It’s the May Bank Holiday here in London and slightly freaking out were almost half way through 2017. I’m pretty sure it was March yesterday?!?!? Time is well and truly flying.

Recently, the lovelyΒ Est. WANDERΒ nominated me for the One Lovely Blogger Award! NikkiΒ is also living in London and blogging about her travels, fashionΒ and lifestyle! So a big thank you to Nikki for following my little blog and thinking of me while nominating other blogs she felt was worthy! Much love πŸ’•

7 Facts about Me!

  1. I like to think I have the best job ever! I work for a wholesale bakery here in London. I get to go around to so many kinds of kitchens in London and see what’s going on. I get to taste cakes & breads for a living while drinking copious amounts of tea! AND I get PAID to do this!! See…. how much do you hate me right now πŸ™‚Β Doughnuts.jpg
  2. I moved to London in the Summer of 2012 with my boyfriend, now husband! I quit my job back home and had to get a new life / job / home / friend group. Best decision I ever made! I like to think it made me as a person. You never know what you can do until you do it!Β London.jpg
  3. I am a cold person! I am always cold. My feet are always a lovely shade of blue! I also have really dry skin, I think these may be connected. So HOT showers, cups of tea and big fluffy socks are my go to essentials in life!
  4. I love to travel. I don’t think I will ever get bored with it. There are so many places on my bucket list and I’m always scared I’ll never get the list completed.Β Travel.jpg
  5. I have two tattoos currently and kinda addicted to them. I have a fox on one thigh that’s quite big and I love it! My first one was small, the name of my favourite poem alongside a bird. If I wasn’t a scary cat I’d love to go the whole hog and get an arm sleeve! How cool would that be? My next one I’d like to get is something for my girls or maybe a compass….. Saving some ideas on my Pinterest Board
  6. I have typical Irish humour / wit. I also write how I speak. In english class when I was young this was always something I got grief over, now I think it’s something I’m known for and what makes me, me. So all good in the end!
  7. If you ever upset me, or I’m angry with you, or I’m having a rough day…. The way to bring me back on board is Ice-cream or Riesen. These are my all time favourite sweet things. Handing me one of these bad boys will have me putty in your hands πŸ™‚Β Riesen.jpg

    1. πŸ˜‚ You say that now, but come swimsuit season…. Fitting into my wedding dress was mighty fun…..
      I am lucky all the same! I suppose if you have to grow up, a job eating cake isn’t the worst! Still holding onto my florist dreams….

  1. Awww congrats on getting the award!! I couldn’t think of a better blogger who could be nominated for it!! And thank you for nominating me!! I can’t wait to do the blog post for the award!! 😊❀

    1. THANK YOU!! 😘 That was such a nice thing to say!
      Delighted we found each other so I could nominate you! Can’t wait to see yours! xxx

      1. It’s okay 😊😊 it’s definitely true!! 😁😁 I know right I’m so glad we found each others blogs and I’m looking forward to you seeing it 😊❀

  2. oh my goodness you are BEYOND amazing and too kind to nominate me!!!! literally made my day thank you so much!! I loved reading these facts about you, they’re so interesting?! I’ve moved to London too on my own and it’s actually the most amazing thing ever – and UMMM I’m sorry but your job?!?!?! If you’re ever looking for anyone to hire πŸ˜‰ xxx

  3. Congrats on this nomination. I am exactly the same – I am ALWAYS cold! My hands even in the summer, are freezing. Even when I touch my own face, I feel how cold they are. I think it’s an amazing thing that you travelled and set up a new life somewhere else. Your job sounds superb! I am a slight sugar addict. xx

    1. Thank you!! It’s not even funny! And I’ve no idea why we could be like this πŸ™‚ I promise I’m not cold hearted hahaha

      The other day I read a post by a blogger who had removed sugar from her diet. No joke I read it twice and still can’t get my head around how I would even begin to do this!!!!! xx

      1. Maybe in a past life we were both living in some cold country like Switzerland, and our bodies don’t realise we are not there anymore. Haha I don’t know!
        I have managed to cut sugar drastically but I could never completely ban it. Especially when I am at a restaurant which has an amazing dessert menu!!! xx

  4. You do indeed have a great job, except for the tea! I had forgotten about those toffees but now I really need to hunt some down. Thanks for the kind nomination. I tend not to do these awards as I am just not organised enough, but it was very nice if you!

    1. πŸ™‚ I feel ya, each month I try and get better at blog organising, it never seems to work though!! No pressure though don’t worry!! xx

    1. Thank you!! Thats so nice to hear! Sometimes when I’m writing posts I’m in one of “those” humours and I’m like hmmmm this may come across very sarcastic hahaha!! But hey, i love my Irish wit πŸ™‚ You do get used to the cakes though, being around you. On days when I meet other vendors, like say the cheese man…… I practically jump him πŸ™‚ You always want what you can’t have i think…. Thank you for stopping by! xx

      1. By the looks of it, your husband makes a very good bargain. A wife plus a budget one with loads of free goodies, he don’t get to spend much.


        About the stopping part my pleasure

Let me hear your thoughts!!
