It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day of blogging (Have I scheduled important tweets? Have I pinned my latest post?). But take a step back and you get a perspective on how much has changed over the past year. The BritMums collective of parent lifestyle bloggers, who write about everything from food, crafting, […]
Blogging is a wonderfully diverse and democratic world isn’t it?! When I first started my blog Honest Mum in November 2010, lost, lonely and suffering from a traumatic birth with my first son Oliver, I would never have believed that the small space of mine on the internet would one day become my full time […]
Amber Rudd, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department of Energy and Climate Change, on the #PowerToSwitch. You can follow her on @AmberRuddMP. I really enjoyed following the BritMums #PowerToSwitch Twitter party on Tuesday. Some fantastic savings were made and endless ideas shared on how to spend that extra cash. As many of you […]
There’s always such enthusiasm in the BritMums community when half-term arrives. It provides the perfect opportunity to get out, blow away the cobwebs and have some good old fashioned fun! It was quite a task choosing photographs for the Snapshot round-up this month, so many of you really made the most of your break! It’s brilliant to see so many heading […]
With the busy lives we lead, it’s important that we find moments for downtime, to break away from the madness and find our #BetterPlaces, those we visit time and time again, the locations around beautiful Great Britain that clear our heads and restore our soul. Syndol was curious to find out where we all go […]
I have some great home inspiration to share with you this month, home and design lovers. Some great home makeovers and inspiration, as well as a few great ideas I spotted over on Instagram. A fantastic kids room project from the Growing Spaces blog is up first. In order to maximise floor space, this post […]
This year at BritMums Live, we’re introducing a new type of session, one that allows us to get up close and personal with some of the bloggers who are grabbing headlines, hitting the airwaves and otherwise catching our eye. BritMums in conversation with… “BritMums in conversation with…” is a chat with 3 bloggers who are […]
New bloggers finding their new normal There is something about tragedy and intense periods of stress that changes you forever. There is a process, beginning with shock, sometimes grief, then anger. I’m told that eventually there is acceptance, and transition to a ‘new normal.’ I guess it’s kind of like having your first baby, when although […]
Receiving and sending things for Mother’s Day is a real joy. Now imagine how much easier it would be if you didn’t have to wait around for the postman for deliveries or if you could send returns at a convenient time for you. At the #MothersDayDoddle Twitter party, we’ll be talking about the things you […]
Being organised when planning a holiday might not be that important when you’re young, free and single, but when you have a family in tow, it can mean the difference between the success and failure of a trip. This month I have found a number of great travel checklists provided by experienced family travel bloggers. […]

Despite February being absurdly cold at points I feel Spring may be on the horizon. There are snowdrops in the chicken pen and the daffodils are beginning to poke through up in the woods, reminding me that Mother’s Day isn’t too far in the future. But before Spring is officially here; now that you have […]
Hello everyone, how has the week been for you? Mine has been manic but as busy as I have been all week I don’t seem to have completed any particular task, I enter the weekend with lots of half jobs to complete. Oh and I must apologise for going AWOL last week, half term saw […]
It’s been a month of ups and down. I started the month by writing a letter to my 6 month old to celebrate her half birthday. That was a nice moment, which hopefully she’ll enjoy reading in years to come. However, on a downside, this month I’ve learnt weaning isn’t as much fun as the happy […]
At the weekend, I did something that I found really scary. I am the Queen of Self Doubt, but hell, sometimes it’s good to put yourself out there. “Feel the fear and do it anyway” to quote Susan Jeffers. I spoke at a blogging conference about working with brands. Now, I am no expert at […]
