Resorts we love: Club Med in Mauritius

•••
Before I became a mother I dreaded the thought of going on a club holiday, nothing was further from my mind.

•••
Every summer I take my son on a 3-4 week break somewhere we haven't been before and this year our choice fell on Mauritius.

We've all been there. Life gets hectic, time gets short, the to-do list keeps growing. As a business owner, single mom and city girl I know this all too well.

What it's like to fly long-haul on low-cost carrier Scoot

•••
To say I was suspicious of booking a low-cost carrier to go to to a place that would require over 10 hours of plane travel would be a bold understatement. In fact, when news first hit that Singapore Airlines were launching Scoot, a low-cost airline that offered incredibly cheap deals to go to the likes of Singapore, Bali or Australia I had immediate horror v[...]
