Mummy In Manolos blogs the lifestyle and loves of a mummy with two little ladies, one hot hubby and a shoe addiction. Posts range from fashion and friends to music and mayhem, all with a parental angle and a touch of ‘tongue-in-cheek’ humour.

More about me….
From time to time, I’d like to review various items I’ve bought, and forward you my personal ratings/rantings – these reviews will honestly be my own and not influenced by commercial affiliations. You can read more about this on my Disclosure Page.
Clearly this is my first LOVE – I’m a mummy though, so I have to be practical no?….aaaahahahahahaaaa – yeah right – does this stop me buying dresses from Vivienne Westwood?…NO….it doesn’t – put it this way, I refuse to wear a fleece or trainers other than going for a run or visiting the gym – I LOVE to wear heels and dresses, even for the school gate, (I do that on purpose though – just for the ‘WTF’ looks!). I also have my absolute fave boutiques, and will report and review these too
I’m an interiors enthusiast and have lots of lovely troves I like to visit near me which I’ll definitely share and I don’t mind a spot of gardening and cooking when it suits me – you never know, if I have something in the fridge, which is rare, I may indulge in a recipe or two…. please don’t hold your breath on this one though
I spend a silly amount of personal finances on this indulgence – I also live in a town with a SpaceNK and the Living In Store which stocks the UK’s best beauty products, Neom, Compagnie de Provence and Fragonard to name just a few. I can categorically confirm that the Creme de la Mer eye cream WORKS – but can’t afford it right now, so am on a quest to find a cheaper version – so far no joy, it really is THE best eye cream out there for great results – damn you CDLM!!
As and when we take breaks, which is quite rare, I’ll report back, so I may also have to ask fellow mummy’s here for their reviews on places they can highly recommend WITH children, as this can be quite a tricky area for most parents. I’m still on a quest to find the perfect holiday in Ibiza though with the family. I think I’ll also put some long, romantic weekends away without kiddies in here too
All of the above will have a chic parenting angle, maybe not with the romantic long weekends away. Whatever is reviewed here though, your thoughts and experiences are also very welcome so please let me know what you think too…
