Rediscovering Dublin

Finally back to the blogosphere and the amazing blogs I love! I had a month of a busy fun timeno internet at all 😼 Still editing the 1790 pictures taken during the “Rally Holidays” and next week I’ll show where I went. Now, I still had some pics from a month ago around Dublin. Some years ago I was in Dublin twice, but since I’ve moved to the city I’m rediscovering it – cool!

End and beginning of the year pix

A very happy week to everybody and many thanks for the compliments for the way I present my dishes! I had no idea they’d be so appreciated. As a vegetarian since childhood – not approved by my brothers :) – I do have many recipes. I may post some.

On my previous post I wrote that I had some wishes for the year – not resolutions. Resolutions are strong – I end up not accomplishing them. So I said wishes TO EVERYBODY – more fun, more smiles, etc. By fun I posted a “shopping” picture – I was with a dear friend, that’s what I meant. More fun with friends, too.

Now to the Christmas and new year’s pictures – still time to do so, January!

I seldom post about celebrity style, but really, Issa London dresses are so nice (in my opinion). But alas, she has a model figure, everything looks good then. But even on me, I thought the dress was brilliant.

Coat, Have. It was a cold day.

As for the lack of art or DIY now, I end with one of my paintings (2005) to keep me motivated to draw more or create more art – if I can call it so.

Yes, people change, I know I was much thinner - but the same hair always!

A bit erotic pic, I was experimenting styles. I was much thinner – but the same hair always!

Paris wisdom :)

Around a week ago I was in Paris. Maybe after being many times in a place you try to visit different ones, but Paris never bores me. Hopefully I go there 15 more times! :)

I know many of you either live in Paris or visited it many times, or are planning to. Nevertheless, the blog is my diary, so I have to apologize for the amount of pics :)

And finally, it’s now time to wish a Merry Christmas from Paris!

Yeah, one goes to Paris... buys fashion... lives culture... and eat cheese! Joyeuses fĂȘtes

Yeah, one goes to Paris around Christmas… buys fashion… lives culture… and eats cheese! “Everything” had Christmas decoration in it! Joyeuses fĂȘtes!

I also went to MusĂ©e d’Orsay – phenomenal! The city was full of policemen because of the immigrants’ demonstration. I had a great time there again and now I’m dreaming of going back soon!

Thank you for the amazing comments you leave! I really love them!

I hope you all have an amazing week, full of great smiles!
