I've always been an accessories gal! Hats, shoes, bags...you name it, I covet it. In particular, I love jewellery and have always found it to be the perfect way to finish an outfit, the icing on the cake: the piece de resistance, so to speak...
I recently read an article that said 1 in 3 women LOVE cleaning! Whaat! Like Monica from Friends, apparently one third of the female population are hardwired to love cleaning, washing, scrubbing, drying and polishing! *shocked face, need a lie
So I'm now three weeks into my vegan diet and what initially started out as a temporary detox has turned into well...a bit of a way of life! Let's see how things go but so far, so good folks!
Father's Day is just a few weeks away on June 21st and this year, the kids and I will be treating my husband Peter to a handcrafted artisan gift from the gorgeous website All By Mama.
I've always been a huge fan of fashion illustration and one of my favourite artists in this field is my incredibly talented friend, artist, and blogger Cara Gray.
Just over a year ago, thanks to a post I'd written on Mummy's Got Style, I was approached by the luxury designer baby bag brand Nova Harley to model for them. At the time I actually couldn't believe it (there might have been some booty shaking round my living room to celebrate)!
I love kidswear that is playful, fun and inspires creativity, so I'm naturally a huge fan of the new clothing line by Enchanted Forest and Friends which does all of the above. I was delighted when they asked myself and the boys to review their latest range as well as kindly offering 1 lucky Honest Mum reader the chance to win a £50 gift card.
If like myself you have worked your way through your easter eggs and are ready for your next chocolate fix, you'll be very excited about my latest competition. My favourite chocolatier Hotel Chocolat is offering a lucky Honest Mum reader the chance to win a £50 gift card. Amazing huh?
My own Mum is my biggest inspiration, the smartest, most selfless woman who did a cracking job of raising my brother, Solos and I and offers me crucial childcare, support and love in raising my own two sons. I literally don't know what I would do without her. I always try to make sure my mum knows how much I appreciate her. From simple spontaneous texts telling her that I love her to glamorous nights out at the opera. However, I still like to make a big fuss about her on Mother's Day. Yes its driven by commercialism but who cares! It's the one day of the year that I can dedicate to the number one woman in my life! I didn't think my mum could be more amazing if she tried, but she has surpassed herself and is kindly offering one lucky reader the chance to win a £50 voucher for my family's multi-award winning restaurant The Olive Tree to be used this Sunday (15 March 2015) as an amazing Mothers Day treat!
There are so many milestones in your children's life. Their first step, word, date (eek I'm dreading this one and luckily have a long time to wait there-phew...). The latest 'real' milestone in the Broad...
When founder of Mellow Duck, Helen Cook contacted me about a new venture she was setting up-upholstered pods perfect for families like mine, and in my hometown of Ilkley too (I grew up in this tiny town before moving to Leeds), I couldn't wait to add one to my own home and spread the word on her beautiful new business.
It's an absolute pleasure to feature this lip-lickingly good competition for mamas everywhere-a stunning chocolatey hamper by Hotel Chocolat created especially for my readers (you lucky lot)!
I'm really excited to share the beautiful Red.Blue.You's personalised canvas company with you all and offer one lucky Honest Mum reader a canvas of their own worth £99 (size A0).
I love experimenting with my hair and deviate from super curly or soft waves to poker straight hair from week to week.
Huge fans of the first film, Dolphin Tale (the touching story of the bond between a boy and a dolphin Winter, whose tail was lost in a crab trap), we simply can't wait to watch Dolphin Tale 2 this half term.
Case App allows you to create your own stunning iPhone, iPad and Samsung Galaxy cases with silicone lining (great if you have kids like me who like to play and throw your phone around), and laptop skins too!
