Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry...

Spotted this little ensemble on Asos (I think)...really like the shirt and the cropped trousers. Not completely crazy about the rest of the collection but can appreciate it!

Link to the collection here.

Beautiful Danish Ceramics....

So, I just recently discovered Anne Black ceramics...delicate, fine, fragile..there are so many pieces I love. I found the site whilst searching for handles and hooks then got carried away with all the lovely vases, bowls, jewellery...find her site here and enjoy a good old browse! Below are a few of my favourite things...

I really need to work out how to make those little photo collage thingmajiggies...these photos would look much better presented that way...anyway, have a look at the website and you can enjoy better views!

Isn't the new stationery line from Kikki K adorable? Love the colours and designs...reminds me a little of Sanna Annuka's work.

Strongly considering...

...this dress...I absolutely love it! Either with wedges or plain white or navy canvas converse-y / ben simon-y type shoes! Boutique by Jaeger.

Update: Scored the dress above for 20% off and free shipping with ASOS!!! Am returning the dress below to Cos tomorrow (which I bought last weekend). It's really cool but I much prefer the Jaeger dress and I will get more wear out of it!

Update 2: Got the dress, wasn't half as nice as it looked in pictures and the skirt was really stiff...I looked like a complete plonker in it so sent it back and got a refund..what was I thinking anyway..I am BROKE!!

In my bag...

I always get a kick out of these posts on other blogs so when I emptied my bag at work today I thought I would take a snap - I got rid of the scrunched up receipts and random bits of paper but otherwise this is it....

- Orla Kiely bag
- eye drops
- Orla Kiely Wallet
- Splenda sweetners
- tiny Moleskine notebooks
- my book (The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery)
- Toast Small Book (with 10% off everything inside!)
- Blistex
- Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector
- Chanel Teint Innocence Compact Creme Universel
- Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Colour in Pale Mauve
- Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise Cologne 30ml
- Orla Kiely i-Phone holder
- iPod Nano
- pouch from Coco Sunday's Etsy store
- my favourite pen from Muji (a pencil and 5 coloured inks all in one)

Missing, tho always in my bag, is my Moleskine Weekly Notebook.

That's it! I am winding down now..tomorrow is my last day at work for this week as we have Thursday off for Paddy's Day and I have taken Friday off too...hurray! Have made plans for Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights...good food and good company all part of the plan so really looking forward to that!

Hope you are enjoying your week :)

Sweet Paul...

Sweet Paul's latest magazine is out there..beautiful...I loved his last one and now I think I would like to order the printed to both digital and printed version's devoted to kids this time and even if you don't have any it's still fun (and there is a little section for woofers!). I liked his "Easter" ideas and thought these pompom projects were cute...

And a simple little idea for Easter eggs..

Under the woofer chapter, this little treat case (or pencil case) caught my eye! You can find it here.

Sweet Paul is great...I am in awe of all these folk producing these beautiful magazines for us to!!

On Sunday we zipped out to Dalkey (about 25 mins from city centre)'s one of my favourite spots in Dublin. A beautiful seaside, higgeldy piggeldy village, that sits high above the sea with amazing views of Dublin Bay. The most beautiful homes in Dublin (in my opinion) are out this neck of the woods...someday I would love to live there! I will take more photos next time to share with you (I forgot my camera - the photos below were taken with my iPhone). My aunt lived in Dalkey before she died last year and we used to visit a lot when we were kids so it has always been a favourite place.

It was a beautiful day...these are photos looking over and down onto Killiney beach...maybe I'll get to spend some days here if we have a good summer...fingers crossed..we can't have FOUR years of terrible summers, right??

The beach is a long way down a path and lots of steps...the woofers were pooped when we got back!

Tuesday now and another stunning, bright and sunny day...though frosty! Have a great week :)
