Interior Design

Finally my living room is almost complete. I just need a few items to finish the room including an over mantle mirror, TV, ceiling light fitting and curtain tiebacks. I'm thinking of painting the inside of the unit a crisp white, as it is ivory and looks quite cream next to the white marble fireplace. What do you think? Have you any ideas for my over mantle mirror or the light fitting? I hope to use this room over the Christmas season. I am now on my holidays from work so have lots of time to decorate the house for Christmas, I just need less rain so I can go pick ivy, moss and berries in the hedges. I will keep you posted on my DIY Christmas decor.

November Sunset in Ireland

November sunsets are so beautiful... check out these photos I took last Sunday evening when the sun was setting over the lake.... A picture speaks louder than words.....

Ireland in November

It's hard to believe it is just one more week until December. 2015 seems to be flying by. I am looking forward to Christmas and lots of holidays from work... I love Christmas time and decorating my home- making it really cosy and warm for the long winter nights. Below are just a few images of life in the Irish Countryside in November... Hope you enjoy them...

The Beach at Barcelona

Back in September, I visited Barcelona for the first time. It is such a lovely city and I never realized that the beach was so close to the city itself. We spent a day around the beach area, it is very modern but very accessible to everyone. The weather was glorious too. Below are just a few of the photographs I took of the Mediterranean Sea. This was my first time to Spain and I was well impressed with it. Have you been to Barcelona? Did you enjoy the beach?

Things I Like this Week...

I haven't posted 'Things I Like' in such a long time, so here goes.... This month I'm liking all things country style, cute floral patterns and lots of autumnal colours.

 1. First up as always it's Cath Kidston... who doesn't like a bit of CK? The patterns are so cute and cheerful.

2. I'm also on the look out for a nice practical handbag that doesn't date... I've come across the Longchamp Tote which I'm loving the look of. I would love to hear your opinions on a nice practical handbag. I like bags that I can put over my shoulder as I don't like having to hold them in my hands all the time.
3. Finally, I can't get enough of Joules Clothing and everything Joules, their clothing is so practical but so stylish at the same time. They are the best at doing country classics and their clothing is perfect for life in the countryside and the city too if you live there. For lots of inspiration and style, visit Joules Journal
