Day in the Life: Let’s Talk Blog Challenge.

28.4.14


Hello everyone! Today marks the first day of Sarah Hamersley’s blog challenge that I’m super excited to be part of. Be sure to check out her and her amazing blog on http://atthebeautydesk.blogspot.ie/!  I’ve been wanting to get into lifestyle posts for a while now but wasn’t sure how to start, so this weeks topic has given me the perfect excuse!

So.. a day in the life of me. Well from Sunday – Thursday this involves me going to work in a teeny supermarket called Mace (all my Irish girls will know this one). So to spare you the ins and outs of a lotto machine and a till, I thought I would catalogue my day off.


It starts, as all Fridays should, with catching up on my favourite blogs in bed! Reading everyone elses posts usually inspires me to get writing myself so I’ll get up, make my bed and plot out some ideas with a frothy coffee in hand. If the weathers bright I’ll usually try and take some pictures for up coming posts, us bloggers have to make the most of all the sunshine we can get!

My favourite place.

View from my bedroom.
Once I’ve done my blogging for the day I usually chill for a bit (hardcore) and this involves reading a good book with my favourite candle burning (currently a Yankee - Sparkling Snow). I’ve read so many recently but I’m currently on Death at Sea-World by David Kirby. It’s written on a topic that I’m very passionate about, killer whales in captivity. A big no-no for me! I won’t get into it here but if any of you are interested in this topic I’d recommend watching the documentary Blackfish, it’s amazing! 




After putting my face on I usually spend Friday afternoons with my gorgeous godson Elliott. He is just my favourite little guy and always puts me in a good mood! I’ll spend a few hours playing with him and my favourite pooches Winston and Oscar before heading home for a yummy curry made by my lovely dad. I always end up stuffed after this and never want to move.. that is until one of the boys texts to ask if I’m going out and for some reason I can never refuse.


Two rascals. 


The best thing about heading out with boys is that I never need to worry about dressing up, so I just stick on a dress, tights and boots and mooch down to the pub with them! Always a great nights craic, all we do is take the mick out of each other! Sometimes I just sit in on a Friday with some wine and ice-cream but I usually try to be a social butterfly in one way or another.

This happens more often than I care to admit..

Cheated: An old photo from when the boys and I had a dinner party, I very rarely capture them all in one picture unfortunately!

And that is it! Nothing too exciting I guess but because I’m currently living at home my life is really family and friends orientated. Making up for the 3 years I lost with them whilst at uni! I hope you enjoyed my little post for this challenge, and now you all know what I get up to on those lovely Fridays! Can't wait until next week! xo

  1. Loved this post! Wine and ice ream are the best nights! I need to buy that book, i thought blackfish was so interesting! I've researching killer whales ever since! (my friend recommended it to me as i'm slightly obsessed with shark documentaries, im petrified of them but find them so interesting!) Have you seen the Cove? I have yet to watch it but i hear its one to watch.

    On a happier note, your doggies are so cute :D

    1. Yes and Sebastian! I'm a big Disney lover if you hadn't guessed haha.

      The Cove is hard going but it's definitely worth the watch, so insightful.

  7. I smiled the whole way through your post Aisling. From the wine, icecream, floral bed sheets and hooded pjs I was like 'wow this is a woman after my own heart' ;) between elliot and the dogs, I don;t know what's cuter. I wanna come hang out with you for a weekend ;) I'm a Christmas candle person all year round too. Thanks so much for taking part in my challenge ;0.
