Hi Everyone 

I’ve been quiet on the blog lately as work has been crazy. Hairdressers and beauty industry workers get a raw deal at Christmas. We work long hours and have some very early starts getting everyone ready for the party season. On Saturday We attended a wedding at Knockranny house hotel in Westport. I couldn’t drink at the wedding as I had work the next day. This was a first for me.  When Your self employed and it’s Christmas You have to make hay while the sun shines. So that means no crazy nights out until the work is done. Let me tell you I am so looking forward to a few drinks once I finish up tomorrow.


I got this gorgeous dress in Swamp in Castlebar. It was perfect for a Christmas wedding and very comfortable to wear. At €60 it was a steal. We had a fab day at the wedding it was really lovely. The meal in Knockranny is always outstanding. 

I have been terrible with my exercise lately as work has been so busy. I’m looking forward to get back to a good routine asap. I have been hanging by a thread to my healthy eating. Temptation is everywhere. Food prep and the freezer has been my saving grace. I still attended Unislim up until last week and I have maintained my weight. I couldn’t make it this week as it is just too busy. I’m given myself three days holidays Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and St Stephens day as holidays from my diet. I intend to fully enjoy them. 


I will be back over the next few days with a few tasty recipes for you guys. 

Chat soon

Love Maria
