So for those of you who are new to TSO, this is my chance every month to keep you updated on everything that I’m up to and what’s going on in the world of Aoibhe. Sorry it’s taken me so long to get this post finished but it’s quite long and as you can imagine I’ve been doing loads since I arrived.

So for those of you that don’t know, I moved to Australia on the 4th June and I flew with Emirates which I was very excited about. I had heard how great Emirates are to fly with and they were so right. I said my final goodbyes before I left and it was so hard. My fabulous hairdresser & her daughter Emily, my three favourite cousins Niamh, Cara & Aisling, my auntie Siobhan who I’m very close to, my best friend’s fiancée Derek and her two little princesses Tehya & Feenix, my amazing mum who went back to Spain the day I left, my Dad Hugh -the best dad ever, my ‘favourite brother’ Hugh I only have one 🙂 his girlfriend Tori and two of the absolute rocks in my life my best friend forever, Vanessa and my wonderful boyfriend Andrew.

I said goodbye to everyone in Kurt Geiger and they got me some beautiful gifts and flowers. They are a such a great wonderful bunch of people and I already miss them so much. They also got me these gorgeous pair of Kurt Geiger cut-out boots I wanted which are perfect for Summer.


Before my  website launch, I decided I need a cleanse. I done a delicious 3-day detox by Ju-Tox. It is very similar to the one I done before and The Ju-Tox team create the juices using fresh locally sourced fruit and vegetable juices.  I loved the juices and they really made me full. You feel really clean after doing the detox plus you get a really great night’s sleep during it also. They cold press the fruit/veg as opposed to using a traditional centrifugal juicer so as to retain the maximum amount of natural fruit sugars, vitamins, trace minerals, enzymes and other vital elements.

We FINALLY launched our new website a few days before I left Ireland and we are so happy with the feedback so far. A lot of you saying how easier it is to use, how pretty it is & how classy it looks too. That’s exactly what I wanted and so glad you all love it like we do here at TSO. Lastly, I want to say a massive thank you to every single one of you that came to the launch and all our sponsors on the night too.

Sugar & Spice Dublin for their stunning candy buffet
Custom Cakes Ireland for our fabulous cake + cupcakes

So I took a couple of weeks off since I got here because I had not seen one of my best friends Ally in a couple of years and wanted time to settle in. I’m living with Ally and 3 of her friends in this beautiful big house just 10mins from Perth city.

On my first day I pretty much chilled and tried to get over the jet lag. I went to see the film The Fault in our Stars when I arrived which was such a great film. If you haven’t went to see it, you definitely should. Very sad film but quite possibly one of my all time favourites now. It just really makes you appreciate a lot and how important it is to realise how lucky you are.

I’ve been to the BEAUTIFUL Hillarys Harbour in Perth and it was such a gorgeous day too. We met with Ally’s friend Hannah and went for lunch down by the harbour. After Ally took me to see some kangaroo’s too. They are so cute, look at the photo Ally took!

King’s Park – AMAZING view of the city/river


Hannah – Ally’s friend has a beautiful horse called Spring so we went out to visit him. Hannah is going to teach me how to horse ride so I’m very excited. He is just so beautiful. The day was so sunny we went to Swan Valley we decided to go into a winery called Oakover. Visiting a winery is the norm here. Australian’s LOVE their wine and why not too? It’s so good. The wine was delicious and we done a tasting too.

Their is a shop called Ally (below) and I was SHOCKED when I walked in because they sell so much clothes from website Hello Molly but at half the price. I’ll definitely be stocking up on a few bits soon. Ally wanted to show me their beautiful beaches one day so we took a walk all along the coast and WOW!! They were beautiful. You just need to look at my photos. I was taken away by how gorgeous the sea was. They do have sharks though eeeeeek!!!

Visiting Bells Rapid with Hannah. The sun was setting and it was just so gorgeous. We went on a really long walk through the hills and it was just so beautiful.

Then last weekend 7 of us headed down to Margaret River to go on a wine tour. It was so much fun. It’s their version of Galway to us in Ireland. It takes 3 hours to get there and it’s a buzzing little town. Their wine is to die for. Please can I say I was not a massive wine drinker before I left and now I am in love. It’s so good here and also their champagne, no words. Hannah has another horse down south so on our way down we popped in to visit. We went for a really nice meal in the Margaret River hotel that night too. The wine tour was lots of fun and we met some really cool people on it. Not only did we visit 3 winery’s, we went to the Margaret River Chocolate Factory, a distillery and a brewery so we were slightly intoxicated by the end to say the least. We went to visit caves too which was pretty interesting and finished off our great weekend with a random helicopter ride around Yallingup. What an experience!

Thank you Doug for organising the trip and to Ally, Leo, Hannah, Steve and Shae for making it a fab weekend.

Here are some photos from our little trip Down South.




We ate crocodile on the wine tour too. It tasted like smoked ham 🙂

Our view from the helicopter was incredible. Thanks so much to Steve for organising it.

So what’s next…..

I decided to put off my trip to Thailand for the moment, a few complications that led to me not being able to go as soon as I would have liked but I will get there. I now start work on Thursday and I have started to look at moving into my own house which is exciting. We are all going out this Saturday for Shae’s birthday (Ally’s housemate) so that will be a great night, going to Aussie rules match soon, visit to Fremantle prison/Perth zoo and apparently the nicest bakery in Perth on Friday. You know me 😉 LOVE a good cupcake. We are also looking at going to up north to Broome in August for the races too.

I will keep you all up to date in my next post. And any of you thinking of moving here… DO IT! I will never look back. It’s an amazing country and already I’ve done so much.
