It's Alllliiiive!

Hello to all of my lovely followers and readers! 

I'm sorry about my extended absence from the Blogosphere of late, I have genuinely missed being an active member of the community but have had a very busy couple of weeks which prevented me from getting my blog on. Thank you so much to all of my new followers and I hope that everyone enjoys this post!

Today I had a day off work and felt like unwinding. So I got fancified up, went to a few museums in Dublin and did a little bit of shopping. Which to me are all valid ways to unwind! Of course I took some photos so I figured I would share with you guys. 

This is what I wore! Got this shirt on for 15 Euro which I felt to be all kinds of epic. Check out the sleeve-span!

My make-up went as follows:

I went in for the Egyptian exhibition in the National Museum of Archaeology but it was disappointingly small, only one room! I also went for a wander around the other exhibitions. What follows is picspam, enjoy! I essentially just took photos of things that I figured you guys would like to see! :)
Unsure. Pretty though! 

Collection of Egyptian funerary bits and pieces.

Medieval cross

Loads cool keys and such.

The skeleton of a Viking warrior buried with his sword.

Skulls and chains. These skulls were mutilated, the one on the left was stabbed more than 20 times. Possibly the skulls of hostages or slaves. Fun times. 

After that I went to the National Library to the W.B. Yeats exhibition which was fantastic. This caught my eye immediately, it's an illustration for the poem 'The Stolen Child' by Yeats. The illustrator's name is Cormac Figgis. 

You can read The Stolen Child here which I thoroughly recommend doing because it's quite beautiful and eerie. 

Finally I picked up a few bits and pieces including this awesome cat necklace. It was only one euro and is all kinds of purdy.

Until next time!

Looks like you had a nice day out. I love that illustration and I like Yeats poetry too. I've only been to Dublin once and didn't have time to get to any museums. Must try and get back there one day :-)

Glad to have you back in the blogging world!
Sounds like you had a great day!

Weird looking cross! It looks like it could double as both a cross and a ninja star! haha!
