Soft play on rainy days – what fresh hell is this?

Soft play. It’s two words dreaded by parents but loved by children of all ages. It’s a bizarre place where adults take their children in a desperate bid to exhaust themselves. This is what I did on Sunday. It chucked it down Saturday night and continued to do so throughout the morning. With mum down…

I went to Europe CBD Expo and it was so chilled for an event

I’ve been to work events in the past and it’s always been so hectic. It’s pretty much normal to expect people running around trying to make sure everything is going right. There’s always an event manager having a panic attack somewhere because something hasn’t totally gone to plan. Last month I went to the EUROPE…

Why I’m a little in love with BAOBAO London

For the last year I have been drooling a lot over food accounts on Instagram and one that has always captured my attention, has always been Taiwanese restaurant BAOBAO London at BoxPark in East Croydon. After our visit, I’ll definitely be going back. For those of you who don’t know what this treasure of a…

I went to my first brewery launch and it was pretty awesome

A couple of months ago I attended a brewery launch for a craft beer company that’s been the talk of the town with their delicious craft beer. After four years operating from a pub garden, Surbiton’s Big Smoke Brew Co finally showed off their new shiny brewery premises in Esher and I got to go…

Killing Eve is back. Thrilled is an understatement.

We had friends over last Saturday so watching Killing Eve premiering it’s second season was a little delayed for me. The British soy thriller television series staring two strong female leads – Hollywood actress Sandra Oh and English actress Jodie Comer – has been a talking point the last few months. Especially since America has…

Little Ships, Ramsgate Breakfast Review

Last month I met up with my friend Jo and we went to the Little Ships cafe and restaurant on the Harbour front in Ramsgate. I’m not sure why I’ve not been there before but when I finally did, I can see why people have been raving about it. It’s like a well known fact…

Our weekend in Kingston

A few months ago, we travelled to London to visit my mum for Mother’s Day. But the weekend was a little all over the place, which meant the actual Mother’s Day wasn’t spent with my mum, but it was spent with my little family which was lovely. So here’s the thing, with Mother’s Day approaching,…

TV is so good this year, I’m loving it

Every year TV gets better and better. But this year, tv channels and broadcasters are pulling out all the stops to compete with streaming services such as Netflix or Prime. This year some great tv has really stood out from the crowd and there are shows coming back to rock the boat too. Whether you’re…

Afternoon Tea at The Grosvenor

A few weeks ago, I had afternoon tea at The Grosvenor on Park Lane and it was fabulous. Thanks to a very lovely client of mine, my birthday present last year was a Bottomless Champagne Afternoon Tea for two and after months of trying to organise a date that worked for all of us, Sunday…

Blean Woods is stunning, I’d love to go back

A few weeks ago, on a cloudy rainy day, Emily and I met with my friend Emma and her two boys, Elliot & Adam, and visited Blean Woods in Canterbury. Just a 15 minute drive from Ramsgate, Blean Woods is an enchanting forest and nature reserve. If you’re looking for somewhere to go for a…

Thanks to Chlobo for this amazing cake!

A few days ago, it was my mums birthday. But not just any birthday, it was the big 6-0! Like any big milestone birthday, trying to decide what to get for the special person, alongside how to celebrate their special day can prove difficult. And with mum, it’s a nightmare trying to decide what to…

Eating in Kingston with a toddler in the evening

I learnt something about eating in Kingston with a toddler. By day, there are endless opportunities and places to visit, with many dishes on offer for small appetites as well as big. But the one big hurdle, we had it when we visited Kingston a couple of weeks ago, was where we could eat with…

We visited The Hornby Centre and Emily loved the trains!

Last month, Sam, Emily and I visited The Hornby Centre in Margate. For those who are unfamiliar, Hornby are a huge part of toy history in the U.K. and worldwide. Producing some of the most iconic train toys and collectibles, the Hornby Centre is a fan favourite for anyone who has interest in trains. It…
