This is a collaborative post. For what seems like an eternity, trendy interiors have been rocking the monochrome look. White walls. Black and white tiled floors. Inkwell prints. Even the soft furnishings have been black and white. At last count, #monochrome had been tagged #11,278,092 times on Instagram. And I for one have had enough of it. Mercifully, it seems some interior companies feel the same. Embracing colour In our home, we’ve never fully embraced interior trends. Let’s face it, I’m a work from home mum. It’s never going to be a show home. We do have monochrome in the bathroom and…

For the past few months, we have been blogger ambassadors for Warwick Castle. I have always loved the attraction and remember going there on school trips as a child. I took my brother and sisters there for a day out when they were younger and now it’s time to introduce our own children to my favourite castle. We decided to head there on Saturday to finish the Easter holidays with a bang. Horrible Histories maze at Warwick Castle Last time we visited, I wrote about what to do at Warwick Castle. Unfortunately we totally ran out of time on that visit and…

I’ve always been a huge advocate for trying new things. As a family we all love to try new sports, visit places we’ve never been to before, taste new flavours and challenge ourselves.

The last week has passed in a camping-induced blur. We were only away for a long weekend, but we packed it full of exciting days out and it was a resounding success. A mini break We stayed at a Church Farm campsite in a little village called Sixpenny Handley near Salisbury. The campsite was large and not too busy. It had a bar, restaurant, playground and clean facilities. Everything you need for a hassle-free camping trip. If we’d been a bit more organised, we probably would have camped either nearer to the coast or closer to the attractions we were visiting. We spent…
