I’m 34, a mum of two and a wife of one. The *work* me is all about Social Media (for now) The *other* me is a full time college student, trying really hard to get into midwifery – nothing like a life change to spice things up a bit. I’m lucky to have a position where I can just about balance all work & family things, but it’s taken me a while to get here. (I used to believe it was all about luck, now I just believe in working hard & making my own luck)

I like France, shopping, glossy mags, loud music and good grammar. My hair is ridiculously long but I’m far too attached to it to cut it. I am newly addicted to travel, and despite my lowly student budget, I have big plans to see the world. I also *love* a good cocktail.

This blog is a record of what we’ve done, what we want to do and occasionally, how we’ve changed our minds.

    Hi Katie. I wanted to send you an event invite on behalf of my client, Kaleidoscope.

    The Autumn/Winter 2014 blogger evening will take place in London on June 3rd. It will be a really fun evening of champagne, canapes and a presentation/short talk on this season’s collection – plus some competitions, giveaways and a goody bag.

    Do let me know if you can make it. It would be lovely to have you there. Best wishes, Hayley.

    Hello Katie

    My name is Halit and I’m doing some work on behalf of Auto Europe

    They recently conducted a survey on British traveller’s holiday habits.

    Most Brits will drink 56 alcoholic drinks, have 4 rows and moan about being too hot 8 times during an average fortnight abroad!

    They’ve created an infographic with the results, which I’ve can send to you for your review, should you wish to use all or some of it.

    Auto Europe is asking bloggers to provide their own stories on which habits they have whilst on holiday to share with your readers. These could be humourous things, terrible experiences or something wonderful that only happens when you’re abroad.

    I’m not going to sugarcoat this any further as you are a professional blogger, so please find the details as to the client’s request for a blog post:

    Please could you link to the homepage of Auto Europe, using the brand name “Auto Europe”
    (Optional) Link to the infographic page or embed the infographic (or elements of it) in the post
    Please cross promote blogs posts via their social channels using the hashtag #AEmemories

    A money payment of £60.00GBP can be given and one blogger will be picked at random by the client to win the use of a luxury car for the weekend to make some new motoring memories with their family in style.

    Anyhow, I hope this is something you might be interested in Katie?

    Kind regards
