Happy new year! You can still say that in week 2 of January right?! In all honesty the arrival of a new year quite often fills me with mixed emotions.

Happy Tuesday lovelies! And it’s a sunny one here in Dublin town 🙂 So any of my readers who know me well, know that I am a full blown coffee addict (and self confessed coffee snob!).
