My Family Holiday Fashion Essentials

In just under three months time we will be heading off on our family summer holiday. With the house renovations taking place last year we didn’t manage to get away (apart from a couple of child free nights in Barcelona) and that makes me even more excited for some family time in the sun.

Top Tips To Keep Kids Safe In The Sun

As a mother to two very pale skinned, blond hair, blue eyed boys I worry once the sun comes out.  I love being in the sun and the boys love playing outside but they burn easily and making sure they are safe in the sun is my top priority. Here are my top tips for keeping kids safe in the sun. In the words of Baz Luhman Wear Sunscreen – my boys are always covered in it.  They are so used to being slathered in sun cream that there isn’t even the hint of a moan when it’s time to…
