Jojo Maman Bebe sun protection: Review

Please note, this is a collaborative post with Jojo Maman Bebe but all views, opinions and hat-loving toddlers are my own. Since having children, I have been notably more aware of the effects of sun on the skin. I’ve never been a sunbather, but I also don’t bother too much with sun protection for myself. For the children though, it’s a totally different story. Whilst I do appreciate that sun screen is very effective, where possible I prefer the girls to cover up in strong sunshine. This is sometimes easier said than done, especially for Lia who is a huge…

Self-catering luxury at Blairmore Farm Review

Last week we were lucky enough to spend the week at Blairmore Farm, which provides luxury self-catering accommodation in the Perth and Kinross area of Scotland. The purpose of our stay was for me to review Blairmore Farm, but since coming home I’ve been putting off writing my review. Why? Because I have no idea how my words or photographs could possibly do justice to such an amazing place. Booking a stay at Blairmore Farm I was asked to review Blairmore Farm by Embrace Scotland – the premier resource for booking self-catering holidays in Scotland. From that point on, I was in…

Thankfully this year, Prezzybox have come to the rescue with some fabulous, personalised items that are just perfect for my dad. The first thing is a personalised whiskey glass. On the body of the glass, it…

Thursday Photo #108

This week, we have been on holiday at Blairmore Farm in Perthshire, Scotland. It is quite literally the most beautiful, luxurious place we’ve ever stayed. The self-catering cottage is on a working farm with highland cattle, sheep, horses and chickens. The cottage itself is huge with every luxury you could possibly imagine, from a bread maker to fluffy towels and robes. The girls have spent the majority of the week outside in the fresh air. They have fed the cattle, collected eggs from the chickens and been swimming in Loch Leven. We haven’t eaten out once because eating at the…

Dressing for Father’s Day

Please note, this post was written in collaboration with House of Fraser. All views, opinions and sorry tales involving expensive sunglasses are my own. I don’t very often buy clothes for my husband. That’s not because I don’t feel comfortable choosing clothes for him, in fact I think I know his style quite well. The reason I don’t buy clothes for him is because I just never go clothes shopping – I can’t remember the last time I bought clothes for myself either. A good online store like House of Fraser that sells men’s clothing is really useful for me.…
