Back from Ireland!

The abundance of posts in the past week's because I've been visiting family in Ireland who I don't get to see very often so it was lovely spending the best part of a week with them and celebrating my nineteenth! Here's a brief view of my week in photos!

 Gorgeous sunset view on the flight there! Somewhat pays off for having to get awkward flight times, the pictures don't really do the colours justice either!

 Travelled to Wicklow Mountains for my birthday; just a stones throw away from the beach and scenic mountains. 

 I'm in love with this watch my best friend bought me and cute nail wraps!

 Dressed casually for my birthday evening meal; love this River Island polka dot shirt which was quite a bargain at £15.

  Although it was quite overcast for the duration of our stay (typical) I still managed to snap a couple of decent pics.

We also took a day trip to Dublin, I love the hustle and bustle of big cities and haven't visited Dublin for a good few years so it was lovely to see all the sights again.
Going to be all hands on deck this week with getting things together to move into my uni house and commence my second year of studying at Manchester but I'm so excited to go back! I'm sure many of you are in the same boat with summer drawing to a close, I can't believe how fast it's gone and how little I seem to have accomplished.


  1. Hi Alex, congratulations with your 19th birthday! I hope you celebrated it well.
    Ireland is one of the countries I really would like to visit one day. Especially because of the beautiful nature it has.
    I really love your birthday evening meal outfit, that River Island polka dot shirt is so pretty, I absolutely love it! And your shoes are super cute.
    Have fun at uni! My year starts on the 23th of September.
