    Thailand-2

     

    It feels strange booking a holiday that defines you as a couple! It sets out the stall. You’re hitched and going on your first jaunt so somehow it is scrutinised more. At the moment I’m trying to figure out somewhere to go for ONE week of scheduled relaxation. Hardcore relaxation. The kind of place where you’re waited on hand and foot. Where you don’t feel guilty for sleeping ’til noon and napping at four. Somewhere with good food and decent weather (obvs), an unpretentious, delicious, love-bubble-inducing spot that is just  one flight away from Dublin or London. PLEASE HELP!!

    Some guys are bum guys, some girls are ring girls. I’m a ring girl. I feel ridiculously and hopelessly naked without stacks of them sitting defiantly on my fingers. I feel vulnerable and “off”, not myself. I’m aware that sounds a tad over dramatic but they’re a source of comfort to me, the way a child night have a blankie! I twiddle them when I’m anxious, I take them on and off when I’m bored, I look at them when I’m lovely, they make me feel at ease! They’re my thing and they’re more than adornment for the sake of it. They’re an extension of me, a part of my style.

    As such you can imaging my thrilled expression when PANDORA asked me to design a stack (below) for #myringsmystyle project. I’ve gone a little off piste and moved away from my usual fistful of gold to experiment with some silver, and the rest. I hope you like it!!

    I cannot effectively express my love for espadrilles. They are the shoe that encapsulates Summer like no other. I do love it when clothes feel so closely linked to a season or a time that they make you happy just looking at them. I’m currently planning my honeymoon, YES! I’m getting hitched and feeling excited at the thought of wearing these on a hot Mexican dirt road.

  4. Brunch like a king

    Brunch is a sacred social ritual for me these days and one I’d much rather indulge in than dinner or cocktails or, gasp, even a night on the tiles. It’s true I may need to get a life but the habit of dishing up a salty bacon and smocked salmon balanced with green, life-giving goodies and sweet potatoes, home-made guacamole, corn fritters or whatever the hell you’re into, makes me happy. It feels like a meal where bonding is done, it’s more intimate and personal and usually ends up with Sunday drifting along in a blur of laughter and endless chatter. Bloody Mary’s are optional but recommended… Try a DIY station where your crew can add booze, tomatoes and all the spicy dreams to suit their tastes! Follow my Instagram account for more foodie stuff, I’m attempting to fashion myself as a ginger Martha Stewart.

    LOVE Interiors

     

    There is nothing better then folding yourself into freshly washed sheets, sinking pillows that smell of fresh air and a fluffy duvet that makes dreams come quickly. Dreams of exotic places and limitless opportunities, where there is no doubt or doubters, no glass ceiling or red tape, where you never question yourself , where ideas are nurtured and ambitions are realised, where only possibility exists…
