Last week I reached out to the Snapchat fam feeling a little lost for inspiration & asking for suggestions on blog post topics, ones that would really add value to your lives (ok, perhaps a liiiittle ambitious but maybe add value to your day!?).

A few suggestions came up time & time again; one being to offer alternative suggestion for celebrating special occasions so, to honor those suggestions I’ve researched my top 14 things to do for valentines day this year without a cramped restaurant or greasy man selling roses in sight… enjoy!! x

1.

Experience the mind blowing acoustics of Christ Church Cathedral with Micheal McHale’s Beethoven Moonlight Sonata by candlelight; sit under the vaulted ceilings & enjoy how epic classical music sounds played out on a piano in a moonlit cathedral. One to remember!

2.

Make the most of the slightly brighter evenings by throwing together a picnic & hitting the Iveagh Gardens for a romantic date. A flask of hot whiskey & plenty of snuggling will ward off any potential chill 😉

3.

Hit up Bray bowl for some BYO bowling followed by an epic pizza feast in Platform Pizza… my kind of date!

4.

Head to The Sugar Club for a screening of what is arguably the best movie of all time: True Romance. They have a special screening for the night that’s in it & a full bar on offer.

Get down to Trinity’s Science Gallery for a varied Valentine’s night as Scientific Sue leads a tongue-in-cheek approach to explaining the chemistry of love in this entertaining and humorous show.

‘Lubricate yourself with a complimentary glass of Prosecco and let Sue enlighten you about the more interesting aspects of the central science in her Blumenthalesque style’.

7.

Be dedicated tourists for the day by visiting the Guinness Storehouse, taking a horse & trap into town then hitting up some Temple bar pubs & finishing with a Ukulele Tuesday performance in The Stag’s Head

Head to Thomas street for a Songs For Lovers night– The Charlie Moon Band taking on the back catalogue of one of jazz music’s all time greats, Chet Baker, during a very special evening of Songs for Lovers.

9.

Splash out on one of Dublin’s most epic dining experiences & book in to The Chef’s table in Chapter One… a meal like no other with the secluded table adding an intimacy you’re very unlikely to get in another restaurant on February 14th!

10.

Hit the Dart with a bottle of vino… or two (as Caughal says ‘its better to be looking at it than looking for it’) & head to Dun Laoghaire. Once there invest in some deliciously steamy bags of chips & hit the harbour for the a fun date with a twist.

Find a spot to dangle your legs & let the conversation flow as easily as the wine. Eagle eyes will notice that I’ve previously suggested doing this in my ‘Dublin Micro Adventures’ post but its too good not to suggest here as well… I love this date!

11.

Head to the cinema… with a twist. If you’re a true cinema fan but don’t fancy straining over the smooching sounds to hear the lines then Brook’s Private Cinema is the answer to your prayers… a far more intimate setting for a far more intimate feel 🙂

12.

Hit The Hideout for some competitive fun & avail of their BYO offer (€5 PP) to take it up a notch… that expensive vino will ease the pain of loosing, promise! The, once you’ve had your fill of pool head next door to the back of Kokoro where they serve the most epic ramen with lots of secluded booths where you can make up & make out.

13.

Brush up on some new talents with Carla Dal Forno’s debut Irish performance happening in The Grand Social.

If a datytime date is more your scene why not rent a tandem bike in the Phoenix Park and explore the ground with the one you love? Because nothing says I love you more than impractical shared commitment!

     Well, the day has finally come where I've ran out of stock for my Depop shop With over 200 things sold in the last year it's safe to say it's been the perf way for me to pass beautiful pieces on as well as a great way for you lovely peeps to shop my looks (check today's snaps to see what my wardrobe looks like now icomeundone). As a small thank you to everyone who bought from me I'm offering two for one on all remaining stock INCLUDING combined shipping for the next 48hrs so, make sure to grab an absolute bargain before everything's gone!!  I'll be writing a post on my top tips for selling on Depop this week so, if you're looking to do a spring clean keep an out of for that xx (Depop username: icomeundone)  This time four yeas ago I returned from an epic round-the-world trip travelling 14 countries with 3 friends over 2 years  ✈️... although I'm not a 'quote person' this reminds me of the idea that "happiness is where you find it but rarely where you seek it" because, at 24 years old & 18 months out of college it as a conscious decision to invest in travelling the world over blowing the money in Dublin on new clothes & nights out . This decision was to be the greatest of my 20s, even more important I feel that getting my degree . The cultures we experienced, the crazy adventures we had, all left a lifelong impression on me meaning that in India, the second quote from the trip came about when I got a lady to freehand a tattoo on me symbolising "if you never jump, you'll never fly" It was truly a trip of a lifetime, I couldn't recount all of the adventures to you if we sat & had coffee for a week but, the memories it gave me, the confidence and, the idea that things will always work out are the greatest gifts I could've ever given myself, reminding me forever of the following: "don't spend your life searching for a place to call home, let the bones of your skeleton be the only structure you need" Trust yourself, rely on yourself & the rest my friends, will fall into place . Have a great wkend everyone, hope you enjoyed the quotes as much as I do ❤️❤️ (If you wanna hear a select few of some of my wild & woeful tales from my adventures travelling click the link in my bio to read that part of my 7-part travel series I did around this trip on the blog  xx)  Boho elements making a very welcome reappearance into my wardrobe as the summer comes closer ☀️  Looking for last minute plans for this evening?

     Gorgeous brunch in @thecafe105 at the weekend serving up delicious classics & epic indulgent dishes ... keep an eye for the full review in this month's food post (which already has 6 brand new places to share with you guys ) Hope everyone had a good one xx  I've finished my course of laser skin treatment with the lovely @eavannabreen, so happy with the improved texture of my skin (as shown here in an accidental but half decent taxi selfie ). We've now moved on to a course of Venus Freeze to banish a pocket of cellulite on my upper thighs ❄️... thankfully I'm not too affected by celulite but, like a lot of gals, an improvement on the tone & apperance of my thighs would be a welcome improvement ... especially with two March getaways booked ✈️. I'll be back in for another treatment next Wednesday so, if you're considering Venus freeze & would like to know more about the process or, want to treat an area of cellulite but not sure where to start make sure to keep an eye on my Snapchat where I'll be sharing the process & results icomeundone  This one won't make it into February's food post as,despite the food being pretty epic, the service was terrible ... any place that makes it onto the blog has to be a great all rounder so that you guys can trust it as the site to use before booking anywhere in Dublin .
