The Avonmore Way / Clara

Anyone ever bought a car with the intention of 'this means i can start walking more'? Living so close to the Wicklow mountains but not having a car to drive in and do the trail routes was always a pain point of mine. Now that we have a car and my leg is finally healing... Continue Reading →

Chicken Biryani

Do you ever try a new vegetarian recipe and while eating it all you can think is 'a chicken version of this recipe would be so good?'. I stripped a veggie biryani back down to basics (Spices & rice) and built it back up with a few of my own additions - tikka paste, chicken... Continue Reading →

Forgiveness.

My life feels so up and down recently, like a rollercoaster that just won’t end. When it’s good, it’s oh so good, but that anxiety in my stomach and sense of something’s about to change is always right. My intuition is so strong and always serves me well. This past few weeks have been a... Continue Reading →

Smudging.

I performed a shamanic smudging ceremony in my house tonight, in preparation for the full moon. Tonights/tomorrow's full moon is in scorpio which brings the souls darker elements to the surface to be faced, transmuted or released.
