About the house...

The weekend...

Lots of food, ice cream and desserts!  Sunday morning out in Dun Laoghaire for a walk on the pier...sunny with a brisk breeze...very refreshing after a late Saturday night!

And, Sunday out at the pier would not be the same without a 99 from Teddy's!

Have a good week :)

All about the print...

So, I am liking the trend for prints this summer but won't be getting too involved as I tend not to follow trends too much and like to buy things that last for a few years.  However, I fell big time for this coat from Cos.  I had been eyeballing it online for a while and then it disappeared (yikes) so when I found one in our local Cos store, I tried it on, loved it and bought it!  It looks great with a crisp white cotton top underneath and would look great with some dark grey jeans, which I can't find anywhere, so will wear with some good, dark jeans and silver / grey / white shoes (that I am hunting for).  The colors are a little bit hard but I love them anyway!  Plan to wear it to my niece's First Communion at end May.

Not sure if this photo does it justice but I promise it's lovely!  Will maybe take a photo with it on me at some point.  Enjoy your day :)

Hot Pink...

Always been a fan of pink but have really noticed that neon pink is everywhere on the web these days!  I bought a neon pink scarf in Zara recently (when it looked like we might finally get some good weather and I was feeling summery and didn't last!).  I also have a hot pink case for my iPhone and yesterday whilst in the local chemist picked up some hot pink nail varnish.  It cheers me up.  I was trying to photograph my hands and they looked hideous so grabbed my mouse to show my nails...still don't look so hot but better than the other shots!  Also, how about these gorgeous note cards by Lisa them so much...might just have to frame one of each.  Have a good day :)

Well, it's been a while.  I just wasn't in the mood to be frank.  I really think that I am only now coming out of a post-Christmas funk.  I couldn't wait for March to be over with and for Spring to begin and I am feeling a bit more upbeat now...thank goodness!  A little more motivated and a little more optimistic too.  A number of nice things are happening...mainly, we have booked a holiday to south of France for two weeks in June...this is very exciting as, apart from a few weekends, we haven't gone overseas for a holiday since 2008 when we went to Colorado!  I am so happy and so excited!  Also, I finally got around to tidying the library/snug (which had become a bit of a dumping ground).  I did a big spring clear out as well and sent eight bags off to the Charity Shop - these are the kind of things that clear my fug and get me in a good groove again!  Some pictures from library/snug below.  Both myself and B are working on our French too which is good :)  Hope you have a good week :)
