Picture This! – Dublin City, October 19th 2013

 

Picture This! Dublin-City

This was the invite I received from the lovely JR of Picture This! Dublin City … read the small print … how could I turn it down! I couldn’t so I RSVP’d that I’d be joining both Timi and JR of Picture This! Dublin City and whoever else, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed on Saturday morning, October 19th.

Promising to be bright-eyed and bushy tailed on a Saturday morning after working all week and it being the weekend could’ve been a false promise however it wasn’t and I met Timi and JR and everyone else (fellow bloggers, business peeps and fans) outside Clement & Pekoe, raring to go on the first ever Picture This! Dublin City Walking Tour. I was also pretty early … that’s eagerness for you eh!

The plan for the tour was to begin the day at 10:30am with a beverage and introduction at Clement & Pekoe, South William Street.  From there we were to visit Balla Ban, Beaux Bows, Irish Designer Shop, Sseduced, All City, Siopaella, Icon Factory, Pie -Man, and finally White Lady Art. For me it was to be a jam packed day of introductions to the people behind the places I’ve been, an introduction to places I haven’t been, people I didn’t know and I planned what Timi and JR had probably hoped for and that was to enjoy my city or as they put it #EnjoyYourCity.

Unfortunately I had to cut my part of the tour short as I had a very special event to organise on Saturday night that just could not be postponed … Nice one Timi for trying πŸ™‚ However, from the time I spent on the tour, which took in Clement & Pekoe, Balla Ban, Beaux Bows, Irish Designer Shop and Sseduced … I had an absolutely great day.

Taking ‘Picture This!’ as a rule to myself when on the tour, a rule to myself that I normally always abide by anyway, I took quite a few snaps along the way, some of which I have shared with you in this post and others which I will share with you when I delve a little deeper into my favourite experiences of the day … i.e. stay tuned for more posts!
