Tie Dye and Galaxies

I was creeping through insta tags the other day and I came across this wee gem of an account that's run by the lovely Gina who's based in Dublin.

The gorgeous tie dye tops were what caught my attention so I followed the link to her Etsy shop (which you can find here). I always find Etsy to be hit and miss because although you can pretty easily find gorgeous pieces of jewellery or clothes or whatever you're looking for, the prices can sometimes be a bit steep. However I was delighted to find that was absolutely not the case here, Gina's products are all very reasonable! I treated myself to the Yin Yang Tie Dye T-Shirt which was less than €20 including shipping! Gina messaged me almost immediately after I placed the order regarding sizes, she was efficient and absolutely lovely to deal with.

This is the top as it was displayed on Gina's Etsy shop (A+ for the display, professional but still laid back which is seems to be a key feeling for Gina's pieces).

And this is my top, I went for a large so it'd be baggy enough to wear with leggings and I just layered my amethyst crystal necklace with my Buddha pendant, threw on my mint Vans and ta-da! Simple, comfy as hell and still cute as hell into the bargain. Perfect for warmer weather because I prefer laid back styles with minimal effort when the suns out.

I also ordered this crescent moon galaxy pendant which I'm in love with! (Pic credit to Gina's insta)

The colours are just as, if not more, vivid in real life which I was so happy with, plus such a bargain at €6 including shipping.

Proud to be a supporter of not only the little guy but also of Irish products, gotta look out for your own!

Head over here to Gina's Etsy shop and place your order ASAP and get into those tie dye summer vibes *peace sign emoji*

Forget Me Not

Today was lovely! The weather was beautiful so after a bit of a lie in and doing a few bits around the house, I grabbed my camera and a book and hit the road!

I didn't really have a destination in mind when I left the house but I decided to go a spot near the River Liffey which isn't too far from where I live. In the end I couldn't get parking near the area I had in mind so I kept going, looking for somewhere I could safely pull in so I could go for a ramble.

The only place I could pull in and park was in front of a very old rural graveyard which, as weird as this may sound, had some really beautiful trees and flowers and general scenery so I figured I'd start my wandering in there. I thought from the location of the graveyard that it might back onto the Liffey and I was right so I got to spend some time by the river even if it wasn't the exact place I had in mind.

I wouldn't call myself religious but I'm definitely somewhat spiritual so out of respect I didn't take photos of any graves or flowers/arrangements on the graves, just of the surrounding trees and plants.

I spent about 40 minutes wandering around and I got some really gorgeous shots which I'll leave below. You can find my flickr album of these photos here if you want to see them in bigger and better quality!

Hope everyone's loving the sunshiney vibes!
