Last month, I had a quick work trip to New York & Washington DC. I’d been to both before, but never had the time to properly explore DC. I decided to try and pack as much as I could into this 24 hour visit, as I don’t know when I’ll get the opportunity again now… Read More A Day in Washington DC
Our lives are hectic at the minute with sorting our move home, selling up in California and all that goes with being relatively new parents. I’d heard great things about Farnham Estate in Cavan, so I booked us in for one night with a half-day spa pampering package to relax and take a break from… Read More Irish Mini-Break – Farnham Estate
The Aran Islands are comprised of three islands off the west coast of Ireland – Inis Mor (largest), Inis Main (second-largest) and Inis Oirr (smallest). The islands are rural Ireland at it’s finest, and are a glimpse into old Ireland. The total population of the three islands combined is about 1,200 people, and the language… Read More Ireland Adventures: A Weekend in the Aran Islands
We did it! We survived our first round-trip flight with our little man! I was so, so nervous about flying with a baby. We’ve all been on those flights with the hysterical kid & the mother who looks like she’s on her last nerve – I was fully prepared to be that mother. However, the… Read More Flying with Baby – A Survival Guide
We recently spent a fun-filled week in Orlando on our first family trip, and I have been dying to share it with you all!

We didn’t venture to any theme parks as Jack… Read More Orlando Adventures – A Week in Orlando with a Baby!
We’ve just taken Jack on his first holiday to Orlando, Florida. As usual, I was all about the lists when it came to packing for the trip, so I’m sharing my packing list with you today! I like to be over prepared, especially when I’m out and about with the baby. I figure it’s smart… Read More Baby Holiday Essentials – What I Packed for a Week in the Sun!
Colm and I love Tahoe, it’s probably our favourite place. We try to visit as often as we can, especially in the Winter so Colm can snowboard (and I can play snow bunny with a cocktail in the lodge). We even got married there! In the Winter months, we usually stay close to South Lake… Read More Weekend Adventure – Truckee, California
Everyone has a travel bucket list – I’m lucky to have knocked a destination off my list last year when we visited Alaska. I had always wanted to go, and when Colm found out he had to travel to Anchorage for work, we decided to make a holiday of it. We went in April, which… Read More Exploring Alaska – Talkeetna, Seward, Anchorage & Alyeska
