One Year of Blogging – Highlights

One Year of Blogging – Highlights

Hey Lookers


Last week I celebrated ONE YEAR OF BLOGGING…. I can’t believe where the time has gone and what an exciting year it has been.

A Massive Thank you

Firstly I want to start by saying a massive thank you to everyone who has come on the journey with me. I sincerely appreciate your support so far and for each and every like, comment, share and mention you give me. It really is appreciated. I have also met so many amazing people along the way, got opportunities to work with some great products and brands as well as get involved in the blogger community through a range of amazing events.

Next week I will share a full post about my blogging journey so far, where and why it began, my hesitation and fears in starting it, influences along the way and how it has evolved. But for now I simply want to share some of my blog highlights for the year so far.

The Journey So Far…

Corners of My Home- Interiors

Over the year I have starting to share more interiors on my blog. After completing my new self-build and doing all the interiors myself,  I have a new found love for interior styling and through my blog I like to share some of my own creations and corners of my home, as well as others I love.

Just last week my house was also featured in Northern Woman magazine so I couldn’t ask for a better way to celebrate my first anniversary of blogging. Below are a few snaps from some of those corners in my home and you can read more on these article items by clicking the links.

Passion for Fashion – Fashion & Style

I have a real passion for passion, excuse the cliché, but I love to shop for clothes and keep up to date with trends.  I like to use this space to share some of my new purchases, show how I put an outfit together and share some of my best finds and buys. Below is a snippet of some of my fashion features from over the year.

Roving Around the Globe – Travels

With my full time job as Global Marketing Manager, and often for my own pleasure, I get to travel a lot and get to visit lots of amazing countries around the globe. This week I am on my last trip of 2017 to Sydney, Australia and earlier in the year I got to visit LA, Las Vegas, Austria, Germany and of course a few trips at home in Ireland. Through my blog I love to share some of my discoveries, finds and experiences along the way, whether it be sharing a hotel I loved or the best places to eat to off the beaten track sites and travel hints and tips. Scroll below to see some of my travel highlights from the year.
