On Saturday I finally saw my friend Amanda for the first time in three months. She ran away to Spain back in August to teach English to spanish children and between moving and going back to college I hadn't had time to see her since she got back. Life gets in the way and technology fails you. We decided to hit up our favourite coffee place in town 'Cool Beans' and have a good old catch up. It's been our favourite place since before we left school three years ago and we spent a little too much of our Fridays in there last year. If you're ever passing through Longford I highly recommend you go in and order a sandwich. Best in the whole town. We rarely order coffee these days, no longer need the artificial energy to get us through the end of the Leaving Cert but it's still pretty good. It's a cute little place and the staff are really friendly so definitely pop in. Penneys is only around the corner too. After feeding our souls we went and window shopped around town. Being broke when 'Tally Weijl' has the best sale ever on is nothing more than heartbreaking. I need to sell a limb or something so I can cash in on all these amazing A/W trends. Still on the fence about tartan skirts. I've tweeted many a tweet and still can't decide if I should take the plunge. It's a little too 'school girl' for me but at the same time reminds me of 'The Craft' and all it's ninetyness. Tell me your thought's on it below. High fashion or just high school?
