DIY- Fairy Glow Jars๐Ÿงš

You will need:

Mason Jars (I used 3)

Glow sticks

Scissors

Glitter (optional)

Break the Glow Sticks.

Teenage disco throwback

Cut each end of the glowstick (wearing protective lab gloves) (I also wore an apron to protect my clothes)

Allow the contents of the glowstick to drip into the jar/ shake the glowsticks in the jar.

You can mix the colours if you want. I put green into one jar, yellow& blue into the second and pink& orange into the third.

Add some glitter. Put on the lid and shake the jar so the contents of the glow stick and glitter is swirled around. Place the lid back on.

Turn out the lights!

Bristol๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

Over a year ago, I visited Bristol with my Mom. My aunt won two flight tickets on the radio and gave them to us. Bristol is somewhere I would never think of going otherwise, so it was hard to know what to expect. We stayed for 3 nights in a lovely hotel close to the centre. One of the days we went to Bath, which was an hour bus journey. It was worth the trip to this pretty town. Highlights in Bath included The Roman Baths and a Fashion museum. There are lots of shops in Bristol and one of the main attractions was Clifton Suspension Bridge. We also did a river cruise.

Milano๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

Last year my family and I went to Italy for the first time. In the good ole days we used to go to Spain a lot, so Italy was somewhere new and exciting. We flew into Milan Bergamo airport and stayed in a lovely hotel called Hotel Mediolanum for three nights. It was an enjoyable trip and we plan on visiting Rome on our next holiday.

Places of interest we visited were Duomo dil Milano, Teatro alla Scala, Sforza Castle, Corso Buenos Aires, Porta Venezia, Piazza della Repubblica, Piazza Gae Aulenti. One of the days we visited Lake Como, Bellagio and Varenna. It was well worth the hour journey by train to see such spectacular scenes. It was January, so a quite time of year to visit for tourists. It would be great to go again in the summertime. Decathalon was one of my favourite shops in this city. This is a big sports shop with good quality clothes for a low price that is popular in many European countries. I also loved the Swatch shop. Foodwise, a large quantity and variety of pizza and pastas were consumed throughout the four days. This city has wonderful architecture, galleries and theatres. ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ

Welcome to my blog ๐ŸŒธ

I should be studying for my M.Sc exams, but here I am writing my first blogpost. As day 29586928582348529 of quarantine passes by, I reflect on the year that has passed and the good times that were had. I am missing seeing classmates on a daily basis and going for lunch together.  Some of us were lucky enough to travel to London for a weekend getaway before the lockdown started here in Ireland. People have mixed opinions about doing a Masters degree, however I do not regret my decision at all. The knowledge and experience gained will help me going forward in my career, I may write another blog on this topic in the future. I look forward to what the future holds and I am hoping travel restrictions won’t last too much longer. The novelty of weekly zoom calls with friends is wearing off, however it is a good excuse to whip out a bottle of wine and snap whacky filtered selfies. I will keep this first blogpost short and sweet, however I look forward to creating more content in the future. I have always loved art and photography. Since I will have more time to develop my skills after completing my Masters degree, I am excited for what the future holds.
