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.

Weightloss with LighterLife

Weightloss Lighterlife

After much consideration I finally decided that my first article should be about my biggest achievement, the one that gave me the confidence to get up and start my Blog which has been years in the making!

I’ve spent the majority of my adult life overweight. I’ve lost weight in the past with Weight Watchers, found it hard and then gave up. The usual story but I kinda settled on the fact that I would never be thin. The next thing I knew fast forward a couple of years and I found myself at a massive 17 stone and size 22! Shopping, which was once my favorite pastime, became a nightmare.
