Summer has got to be my favourite time of year. Everything is brighter, there seems to be an optimisim and sense of adventure in the air. Even if you’re not going abroad there are so many opportunities to make an ordinary day a bit more exciting. We love to picnic outside, take more trips to the park, host family BBQs, visit the beach, even go camping. The last thing you want, especially during the summer, are pesky bugs and viruses coming along and ruining the fun. Of course with young kids these things are par for the course but you…

Like most mums, I think, I tend to live vicariously through Luisa. One of my vices is clothes shopping for her, there are just so many cute things you can pick up and thanks to online shopping it’s oh so easy for a few bits to fall in your basket.

You want to start out with quality kit…

Today I’m sharing something a bit different that we packed for our trip – suncream. That might sound a bit bonkers but I did my research and knew that the snowy east coast would require some sun protection. I was lucky to be working with Boots to trial and review their Soltan Once range. They kindly sent us a bit of a winter sun survival kit.…

We were recently given a every exciting opportunity to review the Baby Jogger City Tour stroller. If you’re a bit of a pram nut like me you’ll know the super compact buggy market is about to explode. These kinds of stroller are the latest must-have, especially for space conscious parents. So many of us live in apartments, drive cars with small boots and love to travel so space is always at a premium. The Baby Jogger City Tour takes these challenges facing modern parents and laughs in their face. The stroller is super compact, extremely quick to fold, has its own storage bag…
