Lovely trip to Paris

I have been dying to post these picture from our oh-so-lovely trip to Paris. I just had to get them from my camera to my computer. Sometimes that is SO hard! But alas...

 Shameless tourists at the Eiffel Tower

 The River Seine from "Lock" Bridge

Louvre Museum

(Their menu is an actual book. I had to refrain myself from slipping it into my bag its so lovely!)

 Some of my favorite store fronts
How dangerous are those apartments above Prada?!

And my Instagrams from Paris:
Ladurée stop & Eiffel Tower view from dinner

Such a dreamy trip! Thank you to the bird for being the best hubs a girl could ask for.

If you find yourself Paris bound, let me know! I'm happy to give you a list of places we went!

*All images taken by yours truly

Chambray Chic

I have a couple Chambray tops and I always find myself doubting what to pair them with and how to wear them. Thank goodness for Pinterest and all the lovely inspiration to get me dressed! :)

Here are a few Chambray Chic ideas in case you're ever in the same boat:

I've finally got it together over here and will post Paris pics tomorrow!

Trends of 2013

I didn't have the privilege of going to Fashion Week... I swear, one day! But I picked up the gist of a couple trends for 2013 surfing around the web: neon, white polish & pink lips.

I need to get busy! I love all the pink and the white nails are so chic!

Zara home

Have I been in the clouds... or is Zara home collection new? It is possible that I've gotten lost in my love of their clothes that I completely over looked their home store.

If so, I am catching up now. And over-the-moon excited about their home decor!

Their collection is fabulous. So modern and stylish.

And also a touch of Z Gallerie, equally fantastic.

Lovely Layers

I am thankful for Friday today!

I battled with a horrible bug this week and happy that behind me for this weekend!

I am linking up with Long Distance Loving today for some 'lovely layers:'

I am all about layers here in Ireland. And I'm pretty sure I need this vest in my life!

This weekend we busy bees... including our first rugby game: Ireland v. England! We will be a little lost since we have yet to understand all the rules, but its suppose to be the game to go to. So either way, it should be a fun time! Any fun weekend plans to share?

Have a fabulous weekend! Xo

How to verify your website on Pinterest

I found myself knee-deep, trying to figure out how to verify my website on Pinterest this morning. And after I figured it out, I decided to post an easy, no-coding-expertise needed tutorial on it. There are plenty of tutorials out there and you may have already figured it out, so you are way ahead of me!
But here is a quick and easy tutorial for blogger users if you need it:

• Go to your Pinterest page and click on the drop down menu to Settings
• Scroll down to the option: Verify Website
• Once the pop up shows, I opted to click the Meta Tag option. (Instead of downloading HTML)
• Copy the Meta Tag (in the gray box)

Next you will want to log into your blogger account:

• Find your design page, which should bring you to a page that looks like this:
• Select 'Template' and 'Edit HTML'
          (As a disclaimer, I always copy & paste my HTML code into TextEdit before altering it.)
• Find your </head> tag- closing header tag
          (You can select Command/Ctrl F to search for it if you can't find it.)
• Then paste your Meta Tag right above: </head>
• Click Preview to make sure your blog still looks the same, then Save

Return back to Pinterest and select "Click here to complete the process."

You should be able to return to your Pinterest profile page and see the happy red check mark next to your website! :)
If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment or email me. I am no expert and am no sort of coder, but I will certainly try and help.
