Vegas

Welcome to the best weekend of my life.

Vegas is honestly the funnest place in the world. If you are going I AM SO JEALOUS OF YOU. I will definitely be going back to Vegas as soon as I can. If you’re a guy reading this then I hate to break it to you but Vegas is a gals world. We paid for nothing on our nights out, free in to clubs, free drink, VIP tables right next to the DJ; it was unbelievable.

Where we stayed:

We stayed in MGM and it was so so nice. I would definitely recommend spending the money on a nice hotel in Vegas. I think staying in MGM was worth every penny. The nightclub Hakkasan was in MGM which was so handy when we were going out. Other hotels that looked really cool were:

  • Cosmopolitan – Marquee nightclub is in here and some unreal restaurants.
  • The Venetian – This has a shopping center with a mini Venice going through it (so cool.)
  • Bellagio – The Bank nightclub (R&B) and so so beautiful inside. It also has the fountain show outside it.
  • Ceasars Palace – The coolest hotel ever and the set of The Hangover so I definitely want to stay here some time.

Going out:

So we were in Vegas for 3 nights and went to Hakkasan 2 nights, a pool party at Marquee and Jewel in Aria for the last night. The clubs in Vegas are insane. If you want guest list there are usually reps everywhere that can get you whatever you want basically. Make sure if someone stops you asking about clubs that you talk to them. If you are a group of girls they might ask for your Instagram. Here are the reps we used (we just used Whatsapp to contact them):

  • Tony (Rep for Marquee nightclub and pool party) –  +1 (702) 238-6186
  • Nick (Rep for Wet Republic and Hakkasan mainly, he also got us free in to Jewel and Ceasars) – +1 (908) 625-0517
  • Jesus (Pronounced like hay-zeus.) – +1 (702) 809-0551

Another hack for girls is to post a picture on Instagram when you’re there with your location as Vegas and maybe #vegas and #girls and reps message you on Instagram offering free stuff.

For getting VIP tables etc that basically just happens when you walk in. You just get asked to join a table or if you are a big group you can get your own. We didn’t buy any drinks we just went to tables with free drinks lol.

Food experiences:

There are so many nice restaurants in Vegas, here are a few we went to:

  • Eggslut – In cosmopolitan, basically just all egg sandwiches and so good oh my god. Really cool spot as well.
  • STK – I had been to STK before in London and it was unreal so when I heard there was one in Vegas I had to go. It is expensive, your full meal will be the bones of $100 but very nice to go to if you love steak and want a fancy meal out.
  • PF Changs – We went here so much! It’s basically a chain Asian restaurant and it’s so so good. Get the Mongolian Beef or the Pad Thai.

These are the only restaurants that we went to but there are so many nice restaurants in Vegas so you could defo find whatever sort of food you want.

That view pic up there was taken from the sky deck penthouse suite in the Aria from an after party we were at. We basically were put at this VIP table in Hakkasan right next to the DJ and got talking to this big group of people. The main guy was friends with Drake and started Facetiming him in the club and showing us videos of the two of them together. Anyway so about 15 of us all went back to this after party where they said they had a sky deck suite (we were like nah he defo doesn’t.)

LADS… This is what it looked like:

It was the biggest most amazing hotel room I’ve ever been in. At about 5:30 am the guy who was staying in it (minted) asked us if we wanted any food so we were like ya sure some chicken fingers (lol), next thing these waiters rock up to the dining room in the suite with a full spread of steak, lobster tails, bottles of Moet… – Most surreal night of my life. He was gambling downstairs and lost 6 grand in 60 seconds no word of a lie. CRAZINESS.

Hope ye all have amazing time in Vegas, I’m so jealous and I wish I was going back. #soon

Instagals you need in your life

Hey guys! Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

So I was scrolling through some of my posts from last year and I came across a blog post I did that was just like this, so I thought why not do an updated one? I love following new people on insta and I am all about the creeping life tbh. Here are a few girls that I have been obsessing over and you need to get obsessed with them too.

Be warned there are literally so many because once I started looking for people to put in this I couldn’t stop and literally stalked for hours so here is the result of my fangirling. Enjoy xo

@louisajayne_

This girl knows how to dress. I constantly visit her page if I’m looking for some outfit inspo (even though someone must beat me to it because everything she wears is almost always sold out.) Her style is so edgy and cool and she is amazing at turning a blazer co-ord into a funky outfit anyone could wear on a night out. Not to mention, her accessories collection is to die for.

Slay my life Louisa, slay my life.

You can follow @louisajayne_ here.

@louisecooney_

(Shoutout to my gals that have to put an underscore at the end of their insta name cuz someone already had it. #thestruggleisreal)

Louise is KILLING IT these days. After just starting to work as a blogger full time, Louise’s feed is probably one of the most aesthetically pleasing feeds you’ll find. If you don’t follow her, you need to. Her photos and outfits are always on point and just to add to the appeal, she also has the cutest puppy ever.

Her frequent travels also provide some much needed inspo and jealousy.

You can follow @louisecooney_ here.

@jesshunt2

I need this girl’s gym plan, her body is insane. Jess has a talent for spotting amazing pieces from your favorite online stores and she looks amazing in all of them. She models for Pretty Little Thing and In The Style so this girl is defo someone you need on your timeline.

GORGEOUS

You can follow @jesshunt2 here.

@aislingchan

The most beautiful girl inside and out, Aisling is definitely one of the most stylish people I know. Hair goals, makeup goals, outfit goals and just goals in general. She is amazing at finding those outfits that are just in the middle of being dressy or casual. Every outfit she posts I need in my life and so do you. This baby girl kills it every time.

I can’t cope.

You can follow @aislingchan here.

@jaydepierce

Jayde is honestly one of the most beautiful girls I have ever seen. Her makeup is always flawless, I don’t know how she does it. From following her on Snapchat she also seems like the loveliest girl ever. But lads, her baby is the cutest thing in the world. I’m obsessed with following her and her cute little family.

THE BABY LADS LOOK HOW BEAUTIFUL SHE IS.

You can follow @jaydepierce here.

Freya Broni:

Freya’s feed is a vibe. I have never seen such amazing color coordination. Her unreal high street picks will do damage to your bank account, that’s for sure. Her style is edgy and girly at the same time and if anyone knows how to rock a winged liner it’s ma girl Freya.

Yass baby girl.

You can follow @freyabroni here.

@tammyhembrow

You must live under an insta rock if you don’t know who Tammy is. She is the queen of Instagram. Her body is insane, she dresses like a queen and her family is the absolute cutest. I’m in love with her Youtube channel as she is just so funny and real. As well as being an absolute beauty she is also a very successful business woman. Tammy Hembrow is a girl boss and I am all over it.

The way she matches outfit with her daughter HOW CUTE OH MA GAAAD.

You can follow @tammyhembrow here.

@niamh_lovelife

Niamh knows how to work an over sized jumper. Her page is overflowing with inspo on how to mix prints, layer and how to die you hair the funkiest colors. She also just announced a very exciting collaboration coming up with Missy Empire! This gal is going places and I will be stalking her insta for the journey!

Inspo for dayysssss

You can follow @niamh_lovelife here.

@kaelin_fox

Kaelin’s wardrobe is to die for. When she goes glam I honestly don’t think anyone does it better. She always looks effortlessly classy and sophisticated no matter what she is dressing for. Whether its a casual day of shopping or a wedding, you can guarantee Kaelin will nail it every time. Her travel inspo pics are always incredible also.

When that picture in the white jumpsuit came up on my timeline I would have liked it 20 times if I could. STUNNING.

You can follow @kaelin_fox here.

@freyakillin

This girl’s fashion sense is bomb. She always looks so effortlessly glam and wears the most amazing clothes ever. Her pictures in London make me want to move there asap and she also loves to share her food experiences with us and you know I am all about those food experiences. If you’re reading this Freya pls take me to dinner with you, you find the most amazing spots.

Food, clothes, London – what more could you want?

You can follow Freya here.

@emmajcotter

This girl is GORGEOUS. She is another gal to follow if you love that effortless and sophisticated look. Scrolling through her feed is so satisfying as its filled with fab outfits, food inspo and the current pink theme it’s got going on makes me feel some type of way. Emma has got style and I need her wardrobe asap thankQQQQQQ.

How cute is she? Can’t cope.

You can follow @emmajcotter here.

@aideenkatemakeup

I need Aideen to paint my face. Her makeup is incredible. How is it so blended and perfect all the time, I’m like TEACH ME YOUR WAYS. She is so beautiful and so so creative with her makeup. I mean if you ask her for a smokey eye you can bet there will be glitter and extra sass all over that smokey eye. I am obsessed.

She is also great for some outfit inspo, the gal literally does it all.

You can follow @aideenkatemakeup here.

@oh_so_femme

I use Ashlee’s feed as my personal shopper, she shows me the clothes and I buy them. Ashlee’s fashion sense is fab. She always picks the quirkiest things from the high street and pulls them all together to make some show stopping outfits. As well as that her makeup is always flawless. That girl knows how to paint a face. Another bonus is how cute her Northern Ireland accent is on Snapchat. Just a fab girl all round.

Fab, fab, fab.

You can follow @oh_so_femme here.

@dominiquenugent89

Last but by no means least, the fab Dominique. I love her clothes so much oh my goodness. She finds the most amazing pieces I honestly don’t know how she does it. I constantly go for a scroll on her page if I’m looking to update my wardrobe. Basically she looks amazing all the time and you need to follow her.

Such a gorgeous girl!

You can follow @dominiquenugent89 here.

Well guys that is the end of this post. There are so many amazing girls here and I literally could add so many more but you would probably be scrolling for days! Please do follow all these gals, they are so fab and deserve all the success in the world! I will try to do a few more of these posts as I love finding new people to follow and I usually share feeds on my Instagram story but I wanted to have some here so that everyone can see them. Please do follow them they deserve it!

I read an article the other day from a very popular blogger saying that there wasn’t any room for bloggers in the industry anymore (which I think is a load of bollocks) and it urged me to write this post.

There is room for everyone to be successful!

There are so many beautiful, creative, amazing and talented girls out there that absolutely deserve to do well in every way. Blowing out somebody else’s candles won’t make your light shine any brighter. When I was reading that article it annoyed me because who gives anyone the right to tell someone they can’t do something? Basically if you want to do anything don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Surround yourself with people that support you and anyone who doesn’t is basic and needs to get a grip.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and I’ll chat to ye next time!

Panama

Bocas del Toro:

Where we stayed:
•Loved this!! It’s a group of islands so you can island hop around for a good week!
• We stayed in Selina (Bocas Town – Isla Colon). 11/10 recommend. So nice again and great craic. If you see a Selina’s anywhere defo stay in them. There are loads around central America and they are all v safe and fun.
• Isla Colon: this is the main island where most of the parties are and airport also here. You can walk everywhere  and has nice restaurants too.

What we did:

  • We rented a bike to cycle to bluff beach which is a huge isolated beach. It was amazing and had huge waves too!
  • You can do boat snorkel tours here, rent quads, paddle boards, but mostly drink so fun!
  • Red Frog beach: a beach on Bastimentos  island which is much more chilled and relaxing. There is a Selina hostel there too which is gorgeous.
  • The other islands are up you if you want to go. There are some gorgeous, isolated hostels on The Solarte island if you want.
  • Be there for a Friday! – Filthy friday’s are an all day drinking party which is a pub crawl on a few islands and ends in Selina in Bocas town. Unreal

We flew from Bocas town to Panama City – highly recommend. Cost €109 for 45 mins versus 13 hour bus (unsure of price).

Panama City:

Where to stay:

We stayed in Occidental hotel which was very nice and modern. It had a very nice buffet breakfast and a very cool sushi bar inside. It was a good location and I would recommend a hotel here for more of a safe experience.

*Disclaimer – I was given a discounted rate for us to stay at the Occidental however all views and opinions are my own.*

What we did:

  • Shopping! Multiplaza mall for a spot of shopping (Zara, forever 21,Nike, Gucci etc).
  • We did the hop on hop off bus tour for a day to see the Panama Canal, Old town and whole city really. I would recommend. If you have time spend a while at the canal museum – very impressive.

Where we ate:

  • If you like Thai food – P.F. Chang’s is a restaurant here which was delicious!
  • Hard Rock Hotel has a very nice restaurant and an unreal rooftop bar! We went here on our last night.
  • For breakfast we were given access to the buffet in the restaurant and it was delicious!

Other tips:

More places to go:
• the main other go to place which I didn’t do was San Blas islands. It’s very difficult to get there and it was either Bocas or that, you wouldn’t need to do both.
• San Blas looks very idyllic but the logistics were better for Bocas and also more nightlife in Bocas. Choice of which set of islands to do is up to you!

$$$ :
• Panama uses American dollar.
• It was more expensive than some Central American countries but not extortionate.
Costa Rica was by far the most expensive country but it is fine if you don’t eat in the fancy restaurants and make rolls for lunch and do public buses.

Costa Rica

La Fortuna

How we got there:

We flew from Antigua, Guatemala to San Juan international Airport in San Jose. No visa required. Don’t stay in the city it’s v dodge especially for girls. Look up the public buses as any private transfers in this country are extremely overpriced!!

We got a taxi once we got OUTSIDE the airport as we missed the public bus to La Fortuna. Haggle, haggle haggle! La Fortuna is the town to stay in for Arenal Volcano.

What we did:

  • Hiking an adjacent volcano for a beautiful view of volcano and of Arenal lake.
  • Ziplining.
  • Baldi hot springs/ Los Lagos hot springs are nicest to swim in.
  • Quad biking.
  • Horseback riding.
  • White water rafting. (Activities can be expensive here so just choose your fav tour and enjoy!)

Where we stayed:

We stayed in Arenal backpackers hostel which was very nice. If you want to splash out you can stay in the hotels with the hot springs (named above). They’re a bit out of town but town isn’t that nice anyway.

Monteverde:

How we got there:

We organised a shuttle to Monteverde through our hostel in La Fortuna. It cost $25 usd.

What we did:

So Monteverde is a little town in the middle of the mountains that has beautiful national parks and reserves with hanging bridges, sloths, cloud forests and general nice walks through the dense jungle.At the start of the walk along the hanging bridges is a hummingbird location where we saw dozens of hummingbirds. We did amazing zip lining in Selvatura park! The lines were very long – some over a kilometer. Included in the zip lining was a Tarzan swing which was scary but so so fun. You end the tour with the longest zip line in Costa Rica and you go so fast over the forest it was very very cool.

Where we stayed:

We stayed in a private room in sloth backpackers, it was actually fine and was approx 15$/night.

Manuel Antonio:

My favorite place in Costa Rica!

Where we stayed:

Stay in Selina hostel Manuel Antonio. It is literally the go to spot at night, has three pools, private deluxe areas if you want to splash out or nice enough dorms. Really nice food to – get the Penne Rosa. We had so much fun in this hostel – except for my bed getting stolen by this crazy girl one of the nights (snapfam knows..)

What to do:

  • Main beach is great for surfing if you want to try it.
  • We found a beach called Playa Biesanz which is a smaller beach with way less waves, more like a bay. Very relaxing, we preferred it.

Getting around Costa Rica:

  • Public buses are so grand and so much cheaper. E.g. From Monteverde to Manuel cost us $8 on public buses or $50 if we got a shuttle bus. Took us 7 hours was so fine.
  • The order of places is up to you but I would advise if you’re flying to more countries e.g. Panama some towns have airports you can fly from eg Quepos (Manuel Antonio). The local airline to Panama is Nature Air. We took the Caribe bus to Bocas del Toro which I would recommend at $75 and 10 hours or so.

    I’ve tagged all the places above in my Instagram if you want to look up locations.

    Other places you could visit:
    • Peurto Viejo (Caribbean side) beachy town before border of Panama.
