Afternoon Tea

Last week we celebrated Mother's Day by going out for afternoon tea because my mum has always wanted to do it. I've never had it before so I didn't know what to expect but all the food tasted amazing; you basically get mini sizes of sandwiches, scones and deserts so you can try everything.
We went to a place called the Manor House which is such a beautiful hotel, the architecture is stunning so I loved getting to take loads of pictures!

If you're wondering why the picture quality is a lot better than usual, it's because I got a new camera! I saved up for ages and finally got the Canon Eos 700D because I've wanted it for so long. I'm so glad I got it because the quality is 10x better than my old camera and I find myself reaching for it a lot more than my old one; so expect better pictures in my posts from now on!

St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day! (Sorry I'm a day late). I really like St. Patrick's Day because it's a day when you can celebrate being Irish and everything that comes with it (alcohol for most people) and I love that. In saying that, I never usually do anything too crazy for it but I just like going places that make me happy. I usually go the beach near my caravan in Donegal, but yesterday I thought we'd go to a waterfall that's only a five minute walk from where I live because despite being so close to it, I never actually go so I thought it would be a good day to go because the weather was gorgeous.

 (My top was from Topshop about a year ago but people are selling it on Depop if you're interested)

Hope you had a good St. Patrick's Day and liked these pictures!

Spring/Summer 16 Trends

I always love doing these sorts of blog posts, researching all the looks that were on the runways for Spring and Summer. I fell in love with the collections for this season, so many designers had a feminine spin on their clothing, and I absolutely love it. I usually tend to be drawn to the more out there, futuristic styles but this season I'm obsessed with the more minimalistic, dreamy and pretty styles. Calvin Klein stole the show for me, their pieces for Spring/Summer 2016 were so understated and stunning. There were a lot of trends that were seen in several collections, but I just picked out a few of my favourites and pieces that are very similar for a lot cheaper.

1) Ruffles
This was seen so much for S/S 16 but in different ways but ll had a very feminine shape. This look is really easy to wear as long as you keep the accessories simple.


3) Lingerie
I think this was my favourite trend. The 90's trend is definitely not going anywhere for a while which I am very happy about! The slip dress is huge this season, and while it can be worn dressed up, I think it would look amazing with some slip on trainers and a leather jacket around your shoulders for a more casual take on it.
