Thursday Things

Hey all!

I thought I'd share some photos of things that surround my desk, and my new lippie!


My cork board full of thank you notes, postcards and concert tickets


My dad got me this calender ornament in Germany


These butterfly decorations were from the window display in work




My Smiths poster from the Smiths Singles collection box Donnacha got me one year for my birthday


A map of Firenze, one of my favourite cities


My Delightful Dozen calender


The background on my desktop, I assume you can guess what it's from


My new lipstick 'Kiss Me Coral' by Revlon. I've been meaning to get this shade for a while and I love it, it's so summery!



I'm working my way through ER season 10


Burt's Bees Body Lotion I got for Christmas, it's so glittery!


Kiss Me Coral!

On a more sombre note, we had an incident in our family yesterday and it really shook us all up. I can't really go into details because I don't think it would be fair for my family and it's not really my place to say anything but I just want to take this opportunity to ask for your thoughts and prayers (if that's your thing) especially for my mother who has been badly affected by this incident and needs some love sent her way. I'm sorry to be so cryptic, but I'm sure you understand that there are just some things you can't go into detail about on such a public forum.

I hope you're all having a better week than me! My week has flown by and we've been so busy in work. We also got paid a day early so I treated myself to a couple of online purchases which I'm sure I will share with you at some stage!

It's almost the weekend,

Have a good one!

  1. Yes, of course your mother and your family are in my thoughts and prayers, Emma. I don't need to know any details. Life is filled with ups and downs and if it helps any of your loved ones to know that Shady cares then I am very happy to be of service. On a cheerier subject I love that calendar ornament of yours and your new shade of lipstick is indeed very exciting! Good night to you in Dublin, dear friend!

  2. i love your cork board filled with little mementos, I need one like that in my office space. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts, sending you and your mama positive vibes via the internet

  3. LOVE the desktop picture, totally.

  4. I don't really do prayers but my best thoughts are with your family, Emma. I know just what you mean - I have some family stuff going on that I don't want to share on my blog, but also don't really want to hide. I think it's good to put it out there that you've got stuff going on, though - support comes from all sorts of places x

  5. so fun! thanks for the sneak peek :) it's always fun to get a glimpse of your blog friends daily life and surroundings. the smiths poster is quite rad, i must say! xoxo

  6. Dear Emma, you have a lovely blog, so it's a pleasure to leave comments!!!You're so sweet!

  7. I've been eyeing some Revlon shades lately and I am completely sold with your colour! I probably might get it now :)

    You have some very nice things in your room, I especially love the calender from Germany, it's so sweet and different.

    Also, sending my love for your mother, hope what is affecting your family passes soon!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate every single one!
