I speak at BritMums Live.
Wow, it's that time again (are the weeks getting quicker or is this what happens when you get older, you lose track of time!)...
As a mum to two young boys, Oliver, 7 and Xander, 4, one of my greatest concerns is keeping my kids safe online. Whilst the internet is a wondrous place to learn and play (my boys are catching Pokemon in the pictures in the park here), enjoying a small part of their life via their tablets can pose great risks too.
Travelling is one of my greatest passions. Having just returned from an amazing holiday in the South of France, I already have the travel bug once again and am planning more getaways for October and Christmas.
Pregnancy - and especially your first pregnancy - can be a daunting experience. As a self-certified hypochondriac, even the smallest ailment is enough to to send my worry-levels into overdrive, so as you can imagine, when 'with bump' this was a million times worse.
We are big (and little!) fans of Half-Pint Chic here.
I love to support small, independent, family-run businesses, especially if they’re fairly local to me too–so when I discovered the cute greetings cards, prints and giftware from Sophie Morrell, based in South Yorkshire, I was delighted!
I love my house, I really do but thanks to Pinterest I want to make some changes, some subtle, others a bit more dramatic to our house.
I'm hitting the milestone that is 35 in November, and on reflection, this year has been one of not only my happiest yet but in many ways, no doubt the biggest learning curve I've had thus far, as my blogging business has expanded, I've rediscovered yoga, trialled different ways of eating and exercising and have found myself time and time again, pushing myself out of my comfort zone.
I want this post to be as positive as possible, really I do but I write this with a frustratingly sore, burnt leg after I spilt a cup of boiling hot tea down myself- and over my poor laptop (which has only just recovered from being swamped by water earlier this month enduring a trip to Google Android hospital) so the pain in my leg might just reveal itself in my words.
Last week saw a childhood dream come true when I presented three short features for ITV's breakfast show 'Good Morning Britain', with my pieces broadcast last Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
A post on my experience, having a traumatic birth.
My sons' wardrobes are a real mix from high street fare to the odd supermarket buy and designer pieces for special occasions.
Style Notes is a new interview series on the blog where stylish women can share their personal style.
The web is a one big, mammoth collection of info, and despite there being some dark and scary corners to avoid, it’s pretty important your child has access to all its wonders when the time is right, of course. My son Oliver has just turned 5 and with my guidance, plays a few online games on the Cbeebies website and together we search YouTube for old Batman episodes and music videos he loves (Hello Pharell)!
With the holidays fast approaching you may have Christmas dinner plans in mind as you ponder whether it’s too late to make the Christmas pud. Now you can relax because we’ve teamed up with expert, online royal warant holding butchers, Donald Russell to give you the chance to win one of their Ultimate Christmas Boxes.
BritMums Live was a total and utter whirlwind of a weekend of which I'm not sure I'm even remotely recovered from, but I'll try to articulate my highlights for you here... It was a weekend sponsored by wine (literally) thanks to Lindeman's Wine so forgive me if I've forgotten anything or anyone.
