I’ll start this off by saying up until a few weeks ago I would have wanted you to give me a swift kick in the shins if I was ever caught writing ‘an open letter’ or anything similar. No shade on anyone who’s a fan of that kind of thing, in fact some of my favourite posts from other bloggers start that way – it’s just not for me. Or at least it wasn’t. Anyway, here I am, personifying my blog. Dark days indeed. Dear Blog; It’s Not You, It’s Me. Me, Me, ME. You seem to have gotten a little…

Unless you’re new around here you’ll have heard of Alphabet Babies who kindly sponsored me to attend BritMums Live this year. A few months ago I introduced the company to you and shared a little about the director, Alexis Viswanathan. If you’d like a bit of a recap pop off and read that short post before we get stuck in here.     Alexis is a mum to twin boys; former teacher, company director, literacy advocate, bookworm and early years champion. Our conversations over the last months and the articles I’ve read about her have left me in awe. If I…

Britmums Live is an annual conference for parenting bloggers to mingle, connect with brands and attend seminars. It’s a beast of an event that must take monumental planning to pull off. This year Britmums Live was held in The Brewery, a conference venue attached to The Montcalm hotel in London. The event was only for one day but I flew out on the Friday. I can’t thank my wonderful sponsor Alphabet Babies enough for this opportunity. You can find out more…

You might have seen I recently posted my bloggers wishlist sharing a few bits and pieces that I’m lusting after. The whole thing really just wet my appetite and got me thinking about what my dream office would be like. Something I really love about our house is that the attic has been converted into a useable space. Matt & I have claimed it as a grown up retreat. Currently it’s an office / second living room / bar. This setup works really well for us because the living room can be a mad space full of toys and fun things for Luisa…
