I have not posted in so long, it has been insanely busy with a new job and house and settling into work and everything else 🙂 Also I tend to be cooking out of cookbooks lately and always feel bad about recipes not really being original that I don’t want to post them! But anyway today I am doing just that. So recently I bought the cookbook, Honestly Healthy.  Continue reading

News in Brief-Fat Ireland, Jailbreaking Romanians and A Bit of Posh Spice

Attack of the fat! It seems Ireland has been ranked seventh worst country in the world in terms of keeping fit. Now the Irish population are behind the Americans in the amount of exercise they take part in every week. Well we are fans of a pint of the black stuff, Tayto crisps and bread, lots of them in fact, and all while we sit on the sofa.

Don’t be offended by my casual stereotyping, everyone is doing it, including Tourism Ireland. For Londoners wanting to ’escape the madness’ of an English summer and London’s 2012 Olympics then they may consider a trip to the Emerald Isle as portrayed by Tourism Ireland in their new advert.
        Tourism Ireland’s new campaign features two likely lads testing how soon one can be sipping a pint of that famous black stuff while the other tries to get a coffee in the commuter-locked city. ’Yer Man’ (fulfilling another stereotype) ends up in a very nice pub after the ’classic sheep shot’ (seriously now?) before ’Office Boy’ makes it to work. All that are missing are some little men in green.
        Chris O’Dowd is the funny voice of the campaign after apparently tweeting that he’d like to be the voice of Irish tourism in Britain. Hey @TourismIreland I’ll be your voice of Ireland in the Mediterranean. No?
If you commit crime but can’t do the time at least remember your manners. That is what two male prisoners have done this week. The escapees, or unaccounted for inmates, as the authorities prefer, left the Castlerea prison in Roscommon where they were serving time for breaking into parking meters. Obviously though, they felt they had served their time leaving the prison and a note; “Sorry, we had no choice”. Well, manners do cost nothing, a thieves favourite price.
What’s the Dail’s favourite price? Over priced. Recession? What recession? You wouldn’t know we were a country in trouble if you walked into the sea of tablet screens that will soon be the Dail. Each member is to receive new tablet computers in steps to “modernise” government. Apparently the cost of the tablets will be recouped through a reduction in printing costs as members will be able to access bills, notes and information on their tablets, on the go. Hey Dail, I’ll have a free iPad! Not you either?
Victoria Beckham, the famously miserable face of brand Beckham has been in Dublin this week to promote her clothing line in Brown Thomas. The always austere Posh Spice was however upstaged by her daughter Harper, as she took tentative steps across the shop floor (reminiscent of her mother in her excessive heels). Predictably and uninterestingly  the media went mad with an image of the teetering tot going viral worldwide but not of them noticed the note left behind; “Sorry, I had no choice”.

How To Be A Baby Fashionista This Summer

Harper Seven Beckham, daughter of Victoria and David, has recently been spotted wearing a pair of tights from high fashion designers, Chloé.  These tights retail for £15, when the adult version sells for only £7.  It is a personal choice whether a parent wishes to invest in expensive clothes for their children, but when it comes to small babies’, the length that they will wear the clothes has to be considered.  Infants grow at a rapid rate, and are extremely active, so their clothes need to be suitable for this period.  We look to the high street for some fashionable clothes for a summer baby, that won’t break the bank.
