Where the blog am I?

If you took a look at my current tri-planning system, calculating income streams for the next quarter, you'd have a proper giggle (perhaps).  (Tri-planning because I can't be the only one who uses a smartphone, a paper diary and random online documents to organise her life by). 

Dear Readers, I have not abandoned you, or style, or the world of blogging (ye Gods, no!), rather I've whooshed from publishing my first book, to upskilling my marketing skills, and landed smack bang in the middle of Book 2 AND the middle of September. 

Before we know it the Boots Christmas Gift Guide will be upon us and the queues will circumnavigate The Trafford Centre.

So, in the manner of a store temporarily altering the window display, I've my head stuck in my book for a few weeks, and then I'll be back, directing my lovely readers to all manner of retail, style, parenting and just flipping well gorgeous delights.

I especially have my eye on posting a Per Una review, once I've recovered from the shock that they actually have some fabulous dresses that suit my clean-lines-only fuctionality (take a peek next time you're in M&S to see what I'm on about). 

So, why not bare with me; how's your early Autumn treating you?  Are you inundated with blackberries and leaves as your children wonder at the change in seasons? Or are you panicking about where to hold your office Christmas shindig?  Answers in the comments box, merci.

From Ashford to Plymouth (and Cornwall) in a fortnight

So, Easter: how did you spend yours? 

I've just looked back over my recent photos and I think I know why this Pinot and Cadbury's egg is going down so well....we've packed in a fair bit over the last fourteen days.

Our adventures began in Ashford, Kent, via an overnight with friends in Chippenham - where I managed to leave my purse and my daughter's Kindle behind!  Time to pop on some sunnies and kick off your shoes: 




Thankfully we were staying with friends in Ashford, so we shared our budget for the five days of fun. 

First stop was Folkestone beach.  


Chicago: 48 Hours in the Magnificent Midwest

I first discovered Chicago in 2013, and have been fortunate enough to return several times since, usually for 24 or 48 hours, so I highly recommended this HIIT city destination. 

I also managed to fit in a 12 hour shopping trip layover when I visited Belize in April 2016.

A serial East Coast traveller (remember when everyone travelled to New York for a weekend break?) a work opportunity arose that saw me book a flight to Chicago for onward travel to a little student town called Champaign; four-hour return Amtrak trip, and well worth a visit for a true taste of America (they even have a freakin’ Dairy Queen).
Flights Flights are around 9 hours direct from the UK, and, depending how organised you are, range from £500-£800 for economy return.  
Hotels For reasons I’m about to go into, I enjoy staying at Hilton O’Hare (the only airport hotel; handy for layovers) or the Hilton Rosemont (one MTR stop from O’Hare and an entertainment haven).  City-centre hotels are very competitively priced, sta…
