I haven’t written a ‘review’ in a while, so this feels odd! I have always had a rule that I never review a product that I don’t genuinely love! If I’m sent something, and I don’t like it, I wont … Continue reading
This post is going to be all about what to expect when you start eating Low Carb. If you haven’t already read the first parts, introducing you to the concept of Low Carb eating – you can find them HERE … Continue reading
The first thing I will say here is that everybody is different and every BODY is different so we all have different results. I will also say, that the number on the scale DOES NOT matter. That’s not to say … Continue reading
I’ve been asked a few times recently about the Low Carb Diet (Keto, LCHF it has a few names) – how it works and how to do it. To be honest, I don’t like to call this a diet because … Continue reading
The Great Wood is a Wetherspoon Pub in Blanchardstown. We went there with a couple of friends on the weekend and OH MY GOD I’ve been raving about it ever since. My only regret is that I didn’t have dinner … Continue reading
I say Haul but it’s actually pretty mini, just a few photo frames I picked up in Dealz! I recently printed off a load of photos using Aldi Photos (which by the way, I had never heard of until it popped … Continue reading
My amazing husband surprised me with a stay at The Beacon Hotel in Dublin. The package included shopping vouchers, free cocktails in the Crystal Bar, dinner at My Thai restaurants and delicious breakfast the next morning!
The way he told me about it, was possibly the best bit of all – he gave me breakfast in bed with “Hotel for 2” spelled out with bacon, haha!
So, here’s some snaps from our stay!
The Beacon describes itself as being a place “where boutique hotel style and design blend with outstanding service to create a new concept in luxury travel.” The decor was just amazing – the photos above are taken in the lobby. There’s a huge four poster bed which is actually a table and seating, a giant leaf table with stools and an amazing pool table – which people were actually using!
The bedroom was gorgeous, and to my delight there was a huge bright mirror at the desk – perfect for doing makeup haha!
The Crystal Bar was really nice and surprisingly relaxed! It was super warm that day, so we went outside to the courtyard where there’s this amazing ‘day bed’ type seating for lounging on. (Of course we LOUNGED, you can see us lying on one in the bottom right!) The napkins were a pretty cool touch so I had to include them too! My cocktail was delicious, super potent though haha – so “one and done” and off to dinner!
My Thai Restaurant
The ‘My Thai Restaurant’ was AMAZING! One of the most enjoyable meals I’ve ever had! The service was fantastic too, all of the staff were so nice! The photos aren’t doing it justice! If you are a regular reader you know how much I love this type of food, I was in heaven. Finding Dim Sum in Ireland is pretty difficult so I was delighted with that. So delicious – if you’re in Dublin looking for a great restaurant, definitely go here!
The next morning we had a huge breakfast and headed off home. I have to admit, I was getting very weepy on the way home because I couldn’t wait to see Devin! I know it was only one night, and we had such an amazing time – but I missed him!! I’m really only completely happy when we’re all together!
Another GREAT birthday, thanks to my lovely hubby!
Thanks for reading! x
This is going to make me sound really old, but I’m going to say it anyway – life isn’t what it was when I was a kid! We used to go outside and play all day long, we didn’t WANT … Continue reading
