What the kids wore: Bright & Bold with shopDisney [ad/gifted]

This post features gifted products from shopDisney, though all words, opinions and photos are my own. Arlo looks up to Athena for so many things, if he’s unsure of himself he will look to her and mimic whatever her reaction is… fairly annoying if it’s food related as it means he won’t try anything she doesn’t like!

Pistyll Rhaeadr Waterfall – Wales

In April last year we spent a week in Wales with friends and I don’t think I ever really shared anything about it because I wanted a proper holiday from work and blogging.

Making a Capsule Wardrobe Work

Since summer ended I have been managing (just about) with a capsule wardrobe. I found it so much easier to think about and plan autumnal outfits and feel like 6 months is a decent amount of time to try and make it work – and it does I think!

Wanderlust: Italy

Italy has so much to offer as a holiday destination from the long Mediterranean coast line to the historic cities. I think I could happily plan a holiday a year there for the next five years! But for now here are the areas that are top of my list. The first is Venice purely because it is so unique.  The…
