How keeping a passion outside the house and motherhood has helped me keep my sanity!

Life as a mum of 3

It’s fair to say being a stay at home mum to our 3 little ones for the last 2 years has been totally amazing and… challenging at the same time! You are there everyday for your little ones witnessing first hand their every day joys, disappointments, excitements and frustrations, you get to know them so well and the trust they give you back is the sweetest thing in the world. However, there is also another side to all this wonderful stay at home life Continue reading

My latest musical discoveries/Mes derniers coups de coeur musicaux

I have not shared a few of my latest musical finds and crushes for a long time. I know that typically my musical discoveries posts are not always the most popular ones on the blog but music is something I don’t think I could live without (I know this sounds pretty dramatic but…it is!).

Sometimes you need a few nice names to refresh and update those playlists of yours and this is where I come:)

My top 5 favourite soup recipes /Mes 5 recettes de soupe préférées

🇬🇧 In those winter months, soups are back on the menu. In our household we have made it a tradition to have a soup every Sunday evening. We try to have our meals with the kids at the weekend and I find a good soup on a Sunday evening is a great way to balance things out if we indulged a bit otherwise. Our kids get probably 2 soup diners a week which – I am not going to lie – is not always welcomed with a smile but when they have fish & chips at school or pizza, I feel it’s my duty to bring the vegetables back on their plates. Our toddler is a soup lover which is so great, may this long last!

Velouté de brocoli

I have tried lots of soup recipes (and will continue trying new ones on a regular basis) and today I thought I would share with you my 5 favourite ones. I could have probably made this list even longer as I am a big big fan of soups but I didn’t want to overwhelm anyone;)

🇫🇷 En ces mois d’hiver, il est temps de remettre les soupes au menu! Continue reading

10 family friendly places to enjoy in London

I initially wrote this blog post for a fellow blogger’s blog but I thought time had come for me to post on my own blog the updated version.

I love exploring, it probably comes from my own parents who were great at exposing us to a variety of places and taking us on various trips in France and abroad. Since moving to England more than 10 years ago I have done my fair share of exploring. Now, as a mum of 3 I am delighted to share with you my favourite family friends spots in London.

Tower Bridge

Wether you are a mum/dad, an auntie/uncle or a grandparent, I can guaranty you will find a nice place to visit in this list. They have all been tested and approved by myself and I’m picky;)
