What happened in my 2nd year of Blogging

Two years have passed since I decided to throw my love for fashion and travel online. Since then I have seen my brand grow more than I had ever believed. I sat down a few days ago and I looked at my journal from last year and my one from this year to see what CiaraSwalsh has done since my last 'blogiversary'.

How To Apply For A Russian Visa

Applying for a Russian Visa was probably the most stressful part of organising our trip to St. Petersburg. Why? 1. Because there was next to no information online except from the consular website of the Russian Embassy which was quite hard to navigate and understand and 2. Davide didn't get his passport until a week before leaving so it was a massive rush, so if you plan on applying for a Russian Visa, follow these exact steps and you'll have no problems! And if you need tips on places to see check out my St. Petersburg Guide and Vlog.

St. Petersburg, Russia Travel Guide and Vlog

We booked our trip to St. Petersburg, Russia back in November. Something I believe is a once in a lifetime opportunity so we saved every penny we had and made this dream become a reality. 

Before the trip we made sure we were prepared, I checked the weather daily and it seemed pretty cold everyday, however, when we arrived i don't think we prepared for just how cold it was..let's just say that all the rivers were frozen!  Check out where we went as well as my St. Petersburg travel vlog linked below.

Could I Be The Next Galway Rose?

Yup you heard correctly, I am in the running to be the next Galway Rose! 
The Rose of Tralee is part of our Irish heritage, we all grew up watching all the beautiful roses from all parts of the world. I remember thinking when I was a child that it would be impossible to be chosen to be a rose and I was in awe of these women!

What They Don't Tell You Before Getting Your Teeth Whitened - The White House Clinic Galway.

Last week I was kindly invited in to test the service The White House Teeth Whitening Clinic had to offer. I was treated to a one hour teeth whitening session where I was told my teeth would definitely be at least 5 shades whiter with zero sensitivity afterwards. I have heard many horror stories of teeth whitening disasters, from cracking teeth, to extreme sensitivity and pain.
