LaDuree - Dublin

In June of this year I visited Dublin with friends and while walking through Connolly Station I noticed someone carrying a LaDuree bag which I hunted down in Brown Thomas.  I thought I was going to have to go back to Paris for these macaroons but alas they are in Dublin.  If I am honest tho there was no comparison in the taste and flavours available, Paris won hands down!!!

Step Right Up, Get Your Tickets Here



For as long as I can remember I have saved my tickets for everything that I have been too and given a ticket for and i mean everything!!! Normally they were just put into my memory box and I was going to keep them there but them I had a brain wave of putting them into a photo album where I can write at the side, if I remember  who I was with etc.  It took a while at the start to sort through everything but I'm so glad that I did this and it's now very easy to maintain and great for looking through every so often.

Do you guys keep your tickets? Do you have a cool way of storing them? If so let me know

Move On and Let Go

''My dentist once told me that letting go is like pulling a tooth.  when it was pulled out, you're relived, but how many times does your tongue run itself over the spot where the tooth once was? probably a hundred times a times.  Just because it wasn't hurting you doesn't mean you didn't notice it.  It leaves a gap and sometimes you see yourself missing it terribly.  It's going to take a while, but it takes time.  Should you have kept the tooth? No, because it was causing you so much pain.  Therefore, move on and let go.''

I originally heard this song on 'Made In Chelsea' a few weeks ago and finally found it on Spotify and now Youtube! I hope you enjoy!!

Bon Iver

I heard news this month that was very distressing and I want to know whether it is true or not - Is it true that Bon Iver will not be touring again???

They came to Dublin at the start of the month but due to other plans I was not able to go and now I am even more gutted that I didn't get there

To help you through the news if you hadn't heard it until now here is my favourite some from the new album

Bruno Mars

Radio One Live Lounge is great for artists doing covers of songs that they would never normally do. Some of them are absolutely brilliant while others just do not work.  Here is one that works and works very very well . . 

London Town - Portobello Road

Here are a few photo's from my iPhone that were taken from my visit to Portobello Road in London in June 2011 when I was there for the Kings of Leon Concert!

Photo A Day - October

That's What It's All About

because that’s what life is about. it’s about the time when you lay in the grass next to those you love. it’s about the colour of the sky. it’s about a roaring fire on a winters evening, a cup of coffee on a cloudy morning. you’ve got to realize that everybody bleeds, and that everybody hurts. everybody laughs, and everybody smiles. that’s what it’s all about. that’s all it is. there is no set meaning of life, there is nothing that can be defined, or written. it’s a matter of sculpting your very own definition.”

Liverpool - Hope Street

Here are a few of the sights and sounds of Hope Street in Liverpool when I was there at the start of September!! And yes that is a Lambanana!!!


“Maybe that’s what it all comes down to. Love, not as a surge of passion, but as a choice to commit to something, someone, no matter what obstacles or temptations stand in the way. And maybe making that choice, again and again, day in and day out, year after year, says more about love than never having a choice to make at all.”


Amazing song and video to match!!! The Choreography is nothing short of beautiful and very typically Pink!!

Knockagh Monument


A few Sunday's back the weather was beautiful so mum, dad and I decided that it was perfect to take a trip up to Knockagh Monument to see what sort of pictures I could get over the Lough and of the Monument itself.

I remember the last time that I was up there with mum and dad and I thought that I was going to drop off the hill and keep rolling and not stop, luckily that was not the case.

On the way home I got Dad to stop at some of the fields so that I could meet a few new friends who even posed for me!
