Dumplings... To celebrate my dad getting out of hospital, we took a trip to our favourite Chinese. Located off O'Connell Street in Dublin, M&L is probably the most authentic Chinese in the city and that's proven by how many native Chinese people eat there. I go at least once a month and the best dishes are those that are not on the menu. The Double Cooked Pork Belly and Harbour Prawns are particular favourites but, we revisited their dumplings this weekend and holy shit are they amazing. 10/10...highly recommend!
Making Progress... I mentioned in a This Week post a while ago that I had been working hard to get my body in check for summer. This week, I hit some milestones as I am down 5kg/11lb, have lost over 8 inches overall and, based on my own measurements, am down 2-3 bra sizes! I'm delighted and so motivated to keep going. #highfatFTW
Sunglasses... Since getting my eyes lasered, I have become obsessed with sunglasses. I always had a lot of pairs but, could only ever wear them on days where I pre-empted the sun and wore contacts. Now I wear them almost every single day and, this week, Kev and I took advantage of Brown Thomas' Buy One Get One 50% Off deal and each got a new pair of sunnies. I have had my eye on these black-on-black Ray Ban Aviators for the longest time and I adore them.
