Vintage Halloween photos

 
All photos from Pinterest




 



I dressed up as Wednesday Adams....which was a pretty lazy option as everyother has the clothers....but pretty effective none the less. I spent the weekend in Europes Spookiest city, Edinburgh which is one of my favorite places, mostlly because of the ghost tours!

September

Six months later I am still in London and failing at the blogging lark. However I refuse to throw this in the can just yet.

Today I want to share Terry Richardson's blog. I've been on it every day for the past few weeks. Its pretty addictive, gorgeous photos of gorgeous people hanging out. He makes everything  and everyone look hipster chic. With a good amount of boobs also. So if you're not into boobs, do NOT click on this link. (...weirdos)


Terry himself




I could continue posting photos all day but I'm watching a film and it very confusing, so I need to pay attention.

Bray Day

I'm pretty much thrilled to be from Bray 24/7, but today is the day the whole country watches the girl from Bray. Dramatic or what.


Katie Taylor (who went to St Fergal's where my mom teaches) is boxing today at 4:45pm today and hopefully win a Gold for Ireland. It's kind of a big deal.


Some of these having being flying about the Internet this past week..

Hashtag Olympics



For months nay years we have been waiting for London 2012, and now its here!.... I though like most people it would be nothing put a public transport nightmare and general pain in the ass. I was wrong, I actually love the Olympics, so much so that I would consider taking up some kind of sport. Everyone is in a great mood and friendly here in London. The bus driver no longer look at me like I'm mental when I say Hello and thank you. Nothing I love more the cracking a smile out of someone, and London is smiling away at the minute - god this is cheesy.



For the Olympics Rio 2016, I have narrowed down some possible sports I could compete in.They are Rowing, Badminton, & Shooting.


Rowing seems the obvious choice, those two Team GB wans hadn't picked up an oar 4 years ago - or so i hear. I have never picked up an oar or been in a rowing boat, or used the rowing machine in the gym. This is a great place to start though, from scratch.



Badminton. Another obvious choice. They didn't do much other than hit the yoke into the net and got to the next round, simples. Also another sport where you get to have a partner - so its not your fault if you lose.



Shooting; well in my books I cant really see this as a sport. If they're letting the lady who's 8 months pregnant compete, surely that means its open to Fatty's? Sounds good to me...




In other Olympic News Katie Taylor of Bray ( BRAY - THATS MY HOME TOWN TOO) is boxing tomorrow. I don't know much about boxing but being from Bray and that my grandad was a boxer I imagine I would be OK at this too. Lets ad it to the Rio list while we're at it.

This week..

Been tweet tweeting more this week as have the London home and work life semi sorted. However I suspect some of you are gagging for more from me ....(Hi Mom) It has come to my attention that Irish people are hilarious and friendly. Think it took being away for so long to see why tourists say that all the time. Not that the Londoners have been unfriendly, on the contrary, but think Irish people have a unique sense of humour that i'm going to miss while I'm here.

Heading to Bricklane for the day to look for tresure...peace out.

Girl Crush

How I have never managed to blog about Beyonce is beyond me. I think she is without a doubt my fave 'celeb/singer/personality' at the moment. I saw her last year at Oxegen with @minifinno and seriously balled my eyes out when she came out. Since leaving her Dad's management her look and sounds are just unreal. The woman is on a role but seems not to have let the fame to go her head...respect



Nicked a few pics from her tumbler, love that she's online now and I'm one step closer to being her friend.



here's pics of actual Beyonce when I saw her





...and now for some tunes




..coming up, "Beyonce and why I love her Volumes 2-12" and "Jay Z and Me"

Oh hi there England

Sooo, this is awkward, I up and left the country and my blog... but fear not dedicated Internet users, I'm here, I'm alive and I'm not going away...ever, isn't that comforting?!

On February 3rd (2012...this feels like it will be an important date for future autobiography ghost writers) I got an email, while I was getting my hair cut in the newly refurbished Peter Mark in Bray, asking me to start on Monday at Fabulous Magazine as an intern. So I thought to myself, as I my hair was being pulled out of numerous rolly hair brushes (which is excruciating), sure why not. 

Home I sped to book a flight and accommodation, moved to London two days later without any sort of plan.



some images of London, none of which look like the London I live it, but sure this is it..


My mom was surprisingly grand with this decision, while obviously I just thought I wouldn't tell my Dad, and he's eventually figure it out (harsh perhaps, but I didn't wanna stress him out)

..And off I went..


Since moving to London from the glorious Bray I have learned the following:

I really enjoy talking to strangers
I still can't cook
Being poor is grand, as you don't mind the noise of your stomach 
Londoners are only nice if you smile (a lot) and play up the Irish-ness
half the people you hang out with aren't really your friends, the few good ones will skype the bejasus outta you though.
I am turning into my Mother every day


That's about all for now, it's raining here, JUST like it used to in Ireland (I've become an extreme Irish Nostalgia-ist). I'm far more hopeful of employment and the likes here than at home, however I SHALL be back to Bray eventually.


Now I'm off to find my dream job....oh joy!

..also go check out my two fav blogs from Cici and Katie!


Tweet me if you're about London for a drink or employment opportunities!
