My First New York Fashion Week

September 13, 2017

Hi guys,

I’m just back from the BEST 5 days in New York at my first every New York Fashion Week. It was a dream come true for me: attending fashion shows, experiencing the backstage chaos and getting dressed up in whatever I wanted. I have attended other Fashion Weeks (London and Milan) but nothing will quite compare to New York for me – my favourite city! The street style, the atmosphere, the weather – everything was just out of this world.

My favourite shows of the week were: the Project Runway Finale with Jessica Alba, Heidi Klum and Zac Posen (how cool), Taoray Wang, Francesca Liberatone, TOME and John Paul Ataker (where I saw Taylor Hill and Karlie Kloss walk). Being backstage at TIBI was amazing as well, that show looked unreal!

It was a crazy busy few days, which I am recovering from now but I absolutely cannot wait to go back to NYFW and do it all over again another season. Being able to attend this time was a big milestone moment for me in my new career. It has made me so motivated and excited for what lies ahead.  Continue Reading…


Seychelles Travel Diary

August 9, 2017

Hey guys,

Last week I got back from the most amazing trip to the Seychelles. If you are reading this there is a good chance you saw some of my pics and blog posts – there was quite a few 😉

I wanted to put together a Seychelles travel diary for anyone thinking about visiting – so I can share all the information I have in one place.

How did we get there from Ireland?

We flew with Emirates from Dublin to Dubai (8 hours) and then from Dubai to Seychelles (4 hours). So it was a long journey – but it flew (excuse the pun). I was happy out on the flights watching lots of good movies, enjoying good food and drinks and I even managed to get a few hours sleep (the starlit ceilings helped with that!) Continue Reading…

Sun-kissed in the Seychelles

August 2, 2017

Hey there,

I hope you’re all having a good week. It’s been a pretty amazing week here in the Seychelles, I’ve had to stop and just take it in at times. It’s definitely the most beautiful place I’ve ever been. I’m going to try and bottle up some of the sunshine to take home with me tomorrow night.

We’ve had such a nice time exploring the islands, meeting the locals and of course catching some sun. The wifi isn’t the best in the world over here, so I haven’t been able to Snapchat too much, but I have a vlog on the way with lots of great footage from our trip. Subscribe to my YouTube here so you know when it’s live 🙂 Continue Reading…

Beach Basics

July 31, 2017

Hi guys,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. It’s been a PRETTY good one here in the Seychelles. It’s one of those places where you have to continuously pinch yourself to remind yourself where you are.

We checked out of our first hotel, the stunning Le Meridien Fisherman’s Cove hotel today, and we have checked into our new hotel which we booked so last minute on (as usual) – the Savoy Spa Hotel and Resort. We got such a good deal on this hotel at €165 a night – I swear by!  Continue Reading…

Day 1 in the Seychelles

July 28, 2017

Hello from the Seychelles,

I can safely say after Day 1 that this trip is one I’ll remember forever! I was so busy in the run up to it, that I didn’t have much time to over think it and to get really excited – but oh my god. I have just been blown away in every sense of the word since we arrived.

The hotel, the beauty, the weather, the people… it just makes total sense why everyone calls islands like these paradise.

We’re staying in the beautiful Le Meridien Fishermans Cove on Mahe Island and it’s stunning. Check out my social media to see more. More than the stunning surroundings, I’ve loved the relaxed vibe of the Seychelles more than anything. I would love to live here for a little while to experience their lifestyle. You may have seen from my snapchat (username: lou1409) that I’m here with my best friend and fellow blogger Lauren for the week. We are off to explore the main island of Mahe tomorrow and can’t wait to learn more about the history and culture of the stunning island.

We were lucky enough to have a pool/beach day today to top up our tans, and I was SO HAPPY to launch my competition with Emirates that gives one of you the chance to win a trip just like this for you and a guest (to anywhere Emirates fly)! There is more info on my Instagram if you’re interested. It’s absolutely the BEST prize I’ve ever given away (secretly wishing I could throw my name into the hat a few times haha)

After day 1 of this trip, I can honestly say I haven’t felt so lucky, happy and grateful on a trip. I’m so excited for what the next 6 days of adventure will bring,

Stay tuned on social media for more – and don’t forget to enter the competition 🙂

P.S. I’m wearing all PrettyLittleThing in these photos. They have such fab summer bits – shop their swimwear here or else check out the shop section on my website to see what else I picked up from PLT.

My Top 5 Tips for Packing

July 24, 2017

Hi there,

The sunny weather today was a nice treat to kickstart the week, hopefully some of you got out to enjoy a little of it. I was busy getting myself organised for the Seychelles on Thursday, and thought, with all the travelling I’m doing lately, a blog post with some tips on packing wouldn’t go astray.

It’s something I’m asked about a lot and I suppose the more I travel, the more I learn how to make the dreaded ‘packing’ a little easier for myself.

I have narrowed it down to my top 5 tips for packing and hopefully some of you will find these useful for upcoming holidays 🙂

  1. Make a List

Sometimes I hate the idea of lists, for fear of knowing all the stuff I have left to do, but it really is the best way to get organised for a trip. Between clothes, toiletries, adaptors, chargers, cameras, medicine… and whatever else you may need to get, do or organise before you leave – there is a LOT to remember.

I jot down what I need as I remember in a note on my phone or else in my diary. It’s all worth it when the list is all ticked off and the suitcases are packed and ready to go! Continue Reading…
