The lantern parade in 2014 at BeWILDerwood!

If You Go Down To The Woods Today – BeWILDerwood Half Term Glorious Glowing Lantern Parade!

Every year in the October half term we take a trip to BeWILDerwood to enjoy their Glorious Glowing Lantern Parade. It is, actually, one of the best times of the year to go and the pinnacle of their year as far as we are concerned. I mean we love it in the summer, who couldn’t? Basked in glorious dappled sunlight filtering through the trees and it’s a beautiful place to be but there’s something about halloween week at BeWILDerwood which […]

Ciao Gusto At Ocado – Italian Food At Its Best!

On Wednesday night I took a little jaunt back to London for an evening Italian dining at the Giovanni Ranna restaurant near Great Portland Street.

Ocado is online grocery shopping at its finest and now, when searching for authentic Italian ingredients, you simply have to click on the Ciao Gusto Shop tab within the website […]

A Stokke Party At Back In Action – George Street, Marylebone!

I’ve worked with Stokke for a very long time now and am more than a fan of their products. I feel like I know all of them even though I’ve only actually owned two (a Stokke Xplory buggy and the Stokke Steps high chair) because once you’re bitten by the Stokke bug you just fall in love with the whole range. I frequently pour over the latest colours for Style Kits (a way of changing up all the Stokke buggies […]

#PuppyInMyPocket Party!

Last week we held a #PuppyInMyPocket party alongside a Twitter party for the same theme. We played games like picking up pairs (Puppy In My Pocket pairs of course), couloured in, poured over word searches, ate cakes (no party is complete without cakes) and played with some toys from the new range! We had brilliant fun joining in both for real at home and on line with the Twitter party and loved watching other people win some of the fantastic […]

The MiFold Booster Seat Is Smaller Than An iPad – Review!

I’m very concerned about car seats and always have been. Both my children were in the rear facing infant seat until they were nearly two and for safety I felt this entirely necessary. Lots of my friends moved their children up one as soon as they reached the minimum weight but while mine were still small enough and under the maximum weight I wanted them in that rear facing seat as long as they could. Once they had outgrown it I then went […]

A New Oven For A New Kitchen!

When we moved house in February I knew that I wanted to do lots of work to our new house and had some big decisions to make for what, when and how. As well as a loft conversion we had our heart set on a new kitchen and I took a very long time ruminating over exactly what I desired. It was dark and cold back then and I couldn’t face starting anything serious until the summer months arrived with sunshine to […]

The Railway Children With Justin Fletcher As Mr Perks!

On Saturday Florence and I took two of our new friends to London to see The Railway Children at the amazing purpose built theatre near Kings Cross station. The theatre itself is in fact a replica station and very exciting on its won without even seeing the show and having been before (twice) we were super excited to see what our pals thought. The first time Florence and I saw the show was on opening night and we thought it […]
