Looking For The Dress

Even though I have no plans to get married anytime soon I still enjoy flicking through pictures of wedding dresses. Amodabridal.com.au has a great website to look through for inspiration. They also have great prices. Makes me want to get amodabridal.com.au to send me a dress and get hitched on a whim.

I love a good bridal Pinterest board as well. I love the very loose wedding dresses and a messy braid. They are so cool nowadays. amodabridal.com.au is such a cute place to look for dresses and is prefect if you're on a budget.

Life on these pictures were perfect. The pictures are the absolute when it comes to perfection, why did anyone think we ever had to evolve from this? Why did anyone think they could ever make it better? Cameras have become technically better, clearer and whatnot, but no camera could take better pictures than these. Style have become more individual, daring and exciting, but no one looks better styled than people in these pictures. Buildings have become larger, more advanced and there are a lot more buildings now, but the cities doesn't look any better now than they did then. Movie stars have become thinner, smarter about what they say on camera and their teeth are whiter, but they were never more beautiful, mysterious and adored than they were then. Why did we ever think it could get better than this? 

I know I look at this time of the world with rose tainted glasses. We live in a fantastic time right now, but at the same time, what happened? I find these photos so captivating and beautiful. I want to be them and live them. Anyway, I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do

Staying Fit The Second Month Into The New Year

New Years Resolutions? Always. Never. Either. Both. Neither. 

I don't take them too seriously.. I haven't spoken about them on my blog yet this year. I usually come up with a few. This year I decided to do something different. I decided not to set a goal for the year considering a year is such a long time. I know for a fact that I didn't think much about my resolutions in August last year - or April for that matter. This year I set three goals, only, for the next three months. I wrote them down and check on them often, still. I'm excited to say I'm right on target! They include reading at least three books, save a certain amount of money and focus on my healthy eating and exercise. I know the exercise thing seems old, worn and not exciting anymore, but I still want to include it on the list. I always need to keep up with my healthy eating and exercise and one of the things that inspire me the most is cute exercise gear and wear. I got myself some new exercise outfits earlier in the year that I have loved and I decided that I wanted to share some cute outfits with you as well - in the spirit of continuing fitness goals in the second month of the year. I made a list of super cute Fabletics pieces that I found on their website. Serious outfit goals. 

Blue Shorts - Tights - Sports Bra - Grey Print Jacket - Grey Jacket - Peach Top - Black Jacket - Bottle 

I can swift through the Fabletics website all day, seriously. I love their stuff and will be ordering sooner rather than later. I also love going to their site, even only for fitspiration, because they personalise what you see on the page by asking you simple questions before you start looking. Questions like; what's your favourite way to get fit, what's your favourite colours and what's your size. They alway pick out the cutest outfits that suit my taste and needs. I'm also a big Kate Hudson fan and love seeing her model the clothes and love seeing her 'picks'. I follow Kate on Snapchat and see her open Fabletics packages all the time which makes me inspired and jealous.

Important updates

Happy new year! Most years I would have already made many lists of realizations, reflections, goals, dreams, accomplishments for the old year and the new. So far this year I have been so busy working and whatnot that I haven't done, or wanted to do, any of it. I've had such a great and peaceful Christmas and New Year celebration. My dad was here the entire time which was amazing. I'm completely hooked to Parks and Recreation. It's hilarious. I also started Westworld which is interesting. I'm watching it with Ken and he already has eight theories and possible outcomes for the show. He's probably correct, somehow, with all of them.

I feel like the fact that David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Carrie Fisher, Alan Rickman and Harper Lee died in 2016 made me feel like I died a little as well. It was weird to see Love Actually knowing that Alan Rickman is actually dead. Carrie Fisher was the coolest woman ever and her dog is really cute. Harper Lee, Leonard Cohen and David Bowie all changed my life. Rest in peace.

I will try to do more outfit posts. I shop so much second hand lately, I love it so much. I love finding clothes that has already been owned and worn by someone and had a life.

Also, I became vegan recently. I love it. Have you noticed how vegans often take it their lifestyle choice extremely seriously? Vegan starter pack: an extremely judgemental attitude for anyone who doesn't eat and live like them, puts the word 'vegan' in their Instagram bio, preach about veganism any chance they get, hate in the comments on anything posted anywhere on the internet that isn't about veganism, use the hashtag #vegan and #veganbody any chance they get, a hunger to prove that vegans can do anything, defensiveness against anything non-vegan especially non-vegan comments of any kind, an unending lust to talk about them being vegan. Some even wear t-shirts that says 'vegan'. Long story short, I think vegans give veganism a bad rep. It's just a simple choice not to eat animals or animal products. I can't say I will never do any of those vegan things, but I will enjoy learning new recipes and enjoy not preaching unless asked. Other than that, I have to say it's pretty amazing, ha!

May you receive everything you need and wish for in 2017 <3

 

 

Christmas

Happy Christmas everyone. Ken and I are hosting a dinner at ours and I'm excited to have a relaxing Christmas time to shake off 2016 and feel refreshed for 2017. My dad arrives today and I can't wait. It's cold here in Ireland, there was suppose to be a storm and there kind of was one, but it lasted in total about 20 minutes and it was dry again by afternoon. I hope it remains dry!

I'm looking forward to see Hollys little face when she gets to open her present!

Is anyone else experiencing post traumatic stress disorder after the election?? I'm shook and not over it. I'm still with her. I look forward to see the first female take the most powerful role in the world today - whenever that may be.

I have a feeling 2017 will be fantastic, I look forward to it.

I wish you a peaceful and wonderful Christmas <3
