Forget balance

I know that in theory balance is everything. I often talk about it myself, especially when it comes to food. I try to eat healthy Mon – Fri which takes a lot of planning and work. At the weekend though I allow myself to really enjoy the food and not be a bore sticking with…

Banana & date clusters

I was feeling like something sweet and tasty but I was conscious that since I’m supposed to be eating well Mon – Fri (strong emphasis on ‘supposed to’ right there), baking was out of question. I tried to come up with something healthy-ish that would hit the spot and that’s how these messy clusters were born. They…

Red winter warmer 

  A steaming & comforting bowl of spicy soup on a day like today (a windy, rainy Bank Holiday Monday) goes a long way. It puts me in the right mood, it also heats up the house and spread a joyful smell of cumin, chilli and well, love basically if you like your food as much…

NYFW’15 favourites

​I am no longer sure whether it’s catwalk or sidewalk styles that I most look forward to during fashion weeks. I always find New York to be the most inspiring and it didn’t disappoint this year either. Here are some street style shots of my fave details / outfits which I will be absolutely robbing…

Marbelous

I don’t exactly remember the moment I stepped into my boy’s apartment for the first time but I do remember thinking one thing: What the heck with the marble and weird lights?! The floors in the hall were indeed marble and they were illuminated by blue, slightly over the top spotlights. I am yet to figure…

Girl-about-Paris

Established by Judith Milgrom, Sandro founder Evelyne Chetrite’s younger sister, Maje has a very fresh take on French style. A little boho and a lot of chic, it always leaves me dreaming of a stroll around Paris. Some inspirational shots from the AW’15 lookbook below. I will have a tassel or two…         …

Santorini & Greece

I have recently had a small holiday in Greece. It was my first time travelling there and I was really impressed by it. Not sure if impressed is the right word but I enjoyed it so much! I had rather high expectations of Greece and it actually managed to exceed them. Which was rather great.…

The best cuppa in town

It took my friend’s wedding (or rather her hen) to finally get me to try an afternoon tea. I have always looked at various deals, recommendations and photos of prettily arranged delicacies trying to come up with an occasion that would warrant such a lovely meal. I couldn’t think of a better choice for J.…

Editorial – Irish Tatler Sept’15

Although I easily get excited by spring and I have a lot of appreciation for days that don’t end at 4 o’clock, autumn steadily remains my favourite season. It seems to suit Dublin (and Dubliners) a lot better. Wardrobe malfunctions are  not as frequent to come by and there’s no sight of burning red T-shirt…

Boqueria Dublin

It’s only appropriate that my first post is food related. I am inspired and passionate about so many things but at the end of the day, most of the time, it all seems to come down to good food. After a spell of poor dinners out I would lie if I didn’t say I was…
