So here it is. The compulsory end of year blog post. And what a year it’s been. As you all know 2016 has been dominated by illness and death making it without a doubt the worst year of my life yet. But right now I don’t want to talk about the bad parts of 2016 (you […]

Nearly three weeks ago my darling Chris passed away and I’ve been humming and hawing whether or not to write this post. Is the internet really the right place for something like that? Is it morbid to write about death and a blog? But then I was thinking of all the support I’ve received via social […]

I looooove shopping. Any type of shopping really. But what I love most is leaving the main street shops behind and find those little boutiques, vintage stalls and secondhand shops. When I moved to Ireland I discovered a particular gem called Siopaella. A small consignment store run by Ella that was sharing it’s premises with […]

So I believe I still owe you guys this one. If you don’t know what I’m talking about you can read Part #1 here. My first few years in Ireland we lived in a fantastic apartment in the city centre. But both Chris and myself were dreaming of a house in the country with a […]

The holidays are over and we’re already in the middle of January. After spending the last two Christmases in Ireland myself and the little one were in for a treat this year. The month of December is so full of traditions and a time I miss my Swiss home the most. So it was with […]

Here’s the second instalment of the Belovelive photo challenge (Read about it here and here). I missed out on two pictures this week as Friday and Saturday were just so crazy and manic I wasn’t in the right frame of mind. But I’m determined to get all seven shots this week!! // 8 ~ Slow Life […]

Things often don’t turn out as planned – sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. I had this post done out perfectly in my head. I knew which pictures I was gonna take during the day and what I wanted to write. I was gonna have a lovely breakfast in Dublin, get my […]

When I originally moved to Ireland I started working as an agency nurse. It basically means you’re sent wherever they’re short and need someone to help out for the day. In my second or third week of working for the agency, I was sent to St. Bricins Military Hospital. Yep – you read that right. […]

Once there was a little boy called Eric. His best friend was a crow who would bring him bananas. And eating those bananas would give him superpowers … … but of course that’s not the Bananaman I’m talking about. Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to ride horses. My mum still says […]
