brilliant blog posts-Honest Mum

Hola mi amigos and welcome to this week’s #Brilliantblogposts: the hottest link-up fiesta around.

If it’s not obvious from my intro, I’ve just returned from a week in Spain courtesy of James Villas, where I perfected the art of Spanglish whilst exploring the picturesque Jalon Valley.

From our villa we had the most spectacular views of the surrounding vineyards and lemon groves so readjusting to deadlines has been tough, particularly the lack of vino from midday!

Seriously, after the whole ‘passportgate’ fiasco of our Marbella holiday, it was wonderful to be able to to get away with the entire family, with my parents kindly providing babysitting services so Peter and I could enjoy a couple of ‘date nights’ and for us all to switch off in the Spanish sun for a week.

I’ll be posting about our getaway soon, but in the meantime my instagram is full of gorgeous snaps from the holiday.

But for now it’s back to reality and back to this week’s Brilliant Blog Posts. Thank you to everyone that linked up over the past 2 weeks, you guys rock!

This week I’m sharing a new campaign with the uber stylish French online outlet, La Redoute.

And it was the best kind of campaign too- featuring not just myself, but my eldest son Oliver, and shot by my husband Peter, it was a real family affair!

Combining food and fashion (my 2 greatest passions after family), I made one of my all time favourite French recipes of a warm Nicoise salad, whilst Oliver and I modelled their clothing for this blog and also over on their site too.

Definitely one tasty collab!

As ever with this linky, please link up your posts, the more the merrier, across all genres and simply add my badge or link back on each post you add, and leave some comment love.

    I’m so envious of your holiday in the sun (yet again), can’t wait to read all about it…! Though I’ll be in Santorini in a few weeks’ time so I’ll get my own back with my pictures of sun, sea and sand, hehe!!

    Thank you for hosting my lovely, have a great weekend
