Favourites on Friday…#3.38!

I’ve been a very bad blogger! I picked up laryngitis and half way through the week I felt more Zombie than human. I spent Thursday and Friday taking painkillers for my throat and downing cans of monster as a pick me up to finish the work day. Unfortunately I missed events and meetings but I got through the day job and welcomed the weekend with open arms.  This little Kate Spade watch was the Kildare Village find of the year! It will have its own story soon. Keith and I went to the launch of the limited edition Hennessy Cognac bottle. It was in Pygmalion on Tuesday and we had a lot of fun.  Ah Starbucks, with the Autumn comes the Pumpkin Spice… roll on Winter I say!  The Hennessy ‘Muse’ was delicious!  Pretty flowers always get my vote!  I change my bag at least once a week and to be honest when I do, I fall in love all over again. The Céline Nano Luggage is a fantastic cross body bag. It’s dinky in size but holds so much. I’m off to my nephew, Max’s, sixth Birthday party tomorrow. Have a restful and enjoyable Sunday.

Favourites on Friday… #3.37.

WOW where do I begin with this week. The last two weeks I haven’t stopped and I feel so tired…to be fair it’s the good kind of tired. But it’s been busy and exciting. 

This week, the Junior Cert results came out, I couldn’t have been happier with the four classes I had and their results.  Wednesday was one of those days that makes teaching easy. I also had a few events on and some exciting blog news that I’ll share with you all soon. For Culture Night we toured Teelings Distillery.  I’d like to say next week will bring more of a rest but it’ll be a busy one too.  I attended a Clarins Masterclass with Simone Colombo, who can we just say is a genius.  We were treated like royalty and look how stunning the models finished look was. We were spoiled with goodies to recreate the look in a Goodie bag.  Still my favourite makeup look this year, Becky is a genius and I can’t wait for her to do my makeup again. You can find all her details in last week’s post!  These whiskey cocktails in Teelings Distillery were delicious.  They were so delicious, it turns out I like any whiskey cocktail… The distillery was very cool, the space is so modern in design. We loved it. We are attending our first Saturday morning soccer camp with Tom. Have a lovely weekend.

Closing time at Jameson’s…

Well for now! 

Keith randomly entered a competition on Joe.ie and the prize was…‘A tour of Jameson’s Distillery’ and guess what? He won.

 Keith is a massive whiskey fan. I am now a massive whiskey fan and trolling Joe.ie daily for competitions to win. Because let me tell ya… They know how to run a competition. 

The prize was phenomenal. We had to meet at 5pm on George’s street. We had drinks in a secret bar. The entrance was through a shop front and downstairs to a basement. Coolest. Bar. Ever.  I have no words to describe how cool this bar was. The decor was Irish and transported us back in time.  We drank Whiskey Sours and nibbled on some olives. I loved them. They’re my new favourite cocktail. From our secret location we were ferried to Mulligans in Stoneybatter. The food there is nothing short of spectacular… If you like scotch eggs, you need to go there and have this starter.  We truly were spoiled with delicious food and yummy whiskey aperitifs. We had no idea, what was to come.  We hadn’t been told that our guides around the distillery would be the Master Distiller and Master Cooper of the company. What impressive gentlemen they were. It’s hard not to be in awe when you witness master-craftsmen at work.   We had such an amazing night. The winners are invited back for the opening party at St. Patrick’s Day weekend. They also were given a bottle of twelve year old whiskey with their names on. I highly recommend Mulligan’s Bar & Restaurant in Stoneybatter. Have you tried it?
