5 Countries I’d Love to Visit

Everyone dreams of winning the lottery one day and many of us have already started to make plans what we will do when the prize money comes our way. For some, the top priority is to purchase a new home; for others, caring for one’s children and their future education is much more important. There are those who see a big lottery win as the means of purchasing luxury items, such as a new car, or even a private jet. But for me, if I won a big lottery jackpot playing EuroMillions, I would put travel at the top of my list.

Venice Food Tour with The Roman Guy

Our last-minute holiday in Venice to soak up the last of the summer sun was just what we needed. Venice is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and still one of my favourite destinations. It also makes a wonderful break with kids in tow. While we were there we were lucky to experience the recently launched Venice ‘Locals’ Four Tour with The Roman Guy, a company offering unique tour guides throughout Italy. There are currently seven available tours in Venice and we picked the food tour. I’ve been to Venice several times previously so know the city well but wanted to try something I hadn’t yet experienced. The aim of this particular food tour is to be shown several Venetian food neighbourhoods by a local resident who knows his facts! This was my first Italian food tour and I was excited to see what it was like, especially with two energetic four year olds on tow!

How to Child-Proof Your Stairs

One of the most difficult changes you must make after having children is turning your previously adult-orientated home into a safe space for young ones. Of all the areas in the home, the staircase is one of the most common places where injuries can occur due to falls. The stairs can also be a difficult place to child-proof: not every staircase is the same, which means that there’s no exact guidance to follow. Here’s everything you need to know about making your stairs safe for young ones.

Vegan Pizza Party @PizzaExpress

This week, I attended the first ever Vegan Pizza Making Party at Pizza Express. Held in the newly refurbished Gloucester Road branch, I ventured into London to make my very own vegan/dairy free pizza. I should start by saying I’m a pescatarian, so I don’t have any meat in my diet but do eat fish. I’ve also gone through phases of giving up fish and being entirely vegetarian and prefer to avoid cow’s milk. Many of my friends are vegetarian or vegan and Brighton is a wonderful place for it with an abundance of vegan/vegetarian options available in cafes, restaurants and shops. I have eaten many vegan dishes in the past but this was the first time at sampling a vegan pizza.
