I’ve recently tried a new soup recipe which is quick, easy and tastes so so good! I got the recipe from Slimming World so you know it’s a good addition to your healthy lifestyle. As alternative to courgettes, substitute in broccoli or any veg of your choice.
1 stock cube of choice
4 laughing cow cheese triangles (low-fat for a slimming recipe)
Chop up the courgettes and put them in a saucepan with the stock cube.
Add enough boiling water to cover the courgettes and simmer until they are soft (15-20 minutes).
To blend, I split up into 4 parts and added a laughing cow cheese to each quarter.
Let me know if you’ve tried it
So it has officially been 1 year since I started my blog! I just wanted to say thank you to all my followers and my fellow bloggers. The past year has been a great adventure and I hope to be here this time next year.
To those of you wishing to start a blog, just go for it. It’s a very personal thing but you get so much out of it and make so many friends along the way.
I have some great blog posts planned for this next year including some upcoming giveaways I promise.
I got my updated Erin Condron Planner as a Christmas present this year.
Last year, I had the gold and blue planner and this year I got the white and gold planner. I much prefer these colours.
Not much has changed within the planner but it’s nice to have a fresh one to keep track of my appointments, birthdays etc.
I started a new college course this year, so I now use the planner for tracking homework and study. Plus, it fits perfectly inside my handbag with my college folder! ♥

If you’re anything like me and have all your winter clothing sussed but seem to be at a loss when it comes to winter footwear – then you’ve come to the right place.
This year, I seem to get ready for work no problem. Hair, easy. Makeup, easy. Clothes, easy. However, I end up standing there in my bare feet and think to myself what shoes go with this and why do I not have warmer ones. Everything it my closet seems to be flats, Toms, heels or flip-flops.
Here in Ireland, it’s November and it’s a damn cold November at that. So with all that in mind, I think it’s time to stop shopping for more clothes and start thinking about my poor cold feet.
I’ve been searching through my local stores and online and I’ve found a range of winter footwear that I have on my list for my next shopping trip.

My favourite nights out of the year are around Christmas time. Something about this season just makes everything so magical. I love meeting up with the girls for drinks in Dublin and catching up at our favourite cocktail lounge.
I recently stumbled upon iclothing and instantly fell in love with their quality and range. So with my cocktail night in mind, I decided to put together an outfit to order from here.
