The 5 Things I’m Doing Differently in 2017

I've been reflecting on the year that's just gone a lot over the Christmas break as it was a time where I totally kicked back, hung out with those I love without deadlines or school runs and it got me thinking about what I'd do differently this year. What I'd like to switch up in 2017.

A Summer Adventure in the South of France

The last few weeks have felt like a bit of a dream if I'm honest. A gorgeous sunny adventure in one of my favourite parts of the world: the South of France with good as gold kids and my sweetheart of a husband. I've felt like a lucky, lucky lady after quite a busy year.

Things I’ve Learnt On Holiday With Kids in Cannes (So Far)

So we've been in Cannes for the last week after a blissful 6 days in Avignon where we're returning on Thursday-and it must be said, holidaying by the coast with my kids is totally different to my usual champagne-fuelled film festival shenanigans (naturally)- but it's been just as awesome (despite the constant urge to get booty shaking by night)!

It's that time again: #Brilliantblogposts and this week I'm sharing two posts I hope you'll enjoy, a break away with the family at Raithwaite Estate by the Yorkshire coast and one of my most recent post which has just gone live on How to be passionate but NOT obsessed with work. I receive a lot of emails about seeking balance so I hope this helps!

15 Minute Seafood Spaghetti & Cherry Tomatoes

I love this dish. It always reminds me of my times at Cannes Film Festival, dining alfresco in the sunshine sat in a bistro overlooking the Cotes D'Azur while enjoying the wonderfully fresh seafood that the Mediterranean is famed for. Pure bliss!

A Long Weekend at the Cannes Film Festival

If I'm honest, I'm not really sure know where to start with my time at the Cannes Film Festival this year, it was such a wonderful whirlwind of a weekend from start to finish, I almost felt as if I was in a movie myself, a rom com meets cool European film, set in the Cote d'Azur where a group of friends have the time of their lives and appreciate every second. Now there's a film I should write!
