Picture the scene: It’s a stunningly beautiful sunny day in the paradise that is the Dominican Republic. The turquoise waves are lapping off the white powdery sand. Palm trees stand tall along the beach as if a defence for the resort. There is a yogilates class just starting on the beach and I decide to give it a go. Now I am really not one for just ‘joining in’ on holidays. I like to sit by the pool or the beach sipping a coctail, reading my book or online shopping(as long as the wifi is good 😂) but this just looked like a bit of fun and something different.
The yoga instructor and all the other students were 50+…so I thought to myself ‘I’ll be brilliant at this’ #FamousLastWords …now I wasn’t terrible, I just wasn’t great, and it turns out that I’m not in as good shape as I thought I was. That’s ok though – it’s January, most of the country are in the same boat. Long story short, even though I was all arms and legs all over the place, I actually really enjoyed it. So that was day one on my yoga journey. I attended the class most days for the rest of my holiday, and who knows what will happen now I’m home!
#yogilates might just start trending!
Have you ever heard the term ‘God Bless ASOS’?
Now it could be just that we Irish are forever blessing everything (or at least it seems that way!), or it could be the fact that no matter what outfit you need, ASOS will have it. Whether it’s a swanky new dress for the races, a new work wardrobe or even just casual wear, ASOS has it, and lots of it. There are no restrictions on choice whatsoever, and I love it. It’s also a great place to get shoes, bags and accessories, you name it, they have it.
I particularly like their workwear, and the fact that you can filter by workwear (nobody has time to trawl through 20 pages for the perfect work blazer).
So, have you said God Bless ASOS recently?
You can shop ’til you drop at ASOS.com
As the song says.. These are a few of my favourite things..
Happy Thursday everyone.
I hope your week is going well!
I spotted some gorgeous bags in Zara, they are elegant, simple, functional and they won’t break the bank!
These are some of my favourite.
To me, Top Shop is always fab and on point. This season is no different, and they have some really lovely pieces in. From denim and accessories to khaki, they have casual style down to a ‘T’✌️
These are some of my favourite, but you can see more here.
I hope you are all having a good week!
Slogan tops are really popular at the moment, and I have to say I am a big fan. They are fun, and a really cool way to express yourself! Whenever I see a one that I love, I’m immediately on the hunt to put an outfit together for it.
They can be worn in lots of ways, from over skinny jeans and converse, to a skirt with ankle boots. I love to add a statement necklace over a slogan sweatshirt, then it’s instantly dressy.
Top Tip: I find the boyfriend styles aren’t a great style on me, I prefer a more fitted shape, so I would always get these in at least one size smaller than usual.
Check out these trendy pieces from River Island
So how did your week go? Mine was busy busy but good all the same😊
I’m really longing for Spring now, I want the evenings to get longer and the bad weather to just go away!
With that in mind, I spotted these lovelies in River Island this week.
Aren’t they fab?
Happy Monday everyone!
So hopefully everyone else’s Monday went smoothly too, I for one was absolutely dreading the first day back after Christmas! It’s actually great to get back in a routine again, and of course meet up with all the work gang and get all the Christmas news!
For anyone that still needs some cheering up, have a look at these beauties from Oasis.
I love them both. I just can’t choose!!
Help blue or pink?!
Happy New Year everyone!
I rang in 2015 in Dingle with my lovely husband and lots of our friends. It really seemed like the whole world was there, and a few famous faces too (I swear we weren’t stalking them!!). Dingle never disappoints, from the food, to the pubs, to the crowd, it’s always a great spot.
As for my resolutions… Well this year I am going to be 30, so I really want to just enjoy the last year of my 20s and have loads of laughs (they assure me that life doesn’t stop once you turn the big 3-0!!).
Last year we got married, so it was pretty hectic, so I am looking forward to this year being a little calmer…!
I also started blogging last year, it’s been a little nerve wracking as I really feel like I’ve got my heart on my sleeve, but I am really enjoying it, so I’m going to do lots more blogging too!
Finally, I’m going to lower my cholesterol….sad but true! 😂😂
I hope you had a great New Years, wherever you were.
Happy 2015 guys!!
