Finally its starting to feel like spring... not warm enough for bare legs and chiffon skirts but a glimmer of sunshine means I can dust off my peach pastel coat, & hopefully soon my pink & baby blue fluffy knits & mint coloured brogues. I was just about warm enough wearing this for a day of shopping & running errands only my toes were frozen.
Coat: H&M, Top: H&M, Jeans: Topshop, Watch: Swatch, Heels: Limited Edition.

Above: Shot of Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, Mocha from KC Peaches Dublin best coffee ever!
Most amazing sweet shop ever in Mullingar, Cocktail making class: drinking a mojito dressed up for the great gatsby 1920's night at my hen.
As I mentioned the last few weeks Ive been back and forward to Dublin for work, and away on my hen weekend in Mullingar... Here is a little selection of photos of my time away.
More great gatsby style from my friends. Drinking a Magpie Girl Cocktail (eh how amazing!? Dont know anyone who could say they have a drink named after their blog!) posing with my 2 future sister in laws. My sister Sophie drinking her mojito.
My bridesmaids featured above did an amazing job at organising the best hen weekend ever!
As well as a cocktail making class featuring the now famous magpie girl cocktail ;) great gatsby themed soiree they also threw me a Mad Hatters tea party, with bunting, playing cards scattered all over the table, pinwheels and vintage china that my cousin had collected over time. But the array of food on offer was the main attraction & actually left me speechless. Here was what was on offer:
Mad Hatters Tea Party Menu
Salted caramel macaroons
Mini triple choc cookies
carrot cake whoopie pies
mini pecan pies
chocolate marble brownie bites
nutella and raspberry cups
Pesto pastry twists
mini toad in the hole
goats cheese & sweet potato pinwheels
egg & cress sandwiches
chicken salad sandwiches
Teas & Coffee:
Green, Green with cranberry, earl grey, happiness tea & breakfast tea.
All the above was hand made by my bridesmaids/culinary genius's!
I had the best time and cant thank them enough for giving me such an a great send off, cant wait for the wedding now! xx

The past few weeks I have been up and down to Dublin for work & off for a weekend in Mullingar on my hen party... I dont really know what way is up or what day it is! So Im not sure when these photos where taken... I think it was morning... I think before I went to work...some time over the past two weeks..possibly.
I love shirts! I know some people who have a real aversion to them, but personally I love them espeically buttoned up to the collar and maybe with some collar pins. I think its cause I never had a job with a uniform so Ive never associated them with being 'work wear'.
Jumper: H&M, Shirt c/o So Jeans, Skirt: H&M, Tights & Wedge Trainers: M&S, Spoon necklace: c/o Elsie Belle Jewellery, Glasses c/o Swag & Stare.
Dave was off on his stag do this weekend so I spent my time with my sister & mum. Wedding shoe shopping (sorted in the first shop, high five to me!) Picking up my wedding ring, getting my hair cut & coloured (finally) & eating enormous amounts of pasta & parmesan in Prezzo. Not a bad wee weekend.

So Im finally back! I had the best weekend away in Mullingar for my hen party weekend. My bridesmaids (who you met in the last post when they took over my blog!) went above and beyond and created the most amazing weekend ever. I am going to put together a post all about it as soon as I get a minute so I can share it with all you guys. Snippets will include the Great Gatsby 1920's theme soiree and a Mad Hatters Tea Party! :)
These photos were taken by a photographer friend of mine who has recently launched his own photography blog with you can see here. I have had this coat for a long time now, Dave bought me it for Christmas one year.. picked it on his very own and its one item of clothing I always get complemented on whenever I wear it. Its by Motel and is the brightest aqua blue collar, with black velvet peter pan colllar and giant one-sided button.
Coat: Motel, Shirt: Asos, Skirt: Zara, Boots c/o Call it spring, Necklace: Forever 21, Glasses: Gok Wan for Specsavers. Photos by twotimeszoom.
These shots were taken a few weekends ago now, I love nothing better than a lazy afternoon in a cafe &
a dreamy forest walk....
You can see other ways I styled this coat here, here & a really long time ago here.
