My Personal A-Z of Life!

For this week’s post, I wanted to do something a little bit different.  Being only 31, I am definitely not full of wisdom (especially since I recently had my wisdom teeth removed, lol) but there are a few principles that I really try to live my life by…

Deliciously Ella’s Sweet Potato Brownies

I would be telling lies if I said I didn’t have a sweet tooth and wasn’t a fan of chocolate brownies.  Needless to say, when I discovered Ella Woodword’s (author of Deliciously Ella cook book) slightly healthier version of the traditional chocolate brownie, I was very, very…

My Summer Fashion and Accessory Must Haves for This Year!

At the minute the shops are FULL of amazing summer clothes and accessories.  Trends change so quickly that it is sometimes hard to keep up with what is fashionable, and suddenly your summer clothes from last year are completely redundant.  I thought I would put together a mood board featuring…

I was going to start this blog post off by saying, ‘when I was growing up, I absolutely loved ice-cream’, but a more appropriate (and honest) intro would be….. when I was growing up, and even more so now, I absolutely love ice-cream!  Like a lot of Irish…

Then and Now – My 30th Year in Review

Today’s blog post is a little bit different to my usual content, but it’s one that I really wanted to write.   As today is my birthday, I thought it would be a good time to take a look back over the past year, and reflect on things that…

How to Have the Perfect Pamper Evening

When I was growing up I was definitely the kind of girl who opted for a shower over a bath every time! The thought of having to wait for the bath to fill and then sit in it, just felt like such a waste of time.  However, these days, I…
