While I was free lancing-slash-unemployed for most of last year I had plenty of time to wander around town and I definitely fell head over heels in love with our little fair city of Dublin. Now, I spend most of my week couped up in an office and despite living just ten minutes from Stephen's Green, I miss all the free time I had just lolling around. Which is why I love the weekends so much! Strolling round town, browsing, buying and simply soaking up the atmosphere, whether on my own or with a friend, is one of my favourite things in the world.

Today was a great example of a perfect Saturday. After spending the afternoon with friends I headed home via Brown Thomas, sampling Jo Malone scents and stopping off for a sneaky raspberry macaroon at the Lauderee counter. My priority however lay with Mulberry - I wanted to check out their new showcase area in the bag hall, and more importantly have a stroke of the new Alexa bag. You would think that finally owning my own Mulberry Bayswater since Christmas would keep my obsession at bay, but the Alexa has ignited new passion in me. I spent ages chatting to the lovely sales girl and somehow ended up putting my name down on the waiting list. Just in case I come into some money! No harm in being prepared!


  1. OOOH, a post after my own heart! I love long walks around Dublin I also 'treat' myself to s stroll around BT's. It's weird that just being in there makes you feel better, though I'm a lemon Macroon kind of a gal!
    I also adore the Alexa... I have my fingers crossed that you will have the pennies in time, though of course I shall be knocking on your office door to borrow it! x

  2. thanks whisty..i'm not sure I could ever justify buying it right now, I'd kind of feel like i was cheating on my lovely bayswater - I promised to be committed to it for many years to come! the lemon macaroons are fab too, i got a box at christmas adore all the flavours!x

  3. Great bag! I wouldn't have many doubts either if I had extra cash!
