ITWBN 1st Birthday

I just bought my ticket to the next ITWBN event! Afternoon tea with Retro Flame! The girls really out-did themselves this time.

I got to reminiscing on the last event. Because I was taking a break from blogging, I never posted anything – so here is my very, very (did I say ‘very’?!) late post!
In May, I attended the ITWBN 1st birthday in the uber-funky G Hotel! Being from Galway, I’ve been to the g Hotel a few times but always just for a quick drink or bite so this was just out of this world! A day of dress-up, cocktails, beautiful food and networking with the best bloggers in the country! My perfect Day!

So I arrived really nervous! Don’t ask me why cos it’s my 3rd event. As soon as I was through the door though, it disappeared. Unfortunately, I’m ridiculous shy with people I don’t know unless I’ve quite a few drinks on me!

I was sitting at the Killary harbour table. Look at my goodie bag! Fabulous!

We had some really amazing speakers Continue reading

Clean 9 Detox Update

Hey guys! So here is my review of the Clean 9 Detox.

First off, it’s recommended to do a pre-detox to start. This can be done anything from 3-7 days.  It helps your body slowly withdraw so you don’t completely die! I did it for 3 days and actually found this harder then the actual detox! I have a serious coffee addiction! I have coffee on a drip. No joke, I’ve been known to have 4 coffees a day. Doesn’t sound bad but I order double espressos or a triple shot Americano.

So to say this was difficult was an understatement! Ended up with a migraine for 2 days. Couldn’t take my tablets ‘cos there is caffeine in them :-( On day 3 of my pre-detox, I woke up with no headache or migraine so I decided to start then and there before I’d change my mind!

Days 1 and 2 weren’t as bad as I thought they would be. Each morning I had a shot of Aloe Vera juice with a glass of water. For breakfast, lunch and dinner I had two types of supplements. One for supressing hunger and the other for speeding up my metabolism. Then for lunch it was a protein shake. The first 2 days went by quick enough. I found that the evenings felt long so I went to bed early.

Oscars 2015

So the Oscars have come and gone again this year!
This year was slightly different with Girl Power vibes that the spice girls would be proud of. It’s the year of feminism and this was definitely an issue that was raised. Patricia Arquette made a compelling speech when she accepted her award. Women deserve equal pay and rights.
Reese Witherspoon then made her views clear that women should be asked more than what are you wearing…
Well if I was there I definitely would! Could you imagine!

If I’m honest, I wasn’t impressed with the dresses this year. Now don’t get me wrong, some were lovely but nothing out of this world!

Here are a few of my favorites…

ITWBN Blogger Event February Meet-UP


Hey guys!
So I’ve spent since November counting down the days ’til the ITWBN blogger event! I had a great time at the last one and met some amazing people. This network is truly amazing. I now have a family of bloggers to help guide me. As Siabh said your friends are probably sick of you talking about your blog whereas us bloggers love it! Its so much more then posting and getting more followers, it’s a family of like-minded people who can support one another. If I have a question I can ask instead of googling it!

So the 8th of February finally came and boy did it not disappoint! I got the impression that it was definitely going to be bigger but wow!
It was hosted in the beautiful Radisson Hotel in Galway. I got there early so waited in the bar for people to arrive, and yes I had a sneaky glass of wine with Sandra from A Modern Mommy’s World. Continue reading

Clean 9 Detox

Love Foxy Clean 9 Detox

Hey guys,

So after an over-indulgent Christmas and lazy January, I wanted something to kick start my healthy eating plan so I thought a detox was ideal. I’ve decided to do the Clean 9 detox. My sister did the Clean 9 detox back in August and couldn’t recommend it enough, so I decided sure why not! All I have to lose is lbs! She has now become a leader so it was ideal – I have my own personal go-to for help! Here’s a link to her page if you want more information – Foxy’s Aloe Vera.
