Attending a Pinterest UK Event with Celebrity Hair Stylist George Northwood

PinterestLondon is always a whirlwind for me, and last Wednesday was no exception. Taking my Mum along for a rare night away and quite the party (more of that soon), I had some exciting meetings by day (as always, I'll reveal more when I can)- as we made our way through chic coffee shops in Farringdon to the place I call home in the city, Charlotte Street Hotel, a bustling yet relaxing hub where meetings can turn to dinner easily, and being so close to Soho and the production company I have a TV series in development with, makes it the ideal place for my blogging and TV career to meet.

A Night at the Opera

Saturday evening saw me take out my favourite lady, my Mum, for a night at the opera-Opera North's 'The Marriage of Figaro' to be precise for a spot of culture in a spotty dress!

Oliver is one lucky 4 year old boy who thanks to this blog, receives some brilliantly entertaining and educational toys to review. He gets more excited than I do when the postman knocks!

We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside

Last weekend saw us head to the stunning Ox Pasture Hall Hotel for a weekend break. You can read our review HERE-warming you will want to either get a train or move to Yorkshire as soon as you do and you'll feel very hungry!

A Wonderful Weekend at the Ox Pasture Hall Hotel

We're often kindly offered breaks away thanks to this blog here but they're usually a little far for us to head to for a weekend now that Oliver has started school...However, thanks to the lovely The Boy and Me who recommended us to review the Ox Pasture Hall Hotel, we found ourselves not too far from home, in the picturesque seaside town of Scarborough for a gloriously sunny weekend of fresh country air, fine food and family fun!

Car-Mad Oliver

Oliver loves cars almost as much as baby Alexander adores footballs... the playroom is literally bursting with them (both).

Wrestling Time with Naughty Uncle Solos

Little Oliver (just 4) takes after my brother, his (not so little) Uncle Solos (31) who I'm currently calling Naughty Uncle Solos as he usually arrives to see the kids with bags of sweets on the naughty list (which aren't on the list to be fair), toy guns (definitely on the naughty list) and ice pops-mostly in the winter. Le sigh.
Chanel shades

Modelling Chanel Sunglasses

The other day, I received an exciting email from online sunglasses boutique Pret a voir asking if I might like some Chanel sunglasses to model and review. Obviously this took a lot of careful thought and consideration as you can imagine....So about half a millisecond later, I gracefully accepted while dancing round the living room!

Papa G’s Perfect Present…

Papa G's a football mad Gunners supporter and in time for Father's Day (held this year on June 17) he was kindly sent a handcrafted, beautiful architectural model of his beloved Arsenal Stadium (£99) from Chisel & Mouse . Just look at his face: think he's even happier than the day I was born. Nearly.
