Gift guide for new mums and mamas-to-be 

Well, I can’t quite believe it: I’m just weeks away from meeting my BABY! I’ve come to know so many lovely expectant and new mums over the last while, and our chats inspired me to put together a gift guide for pregnant mums and those in the newborn bubble who might just need a treat!Continue reading “Gift guide for new mums and mamas-to-be “

An overnight at Bullitt

Because we live close by, staying overnight in Belfast was never something I thought about – but when the opportunity came up to give Bullitt a try, Dan and I just couldn’t resist! Situated between the hustle and bustle of Victoria Square and the placidity of the Waterfront, Bullitt is exactly where you want toContinue reading “An overnight at Bullitt”

So you want to end human trafficking…

There is something inside you that screams when you hear about the precious lives of men, women, and children who are coerced and exploited in the name of money, or power, or greed. Maybe you’ve heard a story of someone who was trafficked and you just can’t get them out of your mind. Or maybeContinue reading “So you want to end human trafficking…”

A morning with Bluebird

When I was younger, my friend Noemie used to come to my house everyday at 7.25AM (with the absolute precision that only Swiss people are capable of) so that we could walk to school together. We were hardcore school buddies, choosing to sit next to each other whenever we got the chance and dilly-dallying ourContinue reading “A morning with Bluebird”

The Night Alive at The Lyric

Oh, Autumn weekends just have to be my favourite. Lighting candles and crunching leaves, warming recipes and hiding out under blankets. Everything seems to be a little quieter, a little slower…and I love it. One thing that (thankfully) is doing the opposite of slowing down, however, is The Lyric’s incredible schedule of shows that justContinue reading “The Night Alive at The Lyric”

Capture NI || Causeway Coastal Route

Can you believe we’re almost halfway through August?! We may still be waiting for summer to turn up here in Northern Ireland but this weekend, Dan and I decided to make the most of what we had and explore the Causeway Coastal Route. It’s no secret that the Causeway Coast is one of our favourites, soContinue reading “Capture NI || Causeway Coastal Route”

Adventure, she said.

She stumbled until she was four inches from my face, broke out into a wide-mouthed grin that made her eyes light up like fireworks and cheekily said: “Adventure.” It was a rainy Tuesday morning in July – the kind that feels and looks like a rainy Tuesday morning in November, but no one says thatContinue reading “Adventure, she said.”

CAPTURE NI || Holiday Playlist with Matt Weir

Matty Weir and I have been pals since I realised he used more hairspray than anyone else I knew. We met on tour: it was my first one. He kept me calm through sound-checks and I made sure he kept the right rhythm (BAHAHAHA) and we amused each other by making up silly puns and visitingContinue reading “CAPTURE NI || Holiday Playlist with Matt Weir”

Capture NI || June at The Lyric Theatre, Belfast (Yer Granny & The Last Five Years reviews)

Belfast, you’re a lucky one. With an arts sector that seems to do nothing but grow and get better in the midst of cuts and uncertainty, The Lyric acts as a hub for this forward-moving, creative resilience. I got to enjoy not one, but two shows there this week. First up, Yer Granny. Based on LaContinue reading “Capture NI || June at The Lyric Theatre, Belfast (Yer Granny & The Last Five Years reviews)”
