Cocktails and cakes at the launch of KitchenAid Mini

This week I was invited to the launch of KitchenAid’s new mini stand mixer.

Here’s how the night goes down…

The night kicks off with delicious cocktails and canapés in the swanky surrounds of The Design Yard in Dublin city. The Design Yard is a showroom for bespoke kitchens, some of which come with a price tag of €300,000!.

KitchenAid have flown in Sean, one of their top demonstrators, from the UK to show us what this mini but mighty little machine can do. Sean is some kind of stand mixer guru, he has everyone in the room hanging on his every word.

If you’d never baked in your life, you’d walk out of this demonstration wanting to bake immediately. Read More

At first I was like no. Hell no.

2. Irish coastal holiday parks

3. Trailer trash

BUT, then I started to really actually think about it. Read More

The striking ceramics of Danu

I recently discovered, and may now have a slight obsession for, Danu Ceramics.

Danu’s founder Ruth Power, who I discovered through her Instagram, says she’s inspired by ‘travels, nature, wanderlust, antiquated trade routes and our home country of Ireland. I’ll sing from that hymn sheet please.

Last week I finally joined the masses and got aboard Instagram. When a home accessories store liked one of my photos, their incredibly unique and artistic creations caught my attention. Read More
