The loves of my life: fashion blogger Erika Fox
The fashion blogger and Kerry native, who is thriving in The Big Apple, chats about her favourite people, place and things.
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 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!
Anything by Mumford & Sons.
I'm a huge Julia Roberts fan - so I'd have to choose Pretty Woman.
Relentless by Tim S Grover.
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.
A killer suit and a pair of Manolo Blahniks. It's my go-to look here in New York.
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 Edition Hotel in New York. It's a boutique hotel located in Midtown Manhattan.
The Rose Bar at the Gramercy Hotel, New York.
My iPhone. It's never out of my hands!
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.
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 part of my body
Loyalty. There's honestly nothing more important to me.
Being late. It's definitely something I need to work on!
Anything that smells like coconuts.
I have the biggest sweet tooth ever!
