Local lifestyle blogger Ginger Mum talks about starring in a TV commercial, luxury shopping, spy-themed kids parties and more…
March is a month full of mothering gratitude, new hopes and expectations and the sprouting of new life in the garden. Can you tell I’m in desperate need of some vitamin D?
So, it’s been a busy time my end, have you seen the new Garnier Olia commercial on TV featuring yours truly alongside Fearne Cotton et al?
It was so very exciting to be asked to be part of it. My shade is Intense Copper 7.40 which is my most frequently asked question and it just enriches the colour that Mother Nature gave me.
I’ve also revelled at having a tiny bit more time at home so far this year instead of rushing into London every other day so recently I had time to spend the day in Bicester, historically one of my favourite luxury shopping days out.
They’ve had a huge extension since I last visited and it’s bigger and better than ever, which is saying something, so we spent a fabulous day there, shopping, lunching and generally having a fab time.
I did an affordable Mother’s Day edit – no naff novelty socks or flowers included – and you can read all about that on my blog.
I was surprised at the bargains available alongside the luxury pieces which cost the price of a month’s mortgage, especially in Kate Spade – it was bargain central!
Our youngest had another birthday – woohoo – he has been counting this one down since the day after his last one so I’m relieved to finally chalk it up.
There are so many options across Herts, Beds & Bucks for kids’ parties, we are SO lucky! This year, I said no way to any more house parties… I’ve done my stint!
Following in his brother’s footsteps as he partied there when this concept first launched, Dominic chose Si5 Spy Mission MK – it is a fab experience for the kids with food and spy-themed goody bags available – job done for busy parents at a really affordable price.
Local to us, they have branches in MK and Cambridge and we love their parties!
Remember you can keep up with my day to day goings on over on Instagram but until next month, ta ta for now! xxxx
