Following on from my post Sequins on Saturday – I decided it was time to do a Autumn/Fall clean up of my wardrobe. I wouldn’t class myself as a hoarder by any means but let’s just say I don’t part easily with my clothes! So as you can imagine I spent most of yesterday evening sorting through clothes, shoes, bags, belts & lots of other hidden items at the back of my closet….
I organised everything into 3 categories
3. Summer clothes for storage
By the time I was finished my wardrobe was completely made-over! I’ve lots of free space for new pieces & I didn’t waste anytime hitting the shops……my fav finds are these high waisted shorts & 70’s style blouse from Zara

There is something about Homemade soup that is so comforting, after a rainy day with power cuts across the city today was the perfect day to make a batch.
Inspired by the orange & yellow colours from Emily’s post on Cupcakes and Cashmere today I decided to go with one of my fav’s Gingered Carrot & Butternut Squash (Recipe here). I flicked on the movie Incendiary Blonde…poured a glass of wine & began the soup making. I wanted to make some Irish Brown Bread also, but the local shop ran out of Butter-Milk, so I picked up a wheat baguette instead. I’ll bake & post the recipe for Irish Brown Bread soon because it’s too good not to share.
I was very impressed with the soup, it turned out yummy & by the time I finished cooking downtown’s power was fully restored – All in all a successful evening!
Well it’s started & there’s no sign of stopping, it has been raining for hours now. Rain – a well known enemy for most women out there, especially for me as I live downtown…hence I’m car-less, & as I’m car-less I walk everywhere…so there’s no escape !
To prevent myself from turning into one soggy & fuzz-haired gal, I need to arm myself with all outerwear essentials to keep me warm, dry & of course protect mo gruaig (Irish meaning – My hair).

After a lot going back & forth………& then back & forth again, I finally made the very last minute decision to travel to France for my friends wedding & I’m so delighted that I did, it was such a wonderful day…..
My Highlights; The French Ceremony, 1975 Vintage Citroen Car, Champagne Reception, Lot`s of laughs shared with friends & guests, Yummy local food accompanied with lot`s of French White wine, Homemade Wedding Cake, The Favors – Whiskey for the Gents & flip flops for the Ladies (they got great use on the dance-floor), The Reception Setting – the trees draped with fairy lights, rugs & lights covered the courtyard underneath to make the dance-floor, great music – we barely left the floor all night! The friendly crew from Chateau de Lartigolle & last but not least – The Happy Groom & The Beautiful Bride – who wore big smiles all day long & gave us all a Fabulous French Wedding – Merci Beaucoup x
The Venue; Chateau de Lartigolle
Friday couldn’t have come any sooner……it was so nice to wrap a long work week with a few beers on the patio of Hey Lucy’s. Who knew it would hit 21 degrees this Thanksgiving weekend.
This will be our 3rd Thanksgiving in Canada, myself & my boyfriend are planning on marking the occasion by attempting to cook up a proper Thanksgiving dinner – Turkey, Sweet Potatoes, Squash, Pumpkin Pie…the works.
Let’s hope us Irish can pull it off!
I hope you all have a great weekend whatever your plans & Happy Thanks Giving to all the Canadians out there
