The Queen of Tarts in Dublin, which has two locations, has become famous for their good food, amazing cakes, beautiful atmosphere and sweet atmosphere. But next door the the Cow’s Lane Queen of Tarts is an inconspicuous looking restaurant called La Dolce Vita. There is nothing striking about it’s exterior next to the bright red busy-ness of Queen of Tarts, but as soon as you walk in the door it smells like great Italian cheese and home and it’s laid back, the staff are chilled out in a way that makes you feel totally at home there and you will wonder how you weren’t always here.
So on my adventures through Asian, Indian and Vintage online stores to see what they’ve got that our high street stores haven’t, i found some deadly stuff. Bought some and the rest i’m just gonna pop on here in case someone else can get the joy outta them. I will never claim to know anything about fashion, but stuff that makes me go “oooohh”, is possibly worth sharing. Go get yo-self some bargain on. And have a good week. Links to the products are below the image.

Kilkenny is one of Ireland’s oldest cities and thus settled comfortable home to culture, history and a great arts scene. It is definitely more a crafts arts scene than a contemporary arts scene but it has it’s moments for that too, especially at the Kikenny Arts Festival which runs every August and is well worth checking out. (Bring / borrow / rent a car if you’re going to this as there’s usually stuff all over Kilkenny county as well as in the town centre and it can be a great adventure.)

I also like Vignette as a photo tool for android if you don’t feel like getting all social media about it.
My sister came home laughing but very disappointed last week after attempting to order a flat white somewhere.
“A flat white….?”, was the response to her order, wondering what it was that she wanted flat and white. A table? A plate? She didn’t order a coffee here, knowing that if they didn’t even know what it was, there was no way they were going to get it right.
