LONDON MUMMA

With the finishing line in sight to the summer holidays, and bodies already projected to the open road and sandy beaches with crystal clear blue seas there are a few things you need to put in check and inspect, especially your car before a road trip prior to you setting out for some fun in the sun.

This week set to be the busiest on the roads and as we pack up the car with luggage, kids, pets and everything minus the kitchen sink you are going to need to make sure you check and replace those tyres regularly, unless you’re planning to have the kids pick up the car and strap it to their backs. Always check the tyres for wear and uneven tread and making sure the alignment is right, plus  make sure you have a spare tyre just in case, failure to do so would be negligent and could result in accidents.

A major no brainer really is to have your brake pads tested too, god forbid you find yourself in a situation where you had to use them abruptly to avoid a collision, get these checked regularly, especially before a road trip to protect you and your family and others around you, if not, it could lead to a fatal accident.

The car is going to be packed, kids are on their tablets playing games, watching movies, you've got the radio on, and it’s going to be a long hot drive in this heat. I certainly recommend stopping off and service your car air conditioning from Ossett Tyre House to get you air conditioning checked out to keep you and the family cool, as improper air conditioning could lead to serious car heat ups.

Refreshments, are always a good idea to and have some treats packed and plenty of water too, you can always make ahead my strawberry sparkling soda and bottle up for the ride to keep you and the kids extra cool.

Family, car and road safety is extremely important, failure to have the above checked, replaced and looked into could lead to serious consequences, such as car breakdowns leaving your family stranded before your holiday has even begun, to more serious results.

Are you hitting the road for your holidays? How will you be preparing? I would love to read your comments below....

I can't lie I adore, no I love popcorn! Leanora too and when we were asked to make and bring in a treat for sports day we knew we just had to make white chocolate funfetti popcorn.

We are believers that popcorn solves everything, all you require is the finest ingredients to help bring it to life. 

Whilst Friday and Saturday night is movie night, we always watch either Moana or Madagascar with a bowl filled with our favourite weekend treat, heck have it any day if the week if you fancy it, it never lasts and we find ourselves making a few batches of this moorish treat.


Leanora believes more sprinkles the better and I think she is right, funfetti is a real treat it's almost magical and bring so much fun to a snack.

Honestly, I never knew how quick it was to make popcorn, even quicker thanks to Exclusively Housewares recent event where I was gifted the SmArt popcorn machine. Gone are the days of microwave popcorn bags or waiting for it to pop in a hot pan, like a bunch of eager beavers.

Two large bars of white chocolate, one for me, the other for the popcorn, funfetti sprinkles, some trusty corn kernels and let the magic begin to make these fluffy white chocolate funfetti popcorn.

Honestly, this popcorn lasts no time in my house or at sports day, the kids will love you for it and the grown ups too, this is the perfect thing to bring to any occasion be it BBQ, pool party or family and friend get together.


Ingredients 
10 cups of corn kernels
200g of white chocolate
4 tablespoons of sprinkles

Directions
1. If you do not have a popcorn maker, grab a microwaveable bag and zap as per its instructions. Once the popcorn is ready, pick out any kernels that have not manage to pop and place to one side.

2. Brake up your white chocolate and place into a microwaveable bowl and every 30 seconds, stop give it a stir until completely melted, then pour over you popcorn add your sprinkles and toss with a clean spoon, making sure that each popcorn is evenly covered.

3. Pour out your coated popcorn on to parchment paper and leave to dry for 20 minutes and enjoy!

Have a popping good day! x

With the temperatures starting to soar, I find myself eating a lot less hot foods, who wants to eat a pie or lasagne for lunch, we are looking for something lighter, fresher and healthy too, so if you are looking for a great little lunch spot, be it if you are vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian or chicken lover like myself Abokado have a new range of vitality salads to see you through the summer. 

So all you Londonites you are in luck, with 23 restaurants dotted around London you will never be too far from Abokado and I have to say, they serve some of the best food in London Town


 Abokado have a huge new salad and drinks menu to work your way through, so no more unhealthy lunches opt for something new, healthy and light this summer. 

Light, fresh, exceptional salads are on offer, there will be something to tickle everyone's taste buds.

Chicken, avocado, pomegranate, raw rainbow slaw mix, quinoa, lentils & rocket a healthy but hearty dish is what I went for.



Aliesha tucked into the fragrant warm spiced, Turmeric cauliflower, feta, pomegranate, mixed seeds & nuts, kale & root vegetables before I even had a chance to look up and taste she had wolfed the lot down. 



Sushi grade tuna & salmon, mango, sesame seaweed, pickled cabbage, coriander, chilli, lime, cucumber, spinach, courgette & carrots, poke bowl which we doused in the best soy and hot sauce not that it needed it, naked works perfectly fine too.

They also have an array of fresh juices to wash down the salads all made fresh daily, my favourite has to be Rise n Shine, consisting of Apple, Mint, Lemon truly refreshing and delicious.


We waddled back to the office like little piggies, stuffed nicely with our healthy lunch and thinking about what we are going to have for our healthy lunch tomorrow. 

Honestly, I love this place, I can not sing its praises enough and I am so glad that husband and wife Mark and Lindsey brought back their healthy eating and food adventure back from Oz in 2004 and set up Abokado. 

Trust me this is just veganning of your love of Abokado.

One of my current staples that I am buying in all styles is a dress, nothing better than wearing a dress to beat the heat.


London's temperatures are soaring and happy to say that there doesn't seem to be an end to its beauty for the next few weeks, I can honestly say that I think summer is here to stay and I am more than happy to combat hay fever and the humid commute to work, as I am keeping my cool in dresses perfect for a summers day and stretching into the night.

I was in my element, my comfort zone as it were in this dress from Stradvarius (black version), I was a little unsure if it would keep me cool as it's knitted just like this one I also got from M&S but I'm not gonna lie they are perfect for this weather, it's not a heavy knit, light enough to get the air in, plus its hot a great flattering shape so that it billows at the bottom drawing some cool air up, they are both perfect for summer walks through the park and to beat the summer heat, just make sure you top on the sunscreen for you and the family.

Honestly when it comes to dress shopping who has the time trapesing from store to store to find the perfect dress to keep cool in this summer, hands up, not I! But I got you covered as I did the legwork for you, all you need to do is just add slides, or comfy trainersgold hoops and cat-eye sunnies.
