I've been coveting many items on the designist. site for ages now so their shop was on my list of must-sees on our recent Dublin trip. These are just some of my favourite items but there is loads more to see here. I bought a lovely Cake Cafe tea towel during our trip as I was nostalgic for the years we lived in Dublin and places like this were on our doorstep!

Back to rainy Cork after a lovely week with these blue skies and lots of pooltime, reading and eating in Lagos, Portugal! Hoping this post might cheer up some of you sun-starved readers!

We were in Dublin last week for a Stone Roses gig but also to wander around and have a look at some of our favourite places! Highlights included Stephen's Green, Fallon & Byrne, Tower Records, Chester Beatty Library, Saba, Mulligans, Hodges Figgis, Designist, Carluccio's and Urban Outfitters. Also on my list of must-sees was the interiors section of Arnotts including BoConcept, The Conran Shop, Ligne Roset and Clodagh's Kitchen for coffee and cheese croissants!

We're going on a sun holiday for a change this summer so I decided I needed a beach-proof Sunglass Pouch.* I had this spotty vinyl from another project so strengthened it with some iron-on interfacing which made sewing much easier - one popper and cute button later and I had a really easy and quick to make pouch! *made with a template I found on Google Images
