You would think my first post after getting married would be all about the wedding but I wanted to be honest. Yes, the wedding was amazing - magical even.
It's been a manic few weeks and a long time ago, knowing our wedding is in May, I earmarked Easter's lovely long weekend for a break for ourselves.
Working for myself and managing multiple projects at a time means I can easily get very frazzled. I love what I do but structuring something creative is tricky.
Valentines Day rolls around next week on Tuesday. Whilst I am fully aware these days are marketing strategies, the sentiment behind it has me thinking.
Having lived abroad in both London for College and also Los Angeles (for my post on LA, see >here< ) I finally lost the travel bug and learned to truly love living in Dublin.
When it comes to new year fitness I'm not going to lie, I am not one of those people who naturally loves working out.
Last week I had a facial with Catherine Azzariti who is the Yonka educator and we spent over two hours chatting about skincare, wellness, and creating the right atmosphere in a salon.
The sad reality is that you most likely wont reach your thirties without having to work some personal issues out.
Settling into early January I am full of good intentions. A new year brings a form of blank slate.
We are just back from what sounds like, but genuinely was, a magical weekend in Paris.
Coming towards the end of 2016 I've had a bit of time to reflect and I realised this was one of those years filled with lessons.
There are Christmas decorations, and there are Christmas Decorations, and Hayfield Manor exceeds any and all expectations you might have had before.
I've always been a fan of life's little luxuries and receiving flowers is one of those things that makes me so ridiculously happy.
A few weeks back I was invited to join an intimate group for a weekend retreat based in Wicklow run by Maria from Life Cleanse.
While we were in London Andrew's truly talented sister Debbie Castro took these pictures of us and I really love them. That weekend was quite pivotal for quite a few reasons and it marked a turning point in thing for us, for Nutmost, and also for Holly.ie. I also got out of a blogging rut, finally!
September was always going to be a busy month for Nutmost. It started with Dublin Vegfest, then Wellfest, followed by setting up stall in the Supervalu tent at the National Ploughing and last weekend it ended with attending the Blas na hEireann awards at the Dingle Food Festival
When I started this blog originally seven years ago I was a different person and the blogging industry was completely un-developed. Now as I write this, it's a different ball game.
Last week I had the chance to work with Alex Hutch. I had seen his imagery and met him a few times, the right working opportunity just hadn’t presented itself. TK Maxx contacted me to do some blog work with imagery for their newsletter and the perfect opportunity to work together presented itself.
As Summer’s go weather-wise this year has not been great. Whilst there have been moments of vaguely sunny weather, it’s been pretty gloomy overall. All Summer long what has kept me going was a gorgeous invitation to celebrate the marriage of one of my best friends in Lake Como.
Being somewhat naturally slim I avoided exercise entirely up until I was twenty. I never saw the fun side of team sports and once obligatory hockey could be abandoned in school I was delighted. During my twenties I dabbled but never really stuck to much consistently. Upon the recommendation of a friend I emailed John Belton and booked in for a chat.
When I decided to host my first event I was very much going on an instinct and a sense of hope. I had a desire to create the ultimate luxurious, yet accessible, bridal preparation day out.
A while back the lovely people in Frockadvisor asked me to compile a list of some of my favourite places in Dublin. Frockadvisor is all about celebrating independent retail so we put together this list with emphasis on unique places you will find no where else in the world- that's what makes them so special!
