Jump into July
by Lisa McGowan
Girl’s never a better header than the above eh? Well we have come a long long way in the last few months. If you think back a year ago when we were all wondering what or where we would all be in twelve months. Well as they say “Look at us now”. I’m lucky enough to have both of my vaccines as have my family, well bar Daragh.
‘There is such a joyful happy feeling about and it really does make us rethink and almost take stock of life and how we can all be kinder to ourselves in general…..’
I had the best week down in Liscannor. I enjoyed it so much. What a beautiful part of the world. I walked the legs off everybody. We went to beautiful restaurants, cooked fab food well, Chris & Mam did. I am a great cleaner and general assistant though to be fair. It was amazing to leave the house and go West. We have an amazing Country we really do. In an average year I would have flown to the sun as would many of us if we are honest. I can tell you one thing though girl’s, I won’t wait as long again to take a house in the West to relax and recharge. As they say I am a convert. Don’t get me wrong I love my sun holiday and look forward to that day too but I do have a whole new appreciation for holidaying at home.Thanks so much for all the great recommendations on places to visit, they didn’t disappoint.
I also want to say a huge thank you to all of you who purchased my loungewear throughout the month of June. I am so happy to read all the lovely comments from our community here. As I said, I put so much into getting them right and I am thrilled with them. They were ideal for lounging around the house in Liscannor on holidays. Would you believe I have a new order gone in already so hopefully in August I will have a restock. I had held back a few sets in all sizes for returns but thankfully we had very few returns. As a result I have a very small quantity available in all sizes, very limited in some sizes but there are a few sets there. Click here to buy.
I hope you all have nice plans for the Summer. At least the primary schools are closed now and no homeschooling for the Summer. I can’t believe Daragh is all finished in school. We always say it but the years just fly by, they really do. He will be heading off now in September and I have to say I dread him leaving the house. The one thing I won’t miss though is the Sunday night lunch box scurry and the uniform wash and iron …we all know about that right?
What’s New for July?
I am delighted to welcome back Born for July. Huge congrats to Joan and her team who opened another new store in Henry Street. You are one whirlwind lady and I know you never stop. I have to give it to you and the team you nail the looks month after month. It really is great to see such a successful Irish company led by a woman doing so well. I visited Born HQ in June and I was blown away. Girl power all the way. I have my July pieces chosen with Joan and I know you will love them Ladies just as much as I do.
I have to give it to you Derek, you are the gift that keeps on giving. Never a month goes by that you do not have a new product to bring to market. The really great thing is that they are products that we will all use. I know I have said it to you all before but Derek really did reinvent his business at the start of the pandemic and has grown and grown. It just shows you though when you have a flair and are creative you can make great things happen. Keep it going Derek you are playing a blinder.
Ah here, Rachel seriously it just keeps getting better. The wedges this month girls honest to God like they are just fab. We all love a good pair of wedges and a good pair of trainers. If you have both you really have the Summer sorted for your footwear and a good pair of sliders . Well you all went mad for the sliders in June and Rachel hasn’t disappointed in July. Happy shopping ….
