Is Blogging Worth the Time Invested?

Last Tuesday, I took some videos of myself talking to my camera about the current situation I was in. I had seen fitness Influencer Sinead Hegarty look back at old videos she took of herself at her low points and feel accomplished at how far she’d come since then. When…

A Recap of the #AskOrlagh Twitter Chat

In case you missed the Twitter Q&A with me last Tuesday, I thought I’d put some of the main questions here along with my answers plus a little more detail. No 140 character count here, that’s for sure. The Twitter chat was focused on blogging, university, placements, careers and personal…

Is University the Right Choice For You?

At school, I feel like your future is outlined for you. You complete your GCSEs, progress to A Levels and finally go to university. It’s seen as the ‘normal’ thing to do. If you don’t make it to university, you are basically looked at as a failure. Well, that was…

Dealing with Impostor Syndrome

Before we get into it, you’re probably wondering what on earth Impostor Syndrome is. The first definition I found, explained it as this, “a psychological pattern in which an individual doubts their accomplishments and has a persistent internalised fear of being exposed as a ‘fraud’“.

Holly Nichols – Let’s Hear it for the Girls Campaign

I saw images in the news last week of the Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge store having its sign changed to ‘Holly Nichols’ and thought, ‘What an odd rebranding’. With the recent name changes from John Lewis and Waitrose adding ‘and Partners’ to their names, I thought it an odd bandwagon to…

What’s Next for Me?

Hello. You may or may not have noticed that there have been no posts on the blog over the last few weeks. I decided to take two weeks off as I was in the middle of moving my life from London to Liverpool, settling in, trying to locate all of…

The Best Brunch Spots in London

Those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that I’m somewhat of a brunch connoisseur. I like to think I know a good brunch when I see (and taste) one. There’s even a highlights reel on my Instagram dedicated to my favourites which you can find here. Now…

What I’ve Learnt Living in London for One Whole Year

Today, the 24th of June, marks the one year anniversary of my move to London. I’ve been here 12 whole months. 365 days. To say a lot has happened in those 12 months would be an understatement. I can most definitely say that it’s been the best year of my…

A Love Letter to Liverpool

I’m just a few weeks off my London anniversary. I can’t believe I’ve lived in London for almost 12 months now. The year has flown in so quickly, and in just a matter of weeks I’ll be moving again, back up north, to Lovely Liverpool. I don’t think I’ve fully…

The Art of Turning 21

You may have noticed I’ve been quite AWOL on here the past few weeks. Well, those of you who regularly check my blog. Hello to all two of you. The reason I’ve been MIA is because I reached another milestone in life: turning 21! If I’m honest, it didn’t feel…
