no snow, but loads of fog in snowdonia!

Went on a day trip to Wales, took a trolley train ride up the mountain. Here we're at the top!!!

Then we headed to a cute little town in Snowdown mountain called Betws-y-Coed!

DUBLIN for st.pat's

 SO excited to be in Ireland to celebrate the day of the Irish! Here I am first thing in the morning on St. Patrick's Day all decked out!!

Wearing our matching green shoes and Ireland scarfs. It's funny how many stares we got rocking these in Manchester and Leeds on our travels the day before...once in Dublin it all made sense!

Craziness at the St.Patrick's Day parade filled with band pipers, weird creatures and St.Patrick himself!

Left the parade early to head to the GUINNESS factory

At the gravity bar about to get our first pint of Guinness with our tickets!

Temple bar district and backpackers pub crawl at night to finish off a really fun and memorable life goal of celebrating St.Patty's in Ireland!

Went sunglasses shopping the other day with my BBF (British Best Friend as Paris Hilton would say) helping her to find some designer'd think with hundreds and hundreds in Selfridges and Harvey Nics sunglasses sections and with spring/summer quickly approaching you'd be able to find something amazing to suit you! SO much harder than it seems to find just the right pair for your face shape! ...

Then we finally hit the jackpot at Dior and Louis Vuitton at Selfridges.  Never forget to check out the individual designer sections where they keep some of their latest sunglasses collections separate! These Dior 61 sunglasses are absolutely amazing on Lucy! She's definitely investing in them for our upcoming trip...

I wasn't having any luck finding a single pair that looked all that great (especially for the prices) but then I fell in LOVE with the Evidence sunglasses from Louis Vuitton. My eyes were immediately drawn to the funky take on the aviators, there was literally a gold glow radiating from these glasses, before I even tried them on I knew that they'd be amazing. They are actually male sunglasses, but I've heard that the Louis Vuitton 2010 sunglass collection is very 'unisex'. Of course I ask the price and they are £400! Would die to own these...I just imagine how great it would be to have these walking around Italy and Spain in less than 2 weeks!

Imagine sifting through a wardrobe a fashion-girl can only dream of having...that is my Auntie Anna's designer closet. She has always had the most amazing clothes that I can remember admiring since I was little!
  • Imagine drawers full of Neil Lane, Cartier, David Yurman and every possible Tiffany & Co. item of jewelry, mixed with some amazing vintage pieces. 
  • Imagine shelves of boxes and boxes filled with Stuart Weitzman, Jimmy Choo, Manolos, Louis Vuitton...I would die for just one pair!
  • Imagine a closet full of D&G, Diane Von Furstenberg, Nanette Lepore, Donna Karan, Burberry, Pucci...
  • Imagine trunk fulls designer handbags from Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Fendi, Kate Spade, Gucci, Marc Jacobs...
And this is only to list a mere few!  I could go on and on... I was lucky enough to be able to go and get a tour of her designer filled walk-in-closet (make that closets) over the holidays back home.

Her gorgeous ETRO jacket!

My designer duds!

Does anyone else have someone close to them whose wardrobe they've always admired? Even strived for? It's great to have someone to connect to and share a love and appreciation for fashion with! Kind of what I think the fashion blogging world is all about...and why it's become so popular.

the lovely edinburgh

Edinburgh is very NORTHERN UK so just had to opt for the warmest items of clothing I had here, maybe not the most fashion-forward, but definitely practical! So I did what I can with my 'Canadian' inspired gear, my long Olympic TNA jacket from Aritzia and some UGG boats...ACCESSORIZE! That is belted it with a studded vintage belt and wet look leggings and then put it with a vintage scarf and big earrings. Made it more ME. The wind made my hair go crazy this weekend!

 What I predicted and more. SUCH a beautiful city!!! We did lots of cliff climbing (worth it for the views!), site seeing, the queens castle (of course), went on a really fun pub crawl and went to this famous dr and mr hyde pub for food. Overall just another amazing weekend trip! 

FYI: So sorry for the delay in my updating, my macbook crashed a week ago so I've been having technical difficulties trying to sort that out! (you wouldn't believe how many problems I've had with it over the last 2 years!) Imagine life without a computer (makes it hard to do school work/NO new TV shows/movies/internet/skype/facebook...list goes on!) Makes you really realize how much we rely on technology today. Especially difficult when I'm not in my home country.  I would die if I didn't have my blackberry or it'd be zero contact with the outside world!
