Hello everyone! I hope you’re having a fabulousssss day! Today’s post is a good un’, it’s a collaboration with a lovely girl (my new internet friend ;)), who’s blog you have to check out, here’s a link to her page: Marshmallow Skye!
We had the idea to do today’s post as if it were a diary entry. The day I’ve chosen is last Sunday, as it was the day after my brother’s birthday and my family went out to Ireland’s capital, Dublin, to celebrate!
At 9a.m on Sunday morning I woke up to the sound of ducks quacking, which (don’t ask why), is the noise I set my alarm to make. God knows why… Who possibly enjoys waking up to the sound of a flock of angry ducks quacking you awake? I certainly don’t, so don’t ask me why I chose such an absurd and utterly ridiculous alarm noise to wake me up. Anyway, I got up out of bed and tiptoed past my still-fast-asleep (despite the quacking ducks) friend Hayley, who had slept over at my house the night before, and I quickly hopped in the shower.
About thirty minutes later I was washed, dressed and ready to dry my hair. Everyone in my family has been borrowing my hairdryer recently, as my mum’s broke, and it is INFURIATING! I never know where it is! Anyway (x2), I dried and curled my hair and went back upstairs to put on makeup. I didn’t put on much as I was in a rush, so all I used was the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer, the Collection contour and highlight kit, some eyeshadows from Revolution’s ‘Girls on Film; palette, Rimmel’s ‘Wake Me Up’ mascara and a nude lip gloss by Seventeen.
We left for Dublin at around 11a.m and dropped Hayley back home on the way there.
We were planning on going shopping in Dublin but since the weather was hot and sunny (for Ireland..), we decided to drive to Howth first, which is a beautiful seaside town on Dublin’s coastline. One thing I love about Dublin is that it’s a major city right beside the sea! Here are some pictures I took: (please give credit if you use them).
The atmosphere was amazing and everyone that was there seemed to be having as much of a lovely time as I did. We went into the Howth Market, where there were people selling all different kinds of things, especially food. There was one company there selling crazy popcorn flavours, e.g. cinnamon, oreo, mixed berry.
After pottering around Howth for a while we decided to drive into the city, to go shopping. The weather stayed beautiful the entire time we were there. We decided to split up once we got there, as everyone wanted to go to different places. So my brother (Sam) and his girlfriend (Courtney) went off to do their thing, my Dad went off to whatever shops he likes, and my mum and me went to Tiger, Penneys/Primark, Forever 21, M&S and Burger King… (for a quick snack). I’ve heard good things about the Penneys/Primark liquid lipsticks, so I got one.
About 2 and a half hours later we decided it was time for a meal, we had all had a good look around and we were all starving. We were originally planning on going to a vegan restaurant, as my brother, his girlfriend, and my dad all don’t eat meat or dairy, but we soon found out that it was closed, so we had to find somewhere else. We had a good look around for a nice place to eat until we came across this cute little sushi restaurant called Zakura, the prices were reasonable and the atmosphere was good.
I ordered the chicken ramen, here’s what it looked like:
I really did enjoy it, but it was so so spicy that it was hurting me to eat any more by the end. The quantity was massive, but it was definitely enjoyable despite me not being able to finish it for it being too spicy! I would definitely recommend visiting this restaurant, for anyone interested, Zakura is located on Camden Street on the South side of Dublin.
It was quite late by the time we were finished eating, but we weren’t going home yet! My brother who is into music, and is a very talented guitarist and singer, wanted to sing at an open mic night, in a pub in Dublin. I was sceptical at first as I was so tired and didn’t even know if I’d get in, but it was fine, and I actually had a great time in the end. Everyone that sang there was very talented and friendly. There were so many different types of people there from different countries and I really enjoyed myself, as did everyone else.
Here’s a picture of my brother singing 😉
I really hope you enjoyed this post, and don’t forget to read Marshmallow Skye‘s! Hers is a very exciting one!
Bye for now x
