Riverbank | Country Pub & Guesthouse

Last week, with the tail end of hurricane Abigail still belting down, we set off for a night in the country.

By the time we left it was late in the evening, so we packed our overnight bags into the car as quick as we could in the biting winds and lashing rain, kissed everyone goodbye, and put the wipers on full speed. Temperatures had plummeted from the previous week and anything that wasn't nailed down literally took flight!

It was the perfect night for a country pub with a roaring fire, and luckily that was exactly where we were headed.

Cannes la Bocca Plage | Le Cabanon

I discovered an interesting hashtag on Instagram recently while browsing though Local Milk's beautiful feed. It was called #theartofslowliving. I loved it immediately. Here I found pictures of everyday things, beautiful everyday things, that sum up the simplicity of life and how truly precious it is.

And this photo I took on holiday last month with my family (Mum, Dad, Alison & Emily) really sums this up for me.

Habitat | What home means...

When Habitat decided to close its doors on College Green, Dublin in 2008 I have to admit I was a little bit devastated.. To me Habitat wasn't just a retail shop, it was a place where I used to not only browse but dream of filling my first home with its smart, contemporary, well-designed products.
