I bought myself some Easter candy today. They're not egg-shaped, but they'll tide me over until we go to the US and my parents bring me some! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DON'T FORGET!!!

Low tide on the Liffey. Stinky.

This cat LOVES plastic bags! She licks them, rubs them, claws at them, then climbs inside it to hang out.

I was in the bedroom today and saw a young boy outside pointing at one of the posters on the wall across the street. I was curious what the sign was for and sweet motherload KISS is coming to Dublin!!!

I made some chocolate stout cupcakes today (they're not frosted yet). The recipe called for Guinness, but this Corkonian household drinks Beamish!

The famine statues on the quays. I find them incredibly haunting. They're 'walking' towards the end of the quays where the ships would have been moored.

I've started doing an oil cleansing method for cleaning my face at night. I use 25% castor oil and 75% olive oil. I would have used regular old EVOO, but then I found this 'medicinal' olive oil at Boots. It was fairly cheap, so I picked some up. Last night was the first night and so far so good! I thought I'd wake up all greasy, but that wasn't the case at all!

The in laws came to Dublin for the day and we headed to the zoo. The poor kid wanted to see the 'King Lion' so bad and they didn't have one. He was not impressed by the female lion at all.

Best. Bread. Ever! There's condensation on it because it was still warm when I bought it. Yum!

Wes thinks she's spoiled. Whatever.

Some of the famous English Snowdrops that are out at this time of year!

I met some old work colleagues for lunch. Ben got a chicken pitta with a side of chicken. He thought the presentation could have been better....

I wasn't allowed to take a picture of David Sedaris, so I took one of Helen, Emma, and a very pensive-looking guy in the background.

The green jacket was out, which could only mean one thing - job interview. And no, I couldn't take my earphones out for a few seconds just to get the picture. I was listening to The Cadets!

I love you, Dave Matthews Band.

My camera has died and I have no batteries, so instead of not posting a picture, I decided to take an old picture and have fun with the photo editor!

After a really nice day out in Howth (pictures here), we stepped of the LUAS to find this. Being that today is the first Sunday of the month means that it's horse sale day in Smithfield Square. Gross.

 The weather was gorgeous so we went for a walk around Dublin. This is the Grand Canal at Portobello.

It's warm enough to have the bedroom window open and hopefully air out the germs!

Does a candle make dinner romantic??
