Pan-fried balsamic pear salad with pancetta, gorgonzola & warm honey dressing

In theory, I shouldn't like this recipe as I don't like blue cheese and am not a massive fan of pine nuts. However, the thought of a warm salad, consisting of pan fried pears & pancetta won me over! It turns out the blue cheese works perfectly with this salad, however I'm not ready to try it on its own just yet! To make the meal more wholesome, I served it with a baked potato!
You can find the recipe here - its perfect for this time of year when pears are in abundance!

Nursery Sneak Peak

While I have been absent from blogging, I've been busying myself with finishing off different rooms in our house... All of the rooms are livable but the finishing touches (which seem to take the longest) have been missing.
I've been wanting to share my baby girls nursery for some time now. Hopefully I will be sharing them in the next week or so...!

Random post, but I just fell in love with this dress when I saw it in the news!

My Week: In Pictures

This week went so fast & was so busy... lots of traveling & lots of socialising & very little spare time... these are a few images I managed to capture!

Thea's first time on Portstewart Strand {where her daddy grew up}

A traditional Irish cottage, which my husband worked on restoring!

Scents to make my home smell pretty:-)
Viola plants - in preparation for Autumn
A new skirt - £4 instead of £20 due to a missing bargains ;-)

The biggest moment of the week was my baby moving into her cot-bed & us all rediscovering SLEEP :-)
