Isn't it crazy how fast the time goes ? I had this post scheduled for last week and got so caught up in work and other completely random things I couldn't get myself to even turn on my laptop. I really do

At home

I always thought my first own place will be very spacious and glamorous , the kind of an apartment you see in movies - with windows from the floor to the ceiling, wooden floors, fancy vintage couches, rustic wallpaper in the bedroom and all white furniture. When I first started searching for my own place I wasn't going to settle for anything less! After two weeks it hit me that I live in Cork and sadly there's no flats like that in Cork, unless you look very very hard and have seriously lots of money to spare. 
I had to settle for a cute but small apartment in the city centre. It's super girly and cozy and although I hate the off white wall paint and carpet ( could go on forever on how much i hate carpets ! rugs yes, carpets no no no no )  I've got the most handy kitchen ever, and since kitchen is my kingdom it makes up for all the other aesthetic inconveniences. One of my friends called it a 'woman cave' ! Quite an accurate nickname if you ask me. 
I  thought having your own place is going to be the best thing ever. You can throw parties whenever you want or have all the personal space that you need. And you know, it's like all yours. The ugly truth is that it's actually an awful lot of work to try to keep it tidy, in my case the smaller the space the bigger the mess. I sometimes feel like I'm tidying and re arranging all the time yet everything is still all over the place ! I moved in about 6 months ago and still got 3 boxes in the hall that I'm yet to unpack. All this time and I still haven't quite figured out how to work my heating, change a bulb or fix the sink when it's leaking. If you're thinking of getting your own place think again ! If you can stick to just admiring pretty interiors on pinterest, it's all much more glamorous on the internet, and bookmark this post for whenever you're craving some interior inspiration x 


20 random facts about me

Today is officially my first proper day of summer! Now that I should have a little more time to myself I'm super excited to go back to more regular blogging. I thought I would start with a little get to know post and 20 completely random facts about me. Enjoy x




1. I have this ridiculous love for bread. I love anything bread or bread related. You can imagine my struggle when trying to go off carbs even for a day :'( 
2. Margaret isn't my actual name but I'm so used to it I sometimes forget my real name.
3. I'm a diva when it comes to food. I refuse to eat in a restaurant that has ugly plates and doesn't serve food in a nice presentable way.
4. I have probably the weirdest taste in music. I go from a phase to a phase, right now I'm all about Arctic Monkeys and The Weeknd but  some days I'm all into Led Zeppelin then switching to Disclosure so on so forth.
5. I'm a massive coffee addict. I'm getting to a stage when 4/5 coffees a day is a norm. I sometimes even have coffee before I go to sleep.

6. I'm a marketing student and I have no idea why I've chosen this particular course. Guess it was a spur of the moment and pressure to just go to college and do something with myself. All my life I have seen myself studying something much more artistic, not complaining though, after all marketing is art in a way. 
7. I don't think I could go a day without my phone , just the thought of forgetting it at home terrifies me !
Phone case from www.zazzle.co.uk

8. I have the memory of a gold fish. I'm forever finding myself doing something and forgetting why I'm doing it. 
9. BUT I have a scarily good memory for people's faces. Once I've seen someone I will always recognise their face, even after I forget where and how I met the person .
10. I ALWAYS wear flats on a night out. I'm the kind of girl that dances all night long, I couldn't deal with sore feet and sitting down in the corner watching other people dance.
11. I'm a hopeless romantic and genuinely believe there's a soulmate out there for everyone.
12. LOVE love love British movies with Hugh Grant or Colin Firth. Aren't they all just amazing ?
13. Love British accents too! Maybe a little too much.
14. After I finish college I wanna move to Thailand/ Bali/ Lagos for a year.
15. I can't deal with horror movies. I get too paranoid after watching them so I'm avoiding them at all costs.
16. My favourite flowers are peonies.


17. So far I've been to London, Paris, Lisbon, Faro, Kusadasi, Istanbul, Bangkok, Phuket, countless places in Poland and Ireland, Lanzarote, Odessa, Amsterdam, Tunisia, and some small city in Russia. On my 'to visit' list still I've got like 100 more places with Barcelona and Bali being the top two.

18. Speaking of lists, I always make lists but I can never stick to them.
19. I have a one small tattoo and getting two more this summer .
20. Nothing makes me happier than chocolate ice cream and pizza.
