the week doesn’t seem as long. I spent the weekend at home in Limerick where our Christmas decorations were going up so I am officially now in Christmas mode 🙂

This week is full of lovely Christmas activities. I have an Alex and Ani Christmas lunch, my work Christmas party and my sister Nicole’s Christmas concert. Speaking of sisters, to celebrate the launch of the new comedy SISTERS with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, myself and my older sister Grace answered questions for Frockadvisor about what we liked and disliked about being sisters. LOL. You can see the videos here and here. Continue Reading…

Hey guys,

Happy December! I can’t believe how close Christmas is getting, it’s officially time to start thinking about Christmas presents and Christmas outfits and all that fun stuff. Besides the hurricane weather every day, I’m really enjoying Dublin at the moment. All the Christmas lights are up and there’s lots of fun Christmassy events on. If you follow me on Snapchat (lou1409) you’ve probably seen some of this already.

As of Monday I’ve finished both the Teen Vogue x Parsons course and my Post Grad in International Business. I was so happy to see my fifth article featured on the homepage of Teen Vogue.com yesterday and I found out they have featured me in their Dec/ Jan print issue – which is just crazy. My amazing friend Phil sent me a pic but I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy! Head over to my Facebook or Instagram to see the pic.  Continue Reading…
