Seven Bees at St Georges Church – a child/work friendly cafe in Kemp town

I wrote this post for Brighton Mums when we were looking for a relaxed, child-friendly meeting and work space. Seven Bees at St Georges Church is a beautiful, light airy space offering great food, good coffee and a kids play area along with WiFi. We run a Parents Pow-wow there once a month (currently on a Thurday). It’s a very informal opportunity for freelance and self-employed parents (and their children) to meet. We need to work, but luckily our work is portable and can be done from anywhere with WiFi and good coffee.  For many small business owners and...

The Week That Was: Captured (#TWTWC). The one where we went to Butlins

We had a lovely weekend with the kids. Very child-focused. Took in a few shows. Swam (a lot). Ate junk. Rode the carousel! Very bonding and wonderful for all four of us. And much needed after this tough, long half-term. I also made a delicious pancetta, chickpea and all-the-veg-in-the-crisper dinner when we got home, so we’re all nutritioned-up for the rigours of the coming week!

Not a beauty blogger (but I do believe in thrift)

Any one who knows me, knows I’m no beauty blogger.  I wear makeup but rely on a very few bits. Even at my richest, I would very rarely treat myself to expensive, premium brands, as I could always find something better to spend the eye-popping pounds on! I’ve used the same liquid liner for near-on 30 years (Rimmel – short brush, very black, lasts forever, cleans off easily, doesn’t irritate). I’ve got ridiculously sensitive skin, and often find expensive brands, including natural products can irritate, so I’m not a big experimenter. However, I ran out of mascara, so thought I would try this one, which I bought from Tesco yesterday for £3! It’s really good, thick, but not clumpy and nicely, very black. Brilliant!
