Last weekend I spent a few days in my beloved Kerry for the christening of my handsome nephew and Godson. It was a great day celebrating my little rascal and he was so adorable in his gorgeous christening outfit. We were all dressed in our Sunday best for the big day and I wanted to share my look with all of you today. As I was Godmother I wanted to make an extra special effort for my little chipmunk. You couldn’t half spot the city girls with me and my two nieces, no shortage of makeup there! Haha.
Can you tell I’m obsessed with this house and the pretty floral backdrop?! If I could build my dream home, this would be it. I’m a sucker for beautiful houses, incredible interior and vibrant gardens. I’m down in Kerry at the moment and I couldn’t resist shooting here. The weather hasn’t been too bad, it’s quite warm so I opted for something light with a lot of movement and a little drama. The netural tones are firm favourites for this typical Irish weather (we can get four seasons in one day) and I loved the combination of details. I was actually ill when I was shooting this and it was a disaster trying to look and smile for the camera. My eyes were watering so bad and I felt horrendous so if I look drunk in any of the photos you’ll know what the craic is!
Summer consists mainly of two things for me – cocktails and more cocktails. I’ve been on some what of a kick and the glorious sunshine we’ve been enjoying doesn’t help! The mind blowing and decadent ‘Lagaritas’ at hotspot, The Perch, left an almighty feeling with me the next day! That’s what Summer is all about isn’t it?! Between socialising and sunbathing this past few week’s have been quite enjoyable! I head off to Spain in three week’s for a well deserved break and I’m in dire need of new swimwear and it’s safe to say I have left it a little late. If any of you can recommend any pretty one pieces or bikinis please let me know, I’m desperate.
I can still remember the first encounter I had with luxury jewellery brand, Pandora. We were just coming into the Summer month’s when I was invited to brunch for a private viewing of their Rose Gold collection. Fast forward two years and I’m still head over heals in love with the pieces now as I was then. My Pandora collection is growing by the day and I’m excited to welcome this majestic ‘Hearts of Pandora’ necklace to the family. I have a love for hollow circle jewellery and this little beauty is one of a kind. It features a detailed print of the Pandora logo on the back which can be worn as a second option. I often wear it as a stand alone piece or mix it with various necklaces that I have. For today I decided to keep all jewellery dedicated to Pandora in order to share the entire collection with all of you.
I’m kick starting this week on such a high! I feel extremely humble to have received such heartwarming responses after my Chronic Anxiety post. I never in a million years thought I would have had so many incredible people contact me so I just want to say thank you. I’ve also got my little chipmunk (my nephew) visiting for the week so I’m absolutely thrilled. He has such an adorable personality and he’s getting bigger by the day. I’m waiting for him to waken up so we can watch Miffy and get some cuddles.
During the week I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of a very special delivery. I treated myself to my first ever Self Portrait piece. I’ve always adored the brand as cutwork styles are my favourite. I just think they add such a unique edge to a look and the quality is excellent. I have shared a sneak preview but in the coming week’s I’ll share the entire look in a feature.
