Baking healthy Banana and Oat Bites


Today little G and I have been busy in the kitchen together baking one of his favourite little healthy snacks, ‘Banana and Oat Bites’. Well, technically I did the baking while he shoved a wooden spoon in his mouth. Where and when I can, I like to cook his food and treats from scratch. It’s something I  find hugely rewarding, ...

It’s finally finished… *eeek Over the past few months, I’ve been working my little socks off on a small collection of handmade makeup bags. At last, here they are. *Collapses on sofa This has honestly been almost like my second baby this year, this is something both my husband Stefan and I have poured our heart and soul into for ...

Breakfast at Gracie’s


‘A good Irish baby’ is what a woman in the supermarket called Grayson, as she clamped her hands around his chunky thighs last week. ‘Nice and chunky’ she said looking at him with a huge smile washed over her face. She’s right, Grayson is not just a big baby, he’s huge. I’m evening wondering if there might have been a ... Read More »



I love the internet, but I love chocolate cake too… the difference between the two, is that I don’t spend 8 hours a day stuffing cake into my mouth (unless I’m feeling a bit emotional, and then it’s fine, OK!). Why don’t I eat chocolate cake morning, noon and night? Well, simply because I know it’s bad for me. It’s all about moderation and ... Read More »

What 100,000 feels like.


As many of you know I recently hit 100,000 subscribers on my Youtube channel.  I wanted to type a few considered words to try and express what this actually means to me and how I feel about it. The first thing I feel is totally overwhelmed and humbled, but mostly I feel thankful. What’s always going to be important to me is that I ... Read More »

Happy Father’s Day Stefan!


I’ll admit, I’m not normally one for public displays of affection, but I strongly believe it’s important to make sure the people we love, really know how much we value and appreciate them. So, this post is for you, Stefan. Happy first Father’s Day from Gracie and I! You sure do make our little Prince Parsnip smile a whole lot! ... Read More »

Our Month in America


They  say ‘a change is as good as a holiday’, don’t they? Well, in our case we had both; and boy-oh-boy, we’ve loved every last moment of it. Florida with its tropical climate, friendly strangers and everything in XXL paints a huge contrast to our home big smoke that is London. Although we love London for all it’s eccentricity, architectural chaos and diversity’, we ... Read More »

Minimal beach make-up…


Being a little Devon countryside girl at heart, I’ll admit, I’ve always been rather partial to a day out at the beach. Particularly when that beach happens to be a lovely sunny one in Florida. I am not partial however, to getting my naked face out in public, unless its halloween of course! As much as I adore a hot ... Read More »

Korres Guava Lip Balm review


As Grayson drifts into his morning nap, I thought I’d take advantage of my rare 20 minutes of uninterrupted alone time and combine two of my favourite past times… sunbathing and blogging. This post is comin’ to y’all all the way from sunny Florida. Currently I’m typing these words while lying on our balcony listening to the waves roll onto the beach beneath ... Read More »

Korres Peach Blush Stick Review


Trust me to weed out the only supply of make-up on the tiny island of  Santorini, buried in the back of a remote sun bleached, rustic chemist. My beady little eyes spotted this Korres Blush Stick  whilst on the hunt for something far less glamorous, nappies. Being a Greek brand… it seemed like the perfect souvenir for a self-confessed make-up ... Read More »
