Midweek Musings

Today's third edition of midweek musings comes in the form of lovely Pinterest finds.

The weather here is gloomy again today and I thought this board would brighten things up a bit.

1 // The brightness and colors of this bedroom are gorgeous. I hope to recreate this look & feel once we move back home.

2 // I love this pineapple print design. So fun and summery.

3 // This would be such a lovely piece to take to the beach this summer. I need something like this for our cruise in July.

4 // What better treat than homemade pretty pink ice cream in waffles cones.

Here are past midweek musing editions I and II.

Happy Easter!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! It has been such a lovely long weekend with the bird chasing down the last of the cherry blossom trees here in Dublin.

This week is full of outfit planning and prep for my trip to Paris! Can't wait to spend the week there with my mom starting Saturday. Any last minute suggestions would be very well received. :)

Friday's Round up + Winners

Yay for Friday and the long Easter weekend ahead!

1 // A week from today, I will be traveling to Paris! I am beyond excited! This is a trip for just my mom and I and it seems like the perfect mother/daughter getaway to me!

2 // After this lovely giveaway, I have been inspired by gorgeous abstract art everywhere. Even though it isn't the real thing, I found this gold leaf abstract canvas diy on Pinterest that has me seriously inspired.

3 // It's spring... and pink cocktails are in order. I may have to start with this pretty Rhubarb Sour.

4 // April showers bring may flowers. These would certainly brighten up our place and actually make it feel like spring around here.

5 // Lastly, here are the winners from the giveaways last week:

Crocodile Fold Over Clutch  //  Winner: Claire

Congrats to the winners! And thank you for everyone who participated and has supported Birdie to be!

Happy Friday & Easter weekend! Here's to a long weekend of indulgence in chocolate eggs and jelly beans.

Weekend in London

A couple weeks ago my brother was over for a visit. It is so nice having family over... but makes us miss home so much!
During his stay, we took a quick trip over to London to show him the sites. It was such a fun weekend!
We managed to cover all the touristy attractions, including Big Ben, The Parliament Buildings, London Eye, Kensington Palace, Westminster Abbey, St. James' Cathedarl, Soho District and Abbey Road.

The last two times we've been over to London, we've stayed at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge. I highly recommend this hotel. The rooms were very nice and it's in the perfect location for walking around site seeing & taking the Tube.

Weekend Recaps

I hope you had a great weekend. Ours was lovely and I am already looking forward to the long weekend coming up!
The morning sunrise along the canal on the way to yoga Friday morning.
Saturday date night here, complete with Champagne Mint Juleps. Yum!
Arguably one of my favorite things about spring are the pretty pink cherry blossoms.
On Sunday, we took another hike along the Howth coastline.
Here are pictures from our last hike there.

Don't forget about the giveaways (one, two and three) from last week. They are all open til Friday. I will announce the winner in my post.
