Little Life Update

Good evening everyone.
Hope ye are all after getting over the weekend. And remember, its only a 4 day week :) For those who work Monday-Friday, that is.

So, if you've been following my Facebook or my snapchat (orla.hartnett), you'll know I am heading to the sun in less than 4 weeks time. To say I am excited is an understatement. My last holiday was in February, where we headed to London for 3 nights. But for anyone who has been on a city break, knows its not really a holiday as you are on the go constantly as you want to get so much seen in such little time. It is always so nice to get away though, but sometimes you just need a week where you do nothing. So that's the plan for this holiday. I am heading away with my mum and my aunt. I was meant to be going with my boyfriend but he is starting a new job this Monday, coming so unfortunately he can't come with me. But I am looking forward to some chilled out girly time too. Because I know my mum and aunt will have no problem lounging by the pool or the beach all day and then coming back to the apartment to get dolled up for dinner and cocktails.I'll be a bronzed goddess, hopefully.

All of my social media has been quiet recently as I used up all my data in 10 days. I have no idea how, but I think its snapchat that is using the most, so I really have to limit how much internet I use when not at home. How did we manage before without 3G or WIFI even? So this month I am going to try and be really good with my internet use so I'll have loads of data left for my holidays.

As some of you may know, I work in a Nursing Home as Care Assistant full time. I work 3 or 4 12 hour days a week. Some may say, oh that's great you only work 3 days a week. Yes I do, but they are long days and some days are extremely tough. I work in the Challenging Behaviour/Dementia Unit. I absolutely love it, but it is tough. Some nights when I come home, I'm fit for nothing, my brain is tired and my body is tired. So that's another reason why some days my social media may be quiet.
But I can honestly say I love what I do. There's no better feeling in this world than leaving work after a long and tough day knowing you've made a resident smile that day that may have had a few bad days. I love my residents as if they were my own family😀
 I'm not going to go into the ins and outs of that horrible illness, but if it's something you guys would like to read about, just let me know. 

But my little blog is my getaway, if I can call it that. I love sitting down and writing a post on something I am passionate about. It's so completely different to my full time job so I love the contrast. I love connecting with you guys, helping you with tanning dilemmas or the many other things I get mailed about.

I always find it harder to blog in the summer, as the evenings are long and I am out and about doing things and enjoying the summer. But what the hell is going on with the weather? As much and all as I love summer, my favourite time of year is Autumn and Winter, when the leaves are changing colours, the colder evenings, the wooly jumpers. What's your favourite time of year?

I am also bridesmaid for my best friend in October so we have a lot of planning to do before then. Dress fittings, practising walking in those extremely high shoes she picked, hen party prep and spa days of course :)

So, that's just a little life update from me guys. If you have any questions, you can contact me on any social media or pop me an email,

Chat soon guys :)
