Fáilte (Welcome)

Bonjour, Aloha and Ciao.

Don’t worry, even I cringed at that.


Anyway, welcome to my blog, Freckles and Thoughts. As the name suggests, I have freckles, boy do I have freckles, I’m basically a walking ‘connect the dots’ game. And, I have thoughts- imagine that!

I’ve wanted to write a blog for some time now, but never really had the confidence or knew what to write about. I always thought, “What if I run out of things to say?” Then I realised a) as my good man Drake taught me, life’s too short to sit about and play it safe; and b) I could talk to a brick wall so will most likely never run out of things to say.

I started off writing posts for my university’s PR Student Blog, but after some really positive feedback and advice, finally got the courage to start my own. That, and a ‘eureka’ moment in which I ~finally~ came up with a name (Niamh’s Blog didn’t quite cut it, you see).

I write about LOADS of different things, because it’s important not to limit yourself (I also take notions and have a lot of thoughts and opinions on very random topics). I’m not sure if it’s come across so far but I generally don’t really consider myself a very serious person, so I try to let my style reflect that- after all, if you’re not going to read the terms and conditions for literally anything ever, why would you listen to me monotonously rambling on?

Well, I hope you enjoy reading what I have to say, and please please feel free to leave any comments or feedback because even if you don’t have freckles, I’m pretty sure you do have thoughts, too!
