There are some people in your life that know too many secrets, you share too many memories with and you just quite simply have too much fun with to ever let them go. There will be moments where you want to strangle them, times you want to bitch slap them and maybe even times where you actually do…..but we know you do it with love. Gloria, Cristel and Kate here. We just happen to be child hood friends who also happen to be related. We know all the drama that happens with a friendship that long and just how rewarding it can be at the same time. This is a blog about everything because really that’s what your besties are there for to help you get through everything.
These are the people who got you through your first crush who barely knew you existed and that was when you were 5! These are the people who informed you that foundation wasn’t supposed to make you look like a cast member for Charlie and the Chocolate factory, they listened to you moan about your parents and agreed with you that it was completely unreasonable of them to expect you to tell them when you would be gone for half the night. I mean you were practically an adult. They have gotten you through every fashion faux pas and breakup since you were twelve and are still on hand now when you have had a date that has gone incredibly wrong or you when thought that wearing crocks was acceptable in public. They got you through the tough times like when FRIENDS ended or Gossip Girl was revealed (I mean …Really?)
So, the three of us are here to share our memories, lessons learnt, grievances (like how come Joey never found love!) our fashion favorites and all the advice on crazy family members, break ups and sisters who steal your clothes because when you think about it …It’s All Relative.
Gloria is our editor. She is a recent graduate of D.C.U where she studied Communication Studies. She has two other blogs The Girl With the Old Lady Bones and The Ultimate Guide to Chicks. She is also a co host on The Decade Old Podcast. She loves writing whether its fiction or life in general. All of us ladies hail from Clare but Gloria is the eldest of us and now lives in Co.Meath. Her dream job would be working in a magazine or on a Television Set.

Cristel is one of three writers here at It’s All Relative. She too hails from Clare but is now living in Limerick City. She has a background in fashion and is a wiz with a sewing machine, however she has a full time job in childcare which she loves! Cristel is our fashion expert and her real love (and weakness) is shoes!

She is the only one of us girls who still lives in Clare and shes also the only natural blonde!
