Eilis Lacy, sitting at the window of the upstairs living room in the house on Friary Street, noticed her sister walking briskly from work. She watched Rose crossing the street from sunlight into shade, carrying the new leather handbag that she had bought in Clery's in Dublin in the sale. Rose was wearing a cream-coloured cardigan over her shoulders. Her golf clubs were in the hall; in a few minutes, Eilis knew, someone would call for her and her sister would not return until the summer evening had faded.

At dusk they pour from the sky. They blow across the ramparts , turn cartwheels over rooftops, flutter into the ravines between houses. Entire streets swirl with the, flashing white against the cobbles. 'Urgent message to the inhabitants of this town', they say. 'Depart immediately to open country'.

Glasses Shop Review // Hello loves, hope you're having a great week so far! I'm excited to share another collaboration with online glasses boutique, GlassesShop.com. Unfortunately, I'm slowly becoming as blind as a wee bat and have become quite reliant on glasses, particularly for things like watching TV and driving... I was very kindly sent these retro-style glasses, created for my unique prescription. Although they do make me look slightly 'Harry Potter-esque', this quirky pair is a great additional to my growing glasses collection - it's always great to have multiple pairs of glasses for any kind of emergency... I think I'll leave this pair over at my boyfriend's house, just so I know there is always a pair there, and it's one less thing to worry about...

Salt and Pepper Coat // Happy Sunday, hope you've had a lovely week. I bought this 'salt and pepper' coat from Oasis about three years ago, and it's been a staple piece of my wardrobe ever since. It was honestly a fantastic purchase - it was £100 but I also think it's a good idea to invest in a quality coat, and this one has been such a great purchase. I've had it dry-cleaned a number of times but it's still looking as good as new. The speckled black, white and grey design complements so many of my existing items of clothing, making it such a versatile jacket.
