I had a beautiful weekend along the Antrim coast with a friend, have taken a few roadtrips with my boyfriend over the last 2 weeks and have been generally relaxing.
About an hour after sunset in Cushendall
Nailpolish is Models Own Blue Boo - loving the colour for summer but hating the gloopy texture and the fact it needs 3 coats.
Ok, so it wasn't quite California, but I tried to 'rehydrate naturally' at the beach with Vita Coco coconut water. I picked it up in a healthfood store unaware that it is apparently the new celebrtiy fad diet drink of the minute (see Rihanna's man down music video!) I wish I liked it more, but it's quite bitter and a bit thick. I mixed it with pineapple juice and I diluted it with water, made it much more paletable and hopefully I still got the benefits!
Finally, I was in Mayo for a short trip and wish I could go back and enjoy all this beautiful sunshine there so much. Staggeringly beautiful countryside everywhere you look! We took a little jaunt over to Achill where this picture is taken, but stayed near Blacksod where my family is from, about as west of Ireland as you can get and beautiful dramatic landscapes.
Straightforward wee outfit - midi skirt was bought in the Urban Outfitter's sale, hopefully think of some interesting ways to wear it!
Watermelon and green tea with lemon felt like the breakfast of kings! I have eaten such beautiful foods this week: coconut icecream from Morellis, chili made in good company, my mum's caesar salad...I could go on.
Good weather and good food means I don't feel the lack of a holiday abroad right now.
So from sunsets to moonrises, I hope everyone is having a happy and healthy summertime at home or abroad. I have lots of beauty buys I want to blog about next week, I think I'll be having to tighten the purse strings for the next few weeks :)
