Back in my old stomping ground of Queen St West. It’s definitely one of my favourite streets in Toronto for whiling away a Saturday. Dotted with independent boutiques, quirky restaurants, cool little coffee spots and not forgetting the leafy green Trinity Bellwoods Park. On this particular Saturday the park was hosting a vintage market. We spent a fine hour or two browsing clothing racks, bargain bins and lot’s of unique industrial furniture finds. Continue reading
Firstly apologies, the above photo look’s like how I’m feeling tonight – a little blurry! I blame an overzealous Saturday night for my blurry head and the cold weather for a rushed job on the snaps. That and the fact that our quiet little back street was all of a sudden bustling full of tourists once the camera starting clicking. I guess it’s to be expected, choosing a location beside Ireland’s most famous brewery. Home of the black stuff – Guinness HQ. The price you pay having Dublin’s gorgeous cobbled streets as your back drop. Continue reading
There’s nothing like changing season’s to add an element of danger to dressing. Not quite winter and not quite spring. Everyday is an Irish day – you never know what you’re going to get! So layering is not only stylish but very essential. These shots were taken on a rare spring like day. Dressed in layers of quilted leather, denim, camo and knit, I was pretty cosy playing tourist at home and taking in some trails at The Curragh. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for lot’s more snaps and adventures as #livingeasydiscoversireland.

What’s on your wish list this year?
It feels a bit strange looking back at these photos soaked in Spanish sunshine whilst I’m sitting on a wet and wild Halloween night cosy on the couch. I’m guessing this will be the last shorts and bare leg post for quite a while – it’s time for winter hibernation! These shots were taken on a day exploring the gorgeous old town of Cartagena, if anyone is visiting the Roman theatre is a must see.
For me an outfit is all about a great base and then adding simple details to make a statement, like my check shirt tied around my waist. I bought it in Stradivarius recently and it’s been on high rotation ever since. I’ve been mixing it up, wearing it buttoned up with skinny jeans and heels, open with a plain t-shirt and of course tied around my waist like in these shots here. What pieces are your favourites to mix and match?
When my sister asked me to be a model for her final hair colour exam, I jumped at the chance! Helping a sister out and getting a free “Do” is pretty much the best good deed I can think of. My instructions for the day she presented her work was to wear black – no hard task for me. Continue reading
