Coachella Is Calling..

"One day your life will flash before your eyes, make sure it's worth watching."

I adore festival style (especially Erika Fox's a.k.a Retro flame, she nails it every time) and as Coachella was this weekend I thought it was the perfect opportunity to do a festival inspired look, especially before festival season starts here in Ireland!

So I literally threw this outfit together in two seconds and I know everything is old stock but can easily be re-created with similar pieces from the likes of Missguided, Pretty Little Thing, Penneys etc. I kinda put all the festival go to's together into one outfit (bar denim) such as tassels, faux suede, a hat (of course) and leather.

Coachella is definitely on my bucket list, the bloody thing is growing by the day but I'll get through it, eventually... If I was to go to it, serious outfit planning would be in order and not a two second job like this, but it just goes to show that you can easily russell up something without having to spend a bomb!

I hope this look gives you some sort of inspo for your festival outfits but if not I'll leave Erika's blog link here and there's no doubt that this girl won't make you green with envy with her amazing style!

Afternoon Tea at Scholars Townhouse

"Life is short, Eat dessert first!"

So last week myself, my mam, my nana and my aunties all went for afternoon tea for the first time. It's something I've always wanted to do and it definitely didn't disappoint! 
We're lucky to live so close to many places which you can go to for afternoon tea but one place in particular is quite popular and that's Scholars Townhouse in Drogheda.

Afternoon tea is kinda like a couples package, so like you have to do it in pairs. For regular afternoon tea with either tea or coffee is €59 per couple or you can opt for the prosecco package, which I of course did and that was €65 per couple.

For anyone who doesn't know what Afternoon Tea consists of it's basically little sandwiches, pastries, scones etc with your tea or coffee all presented on fine china. So yeah it can be a bit over priced for what it is but my god we were stuffed to the brim and it was nothing short of delicious.

 Here are some of the cakes, Chocolate Brownie, Apple Crumble, Carrot Cake and Bakewel Tart. 

Everything was so perfect we even got our own little private room to have our Afternoon Tea in. I would 100% recommend trying afternoon tea, like I thought we would be getting cucumber and watercress sandwiches but thankfully we didn't. There was an egg mayo wrap, a ham & cheese sandwich and one fancy one which was homemade brown bread with smoked salmon. So you can be a fussy eater and still find something you like with the selection.

And it was such a nice day out so of course I had to get a snap or two of what I wore...

Pants & Shoes are Penneys
Top is Boohoo
