It has become cold and wet here again this week. So thought turn to summer and brightness both in terms of clothes and interiors.

I do change my house a little between winter and summer. I change the cushions from stronger heavier fabrics ie. velvet to lighter colours and textures.

I do love the many sea/ beach themed rooms that you see.

Here are some of my favourites.

Happy Mothers Day and have a lovely weekend.

I think I would be a better blogger if I sat here

Great mix of textures.

Such a fresh and chic room

A very funky kitchen that would suit a beach house 

Lovely bunk beds and they look so neat

Great combination of blue and cream

I love the coral of this coral duvet combined with the headboard.

Happy Mothers Day

It was a bank holiday weekend last weekend so we had Monday off so a shorter working week for everyone here.

I went down to Dunmore East last weekend to open up the house. It was a weekend of dusting and cleaning but I did manage to get some long walks in.

You can forget how beautiful this place is but do not be fooled by the sun in the photos it was absolutely freezing and temperatures are suppose to drop even more this weekend. Oh how I long for sunshine.

So here is a little beachside post from somone longing for a summer at the beach.

Rocky running on the beach

Just so peaceful only me on the beach

Seagulls at the port

I did see people swimming I do not know how they swim in such cold water.

I made this peri peri prawns from the frugality blog.

Oh how I long for this.

I bought these shorts from j crew unfortunately the shirt was sold out.

Have a fun weekend.

Some ladies love to buy shoes or bags for me it is accessories everything from scarves to jewellrey , sunglasses etc. I think the simplest outfit is finished by the perfect accessories.

I also think they are great presents for your friends.

I cannot let this weekend go by without wishing Ireland good luck in their rugby match and hoping that Brian O'Driscoll will enjoy playing his final match in Dublin. ( For thoese of you who are not familiar with Brian he is our best ever rugby player who is retiring this weekend. He is one of thoese sportsmen who is everything that is good about sport).

Scarves are my favourite accessorie I rarely wear an outfit without one.

Really like this necklace it's probably chanel so a liitle out of my league. But the good thing is there are so many good copies of more exspensive items.

I just love the prettiness of this photo

A good pair of sunglasses is a must

I really like this necklace . I do not know where it is from.

A chunky watch.

My own favourite necklace

Brian O'Driscoll

My own personal favourite of Brian. Just look at the joy on this little girls face.

Oh it feels like Spring is here at last . I so want to get rid of my gloves, hat, scarf and wooly jumpers. 

So just to cheer myself up I have a little pink post. I am definitely a summer person just looking at these pictures puts a smile on my face that simply does not happen when I look at winter clothes.

Are you a summer or a winter person?

I hope you have a lovely March and the sun shines and flower blooms.

Great combination with the denim jacket and shoes

 I really love this blouse I do not know where it is from

Such a feminine outfit with a lovely pink scarf belt.

Chic combination

Roses my favourites

My garden last year

This outfit is closest to what I am wearing at the moment

Blush pink is a great change from strong pink.
