Dublin Trip // My Travel Essentials

Taken from Favim
After my ever looming exams, at the end of July, my lovely friends and I have planned ourselves a girly trip down to Dublin on the 25th to the 28th as a post exam treat.

So for my trip to Dublin with my crazy bunch of friends I unfortunately will be getting the train down by myself on the 26th, due to prior commitments. The journey itself  roughly takes about 2 hours, sitting for 2 solid hours in those chairs on the train isn't the most fun or comfortable situation. 
So these are my on-the-move / travel essentials that I will be bringing in my bag or will fit in my handbag to make the journey more comfortable, fun and hopefully make the train journey not feel as long and lonely. 
I'm not good for sitting for long periods of time I can be quite fidgety..

What will I be taking?

*You never know when you'll need them
  • Ipod fully charged & full of great summery songs/playlists - Dublin won't require depressing music!
  • Magazines & Books/Kindle - depending on what book I'm reading at the time, either from my book list or other.
  • Deodorant/ body spray or perfume - for freshening up (small spaces can be very warm)
  • Mints or chewing gum!
  • Bottled water 
  • Pain Killers
  • Snacks such as fruit, sweets, Diet Coke or coffee (Does Caffè Nero stay open past 5??)
  • Plasters
  • Hand Sanitizer*
  • Hand Cream
  • My camera - for OOTD's, about the trip etc
  • Sunglasses - for possibly tired looking eyes on the way back due to hangovers xD
  • A Hair and Outfit Protector aka a Mini Umbrella - in case of emergency rainfall.
  • Small amount of cash* - in both currencies ( Pounds £ and Euros  )
  • Notebook and pen*
  • My friends to help pass the time & to play entertainment monkeys during the  journey,  I demand it of them! This no longer applies. :/
          Update: Turns out a friend of mine will be coming down to Dublin later with me so I do have an entertainment monkey!
  • Roomy bag for my clothes & things- something thats practical and comfortable but still looks cute

This is slightly random.. but traveling via train ever since my friend Debra showed me the film 'Before Sunrise' always makes me kinda wish I'll have a Jesse and Céline moment. 

Do you kinda wish that too or is that just me?..

I'll do a post on all the clothes/shoes/makeup etc I'm bringing closer to the times as well as a post on the trip when I get back and my normal posts I usually blog!

Eye Candy // Robert Sheehan

The talented, charming Irish actor most known for his roles in Red Riding, Me and Mrs Jones, for hilariously playing Nathan Young in the hit show Misfits and for his next starring movie role as Simon Lewis in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
 I can't help but love him.

I ♥ Spring

I have once again been AWOL on the blogging front, as soon as we got off for the Easter Holidays/ Half Term/ Spring Break whatever you refer to it as, I got sick, on and off for the whole 2 weeks and I'm still feeling quite dodgy :/ 
Doctor's tomorrow because of it, yay....
I was also helping at a kids club when I was feeling well enough and my free time was then spent on art/ revision if it was possible, so I have been just a little preoccupied.
Now since the snow has finally completely vanished and Spring has actually decided to pop its head out at long last, well not over the past couple of days but still I thought it would be fun to do the I ♥ Spring Tag that has been so popular on the vlog/blogasphere.
I previously did a post like this in Autumn, which you can also check out here.

1. Favorite spring nail polish?
