Happy Monday everyone!
To all statesiders, I hope you enjoyed the Oscars. To everyone else, I'm trying to avoid hearing who won until RTE repeats the ceremony at the more sociable hour of 9pm for us tonight. I'm pretty sure the winners are no big surprise but we all know it's all about the dresses! Seriously, I can't wait to see the dresses and makeup.
Today's post is a little ode to the fact that this weekend, Spring seemed to have sprung..and here is how I enjoyed it.
Friday: a walk in Belfast's Botanic Gardens to photograph the shoots of crocuses and snowdrops I saw on Monday. But by Friday, they were opened up into full bloom and the park was filled with them. Absolutely beautiful colours that lifted my mood no end.
|What a beautiful carpet of flowers!|
My mum bought me this little handbag size bottle of it last Summer and it has lasted so well. It is based around the scent of a strawberry but it isn't as sickly as it sounds. I'm not exactly a great follower of the celebrity fragrance trend and I probably shouldn't like this as I know 12 year old girls would probably adore it as well but I can't help it...it's just fun and reminds me of last Summer now, I love how perfumes can hold memories like that.
