Things I Love Thursday


Hello 80's - I've been reminiscing with movies from my childhood lately. Were you a 'Lost Boys' (1987) and 'Heathers' (1988) kinda person, all dark and tortured, too much backcombing and eyeliner or were you 'The Breakfast Club' (1985) and 'Ferris Buellers Day Off' (1986) - troublesome but lovable, denim jacket and scrunched up socks? I was a Ghostbusters, Princess Bride, Indiana Jones, Beetlejuice, Spaceballs, Coming to America kinda girl, just a little bit of everything, and still am. 


Things on Toast - Everything automatically tastes better when you put it on toast. Scrambled eggs, baked beans, melted cheese, grilled bacon, honey and banana, even humble old butter and jam. I remember being a kid and jam sandwiches just seemed mean and tasteless, but jam on toast - warm melting butter, sticky jam, all yummy and comforting. What a great plan!


A Harsh Reality - Being single has it's perks - not having to share that last piece of cake, no one telling you to hurry up when getting ready, the whole bed to yourself, but it has some huge drawbacks too. I miss being touched... get your head out of the gutter now... just the general he walks past you and brushes his hand across your lower back kinda touching, the you're sitting on the couch and he picks up your feet and puts them on his lap kinda touching. I suppose it's really called intimacy, and I miss it. 

Honourable Mentions - surprise visits, spotted teapots and Very Berry herbal tea, up styles, messy buns, smokey eyes and emerald green toe nails, finding any reason to inject glamour into the day - hats at noon, patent shoes and costume jewellery, waking up to two new followers this morning (edging ever closer to 100 - a giveaway is promised), striped jumpers and knee high socks, reading an entire series of books and loving them

Wednesday Wishes


Today I want to wish...

 ...that the Irish team flying out to Turin for the Archery World Championships have an amazing time over the next few weeks.

Train hard, shoot with honour and pride for your country, and bring me back a toblerone from the airport

Terrible Tea Time


I never thought that I would say this but I have lost my taste for tea. For the past three days tea does not taste good to me. The milk is too strong, the temperature is all wrong, it is just all sorts of bad. I live in a house where the days is ruled by 'Is it time for a cup of tea?' so right now I'm in no mans land. 
What do you suggest? Should I persevere until my taste buds right themselves again or should I turn to something else for now?

Things I Love Thursday


Black Tie Baby - This weekend I have my first ever black tie wedding to attend. Awfully excited about it all. I have it narrowed down to two outfits - a strapless black linen and knit, ruched, full length dress or a black halterneck, wide leg jumpsuit. Both have the same shoes, bag and jewellery so I really can wait until the last minute to decide. Oh and I have the most amazing head piece to wear. A friend of my mums custom made it to match my accessories - it is the most amazing piece I have ever seen. I promise to have some photos next week.


Growing Up Time - I had this discussion with some friends over the past few weeks... We are finally adults - up until very recently I have never received an invitation to a whole wedding, with the exception of one friend from my college days in Cork (D & MC, I had a fab day). Now a whole wedding to me means that you have friends who are adult enough to get married hence you are also a grown up to even know them. A few years ago I went to a rash of weddings but they were all connected with Mr T and his friends and family. This year it is my turn. Two months, three weddings, two 'plus one's' and a bridesmaids dress. This might just mean that I'm not a kid anymore.


Summer Season - Two words 'True blood', back on our screens for season 4 in just a few short days. Can't wait.

Honourable Mentions - sand between my toes, and in my shoes, and in the car, windswept hair, strawberry syrup on my 99, unexpected messages late at night, using crystal hi-ball glasses as pen holders, turquoise sweat pants and learning to enjoy running, persuading my little dog that running is good for him too, glitter nail polish, almond and coconut scones, Zumba

Much Love Monday

 Winning the David Clarke Cup on Saturday. That Cup is looking particularly fantastic on my dresser and putting 100 points on to my Personal Best wasn't too shabby either. 


Now back to work.

I love Cole. I love her family, her passion and most of all I loved her hair before she cut it all off. Made incredibly famous by her husbands maternity photo series shot for Pacing the Panic Room.

Fashion Question


I really want a zip-top, over-sized clutch but I don't want to pay American Apparel prices for it. Does anyone know of somewhere I could get me one of these at a more reasonable price?

Conflict


We all know that text and sarcasm don't mix well. Not at all. In fact most humours and text don't mix well, and to be perfectly honest your text is only as good as the mood that the person your are texting is in. If they are happy, they read happy, if they are sad, they read sad, if they are angry, you're in trouble.

Consider yourself warned.
