Happy Thursday everyone! It’s been a great week so far, coming back from my mini trip to Boston and having a short work week has me feeling well rested and a little more inspired than usual. When I did my survey a couple of weeks ago, many of you were eager to know more about my career path and my job at Teen Vogue so I wanted to give you guys some background as to how I got where I am today and the whirlwind journey it’s been. I touched on this topic briefly before in my Tips For Finding Your Dream Job post but I wanted to give you guys a little more detail today!

So I know I’ve been back in the New York groove now for nearly two weeks so this post may seem a little late, but if I’m honest it took me a while to be able to sit down and actually comprehend how I feel about being back in the big city. I was home for two whole weeks over Christmas which was such a treat (did you see my latest vlog about it?) If you guys follow me on snapchat (michaelabear1), you’ll know that every year I literally start looking forward to my Christmas trip home in like, September! It’s funny, sometimes I think being away has given me a whole different appreciation for life at home in Ireland. People are just so friendly and warm and there’s something about being around your own people that makes you feel right at home, not to mention the beautiful Irish countryside and sights that I TOTALLY took for granted when I lived there!

Hi Guys! I’m so excited to share todays outfit post with you all, Edelle and I shot it this weekend during the snow-pocalypse here in New York! While I was home for Christmas, I did a little too much shopping on the high street. It’s funny actually, so many people think NYC is the best place in the world to come shopping, and it is in many respects because of the variety available and huge number of stores. But personally, for the stores and brands that I love, it actually makes a lot more sense for me to shop in Ireland! Topshop, Zara and River Island are literally a fraction of the price compared to here so I definitely used that as an excuse to go a little crazy while I was there! I picked up this leopard print coat in the Zara winter sale and even though it’s a little out there, I kind of love it! Also snagged these patent leather Topshop boots for less than 40 squids and I couldn’t be more obsessed with them! They’re perfect for wearing when it’s raining because they’re waterproof!

Happy Sunday Everyone! I’m so happy the first week back post Christmas is finally behind us! It’s always quite an adjustment settling back into a normal routine after being on such a wonderful holiday but thankfully this week went off without a hiccup! If you follow me on snapchat (michaelabear1), you’ll have seen we had a snow day here in New York yesterday and it was SO much fun! It was my first time seeing NYC completely covered in snow and everything looked even more beautiful than usual! Anywho, here are some of my favorite things I came across on the interwebs this week!
