A new style spotlight with this bardot style Topshop dress.
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.
We've just returned from the most magical 2 weeks away in Avignon and Cannes in the South of France and then a long break in London ( soo lucky) and now I have a severe case of the post-holiday blues! *inse...
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.
Bonjour mes amis! Welcome to this week's Brilliant Blog Posts! The past fortnight has felt like a bit of a dream if I'm honest. Holidaying in one of my adored regions in the world with my favourite people, my little family of nomads, I'm excited to share...
So, the third and final instalment of 'Things I've Learnt on Holiday with Kids...' is here because well, the holidays are nearly over and it's time to reflect again amigos so here goes...
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)!
Bonjour mes amis! Thanks for linking up last week folks and for all your lovely comments. This week I have another piece inspired by our Southern French holiday and it's the lessons learnt in Cannes. Don't miss it.
So those who follow my blog, know my love for Phase Eight runs deep.
Whoop, whoop, it's nearly half-term in the UK and we are all super excited to be visiting Norfolk for the very first time with a long weekend stay a the 5 * Potters Resort for families we've been kindly asked to review.
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!
Despite the pretty crazy weather we've had this week with snow in April then glorious sunshine in May (what's going on Mama Nature?), summer is definitely the horizon which means holiday time baby!
Is it a cat, is it a bird? No it's me, Honest Mum wearing a mask to a ball her kid Xander chose! What am I going on about you cry?
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!
Je t'aime Aubaine with all my French-loving heart, a restaurant I frequented as a filmmaker pre-blogging days, and one I've had the pleasure of review in my guise here as a foodie blogger come restaurant critic (and the rest)!
I can't live without the strong female friendships in my life.
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!
Bonjour mes amis, I'm excitingly off to the Cannes Film Festival for a long weekend away and I simply cannot wait.
