Dublin Zoo

Hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend! I thought I'd share a few pics of what I've been getting up to in the past week since my last post. Apart from working away at my thesis i.e. my final college assignment, I've squeezed in some baking with friends, a day out in Dublin zoo and Phoenix park, watching the whole of series one of Games of Thrones and of course the first episode of the second series (I am addicted thanks to my boyfriend!) and spending time with my family for the long Easter weekend.

Visiting the zoo is one of my favourite things to do when the summer months arrive (bring your student card if you have one Dublin zoo is €15 for adults and €13.50 for students). My favourites are the penguins and the meerkats (I love the compare the meerkat insurance add SIMPLES!). They're opening a new area for lions this summer so I will be back!

Baking brownies with friends so delicious scoffed the lot with some mint icecream, relaxing with my current favourite reads: Glamour mag and A Game of Thrones, is anyone else reading these books, what do you think of the series? My little chocolate Easter bunny from my boyfriend, I can't bring myself to eat him he's just too cute, I've got some other chocolate eggs so he's safe for now anyway :)

My go to outfit at the moment: the ever reliable duffel coat (Dorothy Perkins), floral dress (Primark), fringed boots (River Island) and my new favourite bag. This FCUK bag was a gift I received for my birthday it came as part of a bath and shower set and was crammed full of moisturiser, shower gel, exfoliater and body spray. It's the perfect size for carrying everything I need and I love it's quilted texture.

Happy Easter everyone :)
