Happy New Year, everyone! This is my first post of 2019 and a very special one to kick off the year. You might have seen on Instagram that Cathal Bear and I got engaged during our Christmas trip back home. I honestly still can’t believe I’m saying that because I’m STILL shocked nearly 10 days later. We’ll be together 9 years next week but I swear I didn’t see this coming for at least another year, maybe even two! I wanted to write down all of the things I could remember from that special day and thought I would share it with all of you guys too. I can’t thank all of you enough for your well wishes over the past couple of days. I feel so lucky to have readers who are so incredibly sweet and supportive. Also please brace yourself for an extreme number of exclamation points, I got a little too excited writing this one…

Guys, I cannot believe festive party season is upon us! I’m literally still in November mode in my head but somehow it’s my last couple of days in New York before heading home for the Christmas break! There’s so many things that I’m looking forward to when I get there, but one of the main things is heading out with all of my friends in Galway. I feel like nights out over Christmas are one of the only occasions I have to get truly glammed up because people are pretty casual when they go out here in New York. Anyways, I’ve been doing a lot of browsing online over the past few days trying to find some festive things to wear and thought I would share them with you guys incase you’re on the hunt too! Warning: be prepared for a whole lot of sparkles and low cut things, it appears that’s all my eyes gravitate towards these days!

Happy Black Friday, everyone! I know a lot of people are sick to death of hearing about the sales by now, but I for one always look forward to Black Friday every year since moving to the States. I try my best not to spend a lot of money throughout October and November and then get everything I want when the sales begin. It’s a great opportunity to save some money on things that you know you’ve wanted for a while, but also get started on Christmas shopping! Here’a a couple of my favorite things that I’ve seen so far!
