Avignon

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.

My Top 20 Tips For Packing & Travelling on the Eurostar with Children

As much as I love family holidays together, travelling with kids can be, well...a bit of a nightmare! Packing for the whole family can become a full blown military operation ( I start 2 weeks before the holiday, yes really)- while flying with young kids (my own are worse on short than long haul-go figure?) can frankly, induce fine lines and grey hair by arrival. Thank goodness for Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream pre and during flights, and in-seat yoga (and breathe)! Seriously though, to avoid the headache, travelling by Eurostar with kids is far less hassle than flying when travelling to mainland Europe.
