Screen-free activities for toddlers

Screen-free activities for toddlers

Parenting  |  Ashford

With a third national lockdown upon us, I thought what better time to share with you some fun, screen-free activities for toddlers?
I try to do activities that I enjoy taking part in as well, and most importantly take very little time and effort to set up or clean after. This is crucial now that we are juggling so many things from home.

Before and after – renovating our small cloakroom with Topps Tiles

Before and after – renovating our small cloakroom with Topps Tiles

Interiors  |  Ashford

I am beyond excited to be partnering up with Topps Tiles and share our small cloakroom renovation journey with you.
Ever since we got the keys to our house 3 years ago, I have been contemplating renovating our cloakroom but we kept delaying it for no particular reason.
Ironically, we started looking into hiring tradesmen in February last year, without realizing that one month later we would end up in a national lockdown.

Delicious pork loin steaks in creamy shallot and mushrooms sauce – ready in 20 min

Food  |  Ashford

It’s Veganuary, yet here I am sharing one of my most favourite and quick recipes – pork loins steaks in creamy shallot and mushrooms sauce.
One thing that the lockdown has undoubtedly changed is our eating habits. Although I am a confident cook and I enjoy discovering and trying new recipes, prior to the pandemic I was quite often relying on takeaways and lunch or dinner dates.

5 reasons why you should book a staycation at Cave Hotel in Canterbury

Lifestyle  |  Canterbury

Home to beautiful, historic towns and villages, wild coastline, and picturesque countryside, Kent is a wonderful place to discover. We have lived here for over three years and we’re still in awe of its beauty.
2021 will likely be another challenging year for traveling, so we will undoubtedly turn to the UK when planning our next staycation.

How to create a spa day ritual at home

How to create a spa day ritual at home

Beauty  |  Ashford

Imagine the bliss of a perfect spa day. The relaxation, the warmth, the total escape from the outside world. For some of us, a spa day may be out of reach for a little while (unless, of course, you’re lucky to live in a country that is not in a national lockdown).
The benefits of a spa break go beyond beauty treatments and can help you to relax, unwind, and achieve a sense of mindfulness. But there’s nothing stopping you from re-creating that soothing and relaxing spa day atmosphere in your own bathroom.

Lifestyle  |  Ashford

Make a real difference this Christmas and shop from local, independent shops as they need our support more than ever.
This year has been a challenging and stressful year for us all, but in particular for small businesses who are doing everything they can to stay open and offer a safe and enjoyable shopping experience.
Local shops across the country have been forced to rethink their business models. They’ve launched online shops almost overnight, they’re offering click and collect or same-day delivery services.
