Taylor Swift 1989 | Album Spotlight


This post has been sitting in my drafts for ages, I completely forgot about it! I bought this album after hearing it was very 80's pop even though I'm not the biggest fan of 'Shake It Off'. I am so happy I bought this, I love it back to front! It's great and here are my top five songs from the album. It's super hard to get audio so I thought I would post people's covers, people helping people! 

Wildest Dreams 

Welcome To New York

Out Of The Woods

This Love

Have you heard the album, what's your favourite songs?

The Pinterest Present


This year for my 22nd birthday I received this present from a good friend. Like can we just take a second to appreciate how totally me this is. It's perfect. If you haven't read my 30 before 30 post then I'll leave the link here but the idea steamed from there.




The cutest idea of all the cute ideas. I just thought I'd share this with you to give you some gift inspiration as the big boy holiday fast approaches.

Lush Haul | Christmas


Christmasssssss the snows falling down, Christmasssss I'm watching it fall. 
It is that time of year again were the Christmas albums are on full blast and I think there perfectly matched with a super warm bath at night with lush. I think I was quite tame this year but here's the four products I bought to me from Santa. 

Father Christmas | The ultimate Christmas bath bomb, starts from red and turns your bath green. It smells identical to snowy fairy and the bubblegum lip scrub. 

The Christmas Penguin | How cute is this little guy, bless. A crumbly bubble bar with super fresh ingredients that will give you a refreshing bath for sure. 

A French Kiss | Not in the Christmas collection but lavender is one of my favourite scents. It makes you feel so soft and it's really moisturising. Perfect for before bed time. 

Christmas Eve | I can't wait to use this the night before the big crimbo day. It smells amazing!

Room Tour | Arts & Crafts Pegged Photo Frames


I though I'd show a few of my photos and how I display them in my room. I saw this pack on eBay for only 99p and thought it was the cutest idea ever! I'm sure it's easily made by hand, but for 99p I couldn't not buy it. The photos don't fit exactly and it does look all over the place but I like it messy and I'm sure the photos will change over time. The pack is below and it was such quick cheap delivery. 


I have a lot, a lot of photos so I like finding other ways to display them around my room, especially because it's small so it's great having them displayed in different ways other than just setting them on a shelf was great!

Belfast Christmas Market


Everyone looks forward to the Christmas Continental Market coming to Belfast City Hall each year. It's so lovely walking around in the dark late afternoon with all the pretty lights. There's a lot of different stalls with food from around the world and little handmade trinkets.



I wanted one of those notebooks so bad but they weren't in my Christmas budget, I have little money and a lot of people to spend it on! It's packed every year, all day every day, it's definitely a Belfast highlight. I went on a Sunday night with my friend Gareth, there was a lovely little buzz about the place. Christmas spirits were high, I only wish there were giant speakers about the place to blast Christmas music! Looking forward to going back to the beer tent for an all day Christmas sesh when the home birds fly home from uni.
