Lapland on a Budget ~ A Mums on the Run Group!



Oh, you want to travel to Lapland without breaking the bank do you? Long dreamed about a trip to the winter wonderland and home of the original Santa have you? Corrina has long shared her knowledge of how to do Lapland on a Budget on this here blog HERE. HERE and HERE , but of late has been gaining attention in mainstream media too - because she does what we've always tried to do - make the dream accessible for all! 

We've now added Lapland on a Budget to our umbrella of Mums on the Run groups and to say it's exploded is quite the understatement. Almost 7 THOUSAND members in a fortnight. If that's not indicative of a genuine Irish & UK desire to live the Lapland dream then I don't know what is.

How to Hugely Boost Your Facebook Reach For Free! *Updated September 2019*


There's not a day goes by that I don't receive a message bemoaning Facebook changes or chat to a fellow blogger who has decided to toss in the towel on that social media platform altogether. Many blame Facebook algorithms and, to be fair, they are unfairly biased against those that don't shell out a fortune for sponsored ad placements. Well what if I told you that you could multiply your Facebook reach exponentially in just 3 simple steps without paying a penny?

Totally Tilbury ~ Tellybox Beauty Breakdown ft a Full Face of Charlotte Tilbury


We know by this stage (3 years later) how particular I am when it comes to my makeup for the TV, right? Often the lovely ladies in the Virgin Media makeup room will powder me down or gloss me up, but for the most part, I arrive ready for set. On this occasion I arrived readier than ever as Naomi on the Charlotte Tilbury counter in Brown Thomas had very kindly made up my face. If this visage, while plagued with pneumonia and pleurisy isn't the best ad for the magic of Tilbury products I don't know what is! (It's actually not a Charlotte Tilbury Ad, just so we're clear)

Bluestone National Park Resort Wales - Review!


When we got the mail inviting us to Bluestone National Park Resort in Wales I don’t know who was more excited me or the kids! I’d considered booking Bluestone a few times but something always stopped me I think it’s mainly because we love to keep going and exploring further afield as we have done on many of our UK road trips. Five hundred acres of rolling hills and woodland nestled in the Pembrokeshire countryside, I knew the kids were going to love everything about it, and that was before I told them about the Blue Lagoon!
