Malloween

Malloween- Not ghouls made from marshmallows but Halloween in my hometown Mallow! Last Saturday night Furiosa begged to be taken on a night out. Not satisfied with having a day out at a Mad Max demolition yard in London back in May*, she wanted to experience Malloween for herself. First stop was The Mouse Trap, a little…

Today Show – Breast Cancer Special

I was thrilled to be invited to be part of RTE1’s Today Show Breast Cancer Survivor Special on Tuesday 20th October. I never expected that just in my first week back to live in Ireland that I would be on Irish television twice!! It was a great show dedicated to Breast Cancer Survivors with informative…

I AM Ireland, Ireland (I) AM

I was delighted to be invited on TV3’s Ireland AM along with Deirdre Featherstone, a fellow Irish breast cancer blogger who’s blog is called “Kicking the Shite out of Cancer” on Thursday 15th October. I arrived into Dublin the day before to be styled by Judy Gilroy at Oasis. Her room was super cool with…

Sam McCauleys, Douglas & Chemospiration!

Apologies to all my readers for the delay since my last blog post. I’ve had a very busy month as I was preparing to move home from London to Ireland. I’m happy to report that my husband and I have arrived safe and sound yesterday to my home town Mallow, Co. Cork where we will…

Chemospiration, Wexford and Sunshine!

Teaming up with Tanorganic, Sam McCauleys and Marie Keating Foundation, 17th July was a fun Friday, not only for the sun splitting beautiful sunshine but for the great cause it was in aid of. Sam McCauley and Tanorganic donated 1euro per bottle sold in June and July to Breast Cancer Ireland. Marie Keating Foundation were…

Saturday Night Fever!

I have been out of action for the past few weeks as I had my operation on 20th April, which went well and which I’m still recovering from. This time has allowed me to reflect on my appearance on Brendan O’ Connor’s “The Saturday Night Show” in RTÉ’s Dublin studio on 11th April which still seems so…

Love Your Head Day!

Today is the 10th March and my 32nd birthday. It was also supposed to be the day of my 5th session of chemo however I hadn’t taken the steroids in preparation for it so they sent me away from the hospital for me to do my chemo tomorrow instead. I’m extremely disappointed as I wanted to mark my birthday…

Snoods of Fun!

When you have a bald head you quickly realise how insulating hair must have been!  I sometimes feel a chill around my ears and the back of my neck even when I’m just sitting at home working from my laptop. It’s important that Chemotarians avoid getting sick or picking up a cold since our immune systems are taking a battering….

Black is Gold, Bolivian Queen

Before my new look, whenever I got ready in the mornings I would always put on my make-up first which was usually fail proof subtle brown eyeshadow. I would then quickly fix my hair, throw on whatever respectable looking, mildly put together outfit I could find with understated accesories and then run out the door….

Futuristic Warrior

When I sent my dear friend Ombretta photos of my new look, she told me that I looked like a Futuristic Warrior and I thought “Yes! That’s exactly how I feel! I feel powerful, I’m a Futuristic Warrior!”. So with her words in my head, I got my inspiration for the day  “Retro meets Futuristic…
