The Wedding Edit – Wedding Night

On our wedding night we stayed in a local, new 5* Boutique Hotel in Donaghadee; One Shore Street.  The hotel was stunning, I absolutely loved our room (the boy did good!), the staff were amazing, so welcoming and friendly, but gave you your own space.  We had the most delicious breakfast there.  This is definitelyContinue reading “The Wedding Edit – Wedding Night”

For my third and final Hen Party I headed over to Liverpool to meet up with some of my fabulous friends!  From day dot, even before I was engaged or had a boyfriend even, I knew I would always have my hen in Liverpool.  I love the city and I have THE most amazing friendsContinue reading “The Wedding Edit – Liverpool Hen”

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 – Hen Parties

Yes you read right, I said hen parties, not party. Of course I of all people would have more than one hen party! Well that’s not originally how it was planned; it was meant to be one semi-planned/semi-surprised hen in Liverpool, but not everyone would be able to make Liverpool, so it turned into aContinue reading “The Wedding Edit – Hen Parties”

The Wedding Edit – Small & Local

American Pancake Recipe

My second pancake recipe for Pancake Tuesday or again you may prefer to call it Shrove Tuesday is my one for American Pancakes; the thicker fluffy kind.  Equally as quick and easy to make and equally as tasty.  I suppose it’s just your preference to what kind of pancake you prefer, or maybe it’s the time you eat them.  I like to have my AmericanContinue reading “American Pancake Recipe”

Crepe Recipe

With Tuesday being Pancake Tuesday or you may prefer to call it Shrove Tuesday I thought I’d share with you one of my full-proof recipes for crepes.  Well I lie, this is my mum’s recipe that she passed on to me (could originally be a Delia Smith one).  Mum always made these for us growingContinue reading “Crepe Recipe”

BAKE SOME LOVE

Fancy going for the handmade or homemade touch this Valentine’s Day? How about some easy shortbread treats? Make it romantic with a heart cutter, letter cutters spelling out L-O-V-E or just go to the effort of making something yourself, and just think of the brownie points you will get for a maximum of an hoursContinue reading “BAKE SOME LOVE”

Open your senses

Last weekend I headed back ‘home’ to Bangor for a long overdue catch up with my best friend and to finally get out for our Christmas dinner, not per-say the traditional Christmas dinner of turkey and stuffing; but as a Christmas present to each other a dinner together for Christmas rather than an unneeded present.Continue reading “Open your senses”
