Sunny Sunday!

This weekend we had some fabulous weather in Ireland! We decided to head to the beach to enjoy the beautiful sunshine. My sister bought a new car this week so we decided to take it out for a spin. We packed a picnic and headed off!

We drove out to Greystones Harbour in Co. Wicklow. we enjoyed our food, walked on the beach and took some nice photos.

I hope the nice weather sticks around!

Friday Feeling!

Looking forward to this weekend, spending the weekend with all the girls!

Eight of us girlies are heading to the cinema on Friday to see the Hunger Games! A few of us have read the books, I read the books last year, so i have forgotten a good bit, but I hear the movie is great.

Saturday Im going to try out a Zumba class in the gym with Hayley. Zumba is a Latin inspired dance class. It is supposed to help you burn calories fast while also dancing around making a complete fool of yourself!:D Should be interesting!

Saturday night a few of us are heading to a friend’s going away party, all in all it looks to be a great weekend!

Whatever you're doing I hope it’s fun-filled!! xxx

Gym and Mini Marathon!

My friend Hayley and I decided to join the gym last month, we both felt we were carrying a little extra holiday weight! We joined a gym near work so it would be harder for us to avoid going! We've been doing reasonably well, managing to work out about 4 times a week!

My sister came up with the idea that a few of us might like to run the Flora Women’s Mini Marathon this year. The Flora Women's Mini Marathon is the biggest all women's event of its kind in the world. It is held in Dublin City Centre every year since its beginnings in 1983!

So a few of us have now signed up for the event. We’ll have to get really into our training now, we want to be fit as fiddles for our big run!

Signed up for the marathon:

Tuesday, 13 March 2012


I had heard a lot about this product and decided to splash out and buy it for myself this christmas. I have to say it is an amazing product. There is so many advantages to using shellac rather then normal polish, It lasts for 2 weeks, has absolutely no dry time and has a beautiful shiny finish.

There is numerous colours to choose from, I only have 8 at the moment, hopefully il get some more soon! you can layer the products to create new unique colours too, which is fantastic!

Swatches of colours i have so far:



French Manicure with Cream Puff

Rock Royalty

Happy Birthday Hayley!

My lovely friend Hayley is 26 today! I hope she really enjoys her day and her weekend away! Hope Kill and Noah are good to you!

Happy Birthday!! xxx

Happy Birthday Dad!

Yesterday was my Dad's 51st Birthday! He's had a tough year with being sick last April, so we were all thrilled to be celebrating him being happy, healthy and 51st this year.

We had a lovely homemade shephards pie for dins, then we made some pancakes for dessert, it was a bit of a disaster without my mom there to help us! We burnt a few and half fried some others but it was all good fun!

Sarah and I got him a new tree for the garden with bird seeding for the birdies! I hope he liked it.

We also had some cake and sang him Happy Birthday! I hope he really enjoyed his day, we're all heading to TGI's (his fav restaurant) on Friday night for more Celebrations!

Love you Dad!
Happy Birthday!

Day trip to Powerscourt House

On Sunday my sister Sarah, and i took a trip to Powerscourt House & Gradens, Enniskerry. It was a beautiful sunny day! Although it was a bit cold, we made sure to wrap up nice and warm so we could take our time walking around the gardens, it really was beautiful!

After our walk, we had Lunch in the Avoca tearooms in Powerscourt House, they have the most amazing food.
We walked off a bit of lunch strolling around the shops and brought home some Avoca treats for Sunday afternoon.

We also took a quick peek into the Ritz on the way in, the Hotel looks amazing!

All in all, it was a fantastic Sunny Sunday!
