DRESS LIKE A MUM ON A HOLIDAY
My family and I recently went to Kos, Greece with Mark Warner holidays and we had such a great time! Since having children the way we holiday has changed - in order to have to a relaxing time I have worked out that I need to eliminate cooking, cleaning and constant kid entertainment - which are the main things that Mark Warner do so well.
MELISSA ODABASH £140 (was £320) - I love this dress - so comfortable and flattering, the perfect thing to wear pre / post beach.
A typical day on our Mark Warner holiday consisted of waking up and going to the breakfast buffet (which had everything from freshly made smoothies, to a full English, to pancakes). We would then drop the kids off at Mini Club which is like a massive play room, with super friendly staff, loads of toys, crafts and activities - my son went sailing, windsurfing, swimming and played tennis. Then my husband and I would RELAX - we'd either go to the pool, to the beach (i actually read a book!) or to play tennis. We would then pick the kids up at lunchtime and have lunch in the restaurant together.
LOVE MOSCHINO £110 (was £210)
The afternoon was spent with the kids by the pool, in our room, in the playgound and at the beach. We would then take the kids for dinner at 5.30ish and at 7.30pm we'd take them to movie night at the Mini Club - where all the kids sit together and watch a film before getting into their little camp beds and all going to sleep in a row. We would then go for a drink(s) at the beach bar before heading up to dinner. After dinner we would collect the kids (asleep) and carry them back to our room.
The whole holiday worked so well - it is a tried and tested formula where both the parents and kids have a brilliant time.
Of course being on holiday and somewhere with good weather all the time gave me a perfect excuse to pose by some Greek walls in some amazing summer clothes.
