My current favourite inspiring UK instagrammers

This isn’t a list full of huge Instagrammers with hundreds of thousands of followers, these are just a few of my favourites that make me smile with their content and beautifully curated feed. Some will be well known and others are little gems that should have way more followers than they currently do. As well

Mama gift box service Ovi and Reu’s Start Up Story

Ovi and Reu provide beautifully curated gift boxes for new and expectant mums, it’s not a surprise to find out that this business was started up by mums, three mums to be precise – one is even a grandmother.

Blossom, a date and meeting our baby niece #LittleLoves

Signs of Spring are appearing everywhere now aren’t they. We had one beautifully sunny day this week and I must say my mood improved hugely when there were no clouds in the sky. It’s incredible how much the weather and the time of year impact how I feel. I’ve definitely felt more productive and dare

Gin Festival – Date night at Blackpool Tower Ballroom

I remember the first time I tried a gin and tonic. I was staying with a friend in London and before we headed out to a gig, she poured me a glass of pre-mixed Gordons and tonic. I think I’d just had my youngest daughter so we’re  probably talking about five or six years ago. I’m

From MumBoss to Start Up – what’s in a name?

I set up my MumBoss Interview series a while ago now and each business owning mum I’ve featured has inspired me, and I hope you’ve found their stories interesting too. I love the idea of promoting and supporting mums that have taken the step to start something of their own, whether it’s a small side business that

Embracing the rain

This time of year can be rather awful weather wise can’t it? Come rain or shine I was brought up on going hiking every weekend, whether that was in the Lake District when I was tiny or through the Tamar Valley where we lived when we moved to Cornwall. Since becoming a ‘grown up’ it’s

Very best things about being a child

If someone asked you what the very best things about being a child were, what would you say? I was a child over 20 years ago and I wonder how my answers would differ from the ones my children would give today. A survey carried out by McCarthy and Stone shares what people over 60 thought were
