Just a little introduction

My name is Andraya (But Tiggy is okay too I guess). I’m a full time student, fashion enthusiast & I sing occasionally. I’ve created this blog to share my love for Travel, Fashion and Music, and I’m sure I’ll share some daft stories along the way. So without further ado, sit back, grab a wee cupán tae, and enjoy the content I bring to you.

I will be posting as frequently as possible, keep up to date on instagram: @AndrayaTighe for regular updates!

Halloween Decorating at Home

I’m a massive Halloween fan, in case you haven’t noticed. I’m all for turning your home into a haunted house. My parents were massive advocates for Halloween when I was younger and always hosted the most incredible Halloween parties. Although we were young, they sure knew how to scare us.

Mental Health Awareness: Look after YOU

As it’s Mental Health Awareness week in Ireland, I’ve decided to write an important piece amongst my light, fun October posts. I truly hope what I say impacts each one of you positively. Some would say that your physical health is vital, it should be looked after. I disagree, I believe that your mental health…

Coronation Chicken: Recipe

There’s nothing I enjoy more than cosy food during Autumn in preparation for Winter. I’m prone to catching colds, so building my immune system during September and October is a must. That being said, it’s easy to get fed up of vegetable soup and Irish Stews. A dish I’ve grown fond of with plenty of…

Sleep Remedies for Anxiety Sufferers

As an Anxiety sufferer, I’m frequently troubled by falling asleep. I’ve tried the wildest remedies over the last number of years to get to sleep. I’ve gone beyond reach and have even tried drinking a glass of whiskey before bed before exams to knock me out (which does not work unless you are unwell). I…

Farmhouse Brown Bread: Recipe
