My outfit today is my favourite dress.
It is made from old lace and wedding dresses.
I bought it from a designer in London
I have a good few dresses from this girl,
all her clothes are made from vintage fabric.
The photo is at the beach in Wexford .
I took some photos for melanie
however I didn't feel happy enough with them to send for her magazine.
My post today is about my journey to become a coffee shop owner.
If you are thinking of opening a coffee shop,
my advise is don't.
It is such hard work.
We took it over on St. Patricks day and spent the next 6 weeks
redecorating and rejigging.
4 weeks ago we opened.
Every week has been a massive learning curve.
The amount of guidelines and rules you have to follow is to put it nicely very trying.
The amount of money you have to spend to reach and maintain these standards is unbelieveable.
In ireland we are in the midst of a bad recession.
Our government is anti business, they give no assistance to small operators like myself .
They see opening a business as another opportunity to impose more taxes.
Anyhow I could rant on
but I won't.
Enjoy my photos and I hope you can come and visit some time.
The last few weeks have been great and we are being repaid for all the hard work
by our lovely customers and their kindness.
