Honest Mum On Holiday

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
