I've been dying to try brunch at Juniors for some time but with every attempt I was met with failure, always being pipped to the last table. Fortunately, today was my lucky day and we walked in and grabbed the perfect table in their little heated conservatory by the window. Jackpot!

Every time I walk into Space NK I can't help walking out with a little something. I love they whole shopping experience, I never feel pressure and the sales assistants let you ponder and peruse as you please and of course are more then happy to help if you need it. Needless to say I never leave empty handed.
On this occasion, I was lucky enough to be armed with a gift voucher I had received as a birthday present from work colleague and was determined to spend the lot. It was a pretty tricky decision but boy, do I love what I got...

I've been wanting to try Wanderlust since it opened in the beautiful village of Dalkey earlier this year. As I don't live close by, I had to beg and plead my bf to take me in exchange for a big breakfast and of course this worked.
We went on an early on a Sunday morning and the restaurant was nice and quiet, it was nice to be able to walk in and grab a table without a reservation.

I know it is a total cliche, but there is nothing more I love then wearing a berry lip come Autumn/Winter time. The rest of the year you'd be lucky to see me wearing lip balm but as temperatures drop and days are shortened I can't help but reach for a bolder lip to compliment my wardrobe of chunky knits, cosy jackets and blanket scarves, for me it just completes my look. Here are my top four berry shades that will see me through the coming months.

This morning, I finally visited Fia, which I had been dying to try out ever since they opened their doors back in March, thanks to their instagram account. I arrived just after 10am, when doors opened, and the place was already brimming. Luckily, I managed to grab the last table in the corner and I settled down to admire the decor and peruse their menu.

After weeks of deliberation and chopping and changing I have finally booked a trip to New York in 4 weeks time! This will be the third time visiting the Big Apple and I think it has the potential to be one of the best. Don't get me wrong, my last two visits were incredible and I was able to experience what New York is like in Summer and at Christmas and visit all the major attractions but this time I hope to take a more relaxed pace and really enjoy what New York has to offer. As I mentioned in a previous post here this will be a solo trip and I can't wait to be a little selfish and take time for me.

There's nothing more I enjoy then sitting in a café, whiling away an afternoon, people watching or catching up with a friends. As I don't drink, coffee is definitely my beverage of choice and one I guiltily indulge in, maybe a little too often. That being said, I would have not discovered these spots without my LOVE for coffee.

Autumn is well and truly here, and this can only mean shortened days, temperatures drop and the layers come out. This has to be my favourite season, to me there is nothing better then going for a walk on a crisp Autumn's day while the sun shining and I'm all bundled up. However, the changing weather can wreak havoc on our skin and that means prepping our skin ahead of the colder months.
From my own experiences my skin becomes extremely dehydrated, dry and dull in appearance and I love nothing more then slathering body lotion post shower or bathing. Luckily, for birthdays and Christmas' I've been gifted some luxury body lotions and I thought I would give my honest opinion whether I would repurchase again.
