    20 hours ago by traceysblog Such a nice new recipe. One I'll make time and time again. Calzone using a  #fitzgeraldbagelslim  20g Mozzarella as half my healthy extra A and lots of speedy peppers, mushrooms, onions and chicken/bacon with speedy passata. It was fab!  #slimmingworld   #pinchofnom   #calzone   #pizza   #foodoptimising   #slimmingworldireland   #slimmingworlduk   #sw   #weightloss   #foodie

    1 day ago by traceysblog Saturday was my first time eating at  @marketbardub  and its safe to say I'll be back very soon. I love Tapas because I'm a greedy soul who wants to try as many things as possible. Highly recommend the prawns pil pil (always, its my weakness), nachos, meatballs and patatas bravas. Atmosphere is also fantastic!  #dublin   #irishblogger   #dublineats   #irishfood   #dublincity   #ipbig   #tapas   #ootn   #blogger

He was such a trooper and they were able to glue it back together. We were home in bed 4 hours later. I'm not the better of it but so glad he's OK as it could have been a lot worse!

    4 days ago by traceysblog Its weird, I've been following Slimming World for two years now. You would think that this would be the time that I'd be getting fed up or bored. For some reason I'm enjoying it right now more than I ever have. I genuinely think its the (what I like to call) renaissance of the healthy extra B gone are the days or two weetabix (for me anyway) and now I'm all about the pancakes, waffles and oat cakes. I get so excited about breakfast like. This morning I have baked oats in the oven but this was yesterdays half batch…

Available at  @supervalu_irl  as well as Tesco and Dunnes. A great Irish family business and I think it's important that we support these kinds of businesses  #weaning   #babyfood   #babyyoghurt   #mbloggers   #ipbig   #momlife   #irishblogger

I couldn't not share this though.  @slimwithderek  sent me the most thoughtful gift ever. I sobbed when it arrived. Such a lovely surprise. My dad is going through a really tough time but its amazing to see how much this little man helps him and the bond they have. Thank you Derek ❤
