I love my day job, this makes three months holiday in the Summer a bonus for me because I genuinely like what I do. Three months seems like an incredibly long time to be off work but by God do those months go fast. It’s important to, outside of a booked/planned holiday, set a few goals, make a little list of must-dos. Keith and I have always made a Summer List and we exchange them the weekend we get our holidays. It’s exciting to have some cool stuff to look forward to and writing them down prevents me from getting lazy. I thought I’d share my Summer to-do with you…
1. Leisurely picnic at Dublin Zoo.
I’m not the biggest fan of the Zoo. But it’s seems when we go, we rush from place to place. We keep going non-stop. This Summer I’m going to plan a picnic, take lots of coffee and ice-cream stops and try to fall in love with the Zoo like Tom.
2. Perfect some home-made Iced Lattes.
I love cold coffee (it has to be ice-cold) it’s so refreshing on a hot day and is it just me or does it give more of a kick!
3. Take the Glasnevin Cemetery tour.
We recently spent an hour in Glasnevin for a student’s presentation. In that time I scoped out the museum and obviously the coffee shop. It looks like an awesome day trip.
4. Take the Open top bus around Dublin.
For as long as this bus is running, I’ve talked about taking the tour. Any city break I’ve ever done, I’ll always try and take it. (Particularly the uptown and downtown NYC).
5. Model’s own ‘Beach bag’.
This gorgeous neon polish has been top of my wishlist for weeks. The fabulous Lily Pebbles models it here so well. It’s meant to enhance your tan. It’s a sneaky little polish but the hunt continues. It will be mine.
6. Outdoor poker night.
I love poker. I love playing outdoors during the Summer months. The best part is the dim lighting and the eventual chill that makes you rush inside to grab a snugly cardigan.
7.Ice-cream at the beach.
Over Easter, Tom had his first (baby)99 at the beach in Kilmore, Wexford. I’m planning another this Summer.
8.Mexican date night.
Keith and I both love Mexican food. We had Mexican on our first date. It was washed down with Corona. The Summer calls for ice cold margaritas and strappy shoes…
9. Orange is the new black.
I devoured the first season of this show and I’m so excited to catch up with season two on the 6th of June.
10.Butler’s Chocolate Experience.
It’s a chocolate factory… They give you chocolate Do I need to say more?…eh No!
