Ganni Jumper Look4Less

Ganni is one of those brands that I feel like has been in the background for a long time and is only now getting its time in the spotlight. A few years ago I remember picking up a jumper in a department store in the US and imagining  it would be the 60$ kinda price point. Alas it was Ganni and I got the shock of my life, t'was a lovely sweater though. The sweater below in particular has been fundamental in making Ganni the brand it is today. I feel like every notable fashion blogger account on instagram has featured it. As flattering and cosy as this jumper appears to me even I have my limits. I also believe that if I'm spending big money on knitwear it needs to be cashmere.

Boston Total Experience Tour with Grayline

When I discussed this trip with friends and family everyone told me I would feel very at home in Boston. And we certainly did. Boston is one of the oldest cities in the United States and the European influence can be seen everywhere. It would be hard to find a city is the USA with as much history. Home to Harvard, the first University in the US as well as being the location Samuel Adams chose to give speeches advocating independence from Great Britain. With all this history, it would be crazy not to take a city tour!

Washington DC: Monuments by Night Tour with Urban Adventures


There’s something about experiencing Washington D.C. after sunset. The moonlight makes it feel almost like you have been transported back in time. Washington D.C. is a city I have always associated with one of my favourite films, National Treasure. Because of this association a vital part of visiting D.C. for me was seeing and experiencing the iconic monuments and landmarks. We visited Washington D.C. in July too so a night tour is ideal to take advantage of cool evenings.

The Grand Canyon West - A Once in a Lifetime Trip with Big Horn Wild West Tours



It’s great to escape the craziness of Las Vegas for a day and experience some culture. It would be simply crazy to travel from as far as Europe and not visit the Grand Canyon. Now the logistics of it, the Grand Canyon is quite a distance from Las Vegas and certainly deserves a full day trip.

San Francisco City Guide


San Francisco was the first stop on our American Adventure. And surprisingly it felt quite European to me, almost like a Californian Lisbon. One important thing to remember is that every neighbourhood in San Francisco is completely different and has a contrasting vibe – from cute Victorian houses in Haight Ashbury to the colourful Castro.

Union Square Hideaway - The Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel San Francisco


My best friend, Heather and I had the pleasure of being guests at The Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel during our time in San Francisco.  The Clift Royal is a contemporary luxury hotel with roomy quirky guestrooms and suites. This landmark hotel has the wow factor when you enter the reception and then again when you open the door to your room.

San Francisco Extranomical Tours


With such a short amount of time in San Francisco we were determined to see the most we could. I always find the best way to do this is to take a tour. It takes the stress out of the process – you don’t have to worry about navigating the local public transport system and finding sites etc. Extranomical Tours are the go to company for tours in San Francisco. They run every kind of tour imaginable from Yosemite Day tours, Napa and Sonoma Valley Wine tours and City Tours. We chose to take a city tour in order to maximise our time in the city.

I love ASOS. But it's like a vortex, I find it hard work to sort through the overwhelming amount of stock to find the real gems. ASOS launched their Summer Sale yesterday so I have decided to share my top picks. 

Happy Shopping!

Dolce&Gabbana Hydrangea Dress Look4Less

Florals are a given for Spring but it's not often my favourite flowers, Hydrangeas make an appearance. Seriously though, could you get a more Spring appropriate print? Dolce&Gabbana have done it again! This dress is insanely beautiful but I don't think over €3500 for a statement dress can ever really be justified.

The Valentine's Gifts to Buy Yourself

Because Galentine's > Valentine's, right. Valentine's Day shouldn't just be restricted to honoring the love you have for other people, this year why not celebrate yourself! I've rounded up some pretty gifts that will brighten up your Winter:


An Overpriced Rose Candle

Let's be real, the same price as an overpriced bouquet but it'll last way longer! And you can never have enough candles, that's just a fact of life.
