What do kids learn on holiday? #Wales4Kids Challenge

Hello lovelies :)

I came across a lovely blog post today on BritMums which is running a great #Wales4Kids campaign about how great it can be for kids and what children can learn on holiday. I really wanted to share my sons story on our recent summer holiday last year. You can find all the lovely details here and you could win a luxury family break in Wales to the value of £1,000 from the Rare Hideaways collection.

Visit HERE!

We had a lovely mini holiday last summer in Wales in Denbigshire and we learnt a lot about our little boy Jack growing up and becoming a little more independent and learning how to make friends and try new things.

this is Jack trying new things and learning he can do things if he tries. He was a little bit reluctant at first but came round in the end!!

This is Jack making friends! he was a bit reluctant to venture off from us but took him a while and then he wouldn't leave said he was having too much fun!! Hes not shy round people he knows it just takes him a while to warm up to new things

as you can see lots to see and do, perfect place for a fun filled family holiday :)

This post is an entry for the Visit Wales #Wales4Kids Family Holiday Challenge. Wales is the perfect place for a fun-filled family break.

it sounds fantastic!

This is my most romantic memory I have been with my lovely partner Craig for coming up to 13 years this year and its fair to say we are not the most romantic couple but we do do the little things which to me i guess are romantic!
We always hold hands and cuddle up and things but i guess thats something you do without thinking! but Hes always done little things like me eyeing up something nice on a trip out together like a pair of shoes then ill go a few days and forget about it and then he'll surprise me with the same shoes id been eyeing up so its something little but means a lot to me! but every girl loves a bit of romance and i am the kind who thinks romance comes in all shapes and sizes not just in the form of pretty flowers or a box of chocolates! (not that id say no to those either! ha!) He always buys me flowers for our anniversary or my birthday and things but has bought me surprise flowers many a time and that has always brought a smile to my face!

to be honest hes been bought chocolates in the past mint flavour ones which i cannot stand!

but my other half has a real passion for so wether that is romance or him thinking to himself ill buy them for her but she doesnt like them... more for me then! ha! who knows it the thought that counts! ha!

The most romantic thing my lovely other half Craig has done for me is plan a fantastic weekend to manchester for us both.

We have a 7 year old son so dont always get time away together but hed secretly booked A lovely hotel stay in Manchester Macdonald Hotel with a shopping trip to the Manchester markets just before christmas! some where id been saying id love to go but never got round to it - I had no idea id had a really crappy week and i came home from work and hed bought me the biggest bunch of flowers and one of them posh cupcakes with a rose on like this only i didnt take a picture was too busy stuffing in to my miserable face from my super crappy week! ha
he then ran me a lovely candle lit bath to help me relax (as he watched the football!! ha! think it was his way of saying give me some peace while the footballs on love! ha! )
he didnt actually tell me about the trip away until the morning of it! so after the initial excitement came a manic packing hour before we set off! then we couldnt get a baby sitter for our little boy so he ended up tagging along on our weekend away so became more a family trip than a romantic weekend away together dont get me wrong we still all had the best time! my son LOVED the hotel theyd made him up a bed with his own smellies and towels so he had to get a big bubble bath all to himself just to use them as he said they gone to all the effort it would be rude not too! ha only thing is hes now used to to 5 star hotels and thought hes Kevin from home alone 2 ordering room service! Its was great to spend time together just the 3 of us though the hotel was fantastic and food in the resturant was amazing so had a really fab time and hoping to book a trip together again soon and hopefully just the two of us this time! My sons not the biggest shopping fan as you can see from his face but still had a great time together over the weekend
just need to plan a little better for the next one to have a babysitter confirmed!!!

whats your most romantic memory :)

Spring & Summer Hair Trends

Hello lovelies!!

I came across a fantastic giveaway today for some fantastic goodies brought to you by The fab cool blades and a lovely fellow blogger Sarah from Life in a break down blog Visit Lifeinabreakdown Here!

Visit Coolblades Here!

This is the fantasic Goodies you can win!

For a chance to win you have to write about what you think will be big in Spring Summer 2014 Hair Looks!

This is what i think will be big for Hair this year!

Ive think this spring and summer season we will see a lot of Braids and Plaits! Similar to these lovely ones here! These are a simply and effortless look that can be worn at almost everything! so pretty and girly!

These are always big in summer for festivals but theyve started to be seen on runways and red carpets for a more grown up and dressed up look! Im a huge fan of them and think they are really pretty! can always add floweres to them to make them more summery with a pretty dress for hot summer days!

Then Ive chosen floral and flower hair accessories! hair accessories always become big in summer and these are my favourite! pretty floral headband and flowers! even a gorgeous Bow headband!!

then next is a look seen on the runway which i love! pretty floral hair clips! very hard look to pull off i think but so pretty i had to share!

Next ive seen a lot of leather detail hair accessories! i think these will be big this spring and summer too! love the stud headband!

and lastly i think beach waves will be big trend this summer! they are girly and pretty and easy to do!

These are my thoughts on spring and summer looks!

What are yours? do you have any favourites you'll be rushing to try when we finally see a bit of sun!
