The pride parade was on that weekend but I had to go to the city center for some errands..
A couple of weekends ago was gay pride in Dublin. A lot of people consider this a big achievement in Ireland, especially after the State legalized same-sex marriage. It could’ve been because of the country’s Catholic roots. Or, the fact there are still a lot of countries out there where individuals belonging to the LGBTQ community are still fighting for their rights. So for Ireland to officially recognize this right and grant to them – is such a huge milestone for the group!
Well, I did not participate in the event but passed by a couple of rainbow-colored flags around the city center. There were a good number of parade attendees I bumped to but Grafton St was too busy – I didn’t want to cause traffic by taking photos of them. But as you may know, parades for pride day is always colorful and flamboyant, to say the least!
That weekend, I had a few errands to do – including a haircut. I think the parade was to start somewhere around St. Stephen’s Green. I was tempted to have a look at what’s going on but I did not want to miss my appointment. So, I just went to Brown Thomas for a quick bathroom break – and this awkward mirror selfie. LOL!
After I went to Brown Thomas and bought my husband’s “stuff” – I was fighting with myself whether to check the sale in the makeup section (end of season sale is still going on). I saw a SALE sign beside Bobbi Brown and wanted to check it out. I knew I didn’t need any new makeup items that day, though. “Luckily” for me, there were a few other people in front of me taking their sweet time checking the lippies. Took that as a sign I already had too many lipsticks (which is true, LOL) so I went out.
I arrived early for my appointment so I waited for a few minutes.
Got my hair washed immediately when my stylist noticed me waiting for her. We had a small chat before she worked on my hair. And, I learned the fab news she is pregnant with her second child! Woot! To be honest, I really didn’t notice the bump – she often wears baggy clothes whenever I see her anyway. She told me she is five months along, so that leaves me with a couple more haircuts before she goes on maternity leave.
After my haircut, I went to Starbucks for some snacks. I was contemplating whether to get a toastie as well when I texted my husband where he is. He told me my son fell asleep in his pram while they were crossing the bridge and he can meet me around CHQ if I want to. So, I grabbed my frappe and decided to get something to eat in CHQ instead.
Of course, he was excited to see me or should I say, the “stuff” I bought for him.
