Please excuse my fluffy hair, it was raining (sigh) while we were taking these. But I don’t really mind, I love coming to the Iveagh Gardens. It’s probably one of my favorite places in Dublin. I love how it’s rarely busy, well kept and also in the centre of town .But no one seems to know about it. It’s like Dublin’s Secret Garden.

Flower headband & spiked ring – Rock’N’Rose, Dress – Chicwish, Boots – Dr.Martens.

I was too impatient to wait until tomorrow to take photos in this headband, even though the weather isn’t amazing I actually love this type of light and my back garden made a nice backdrop for this shoot. It’s always fun trying to shoot in my garden, it’s like a farm out there with all our animals! I have four chickens who like to follow you around so it’s hard not to get them in any full length shots, but they managed to sneak their way in : )

On a more serious note, Lana Del Rey is one inspiring lady. I’m not the first nor will I be the last to do a look like this, but it was just so much fun dressing up and doing my make up like hers I had to share it! I really wish I was going to a music festival this summer, this would most definitely be my perfect festival attire. But perhaps I wouldn’t wear as much make up, this is a lot heavier than what I am used to! Let me know if you guys want a tutorial!
Love,

Lana Del Rey – inspired.

This absolutely beautiful headband is from Rock ‘N Rose. I am head over heels about it! As soon as I saw it on the website I knew I would have do some sort of Lana Del Rey inspired look with it! It’s so fairy-tale princess, I can’t wait ;) Just wanted to show you guys a close-up first.

Dress – Romwe, Necklace – Les Jumelles, Shades & boots – Chicwish.

I came home to some lovely packages and here are some of my goodies. I love this Romwe jumper-dress thing. It’s a little see-through but what the heck. And Les Jumelles were lovely enough to send me out a few surprises and I just adore this necklace they chose for me, it’s something I don’t think I would have ever picked up in a shop but the more I look at it, the more I love it! For a closer look at the necklace I have a pic up over on Instagram!

So yesterday was our last day here in Amsterdam, I honestly can’t believe it’s gone by this fast already! I really love this city and I am so happy Ronan and I came here again, it’s been a totally different experience from the one we had nearly 4 years ago and I’ve loved every minute.

Amsterdam has the perfect mixture of everything I like, it’s a city with such a friendly atmosphere, beautiful architecture, busy but not over crowded streets, scenic canals & lots of trees. I love how so many people cycle everywhere, I’ve seen mums with 3 kids in the front basket of their bikes, it’s so adorable.

I think I can speak for Ronan and myself when I say that we felt very welcomed, which is such a lovely feeling. I know we are here on a particularly good week weather-wise so I may be on a little bit of a love buzz, but I have to say Amsterdam has most definitely stolen my heart. <3
