Crushing it: Part 1

Gary Vaynerchuk. If you haven’t heard of him then Google his name instantly. Follow him on all forms of social media and buy his books. Why? Because “you only get one life”. He is the straight-talking businessman that every entrepreneur aspires to be. It goes beyond the millions in the bank and the brand – it’s…

Travel Series: Stockholm

I have decided to start a series of travel posts after my latest rendezvous with the travel bug. I’m hoping this is only the beginning of my adventures and that there is many more to come. This was my first trip away completely on my own. Before I left I was intimidated to an extent…

Chai Seed Pudding

Late night Googling always results in some good food ideas. The latest was chai seed pudding. I have seen loads online but I was never enticed as they tended to look like tapioca. Which for those of you that don’t know is frog’s sperm! Sexy, I know. The usual applied. It had to be simple and…

It’s Time to Repeal the 8th – #KnowYourRepealers

If there is any one thing people know about me, it’s that I am very opinionated and probably over share on a regular basis! #sorrynotsorry. So recently trending on the internet has been the hashtag #knowyourrepealers. As far as my knowledge goes it came about from criticism about the ‘type’ of people who support the…

Simple, Quick & Easy Baked Salmon

I wanted to make a fuss free tasty meal that would work for lunch or dinner. Trying to keep it simple or shouldn’t mean it lacks flavour, because what’s the point in eating food if you don’t enjoy it! Also,  I absolutely HATE cleaning up too, so less mess means a happier Michelle! This recipe…

Semester Two.. let’s be havin’ ya!

Semester two we meet at last. It’s an unusual limbo feeling. It’s the last semester of final year and you’re mad to be out of college. Yet on the other hand you never really want to leave this chapter of your life, as for most of us these past few years will be fondly remembered. …

Prep the veg by cutting them into…

Green Pancakes!

I have been making pancakes for literally as long as I can remember. However, normally they were layered in sugar and lemon, or syrup. As time has gone by and my love for food has grown I’ve come across tonnes of recipes, but few get a reaction like my Green Pancakes. Not to mention they…

Traditional Homemade Brown Bread

I absolutely love traditional soda bread and I’m a big fan of easy, minimal mess recipes. I’ve made this several times and it’s a winner every time! It’s great with scrambled egg or marmalade! Here’s what you’ll need: 250g wholemeal flour 200g plain white flour 1 tsp. bread soda, sieved 1 tsp. salt 1 egg…

Now that’s a little bit of me…

Hello…. Recently I’ve really been working on expanding my knowledge based, and networking and trying to learn new ways in which I can expand my very neglected blog. I have become part of the Health Bloggers Community which if you have a blog I would highly recommend you follow. They offer a space to learn…

Is this it forever?

Is this it forever? A job you get no satisfaction from, in actual fact you hate it. You work long hours for someone else’s gain. You spend less and less time doing the things you love because it’s what’s accepted by society. Work your way to the top! Work hard, play hard right? Until you…

Interviews: What to Ask?

Following my previous post about how to interview like a pro, I compiled a list of interview questions. Not for you to be asked, but for you to ask your interviewer. Why you should ask questions… It shows you give even the mildest of fucks about the role. If you ask no questions the interviewer…

How to Interview like a Pro…

This may seem stuck up considering it took me awhile to get a job. However, it thought me how to interview like a pro and score a job with a very reputable company. Being told my lack of experience was a problem was highly frustrating. Especially when it’s commonly known to be an easy way to…

Food… Is it fuel or just a toxic relationship?

Food is the stuff we put into our bodies when we are hungry right? or bored? It’s the stuff we need to keep us alive? or the thing that’s killing us? I am the first to tell you I have a horrific relationship with food. People think because I’m a good cook and a foodie…

Travel Series: Wild Atlantic Way Edition – Cliffs of Moher

We set off with a county in mind but no exact location. I think this is how the best adventures begin. Something draws me to County Clare, probably the endless memories from childhood summers spent there. Something about it makes me feel at home. Wild salt air and vast ocean kind of ignites something in me…

Yoga Girl

Most people don’t realise I have a love affair going on with yoga for the past five or so years. This love was recently rekindled at the start of the summer when I stumbled across Yoga Girl – Rachel Brathen on Instagram. A month or so later I found her book in a little bookshop…
