Some love them, some love to hate them. Make up your mind at Fallon & Byrne!
I’ve often wondered how this odd-shaped building looks like from the inside and last Friday I got a chance to find out as the Dublin Convention Centre hosted our office Christmas party. The venue was beautiful and atmospheric, and compliments to the chef(s) who managed to feed 500 people in style.
A winter day’s afternoon sun does not do much justice to Christmas lights, but without a doubt it lifts up the spirits of busy xmas shoppers.
The Christmas window display at Arnotts on Henry Street is definitely my favourite in the city. I love the use of natural materials and animal shapes as well as the section where artificial snow is gently falling down on mannequins in evening gowns. It’s like behind the glass is a magical world of it’s own, where there is abundance, creativity and joy. And unlike in the chaotic window display of Brown Thomas, there is still some simple beauty and elegance here.
A beautiful blue moment in the morning, when I was still walking around the house with wet hair and watching the world wake up through steamy windows.
A few more pictures from the Vintage Fashion & Decor Fair last weekend. This beautiful kimono came home with me

I’ve passed this Johnnie cupcakes stand a hundred times and I’ve always had the willpower to keep calm and carry on walking. But today the cupcakes won and after a long choosing process I walked away with a toffee&vanilla cupcake. Sadly, I didn’t get far until the next temptation hit and soon we found ourselves sitting at Starbucks with huge cups of Caramel Macchiatos in front of us. I really need to get back to work, these public holidays will be the end of me!
I was introduced to Nina Franco‘s work at the Arts Market on Exchange St. Upper in Temple Bar one Saturday a few weeks back and I ended up buying one of her prints titled “French Girl”. The Brazilian artist describes herself as photographer, feminist and anarchist. I’ll make sure to go and visit her latest exhibition “Leave Me Shout” which is opening tonight at the Avenue Road Gallery (Dublin 8).French Girl – on our bedroom wall
