I was lucky enough to receive a mother’s day gift of a Buyagift bottomless champagne afternoon tea at the rather fancy and gorgeous setting of the 5* Grosvenor House on Park Lane in Mayfair. This wasn’t just any afternoon tea, it’s the Winner of a Highly Commended Award of Excellence at the Afternoon Tea Awards 2018!
The tea was for two and the voucher was worth £99, currently discounted from £110. The beautiful hotel was luxury from the moment the doormen welcomed us. With fabulous fittings and fixtures, the afternoon tea experience was great to follow a morning exploring the V&A and Hyde Park. Exuding luxury and a glamorous interior, it has been a popular venue to visit since its opening in 1929.
I have had a lot of afternoon teas, but this has to …

Are you ready for 26 March? It’s mother’s day and so here is my annual round up of gift ideas. Enjoy and happy mother’s day!
For the mother that loves a cuppa
So I am not about to suggest a box of Tetleys, but how about trying out Oteas gift boxes. A speciality tea company that is offering unique and unusual variety of flavours. All teas are expertly blended with high quality ingredients that are sourced from around the globe. Oteas has 400 different blends so there is plenty of fantastic teas to choose from. I thought the pretty packaging made them a perfect gift and they have gift boxes and gift sets to choose from. A 12 tea gift box is £4.95.
The gift boxes come in sets of 12 and 24 and can …

Part of Aldi’s Mother’s Day Specialbuys range which went into stores yesterday, they will be available while stocks last.
Not long till 6 March which is mother’s day this year. I love this day as I get a lie in, breakfast in bed, flowers, chocs and maybe a nice high tea somewhere, or a surprise gift. Here’s a round up of gift ideas and they are less than £20 each.
All because the lady loves Milk Tray
A classic that if you get dad to dress up in black can be delivered by your own Milk Tray Man. I am a massive Cadbury fan, from visiting the factory tour a number of times, to my fix of Dairy Milk, so frankly a box of Milk Tray has to top my list. The iconic box is bursting with tempting flavours, from the old classics of Hazelnut Swirl and Perfect …
I love my mum, she’s a little crazy but definitely makes me smile, and I hope that’s how my kids feel about me. So it’s that time of year to start thinking about nice things to get for your mum or the mother figure in your life. Here are some of my faves:
This neat modular handbag store comes complete with two different hanging hooks allowing for use inside the wardrobe or over a door and is the most effective handbag storage solution I’ve come across in many years. It’s from A Place for Everything (I bought a gorgeous shoe cabinet from them that still gets admiration a few years later), so they sell some nice stuff. The bag storage is £18.
Artificial flowers for £1
On March 30 2014 lots of lucky mums will be getting breakfast in bed, cards, hugs and gifts. I am both a mum and have a mum so have been looking around for some inspiration, as I always think, why stick to one gift when I can get a few to give to my mum.
Here are some of my top picks coming in at under £10. I’ll add more as I discover them. Happy Mother’s Day dear readers!
