A Family Workshop at the Exquisite Harrogate Chocolate Tree (& Win a Trio Chocolate Easter Egg Worth £20)
Saturday was certainly a dreamy affair for this family of chocolate-lovers as we rendez-vous(ed) in Harrogate for a chocolate workshop at new chocolatiers Harrogate Chocolate Tree- and proceeded to spend the most delicious two hours of our lives creating chocolate treats together, tasting, decorating and basking in all things cocoa!
I don't fall for the 'I don't like Valentine's Day because it's too commercialised' kind of statements-I fittingly love, LOVE, LOVE it! Why? Because it's a day to celebrate love whether that's romantic or otherwise and no one can have too much love (or red roses) can they?!
I have the most amazing Valentine's competition for you lucky ladies and chaps too, with one reader destined to scoop this delicious feast of a goodie bag from Hotel Chocolat for their loved ones, or you know, themselves! Chomp!
A world first.
Wow, are the Christmas holidays over already?! What a break! Where to begin with what we got up to?! Firstly, RELAXATION was the name of the day, every single day, amigos.
We adore Beningbrough Hall, just outside of York, a short drive from where we live-it's one of those majestic baroque mansions with grounds that prides itself on being warm and child-friendly-and it is that. It also makes you feel utterly serene the moment you enter. An ideal antidote to Christmas mania.
filling the car with presents We are all incredibly excited to be heading to my folks' house, the home I grew up in, for the big day this year, and that means being prepared. Here I am packing the car up about to embark of one of the many #Journeysthatmatter to me, something that Esso are highlighting this season.
My husband Peter is an incredible photographer. Self-taught, he is my very own Testino taking the most wonderful photos of this family and our adventures. I love the photos that Peter snaps of our...

I adore Eternal Collection and never fail to find a statement necklace or earring set that make a stylish addition to my favourite LBDs.
I literally can't believe my baby boy, Xander turned 3 on Sunday, my charming, loveable, second born son is simply growing up too quickly and I'd like it to stop, STOP I tell you- I want him to remain my baby always, and I suppose he always will be just that, my littlest, youngest love.
Those who follow this blog know that this family are photo-mad, be it striking a pose in photographs ourselves or simply snapping family days out, the ordinary (park life, the food we love) and the extraordinary (film premieres, holidays, modelling shoots and more), usually my gifted husband Peter behind the lens.
It's that time again 'Who's the Daddy', my monthly feature where a Daddy blogger guest posts on my blog, sharing his voice and view on the world right now. I've been utterly overwhelmed by the response from the incredible Daddy blogging community both in the UK and abroad, along with my readers of course- since launching this series last month; it's a real privilege to share my blog with such a diverse and talented pool of bloggers writing about parenting and beyond, from their perspective. This week Papa Tont, Tony Pitt, is sharing this thoughts on Valentine's Day.
Folks, it's nearly Christmas! I know, it's hard to believe as it's only just October tomorrow but before you know it, you'll be buying Christmas trees and posting off letters to Santa (I've already got my hand hovering over the Chanel site, crossing fingers and toes)!
Last weekend saw my youngest son, Alexander turn 2, two whole years! I know every parent on the planet says the same thing, but doesn't time fly, people?!
I was recently invited to attend the Christmas in July exhibition where I would see all the latest products available for kids and adults out for Christmas, but with my childcare (the folks) on a three week vacation, I sadly couldn't make it. It did get me thinking about Christmas though and despite the summer heatwave, before you know it, it will be here, a mere five months away!
