Stylish Blog Award :)

The lovely Jude over at Love Lust & Fairy Dust presented moi with the Stylish blogger award so thanks Jude for my first award ever :)

Here's how to present the Stylish Blogger Award to the fabulous blogs that you follow:-

1.  Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.

2.  Share 7 facts about yourself.

3.  Award 15 of your recently discovered bloggers.

4.  Contact the bloggers and inform them about the award.

1. I work in a hospital and am the most squeamish person you'll meet!  My colleagues enjoy turning my stomach at every chance they have (especially Pili and Eadaoin!)
2. I collect cookbooks and have an obscene amount of them :) 
3. I lovvvvve New York and have been there many times over the past 14 years.  We brought my mam for her 50th a few years ago and she was terrified and was convinced we were going to be mugged/kidnapped etc.  I reassured her that in alllll my times there, nothing had happened to me and I'd walked around on my own plenty.  Cut to us heading to the drug store around the corner from the hotel and seeing police tape all over the place.  A lunatic had stabbed 7 people and had been shot by the police.  I thought, let's avoid this scene and went into the side of the drug store, only to be faced by paramedics working on one of the poor victims?!  Poor mammy :)  She's come with us plenty more times since then and nothing's happened hehe

4. I fall, a lot.  Even when sober.  Yep, I'm a clumsy eejit.  I managed to fracture my ankle a couple of years ago when I was stepping down one step with a bunch of stuff in my hands.  I will never forget the sound of the crunch of my ankle when I rolled over on it, still turns my stomach thinking of it (squeamish me!)

5. I used to work in a castle, Dublin Castle that is.  Not many people can say they worked in a castle hehe They filmed the Tudors there for a couple of summers and of course we had to hang out the window looking at Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Good times eh Ruth and Andrea?

6. I am a beauty blogger and have never had a facial, or a massage, or a manicure hehe  I feel weird at the thought of it, maybe one day I'll change my mind :)  I will never have a pedicure I can tell you that much, the thought of a stranger at my feet freaks me out!

7. I have 2 tattoos and want another one.  I know what I want, I just have to find the right picture.  I think I know where I want it too, so when I get it done, I'll post a picture.

Now, onto the 15 bloggers.  I follow lots of blogs, so these are in no particular order and I'm sure I'll forget some that I love, so sorry in advance!

And speaking of awards, the Irish Blog Awards are coming up, so if you're feeling generous and wanna do a good deed, head over the  and feel free to nominate moi and I'll be your best friend :)


  1. Hi Karen,

    Love your 7 facts, especially the one about NYC, I go there every December and although I feel completely safe, I don't remember a time when I went there without something happening. This year we were involved in the detention of a shoplifter!! all adds to the excitement I suppose. Your poor mum must've been traumatised. I will pop over and nominate your lovely blog in the Irish Blog Awards. Jude xx @jadlgw

  2. OMG! Never had a facial! I'm hyperventilating here! I am officially extending open invitation to you to have a Skin Essentials Facial (Irelands best Facial(ahem)) any time you are in Wexford.

  3. Awww thanks for thinking of me love! And congratulations on getting the award :D I actually love these kinds of posts, it's always fun to read that bit more about my fave bloggers. You should totally book yourself in for an aromatherapy massage in Melt (in Templebar), it's one of the nicest things you will ever experience, so heavenly! Then once you start you wont be able to stop trying lovely new things to papmer yourself with hehe
