The fashion blogger and Kerry native, who is thriving in The Big Apple, chats about her favourite people, place and things.

The person

My boyfriend, Tommy. We were in school together in Kerry, and now we both live in New York. We're complete opposites, but he balances me out in the best way possible.

The memory

The day I quit my job in fashion in New York to go full-time with my blog, Retro Flame. It is definitely my proudest moment to date, and it's something I'd worked towards for a long time.

The moment of the day

Sitting down and having my first coffee of the day. It's what gets me out of bed!

The song

Anything by Mumford & Sons.

The movie

I'm a huge Julia Roberts fan - so I'd have to choose Pretty Woman.

The book

Relentless by Tim S Grover.

The hero

My mom, Helena. I would never be where I am today without her. She's forever one step ahead, and there is nobody whom I trust more.

The outfit

A killer suit and a pair of Manolo Blahniks. It's my go-to look here in New York.

The accessory

My Chanel Boy bag. I treated myself for my 25th birthday, so it's very special to me. It's hopefully something that I will have forever.

The pet hate

When people push their seats back on aeroplanes. I know it's 'allowed', but it drives me crazy, and I immediately judge them for it!

The hotel

The Edition Hotel in New York. It's a boutique hotel located in Midtown Manhattan.

The bar

The Rose Bar at the Gramercy Hotel, New York.

The gadget

My iPhone. It's never out of my hands!

The friend

My best friend from home, Christina - the person I have the most stories with! We both live abroad now - she lives in Australia - but on the two or three times that we get to meet each year, it's as if we had never been apart. That's always the sign of true friendship.

The beauty product

My Image Skincare Prevention+ Daily Hydrating Moisturizer, It's SPF 30, and I honestly think it's the best on the market. I recommend it to everyone.

The holiday

I recently went to St Lucia in the Caribbean with my family, and it was definitely one for the books. It is such a stunning island.

The piece of advice

The harder you work, the luckier you get.

The drink

Sauvignon blanc.

The hobby


The part of my body

My hair.

The celebrity

Reese Witherspoon.

The virtue

Loyalty. There's honestly nothing more important to me.

The vice

Being late. It's definitely something I need to work on!

The smell

Anything that smells like coconuts.

The taste


I have the biggest sweet tooth ever!
