Market Bar- Mood Elevator



It was dark and rain was relentlessly attacking from all angles. The streets were packed with what seemed like every commuter and tourist in Dublin. Umbrellas loomed out of nowhere and narrowly missed eyes and heads.

A Day in the Country

Getting out of the city can be great. There's nothing like a trip to Wexford to make a weekend. Although this time it took us hours to actually navigate the traffic in the city centre, once we were looking at a long stretch of road we were able to relax.

Dublin is a foodie heaven. After my long absence, I'm constantly amazed by the quality of the food on offer all around Dublin.

Samhain Festival


So, how was your Halloween? I know I'm a little late, but I haven't been able to post until now. Mine was very low-key. It did involve an entire tub of Hagan Daaz Praline and microwave popcorn, and Pretty Little Liars. The Halloween episode freakishly came on during my binge, which I thought was very cool, and a little spooky, maybe? 

My Halloween was so quiet because I celebrated a week early, at Samhain. A festival on in Co. Meath, When we heard about it, we were sold.

Birthday Pig-Out at Elephant & Castle, Dublin


Elephant & Castle in Dublin's Temple is one of my favourite restaurants. And so, when my little brother chose it as the place he wanted to celebrate his birthday with with family, I was kinda feeling like it was my birthday too!

Girl's World Roundup


Welcome to Girl's World Roundup. As you know, I am a feminist. I don't like to mention it too much, because I know the F word freaks people out. But it seems like feminism is close to becoming trendy, thanks to Emma Watson's fabulous speech, Beyonce's better-late-than never acknowledgement of the word, and even Taylor Swift backing up on her previous denial of being a feminist.

Last of the Summer in Howth


Howth is pretty great. A drive along the coast of Dublin will bring you to a harbour town that is as pretty as it is enjoyable.

As a child, many a Sunday was spent traipsing up and down the walk along the pier. The best part of all was getting to run up and down the bumpy roof. It was brilliant.  

We recently headed off to Howth for a stroll and fish and chips, of course!

Insomnia- I Can't Get No Sleep!


Hi everyone, I hope you all had a good weekend. 

My week wasn't as insane as last week, but I had a tiredness hangover that lasted all week. To make matters even worse, my idiotic mind kept me up long after I went to bed, despite the fact that I was exhausted. I just can't seem to stop worrying and over-thinking when it comes to lights out. Does this happen to any of you? It's like I'm my own worst enemy. I feel like a zombie all day, and am dying to sleep, but when it comes to it, it's like I'm doing my best not to sleep, even though I am in desperate need of some beauty rest!
