Getting this in by the skin of my teeth this month. March has been one of those months!! I had my first taste of what it could be like if I went to press launches and meetings all the time (which alot of bloggers do, but I don’t because… I can’t!) but last Thursday my mother came up and I had a day of all days as I was preparing for the Sentebale campaign for Mothers Day. If you missed it – catch up here. It is being covered in Hello this week which is beyond exciting! (P 42)
It started with a quick visit to see one of my best friends new babies at C & W – he was gorgeous! Then I hop footed it My Baba for Mothercare event in Chelsea, then to ME+EM to try out some of their divine clothes for the post I am doing this week (watch this space…) and then tested the Mothers Day Champagne Tea at the Bulgari Hotel. Oh my days, I was exhausted!!!!
The new pages I have added my blog have been a great success. There is a continued need for personal recommendations. Notices in particular jobs (Angels & Urchins, The Good Web Guide and a decorating firm to name a few) and super duper nannies available, has had a lot of foot traffic so if you are in the running for any of these things, be sure to check out this section!
I have just added Parenting Workshops, Theatre and Clubs to the What’s On, so if you are looking for ways to amuse the kids or perhaps something for you, please take a look. I Have my eye on the Parenting Children in The Digital Age workshop and am excited that we have just booked tickets for Annie with Amanda Hart!!
Lastly, my Instagram seems to grow from strength to strength. I have recently been doing some competitions which are really popular, so if you would like to join forces and do a Sunday night Giveaway (especially women clothes and accessories), drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
As a spin off from my Instagram feed, I have put a link to buy everything you see on Instagram, over in the Shop section of the website. I hope this helps!
NEW ADDITIONS TO THE DIRECTORY
Role Models philosophy is to nurture character in children because they believe that ‘soft skills’ are as important as academic attainment. They focus on the individual strengths of every child and are deeply committed to supporting them through their formative years, whether that be through their Creative Childcare, Life Skills Courses or Special Needs Camps.
This Easter, they are offering a ‘Confidence & Resilience Course‘ for 8-12 year olds in Chelsea & Wimbledon.
I have also included Kings Tutors, a London based Private Tutoring company that come recommended by the Good Schools Guide.
Hart & Vine Home Finders are property finders focused on Sevenoaks & Tonbridge and the surrounding villages in Kent. They have excellent contacts in this area and use them to benefit their clients by finding off-market properties or un-earthing hidden gems that their clients just couldn’t have found without us.
They offer an affordable service negotiating to save their clients the success fee. Contact them for a no obligation consultation if that’s the area you are interested in!
Last but by no means least – I am having a sale at home on Wednesday 22nd. £5 entry for Sentebale and lots of great brands. Email me email@example.com if you would like to come along!
WORTH A MENTION
I dropped the 6 yr old off at a cooking class with ‘Cook with Rosie‘. Rosie runs cooking classes for youngsters and they are wonderful. I picked my son up to the cry of ‘I want to cook with Rosie every day!’ She runs the classes from her home in Battersea or at the Corner House in Brook Green. (which I am visiting tmw – it sounds fab!)
One of my favourite small brands for bedding, homeware and gifts is Poppy & Honesty. They have a new collection and it is a cove of Liberty print delight. The boys duvet cover with elephants on is awesome!
Myself and the youngest have enjoyed going Teddy’s Tune Time in Fulham Palace on Thursday mornings. Su is a lovely teacher! It is so calm & engaging and the children love it. She also offers tea and coffee at the end so there is a chance for your little onto play and explore whilst you connect with other mums. She also runs them in Wandsworth and Putney so if you are on the hunt for something to do with your little one, I highly recommend this (and they get given their own teddy!)
If you are wanting to keep the kids healthy, head over to the Nature Doc Shop. She sells every vitamin and supplement to keep the kids in shape including food storage solutions and personal care. So if your child has sensitive skin for example you will be able to find the right creams or shampoo to suit them. Genius!
Hope I haven’t exhausted you and you have found this helpful. Remember, I couldn’t do it without your recommendations and I wouldn’t do it if you didn’t read it (well actually, I would as I LOVE IT!)
Have a lovely week
