How I spent V-Day

Hey Guys,

I hope you’re all having a lovely Sunday. The sun is shining here so it’s always easier to have a smile on your face when it’s not raining! Yesterday was Valentine’s Day as I’m sure you’re all more than aware. As I said in Friday’s post, I’m not a huge fan of February 14th, but uncharacteristically, I actually had a nice day. Not a cliché in sight.

The day kicked off with a mini mother – daughter pampering day. I posted the picture below on Facebook yesterday and I received some messages asking about my watch.

IMG_0989The watch is from Guess and I bought it in Macy’s in New York. There are similar ones available however in jewellers such as Fields. My hands look so small minus my gel nails, but I wanted to give my nails a break so as not to cause too much damage. As I said yesterday check out The Makeup Box in Naas, I will definitely be going back, great service and prices.

What I Wore

Cape €20.00 TK Maxx, Black turtle neck €6.00 Penneys / Primark

My over the knee boots are from Newlook, I bought them last September and I have gotten so much wear out of them. H&M and River Island have some similar alternatives in store.

I kept everything else quite muted and stuck with black as I felt the cape was enough. It was such a bargain and it’s so soft and cosy. I felt like I had a blanket wrapped around me in the cinema. I think we were the only couple in the cinema last night who didn’t go see 50 Shades of Grey! We also avoided the ‘fancy restaurant’  and opted for Nando’s as I am a huge fan!

I hope you all had a nice V-Day whether it was spent in the traditional sense or whether you were boycotting the entire ‘holiday’ for want of a better description.

Sunday’s Casual Attire

Hey Guys,

I can’t believe it’s Monday already, where did that weekend go? As I said in my last post, I stayed at home Friday and Saturday due to illness, but Sunday I decided to venture outside. As I was going for dinner, I wanted something comfortable but that still looked remotely decent.

It was of course freezing outside, so I wrapped up in my River Island leather jacket minus the fur (I still love that it is detachable!) My boyfriend also laughed quite a substantial amount at my hat but I still maintain that I love it 🙂

It was lovely to get out of the house and feel normal again for the day. We ended up staying in the place longer than we had originally planned; just eating, drinking and chatting. I don’t think we had planned to eat quite so much food, but we ended up going for the full three courses. I didn’t get a picture of dessert. It didn’t last very long!

I love days like this, they are what Sundays are all about!

I am back on healthy eating today guys and will be doing a post on it this week, so stay tuned. I hope you all had a great weekend 🙂

See the Good

 

Be the Change you wish to see in the World

-Ghandi

Hey Guys,

Today I wanted to share three videos with you that really made me smile. I’m sick today and am admittedly quite a bad patient so the fact these videos managed to make me smile, I figured they have to be good.

There seems to be nothing but negative news at the moment and it’s easy to see why people are losing faith in humanity. There’s no denying that there are plenty of bad things going on in the world, but there are also great things happening everyday.

No matter how big or small, I think it is important to try and focus on the positive things that happen around us everyday. Don’t feel that your acts of kindness are being over shadowed because I can guarantee they make a difference to someone.

And finally, I know it’s everywhere but if anyone else out there needs cheering up like I did, then watch it as many times as you need. The cuteness does not fade!

I hope you all had a great weekend and are enjoying your Sunday evening. It’s the first day of Spring so make sure to kick some ass this week 🙂

Until Next Time My Loves
