Looks like I'm going to Dublin for a holiday next year. Been wanting to go for a while but have either been too broke or my friends have been too broke/used up all their holiday so we figured this year if we actually plan it in advance & get it all organized rather than leaving it until the last minute we'd have chance to book holiday & save some money. (oh God, plan, organize & save in the same sentence, looks like I'm growing up after all!)
It's also a good place to have a drink, I have to say I do like Guinness but have never managed more than half a pint before mainly because it feels like your carrying a boulder around in your stomach, I much prefer J.D & coke, yum yum!
I just love the look of Dublin, it looks alot of fun & ideal for a girls holiday, it's also home to my favourite band & one of the best bands in the world, U2. My great gran & grandad were Irish & from the Cork/Waterford area (it's her I have to thank/blame for my nearly red hair) so will be nice to have a look around & maybe see the area they lived in.
Here's a picture of Cork;
And the surrounding countryside;
I said I was trying to save money a few days ago, so knowing that why did I go on Ebay.....
Bad, bad, bad! I ended up bidding on & winning these pixie boots, £4.70
And these leopard print pumps, £3.00
I couldn't resist, been wanting shoes similar to both for ages & couldn't get them in 2's so when I saw these I had to have them & considering they're both brand new they were a complete bargain! I'm thinking the pixie boots will look good with my grey skinny jeans, a vintage Rolling Stones t I have, black waistcoat & a black baker/school boy cap I have. For some reason I really suit hats so really, really want to get a trilby hat, preferably in black because I'm loving the mannish trend that's about, pictured below
I also think it would look good with the above mentioned top, waistcoat & jeans but with high heel black boots instead of the pixie ones. I am now officially trilby hunting, oh dear looks like I might have to go on Ebay again.......
All in all not a bad day today, an incident occurred in Starbucks which brightened up my day but I shall save that for another post...... :o)
