Dance… it’s cheaper than therapy!

This time last year, I had written what I thought was a really cringey blog post on my first year of salsa dancing (for my sins, you can read it here). I published it, didn’t broadcast it too much and thought I’d got away scot-free without any of my dance friends seeing it. Except I…

Sunday Snapping: A Day In Dublin

Confession time – I didn’t take these photos on a Sunday. In fact, I actually took these photos in June, but I thought I would hold on to them for a slow week on the photography front, as they didn’t seem to fit anywhere else. When I went to Dublin to see Nashville In Concert,…

Nashville In Concert: When The Bluebird Cafe Came To Dublin

Three days after an incredible concert and I’m sitting in front of my laptop, still buzzing a little and trying to figure out how best to put into words just what an amazing night I had at Nashville In Concert in Dublin’s 3Arena. After religiously watching four seasons of the country music drama that had brought the…

Review: Fusion Afternoon Tea at Solo Kitchen and Bar*

When you work in Belfast’s top luxury hotel, you see a LOT of afternoon tea, and sometimes even get to eat it if you play your cards right. However, one thing I hadn’t ticked off my list until this weekend was the ‘Asian Fusion’ Afternoon Tea. I love Asian food, I love cake – sounds like a…

I’m BACK! 10 Things I’ve Been Doing This Summer

This blog post is part apology, part catch-up and part a kick up the backside to begin blogging again. Since returning from my holiday to Greece – you know, that one that I couldn’t stop blogging about – things have been a little crazy. Not only did I start a new job, I also made…

6 Monday Moments: 9th March 2015

This week, I’m trying out a new type of post, and one that I hope to continue on a weekly basis. Though, having said that, my weekends aren’t usually as busy as this one was, so maybe once per month would be better than boring you all to tears. We’ll see how we get on! In a…

17 things that will definitely happen if you’re on Tinder

Unlike most twenty-something singles I am not ashamed to admit that I’m on Tinder. And, just to clarify, by ‘on Tinder’, I don’t mean that I spend my evenings frantically swiping through the ‘eligible’ bachelors of my local area, wistfully hoping that one will catch my eye. All the same, I am partial to a right…

10 things that will definitely happen at your first Zumba class

Are you still a Zumba virgin? If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you will know that, aside from travel writing and blogging, I am also a Zumba instructor. How does a journalism graduate wake up and decide she wants to stand up and dance like a crazy woman in front of 20…
