A family staycation at The Stratford Hotel

A family staycation at The Stratford Hotel

Lifestyle  |  London

Like many parents, you probably don’t want to travel anywhere except home with your young baby. They need a lot of attention and care, so traveling long distances and going on holiday can be difficult to manage.
Before we booked our first holiday together as a family of three, we enjoyed a luxury staycation at The Stratford hotel – a stylish urban sanctuary in the up-and-coming East London.

Easy weekday outfit for running errands

Easy weekday outfit for running errands

Fashion  |  Naples, Italy

It’s the unspoken rule of life: the one day you decide to run to the post office wearing a sloppy outfit, that will be the one day you run into a work colleague or friend.
Let’s be real, none of us are looking to wear their best clothes for a day of grocery shopping or nursery runs, but there’s something to be said about easy outfits that can be thrown on in a second that will make you feel comfortable and put-together.

Afternoon tea in London with the little ones

Afternoon tea in London with the little ones

Parenting  |  London

To celebrate the launch of Beatrice & George (sold exclusively at childrensalon.com), the brand treated Noah and me to a scrumptious afternoon tea at The Brown’s Hotel in London.
We spent a delightful afternoon with our dear friends, Alecsandra and her handsome little one, Max. Our boys were dressed up for the occasion, of course, and wore the cutest outfits from Beatrice & George. We bribed them with scones and mini chicken sandwiches and managed to capture these lovely images below.

Best 10 check pieces I’ve found on the high street

Best 10 check pieces I’ve found on the high street

Fashion  |  Ashford

It doesn’t take a genius to see the overwhelming amount of check pieces currently parading over on Instagram. From coats to dresses (and just about everything in-between), I’ve found the best 10 check pieces on the high street, with prices starting at £29.99.
This timeless print is versatile and easily styled with almost every piece in your wardrobe. I love the look of a cocooned check coat, like this one from Marks & Spencer, with a fit and flare skirt and knee boots.

Easy-peasy family pasta recipe (baby-friendly, too)

Easy-peasy family pasta recipe (baby-friendly, too)

Food  |  Ashford

A quick and super healthy pasta dish is a midweek staple and this recipe is perfect for feeding the entire family. As a busy mum, I know how important it is to have a variety of quick and easy recipes on hand that your entire family will love.
The simple sugar snap peas, cherry tomatoes, and goat’s cheese sauce is so versatile and tasty that you can mix this dish with any veggies your little one prefers, and it makes an easy nursery or school lunch option, too.
