Barton Arcade Manchester and the Barton Bloggers

A few weekends ago I got to do something really cool with a bunch of awesome bloggers from WeBlogMCR…we got to be #BartonBloggers for the day and get to know the ins and outs of Barton Arcade, Manchester.

When I was invited, I was promised opportunities to discover new shops, eat, drink and catch-up with some fabulous Manchester bloggers – how could I possibly say no? The 5 hour fun-filled day flew by and we all left Barton Arcade excited about the new things we’d discovered. Want to know what they were? Read on…

Pool Fun in Tuscany – Mummy Friday

I thought I’d send you a blog and vlog from sunny Tuscany this Friday for #MummyFriday (also on my instagram and twitter accounts), because, well, why not?

We were so overdue a proper holiday, what with the house renovations, selling our old house and us both running our own businesses (oh and a nearly 2-year-old that still doesn’t sleep through the night!)…so we decided to take an epic break over at the in-laws in Tuscany. The hubby is returning for a week, back to the office, but the little lady and I are staying for almost a month! Eek!

What’s been the best already (other than the rest and relaxation and getting some much needed vitamin D!), is watching our little girl absolutely thrive in the sun and water. She adores running around naked and jumping in the pool and for the first time in months, she never seems to be bored! Not to mention she’s loving all the attention, fun and games with Nonna and Grandad.

So here’s a little video we’ve put together of our fun in the pool on our first week here in sunny Tuscany.

What’s everyone else doing this #MummyFriday wherever you are in the world?

(By the way, Flo’s wearing a fantastic UPF 50+ protected swimming top and bottoms, sent to us by the awesome Sunuva. She loves her rash vest and frilly bottoms and we feel better when there’s not much shade over the pool, as know her skin is well protected from the sun!).

Summer Wedding Guest Outfit – Buying Tips

It’s the season isn’t it…wedding bells are chiming up and down the country. If you are lucky enough to be invited to a summer wedding, you are going to want to look your best. That usually means treating yourself to some occassionwear and getting all dolled-up! Yay!

It is nice to have the chance to really dress up for a change, but shopping for your wedding guest outfit can also be a bit daunting. The fact that we don´t really wear this type of clothing in our everyday life means that many of us feel a bit out of our depth don’t we?

With this in mind I have put together this quick tips post to help you shop for the ideal summer wedding guest outfit, which should make things easier for you…Continue reading
