HEALTHY GIFT IDEAS (1) One of my ‘best buys’ ever has to be my Vitamix.  Whether it’s whizzing up green smoothies, acai smoothie bowls, soups, dairy free ice-cream (made with frozen bananas) or coconut (or nut) butter it’s really just the tip of the iceberg as to what this machine can do.  Yes, it’s expensive but […]

Kindness

Tomorrow, Friday 13th November (unlucky for some!) is World Kindness Day!  How cool is that?  Really every day should be world kindness day but I don’t think people give it much thought so it’s really good that there’s a day to highlight the benefits of kindness and to remind people why we should all be […]

Do You Laugh Enough??

Do you laugh enough?

We’ve all probably heard the saying ‘laughter is the best medicine’ and the Irish proverb ‘a good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything’. As we get older though we tend to laugh less as we get caught up in the serious business of life.  Just think of how often […]

In my previous post I talked about why I love matcha lattes so much.  While there are more and more options popping up around Dublin, the following are my favourite places as they offer a wide variety of non-dairy milk options (coconut is my current favourite) and I’ve always been happy with my lattes!

Move over Joe there’s a new brew in town and it’s green

Matcha Green Latte

I love the idea of coffee – the frothiness of lattes and cappuccino’s, the undeniable rich aroma, the social element of ‘going for a coffee’ and of course the caffeine induced pick me up.  Unfortunately I just don’t like the taste of it which is probably a good thing as a cup of joe could […]

Recipe: Pink Ombre Spring Fool

Spring has totally sprung here in Ireland.  I love this time of the year when the place starts to burst with vibrant colours as the flowers begin to bloom. When I was growing up we had a weeping cherry blossom tree in our front garden and our street was lined with cherry blossom trees so […]
