Desperately Seeking Succulents


"It's not easy being green "- to quote Kermit the Frog's song of froggy woes, and I have proven that true, time and time again over the years. Lord knows how many basil plants I've sentenced to the organic recycling in my time. 

Indoor plants have become a 'growing' trend over the last year or so, and as always Instagram and Pinterest have become plentiful with plant-filled homes, that really inspired me to dip my toe back into the compost - so to speak. But my worry was, would the usual botanical botch ups ensue?

When is it time to break up with your make up?


The lipstick you bought to wear on that first date, the eye shadow palette you bought for your wedding that’s now older than the kids, that expensive foundation that you bought a few years ago but you only wear on special occasions - chances are you could have similar products that may now be out of date, lurking in your make up bag.

Christmas at Home // The Kitchen


The kitchen is the heart of the home, and even more so at Christmas with lots of baking, cooking and entertaining going on. So I wanted ours to be a haven of tradition colours with scandi-style influences. I'd recently painted the kitchen a gorgeous shade of grey called 'Dolmen' by Colourtrend - an Irish paint brand  - so everything just popped against it. 

Christmas at Home // The Living Room


As I put away all our Christmas decorations I thought I would share some photos of Christmas in our home this year. I so enjoyed decorating the house, and giving it that cosy hygge vibe. So my first gallery is of our living room.

Winter walk on a West Cork beach


There's nothing quite so good for the soul as a bracing walk on the beach. It's one of the things I miss most about Scotland - the stunning East Lothian beaches we regularly visited on the weekends and on summer evenings after work.
