Behind every successful woman is herself…
I just love to connect with inspiring people on a daily basis – people that make me want to be a better version of myself and that inspire me to believe that all things are possible,
Sometimes I come across these people in my day to day life and it can be in person or even online and I am instantly transfixed by their passion and their love for life. I love this article I came across recently featuring tips from some of the most successful women in the world,
Speaking of successful women, I have a very good friend called Erika Fox who a lot of you will know by the name, Retro Flame, who is such an inspiration to SO many people,
Erika and I actually met through blogging here in Ireland a few years ago and we just clicked instantly…it could have been the mutual adoration for afternoon tea and all things vintage but she is just an absolute star,
Erika is undoubtedly one of THE most hard-working people I know (Hello, she has worked with Olivia Palermo AND Whitney Port!!!) and possesses the most stylish wardrobe and the most beautiful (and oh so depressing!!!) Instagram account,
Let me introduce you to my next Boss Lady star,
Tell everyone a little about yourself:
I’m a Fashion & Lifestyle Blogger currently living in New York (She’s originally from Kerry in Ireland) and I’m the biggest sweet-tooth you’ll ever meet. I’m nearly always wearing a hat and/or sunglasses and I’m completely & utterly addicted to NYC
Best piece of life/blogging advice?
“The doors will be opened for those who are bold enough to knock.” – (I’m always chancing my arm!)
You start your day with/by.…
A quick look on Instagram, followed by an Americano with an extra shot!
Before you go to bed, you….
I usually finalise my blog post for the next day, choose my outfit (saves so much time in the morning) and of course, spend a good half hour on Instagram before finally going to sleep
Favourite thing to do on your day off?
Sunday is my favourite day here in New York and I always spend it wandering around different neighbourhoods here in the City. This weekend, I went to the West Village. I had coffee at one of my favourite cafes, Bluestone Lane Collective, treated myself to some cupcakes at Magnolia Bakery & then walked along the pretty Highline. I LOVE weekends here in NYC!
Your favourite store?
Kate Spade. Their store on Madison Avenue here in NYC is out of this world!
Who are your favourite bloggers?
Your biggest personal/business achievement to date?
Being hired as a fashion month assistant with Olivia Palermo. Still in a little shock about it myself!
You can shop Erika’s similar style here too:
I couldn’t be more excited about going to New York in less than two weeks to visit Erika and her equally gorgeous sister Kaelin - let the adventures begin!
