Is ‘Influencer Privilege’ a Thing?

Last Thursday was a huge day for the lives of many students across the UK and Ireland as they received their A Level and Leaving Cert results. I remember clearly the morning that I received my own results, now four years ago. I was able to receive all of my…

Gig Review: Lewis Capaldi, Croxteth Park

My gig reviews are getting quite repetitive. Apart from Fleetwood Mac, it seems all the acts I’ve recently seen are ones that I’ve already seen live before. Westlife, Picture This and now Lewis Capaldi. I just wish I had started writing these reviews a lot earlier as I’ve seen a…

#FridayFive: Five Things I Miss Most About Liverpool

I’ve been back in Ireland three days now. Not even the full 72 hours yet and I already miss it so much. I’ve left my house once to get storage bits so that I could unpack and that’s about the height of it. Now that I can finally watch Netflix…

The Leaving of Liverpool

There’s a box of tissues sat next to me as I type this. I’m thinking I’ve played it too safe and may have been wiser having two boxes. This post was due to be published on the 6th of July, my original move out day. Then I pushed that back…

Where to Stay in Dublin: 10 Hotels Tried and Tested

When I say I spend a lot of time in Dublin, I really do spend a lot of time in Dublin. Sometimes I end up spending more days in Dublin throughout the year than I do at home in Lurgan. Of all my trips to Dublin, I’ve stayed in quite…

In case you have clicked onto this blog post in a fit of rage, ready to go all ‘keyboard-warrior’ in my comments section, I can promise I am not saying that anyone is too old to work in PR – didn’t you note the title was a question? I am…

10 Things You Must Do in Liverpool

Since it’s almost time for me to leave this amazing city (the tears are coming), I thought I should start writing some posts about the place before I do go. Even though I’ve lived here for three years, I’ll admit it wasn’t until my second year of living here before…

#FridayFive: Five Films and TV Shows that Influenced My Career

Believe it or not, it’s not just people on Instagram that can influence us. Your next door neighbour, your mum, a book you read or even something you watch on TV can shape or alter your life choices. Growing up, a lot of people and things influenced the decisions that…

What It’s Really Like to Study PR

If you don’t already know, last week I graduated from university (not that I’ve plastered it all over social media or anything). It felt like a long time coming but also, those four years seemed to go by in a flash. Now that I have the piece of paper that…

And Today Matthew, I’m Going to be… a Graduate

That was the caption I was going to go for on my Instagram but I thought it might go over the majority of my followers’ heads because Stars In Their Eyes was a little bit before their time. The caption that I did go for? ‘Ats us graduated nai,’ which…
