Top 5 Highlights: Family Skiing in the Val di Fassa

It has been 5 years since our last visit to the beautiful Val di Fassa and things have changed a bit both in the valley and as a family (we are four now rather then three!). Here are my top 5 highlights from our most recent trip. Vajolet Ski School After a previous bad experience…

Family Bucket List Challenge

The AliKats Bucket List Challenge has inspired me to think about what I would put on my bucket list. We love being outside and traveling, having a young family makes the planning all the more important but it doesn’t stop us from getting out there! It might take us a few years to tick these…

Snowboarding in the SkiWelt

The girls trip is now an official annual fixture! In 2018 we headed to Western Italy and explored some of the local ski fields of the Piedmont region, in 2019 we spent a long weekend in St-Jean de Sixt, France. For 2020 we had the opportunity to try Austria and it’s largest connected ski area,…

A Family Adventure in Denmark

“Why Denmark?” Everyone asked when I told them what our summer holiday destination was! OK, so it was a bit of a random choice but I’ve always wanted to explore Scandinavia and Denmark seemed like a good place start – its always top of the charts when it comes to the “happiest places to live”…

Mini Adventure: Beryl’s Campsite

The summer holidays are finally here and we’ve survived the first year of school! Time for a much needed break from the routine and some fun adventures. Our first trip was three nights camping with the two boys and my Mum. We choose Beryl’s Campsite in the tiny village of Beeson on the South Devon…

Quantocks Ride

I don’t manage to get out on my mountain bike as much as I would like and opportunities to ride anything other then local trails are even rarer, so when I had a child free day on the same day that some friends were heading to the Quantocks I was there! It was an amazing…

Review: Wear Colour Women’s Ida Snow Jacket

The time had come – my well-worn Bonfire snowboarding jacket was starting to show its age (it had lasted the best part of eight winters) and so I needed to find myself a new one! I hate buying new clothes, especially expensive new clothes, so after much searching online, I was set on the Wear…

Snowboarding in La Clusaz & Le Grand Bornand

After last years girlie ski weekend we were all keen to make it an annual fixture on the calendar. This year we decided to head to St-Jean de Sixt and the ski areas of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand. So after almost a year in the planning, a last-minute accommodation cancellation and 10cm of…

Little Bear | Nursery Wall Art | Prints

Feeling the need to do something a bit more creative, I finally got round to putting a few sketches I’ve been working on into production! All feature a little bear and I’ve kept illustrations cute, clean and simple. From a superhero to a sleeping baby bear there is something for everyone. Little Superhero features bear…

Mini Adventure: Camping at Little Meadows

The early summer had shown such glorious promise that me and my Mum decided to risk it and take the boys camping for a couple of nights in late August. We chose North Devon as it is an easy two and a half hour drive from Bath with some lovely sandy beaches. We decided to…
