Ireland is currently experiencing a bit of a heat wave.......and it is still only March! It has put everybody in such a great mood, it's amazing how good weather can do that. Hopefully this is a sign of a beautiful warm summer ahead so we can get the most out of our summer wardrobe. This fabulous weather has me in the mood to go shopping for all the gorgeous spring clothes that have hit the shops in the last couple of weeks, roll on payday Friday!

I don't have any tattoos. It's not that I have an aversion to them, nor am I afraid of needles. ( I donate blood every three months!) The simple reason being is that I'm too indecisive, too fickle. I often grow tired of things quickly and change my mind at the blink of an eye. Tattoos are too definite, too long term, too 'there for life'.
One other reason that I have never gone down the path of getting 'inked' is perhaps that I've never been so inspired by an idea or seen a tattoo that I absolutely adore or found something meaningful that I want on me for life.
However....the above image caught my eye a while ago and every time I come across it, I'm growing more and more attached. It's so beautiful, so liberating, I just love it.
I recently heard someone describe their tattoos, as being part of their body, like their nose or their hands. I never thought of it like that before.
What do you think of tattoos?

The peplum is going to be huge for Spring Summer 2012 and as usual the exquisite Olivia Palermo is already ahead of the game and has been sporting the trend. Whether on a skirt, dress, jacket or blouse, the peplum was all over the catwalks and will be the 'must have' shape for the upcoming season. Be on the look out for peplums now! I will do a post soon on peplum shapes available on the highstreet.

In the couple of weeks, when choosing a colour for my nails, I've been attracted to bright summery colours or soft pastels, but never actually painting them on as i felt it was a little too early!The weather is too cold and it still feels wintery out. Last week I had a dark burgundy on my nails and every time I looked at them they didn't feel right. It's time to bust out the spring colours! So yesterday I painted my nails in a bright mint green and I feel so refreshed! Spring has sprung, at least as far as my nails are concerned.
