Sports Day, Days Out and People Coming Together

Another week has ended and for many of you the school holidays have well and truly begun. Not so much the case in this household. The eldest actually finishes at 1pm today, yay for her. My other three and myself don't break up until Thursday and it feels like a life time away, we're all in desperate need of a break now.

July always seems to be a busy month. So many school trips, sports days and various other events to remember and of course then there is the preparation for the youngest's birthday at the end of the month. I seem to be constantly on the go and all I want is to sit down and have a hot cuppa, not too much to ask is it?

But despite my usual moaning I'm going to start with something I read this week that has put things into perspective for me.


Earlier in the week I read something so sad and I'm sure utterly devastating for some. A fellow blogger passed away on Monday leaving behind two sons and a lot of broken hearts. I never had the opportunity to meet the love Kate Sutton personally but I followed her on social media, joined in conversations with her and she always bought humour to any situation.

I just wanted to share a link to a Go Fund Me page which her eldest son set up in the hopes that some of my readers might take the time to donate something, anything to help. And if you knew her make sure you keep the tag #bemorewitwitwoo trending in her honour!

Hunkemoller make 'Herstory' With Limited Edition Influencer Swimwear Collection

At the beginning of the year I was lucky enough to have the chance to review part of one of Hunkemoller's limited edition collections and now their back with another brilliant collaborative collection and lucky me, I got the chance to see one of pieces up close and personal.

Hunkemoller’s have just launched their first ever swimwear collection which has been inspired by ambassadors and the collection is now available online. 

European retailer Hunkemoller have continued to build strong links with a great group of social media influencers with a new Ambassador inspired collection. This fantastic mini collection features four different monochrome swimwear styles which are real eye-catchers.

Hunkemöller ambassadors Lisa (@lisaanckarman), Nora (@allaboutnori) and Lynn (@whoisthatblonde) look beautiful in their very own limited edition swimwear collection. Lisa, Lynn and Nora are understandably extremely proud of this limited edition collection. 


Confetti & Confusion Book Tour

Earlier in the year I was able to join the book tour for Daisy James's novel Sunshine & Secrets and now she's back with the latest instalment to the Paradise Cookery School series, Confetti & Confusion and lucky old me, I'm also back to tell you more about the second book.


Stepping in for a celebrity chef, Millie Harper is feeling the pressure to make the first ever Paradise Cookery School classes are a dazzling success and ensure that bride-to-be Imogen and friends have an unforgettable experience.

Meanwhile, Millie is trying to play it cool around handsome estate manager Zach Barker. But whenever he is near Millie cannot fail to notice the chemistry between them – until someone from Zach’s past arrives and any potential romance seems out of the question.

When disaster strikes and the wedding is in jeopardy, Millie realises she may have to go above and beyond to make sure the school is a success. Can Millie manage to create a day that dreams are made of, and will she find a way to tell Zach how she feels?

My Sunday Photo 2018 #28

We have been very lucky this year when it comes to the amount of good weather we've had. I feel like we've actually had a Summer and that has meant the children have been able to get outdoors more often than not.

This is my favourite photo from the year so far. It just sums up this time of year for me, simple fun in the sun.
