We spotted the fun and colourful Under the Sea collection at Parfois in Mahon Point Shopping Centre recently. It’s inspired by all things marine and our favourite is this lobster pin. €8.99 

We adore the ‘Style is Art’ floral hardback notebook, it includes original sketches by the Newbridge Silverware design team. It’s €20, in stockists and newsagents nationwide.
