Summer, Summertime!

I’ve been looking forward to the June Bank Holiday for weeks, especially since the the weather has been so good recently. Ireland is the greatest place on earth when it is sunny and this weekend it is the return of BikeFest in Killarney. 

We suffer through the Rally of the Lakes and wait for the Big Boys to roll in- the atmosphere as soon as you hear the rumble of engines is incredible. They usually bring good weather with them which means outdoors daytime drinking – Irish people live for it!  If ever you’re free come to Killarney.

This morning I revisited Desire Restaurant at the Westend to have more of my fave breakfast. Crepes stuffed with fruit yum yum! 

At work we wear a uniform so it was time to break out the summer wardrobe- I’m an Autumn/Winter person so dressing for summer has usually ended up in tears. Body confidence issues throughout my teenage life creep up as soon as its shorts season. This year was no different but I’ve decided to overcome these silly thoughts. My legs aren’t toned, I’m squishy in places and I eat too much pizza. Again I’m too lazy. They say summer bodies are made in winter but that’s hibernation time! 

And so to the wardrobe I seem to have cleaned out NewLook and Penneys this season- I have yet to get near a city- Killarney is so limited when it comes to clothing! I end up returning everything I buy online so it’s pointless. With limited time off too I find I wear one outfit then I’m done- does anyone else have these problems or am I just nuts?! 

I’m enjoying not wearing as much makeup (with extra highlight though!), flip flops, sunglasses and big skirts- there is no better feeling than a big skirt 👑 

If anyone else is enjoying the ‘lush life’ like me I would thoroughly recommend visiting Irish Whiskey Experience. For the best gin and tonic in town try the Dingle Gin with basil and grapefruit or Bertha’s Revenge Gin with grapefruit, just like its namesake it’s got a bit of heat to it. The staff are friendly and the chips are great. 

I hope everyone is having a glorious time- Happy Long Weekend!
