If you’ve found a great spot to get a Christmas present or a company who has been very helpful lately – do feel free to share in the comments below! Read More

When I was invited along to their store on Dublin’s Grafton Street last week I wasn’t sure what to expect. Surely this good news story was too good to be true. The mad thing is, it’s not. Read More
I’ll let you in on a secret; our ground floor is made up of only 2 rooms. The first is the living area which is North facing and has space for a sofa and a dining table and chairs at a squish. The second is my small galley kitchen, South facing, which is bathed with light the whole day through. This is the heart of my home and where I spend most of my day. The kids are part of the furniture in the kitchen, standing on chairs to peek at what’s on the hob; they stir, mix, peel and the 5-year-old chops to help me out. We come up with recipes together and eat together. Sometimes (often) the toddler climbs on the table, so at least the kitchen is small enough that I’m only 1 step away from being able to pop him back down to earth when required.
Today I’d like to introduce you to my friend Michelle who blogs at Mollymoo. She is incredibly talented, winner of Irish Craft Blog of the year (amongst several other categories) at 2012 Blog Awards Ireland, an amazing crafter, photographer and graphic designer. Michelle, along with Miss Molly have designed a very special piece of crafting that kids can do by themelves (with a little adult help). Today they’re making school bag charms. If you’ve not checked out Michelle’s blog yet, please do. It is amazing and great, great fun. Read More
Have you heard about Adam’s Cloud? I first heard about Benji Bennett over 3 years ago now when I chanced across his interview on Ireland AM.

If you’re into gardening and the UK is just a little bit too far for you to travel to see the big flower shows then Bloom In The Park is for you. While it might be the Irish version of the more popular events like Chelsea Flower Show, it is in fact far more as Bloom also hosts a vibrant food festival. Read More
