Let's Talk Blog Challenge - Aishling's Day in the Life

This is week one of the #letstalkblogchallenge and if you don't know what that is here's a quick explanation in the words of creator Sarah's Blog.

So this is going to be a 6 week challenge, with a different topic each week that we'll write and tweet about. The plan is to write and schedule our posts for Monday at 8pm and then tweet our posts on twitter at that time, using the hashtag #LetsTalkBlogChallenge. That way every Monday at 8pm all our posts are live and we're all online to interact and share our posts with each other. I'll be online from 8-9pm every Monday, reading and commenting on all the posts and chatting to you all, just so there is a sense of community and interaction.
The topic for this week is; Day In The Life. Kerrie and I are going to share the post so you'll get to see a day in the life x 2! Kerrie was up first and her post is here.  Hope you enjoy a little snap shot into our lives.

Week 1 Lets Talk Blog Challenge; Day In The Life of Aishling.

At the beginning of my day I woke up and the first thing I saw was the tulips I bought in Lidl and the beautiful day outside!

After that I get dressed and had my breakfast. Just some cereal which I forgot to take a photo of! A comic I had ordered arrived in the post so I took a photo of that along with some jewelery that I was putting away and taking the tags off. I got both the necklace and bracelet for half price in Tescos the other day.

 Thor: God of Thunder, Elephant Necklace & Turquoise bracelet (modeled by my boyfriend Steve) both from Tescos :)

I unfortunately forgot to take any photos of my lunch but after we brought our dog Merle for a walk along the canal! It was a beautiful day and I got lovely photos!

All the photos were taken with my iPhone and edited in the VSCOcam app which is one of my favourites! I especially love the last photo because it looks like an old photo from the 60s or 70s. 

After we came back from the canal I had a nice bath using Lush's Golden Egg. It's so glittery and smells amazing! I will have a review of it up very soon!

I forgot to take any photos of my dinner, I'm not great at photographing food ha! I was more concentrated on eating it than photographing it! I then went on the internet for awhile and later watched a few episodes of Hannibal. Hannibal is fast becoming one of my favourite tv shows! Would highly recommend :) 

That's all from me. I enjoyed doing this post and think I will do some more in future. It is quite hard to do if you don't have much going on though! I hope this was interesting enough. I can't wait to see posts from everyone else on this! :)


  1. So glad ye both decided to do a post! Was wondering how ye would make it work :)

    Haha looks like your Steve is as good a model as mine! Bit unfair that you are so good at photography though! All your pictures look so great, you are after putting the rest of us to shame :O

  2. It looks beautiful by the canal. And that Golden Egg looks pretty awesome too. Will definitely need to investigate that. :) Rach X

  3. That looks like a beautiful walk and how pretty is the view from your window? Well jealous!

  4. Not sure how we'll do the next few weeks but separate posts were best for this!
    Steve put on the bracelet himself and all haha! :D
    Aww thanks you! I have a proper DSLR camera I was suppose to use but ended up with just my iPhone! It takes pretty good photos! I think it was the good weathers fault they came out so good though :P
