New Year, not so new resolutions


Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a great Christmas break with family and friends. I had such a nice and relaxing break, topped off with a few days in Wexford for New Year’s taking in some fab sea views.

Now that we’re at the start of 2017, I know a lot of people are into making new year resolutions. To be honest none of these have ever really stuck for me. Continue reading “New Year, not so new resolutions”

Touchdown in London Town


Last weekend I paid a flying visit to London to visit one of my friends. I always love a trip to London and having one of my besties over there gives me a great excuse for a visit! Continue reading “Touchdown in London Town”

I took a quick photo as I was flying back to Dublin last night after a great weekend break in London. I was visiting one of my friends who lives over there and I always have such a great time when I go over! Looking forward to the next trip already. The clouds looked pretty amazing on my way home after a really nice weekend, so I thought I would share this photo. I’ll be doing a bigger post on what I got up to in London this week, so keep an eye out for that! Happy Monday all 😊

The Monday blues are kicking in, but after spending a lovely time in Wexford this weekend I don’t think I can complain too much! Here’s a quick snap as we headed for a walk on the beach yesterday afternoon 😊

Things to do in Dubrovnik

Should you go on holiday to Dubrovnik? My answer is a resounding yes! I recently went on holidays to Dubrovnik and I absolutely loved it.

My trip was for 10 days and some of my friends were surprised I wasn’t moving around Croatia more – my boyfriend and I opted to stay in Dubrovnik for our entire holiday rather than go to other places like Split, Hvar or Zagreb. While I plan on visiting these parts of Croatia on my next visit, I’m really glad we spent our whole trip in Dubrovnik as it was a great base for both exploring and relaxing. There’s lots of great things to do in Dubrovnik and I thought I would share some tips from my own holiday, which will hopefully be useful for anyone planning a short break or longer stay.
