The Coat Vote

Choosing the right winter coat is a personal thing. You can buy into the reigning trend (this season it’s anything goes– yes, it is) or you can stick to something timeless that will take you seamlessly from season to season, year after year. Much as retailers (us included!) want you buying all year, every year, a winter coat is best selected with some care and consideration. It’s meant to be

Coasting It

It’s funny how having visitors to stay can suddenly open your eyes to a place you have been taking for granted for far too long. Okay, so being a Glens girl might have something to do with my bias here, but in all seriousness, as much as this little postage stamp otherwise known as Northern Ireland can sometimes tear your hair out (sun, seriously, where are you? It’s June?!), we

Well, I’ll Be ‘Dammed’

It’s been ten years since I last set foot in The Dam. I was on a scoot away from someplace like Middle Earth in France and basically spent most of my time wandering up and down PC Hoofstraat (the equivalent of Bond Street in London) taking pictures of the Chanel window. This time round, older, wiser and with a Longchamp backpack as opposed to the shabby one in my teens,

Take A Chill Pill

Sometimes you just need to slow down, take a moment, and breathe. Yoga isn’t just a trend; it’s a way of life. Just kidding, we say that about coffee and donuts too. Margaret swears by yoga and attends her weekly classes religiously. If, like me, the commitment of a weekly class (or of any kind, ha!) terrifies you, then Adriene is your go-to-girl for the best and most effective yoga

How To: The Art of Hygge

The French would say ” la vie est pleine de petits bonheurs”, the Danes call it “hygge.” Whatever, it’s not a competition, but they are doing their very best to tear me away from my adoration of France. Francophile or not, I can still appreciate the easy, “hygge” way of going. Even it doesn’t roll off the tongue just as easily – “hoo-ga” in case you were wondering. I think. To

Ice Ice Baby… How To Handle The Humidity

From baltic to balmy. Well, we asked for summer and we got it. Albeit in one day. The humidity is getting to us. Monica, we feel you. Staying cool and maintaining an emblem of chic is proving to be difficult given these soaring temperatures. It’s all well and good when you’re on holiday, poolside with a mojito and surrounded by strangers, it’s a different ball game when you are trying

And The Insta-Grammy Goes To…

New year, new you!

Well, it might not boost the morale but it sure is a good way to stay in the know and here’s how

Your Autumn To-Do List

It’s October and autumn is officially upon us (hooray!). So I have decided to help you make the most of this season with a ‘to-do’ list. Embrace plaid. Checked scarves are everywhere. Yes we may look like a walking picnic blanket but we love it! Grab your apron and try your hand at making pumpkin soup. This seasonal favourite will keep you warm on those cold evenings and better yet

Leaving on a Jet Plane

Budapest. And we’re excited. As much as I love lazing on the beach, supping a mojito; it’s hard to beat a city break avec les filles. Strolling through a city, sipping un café au lait is right up my street. Throw in a couple of my best friends and it’s a great way to recharge those batteries and the culture vulture in me gets a spin out too. So far, so
