Keeping Up With Karen…

Keeping Up With Karen

Isn’t it funny how your mind set changes once a new season starts to creep in? Although the good-old Irish weather enjoys clinging onto winter for as long as possible, it’s by no means dampening my craving for spring to firmly take the reigns. Even when browsing the shelves of polishes yesterday (on a girly afternoon of retail fun with Em’s) my eyes were excitedly drawn from my beloved dark plum shades and straight to bright pastels & pretty pinks. However my most exciting find was during a rummage through last years handbag on Friday evening, when I stumbled across my sunglasses *happy sigh* It was like meeting an old friend… and we’re currently in the process of setting an immediate date for a catch up! Bring on the sunshine 😉

So as I sip my coffee whilst watching the birds fluttering around the back garden this morning, I’m looking at a partially blue sky and keeping hopeful for a few rays to peek through as I paint my nails pastel pink and polish my sunglasses in anticipation. My craving to perch myself in the back garden with a few of my favourite glossy magazines is becoming an obsession! Talking of reading, if you’re in the mood for a some blogging eye candy then why not check out what shenanigans we’ve been up to on Confetti & Curves this week…

  1. Oooh that sounds lovely to paint your nails a pastel pink. I bet they’ll look divine! What magazines are you reading? Or are they called Glossy? Happy Sunday!! I hope it’s a nice one for both of us! It’s been raining like no other. I literally was hibernating in bed most of the day because of the cold and gloom and doom weather. Xoxo
