You know sometimes you just need to read a light hearted book to bring a smile to your face. Well Laura Lake and the Hipster Weddings by Wendy Holden is just that. Witty, fun and down right full of entertainment!

I was lucky enough to be sent a beautiful hardback copy to read and review from Head of Zeus, plus you have the chance to win your very own copy as well. First though, here is a little bit about Laura Lake and the Hipster Weddings.

Laura Lake and the Hipster Weddings by Wendy Holden

Book Description

She’ll need a triple-barrelled name for the castle one. She’ll need a gallon of glitter for the woodland one. She’ll need a lobster-shaped hat for the Shoreditch one.

Laura Lake longs to be a journalist. Instead she’s an unpaid intern at a glossy magazine – sleeping in the fashion cupboard and living on canapés. But she’s just got her first big break: infiltrate three society weddings and write a juicy exposé.

Security will be tighter than a bodycon dress, but how hard can it be? Cue disappearing brides, demanding socialites – and a jealous office enemy who will do anything to bring her down…

Now baby girl is a toddler, yes she is walking, falling, toddling about, I thought it was about time I looked into travel tips for toddlers. These can be tips for travelling an hour to see family and friends, or even travelling abroad on holiday.

Last year we travelled up country – from Cornwall to Derbyshire to see family. It was pretty hard going with an exclusively breast-fed 5 month old but we did it. So is it easier travelling with a toddler?

Hopefully it will be if you bear in mind my essential top tips for travelling with toddlers.

Now that spring has arrived, we need to ensure our home reflects this. After all, springtime is all about blossoming flowers and longer days,  it’s also one of the best times for your kids as they get to play outdoors. But while there are lots of updates you can do to your garden at this time of the year, you can also do some spring time changes to the inside of your home. One thing you should do is attempt to bring the outdoors inside. A sprinkle of the outdoors can give your home a fab feel.

Here are some ways you can bring the outdoors inside this spring.

Add some outdoor scents to your house

You might think candles are just for winter time. After all, there’s nothing better than cuddling up in front of a cozy fire with some great candles in winter. But actually, candles are a great house accessory for spring too. In fact, it’s an excellent way to bring a touch of outdoor magic to the inside of your home. After all, you can go for outdoor smells such as lavender or honeysuckle which will make you feel like you are in your garden. In fact, if you add one of these candles by the front door, it will give an instant fresh feel as guests enter your home. Therefore, hunt down some great candles which you can add to your home.
