Chemo is finished! Time to close that chapter of this journey and move on to the next stage of treatment. In this chatty update I’m really just talking about my mental health after chemo. I guess it’s not that upbeat, … Continue reading
Here’s how chemo 2 went… I’ve also done the next day and included my injection that I take for growing the white blood cells in my bone marrow! Exciting stuff 😉
I’m going to put the rest of the videos up here today. They have been up for a while so this is back dated! I keep forgetting that just because it is on YouTube, doesn’t mean you have seen it! … Continue reading
I initially uploaded this video and kept it private. It is the one where I tell my story from the beginning (talking about my signs and symptoms) up to diagnosis (including missing my diagnosis) I know I’m not my usual … Continue reading
Well! All those blog posts and videos I’ve done about my hair…look at me now! Haha! When the girl with the YouTube videos about hair loses it all! Here’s how the hair journey went….
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 think the last foundation review I did was this one: L’Oreal True Match Mineral Foundation. Before that, I was in love with the L’Oreal Nude Magique BB (do you remember? I never shut up about it!) I guess it’s safe … Continue reading
So the last time I posted about my life, I had a 6 week old baby. He’s now 21 months. In one way it feels like that was only a few short months ago because I’ve had so little time … Continue reading
This post has taken me DAYS to write, as I only have the use of one arm and hand at the moment! On that note, if anyone would like to come to my house to wash and blowdry my hair … 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
