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.
Last week saw 'part' of this family spend 7 days in Marbella, staying at the palatial Casa Haniel, a James Villa Holidays' villa in San Pedro, above, for a fabulous, relaxing, fun and invigorating week away.
So yesterday saw me head to Manchester for a special meeting with renowned modelling agency Nemesis. One of the biggest modelling agencies in the UK, they discovered and made so many of today's British stars, famous: Robbie Williams, Gary Barlow, Melanie Sykes, Vernon Kay, Michelle Keegan and as of today, they're representing little old me!
Yesterday was a rather special day for this family as along with my husband Peter, our child Oliver, 4 and my friend Sharmin who was visiting from Amsterdam, I attended the world premiere of Paddington.
My work as a professional blogger is so diverse that no day is ever the same and I love it all, firstly documenting our lives as family right here along with my other passions-writing, food, beauty and style.
It was an honour to be asked to speak on two panels about my professional blogging career this weekend at the Tots100 Blog Camp in Birmingham and share what I know.
It was fabulous to meet so many of you and I'm so glad with the feedback that my sessions informed and inspired so many of you.
For those who couldn't make the brilliant event (I hope you can book the next one), I wanted to share 10 of my top blogging tips from my sessions.
So folks as many of you know, after reviewing one of Nova Harley's beautiful baby bags over on my style blog Mummy's Got Style, I was asked to model for the brand worldwide (eek)...and here are some of the photos from the shoots!
So you might remember this shot of me from a post that went live a few weeks ago, for the gorgeous designer baby bag brand Nova Harley of the Ultimate Baby Bag Company who gifted me their Manhattan bag in lemon...well since that image was published here, I was contacted again by Nova Harley for some BIG news (eek!)....and boy did it made my day, forget day, it made my entire YEAR!
