Teaching Kids to Bake WITHOUT Making Cakes!

Teaching Kids to Bake WITHOUT Making Cakes!

As you’ll know if you read this blog (or The Keto Life) regularly, 2017 has been a year of lifestyle changes in our house, not just for Husband and I but for the girls, too. The summer was a bit of a lapse for us all, as we ate and drank what we wanted (which included a few too many Krispy Kreme doughnuts!) but now that school has started again we’re all trying to get …

How to Pet-Proof Your Home

How to Pet-Proof Your Home

Having an elderly dog is not wholly unlike having a puppy in the challenges that it throws up.

Since having kids, I’ve been a lot more aware of what’s in the foods we eat, as well as the products we use around the home and on our bodies.

Cool Grandparents Rule!

Cool Grandparents Rule!

When it comes to ‘cool’ grandparents, my girls really do know a thing or two. Husband and I both had really close relationships with our Nans and having the same thing for our girls is really important to us, which is why we’re so lucky to have Husband’s Mum just round the corner from us. Nanny L is the best Nanny ever! The girls absolutely adore her and she’s basically a cross between Willy Wonka …

Three Irish Holidays To Make Your Friends Green With Envy

Three Irish Holidays To Make Your Friends Green With Envy

Ireland has so much going for it as a holiday destination, and it’s easy to forget that considering it’s just a short hop across the sea. If you’re looking for a relaxing holiday somewhere beautiful, though, there’s a lot of charm to a place that doesn’t cost the earth, is quick to get to and doesn’t require you to dust off your A-Level French or German. In fact, that’s damning Ireland with faint praise. The …
