Life: Ireland


Hello! How have ya been? I got back from Donegal, Ireland yesterday and I'm missing it already. I miss how chill it is. I miss the beaches (way more beautiful than those tropical ones plus they're nearly always empty so you kind of get your own private beach!) I miss the cows. I miss the GREEN. I miss the not understanding a bloody word anyone says. I miss eating every half hour. I miss smiling at total randomers on the street. Most of all I miss my grandparents (who were very happily surprised to see me, luckily I didn't give them a nasty shock.) Tell you what I don't miss though. THE MIDGES. Eaten alive I was. I even got bitten on the antihelix on my ear (totally Googled that) and there ain't even anything tasty there to bite. If I was a midge I would go for something juicy like my thighs, but NO some dumb one bit my ear and now it's almost double the size of my other one. Awkward times.

I waaaay overpacked and of course only wore basically the same thing every day:


Oh, and this happened at the airport...


More on that tomorrow! Can anyone guess what I bought? First things first though, back to work for me today. Wish me luck avoiding the Zara sale...I have a Zara to my left, a Zara to my right and a Zara right in front of me where I work so it is gonna take a HELLA lot of willpower.

  5. So many pretty snaps! My grandparents are Irish (over here now) but I've never been for a visit! I have the most irish name on the planet so I need to get there STAT and learn about my heritage or something. A-hem. As for the Mulbs = JEALOUS whatever it is!

  23. Ireland looks amazing! I've never been! I'm so ignorant to places, I only get inspired to visit places when someone else posts pictures! Love your outfit variations Josie - so Parisian chic! Excited to see what you bought at Mulberry - my guess is a purse or a clutch bag?! I successfully purchased the sandals I wanted at midnight when the Zara sale went on, without adding a single other item to my basket - good luck to you being right by all those Zara temptations though - it's much harder in store than online to resist xxx p.s. I have 4 sisters of varying ages and we are all told we look alike!

  24. Tell me about it... by the sounds of it, I must work really near to you! I'm surrounded by Zaras on Oxford Street. Although the one near HMV seems be closed and having renovation work done at the moment... bah! x x

  25. The beach looks amazing! And so glad to hear you had a great time and that your grandparents were happy to see you (hahaha). And I'm very curious after what's in the bag! Mulberry makes a ton of great stuff and I really want to know what you got
