Having spent a glorious week in Spain, I wanted to share my photo diary of my adventures. I had an incredible time exploring and spending some quality time with my family. If I had my own way I would spend the entire Summer there but unfortunately we all have to get back to reality. Last week I featured a few OOTD posts on the blog and today I’m excited to share my love of Spain and photography. I had been looking forward to my much needed holiday and it was honestly amazing to get away and relax. It has been four years since I was last in Murcia and getting back to the beach and culture was delightful. The weather was MAGNIFICENT and I made the most of the heat and glorious sunshine. Waking up in the morning and heading out to the patio for crossiants and coffee was a great way to start my day.
As much as I adore featuring style and beauty products/looks on my blog, I have a soft spot for interior. Growing up and in between wanting to be a surgeon and in the Secret Service (it’s a long story) I wanted to be an Interior Designer. When Ulster Weavers contacted me and asked if I would take a look at their mid season collection for Summer, I was in awe of the quirky pieces. They have added three fresh ranges to their Summer collection along with a variety of unique accessories for interior enthusiasts that will incorporate an exotic twist into your home. The range showcases a bold colour palette throughout the new collection that beautifully takes inspiration from Moroccan Tiles and adorable animal door stoppers.
Summer consists mainly of two things for me – cocktails and more cocktails. I’ve been on some what of a kick and the glorious sunshine we’ve been enjoying doesn’t help! The mind blowing and decadent ‘Lagaritas’ at hotspot, The Perch, left an almighty feeling with me the next day! That’s what Summer is all about isn’t it?! Between socialising and sunbathing this past few week’s have been quite enjoyable! I head off to Spain in three week’s for a well deserved break and I’m in dire need of new swimwear and it’s safe to say I have left it a little late. If any of you can recommend any pretty one pieces or bikinis please let me know, I’m desperate.
There’s nothing more majestic than receiving that ‘order shipped’ email. If I’m in work or out I literally bound my family to the house so that I don’t miss the package! Sounds pretty selfish I know but when I see that “sorry we missed you” card I could cry my eyes out. Anyway, on Monday I was ecstatic to come home from work to see my Beauty Bay order waiting for me. I finally got round to ordering the magnificent Rose Golden Luxury Set Vol. 3 from the iconic makeup brush brand, Zoeva.
It has been five glorious years since I first started up my blog, Niamh Kelly. I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for so long and more importantly, stuck with it. It takes a lot of passion, planning and perseverance to maintain a blog and hopefully build it into a brand. I originally began blogging to build up an online portfolio but overtime it became my baby. I can’t imagine my life without my blog or what I even did with my spare time.
