Summer of Photos

So between getting my masters in NUIG, and going to San Francisco to visit my kick ass family over there.... My summer has been pretty amazing.

But although my summer was great, my love for my home town of Galway has remained constant throughout it all. I've been spending a lot of time walking and taking pictures of Galway on some of the warmest and prettiest days of the year. And it really is one of the most beautiful places to live, (when the weather is good, of course.)

 From walks in Dangan to walks in the forest by my house, it's been a Summer of photographs.... all of which were taken on my iPhone.

 Walks on the Salthill prom.....

 Blackrock Diving Bords.... three height, and I'm sorry to say I've never jumped off any of them.

 The colours of Spanish Arch when the tide is out.

 Of course, it wouldn't be a Galway summer, without a panoramic picture of The Galway Races.

 Through the window look at Quay Street, right in the middle of Galway city.... love the colours.
 My Uncle and cousin, gearing up to jump from the top diving bord.... Miss them!

 Randomer and their complete lack of fear, love it!!

 Street view of Quay Street, Galway.

 The Claddagh's view of the Spanish Arch.
 Beer Garden of O'Connoll's pub in Eyre Sq... This photo was taken in the middle of September.
The Lone Ranger.

And of course, it wouldn't be a photographic Summer scrapbook without the one lil man who's legs I've walked off him.... Up close and personal with my Simba.... love that lil guy.


Burberry's Blanket Shawl

So this is the must have item in every celebrity and socialites wardrobe this AW. When the models walked the runway in the show each with their own customised shawl, everyone watching was shouting for one of their own.... And ever since the show, celebrities are all following suit and getting their own Burberry blanket shawl.

Each celeb wears it so differently.... One person to first rock it outside the runway was Olivia Palmero- who wore it amazingly with these knee high boots and tweed shorts which only accentuated the colours in the shawl

Cara looked stunning on the Burberry runway, where she was lucky enough to lead the final walk of the show.

Sookie Waterhouse, wore hers with these black cigarette pants and pointed nude heels... Looked fab!! And over that great bottle green trench coat, she really knows how to work it.

And of course, Rosie walked out in her knee highs and that killer red soles. Pair it with the fedora and it really does make the outfit.... Everything she wears is casual yet chic.

Sarah Jessica Parker, was the most recent celebrity to show her face in this amazing shawl, and she, as always looked stunning.

Although the palette of the shawl is perfect the way it is, the initials on the edges give it the 'oomph' that makes it so fabulous. The autumnal palette features all the best colours for this season. And the boxy details are simple yet understated just enough to give it that desirable "I must have that right now" feeling.

Ooooooh I want it soooo soooo much, but it might just be a lil out of my price range.
