Eclectic. No, Monday's outfit was more minimal. Monochrome? But you've 10 rainbow shirts hanging nicely in your wardrobe.

I applaud anyone that has the ability to answer this question, really I do. I, on the other hand, am not one of them. In fact I even find it difficult to describe my personal style in three words, or even five.

September is always one of the busiest months for me- not only because it means going back to college, but because of the numerous press events too. September is famously known as the start of the new fashion year and the Irish fashion industry celebrates that with Dublin Fashion Festival. Hosted by Dublin Town, DFF is a festival that I've been attending for about 3 years now and it's always an Autumn highlight for me. The festival launch occurred a few weeks ago (which I wrote about for Siopaella here) but the actual festival runs from September 5th-11th. Here's my top picks from this year's schedule- all open to the general public for free!

1.  First day off of the month led to a rare family outing to the seaside. And it wouldn't be a seaside visit without candy floss the size of your head!
2. I then travelled to my nana's house, who also happens to live beside the beach. It was so nice to catch up with her and extended family, while also getting another chance to take in the coastal air.
3. I finally got around to getting the chop- again! I've come to the realisation that I feel more "me" with short hair, and I went back to being darker this time too. Loving it!
4. The newly refurbished Gourmet Burger Kitchen in Temple Bar kindly invited us in work to a meal and to check out the new restaurant. Delicious as always, and the decor is so modern.

This post has been a long time coming. Over 6 months coming, to be precise. A combination of a loss for words, lack of time and a dodgy laptop has prevented me writing it in the past, but I feel it's time to address some things here on Oh Hey There Rachel.

You may have noticed that I've been fairly quiet on the blogging front for about a year now. I put it down to starting college and becoming employed but there has definitely been some other factors too. Even on social media, I'd stopped participating in blogger chats and my Instagram became more personal than blogging related. The only easy way to explain it all is that I fell out of love with blogging.
