I like bright stuff, shiny stuff, words and photos. Likely to go weak at the knees over anything architecture, history or London related. Living in Maidenhead with my husband, 4 year old daughter and 9 month old son.

Maidenhead’s closest beach? West Wittering explored.

We’re pretty blessed living in Maidenhead as we have so many areas right on our doorstep and the south coast is tantalisingly close. I often hear people from Maidenhead rave about West Wittering beach so when we found ourselves staying nearby I thought we should check it out. Here’s everything you need to know: What is it? West Wittering beach is a beautiful stretch of...

Cuddles, tickles, laughs and giggles: the unexpected truth of a career in childcare.

Cuddles, tickles, laughs and giggles: the unexpected truth of a career in childcare.

Looking after little ones can be exhausting. Babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers, they each have their challenges. I work four days a week in an office, and when I leave at 5.30pm on Thursday for my ‘day off’ which involves looking after my toddler-sized little boy, I have to remind people that the hard work is just beginning. So when I try to imagine what it’s like...

Maidenhead Moments: Chinese New Year Parade

This post is the first in a new series here on the blog. I’ve noticed that when I share photos of an event I’ve been to in Maidenhead, I often get lots of questions or people wish that they had known about it beforehand. I figured that perhaps I can remedy this by sharing my #lovemaidenhead photography and writing about my experiences. So here is...

THRILLED with her new school uniform.

The highs and lows of becoming a first time school mum.

Having watched my Facebook feed fill up with images of my friend’s children starting school, I’ve never really been able to fully understand the range of emotions that lie behind the clichéd ‘stand in front of the fireplace’ photo that you see. As a first time school mum I’ve now realised that it isn’t just a photo. It’s a turning point, a moment of huge significance. Or...

Show why you #lovemaidenhead and win.

Way back at the beginning of the year I had a little idea. As I scrolled through my instagram feed I realised that there were very few photos of Maidenhead being shared. There were plenty of amazing photos of London… and even Windsor. But Maidenhead? Zilch. I appreciate that we don’t have as many iconic landmarks or famous places to visit. But as a community...

Family friendly live music: Concertini reviewed.

Family friendly live music: Concertini reviewed.

I was recently invited along to a classical music concert at Norden Farm. Not a traditional one though! This was a concert with a difference as it wasn’t a ‘sit-in-your-seats’ kind of concert but instead, one where children are encouraged to chill out, dance or even just colour in. Concertini is definitely something a little bit special and was a great way to spend my...

10 tips to rock your own Photo Walk

Last week I had the chance to join in with a Photo Walk in Shoreditch as part of the ‘Blogtacular’ blogging event. It’s an event that I’ve watched from the social media sidelines before and have always been keen to attend. It attracts bloggers and creatives from all over the world to be inspired, share ideas and make connections. I’ll write more about the event in...

300 reasons to #lovemaidenhead

As we have suddenly landed in June I thought it was high time that I published an update on the #lovemaidenhead photography project that I started back in January. What is #lovemaidenhead? In case you’ve not heard of the project, it’s a community based photo project that I have created to help Maidenhead get the recognition it deserves for being a great place to live. The idea...
