The Wedding Edit – Home Hen

This was hen number one, my home hen with friends and family and we headed up to Belfast.  This was my more ‘classy’ and sensible hen party; we all headed out to dinner and a Murder Mystery.  I have always wanted to do a Murder Mystery, I love crime series on TV and for someContinue reading “The Wedding Edit – Home Hen”

The Wedding Edit – Dressing the Bridal Party

Today’s post in The Wedding Edit series is all about dressing the bridal party, the dramas and ease of trying to dress two bridesmaids and a flower girl.

The Wedding Edit – Small & Local

One of the main things I wanted to do when planning our wedding was to use as many small and local businesses as possible and it was something I succeeded in doing. In no particular order take a peak at who we used, I’ll later go into more detail about them as my ‘The WeddingContinue reading “The Wedding Edit – Small & Local”

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! Phil and I had so much fun last night, our wee party for 2. I’m not really one for setting myself goals or doing New Year Resolutions, because I always end up forgetting them or breaking them, I think there has only ever been one year that I actually completed them.Continue reading “Happy New Year!”

So long 2018

I’m going to be honest with you, right now 2018 is a bit of a blur, perhaps I’ve been walking about with blinkers on all year.  I wouldn’t say nothing eventful happened, because it did; instead it is maybe that the year went by so fast.  Yes there have been ups and downs, stress andContinue reading “So long 2018”

RECIPE: Joe Wicks Ginger Chicken

Kinda became a little obsessed with this Ginger Chicken Biryani in October, made it loads and randomly preferred it cold the next day for lunch (not cold, cold, but room temp).  It’s a recipe I got from the Joe Wicks Cooking for Family and Friends that I actually borrowed online from Libraries NI, PREP 15 MINS       Continue reading “RECIPE: Joe Wicks Ginger Chicken”

RECIPE: Chocolate Avocado Cake

This is a recipe I found on BBC Good Food it was actually a vegan recipe, but I chose it more for the fact I had an avocado I wanted to use up and just switched the recipe to what I had in the house, which was not dairy free/vegan ingredients.  For the buttercream icing I justContinue reading “RECIPE: Chocolate Avocado Cake”

AT THE MOVIES

Read about my first time at the 1950’s inspired Tudor Cinema in Northern Ireland to watch The Greatest Showman; all in aid of fundraising for Marie Curie, North Down. A while ago mum had said to me to keep Thursday 13th September free and to be back down home in Bangor; we were heading toContinue reading “AT THE MOVIES”

So today is the 29th Feb, a unique day indeed, only comes around every four years.  Another unique thing for me today is leaving work early on a Monday afternoon! Today my unique day turned into a bit of a treat for Dad and I after he visited my uncle in hospital.  Daddy daughter datesContinue reading “Unique in every way”
