A Girly Affair

I'm always looking for alternative ways to display my favourite things on my vanity. Santy must have known I was eyeing this little beauty up for when I move out and get my own place, but for the moment, instead of being used for cupcakes I am going to use it for makeup and jewellery.


A gorgeous pattern of baby pink and lilac with gold and floral designs, it is the perfect girly touch for my otherwise all black desk area. Especially handy for your everyday pieces that you can have at the ready to speed up the painful morning process of applying our war paint for the day ahead.


On the top plate I have placed a few of my favourite jewellery pieces that I tend to wear a lot. Items too pretty to store away in a jewellery box. 


When the time comes, I will use this to display delicious cupcakes in my new apartment as I love to bake but I thought it was a cute idea you guys might want to try out for your vanity at home. Something like this could also be gorgeous with your favourite perfumes displayed in your bathroom.


Hope you like this. Love Jen xxx

Secret Surroundings

Yesterday, me and Berto went for a nice walk in the crisp, cold weather here in Dublin. A little secret walk in the suburbs of the city was just what we needed to get some fresh air and out of the house for a while. Sometimes it's nice to get out of the city and the hustle and bustle of the Christmas rush and appreciate your secret surroundings. A perfect afternoon.

A Christmas Tale

Yes! We are home. We surprised our families and arrived on their doorsteps to everyone's astonishment. Trying to adjust back to Irish weather, not sure I'm ready to commit.

One thing I could not go without this year was decorating the Christmas tree. I do it every year in my family and couldn't break the tradition. It was also giving me major anxiety, thinking of all the decorations going in the wrong places, I know, OCD issues hehe. Here are some of my favourite decorations on our tree.

Hope you all have an amazing Christmas and get all the goodies your asking from Santa
