‘Eventcrashers’ aka Good Sh*t Happens

It’s no secret amongst our closest friends that my sisters and I have always managed to find ourselves rubbing shoulders with celebs and VIPs. An after-party in Tape, London or enjoying a VIP table in Ibiza. We’ve been there and we’ve done it, usually a combination of timing, luck and connections, but now it’s time to pass the baton. At 4 and 3, W and … Continue reading ‘Eventcrashers’ aka Good Sh*t Happens

Event Edit: Big Fish Little Fish Hackney – Drum n Bass

The concept of a family-friendly rave has intrigued me for quite a while, the Little Londoners were ecstatic at the idea of ‘going out’ with me rather than the usual, yet rare, babysitter (read: abandonment) scenario. That’s where Big Fish Little Fish come in, their events promise top DJs and licensed bars for the ‘Big Fish’, as well as craft areas, play areas and face-painting … Continue reading Event Edit: Big Fish Little Fish Hackney – Drum n Bass

The Little Londoners, The Mondrian and The Lorax

The Mondrian is one of my favourite hotels to stay at when I need a sneaky treat or two. So I jumped at the chance to take advantage of their dinner, bed, breakfast and tickets to see The Lorax offer!  Anybody knows me that I’m not happy unless I’m spinning as many as (too full) plates as possible, so of course I decided to turn … Continue reading The Little Londoners, The Mondrian and The Lorax

London Underground 

I recently shared a photograph of my children on the tube after a unpleasant experience which prompted me to ask the question “Was I wrong to ask for a seat for my children?”. I received a mix of responses, a few inferring neglectful parenting and assuming that I am somebody with an attitude problem raising self entitled, disrespectful children, too occupied with my own ‘first … Continue reading London Underground 

Foodie Friday: Rabot 1745

Chocolate lovers rejoice! Rabot 1745 has been on my radar for a number of years now, but I have never had the chance to sample the delights they have on offer. If you’re not familiar with Rabot 1745, it’s Hotel Chocolat’s restaurant that serves cacao-inspired cuisine in the midst of London’s Borough Market. In other words, a chocolate lovers’ dream. They do not have a … Continue reading Foodie Friday: Rabot 1745

The Attack in London

We were in Borough Market a few hours before the attack, I decided it was time to have a conversation with the Little Londoners (W, 4 and B, 2) and I have written about the approach I took.

“I am grateful that I could shift the focus from the bad to the good. To persevere their innocence and the magic of London as seen through a child’s eye…”

The Bucket List: Museum Challenge

As we continue to make our way through the list, we came to ‘The Museum Challenge’. Living in London we are fortunate enough to have three, free museums all within walking distance of each other, on our doorstep. Our challenge was to visit all three in one day! First up was the Science Museum, we arrived before doors opened at 10am after a quick visit … Continue reading The Bucket List: Museum Challenge

The Bucket List: Robot Zoo

As we work our way through the bucket list, I realised that W had requested a museum outing. We visit museums on a regular basis, with the Science Museum and Natural History Museum being firm and regular favourites. I wanted this museum visit to be a little different from the norm, remembering my own visits to The Horniman Museum as a child, I thought I would … Continue reading The Bucket List: Robot Zoo

KidZania – every child’s dream

We went, we had fun and we’ll be going back! W turned the big 4 and I decided a trip to KidZania was in order to celebrate. We went early to avoid the crowds, large groups of school children started arrive in  the afternoon which made it a bit more difficult to participate in activities. Arrival was an airport set up complete with boarding passes … Continue reading KidZania – every child’s dream
