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.

Our holiday requirements have changed a lot since having children. Long gone are the days of long haul flights and exotic destinations; we are now embracing all inclusive and child friendly places instead. Fuerteventura has been on our holiday wish list for a while, not just  for the great weather all year round but also for their white sandy beaches and super clear sea. After a lot of research we decided to stay at the H10 Tindaya which is part of the H10 Hotels group. The H10 Tindaya is in Costa Calma, in the Southern part of the island, about an hour / an hour and a half transfer from the airport.

There is only a few days til Mother’s Day, check my post here in case you are still looking for some last minute ideas. Mother’s Day doesn’t need to be all about presents, receiving presents is great and we all love it, but it can also be a great chance to treat your mum.

I have mentioned before my afternoon tea experiences, at the Sanderson and also at Moggerhanger HouseAfternoon tea is something I love so there is no surprise that my perfect Mother’s Day would be spent having tea and cake. Yes, I love receiving and opening gifts but I also love the idea of spending a relaxing day drinking tea or coffee and eating lots of cakes. There is something nice about sitting down at the table with friends and loved ones and having quality time together.

As a mum of very small children I never expect anything special for Mother’s Day. There is nothing better than a homemade card, a drawing or perhaps a bunch of flowers. However with Mother’s Day just around the corner I have put together a gift guide with few ideas for different styles, should you want to treat your mum a little bit.

I am not sure you, but it seems like the older I get the faster the time goes! I can´t believe 2016 is about to end as it seems like it was only yesterday we were saying goodbye to 2015.

2016 has been a great year for my blog. When I started it 18 months ago I wasn´t sure where it would take me or how long I´d keep it for.  The past 12 months have been truly amazing, I´ve had the chance to attend lovely events, like Homebase Christmas partySolan de Cabras launch in the UK , Mothers Meeting at the Outnet and  Estimation Nation Baking event with Smart Energy UK.

I´ve also had the chance to work with amazing companies, like Epson, The Co-op , Westfield  and Wayfair -to name a few. I am extremely grateful for the opportunities I´ve had and for the trust the brands have put in my blog.

These below have been my top 5 most popular posts of the year.  I have listed the links below in case you fancy reading in the new year.
