Family Road Trip ~ North West UK ~ Part 1 Llandudno!




Today I’m going to kick off our road trip across North Wales & into the North West of England. As usual I’ll tell you where we went, how long it took to drive there, where we stayed, what we did & exactly how much we paid so you can work out how much it’ll cost you to do the same trip. Barod? (that's Ready? in Welsh *blows knuckles*)

Things That Rustle My Jimmies ~ 24/08/17


I mentioned on Twitter today my new found struggle against biting people on the daily. I find myself irrationally angry of late so, in the name of public safety, let's unrustle some jimmies, shall we? 

Be sure to tell me, on your platform of choice what's grinding your gears this week, what's driving you demented, what's rustling your jimmies - here's mine: 


1. 'I really shouldn't be eating this, it's so bold'.


2. Waiting for Irish invoices 


3. Wating at pedestrian lights and someone stands between you and it to press the, already pressed, button. 


4. 'Oh my GOD, I've made the Blog Awards Long List!!!!' 
(the list you had to physically put yourself onto)

(Which also quotes exactly what you said about yourself at the time of entering if you click 'View Blog') 



5. The 2017 Rose of Tralee, a Doctor specialising in women's health, when asked about the 8th Amendment: 
'I'm not ready to talk about anything like that'


Ok, release the Kraken, what's been rustling your jimmies this week?

Living the Dream on Lough Derg!





It’s been a dream of mine to stay in a real thatched cottage with the kids so I couldn’t believe it when I saw a deal HERE for Lough Derg Thatched Cottages in Tipperary for just €149 for a 3 night stay for up to 6 people (!). I had brought the kids to the Co Clare side of Lough Derg during the mid-term break but we had to cut the trip short due to illness, so I promised the kids we’d go back. You can catch up on that trip HERE.

Bobbi Brown Remedies Skin Wrinkle Treatment No 25 ~ Cherry Pick of the Week!



While Bobbi Brown is not a brand I've featured heavily before, it's always been one that's been floating around my makeup drawers. Aside from Charlotte Tilbury's Bronze & Glow, Bobbi's Shimmer Brick is the only luxe highlighter I've ever parted with hard earned cash for. I got to meet the PR Gals this Summer and you better believe I was intrigued by Bobbi Brown Remedies collection. They're targeted solutions for any skin issues, this week's Pick of the Week is the one (of seven) I've been trialling for several weeks now, the new Skin Wrinkle Treatment, No 25.

Killarney Family Fun ~ The Perfect Staycation Spot!



Killarney is one of those places you’ll return to time and again, whether it’s for the stunning views out over the Killarney lakes, the sound of the water crashing over Torc waterfall after a downpour or the clean fresh air that embraces you at the Gap of Dunloe, there’s no end to the reasons you’ll return. Oh and the shopping, how could I ever forget the shopping?! 


If you're looking for a last minute staycation that won't break the bank, let me tell you why Killarney is the ideal spot!

Cherry Pick of the Week ~ Rimmel #Insta Fix & Matte Powder!


Cherry Pick of the Week this time out is a budget translucent powder that works as effectively as a product five times its price. The #Insta range from Rimmel haven't been making huge waves online, to the point that until I picked this up in Boots a fortnight ago I didn't even know there was a #Insta range from Rimmel, but this lightly scented mattifying dream has piqued my interest in trying the rest.

The Ultimate List of Oakwood Tips! ( Oakwood? Oakwouldn't!)



Welcome back to our Epic England Road Trip, this is the final instalment as we’re now over the border back in Wales. When I was planning this adventure I thought a trip to Oakwood Theme Park would be a great way end our trip but boy was I wrong. 

There were some good points but unfortunately not enough to outweigh the bad. If you’re one of the many families who follow our footsteps all is not lost as I’d recommend you go to one of the many castles, gardens, beaches or take a day trip to Folly Farm, the Secret Owl Garden or Manor Wildlife Park instead.

How to Hugely Boost Your Facebook Reach For Free! *Updated August 2017*


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?

Things That Rustle My Jimmies ~ 02/08/17



I've tried to be calm and rational this week but 3 days into a sick pup, with no sleep & less patience - LET'S DO THIS!!

Things that have been rustling my jimmies this week: 


1. Selfish MELTS that try on clothes & put them back with an inch of foundation on the neck!



2. New shoes making their very best attempt to hobble me, despite sizing up!



3. Dudebros on threads about female reproductive health giving their 2 cents



4. THIS children's book about obesity!



5. The never ending threads & interviews about 'influencers', disclosure when it concerns maybe 2% of creators & NOTHING WILL BE DONE ANYWAY!


Can you relate? What's at you?
