Spring Knitwear you NEED

March 13, 2017

Hi guys,

Despite the weather we have been experiencing the last few weeks, today is a testament to the fact that summer is on the way. But first – SPRING. I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly not ready to leave my knit jumpers behind just yet, so I’ve found myself investing in some lighter, brighter springtime knits that will carry me through to the (hopefully) warmer seasons.

Here are 21 of my favourites from a selection of online shops. The great thing about the jumpers I’ve chosen is you really could wear them in any season: over a summer dress in July, with a layer underneath in December, and just how it is in March.

I hope you like my choice, happy shopping 🙂

How to Grow Your Following

March 9, 2017

Hi guys,

Following on from my little story on Human’s of Dublin earlier this week about the struggles of starting a blog (or anything really), I’ve had quite a few people get in touch with me looking for advice on building a following online.

This is a new kind of blog post for me but it’s actually something I get asked all the time in interviews, by friends, by followers: How did I grow my following? 

Whether for a blog or a new business, there’s no doubt that social media plays a very important role in letting people know about it and getting them interested in what you have to offer. Having spent the last 2 years doing just that, I thought I would share some of my top tips that you may find useful: Continue Reading…

My Go-To Accessory

March 6, 2017

Hey guys,

I hope your week is off to a good start. This week is off to a pretty mental start for me – I posted my first YouTube video, was featured on Humans of Dublin and have been absolutely up the walls in work in the meantime. Working in Tourism Ireland, March is a very busy time. The lead up to Ireland’s National Holiday in our office is like the lead up to Christmas in Santa’s workshop. Well maybe not quite the same but you get the jist 😉

On these busy days, I still try to feel and look my best. That’s when I am my most productive. This means finding fast easy ways to do this, whether its finding quick, healthy meals to eat, a handy hair trick or something fab that I can wear to make any look stylish. For me, you’ve probably noticed, these necklaces have been featuring on almost every outfit I wear lately, and that’s exactly why. They are so simple but gorgeous and can be worn so many different ways. See two previous outfit posts I did wearing them here and here. Continue Reading…

Milan Fashion Week 2017

March 2, 2017

Hey everyone,

I’m just back from what was the coolest weekend at Milan Fashion Week with my friend Dearbhla. We conquered London Fashion Week last year together and thought it was time to take on a new city. I’ve been laying low since coming back, and this blog post was a little slower to come than usual. After the month of travelling I’ve just had so much to catch up on in work, and in life. But I can’t wait to share more with you about this amazing weekend getaway.

The first thing we noticed was how expensive hotels were for this weekend. Luckily we found the gorgeous Aparthotel Meneghino – which I’d highly recommend for anyone visiting Milan. It’s central, very clean and the staff were so helpful. Also, look at the view we had from our balcony. Continue Reading…

The Importance of Downtime

February 24, 2017

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! I’m so excited it’s the weekend, and as you know from my last post I am off to Milan in the morning. This month has been amazing for travelling and I’ve loved every second but it has been absolutely manic busy as well. I’ve barely had a second to think between trips haha. Travelling, working full time, managing my blog, trying to be healthy, seeing friends and family – there’s a lot to fit in, and it definitely can get overwhelming sometimes.

This week in particular I’ve gotten quite a few snaps from my followers asking how I find time for everything so I thought it would be useful to write a post about this just to explain that despite my best efforts I don’t always find time for everything, and the thing that probably suffers most is my downtime. And it shouldn’t.  Continue Reading…

Summer Dreaming in February

February 21, 2017

Hey everyone,

This week is a little less crazy than last week, no private jets this week 😉 Although I am off to Milan at the weekend for Milan Fashion Week, so it’s a busy one getting prepared for that. Outfit planning is in full swing – I have an order coming in from Revolve which I have my fingers crossed arrives on time. You can see some of the bits I picked up on the shop section on my site.

Milan is somewhere I can’t believe I’ve never been before and I’m so excited to visit. My new years resolution of visiting 8 new places this year is off to a good start: Amsterdam, Lisbon and Monte Carlo so far, I’m about to add my fourth city to the list. Travelling is my absolute favourite thing to do, it’s my favourite thing to spend money on and I love having somewhere to document and share it with you all. I had forgotten the excitement of going somewhere you’ve never been, exploring different architecture, learning different cultures and meeting new people.

I’m in love with cities I’ve never been to and people I’ve never met

After the past few weeks I’m more determined than ever to make this year about travelling, and I’m already counting down the days to summer 🙂

Anyway I’m off to do some shopping for MFW, stay tuned for lots of updates over the weekend,

Lou x
