Parent Escape: Purobeach Illetas, Mallorca

Last week Ross and I were invited on a well needed ‘Parent Escape’ to the stunning Purobeach Illetas located just outside of Palma in Mallorca. I must admit my beach club skills are a little rusty – the last time I went to one was in Ibiza…pre-children…say no more. I’d been told, however, that Purobeach Illetas has quite a different vibe to the ones I’ve frequented on the White Isle, more

An Architect Designed Holiday House In London – Kid & Coe

A couple of months ago we had a staycation in London staying at one of Kid & Coe‘s gorgeous family properties – The Ockenden Residence in Islington. This is one of those houses that you see in films about London and think that everyone lives in (when in fact most of us live in tiny two bedroom Victorian terraces). It was lovely to experience such a gorgeous family space and

The Babymoon: Hotel Cort, Palma

If you are reading this and thinking about taking a little break before your baby is born (a babymoon) – do it! We have just come back from a blissful adult only week of doing all the things we love to do when kids are not around. Staying in a gorgeous boutique hotel, eating long lunches and late dinners, sleeping in and wandering out when we wish. The week truly

Boutique Apartment Living In Vinohrady, Prague

I didn’t know much about Prague before visiting. Normally I have a vague idea of whereabouts I’d like to stay in a city – in Paris South Pigalle in Singapore Ann Siang Hill but in Prague I had no clue. So when we ended up in Vinohrady I was pleasantly surprised – perfectly situated just outside of the main town, in a local and quite sophisticated neighbourhood complete with a

The Cool Kids Guide To Prague

We were only in Prague for three days so this is by no means a definitive guide but as always I like to include cool places I’ve tried that will appeal to both kids and parents. City breaks with small kids can be tiring so I suggest doing one thing a day and leaving time to recharge in a lovely city style abode. Here are a few things that we

A Winter Beach House – Crantock Beach, Cornwall

Our winter beach escape to Cornwall could not have come at a better time for me and Rex. Full of coughs and colds we were in definite need of some good blustery beach walks and Cornish air to clear out our lungs. It is the dream to stay in a beautiful family beach house overlooking the sea and this is what Cornish Gems do best. We spent our weekend at

A Family Friendly Hotel In Galle, Sri Lanka: Fort Bazaar

Sri Lanka is a huge country to explore, especially if you have young kids in tow. If you are planning a trip you need to be strategic in planning where you want to go in order to combine variety with breaking up long car journeys. Galle is the fort city and a Unesco World Heritage Site on the south west coast and a definite place to stop in my book.

A Stylish Farmhouse Stay In South East Mallorca

I have featured Mallorca a lot on my blog because we go there every year for two months with Ross’s work. At the end of his stint we take a week out to have a holiday together as a family. There are some gorgeous Airbnbs in Mallorca and I personally find it more relaxing to be in accommodation where we can do our own thing. This time we stayed in a

Nope, neither did I but what a perfect excuse to indulge in one of the coolest afternoon teas in London – the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Afternoon Tea at the gorgeous One Aldwych Hotel. I think you either love or hate afternoon tea

Dim Sum Treats & River Views: Royal China London

I’ve always been proud of my Chinese heritage and spent most of my years growing up around the delicious street food of Singapore. Now I have my son, who is a quarter chinese, I’m keen to keep our heritage alive and show him all the cool things Chinese culture has to offer. Eating is a big part of asian living and so when Royal China invited us to go and eat some
