Valentines Getaway...Amsterdam

Valentines weekend is the perfect weekend to take a city trip with your significant other. Love is in the air and blah, blah, blah..... Anyway's Paris is the main destination for a Valentines weekend city break but I have selected two other European cities that may not feature on the of the romantic getaways list.

Amsterdam is a beautiful city for a short weekend together. From romantic bike-rides though the city to walking hand in hand along the canals, Amsterdam is just the perfect destination for a romantic getaway as it is so compact and easy to get around. The buildings are beautiful and you are nearly guaranteed to have some beautiful spring sunshine even if there may still be a chill in the air.

Stay at the 5 star Dylan Hotel. Located alongside the city's main canal-belt and within "The Nine Street's" shopping district, The Dylan's aesthetically pleasing rooms are the perfect place to lay your head. DylanAmsterdam.com

Eat at Sama Sebo. Make a reservation at the Indonesian Sama Sebo to make sure you get a table. It is nearly always booked out. SamaSebo.nl

Get there: Amsterdam airport is served by many major airlines including Aer Lingus, Ryanair, Easyjet, Air France, British Airways, Cityjet.

ASOS Top 5 Boots

So recently I am a little bit obsessed with boots and finding the perfect pair of flat ankle boots. This is something that happens me every year around this time. ASOS are killing it at the minute with their boots and I have picked my Top 5.

ASOS EVETTE Suede Ankle Boots

These ASOS boots are perfect for taking you from now through to next season. They are the perfect boot for dressing up a casual dress and tights or jeans and fur gilet.

ASOS KNICK KNACK Over The Knee Boots

I can totally picture Khloe K or Kylie J rocking these ASOS  over the knee boots with an oversized top and some sunnies for a touch of LA cool.

ASOS ARTIST Leather Brogue Lace Up Boots

I bought these ASOS lace up brogue boots  last week in burgundy which has since sold out. I can't wait to pair these with super skinny jeans and an oversized chunky knit for Sunday morning walks.

ASOS RATTLE Patch Work Ankle Boots

Hello, I think the 70's are calling! Omg I LOVE these boots. Throw these ASOS Bowie-esque beauties on with a shearling waistcoat for a glam rock brunch outfit.

DAISY STREET Snake Print Block Heeled Ankle Boots at ASOS

 Ok, so technically these are not ASOS boots but they are available on ASOS and who am I to turn away from a fierce snakeskin ankle boot. Snakeskin boots are so hard to get right but these are perfect.

My Zara Boxing Day Haul...Update

So yesterday I received my order from Zara.com. I placed the order at around midnight on Christmas night/St Stephens Day morning so I was really happy to receive my order on NYE, as it was the first day we had post since Christmas. Zara are not the quickest with regards to delivering your order but at the busiest time of year, I was really impressed by their speed.

I wish I could say the same about the product though. I am so disappointed!!! I was so looking forward to receiving the Leather Black Ankle Boots I had ordered. I have been on the lookout for ages for the perfect pair of flat black boots. I like the idea of a lace-up boot but I want to stay away from the traditional Doc Marten, so I was so excited when I found these boots on Zara.com. They are lined in a faux sheepskin so I thought they would be perfect for walking to work in the crazy weather we are having here in Ireland at that minute! Only when I received them they are HUGE, like man size huge!!! I wear a size 7/40 shoe but when I am ordering from Zara I tend to size up to an 8/41 as I feel that their shoe sizing is definitely on the smaller side. One thing I have noticed about Zara flat boots is that they tend to look pretty enormous when you get above a size 39, this is something that tends to stop me buying boots there as any girl who wears a bigger shoe size will tell you, we do not want to make them look bigger than they actually are!

Even with all that said I was not expecting these boots to look so manly! They legit look like a man's size 10/44 boot, I mean they are huge! You can see from the pictures just how ridiculously oversized they look! I am returning them straight away. I spotted bought these boots today on ASOS and bought them, they are gorgeous!
