We can’t wait to celebrate the start of the school holidays with a family friendly festival tucked away in Yorkshire. In its 9th year, Deer Shed hits the mark for family fun – from music, to theatre and adventures in the woodland, there’s no better place to start the summer season!

What we absolutely LOVE about this festival is that is it taking a very bold step of banning the sale of single-use plastic bottles and straws for 2018! BOOM! They are investing in better recycling infrastructure and pledging to become a completely single-use plastic free festival by 2021.

So what else can you expect from this festival, taking place in Topcliffe, North Yorkshire from 20th-22nd July? Music, theatre, science, arts and of course, adventures.

Now in its 7th year, The Big Feastival is a unique festival experience that blends top musicians with the best food you can think of, along with entertainment to keep the kids thoroughly entertained from morning to night.
Hosted on Alex James’ farm nestled in the Cotswolds, you won’t be disappointed with the music line up with Basement Jaxx, Craig David and Paloma Faith headlining the weekend.

Tonight I decided to try something new. A homemade face mask.

It’s crazy to think I’ve never tried this before.  I usually indulge in LUSH face masks, but in the absence of a shop bought product and a face in need of some TLC, I located a receipe that called for some everyday household items; natural yoghurt and honey.

So, here’s how it goes.

Whether you’re shopping for your own little bundle of joy, or you have a little one to buy for this year, we have three lovely brands you may want to consider.

Perfect for a baby shower or the arrival of a tiny tot, is a delightful British made bouquet of clothes from Born Gifted. The hand tied bouquet comes in three colours; pink, blue and white. Each is made up of 5 pairs of baby socks and two vests, wrapped delightfully with paper flowers and silk foliage. This will put a smile on any new mammy’s face!
