Hi Everyone, happy Monday! If you follow me on snapchat (michaelabear1), you’ll know that I started to cut back on my sugar intake about 4 weeks ago in an effort to feel less sluggish and tired all of the time! I’ve been getting a lot of questions on snapchat asking me how it’s going and if I have any tips to share so I thought I would write a quick little post about my experience so far! Obviously, I’m not a qualified nutritionist in any way but these are just some things that I’ve found helpful and maybe you might too!  Also, when I say sugar, I mean any kind of processed sugar, I still eat fruit…

Hi Everyone! I’m back today with a brand new post after taking a little bit of a blog break over the past couple of weeks. I don’t really have any “proper” reasoning for being a little quiet online lately, other than the fact that I think I’ve been feeling really run down over the past few weeks. Recently I haven’t been feeling 100% myself and for the first time in my life, I think being stressed out for a prolonged period of time started to have an effect on me physically.

Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, mine was jam packed with a trip to Brooklyn to visit Smorgasburg (a wonderful outdoor food market) as well as a little bit of shopping in preparation for my mini getaway to Cape Cod next week! Speaking of shopping, I wanted to share a very cool new service called Addresspal from An Post that allows people back home in Ireland to shop from any website here in the States. Many of you will know that my Mom is American (which is why I’m very lucky to have dual-citizenship) so growing up, my sister and I used to visit Boston every single Summer for a vacation to visit family and relatives! One of my favorite things about these trips would be shopping for new clothes and school supplies just in time for going back to school in September and of course my Mom would often stock up on her favorite American foods to bring back with us to last a couple of months! Back then it was near impossible to get American brands back home so we would always end up landing back in Shannon with an extra bag each filled with all of our favorite American treats.
