CONFESSIONS OF A 20-SOMETHING MISFIT: I’M TOO OLD TO DRINK LIKE THIS!

Confessions of a Misfit

It all started out innocently enough. It was Halloween and I hadn’t consumed any alcohol in several weeks, I had the entire weekend off from work and Gryffindor was home for the four days. Cue me drunkenly toppling over in my platform sparkle shoes while dressed as Glynda the Good Witch from The Wizard of Oz, a tiara from Claire’s Accessories balancing precariously on my head. We didn’t … [Read more...]

In celebration of ‘Girls’, a new TV show portraying the messy reality of navigating your 20s, we proudly bring you our own Irish version. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll identify far too much. “Jaysus love, is your arse real?” This was what greeted me as I travelled on a packed Dublin Bus last week, with holes in my ballet pumps and soaking feet, courtesy of the Irish rain.

Our weekly love-in! Declan Leavy is loving… Desperate Housewives. This is a bittersweet love for me. Sweet because I have loved the latest season just as much as the first couple of seasons of the hit comedy drama, and bitter because it is sadly the last season, ever.

Our weekly love-in!   Declan Leavy is loving… New Irish tanning brand, Decadence Beauty But Declan, you don’t really like fan tan?

Our weekly love-in! Declan Leavy is loving… The Silver Cross Sleepover Elegance pram There’s another little Leavy-Hamilton on the way and after two boys, I’m predicting the third will be a girl. But as long as he or she is healthy and all that! If my sister does have a little girl I’m guessing she will look adorable in this super-chic baby transporter. The Chanel of prams, the Silver … [Read more...]

Who or what has a piece of our heart this week?   Declan Leavy is loving… Charlotte Olympia shoes. I don’t mind admitting that I love women’s designer shoes; to look at, not to wear (calm down mum!). So many of them are, quite literally, works of art. I love the obvious; Jimmy Choos, Louboutins, Manolos, etc, but one of my absolute favourite shoe designers is Charlotte Olympia … [Read more...]
