5 fun things to see & do in London

London is an amazing City. I, myself have had the pleasure to visit a few times both solo and with two of my children. We have seen sights such as Westminster Abbey, London Bridge, Carnaby Street, the National History Museum and so much more. London has so many amazing attractions and ‘must-see’ places, you can even get cheap flights to travel there! So I thought I would share with you a few of my favourite places, I have been lucky enough to visit myself and ones I hope to visit soon.  When you think of London, what do you immediately think…

The pretty umbrellas of West Street

Social media can be a wonderful place. As I scrolled through my Facebook feed, over my morning cup of tea – like we all do I’m sure. I caught wind of a new addition to an old street which just so happened to be in one of my favourite towns, Carrickfergus.  West Street, if I’m honest, isn’t a street we have went down during our many visits to Carrick – and we’re there a lot! We always get off our train and head straight down through the North Gate, towards the castle. We spend our days at the amazing Pirate Marina…

Bluebell the Horse Trunki – Ride On suitcase | Review {& giveaway!}

When Annabelle was little, we had the pleasure of working with Trunki on a toddlepak and a paddlepak review. So, we are fans of the Trunki range. However, we have never owned a Trunki ride-on suitcase. So when they got back in touch, offering Annabelle a Trunki of her choice to review, we were very excited.  If you have ever seen the Trunki ride-on suitcase range for yourself, you’ll know there is a wide and very fun range to choose from. And as soon as Annabelle clocked eyes on Bluebell the Horse Trunki, it was love at first sight. With…

5 reasons to visit Jamaica

I am pretty sure there are more than five reasons to visit Jamaica, but I think you’ll only need five. My first thought when I think of Jamaica is the bobsled team in Cool Runnings – just me? It’s one of my favourite movies and the characters are so fun & laid-back that they emanate everything Jamaica stands for. Which is beauty,  pride and reggae music!  Jamaica is an island in the middle of the Carribean seas and it’s one of those places that I personally, can only dream of visiting. It is an island where you can immerse yourself…

Looking forward to rediscovering me {in Cyprus!}

In May of this year, I will be jetting off to Cyprus with some friends & we’re not taking our kids. I cannot tell you how excited this trip makes me because I have declared it to be a week where I find myself again. Being a Mum and a wife are amazing, don’t get me wrong – but always tending to others can get tiresome.  Over the years I have managed to lose a lot of myself. A lot of who I used to be. I wasn’t always a stressed headed angry dragon {as the kids call me!}. I used…

An evening at the Lost City Adventure Golf in Belfast

Mini golf is something I remember playing loads when I was a child. I was never any good at it, but it was fun to play nevertheless. At Cityside {Yorkgate} in Belfast, we have a new adventure golf centre open called The Lost City Adventure Golf. When we saw it just before Christmas {when it was still under construction} we were excited for it to open because it looked amazing – and that was just from the outside! We had a little peek inside and we could not wait for it to be open!  Just last week, we attended their…

We’ve booked our 2018 Summer holiday! {Roll on July!}

I could not be more excited because I’ve just booked our 2018 Summer holiday! When we asked the kids where they would like to go on their next holiday it was a unanimous decision as they all yelled “SOMERSET” in unison. We had such an amazing time at the Haven resort in Burnham-on-Sea in Somerset in 2016 that I’d be lying if I wasn’t as equally as excited as the smalls to be going back too.   We cannot wait to revisit some of the places we travelled too and made such amazing memories at; such as the Animal Adventure Play…
