My two beautiful children, Harry and Remi. They are, hands down, my biggest achievement, and what I am most proud of in my life to date.
Our wedding day. Walking down the aisle feeling so overcome with emotion, and so ready to marry my best friend, Paul. It was the most overwhelming and magic feeling in the world.
The moment of the day
Around 8pm, when both kids are asleep and I get my first moment of quiet time. Most days are loud, fast-paced and a bit crazy. I recently got a huge new bed from Des Kelly Interiors, and there's nothing like getting into it with freshly washed sheets - it's just completely relaxing.
Breaking the Law by Emili Sande. It was our first-dance song.
The Devil Wears Prada - it's probably my go-to movie when I'm sick, or just want to switch off. I've watched it dozens of times, and never get sick of it.
The Secret by Rhonda Byrne - a cliche, I know, but it is definitely a book that changed my life, and one I go back to time and time again when my mind starts to get muddled.
My mum - she's been through so much in her life, and she still manages to be there for us all.
Sunglasses, as they hide a multitude and make any outfit look complete.
Aside from my iPhone, which is attached to my arm, I love my Fitbit. It keeps me on track and makes me more likely to get up and move in the evening if I haven't reached my steps for the day. I am competitive, so I like to beat my steps each day.
A floral dress, trainers, a cute crossbody bag, and killer sunglasses to hide the tired eyes - it's my go-to uniform most days.
Adare Manor in Adare, Co Limerick.
I have stayed in lots of hotels around Ireland and nothing compares to the wow factor of Adare Manor. It truly has to be experienced to understand its beauty. It's a 10 out of 10 from me.
The pet hate
Lateness. I have a major issue with being late for anything. I would rather be one hour early than five minutes late.
I have never been one to have a massive bunch of friends, but have always had a handful of very close, reliable pals, and that is how I like to keep it. They are all there for me in their own way, so it is impossible to choose just one.
The beauty product
My SOSU by Suzanne Jackson x Rosie Connolly Radiant Magic contour, blush and highlight palette. I created it with Suzanne Jackson, and I can't go anywhere without it in my bag - it's the only thing I reach for each morning when creating a quick, every-day make-up look.
We travelled to Lapland last Christmas with Harry before our little lady was born, and it will forever leave lasting memories for us as a family. It was truly magical to watch the fascination in Harry's eyes - the whole trip made it the holiday to remember.
What others think of you is none of your business.
In winter, a lovely glass of Malbec with dinner; but during the summer, it has to be an Aperol spritz in the sun.
Cafe En Seine on Dawson Street in Dublin is our go-to for a night out. It's newly refurbished, has a great atmosphere and is the perfect place for a date night or a night with the girls.
Pilates is my go-to hobby or exercise. I find it's the only thing that totally switches me off, and my mind focuses on what I am doing in that moment.
The part of my body
My blue eyes. They are the only thing that both of my kids got from me, so I am glad I got a look-in.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley - her style is impeccable.
Kindness - it costs nothing to be kind, but can mean everything to someone else's day.
