To celebrate John Lewis' opening a store in Leeds (whoop), I have a £50 gift card to give away to one lucky Honest Mum reader.
This week, I'm speaking to Zanna Van Dijk whom I had the pleasure of speaking with about our careers at an incredible workshop with Red Magazine on how to Jump Start Your Career In Tech! Zanna is a fellow professional blogger and all-round inspiring and wonderful human being, and it's an honour to interview her for my series!
Let me kick off by writing, I'm that girl who literally wants to be friends with everyone.
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...
If you follow me over on Facebook, you might have noticed I'm a little bit obsessed with 'going live'. OK, a lot!
I'm honoured to be a finalist at the BritMums in Brilliance Awards in the Social Media category so I thought it was high-time I shared my own social media tips for bloggers and business owners. Here's my Top 10.
Coachella kicked off last weekend, filling our instagram feeds with flower crowns, bohemian beauties and a certain nipple ring!

At the start of the summer, a crazy - yet incredible - thing happened to me.
While in Jamaica something a little bit surprising, and absolutely incredible happened.
Tomorrow we will be heading off to London before we embark on a family press holiday to Jamaica with Beaches Resorts. We'll be staying at the luxury Ocho Rios resort and can't wait to discover a country we've never been to before.

My husband Peter is pretty much a genius behind the camera, this much you probably know (well those of you who follow my blog regularly at least). I'm not too shabby myself, but work life sure is easier with a personal paparazzo to snap away for this here blog. No selfie-sticks needed here!
Yesterday was a whirlwind of a day as I spent it in London with my Mum (we arrived the night before) so I could speak on a prestigious panel for Mode Media first thing (Mode represent the display ads on my blogs) and set up this breakfast meeting with a panel on pro blogging and brand endorsement for a large audience of major UK brands.
For the next week I'll be enjoying a family holiday in stunning Halkidiki in Greece. I'll be totally switching off so there'll be no posts or linkies live from me or any social media interaction for that matter. My phone will be off as with all our family holidays. Fear not though, I'll be regramming on my return and blogging life will resume again before you know it. In the meanwhile, do check out any of my archive posts right here and why not head over to my style blog Mummy's Got Style too if you fancy a little fashion fix! I've also included some recent posts that are personal faves of mine you might like to read whiles I'm away! See you soon! Yasas! Vicki
Hey folks, you enjoying the summer? It's been pretty glorious here in Yorkshire! Thanks to all who linked up over at fabulous host Misplaced Brit last week. This week, I'm sharing a post showcasing a film I was commissioned to feature in for bareMinerals make up. It was a real blogging career highlight for me, I love being on camera and hope to work with this brilliant beauty brand again. Hope you enjoy it!
Isn't summer time simply the best (when they kids aren't making us feel like we're going slowly insane that is)- so far we've had some gorgeous Vitamin D fuelled days in the garden and out and about in glorious Yorkshire to make us happy. Why not get yourself a lovely glass or jug (ha) of Pimms and enjoy some of my favourite photos taken so far this summer-carefree, fun days pf the kids enjoying the rays:
