Dublin, Ireland

I’m head off to Dublin for a Hen weekend from 8th to 10th April, which I’m looking forward to as it will be my first break away this year.  There is about 27 of us heading to Dublin so i think its going to be quite a mad weekend…

I’m hoping to have a little free time as I’m looking at do a few things while I’m there and yes it will include a little bit of shopping.  I’m want to be a tourist and go see the following:

  • Guinness Storehouse
  • Dublin Hop on Hop off Bus Tour – these are a great way to see the city.
  • Christ Church Cathedral
  • Croke Park Stadium Tour

If anyone else have any other suggestions of things to do, places to visit or eat and drink that would be fab.  Also some good shopping haunts???

Hope you are all having a great Monday?

Lots of Love

Pandora

 
I’ve never really been a massive fan of Pandora. Don’t get me wrong it is a nice piece of jewellery and with the charm bracelets can be quite sentimental or have meaning to that individual person, but they are not for me.  Well that is up until recently, I had noticed that a lot of my friends have the birthstone rings which are quite popular and I will have to admit are quite pretty, and not too much in your face.
My friend Cheryl, who I went to New York with brought one in December and it was lovely so I have a little flick through the little brochure they have.  Looking at my birthstone ring it is a a blue (September) well looks like a dark blue but when I actually went into our Pandora shop in Peterborough the blue was a bit brighter and after about 25 mins debating whether I liked the coloured not or which finger to wear it on, I decided not to go for my birthstone as I wasn’t feeling it.  The shop assistant then said you don’t have to go for your birthstone colour you can have what ever you like.  I then spotted the grey colour, which is for the month of June, I tried it on and straight away I fell in love with it.. 

   
   
I then tried on the Heart Band ring to wear with the grey birthstone ring, I was like ohhh how lovely do these look together!!! So that was it done deal £75 later and 2 rings brought from Pandora in 30mins… Easy as that!  As you can see I decided to wear them on my ring finger on my right hand. I have spotted another Pandora ring which I want for my thumb on the right hand, it’s the same style as the band on the birthstone ring.

 

Hope you are all having a great weekend? It’s been a weekend of work for me…😔

Lots of Love

New Nails

I’m sat here on a Thursday afternoon & a little bored so I thought I’d paint my nails.. I’m loving neutral & grey nail colours at the min, so after rummaging in my stash of nail varnishes I went for neutrals. Here are the colours:

Mint in Latte / Ted Baker (not sure on the colour names – part of a set) Ted Baker Nail Varnish Set – Stunning. And here is what they look like 💅🏼

FRA London

1369This blog post is very late!  I visited back in November 2014, I went to one of there open days to have a look at what short courses they offered which I had previously looked at in there prospectus.  The twos courses which interested me was 3 day course on PR & Marketing and Visual Merchandising, the courses cost around £350ish.

I do still really want to do these courses, but I’m swaying more towards the PR & Marketing but i need to save the money first before I do anything.  I had a little wander round the college and it looks really inviting and like a good place to study.  I currently have a Sunday job at New Look, I’d like to progress within the fashion industry so I thought if i did a short course this could possibly boost my possibility of getting the next step in the fashion industry.

Lots of Love

Zara

I went for a cheeky little wander round Sloane Square Chelsea, just too see what was on offer shops wise.   I spotted a Zara and popped in, I had a little snoop round the home department as I didn’t know they did home.  I wasn’t really looking for anything in particular so it was just a browse, again i headed to the sale section nothing really jumped out at me, I had a good rummage and found this little find, a candle with a lace trim round the glass this was on Sale at £2.99 which I didn’t think was to bad as I wouldn’t spend £9.99 full price, I would of liked two the same but this was the only one they had. You could achieve this your self, as it looks quite easy to complete.


While I was queuing to pay for the candle I spotted these small baskets.  They would be great for a storage solution, I picked up two sale price of £4.99 but when I got to the till point they scanned at £2.99, wish i now picked up 2 more!!

As I started to head out the shop, I had to walk through the ladies clothing department where I caught eye of a pair of black heeled boots.  I just picked up a size 6 and headed to the till, and #shock they were on sale, priced at £19.99…


  
The boots were another impulse buy but an over all good shopping trip at Zara..

Happy Reading peeps

Lots of Love
