Dinner in London

London is a foodie’s heaven, with every dinner being better then the last, there is no way that you can fit everything you want into one trip. I have been building a list of my favourite restaurants over my past few trips there, and have tried to split up my London posts to avoid an information overload….

When in Rome

Big check off the bucket list. I finally got to see the beautiful Rome, and it did not disappoint. There is so much to do, see and eat in Rome, and it is impossible to get everything done in a few days. Hopefully my little ‘When in Rome Guide’ will help steer you in the…

What to do in Santorini

Hopefully by now you know where you are staying in Santorini, if not, check out my last blog post Where to stay in Santorini. Now it is time to figure out What to do in Santorini. Below are some of the things we did during our stay that we loved. Catamaran Tour: If you can only…

Where to stay in Santorini

I had the absolute pleasure of visiting one of my bucket list holiday destinations this summer. Santorini is just as beautiful as the pictures, and more! It is the most breath-taking and special place I have ever been, and I am so excited for you to experience it. One of the first questions you are…

An Evening in Lucca, Italy

The stunning walled city of Lucca, Italy is well worth a visit if you are in the area. While we only spent one evening in Lucca, I think that is more than enough time to get a taste for the gorgeous city. It is known as the city of 100 churches, and it’s cobbled streets are…

Breakfast – Nutbutter

Dublin’s newest ‘healthy’ restaurant has been attracting Instagram enthusiasts (me being the biggest culprit) from near and far to its picturesque little café. Nutbutter is located just a 10 minute walk from Grand Canal Dock dart station making it the perfect little weekend outing. I would recommend getting public transport, as parking in the area…

My Favourite Summer Dresses 2018

I have compiled a list of some of my favourite summer dresses from the likes of Zara, ASOS, Missguided and a few more. The best part is, it’s just in time for the summer sales (not all items listed below are on sale). My mum hates online shopping, so gave me the task of picking…

5 Tips to Help You Stay on Track While on Holidays

Holidays are to be enjoyed and we are all guilty of eating and drinking a bit too much, but that’s what holidays are all about. If you are like me and hate the sluggish and bloated feeling you get after overdoing it for a few days, I have compiled a list of things I do…

Dinner – Shanahan’s on the Green

Shanahan’s on the Green is an authentic, American style steakhouse that can be found in a modest Georgian townhouse, just off St. Stephen’s Green. The restaurant screams luxury and elegance, with the high ceilings and fireplaces, creating the perfect wintery ambience. Food: I would definitely recommend having a light lunch, or skipping it all together…

Iceland on a Budget

Back in January, I made the long-anticipated trip to Iceland. It had been top of my bucket list for years, and I can certainly say that it did not disappoint. I will most definitely be making a trip back, as the five days we had didn’t nearly cut it. It was honestly like no holiday…

A Weekend in Paris

Paris is a very likeable city with loads to do, see and eat. However, its size can be overwhelming and I understand you might not know where to begin. Hopefully this post will point you in the right direction during your short stay.  Fly into: Paris-Charles de Gaulle. Although the flights were a bit more…

My Autumn Zara Favourites

I am not going to pretend I am some kind of fashion expert, honestly, I am quite the opposite. It’s a rare day when you see me out of my beloved gym leggings. Anyway, this year I decided would be different, I would wear ‘normal person’ clothes. I decided to start expanding my wardrobe, and…

Brunch – San Lorenzo’s

San Lorenzo’s is a modern, Italian style restaurant located on Georges Street. It’s location takes a prime position at the downtown end of the culinary-famous, Camden Mile, in the centre of Dublin City. San Lorenzo’s are well known for their #BrunchOfChampions which is served from 10am to 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays. It’s video of…

Why ‘If It Fits Your Macros’ Might Not be for You

Flexible dieting or IIFYM (if it fits your macros) is the process of tracking your calorie and macro nutrient (protein, carbohydrates and fats) intake. This eating practise allows you to be flexible in the things you eat every day, so you can technically eat whatever you want, once it is inside these macro nutrient goals….

A day in Lisbon

If you are staying outside of Lisbon it is well worth making a trip in to Portugal’s capital at some point during your stay. We were staying in Cascais a 35-minute train journey outside of Lisbon. Their train systems are easy to use and super cheap (only 2€ each way), so you have no excuses….

The Oitavos Hotel Cascais, Portugal

The blue tinted mirrored panels give nothing away when you pull up at the Oitavos Hotel Cascais, Portugal. Upon entering reception, you will think you are back at the airport terminal or maybe even in an Ikea with the high ceilings, long corridors and expansive seating areas. A peculiar hotel we thought at first. Our…

Where you Should be Eating in Fuengirola, Spain

It is easy to fall into tourist traps and get ripped off on the Costa Del Sol if you don’t know where to go. I am lucky enough that the few times I have visited Fuengirola I have been with people who have holidayed in Fuengirola their whole lives and appreciate good food as much…

Breakfast – Fern House café, Avoca Kilmacanogue 

I don’t think there is a better spot for breakfast than Avoca’s award-winning Fern House Café. The spacious, Victorian style fern house is uniquely decorated with orange & lemon trees, making  it a special breakfast location in any season, not to mention the food. When you eat in (or from) Avoca you know you are…

Dinner – Nightmarket Ranelagh

Nightmarket is one of Ranelagh’s newest editions, taking over from ‘An Bhialann’ at 120 Ranelagh, Dublin 6, one of Dublin’s foodie hotspots. Nightmarket brings together traditional and authentic Thai food, while trying to use as much local produce as possible. Set up by an Irish man and his Thai partner they aimed to create a…

American Road Trip – A Snapshot

As many of you know I spent the month of June road tripping down the East coast of America. The plan had originally been to do the West coast but due to a few complications we concluded that the east coast made most sense. Anyone who knows me knows I love having a plan, so…
