Beauty and brains is the ultimate combo and upcoming Irish model Louise Sweeney has both in spades.

The blonde beauty, who is signed to 1st Option Models, is currently studying medicine at Trinity College and admits it can be tough juggling the two.

"It's a bit of a balancing act, I'm studying for my exams at the moment so I've had to take a few weeks out, but modelling is a very flexible job and I love it," she told the Herald.

"I love both of them though and there's nothing better after a stressful day of classes than switching off on a shoot."

Once she's finished her exams, the 21-year-old plans to jet off to London as she also has an agency in the English capital.

"I love London and I spent some time working there last year as well," she said.

"The modelling scene there is quite similar to here - I had heard some horror stories but I've had great experiences. I can't wait to go back once I've finished my exams," she said.

The Leitrim native was speaking at the official launch of Life Style Sports' 2015 Holiday Clothes Shop which is now available in-store.
