Five famous landmarks to visit


I don't know if it's the warmer weather but I have the travel bug and can't wait to travel abroad again! I mentioned my top five destinations in my travel bucket list. They included India, the Netherlands, Italy, USA and Japan and my reasons for wanting to visit each country. Since writing that post we travelled to Venice last summer. Now I just need to visit the other four, ha! I used to travel a lot but these days it's not as easy due to travel costs with a little one in tow and having to plan around school holidays when flight prices are at their highest. However, there are ways to travel for less as well as making any trip as relaxing as possible. As Pip grows he becomes more interested in the world and can already identify many of the world’s famous landmarks, despite only being four! Here are some of the destinations I’d love to take him to.

The Caidr Healthcare App


I’ve recently been reviewing the new Caidr App. Designed by Clinova, it’s a healthcare app that helps you assess your medical complaints. I worked in academic research and public health for over 10 years and am passionate about anything connected to health so I was keen to give to review the Caidr app. Although I’ve used many apps including those focusing on kids’ education and family communication this was the first health app I have used. The Caidr app has been developed by a team of healthcare professionals with the aim of helping those at home distinguish minor ailments from more serious illnesses that would require seeing a doctor or seeking hospital treatment.

Restaurant Review: Food for Friends, Brighton

Food for Friends in Brighton
Food for Friends in Brighton is one of the most famous vegetarian restaurants in the city. Despite living in Brighton for five years, I had yet to visit this award-winning restaurant until recently. I don’t eat meat (although do eat fish) and it’s very easy to find meat-free options in Brighton, with so many vegan and vegetarian eateries. Food for Friends serves high quality global vegetarian cuisine with vegan and gluten free options. I had heard great things about the restaurant and I was keen to experience it myself. Located on Prince Albert Street in the popular South Lanes area in the city centre, Food for Friends is easy to find. It’s a stone’s throw from the seafront and about a ten-minute walk from the station. The ethos of the Food for Friends restaurant is to serve fresh homemade and affordable food and to use local suppliers where possible. The menu oozes creatively with influences from around the world and changes frequently in relation to seasonal produce.

A lunch date with Arla





I was recently invited to attend an Arla Bloggers Lunch in Shoreditch, London. You may be familiar with the Arla brand especially when it comes to yogurt. This lunch was to celebrate the launch of Arla Fibre yogurts, now available in two sizes and four flavours, all of which contain 4.7g fibre in each 150g serving. I always enjoy travelling up to London from Brighton especially for blogger events like these and although I had details about the lunch I wasn’t sure what the schedule would entail. I was in for a treat!

5 things I’d do if I had a million pounds



Have you ever wondered what you’d do if you came into a large chunk of money? Have you imagined travelling around the world or buying your dream house? I’ve had discussions with family and friends on winning the lottery and what we’d do with a big amount of money. I don’t actually take part in the lottery and I’m not sure I’d like to be rich either. It often seems more trouble than it’s worth! And I’ve had some amazing experiences around the world with little money. However, occasionally it’s nice to dream. So, just for fun, here are 5 things I’d do if I had a million pounds!
