Clicking on…..

Public Desire. I just love their shoes. I’m a shoe addict as it is but lately I’ve found loads I like. Here are two pairs I’ve just ordered for a wedding and my holidays. I just love them 🙂




Gimme Brow by Benefit. I just bought another one today which I cannot live without. I need to actually get more but it’s AMAZING! Holds my brows in place perfectly and they don’t budge. The colour is perfect for my hair and matches it doesn’t darken it. It’s the only thing I use on my brows every single day. 


Thinking about…..

Look I know it’s a total first world problem but I paid €95 the other day in Sugardolls to get my nails and toes done. The result was gorgeous but after ONE DAY three of my nails had chipped on me. When I get them done in other places that never happens. I won’t lie a week later I’m still angry about it not because of the money but because I have to have my nails done properly for work. My pedicure is fine but my hands are just disgraceful. Less than a week later and 4 of them are ruined. So annoyed thinking about it. 



My next few months off and what I’m going to do. There’s a few places on my list I want to go to just for a night or two. We won’t be doing anymore big trips this year just LA at the end of the month. We are planning on going to visit friends in Edinburgh, another trip to Belfast as I want to see the Giant’s Causeway, a night in Paris before Christmas, maybe a trip to the Christmas markets somewhere too and then Iceland in January so we’ve a few exciting things planned. We’ll see what happens 🙂 


Looking forward to…..

Moving out 🙂 Eeeeeekkkkk!!!! Finally! I’m moving out next February and it will be so amazing to have my own place again. I’m looking forward to doing all the decor and making it my own. I’m so impatient though and will want everything yesterday so I’ll just have to learn to be a lot more patient really when I am decorating. I’m really looking forward to it all. 



The new iPhone. I’ve got the iPhone 6 at the moment and it just doesn’t cut it anymore at all. The camera quality is so bad now so I’m looking forward to getting it. I was going to get the iPhone 7 but just said I’d wait until the new one came out. It looks amazing. I’m actually on my 13th iPhone at the moment. I’m a disaster with my phone, constantly dropping it. My phone screen is actually currently smashed as I’m writing this. Typical!!! 


Excited for…..

Two friends of ours are getting married next month and I can’t wait for their big day. It’s in the gorgeous Virginia Park Lodge in Co. Cavan. I’ve never been before but the photos look to die for. We are staying the night there too so can’t wait. I’m wearing a stunning lace pink Alex Perry dress which I can’t wait to wear. 



Ossiano at Atlantis The Palm, Dubai. Genuinely cannot recommend this place enough if you are ever in Dubai. It’s an award winning restaurant and I can see why. It is hands down the most romantic restaurant I’ve ever been in. It’s an underwater restaurant were you sit in front of the aquarium for your meal watching the sharks, fish and stingrays in the aquarium. It’s expensive but worth it. The food, the service, the atmosphere just everything about it was absolutely magical. A dinner I’ll most definitely never forget 🙂  



Designated Survivor on Netflix. I actually can’t get enough of it. I adored 24 back in the day and it’s something kind of similar to that, plus it’s got Kiefer Sutherland in it too. 


Addicted to…..

SKINICIAN, a high-end Irish skincare brand. I got sent some of their products a few months back and I have been using them on my trips with work over the summer. Obviously I need to have good skincare with flying so much. I tried their Pro-Radiance Enzyme Cleanser which I adore. It smells divine, leaves my face feeling SO FRESH and also exfoliates my skin at the same time. The product also helps with anti-ageing which is something I have started to think about now that I am turning 29 next year. I have also been using their Advanced Time Delay Cream which has an SPF 15 in it too. The one thing I loved about this day cream was it’s left me glowing. My skin feels a lot brighter from using this and as it contains hyaluronic acid it gives intense moisture to the skin too. I want to try out their Hydrating Repair Mask and Facial Exfoliator next. I’ll keep you posted 😉



Obsessed with…..

My new Louis Vuitton bag. I’m so sad I know but I’m obsessed. I got it in Dubai. It’s soooo much easier to get bags over there than it is in Dublin. They have them way more readily available and no waiting there at all. I think there is much more of a demand for them over there so they are easier to get. I was so lucky to get mine and I couldn’t actually be happier. I was like a kid at Christmas. It’s something I’ll have for ages and I just love it.  


Dreaming about….

Going to the Philippines. Sean is half Filipino so he’s said we will definitely go next year. I’ve so many places I want to see there, El Nido, Boracay Island, Cebu to name a few. It actually looks magical.



Iconic Bronze fake tan. Remember I said last month that I was trying it? Well I’ve used it on a few of my trips and have to say I’ve been very happy with the results. I used only one coat as I’m quite pale and it was a nice light golden colour. It washes off great and doesn’t streak really bad like other tans. I’m going to try the darker one just to see what it’s like so I’ll let you know next time how that goes 😉 Buy it HERE.


Shocked by…..

I saw this on Facebook and couldn’t actually believe it. I’m obviously born in 1989 so I know I’m 30 soon anyway but when you think about the fact that 1990 will be 30 years ago it’s MAD! Please say I’m not alone here. I think of 1970 as 30 years ago still. God I hate getting older. Wish i could have stayed 23 forever 🙂 IMAGINE!!!


Until next month….

Love Aoibhe xxx
