London: A City Worth Exploring

Over the years John and I have been to London quite a few times. Last year we went at least 4 or 5 times. Even though Erin is only 2 we want her to experience different places in the UK, especially cities as diverse as London. We only have one trip planned this year for a day before we go on holiday in April but we have a lifetime to see as many things as possible. So, with that, I wanted to talk a bit about some of the things I want to do in London on our next few

The Perfect Family Holiday: UK Or Abroad?

Up until October of this year, I had never been on a proper holiday in the UK. I think a lot of this is down to not being able to drive as a lot of places I would want to go are not easily accessible by train or the journey would take a VERY long time. For example, I would love to go to places like Cornwall, Brighton, Newquay and to rent a cute little cottage in the middle of nowhere. Without being able to drive, it sometimes seems that holidays abroad are easier and I guess that’s probably why

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

The Best Cars For Family Road Trips

More and more families are opting for a ‘staycation’ and exploring the UK in their spare time, rather than paying expensive airfares to holiday abroad.

Here are some of the best cars for road trips. Honda Accord The Honda Accord has long been known as a road trip car, because of its reliability and the fact that it has plenty of space.

Toddler Friendly Holidays In France

It’s no secret that I love holidays. Anyone that knows me could tell you how much I love going away and not having a holiday in 2016 was horrible! For the longest time I have had it in my head that I want to go on holiday to France. I don’t actually really know why either. I have this idea of what a family holiday in France would be like. Whether or not that is how it would be though, is another story altogether. I’m terrible really because I’m always looking at holidays, even if we’re not ready to book

Toddler Travel Boredom Busters

Last week John and I headed off to London for a couple of days with Erin in tow. The last time we took her was last summer so traveling was much easier because she slept more! I’ll be honest, I was quite worried about how we would keep Erin occupied for 2 hours. Toddler travel has been a nightmare of mine for a while now. One of the best things about being a blogger is being able to turn to others for help, advice and inspiration. So many bloggers were there to help me out with ideas for a long
