PUT THE SPARK BACK IN YOUR LOVE LIFE – WITH TRAVEL

YOU know what’s it’s like. At the beginning of any relationship, you just can’t get enough of each other. You’re mad for each other. Crazy and full of non stop passion. But eventually life takes over. (It has to) And careers and deadlines and children and houses, and everything else, takes all of your attention. Our love lives can often be put unintentionally on the ol’ back burner as we

WIN A BEAUTIFUL SILK SCARF

IT’S getting nippy out there. So it’s time to wrap up warm and get acquainted with your big knits, mittens and layers. Chunky woollen scarves are wonderful and cosy, but, if you want something softer and more delicate to keep you warm then I have just the thing for you all… Because the fabulous brand CharmChuri London have given me this stunning scarf to give away to one lucky reader. CharmChuri

HOW TO GET A SPIRITED CHILD TO SLEEP

I DON’T normally write ‘how to’ posts for parents. One, because I am no expert. And two, well because even the experts don’t always have the answers. Us mums, us dads, we all know that there is no rule book for parenting. No essential guide book that will make this parenting malarkey a breeze. It’s tricky. It’s testing. It’s pretty much all trial and error. But goodness me, if there

QUIRKY HOLIDAY PLACES I’D LOVE TO VISIT IN THE UK

AH travel. There’s something about staying in a different place, having a change of scene, that’s just so good for the soul. Certainly if I had my way, I would travel every single week to a different destination if I could. But when you think about travel, how much do you think about staying in the UK? Because although whilst it’s true, we may not have the best weather in

LADIES, ISN’T IT TIME WE EMBRACED OUR AGE?

IN my life I am surrounded by beautiful, damn right fabulous women. The kind of women that make me proud to know them. The kind of women who make juggling modern life demands seem easy. The kind of women whom I know, you would all love. One of my good friends is one of these super women. Beautiful, clever, talented, funny and kind. She has a creative and demanding job.

A LITTLE BLACK DRESS (FOR A NIGHT ON THE RAZZLE)

ON Saturday night I gave a new beauty of a dress it’s first outing. For a night on the town with some of my dearest friends (here I am with Christina and Laura) to celebrate the lovely Laura’s birthday with some early birthday drinks. (Happy Birthday darling!) Feeling a bit grotty from a couple weeks of catching one bug after another, I felt instantly better when I popped on my

IT’S TIME TO DECORATE OUR BEDROOM! (FINALLY)

WE’VE been in our house for three years now. And our lovely 1920s house, still needs a lot of work. When we moved in, with Elsie at just six weeks old (yep, totally mad!), it was like an 80s woodchip city. And although we’ve done lots of work on the house already – knocked down walls, put in a new kitchen etc etc – the one room in the house that
