Win Stunning Statement Necklace & Earrings by Yosa

I love being the ambassador of exquisite jewellery and accessories brand Yosa and the latest pieces I'm showcasing here-the bejewelled mint and red bloom necklace and earring set are the perfect summer neck and ear candy to add some personality and glamour by day or night.

Our Weekend in Pictures-Welcoming in the Spring

The weekend was one relaxing affair, we stayed at my folks' house, the home I grew up in on Saturday night so Peter and I could enjoy a rare date night, and all woke up to buttery warm bagels and the best babysitters in town. Bliss.

Peter’s Portraits

Peter (and I ) were a bit blown away by the response to his landscape photography when I shared them on the blog recently so thank you to all who viewed, commented and shared. Now, as part of a regular photography feature by Peter, I'm sharing portraits, mostly of our children that I love.

Brilliant Blog Posts 26th February 2015

Welcome back to another week of #brilliantblogposts! I hope you've all had a lovely half term, my kids were either in love with one another or trying to kill each other. Good times.

Summer Days

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:

Spring Sunshine at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Isn't March turning out to be luminously glorious in the UK? My family's certainly relishing in this window of unexpected sunshine, fully enjoying a more outdoorsy way of life after being cooped up for what feels like forever this winter, set free to roam around, a renewed spring (and a jump) in our step. Yay!

Baby in a Basket

I've just found these brilliantly cute pictures taken at Christmas and wanted to show you them to share the sweetness this Friday.

Alexander’s New Hairstyle

So little Alexander, nearly 1 years of age has definitely got my curls-big bouncy, terribly cute ringlets of loveliness that paired with those deep brown eyes will no doubt melt a few hearts when he's older. "No, don't leave me, never marry" I wail! Thank goodness he's Greek so will live with until he's at least 30. Phew.

Splashing Around!

These photos were taken last week when the glorious British sun shone and shone and we spent most of the week splashing around.

Some of My Favourite Family Photos

My husband Peter is a genius behind the camera and works professionally alongside his career in IT. You can check out his stills for sale on iStockphoto here.

Sunshine!

The last few days have been super sunny in the UK and it's made us all feel fabulously happy again! There's nothing like warm walks in the park and eating al fresco to brighten up the day.

Getting Behind the Camera

It's funny because despite being a filmmaker, I mostly tend to leave the photographs to my fabulously talented husband Peter. He's a pro (although his day job is in IT) and is repped by the biggest photographic agency in the world.
