❆ Chrismas Gift Guide: For Her (Under $300) ❄

Not a single time in the 4 years I've been blogging have I ever made a gift guide. Blasphemy! I love gift giving, I've had a Christmas gift list going on my phone as early as July (no shame) so I've decided it's finally time to put out my own version of this classic blog post into the world!

Now let me reiterate: this is a guide. It's meant to spark some inspiration in people looking to give a lovely lady in their life something special. If you find the prices of some of these items disturbing, don't fret - there are cheaper alternatives to literally every single thing on this list. My goal is to make you think "Hey, good idea! I bet little Suzie would love a record player for Christmas!" and then go off and start your own hunt. That being said, if you do fancy a specific item on this list, everything will be linked below and NOTHING is above $300. None of my links are affiliate links, I am not paid to promote any of this, absolutely ZERO money will be made for the intense amount of time I put into this - promise! These are genuine recommendations with no strings attached.

God's Own Junkyard

Last weekend Joey and I hopped over to London for a weekend of non-touristy exploring. Why non- touristy? Well, at this point I've been to London 5 times (Joey has probably been upwards of 20) so we decided for the most part we we're going to live the local life and explore things that weren't quite on the tour guide radar.

Magic in Mallorca

If you're an OG reader of this blog, you'll remember Grant & Julie. They are my ride or die bitches from back home - we've gone on numerous trips around Europe & California, most of which have been documented on this blog!

This past month they've been visiting me in Dublin, and last week we made a cheeky trip over to Mallorca, Spain. We were all craving a beach-y vacation, and after weeks of deliberating about the location, we agreed Mallorca seemed to be the perfect place!

We head off late on Friday night, arrived in the dark, had some dinner & then woke up to THIS:

Day trippin': Skerries, Ireland

Last weekend I told Joey I wanted to take a drive to explore somewhere in Ireland I've never been before. Ireland is pretty tiny and I haven't seen a LOT of it, which is a massive shame considering how long I've lived here! He wasn't in the mood to go anywhere too far away, so we agreed to visit a lovely little seaside town called Skerries, about 40 minutes outside of Dublin.

Independence in Ireland

Happy 4th to all of my American readers! ☆

I held a celebration at my apartment yesterday and it turned out pretty good considering I live 5,000 miles away in a city that has a ban on fireworks. Last week while I was in DC I had a sneaky Target run (or 4) and picked up a couple things to make sure my soiree was as American as I could possibly make it:

Favorites from: Washington DC

Hi, hello there, remember me? Yes friends, I have been gone for quite a while. Honestly I have no excuse, all I can say is that my blogging inspiration was non-existent this past month. My brain felt like a bump on a log. But alas, I HAVE RETURNED!

Packing List: (Long) Day Trip

Last weekend Joey and I hopped on a 35 minute flight across the Irish sea to spend a day in Liverpool. When I say a day, I mean a day - our flight left Dublin at 7am and we arrived back in Dublin at 11pm! I put a lot of thought into what I wanted to pack because I needed minimal luggage & optimum creature comfort for trekking through a city I've never been to before for 14 hours. I ended up being incredibly happy with what I brought with me so I figured I'd share some of my tips on how to pack for a long day excursion!
