Eeeek! ONLY ONE WEEK LEFT. Yes of course I am excited, yes of course I can’t wait and yes I am squealing like an over excited child at the thought of getting to meet so many bloggers next week. This will be my 4th or 5th conference - I’ve lost count – and for all [...]

Oh dear, oh dear, what happened to last week’s #MBPW? My fault entirely. Fancy thinking that in the hilly, rocky region of north Devon – on the coast too – you would find a continuous, strong internet connection and therefore be able to catch up on all work related things whilst watching the children play [...]
I was chatting to Mari, Britmums editor about how Britmums members are using video. It struck me that while we may not vlog as loudly and to camera, as dedicated YouTubers do, but, as a community, we do make a lot of use of video. More and more I am seeing videos embedded within posts, [...]
Last few days we have finally been enjoying some sunshine. This year it looks like the summer will never make an appearance, doesn’t it? Let’s hope that from now on we will have more sunny days than so far. I cannot wait to share some lovely reviews I came across last month. So as usual [...]
Hi! This is my ninth beauty round-up; can you believe it? Doesn’t time fly when you are juggling having fun?! I have been so incredibly busy these last few weeks; so apologies for the delay in this month’s round-up. The day job has somewhat taken over from blogging duties (I’m an accountant, so it’s been [...]
I sit here with half packed bags around me ready to go away with the family on a half term break, I imagine lots of families all over the UK are preparing to do the same, only this time dads really will be exclaiming ‘How many bags for one week??’ Excuse me while I rant [...]
What are your tips for bringing a good wholesome meal to the table night after night? What are the staple ingredients in your cupboards you can always fall back on? What are your favourite recipes that always work and never fail to please and what are you cooking tonight? Jen chats to Aly Hodge from [...]
Helen McGinn writer of the Knackered Mother’s Wine Club and winner of the Fortnum & Mason Online Drink Writer award joined us to talk about her journey from blog to book and to pass on some of her top wine secrets too. Our food editor Emma Raphael and author of A Bavarian Sojourn and Sarah [...]
Publishing a blog is a lot like self-publishing a book — you’re driven by passion and excitement. Here, bloggers who have self-published (or want to) share their tips and advice and answer the most pressing questions. We hung out with Clare MacNaughton from A Modern Military Mother, Nadine Hill from Juggle Mum, Helen Neale from [...]
I am sure that we all are so glad spring has finally arrived, and the last few days have been just amazing. This again reminds me how easily I get influenced by the weather. Are you the same? Apparently, as we had a very long winter, we should be looking forward to a really nice, [...]
There were so many posts about Easter trips to choose from, I decided to feature as many as I could, rather than highlight just a few. I hope you find some inspiration for future holidays and days out from the following blogs. If you have any recent travel posts I haven’t mentioned, please add them [...]
Sun, sun, sun and a bank holiday weekend, what could be better than that? Our BBQ is being dragged out of the garage and cleaned of cobwebs ready for action and I’m looking forward to a fab relaxing weekend. Pass the Pimms dah-ling. Last week saw the focus on four of the BiBs categories and [...]
The buzz word this week is BiBs shortlist and don’t I know it! I have been ploughing over them collecting information from each blogger and I am totally and utterly in awe of their EPICness. Some bloggers made it through to three different categories and I applaud them very loudly indeed. Vote for your favourite [...]
As the Easter holidays draw to a close AND the Spring springs on us at long last, what have you got planned for the weekend? We are taking our caravan out of hibernation and giving the old lady a good spring clean. I have invested in a television with DVD incorporated for chilly evenings, some [...]
One year. It’s my anniversary, not my wedding anniversary of course, hardly a month has passed although it does seem much longer. No the anniversary I am celebrating this month is one year of editing the BritMums blog and boy has that year flown by! Like any new job the first few months were a [...]
I have some very silly adults and some seriously talented children to share with you this month. Comic Relief may be over for another year, but so many bloggers have been sending me videos of their amazing events The very talented Princess, from The Princess and the Pickle blog, did some amazing dancing, no less [...]
Happy Easter everybody! Ok so it’s not officially till tomorrow but with Hot Cross Buns in the cupboard and Easter Eggs hidden safely we all know it’s Easter time; kids on holiday, house trashed and frazzled parents, come on only two weeks to go! We had a great fun Hangout with Maggy Woodley earlier on [...]
