Summer Holidays

I've been lucky to have my husband off for the first week of summer holidays, but now he's back to work I've been trying to plan some fun things for my 6 years old son to do.

If you live local to Bromley (Kent), the Glades shopping centre always has great things for the kids during the holidays. Last year we attended the event 'Kids on the moon' that involved my son in a space suit learning about space and what an astronaut does. 

This year they have an Event called Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes and it's all about the journey through the human body where they dress up as junior doctors and learn fun facts at the same time.

This is a free event running from now till 22nd August and can be booked here. It is recommended for kids from year 1 to year 6 and is 40 minutes long.

The experience:

My son and I arrived at the event, I sat down to relax as my son dressed in his Junior Doctor outfit and started his little journey into becoming a junior Doctor.

They started by doing several exercises, from learning about how important exercise and the right diet is, to learning about the body. They have facts and body organs for the kids to explore which my son found interesting, he actually came back remembering a few things...can't complain really!


They all finish with a little graduation and receive a certificate to say they are now junior doctors! It was not only a fun event for my 6-year-old, but he came out learning a few things too. A bonus really, especially as it's harder to get them to do any sort of learning during the holidays!

We then popped to a few shops before spending the evening having dinner in one of their many restaurants. My son had a little play around in the park before we left too, which is directly outside the Glades. It's a cheap day out and keeps the little ones busy! Highly recommend!

If however, you're not local to Bromley, below are a few other options to help you through the summer holidays! Free or not that expensive for the summer holidays:

Local Parks ie. Crystal Palace Park, Dulwich Park, Greenwich
Exploring local forests
Mini Golf
Indoor crafts

Sale Buys

Sale shopping can sometimes be a bit too much, especially in stores. You can get a bit carried away and buy things you won't usually buy or even need, it's usually the buzz and the reduction in price we all go crazy for! I don't tend to buy too much in the sale unless it was something I have been eyeing up for ages or a wardrobe essential. This year I stuck to my essentials, two basic t-shirts and a Mac from Zara. I think being pregnant also helped to my advantage, nothing ever fits and there is only so many baggy clothes a girl can have!

I have gone through a few of my favourite stores and picked out some great sale buys, hopefully, it will carry you onto Autumn/Winter:

The skirt below will take you into Autumn/Winter, wear with a simple tee tucked in, with sandals or trainers. Then for next season wear it with ankle boots and a chunky jumper.
The pink sandals are perfect for adding colour to an outfit, great for holidays too. (Also comes in blue).


So many lovely things in Mango I love. All easy to wear and wearable year after to year. Shirts are great buys, wear with shorts or jeans anytime. Love the below yellow and white ones below.

Yellow Shirt, Bag, Jeans
Dress, White shirt

So many clothes in ASOS, hard to filter down but here are a few I found I like.

Top, Jeans, Jumpsuit

Happy Shopping!
