I made it!

24 September 2009



Walking through Merrion Square, where the Oscar Wilde Museum is






In front of Merrion Square


Pretty flowers in Merrion Square



In front of Oscar Wilde's old home


cute cafe where we had lunch



My first topshop experience hehe (I'm a nerd for taking a photo, I know)



First topshop purchases! (soon to come)


gorgeous sunset over River Liffy

Say hello to uber-tourist Bonnie. I can't help myself... I feel the need to photograph
everything! I'm in Dublin and really loving this city. Aside from these places pictured
above, I've been to the Ireland museum of art, National Ireland history museum,
The book of Kell museum, Dublin castle, shopped Grafton street, a Ghost tour, Pubs, parks and
more that I can't remember (or might have been too jet-lagged to remember). This
little holiday in Ireland (I've figured out that people here call it holiday
not vacation hehe) has been nice so far. Tomorrow it's castles all day long.

Wearing this simple outfit with comfortable shoes today was definitely a great
choice. I walked around SO much today. My feet feel like they are going
to fall off despite these comfy flats I wore. The fashion here is so inspiring,
I'm always walking around wide-eyed. Hopefully I don't look like a wierdo.

Anyways... more updates to come soon hopefully! i'll be here in Dublin
until Monday. Then it's off to London. ^_^

wearing: target cardigan; f21 tank; aldo flats; nordstrom tights, scarf.

Have an amazing time! I got back from 6 months in Oxford a few months ago, and I miss it every single day. Dublin is fantastic and London is my favorite city in the whole world.. While you're there, please be sure to pop over to Oxford, and give The Rose tearoom on High Street a huge hug for me. You're going to have a blast!
