Simple Handscrub & Lotion Bars
Simple Handscrub This is the kind of gift that a small child can make, and actually they’d probably love the feeling of squishing the oil and other ingredients together. We used organic ingredients because we’d rather use them where we have the option.

Review: Hairy Baby T-Shirts For Kids
5 years ago my other half went abroad with his 3 brothers for a few days. I figured that the best way to mark them apart from all the other people in the football stadiums in Madrid was to make sure they all looked the same. It was then that I placed my first order with Hairy Baby, choosing the “Paddy Irish Man” T-Shirts. They were pretty cool back then and the lads wore them with pride. It’s been 5 years since the t-shirt landed back in the laundry basket and it’s been washed many, many times. At the very least it’s been washed about 50 times. The colour has…
Just 24 hours. That’s all we had on Inis Mór. It’s not enough time to do all the things we wanted to do. The last thing we wanted to do was to climb on board a tour bus. Hubby spends enough of his time driving buses so even if it meant we missed out on some of the landmarks, for the most part we walked. Journey It takes about 3 hours from Dublin to Rossaveal Harbour, where you can park your car to get aboard the ferry. You can also travel to the Aran Islands via Clare but this was the best option for us. It’s a further 40-odd minutes…

Camping In Mountshannon
The day we packed up our things from carvanning in Kerry, we headed up the road, past Limerick to Mountshannon in County Clare for a 2 night stay. Before I start this blogpost I have to confess, as we didn’t have space for camping gear, thanks to the Irish Caravan And Camping Council, we stayed in a caravan on site. We had as close to a camping experience as we could get! You’ll need to play the video to see more.
Spiderman Comes To Town
While I was away a few weeks ago a parcel arrived for me from Lidl Ireland filled with items from their new “Too Cute” range which came into stores today. Over the past fortnight the boys and I have put all the items inside to the test and here’s the verdict of Spiderman Comes To Town.
Caravanning In Kerry
For the past 4 years we have organised one of the local Summer Projects instead of going on holiday. This year we knew that we needed to take a break, and decided to staycation around Ireland and in particular in the West. When the opportunity arose to go caravanning in Kerry, we decided to take the Irish Caravan and Camping Council up on their offer, packed the car, and travelled down the country. The plan was to spend 3 nights in the Glenross Caravan & Camping Park in Glenbeigh, on the Ring of Kerry, then a further 2 nights at another location in the midlands. I’ll be back next week…

They provided me with a list of all the Oscar nominated movies and productions they have available, including their own documentary “The Square”. I’ve gone through the list they sent and selected a few of my favourites in case you’re interested!
I didn’t manage to make the Irish Craft Fair in the RDS this year, but never fear my mother went on my behalf instead. She arrived home with 2 parcels for me. One of which contained a book from the self-published author and artist, Dolores Keaveney.
