“Get your shit together” is today’s mantra. I would love to have a lazy day of binge watching Netflix but my to do list is overflowing. The important stuff is always the stuff I put off but today I’m pouring myself a stronger coffee than usual and powering through.
Hangovers are cured by Netflix and chocolate. I’m currently watching Arrested Development and The Good Girls and I’m needing something new. what’s on your to watch list?
The hot weather made realise that I have no appropriate clothing and must get rid of everything and replace them with summer dresses.
It’s the last day! The Future News Worldwide conference has been absolutely defiant. Not only for my education of journalism but for my knowledge of the world beyond the UK. Meeting people from so many different cultural backgrounds from all walks of life, has completely opened my eyes and only encourages me to travel and pursue my career worldwide. To hear more stories and tell more stories. Thank you to the @britishcouncil for giving me this opportunity. We were the chosen lot out of 2500 and this experience will stay with me forever.
Last night the Future News Worldwide conference began and along with a room full of fantastic people, there was wine. Endless wine. It is so wonderful and refreshing to be in a room full of people from so many different countries and cultures- all here for the same reason. It’s a jam packed day and despite only a few hours sleep... I’m ready.
Throwback to when I didn’t have to work on a sunny Friday in a roasting restaurant. #beachbodyreadysince1994
Hello heatwave🌞🌞 This is actually a playsuit I bought last year and it’s the most comfy, airy thing. Easy to chuck on with a belt and converse and good to go. Now I just need to find somewhere v hot to visit so I can wear this all the time...
They call it “princess potion”. And to my surprise, it’s bloody a perfect primer. A couple of drops on the face and my scale like skin looks like silk and stops my foundation from cracking like a hyper stressed student in exam season. @w7makeupuk
And just like that I’m back on home soil. A week away in the retreat that is my grandparents’ home is just what was needed. After uni, moving flat and work, a break with my much loved family from a busy life didn’t go unappreciated. I left with teary eyes but ready for summer and a new chapter. First stop, a catch up in Edinburgh.
Hygee really means coffee and biscuits 🍪 After stressful uni, stressful flat move and working away, I’m finally completely relaxed and content. My grandparents have a wonderful way of doing that for me. It must have something to do with the unlimited amount of biscuits they supply. 🍪🍪🍪
I’m back in Ireland visiting my grandparents. Which roughly translates to “playing with the dogs.” Out of the 5 chihuahuas, Alex is my favourite and always has been. He’s a fine little pup.
Summer nights are best spent in beer gardens. Last night me and Martin went to a steakhouse and enjoyed a proper melt in the mouth steak. Good food and good company. This is what summer’s all about. What more can I ask for? #theuncoolclub
anyone else have no idea what to do with their limbs?
#throwbackthursday takes me back to Amsterdam. You surprised me and left me wanting more.
And finally the dust settled. Moving flat is stressful but I can feel my mental health becoming steady again. It meant I had to cancel plans and take some time out but it was worth it. I’ve rambled about it and given some tips on how to keep sane on the blog.😌
Only one eye had good eyeliner
Had the absolute best day celebrating the wedding of my managers. The happiness and love radiated throughout the whole day. Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Fox
After an afternoon wondering round the shops unsuccessfully, I took a break to rest my feet with some good coffee and tasty food. And as I pulled out my laptop to write a blog post, I realised I’m a walking cliche. But I’m very happy with a latte next to me. Cliche or no cliche. #sorrynotsorry
My friend has a theory that the queen controls the weather. It appeared to be sunny everywhere today and complete TAPS AFF weather. I’m no scientist but just saying... coincidence? #royalwedding #congratulationsharryandmeghan
