Thank God For Sweet Paul...

... and his yummy recipe for spaghetti carbonara, which ended up being today's quick and yummy dinner. I HEART his food - and almost even more so his styling, so fab.

Spaghetti Carbonara
Serves 4

6 ounces bacon, sliced
1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
1 pound spaghetti
1 small carrot, thinly sliced
Salt, to taste
1 cup cream
4 egg yolks
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup peas, fresh or frozen, blanched

In a small pan, fry bacon and garlic until bacon is golden; set aside.
Cook the pasta in a large pot of salted water until al dente, according to package instructions; for the last minute, add the carrots.
Drain and return to pot.
Add cream and egg yolk; heat gently.
Add bacon, Parmesan and peas.

Tuck in. YUM!

Just To Round Off...

... a day filled with love and joy and celebration. I think many, like me, are still on a high after witnessing such a magical event unfold. Happy ever after, Will and Kate!

And with this beautiful quote, which was part of the prayers said for the newlywed couple, I'll say good night.

"Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.'" St. Catherine of Siena. Beautiful.


Seriously, Mummy...

... stop watching that wedding and make me some milk instead! Like, NOW!

If Ever A Day Deserved Some Cake...

... today must be that day! Lucky I bought the new Cake Days book from the Hummingbird Bakery!

Details From Our Living Room...

... as it is slowly coming together!

My Very Own Little Princess...

.... could not care less about the royal wedding and is happy to kick back and enjoy a bottle of milk!

She Pulled It Off...

... with grace, beauty and elegance. What a princess!

Wedding Day!

Like most of the world I am at this moment glued to a big screen, watching as glamourista after glamourista make their way into Westminster Abbey. Carol Middelton just walked down the very aisle her daughter will be walking down in just a few moments, and love and anticipation and party and joy seems to be in the air all over London. What a day. What a celebration and what a moment!
What will Kate wear is everybody's mind. Sarah Burton, creative director of Alexander McQueen was spotted sneaking into the Goring Hotel, where Kate and her family stayed last night, so maybe the cat is out of the bag. And if that is the case; what a choice. What a milestone for British fashion. What an on-trend bride. AMAZING!

Happy happy wedding day, Will & Kate!

Trendy Travel Tot

Little Mason Dash Disick looked cooler than cool when snapped in LAX airport en route to Australia with his family. Mum Kourtney and auntie Kim were both spotted toting the 1-year old, who looked dapper in his striped breton top. Baby daddy Scott Disick and super-mam/manager/Kardashian matriarch Kim were also there.

It looks like being around cute Mason may have made Kim somewhat broody as well, stating in an interview lately:

"When the time is right I would love to be a mother. Not anytime soon. But I never know what the future holds." Nwahh!

Oh, Glorious Sunny Days And Al Fresco Brunches...

... how we LOVE you!

Sharing Is Caring

"Want some apple juice in my new cool sippy cup, Mummy?!"

(Royal) Love Is In The Air...

.... even here in Ireland. The upcoming nuptials tomorrow between Will and Kate have everyone - including myself - in a bit of a wedding frenzy. So come tomorrow, this mama will be headed into a posh Dublin hotel to watch the whole extravaganza on big screen - with a few glasses of bubbly to go with it!

Dashing Duo

Nwahh! How cute do Kourtney K and her little Mason look when snapped heading to church in their Calabasses neighborhood on Easter Sunday?! The yummy mama looks fab in a Whitney EVE dress by no other than Whitney Port, and little Mason is dapper in his Ralph Lauren suit! So sweet!

Girly Coffee Date...

... with Nahla, Mummy, K and Hello Kitty!

My Little Pony...

... is nothing against having two very real horses just outside our front door. (OK, well, maybe not RIGHT outside our door, but still, near enough!) These two are my princess' new favorite - and have (momentarily anyway) made her forget about those beloved ducks!

Today's Yummy Mummy Style Crush

Almost-birthday-girl Jessica Alba, who turns 30 tomorrow, spent the day around town in L.A. yesterday. The yummy mama was seen dropping her adorable little Honor off to pre-school before she headed for some shopping and a manicure at Barney's - as every pregnant mama should!

The movie star, who is expecting her second child with husband Cash Warren later this summer, took to her Twitter page to talk about her upcoming birthday:

"My birthday is on Thursday 4/28... please don't make me turn 30 before I actually turn 30 lol."

Sure 30 is only amazing, Jess! Welcome to a fab decade!

Mummy Bliss...

... is The Perfect Latte enjoyed in the garden watching munchkin run around!

Dear Easter Bunny...

... why couldn't you have brought me this instead of a chocolate egg - which mean Mummy won't even let me have?!! I would LOVE to have this pink playhouse in my little garden!

xoco, baby Nahla

Oh, And Feathers...

... I will always LOVE feathers! Which reminds me, I have this AMAZING feathered dress picked in the sales in Zara a few months ago that I NEVER EVEN WORE YET! Now, all I need is a night out!

... is just SO fresh looking! HEART this look for spring!

Playground Mornings...

... are just the perfect way to start a Sunday!

Now That's How It Should Be Done

With spring in the air, baby-fever raging and swollen tummies everywhere, there are a lot of expectant mothers trying to figure out how to dress for their new shape. And while I argue summer dressing is easier than winter dressing when it comes to cladding bump, some might disagree and struggle to find warm weather friendly maternity looks that work for them.

Well, look no further. As always, the ever stunning Jessica Alba come through trumps in a hands down AMAZING maternity summer look. The yummy mummy, 29, who is expecting her second child with husband Cash Warren later this summer, unleashed the best maternity outfit of the year on a shopping trip in LA yesterday.

And what can I say; the dress, the waistcoat, the flowing hair. You nailed it , Jess! Mamas everywhere; take fashion notes ASAP!
