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.

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)!

Attending the Cannes Film Festival 2016

The Cannes Film Festival always proves to be the most gloriously glamorous whirlwind of a break! My 5th time attending, every festival, honestly- and somewhat miraculously (as every year is sooo flipping good)- seems to beat the rest.

It's that time again-#Brilliantblogposts- and this week I'm sharing a post on my trip to Cannes for the film festival (ooh lala ) which despite only being a week away, now feels like a million years ago! I missed my babies but had a ball of a time. Being my annual girlie trip too, it was so nice to spend quality time with my friends, and make new ones too!

Saying ‘Yes’ More

I found a dog-eared copy of the 2005 best selling 'Yes Man' book by laugh out loud funny Danny Wallace the other day...

Attending Eddie the Eagle Film Première (& Vlog of the Night)

Life can be a little bit surreal at times and in some respects it can feel, well, a little bit full circle. I know I'm being ambiguous but bare with me... On Thursday night I attended the film première of Eddie the Eagle, a movie made by Lionsgate UK, a company I used to work for.

A Blog & Vlogs Featuring Kick-Ass Mamas

I'm so lucky to have amazing ladies in my life-true friends who are bold, bright, damn right beautiful but also, most importantly, kind, generous in spirit, and super-sisterly. You can't ask for more than that in life from your mates, can you?!

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!

Daily Happy-Makers

Life can sometimes feel like a non-stop rollercoaster can't it, juggling family life, work as I/we try to be everything to everyone. The last few months have seen me take time out more, to relax daily and prioritise on what really makes my family and I happy. I always say, happy parents, happy children.

I'm recently back and just about recovered from, an incredible time at the Cannes Film Festival. If you missed my post all about the films, fashion and general fabulosity (that's a word, right?) of the fest, you can read it HERE. Truly exquisite food and films were consumed during my time there along with the most glamorous parties I've been to and this was my third and so far most favourite time at the festival.

My Time at The Cannes Film Festival

I've tried to write this post a couple of times before now but in all honesty I've only just about recovered from what can only be described as an absolutely epic time at the Cannes Film Festival, 5 days on from returning home on Saturday... One of the most famous film festivals in the world, this is the third time I've had the pleasure of attending this iconic celebration of film and it did not disappoint, let me tell you.
