There’s a lot to be loving at the minute, our top five is looking a little like this right now…
1. Cheesecake Dublin
Located on South William St, Cheesecake has converted me from having ‘take it or leave it’ feelings over cheesecake to waking up in cold sweats at 4am craving it! From Oreo cookie to white chocolate & raspberry these guys know their cheesecake. Do your sweet tooth a favour by paying a visit to this beautifully styled little retro gem and try EVERYTHING. You’ll thank us that you did.
2. Topshop Spring Collection
I find myself back in love with Topshop as they roll out more beautiful pastels throughout their Spring collection. I’m particularly obsessed with their underwear range right now (is it just me or is there nowhere decent in Dublin to buy nice underwear- something in between pvc and Bridget Jones would be nice!!) So to brighten up a bad case of the Monday blues this week, I ordered these lovelies….
I’ve always been a fan of local farmers market and love the idea of buying fresh local, organic produce. It’s worth the effort to know you’re not pumping a side of hormones into you with your cheeseburger, and apart from the health benefits it’s always a plus to support small local Irish business. Now that Spring is here and the threat of sunshine looms, I’m dedicating my Saturday mornings to stuffing my face at Marlay Park Farmers Market– well worth checking out.
4. Orly Nail Polish in Country Club
Every now and then when himself is picking up dinner and I get a ‘what do we need’ phone call, I respond with ‘milk, kitchen roll and a surprise please’. Usually my surprise is in the form of a glossy mag or slab of chocolate (both equally acceptable) and a couple of weeks back he came good with an issue of Cosmo complete with this little Orly nail polish FGWP. I’m a big fan of nude/mink polishes and am so impressed with this one. The colour is perfect, especially good for work and it just lasts and lasts- even when I neglect a topcoat. Great stuff! (below pic is two days in btw- minimal chipping)
This baby made its way onto my dressing table on Valentine’s Day and I adore it. Always a fan of Max Benjamin candles- I actually regularly stop when passing it and just inhale the scent (that’s normal right?!). Max Benjamin Fragrance for Her is a combination of Mandarin, Bergamot blend, Jasmine and Lily with base notes of Vetyvert- it’s amazing. There’s something very high-end boutique about the glossy purple glass finish that I LOVE, even without lighting it, it looks so pretty on my dresser.
