Newsround #2

Happy Friday!

I'm having an early Friday night in after a yummmmy meal in CrackBIRD, a pop up restaurant here in Dublin with 'addictive chicken' and sides (the whipped feta & burnt lemon dip is UHmayzing). Loads of plans for the  weekend, but in the meantime, here's a roundup of things that have caught my eye this week and fun events coming up!

The lovely Pearl, from Fashion Pearls of Wisdom, has put together a FREE ebook guide to spotting counterfeit items on ebay and beyond. Anyone that has read her blog will know that she has some amazing vintage finds and a designer wardrobe to make any girl jealous. She shares her Pearls (geddit?!) of wisdom in spotting counterfeit items when buying vintage. This edition features Channel 2.55, Louis Vuitton scarves and Vivienne Westwood. To download, visit Pearl's blog for links to the FREE guide. Did I mention it's free? Well it is.

For the athlete in you that's dying to get out ( i'm sure there's one in me somewhere) Liberty of London have teamed up with Nike to create a range of Liberty print Nike trainers. I was unsure of what the collaboration might be like when I first heard word of it, however the prints are gorgeous and girly, without being over the top. Typically Liberty, they designs are intricate and delicate looking but pack a punch. My favourite design is the second one down in the pictures that follow. Jaime of Boy Meets Fashion got up close & personal to the collection and his lovely pictures are here.

For anyone who, like me, is excited to see Kate Middleton's dress but otherwise isn't too pushed about THE wedding of the year. OR, for anyone that needs to explain to their cynical other half (again, like me) just why it is that they're somewhat excited, The Licentiate has a great post that will give you a very valid reason to list off to those that moan. FINALLY, something he can't answer back to!

THESE, sickeningly, green-eyed-monster inducing photos of Khloe Kardashian's shoe closet. I'm thinking of writing to her & appealing to her humanitarian side...she only has 2  feet and i'm sure she can't be papped in the same pair twice. I just hope she's the same shoe size as me!

A quick reminder for any of you that have the Easter Weekend free from family ties and need some fun for the bank holiday weekend. Absolut Style at Set in lovely Kilkenny is back for it's second year. See my original post here along with info and links for the event itself. I really wish I could go, so ya'll better make up for me not being there!

And this weekend, Sunday to be exact, sees Vintage Ireland's Vintage Fashion & Decor Fair hit Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin. See my original post here. This is one that I will be heading along to and I can't wait to *hopefully* bag myself a vintage treasure! I'll be getting some photos of the day and i'll put some up here for you all to delight over. Also, if we could have some sun for such a great location, that'd be great. 

That's it for now. Again, Happy Friday to all! 

If anyone has anything else to add, please let me know below. 


  1. OMG that closet will be mine!

    Thanks for the tip about Pearl's guide, will check that out now!

    Have a lovely weekend ^_^

    p.s. I thought the Nike x Liberty collaboration would be hideous but I actually love it!

  2. Crackbird is superyum...and love the Liberty and Nike collaboration, but they never fit me properly! PS blog name suggestions: Cat's Meow, Cat's Eye, Kitted out Cat...

  3. Hey, I just wanted to say thank you for mentioning me and my blog. It's greatly appreciated! :]
