With her short blonde bob and super cool style, Niamh Webb O’Rourke is someone I’ve been following on Instagram for years. Her original and unique looks along with her super honest and inspiring blog posts always have me interested to see more.
Her blog, Love Life Blog Ireland, has been going from strength to strength over the past number of years, massing an incredible 43,000 followers on Instagram alone. Working with a number of massive high street stores, she certainly knows how to put an outfit together. If you don’t stalk her page on a regular basis for outfit inspo, you really should! Check out her Instagram here.
I was thrilled when the Limerick based blogger said she would take part in my Five Minutes With series! She couldn’t have been nicer and came straight back to me with the answers. She is just the cutest!
So lets get straight into it and hear about where she likes to shop, her favourite trend right now and what she really thinks about the blogging industry in Ireland at the minute.
Tell me about your blog? When and why did you set it up?
My blog is just like a little corner of the internet that I hope inspires people to push their fashion boundaries, embrace their uniqueness and a place where they can escape from everyday life. I set my blog up 4 years ago and it was basically to try justify my shopping problem at the time, but I am pretty sure it has just gotten worse as the years went on, haha.
What do you love about blogging?
I love that it is such a creative environment and embraces all individuals. I think in the proper blogging industry there is zero stereotypes and I love that.
What do you think about the entire blogging industry in Ireland at the minute?
Honestly, I think it is a bit of a shambles at the minute for the simple fact bloggers are doubting their every move at the moment, almost afraid to continue to love what they are doing but there is also a lot of negativity around the industry at the moment too.
What’s your opinion on Bloggers Unveiled?
I don’t really have an opinion on the whole thing because I honestly don’t think it was a space, the amount of negativity on that page was awful.
Describe your own personal style?
Weird, wacky and a completely unique.
Where do you love to shop?
Anywhere that has clothes, honestly. Favourites are PLT & ASOS online and then Topshop, ZARA & of course Penneys.
Shoes or handbags?
This is honestly so hard for me as I am OBSESSED with both but probably handbags – I do adore a good handbag.
What are some of your favourite fashion trends at the minute?
Clashing prints 10000%.
What is your favourite item in your wardrobe at the minute?
My Balenciaga Trainers – I treated myself to them last month and they were worth every cent. The ugliest shoe in the world but I adore them.
What’s been your biggest fashion faux-pas?
There has been a few at this stage if I am honest, haha but probably wearing one colour too many at one time.
