My Disney Bucket List

Disney is just so magical, and I don't know what my life would be without it - from still not being able to watch the scene in The Lion King when Mufasa dies, to playing as pirates as a kids because of Pirates of the Caribbean, and being lucky enough to go to Disneyland Paris… Continue reading My Disney Bucket List

DIY Vegan Peppermint Mocha

The Starbuck's Peppermint Mocha is the Pumpkin Spice Latte of Christmas. I've mentioned before how I don't like Starbucks. It tastes way better in America than it does here because companies adapt their products to local tastes, and American's obviously like better coffee than us Irish do. I've never actually had a real peppermint mocha,… Continue reading DIY Vegan Peppermint Mocha

How I’m being eco-friendly this Christmas

A tweet about why we should wrap our Christmas gifts in brown paper went viral recently for a very good reason.

DIY Christmas Treats

I love Christmas, and I love eating healthy foods, but those two aren't exactly synonymous now are they? I don't exactly want to pack on the holiday pounds or go around feeling sick due to an overdose of sugar but I also don't want to deprive myself either. It's all about finding balance. It may… Continue reading DIY Christmas Treats

Coffee Quest: Best and Worst coffee in UL

When the First Seven Week's posted a list of the 20 places to get coffee on campus I took it as a personal challenge, so I pulled fellow Journalism and New Media student Liam (https://winterishereblog.wordpress.com/), and occasionally HPSS student Andrew, with me on a coffee quest to try all of them. We added a few… Continue reading Coffee Quest: Best and Worst coffee in UL

So this time, I'm blogging about something I've done. I've ¬†always had a fascination… Continue reading Bucket List: New York & Radio City Christmas Spectacular
