Lifestyle Personal Posts Scenes from my Week

scenes from my weekend.

{saturday brunch at l’ouvrier}{two of my very favourite people}{board games & champagne}{getting ready}{girls night out aka happy to be reunited}

After almost six months in Ireland, one of my best friends has returned home. While I rarely struggle to find a reason to celebrate any occasion, this one was deemed worthy of a little bit extra. Whether it was mimosas at brunch, a second bottle of wine at dinner, or accompanying our mid-evening board game with a sip of champagne, the girls and I definitely made up for the last six months apart. I’m just so thrilled that she’s home.
ps: I added the rest of my Barcelona pictures to my Facebook page if you care to take a look!

    What a fun weekend and what a gorgeous group of gals!

    Ready for my orchid secrets? I think the key is to have it in a place where it gets a lot of light, but not DIRECT sunlight. It also can’t be too hot or too cold. Water ONLY once a week, and make sure the roots and soil get lots of air flow (I let mine just sit on a little plate so the water can drain out and the roots get a lot of air). I also fertilize it every few weeks with some orchid food, but I didn’t start doing that until a few months in, when I was sure I wasn’t going to immediately kill it (which I do most all other plants).

      ok well I am totally doing everything wrong! Is it salvageable if the leaves are still green (but the stems are crispy?)

        It’s kind of pooh-poohed but I like to use a spray bottle of water to mist mine every now and then, and for watering, I just douse the roots in the sink and let everything drain out. Really depends on the type of orchid too.

        There are volumes of books on the subject, but here’s a good primer:

        BTW everyone looks terrific in that last photo, especially AC, has she lost weight? Do tell her I said hi :-)

    I love board game nights! I had one too on Sunday night but it didn’t look nearly as glamorous as yours. The champagne must have been a lovely touch!
