Overnight Oats – unless you’ve been living under a rock these past few months you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. They’re the latest breakfast craze that’s taken over many peoples lives, including my own. They’ve actually been around for a quite a while now but they’ve suddenly soared in popularity and anyone who’s anyone is giving them a try.
Originating in America, cake smash photoshoots have been taking the UK by storm as parents look for a fun and memorable way to mark their child’s first birthday. The craze involves letting your one year old loose with a giant cake while being pictured by a photographer, creating some cheeky, adorable and messy shots that you can treasure forever.

Set in the heart of the Essex countryside, surrounded by an impressive 1.5 acres of land, Galvin Green Man is situated in one of the oldest pubs in Essex, having originally been built in 1314.

Piccolo are a brand I’ve always fallen back on. Their organic ingredients and bold flavours keep them one step ahead of their competitors, which is no mean feat in the saturated baby food market. So when the team at Piccolo contacted me and asked if Max would like to put their Mediterranean range through it’s paces I just couldn’t say no.
This morning we did something that I’ve put off for the past year – we braved our first ever local baby class. Until now I’ve avoided such classes like the plague. Visions in my head of them being full of cliquey mum’s.
If your home is relatively small, you might find yourself wondering how you might make good use of the space. It can often be frustrating, especially when you want to renovate or make some kind of change to your home, but don’t feel entirely able to. But there are always ways of getting around a lack of space.
At bedtime, the activities you do with your child should be done with getting them to sleep in mind. Most parents will tell their child stories or sing to them to help them get to sleep. In a lot of cases, this sort of activity will be perfect and it gives you a chance to spend some quality time with your child.
Our home for the weekend was the 4* Hotel Beau Rivage in Weggis, a small, idyllic holiday resort. The hotel is perfectly located right on the shore of the beautiful Lake Lucerne and if I could sum it up in a few words it would be “a cute hotel with a rustic charm”.
