 Scenes from last night's @prizefightwhiskey trail trying the delicious whiskey in a variety of ways in hidden bars around Dublin   I've been contacted a lot on Snapchat recently (icomeundone) about blogging advice; how to start, what to expect, how to get noticed etc sooo, I decided to pen a little blog post consolidating all of the answers I've been giving in response into one big tips post . Then the post got crazy-long as I rambled from one topic to the next trying to cover all avenues before it quickly occurred to me that it's near impossible to break 4 years of experience into one readable post . What I ended up with is a chatty post talking about my journey to full-time blogging and, opening up about the challenges facing bloggers today so, if you're considering starting a blog yourself or, just interested in hearing about my experiences click the link in my bio to read the post in full xx || Shop similar pieces from this look with @liketoknow.it or paste http://liketk.it/2r9wb into your search bar ❤️ #liketkit  Thank you so much for all the gorgeous feedback on yesterday's post talking about body positivity guys...

The only way is up from that point ) An absolute pleasure to be in the hands of such a skilled woman ❤️ Is my body 'bikini ready' though? Well, this is my body IN a bikini so by that simple fact alone I'm going to state that yea, it is . Like most people, I go through phases of being body confident, working out less, eating more... but overall, despite rarely being the skinniest girl in the room I've always been very happy with my figure . Not only do I think it looks pretty decent, I'm also fortunate enough to have working arms, eyes, legs etc- as 'the sunscreen song' would say; it's the greatest instrument I'll ever own. Here's the thing though- the legs on this healthy body are what I used to walk into a store yesterday & return a delivery I'd gotten. Why? Because their largest size trousers didn't accommodate my size- a size 12 🤔-- I would've gotten an XL without issue but large was the biggest size those trousers came in; I was officially too big to shop there. I'm not sharing this because I was bothered- I could rationalise that this experience was utterly ridiculous and, completely reflected the brand's idiotic sizing, not my frame which is a perfectly healthy weight . I'm sharing because I know many women, perhaps not as self assured as I am, would walk away from that experience feeling like shit, believing they're 'frumpy', 'fat', 'unattractive' etc . So, today's public service announcement is to remind you that a clothing label doesn't define your worth, a clothing brand doesn't get to decide what you can & cannot wear and, a poorly sized item of clothing should never be the cause of your head being held a little less higher . #SlayOnLadies  Thursday TreatWant to win a gorgeous afternoon tea in the @morrisondublin for yourself & 3 friends!?? ☕️ Click the link in my bio to enter on my Facebook page, winner named on Sunday- good luck everyone! xx
 Researching for this month's food post  I get people contacting me almost every day asking for restaurant suggestions; some recent followers who don't realise I post on the blog monthly about all the new places I tried and loved... some long-time followers who say that there's 'too much choice' on the blog now  If you love eating out in Dublin but don't know where to start when you hit the food section of the blog why not try a place or two (or all? ) from each month as I post them? A little icomeundone food tour of Dublin if you will ... if you're up for the challenge be sure to let me know what you think of the places, I love getting feedback from you guys on which places you loved (... & didn't love!) because hey, you're the whole reason I write them! ❣️xx  When it comes to shoes theres nothing like a fresh pair of white trainersObsessed with these minimalist @lacoste from @jdsportsie  The perfect shape for almost any look xx #jdsportsie  Thank you so much to @theivydublin for having us in for dinner last night ❣️; as a bar I've come to know well for it's epic cocktails & prime people watching location it was great to get the chance to see what else this spot has to offer ... They didn't disappoint  That's number 4 for this month's food post with more hopefully to come xx  Absolutly loving my new balayage, cut & @greatlengths_ireland extensions from the deadly gals at @kellyleunghairdesign Literally can't remember the last time I was so happy with my hair (didn't realise how badly it needed to be cut until I got the chop ) If you're looking for a salon where you'll be listened to, have a great laugh and leave with a hairstyle you love this is your place x (This is my hair after curling AND pinning though  if anyone has tips on how to keep a curl please let me know ❣️)
