Bears in the Night – A World Book Day 2015 Video

World Book Day reading Bears in the Night

Every night before bed, the kids have storytime. Jasmin at the moment loves Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Lemony Snickett’s The Dark. She wants to turn the pages herself and wants to be read them repeatedly. Milin, meanwhile, wants lots and lots of books and he’s at the stage where he knows if […] Read more…

Dolce & Gabbana’s tribute to mothers – an opportunity lost

Dolce & Gabbana - Runway RTW - Fall 2015 - Milan Fashion Week

Dolce and Gabbana might have been celebrating motherhood on the catwalk at Milan Fashion Week, but I’m struggling to find much about the performance to rejoice about. Their ‘Viva la Mamma!’ show has been the talk of fashion week. It’s not every day, after all, that you see a heavily pregnant model in a stunning dress and heels walking […] Read more…

When Atterley Road got in touch to tell me about their #ARWoman campaign, I knew immediately I wanted to be involved. The campaign is about recognising and celebrating the many women who inspire us – and I love the idea of being part of the conversation which does this. It wasn’t hard for me to […] Read more…

Mummy Best Friends – What Makes a BFF?

Friendship_5

Motherhood can be a lonely place. You can have company all day, but your children probably don’t make great listeners. You can be busy with things to do and places to go all week, but small talk at playgroup with a stranger isn’t likely to allow you to really talk through how you’re feeling. I feel […] Read more…
