But you don’t need to visit Italy to get the good stuff – Here is the scoop on the best ice cream here in Northern Ireland, according to a professional ice-cream eater aka Jillian Henning. Take your lick from the cream of the crop.(more…)
It seems like there is a world or national day for just about every day now. For example, we just celebrated National Donut day in June. Well, July 7th is ‘world Chocolate Day.’ It is the day that the world comes together to celebrate one of the most delicious treats out there, as if we need an excuse!(more…)
Gosh how narcissistic does that title sound?! I don’t mean it to be of course but I have welcomed lots of new followers over the last few months through this blog, instagram and Facebook and thought it would be only right to introduce myself a bit more.
September always seems to be the busy month for us and usually runs parallel to December where we have Zannas birthday, all the Christmas festivities, all the activities etc at School with Olivia then of course the big day itself.
I thought I would pop together some of the things that we have been up to lately in a bit of a round up so get ready for plenty of pictures!
Following on from lovely meetings Ive had with several people through the squares of Instagram I decided how I would love for others who maybe where a bit nervous to come along to ‘blogger’ events or attend bigger meet ups to come together in a smaller setting; Hence the Insta meet in Banbridge – my local home town – came together.
At the weekend I was very kindly invited by CMPR to attend a meet up of local bloggers which was hosted by the amazing Eddie Rockets on the Lisburn Road in Belfast. Having never been to Eddie Rockets before I was very excited as it just looks like my kinda place…especially after investigating the milkshakes online…yum!
One massive positive that has come from social media in the last few months for me has been meeting some of the lovely people behind the squares of instagram or linked to blogs I read. It has been highlighted by a number of people on social media sites such as insta, Facebook and through different blogs I have read just about how positive this little community here in Northern Ireland can be. Having attended a few events since starting my blog is has been so nice to meet up with similar minded people who really go out of their way to include you in things
There is one place that I will always love that is so special to Christopher and I as a couple and that is the wonderful Galgorm Resort & Spa and we are biased because it’s the place we got married in all those years ago. We where fortune enough to spend all day Saturday there as part of their Afternoon Tea & Thermal Experience and it was bliss, granted we are experiencing a heat wave so it was heated bliss 🙂
