Well last month was all about the blogging conference season with BritMumsLive! Wasn’t it a great event for those who went?! But we are back to business as usual with the video round-up and so I have some catching up to do! This round-up features submissions from bloggers who sent things to me in May […]
It’s always intriguing to know why we travel, what sparks the decision to explore different countries and cultures. Marian, who writes at Travel Shop Girl, explains in her post, The Origins of My Love for Travel, how her desire to experience new places originated from her love of cooking. A set of old Betty Crocker cookery […]
I suspect most of you who read this are parents and we are now just on the cusp of the summer holidays. Talking to friends I find that parents react in one of two ways, firstly the ‘Agghh, how will I get it all done before the holidays start?’ and then ‘What will I do […]
A lot of schools have already broken up for the summer break but if you’re like us, we’re waiting until the 24th July! Ridiculous really when you think continental schools broke up on the 6th June. Still we are enjoying some wonderful weather to accompany the Sports Day, the school trip and the many other exciting […]
What a whirlwind of a brilliant time I just had. Admittedly it’s taken me all week to scramble back to some kind of ‘normality’ but I’m closing the gap people, closing the gap. BritMums Live, tickets are already on sale for next year and I still haven’t fully digested this one. I think my […]
Hello, hello again….WHO is as excited as me? I bet none of you are because I can’t sit still for two minutes without a BritMums Live thought popping into my head. Wowzers guys, are you ready for the best blogging event of the year? Have you decided what to wear? Have you arranged to meet […]
The sun’s out and we’re in for a fabulous weekend, now that is something to smile about right because our British weather isn’t always so kind for example, I had to go into London one day this week. I left home and the sun was shining, I wore flat shoes and I didn’t take an […]
Phileas Fogg managed it in 80 days. I’m hoping we can get round the world a little quicker than that, thanks to the suggestions below. UK Some free time in London - A Guiding Life The Beaufort, Knightsbridge: a true boutique hotel – Mum’s Gone To… An amazing time at clueQuest - Family Travel Times Wales: Going down […]
Spring brings with it lots of wonderful things, but when it comes to the home, it’s all about makeovers. And that’s what I want to dedicate this edition of the Homes and Design round-up to – the Spring Makeover. Amanda at The Ana Mum Diary has given her bedroom a brilliant, beautiful makeover courtesy of […]
Welcome to the new BritMums Arts & Culture Round-up. To kick off, I thought I’d gather a collection of posts on a topic close to the hearts of many bloggers: books. Or – more specifically – World Book Day. As well as scouting round the blogosphere, I put out a request for WBD posts and […]
I have been on my toes all week this week, have you? Back to school, back to work, new projects, a groaning inbox and computer mishaps, why does every upgrade have to bring with it a tone of petty problems? I also was led to believe that Spring had sprung this week, were you? A […]
Who loves a good giveaway? I know I do, so now we are going to be rounding up some of the ones that have caught our eyes monthly on Britmums, so that you can enter and hopefully win some goodies for your friends, your little ones, and even you. KiddyCharts have a blog giveaway listing too […]
So the New Year is upon us and for many that means taking a fresh look at our homes and deciding which projects to embark on over the coming year. Maybe you’re feeling adventurous and have a big extension or maybe a bathroom or kitchen renovation project to work on, or maybe you just want […]
Depending what time you read this I could be splashing all over your social media today – you’ve been warned. Today it is my task to get the #teamhonkrelay baton over to Southend in Essex from my hometown of Gravesend in Kent. I shall be cycling the majority of the way – 17 miles to […]
Preparing the perfect roast turkey and Christmas dinner is a challenge even for avid cooks. To get answers, BritMums hung out with Marco Pierre White to quiz him about our most pressing issues. The hangout was sponsored by Lean on Turkey, where you can get tips and inspiration for cooking with fresh turkey, including recipes […]
Well that’s it people, as of midnight you can say goodbye to November and we all step in to the Countdown of The Year. There’s no need for me to remind you, you’re going to be bombarded with it on every single medium possible. Can you believe a school local to me forbid their primary […]
I met with a couple of blogging friends for lunch this week at a shopping centre central to us all and making the most of my time I turned up early to do a bit of Christmas shopping. Now I thought I was ahead of everyone else. As I parked the car I smiled to […]
