I'm almost a little embarrassed writing this post when there are so many very serious things happening in the world. It feels a bit narcissistic to place so much importance on a website like Instagram [...]
I had the biggest privilege to be invited back to Martinhal Cascais this year for their annual Luxury Family Brand Conference. Martinhal is an absolutely incredible place and they have pushed the boundaries when it [...]
I was compelled to write this post today because I feel really strongly about loving yourself at every stage of your weight loss journey. It kind of all stemmed from this photograph so I'm posting it [...]
15 hours agoby traceysblogDid anyone else's child live on sugar this weekend? It was one of those weekends for us. Loads of out and about stuff which was lovely but inevitably lead to loads of sugar. Don't be fooled by this photograph. He has a beautiful plate of fresh healthy food in front of him (my friend is literally a party queen) but he's eating a party ring. His t-shirt speaks volumes though. Make some noise he did. I ended up staying over at a friend's house last night (we all did) and I was up playing a board game until 3am (though
2 days agoby traceysblogGot excited when I asked did he want a photo with the princess then did his "cool" face as he didn't want to look too eager The staff at @malahidemarinaplaycentre are a credit to the place. Thank you @lovelifeandlittleones for a great day. Looking forward to returning already!
2 days agoby traceysblogI've a feeling we will end up on some kind of adventure today. I love this feeling! We're going to @lovelifeandlittleones little Noa's birthday party in @malahidemarinaplaycentre and Peter will have the car so we get to take the DART home which is an adventure in itself. But on our way home I think we will go on a little adventure somewhere. I've no idea where. It could be a park, the beach or a slice of cake in a new cafe. I just love seeing the world through this little boys eyes. It's blindingly bright ⛰
2 days agoby traceysblogThis photo makes me laugh so much. I feel like Peter and I look so goofy and Billy looks a bit mortified to be with us 3 years have gone by in the blink of an eye. I had just started my Slimming World journey at this stage and was down about a stone. I've since lost another 4 stone which is crazy to me! Weight lost but so much gained Can't wait to return to this beach in just over a week Cannot wait for quality family time #holiday#weightloss#family#slimmingworld
4 days agoby traceysblogThis dude saved a little pigeon today. It was one of the cutest and most bizarre experiences. I was in the garden letting the dog out to go to the toilet and Billy started saying "shoe shoe" to what I thought was a garden ornament. He was doing it over and over again and pointing at the sky saying "fly away". I thought it was a cute game. Nope an actual pigeon the whole time The poor little thing couldn't fly and was petrified He was still there a couple of hours later and I was panicking because I had
4 days agoby traceysblogI met Peter 9 years ago. If someone had of told me that that we would be getting married and he would be organizing my hen party I'd have laughed. If someone had of told me that my hen party would involve doing this in front of a television crew I'd have thought they were off their rocker. It was such a brilliant day though. Wine, cheese, cake and a bit of still life drawing on national TV. #henparty#dttbirl#dttbire#lifedrawing#girlsnight
7 days agoby traceysblogYES ✔✔✔✔ My random risotto/paella hybrid dinner turned out to be an absolute beauty. 100% syn free too. I picked up risotto in the @aldi_ireland special buys today, raw king prawns and hot smoked salmon! Rough method is to dice an onion and 2-3 cloves of garlic and fry using frylight. Then add about 1.5 cups of risotto rice to the pan and fry with some more fry light for a few minutes. Then make up about a litre of stock (I used chicken stock) and add the stock ladle by ladle and replace as the rice absorbs the stock.
