Lusting Teapot Bags

While over in London, I came across a new brand that really grabbed me. Such detailed classic designs caught my eye initially but what really made myself and my lovely friend Orla fall in love with these bags was the quality. You really have to see them to understand. I've no doubt these would age really well. I'm torn between two favourites; the beautiful satchel with the antique andean cloth or the practical suede leather backpack. As I was delighted to come across this relatively low profile brand, I thought I'd like to share it with my readers. The Teapot Tree works closely with the most skillful artisian around the world to create these beautiful bags. Here are a few of my favourites. 

Practical Suede & Leather Backpack
Small Special Leather Handbag
 Stylish Embossed Leather Handbag
 Satchel with Antique Andean Cloth
 Exclusive Handmade Leather Satchel/Briefcase

Major Crush On A Skirt

If you see it on in the shop, decide you'll leave it and have a proper think and then keep thinking about it 2 weeks later, it means go treat yourself in my book. However, don't you hate when you finally decide to go buy it, only to find its out of stock in the first store you try. You'd think that I would think it's not meant to be.  Not on this occasion though, I think it means I'm on a mission.

My Crush (aka the lovely skirt): Zara

Scarf Inspired Blazer

How are you feeling about the scarf print trend? I for one am welcoming the great patterns. This scarf print blazer is one of my recent purchases. I came across it while I was looking for a skirt - always the way! I fell in love with the print and colour, especially with the flicker of gold through it as it. The cut really is fantastic. I just know I'm going to get plenty of wear out of it which is the main thing. I really dressed it down here as I was just about to pop out for a bagel for brunch.
Blazer: Zara. Jumper: Topshop. T-shirt: H&M. Jeans: Topshop. Wedges: Pennys

The food was delicious and I thought the decor was very fun and playful so I took some pictures to share with you. The patchwork furniture was so eye-catching and warm. You might not think anything of the chairs at first glance until I tell you they were above my head on the ceiling. How quirky is that? Lets hope they are well bolted in. The lights were very cute as each one had a saucer and china cup of some sort as a shade, all in varying designs and shapes. Between the food, decor and great service, I think I found my new spot. 
Happy Monday!

Let The Good Times Roll

Some fun snaps from Instagram the last 2 weeks. We went rollerblading in the Phoenix Park and ate some delicious ice-creams. It was like a trip down memory lane on the rollerblades. They weren't mine but I had so much fun on them that I went and bought myself a pair last week. When I went back to the park yesterday, I saw lots of deer and what I beautiful sight it was. The flowers were a lovely surprise from my wonderful boyfriend - no reason surprise flowers are the best kind aren't they!?

Hope you're having a lovely weekend!
