Jelly Care Package

This care package was pretty easy to do as the one thing my Husband loves is jellies.

I decided to treat him by collecting his favourite jellies and sending him a care package filled with different varietys.

I bought all the large bags at Euro Giant and Dealz so most bags were like €1.50

To decorate the inside of the box I used pritt stick to glue some funny wrapping paper as I really hate how boring the boxes are when opened it makes it a little more interesting. I cut the paper in sections as its easier to glue that way !

Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter – The Library 📖

Who loved watching Peter Rabbit as a child ? Well I did and loved being read to at night before bedtime . The weekend I was in Athlone on  a weekend away and popped into the local shopping centre for a browse and came across the complete collection of books by Beatrix Potter. 

Even though we don’t have children yet, I said to my Husband wouldn’t it be great when we finally start a family of our own that we have these to read. 

 I grew up in a era where mobile phones and tablets didn’t exist. My childhood was playing outdoors until it got dark,reading and watching classic movies. When I become a mother I want that to be the same foundation for my future children to grow up in for them to be children for as long as I have the power to allow them to be.   

It contains 10books and is in a beautiful display box to keep them nice and organised. They were €40 reduced to €20 in The Works shop.

They would make a great gift to a child, new parents or for the big kids in us all 📖



My perfume love ♡

This year I got this perfume as a 30th birthday present from my Husband in February.

And I just love it. Its not too sweet or too musky it’s quite light and the bottle is gorgeous for those who like to collect perfume bottles. 

I picked up the small gold purse size in a set of 3 for €75 in boots.

Mr & Mrs – must haves !

It’s wedding season and there is nothing I love more than personalised wedding items. Especially ones that don’t break the bank. I picked up these travel tags for myself and the hubbie for our suitcases for our next adventure 🌍 what I love about it is the Mr ones aren’t too girly like most wedding accessories do be.

These are only €1.50 each in Dealz and are just beautiful they have a range of invites, banners & fairy lights perfect for any bride to be 🌸

Houmous with Harrisa 

While visiting my friend in London back in October. I ate in a Lebenese restaurant called Shava and was served the most amazing sauce with my dish. I asked the waitress what it was and she ended up giving me a few tubs to take home, which I brought back to Sara we both were amazed at the flavour and taste of the sauce she’s now addicted too 😛

 I have since been searching at home for Harrisa and came across this in Dunnes Stores recently it’s amazing by the way!

They also do the Harrisa Paste in their Deli section which I added to Vegan Burgers I made recently and it was divine. 

I use organic carrots and celery with it. Or you can use nachos or add it as a side with salad or dinner
