The Wedding Edit – Liverpool Hen

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 – 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”

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”

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”

Healthy treats

Tried out a couple of recipes from this month’s Sainsbury’s magazine last night. Some cashew-date energy balls and maple peanut butter raw ‘fudge’.  I hold my hands up, some of the ingredients I just substituted for what I had in the house.  I can be a weirdo with textures and tastes of foods so didn’tContinue reading “Healthy treats”

for him

Is it just me or is it always really hard to buy for guys for Valentine’s Day, flip even asking a guy is hard enough! “I don’t know, never think about it, it’s more of a girls thing” said Mr L when I asked for his man’s point of view for this post. So IContinue reading “for him”
