Hi everyone, my name is Irene and I’m from Galway in Ireland but living in Dubai the past 7 years. Although I absolutely love living in Dubai……Ireland will always be home and I’m lucky to be able to spend a lot of time in both places, so you could say – I have the best of both worlds. I’m a mum to a gorgeous 2 year old girl called Molly and a little boy called Conor who’s just 2 months old – so life is a bit hectic………but starting a blog is something I’ve had in the back of my head for a very long time. I have amazing friends tell me for years that I should start a fashion blog but I’ve never built up the courage to actually do it….until now (I blame all the pregnancy hormones!). So here I am…..and here it is…..even though in my head I think I’m Carrie Bradshaw in an episode of Sex & the City with a walk-in wardrobe, Jimmy Choos and Manolo Blahnik’s to die for and just typing away on my MacBook Air whenever I want……when in reality – I’m most probably blogging between the nursery run, toilet training, 3-hour naps and feeding schedules!
So a few little blog related things about me……….
- I’m a self-confessed shopaholic and impulse buyer. I often think I really should attend some sort of Shopaholic’s Anonymous meetings if they existed but at least I admit it……thats half the battle….right?
- I’m a high-street girl at heart and I absolutely love clothes, shoes and people that know me, know that I’m accessory-mad! I love to put outfits together so I plan to share outfit ideas, style inspiration, what I want to buy and the latest trends and fashion in mainly the high street stores. (I’m also secretly hoping that Primark decide to open in Dubai someday!)
- I love make-up and beauty products – I’m obsessed with false eyelashes and although I’m not a beauty expert by no means, I want to share with you products I’m using and ones which I love, like and maybe not-so-like.
- I’m also very girly…..I’m obsessed with stationery, Unicorns, cute kitsch stuff and homeware especially tea-sets…..so expect lots of pictures in my Lifestyle section to inspire you.
So…..I really hope you enjoy and follow me on my little corner of the blogosphere and remember…………….
