The Power of Flowers


Do you like getting flowers? I honestly think that any woman in the world loves receiving flowers, don’t you think? I have to admit that I used to get many more before I got married, and had children, but maybe that’s why I find it even more special when a bouquet from daddy arrives by a special delivery. I love flowers so much that I buy a bouquet every week for myself as a little treat!

There is something magical about flowers, the smell, the look, the fact they are here as a message to say something. It’s so easy to say I love you with flowers, or even to say sorry, or just to remind someone special you are thinking of them.

I love roses and orchids, but also sunflowers, lilies, sword lilies and irises. I will never forget the gorgeous red roses bouquet I received for our wedding, and red roses definitely represent love for me. What are you favourite flowers?

I enjoyed watching the video above as it reminded me how flowers can also open eyes to many people. The world isn’t that bad, you just have to see it!

Me & my Girls at the Coronation Party of #KingJulien at Mahiki #StreamTeam

mahiki

Last Sunday me and my girls partied a big style!

We were invited to a VIP screening of the new Netflix original series ‘All Hail King Julien’ starring everyone’s favourite characters from DreamWorks ‘Madagascar’.

photo (7)The screening took place at the fabulous Mahiki bar famous for spotting many celebrities, and included fun, games, dancing and a screening alongside a few celebrity guests including the lovely Pixie Lott herself (who was actually sitting at the table next to us).

There were cocktails for the mums and mocktails for the kids. My two loved the pineapple cocktails, just look at them!

There was loads of very cool dancing, and especially Isabelle was very keen to get the moves right, while her sister absolutely loved playing in the giant beanbags and having her face painted too!

Isabelle was very keen to have a picture taken with the fabulous King Julien, not like her toddler sister Olivia, who was very grumpy!

Thank you Netflix for inviting us for one for the best events I have ever been to, and cannot wait for the next one! Next time we really need to take daddy who was not able to come as away on a business trip to Colorado. What a shame!

And just so you know, we loved the new episodes! They will be on Netflix from 19th December! Go and watch them!

Peppa Pig is 10 Years Old! #Peppa10

Olivia
Would you believe that the tiny Peppa Pig has been making our children happy for 10 years already? Wow. Isabelle is almost 8 years old, and she used to be obsessed with Peppa Pig, and our little Olivia is exactly the same.

If it was up to her everything would be about her favourite little piggy friend. Last summer we went to the Peppa Pig world and both girls had loads of fun. Olivia was wearing her favourite t-shirt with Peppa, and just could not get over seeing her absolutely everywhere around!

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Peppa Pig we have been sent an amazing Peppa Pig bundle full of amazing gifts. As it’s going to be Xmas soon, I am leaving these for my little Olivia to find under our Xmas tree and in her stocking. I am absolutely sure that they will make her very happy, and can imagine she will be spending loads of fun playing with all the below.
