Educational Play with Schleich I'm a big fan of learning through play. Unforced educational play. I'm not a teacher and I don't want to be. I want my children to naturally learn whilst they are having fun. When I was contacted recently...

A Luxury Weekend Away

This Mothers Day as well as a lovely gift and card from Little Man, I also received a beautiful gift from L’Occitane. A set of three luxurious hand creams from their range – a Rose scented one, a Cherry scented one, and a Shea Butter scented one. These were sent out from Millennium Hotels, who think its important to congratulate and thank Mums for all our hard work.

Travelling with children is rarely easy. Finding the right place to stay with just what you need in a safe location for little ones can often be a bit of a mission. We’re on holiday this week ourselves, staying at Meon Springs Yurtery – definitely Mummy friendly camping. When we go on holiday we generally stay in self catering accommodation, most commonly in cottages with plenty of space and sites which are safe for our little explorer to rampage around. Its also important for us to choose somewhere family friendly, where children are expected and welcomed, as opposed to frowned upon.

Before Little Man came along we’d still usually stay in cottages for our main holiday, but if we were travelling to visit friends around the country, enjoying a short weekend break away, or going into London for a night out or a show, we’d stay in a hotel. Our requirements were a lot different to what they are now. We wanted somewhere a bit fancy if possible, especially in London, and we wanted quality accommodation, good central locations, and good food and drink on site. If we ever get the opportunity for a romantic break away without Little Man again – sweet talking of Grandparents needed for that one – we’ll certainly be considering the Millennium Hotel in Knightsbridge.

Luxury accommodation in a perfect location is what you can expect from this hotel. Situated in the heart of the exclusive and fashionable Knightsbridge area of London you are ideally placed for shopping on Sloane Street, home of exquisite brands like Gucci, Chanel and Louis Vuitton. You are also close to Harrods and the Victoria & Albert Museum, as well as having the Royal Albert Hall within easy reach. Within the rooms you’ll find L’Occitane products to use. This brand is the perfect fit for this hotel, with both oozing decadence, opulence and luxury. I’ve never used L’Occitane before, but I was very impressed with the hand creams I was sent. Now I just need to convince my husband that a trip to Knightsbridge is in order to try some more!
