I have been off gallivanting quite a bit lately, whipping out my camera at every possible opportunity. I received some amazing feedback from this post and so I thought I would incorporate some more lifestyle-y posts into my blog. I have mentioned that I love reading these kinds of posts, and more often than not I find myself trawling through food blogs or other lifestyle blogs just absorbing inspiration. I have also become quite fond of my little Sony Nex 5 DSLR, and I really have come to appreciate quality and detail in photographs, and so thought it would do no harm to document some of my adventures here.
First of all I hope all my readers had a lovely Easter weekend! I spent saturday having a posh lunch with my lovely friend Aoife before hitting the pub for an afternoon pint. Sunday was spent consuming way more chocolate than I should have and visiting Kilruddery House and Farmers Market in Wicklow before returning home fresh and springy ready for a family roast. I am also no longer unemployed! HALLELUJAH! After quitting my last job I have been quite sick, visiting doctor after doctor before eventually ending up in the hospital because after 6 weeks of 'food poisoning', it was concluded that it was something a bit more serious than food poisoning. I am finally back on the mend and rearing for my new jobby! YES!

I've become such an outdoorsy person as of late, just wanting to nip off, get outside and wander. Check out the possessed goat! I know many of you may not like these kinds of posts, and from now on they probably will just pop up once in a while. I am thinking of setting up a foodie type blog for these kinds of things, where I can post about things I've made and eaten from day to day, or in restaurants out. I did have a food blog yonks ago, but it kind of suffered and got neglected, and so I want to start afresh. Next project maybe? It all depends on how this new job will take it's toll on me. I am preparing for a 6 day work week, working well into the early hours, so it will probably take time to adjust.
I sorted out my wardrobe today and was so amazed to see forgotten clothes and also!; forgotten makeup items. I am ashamed to say that some makeup products are sitting on my dresser still untouched, still packaged and all. I think a makeup ban is in order! It will benefit me in the long term, because then I can actually save up for things I really want, rediscover old favourites, discover new favourites, and use up what I have.
I do this from time to time, decide I am never buying makeup again and then cave a week later. But in all honesty, can anyone really have too many lipsticks?! I don't think so. :)
