Day out in Dublin

I’ve been a little down lately to say the least and my beloved hubby took me to Dublin at the weekend as a little pick me up. We had a wonderful day, fabulous dinner and I got to pick up a few bits I had been after!

The first place we stopped was to the MAC counter in Arnotts. After getting the Viva Glam Taraji P Henson lipstick I really really wanted to Lipglass to match.

I ordered the lipstick on the MAC UK website the day it was released…. so excited for this lipstick. It arrived during the week which took ages!! As soon as I tried it on I knew I wanted the gloss too!

Aren’t they purty! I will do a blog post on these soon to show you just how fabulous these shades are!

No trip to Dublin would be complete without a trip to Lush…. nom! We picked up my husbands favourite soap, my favourite hand cream and a little something new!

Sexy Peel is my husbands favourite soap in the world so when we head to Dublin we always stock up. I think the guy in the shop though we were mad buying this much but hey… He’s worth it!

I actually haven’t tried that many products from Lush but I just fell in love with this little guy. This is Scrubee and it smells divine! I haven’t used it yet because I wanted to take these photos and it has been killing me.

And lastly Charity Pot. I love this hand cream! It smells amazing and it is extremely moisturising. The only thing I will say is that it takes an age to dry in so I usually reserve this for before bed. Added benefit I smell fab-u-lous going to bed.

And then there was dinner….. We are hard core Hard Rock fans. We have eaten in Hard Rocks in 4 European cities and 3 American States along with staying in the Hard Rock Hotel in Orlando. We love the place! Anyway while in the big city with hit up the Dublin Cafe.

We started with my favourite Tupelo tenders which were fantastic as usual, albeit a bit smaller than most of the other Cafes we’ve eaten in.

My main was the Big Texan. I fricken love this, pulled pork with crispy onions, jalapeno and buckets of cheese. I couldn’t eat the chips I was so full after the burger. It was pretty good but slightly lacking on the sauce unfortunately but hey I still ate it!

I didn’t eat for about 24 hours after this. So worth it though.

So that was our fabulous day out. I had such a nice day and can’t wait for our next trip to the big smoke!

Thanks for reading
