    7 hours ago by traceysblog Sometimes the most random dinners are the best.  @elsajonesnutrition  immunity boosting winter soup (unreeeal) with a roast chicken salad. Olives, beetroot, pickles, tomatoes, baby gem lettuce, feta cheese and the vinegar from the beetroot. So tasty!  #healthyfood

    1 day ago by traceysblog Like, I'll never be a food photographer but sure that's OK isn't it? Thankfully  @kenmare_foodie  has that one covered I couldn't not share this though. You may have seen it on my stories (packaging etc is there if you want to have a gander) but  @aldi_ireland  take a bow, this hoisin pork fillet is an absolute beaut! I wanted to create the hoisin duck pancake thing you get from a chinese and it really hit the spot. I've never cut spring onions this way before so that was exciting in itself I used baby gem lettuce cups as the "wraps"
  • When we moved in to the granny flat we knew
    2 days ago by traceysblog When we moved in to the granny flat we knew it would be a great opportunity to save for our very own house some day. Cheaper rent and a smaller space meant we would live simpler and save as much as we could. It also meant a decision to co-sleep long-term and to be honest with you that wasn't a difficult decision. We were co sleeping anyway so making the decision to continue for another year and a half wasn't a big deal. We're still here and still saving almost two years later and co sleeping is literally all we

    3 days ago by traceysblog I absolutely adore my  @scentsy  plug in burner. Because it's a plug and switch there is no candle or flame so I can actually light it without worrying about little hands. It also doesn't heat up any more than is needed to simply melt the wax melt. The one I'm using now is an autumnal cinnamon donut flavour and OMG the smell is incredible. I adore this one because it's like a little night light too. There was a lot of interest in this on my stories yesterday so I've put the link in my Instagram bio if you would

    5 days ago by traceysblog Happy Friday! We have a fairly quiet weekend planned but that suits me fine ahead of a busy week next week. Bit of work, go out for breakfast, take away one of the nights - that kind of thing I'm sitting here eating toast while my brother  @_patrickquinn  is in  #yosemite  in a tent where you can actually hear wild animals outside the tent. There is strictly no food or toilettries allowed in the tents as they attract the BEARS Like genuinely, what is life?

    6 days ago by traceysblog  @lovelifeandlittleones  having her expert skin anaylsis at the  @lloydspharmirl  event at  @airfieldestate  The service is available at participating stores and is really brilliant. They'll advise on skin damage, wrinkles, pores and skin type using an advanced machine that takes just a few seconds. They can then recommend products to improve any issues you might have. A follow up appointment a few weeks later will show how your skin has responded to them. Highly recommend  #bestversionofyou

    7 days ago by traceysblog Had a ball last night at the  @lloydspharmirl   #bestversionofyou  event last night with my gorgeous friend  @lovelifeandlittleones  Being at the beautiful  @airfieldestate  was a very different experience as I am used to being there with my little man running around on play dates. It was stunning in the evening time. Last night was all about me though from start to finish we focused on how to be the best versions of ourselves. We had one to one chats with health professionals, expert skin analysis which showed our pores up close as well as sun damage and wrinkles, our blood pressure
