I brought a cheap Kindle Fire for #JasperBean so that he can watch nursery rhymes etc rather than use mine or S’s phone. I’m not keen on him using any tablets or phones at such a young age, so we do limit his exposure to it. However, when we are travelling, there are exceptions. Instead of forking out for an expensive holder, I have made one for him Continue Reading!
“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.” The Portrait of a Lady

99% of the people we come across tells us that #JasperBean looks like me and obviously I’m delighted to hear this! Unfortunately, apart from our physical similarities and personality, we including S, also suffer from the dreaded seasonal allergy – hay fever! I have had hay fever for as long as I can remember and every year we suffer from the following symptoms: Continue Reading!
Dressed by the Kids Day? What is it?
This year marks Oxfam’s second Dressed by the Kids Day. This year I have decided to relinquish all (fashion) control to my 2-year-old toddler and letting him transform my look for one day so that I, in turn, can transform the lives of those in poverty. Continue Reading!

* There has been another awful attack on our beautiful city of London on Saturday 3rd June. My thoughts and blessings go out to the family and friends who have been affected by this mindless violence. We need to stand united, we need to say it and mean it, we cannot tolerate extremism anymore. A massive thank you to the kindness of the public and emergency services, without you, we would be helpless.*
Since moving to our (new) house over a year ago, I have had blackout curtains for #JasperBean’s room on my to-do list. Continue Reading!
I love sweets! I just can’t get enough of them, they are the perfect pick me up snacks! You can literally have them anywhere! At home, at work, on public transport, in the garden, park, museum, cinema, bathroom? Wherever takes your fancy! They are conveniently sold everywhere too! So when it comes to #JasperBean, how can I say no to him? He’s only 2 and he’s definitely taken after my sweet tooth, however I would like to minimise the amount of sugar he consumes. I do make him lots of dried fruits and fruit leathers in my dehydrator, but when he asks for a gummy bear, what do I do? I make him my homemade fruit and vegetable gummy bears! Continue Reading!
