Woah. Where to begin? With a couple of pics, I suppose….
It’s a really important week here in Ireland, as we vote on something that shouldn’t really require a vote – equality for all our citizens.
I’m also super proud to have worked on this Love is Love piece for Bash Magazine, where we photographed four Irish gay couples who talked about how they met and fell in love, and what the upcoming referendum meant them (pic above of Etain and Michelle – you can read interviews with all of them over on Image.ie).
For the week that in it though, I thought I would share Barry’s Bespoke Bakery, a delicious and apt short film that Ben, my wonderful partner in crime, produced. If you have nine minutes, it’s well worth a watch.
While there is so much good will out there, talking to friends who’ve been canvassing it’s become clear that a yes vote is in no way a done deal. So please, if you believe that everyone deserves the right to love whom they chose, make sure to vote tomorrow!
Hola from Vitoria-Gasteiz, the pretty, historic capital of the Basque Country. It’s been a whirlwind non-stop couple of days, during which I’ve seen, tasted, learned – and photographed! – so much.
A few shots from a barbecue-themed food shoot for the Garden Heaven 2015 annual. The piece that accompanies these shots features great tips on easy-to-grow herbs, edible flowers and mouth-watering recipes – like these roasted stuffed figs with Parma ham, above.
Above, a herb basting brush, and below, gorgeous herb salt and edible flower ice cubes.
The mag is on sale now – pick it up if you’re feeling green-fingered or want to try any of the recipes above!

In my circle of friends, I’m most definitely known as the nerdy one. This goes way, way back. Back to calculator rulers, Gameboys, mp3 watches, and teeny tiny phones. May always reminds me of my love of tech – in college, it’s around this time I’d use my saved waitressing tips to upgrade to a new phone, to better procrastinate during study time. So yes, my nerdiness runs deep, and, in recent months, has expanded to include all manner of gorgeous accessories.
Here’s what’s topping my wish list…
Thursday are for throwing back, so it’s time for another instalment of When We Were Young, a new series that looks at what bloggers were like in their childhood. This week it’s wonderful, talented, warm and lovely Ajda, who was living in Dublin but is now food styling it up in Amsterdam. Click through to find out about the adorable things she got up as a seven-year-old in Surrey.
