A short and sweet post for today as I’m heading off to Spain for some adventures in the sun. I’m beyond excited for this trip as a well deserved break is needed! I love when you first get off the plane and the heat hits you in the face. Plenty of sun, sea and sangria will be the main theme on my Instagram for the week. I’m hoping to fit in a little shopping while I’m there and indulge in a few road trips so stay tuned!
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.
The past few days have been crazy busy as I was in my beloved Kerry for my nephew’s Christening. We were all down for a couple of days and for the most part I was unfortunately sick. It’s just my luck as I didn’t get to enjoy nights out, all I wanted to do was sleep it off. The Christening day however was such a lovely celebration. I’m his Godmother and I was so excited to be a part of his big day. He was so adorable dressed in his little outfit and he was lapping up all of the attention. I can’t wait to see him next week in Spain in his little swimwear and splashing in the pool.
If you’re a long term subscriber to my blog then I’m sure you’re all familiar with my trips to County Kerry. I spent many years of my childhood in the South of Ireland and it’s without a doubt my happy place. I love the rush of memories I get of my family and I spending our summers in the sunshine, at the beach and exploring. It holds a very precious place in my heart and I still take regular trips down to see my family. Known also as The Kingdom, it truly is with the breathtaking views, iconic beaches and simplistic lifestyle. I never went on my first foreign holiday until I was eighteen (Ibiza probably wasn’t the most sensible of choices!) and that is a part of my life that I treasure. I love that my family were old school and kept the Irish tradition alive by taking us all down South every year, something I hope to continue when I have my own family.
At the start of May I took a much needed trip down to my second home, County Kerry. It’s without a doubt the most peaceful and picturesque part of Ireland to visit. I spent all of my summer holidays there as a child and now I have family living in The Kingdom. The weather was AMAZING and I made the most of it by revisiting my favourite spots around Killarney. There are so many incredible sights to see and Ross Castle was top of my list. The sun was shinning but there was a refreshing cool breeze making my outfit choice simple. I have been OBSESSED with my Oriental inspired bomber jacket, I literally cannot stop wearing it. Not only are the exotic prints a majestic feature but the material is light yet keeps you warm at the same time. I love those kind of clothes and it always reminds me of Irish mummies when they say, “Make sure you bring a light jacket with you. That one cloud in the sky is looking angry”.
