One of the perks of being a blogger is that sometimes you get invited to press days and events. The press days are a great opportunity to get a sneak peek at what the brands have in store for the following season. So on one of the hottest days days of the year I popped over to probably one of the most amazing houses in central London – One Horse Guards, to have a look at what Neptune has to offer for Autumn / Winter.

I am quite short, so finding the right length trousers or maxi dresses is always a challenge. Things like jumpsuits are usually out of the question for the same reason unless they are from a petite range, and let’s face it, petite ranges out there are not great, are they? Fear not, from time to time I find something that fits, something that I wouldn’t usually even give a second look in the shops but it actually looks really good on, like this jumpsuit from Monsoon. When I first spotted it I thought I’d try it on as it didn’t look too long. And to my surprise it fits just right, sitting above my ankle as it’s three quarter length.

I love Pizza Express. Fact. It’s one of our favourite restaurants to go to as a family and even my super fussy eater son loves their dough balls, but who doesn’t?

A couple of weeks ago I was invited alongside a few other bloggers to visit their newly refurbished High Holborn restaurant for a pizza party. A couple of glasses of prosecco and some nibbles and we were all ready to give pizza making a go.

I’m always keen to support Spanish brands and entrepreneurs. In the past I have brought you some of my favourite Spanish children clothes brands, here and here. More recently I introduced you to La Zebra, a small business by a Spanish mum living in the UK.

Pepa & Co is one of those brands that have been on my radar of a couple of years. I initially came across them online and I was drawn to their super cute range for kids with a very Spanish style. Very different to the clothes you can find in the UK. Lately Pepa & Co have had a lot of press coverage thanks to the young royals wearing their clothes and more recently for creating the pageboys and flower girls outfits for Pippa Middleton’s wedding.

I’ve had a chance to interview Pepa Gonzalez recently to find out a bit more about her brand.

Did you know that this week is National Picnic Week? And it couldn’t have been a better week for picnics, with the temperatures reaching  the 30’s and the sun shining.

With the weather being super hot we have been coming home in the evenings and enjoying a splash in the paddling pool – me included- and a bit of a picnic in the garden. Our routine has been out of the window, but hey, the sun doesn’t shine in London very often so we’ve been making the most of it.
