I could really get used to these kinda summers we've had over the past two years. We're checking the weather forecast every few days to see when we can head to the beach again when we're not too busy. We even have a little tradition now of heading to Fountainstown beach, followed by coffee and ice cream in the cute cafe down there afterwards. As you can see, no matter how many times we go for a dip, someone is still not a fan of the slimy seaweed, just like her Mum!

Things have been a little quiet here over the past few days. I've been diving into a few DIY projects, working on the preparations for the John Saul Picnic & Vintage Fair with the other Le Chat Noir girls and I've been kept busy sending parcels from the online store to Cork, Dublin, Galway and New York this week. In between all of this, there's been beach trips and picnics in the sunshine. It's weeks like this that I have no choice nor do I mind letting the blog be a little silent.
Enjoy the weekend!

Whenever I have the time and energy to do a victory roll or two in my hair, I always remind myself to do them more often...but I usually don't have the time or energy! Even if I'm not wearing anything vintage, an ol' victory roll makes me feel majorly old school and classy.

Last weekend myself and Nancy headed to little Archie's second birthday celebrations. Leona, one of the Le Chat Noir girls, had a teepee party in the sun with a beautiful cake from Swell Bakeshop (every good party needs a Swell cake!)
The best part of the afternoon was trying to get three little people to pose for a photo. We weren't successful but had fun trying!
Happy birthday Archie!

It's mid-July, holy moly! The summer seems to be flying by but sometimes it takes a quick flick through my camera phone to see how much we seem to be squishing into the weeks and months. I've been keeping a close eye on my list of goals before my next birthday a lot lately and to be honest, I can only cross off about 7 of these goals so far. With just four months to go before I turn 30, I better get cracking.

We're ignoring the crappy weather and continuing to take trips to the beach, playing in the garden and having the odd ice cream.

A lot of 70's happening in the store at the moment. I've already moved onto listing autumn/winter items which is always bittersweet. Saying goodbye to beach days but gearing up for cosy layers and chunky knitwear!
