Family Travel: 24 Hours in New Lanark

Monday, 20 March 2017



A couple of weeks ago we embarked on our very first overnight adventure as a family to the magnificent New Lanark World Heritage Site in South Lanarkshire. It's not a part of Scotland we've travelled to before so we were really excited to explore a new area.

My Style: Laid Back Denim Dress & Breton Top for Mum's Day Off

Saturday, 11 March 2017



 
It's been ages since my last outfit post so I thought I'd follow on from my review of the Loch Fyne Hotel with a quick look at what I wore on day one. I had planned to take some beautiful pictures by the loch but the weather was not playing ball, so I'm afraid you'll have to make do with a few hastily shot photos of me scoffing tea & biscuits instead...  

Hotel Review: Loch Fyne Hotel & Spa in Inveraray, Argyll

Wednesday, 8 March 2017

 
My resolution to concentrate more on my own wellbeing was off to a good start in January when The Other Half bought me an overnight spa break at Loch Fyne Hotel in Inverary.

It's that time of year again, folks! The end of February sees the internet awash with entries to Mark Warner's fantastic Family Ambassador Programme with thousands of bloggers hoping to be the next #MarkWarnerMum or #MarkWarnerDad.

You may remember my entry for last year's competition in which I shared a skiwear wish list; highly appropriate seeing as I've just got back from a weekend on the slopes! More on that soon, I promise. But for now, lets leave behind the snow & cosy thermals and instead daydream about long sunny days & floaty frocks. Here's my top ten travel must-haves plus a selection of my current faves...

Here's why you should be more selfish this year

Tuesday, 28 February 2017



I don't really do New Year Resolutions as such but this year I promised myself I'd be more selfish in 2017. I, like many women, tend to put myself bottom of the to-do list behind the kids, The Other Half, work commitments, the dog, the house... With such busy lives it's no wonder our own needs get shoved to the bottom of the pile. But what effect is this neglectful behaviour really having on us?

It's been ages since I did a wish list so I figured it was about time I shared some of the lovely things I've been eyeing up lately. Check out this little lot...
