Giant's Causeway Photo Diary

And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had the familiar conviction that life was beginning again with the summer. 

I sound poetic don't I? Well, that's because I didn't write the above sentence. It is a quote from F. Scott Fitzgerald's  book called "The Great Gatsby". I quoted that because I think it kind of go well along with this post. Northern Ireland's Summer 2015 has been dreadful and whenever it's sunny, my parents and I are either stuck at work or just exhausted. 

However, the day when we went to Giant's Causeway was different; we were all energised and the giant spotlight in the sky was out. But to be honest, we just planned to go to Portstewart Beach on that day and going to Giant's Causeway just kind of happened unexpectedly. 

I got a chance to climb up a mini-mountain (is there such thing?) well, it wasn't a hill either (or was it?) I don't know how to define it but my dad, my brother and I climbed it up anyway- I climbed it wearing a maxi dress. It wasn't scary but it was heart-pounding but, that didn't matter because my goal was to climb to the top.

As I am writing what I experienced right now, I just realised that no matter how terrifying the journey is in life, it wouldn't matter especially if you are focused and well-determined of your goals.

Ivory Restaurant | Alice in Wonderland in Victoria Square

"But, my dear, this is not Wonderland and you are not Alice." 

That is just a quote that I know off by heart from the famous novel called Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, which was written by and English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll in 1865. We can learn more about the novel, of course, but this post is not about the novel- this is about the wonderful day that I had with my friends/squad. 

Reyn, Ellaine and I arrived at around 4pm so went to Starbucks first to wait for Kaye as she finished worked at 5pm. After that, we toured around Victoria Square, where a lot of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland were set. (you will see the photos later in this post) We were going to go to Prezzo, however, Reyn decided to go to Ivory Restaurant, which is located at the top of House of Fraser in Victoria Square; so we did.



The Balcony in Ivory. How chic is that?

I really had a good time. I haven't seen these girls for months because I was over in England and everyone of us seemed to be busy. It was a great day for catching up and the weather had been good to us. 

I had a great time because It was my first time to go on a train without my parents! I was basically a grown adult on that day. Anyway, hope you enjoyed this post. 

Take care.

Night Time Skin Care Routine | Spring Edition





Hello, lovesydaixies! I'm back with another blogpost. It's been ages since I did a skin care routine. This skin care, as what you've read from the title is a spring edition. I have a combination skin which means that in some areas my skin is dry and sensitive while it's oily on my T-zone. Without going any further, here goes my routine.
