At the end of last year, I went to Bali with my family for one week. I wrote a full review of The Fairmont for travel site Mums Do Travel, so do check it out if you’re thinking of visiting. Here are some photos from […]
It’s been a while since I did a restaurant review but I felt The Great Chase was really worthy of a write-up. Not because it’s amazing but because it’s so different! The Great Chase is a charming, cosy restaurant in Islington High street. What makes […]
I’ve just had the most wonderful time in Karachi, Pakistan! I’ve got lots of relatives there which made my stay super fun and busy. I was there for a close family wedding and between all the wedding related stuff, all I did was shop and […]
A few months ago I (with the fam — husband and three kids) took a late summer holiday to the Italian city of Naples. City breaks can be tricky with young kids which is why we’ve tried to avoid them in the past! (Except for […]
This October half-term I got the opportunity to visit Kidtropolis with my crew ( an 11, 9 and 5-year-old) and then write about it. If you haven’t been you’ll be wondering what an earth is Kidtropolis? Don’t worry I didn’t know anything about it either! Here’s the breakdown:
Despite the never-ending flight time Bali is somewhere that is definitely worth visiting at least once in your life. Being part of the largest Muslim populated country in the world — Indonesia, Muslim travellers are welcomed in Bali. Here is a round-up of the best things […]

On Easter weekend MLS 2017 took place at Olympia in Kensington. It was another well organised event with thousands attending. I went on Easter Sunday and it was really packed. We rushed in as we had tickets to see Jungly Jaadogar 2 at 12pm. There was […]
As a birthday present for my husband I decided to take the whole family (five of us) for indoor skydiving at iFly. Not knowing what to expect we arrived in Basingstoke a bit late and almost missed our ‘flight’. Tip 1: You should get there […]
A few friends had been mentioning escape rooms to me recently but I just thought ‘Pahhh sounds weird’. However after doing a bit of research I realised this could be quite a fun activity! So I booked a game at HintHunt for myself and two of my […]
In January I attended my first ever supper club! Someone asked me the other day, “What is a supper club?” I replied, “It’s a dinner party where you don’t necessarily know the host or anybody there, serves really good exclusive food and you pay for the privilege.” […]
Going for breakfast is becoming one of my favourite things to do much to the detriment of my waistline. However if you’re going out for breakfast you may as well make it special. Sistered with The Ivy, the Ivy Cafe Wimbledon describes itself as a modern […]
