Birthday-licious - It's birthday central here in Limerick right now. Loving it... what a great reason to get all dressed up, head out, have cake and cocktails, dance the night away and recover over brunch the next morning. The birthdays have been a little on the young side though with a plethora of 21st's, what a way to make a girl feel old! Nothing that a sassy dress, some gorgeous heels, a hand full of jelly sweets and a little glitter can't cure though. As the girls here say... you're only as old as the boy you kiss!
Appropriately Warm - The past few weeks have been unseasonably changeable here in Ireland with temperatures stretching from freezing to the 20's, highly unusual for March. To bridge the sudden gap in my wardrobe I fell to pairing my usual skirt and tights combo with lovely big, open knit jumpers. Warm enough in the chilly morning air, light enough to brave the cloudless skies at lunchtime and perfect for heading home in the dwindling light in the evenings.
Power Perfume - I decided today to treat myself to a new scent. Perfume is such an intimate thing for me to buy. I'm incredibly aware that I only want someone to be able to smell it when they are closer to me than any regular person should be, and I want my perfume to smell womanly but not girly. No bursts of sweetness or floral tones for me. I finally decided on a bottle of Fan di Fendi - warm, subtle, to me it smells of closeness. I'll keep you updated as to how it wears when on.
