My Perfect Family Holiday | #MarkWarnerMum

    Unless you live under a rock (and if you do, it’s your choice, I’m not judging) … you will have heard that it’s that time of year where Mark Warner Holidays launch their Ambassador programme.   I’ve applied before and unfortunately wasn’t successful. But, being the magnanimous person that I am, I haven’t […]

Long Tall Sally | GIVEAWAY

    Last week, I wrote about Long Tall Sally (the women’s fashion retailer for the tall women amongst us), and I described my Christmas Wishlist. I’m just waiting for a few more items to arrive in the post from the LTS team and I will do a little fashion blog post showing off the […]

James Villa Holidays | COMPETITION

    I was recently asked by James Villa Holidays if I would like to write about my love of books and travel.  Bearing in mind they are the two things I love the most in this world (other than the boys, obv), I jumped at the chance.  It was a good opportunity to daydream a […]

Pink Lining Halloween Competition

Win Tickets to Cadbury World

      You may have seen that Cadbury have recently launched a new chocolately product – Dairy Milk Pebbles.  De-licious!   Now in the art of research (and because Cadburys kindly sent me some,) I have tested these out for you. Two whole bags.  Because I’m kind like that.  They’re like flatter mini-eggs – […]

Solve a dating dilemma and win £400 of Virgin experience vouchers

You may be aware that I’m partial to the odd date or two – very odd in some cases, and so when I was asked to share the details of a competition that eHarmony are currently running, I couldn’t refuse.  Well, I could, but didn’t.   Now I don’t like to call myself a dating […]
