Our Weekend in Pictures-Including Hanging Out With Mr Bloom

This weekend was gushingly one where I literally kept thinking, 'Wow I'm so happy, I'm so lucky'...stick with me...You see we are all so busy rushing around aren't we, running from here to there, working, hustling, multi-juggling that these last few days went by a bit slowly in comparison and allowed me to truly take stock.

Feeling Thankful

Yesterday was Thanksgiving for my US and Canadian friends and I'm proud to write that a large part of my readership are now actually based in America. I've always had an affinity with Americans, my closest friends at Uni were from LA, New York and Chicago and I miss them all madly (thank goodness for FB and the rare London or LA get together).

My American Boy

I was actually going to name this post as 'The Americanisation of my son' with maybe the use of 'z' not 's' in Americansation to be, well a little ironic.

How Kids Made Me More Creative

Kids have honestly made me more creative. That's a fact. I was of course creative before kids working as a screenwriter, director and magazine editor...you get the picture. I was born creative, baby. Hear me out though, those kids took my creativity to another level. Throughout history (and I've found throughout my life so far too), creativity arises and thrives within limitations, be it time, budget, tools/access, they exist and are are actually vital in making creativity happen.

Tips for Travelling with Kids in February Half-Term

February half term will soon be upon us (where is this year going?!) and if we were not about to buy a new family home, we'd be jetting off abroad like many other families in pursuit of some golden sunbeams and much needed Vitamin D.

A Girls’ Weekend in London

One of my oldest, closest (and most gorgeous) friends Emma is in London from LA over Christmas so this weekend was all about quality time together, catching up face to face (Skype can never compare but helps since she moved Stateside), Christmas shopping and of course partying in sparkly London town!

Holiday Destinations This Christmas & New Year

We love holidaying in this house (well not in this house, that would be ridiculous and not like going away at all)...I'm talking escaping to still waters, golden sandy beaches and roaring heat.
