Solo Travelling With The Mia Tui Sydney Backpack

AD | Gifted item Usually when I go on a trip away anywhere it’s with John and Erin. As Erin still gets so tired and definitely can’t do a full day of walking this means we always have the pushchair with us. I don’t have to worry about carrying luggage or bags as either the pushchair holds it or John carries anything else. However, last weekend I went on a trip to London with my Mum and that meant needing to carry anything I needed for a couple of days. I have been to London before on my own and

Potty Training On The Go: Potette Review

AD | Gifted item Being a family who don’t drive can make days out or trips a bit of an issue. Without a boot to put everything in we either have to rely on suitcases, backpacks or putting bags on Erin’s pushchair. Now that Erin is potty trained she really hates to wear a nappy while we’re out and about and sometimes she decides she needs to go for a wee quite quickly. She hasn’t quite mastered the art of being able to hold it while we look for a toilet and even then, we usually need to take the

Making Memories With Trunki

Although we have been for plenty of weekends away since Erin was born, and even a holiday to Center Parcs, we had not been on a family holiday abroad until last week. As it was a pretty big deal I wanted Erin to get excited and this meant getting her some luggage of her own; a Trunki. I had seen these before Erin was even born and I thought they looked like so much fun. I mean, who doesn’t want a suitcase they can ride on? It took me quite some time to decide on which Trunki to choose for

Perfect Plus Size Swimwear From UKSwimwear

AD | Gifted item When preparing for a family holiday abroad, especially with children, it’s really easy to forget about yourself. I have had lists going for months for John and Erin as well as bags full of new things covering my bedroom. For me though, I ended up with 2 new pairs of shorts the week before our holiday and not much else. Although I luckily haven’t needed too much one thing that desperately needed replacing was my swimsuit. The swimsuit I was using, ever single week for Erin’s swimming lessons, was one I’d had since 2013. I remember

How To Pack For A Family Holiday Abroad

I don’t know about you but when it comes to sorting out a family holiday, I’m the one that does most things. This is a bit of me being a bit of a control freak and a bit of fear of us forgetting something important. On our last holiday to Center Parcs, I managed to forget clothes for myself because I was so stressed. The clothes I forgot to take were sat in a pile upstairs in our bedroom, ticked off the list but not in the case. I had to squeeze into a couple of my sister’s jumpers all

Personalised Travel Accessories From Bags Of Love

Travelling is supposed to be fun and I think the things you travel with should be fun as well. We already have Erin’s first big holiday booked for April 2018 and I want her to realise what family holidays are all about. We recently teamed up with Bags of Love to create some personalised travel accessories for the whole family. The first product I chose was a luggage tag. I always get worried about our bags going missing when we fly anywhere and I think having a luggage tag with your information on is really important. The luggage tags from

Babyzen Yoyo Travel Accessories

Our current stroller is the Babyzen YoYo+ and it is so near perfect for me! We originally got this stroller because of how well it suits people who travel a lot. The YoYo+ folds down super small and is perfect for taking on trains and for weekends away when you need the space in a hotel room. As nice as the stroller is on its own, there is a great range of travel accessories that you can get to go with it and Kiddies Kingdom is a great stockist! As I work from home and John works in an office,
