Boden Summer Fashion in Tuscany

When we pack for Summer in Italy, it’s always a happy time, as we know the weather is guaranteed to be brilliant and we can actually wear the summer dresses and clothes we’ve wanted to all year. This year would be extra fun too, as our daughter is now a toddler and we have fun dressing-up together and in my books, twinning is winning with your little ones! One of my favourite brands, Boden also do a fantastic label for the little’uns called Mini Boden and we decided we’d rock a bit of Boden summer fashion on our holiday…

My Slimming World Journey

So anyone who’s followed my blog for a while will know I’ve been a Slimming World member for about 5-6 years now?! (WTF!!).

As you may be aware if you follow my instagram or twitter, I’ve been away with our daughter for nearly a month, in Italy. We are lucky to have family retired there who are more than happy to have us for lengthy visits each summer. It means we can have a holiday, but also just live out there, work remotely and have support with childcare. It really is a lovely situation and since going freelance and since hubby started his own agency, we try to maximise the flexible-working.

Before the holiday

Before we left in June, I was maxed-out, mentally! Our little one has never slept through the night more than two nights in a row and she’s nearly two, so we’re always sleep deprived. We were six months into a total home renovation (The House Project) and it felt like it was never going to be finished and we were 3 months into selling our old home. That, teamed with running our own businesses and bringing up a toddler, meant that we were both burned-out. Exhausted.
