Eekh! Time Flies …

– October Events, Halloween and Half-Term


Ghosts and ghouls, eerie nights and big frights may seem a distant dream on a day like today. And Halloween is a thought only just forming …


But by the time 31st October rolls in, the blue skies will be distant memories and you’ll be scrounging around to find the perfect place for your little Pumpkin on this her inaugural Halloween. This year, Halloween falls on a Friday night so it’s ideal for a family affair.


Use’s Directory of Halloween Events to decide where you’ll be. And, let the trick or treating begin …


While online, check out Mini-et-Moi’s Ultimate Guide to Half Term. With enough activities to entertain your half pint for a full week when the days are short and the nights long and dark – the prospect of which has given you a scare! (And more than any fluorescent orange pumpkin face).

Bad Hair Day

– Super salons for cheerful chopping


I'm bored!

Bad Hair Days. We’ve all had them. But what to do when your little love’s locks are making your hair stand on end?




Whether it’s time for a chop in Chelsea, a quick cut in Clapham or a trim in Twickenham, our directory of children’s hairdressers lists where you should take the little princess for her first salon experience. 


With our help, you’ll find a salon no further than a hair’s breadth from your usual stamping ground. (Hey, we’ve even got hacking in Haringey covered.)


Ask any expert  – it’s all in distracting your little Rapunzel and then getting the job done, well, er, chop-chop.


What distraction will work best for you? Fish in a tank? A ride in a car? A Thomas video on a never-ending loop? We’ve got that covered too. Choose wisely and you’ll avoid all tears and screams (of the hair-raising variety).


And with Goldilocks covered, you’d better make sure that you don’t have a hair out of place.

Summer Lovin’

– Make Plans for a Sensational Summer

For a summer that’s fun-filled – fêtes and fairs, fabulous classes, days filled with family fun (think food, music, art and a little bit of culture too), there is only one destination : the Summer Diary.

Enrol in Maggie & Rose’s Jackson Pollack Art Class (the messiest art class ever); join in at Gymboree’s Jamboree (well, their Teddy Bear’s Picnic); or enjoy Eddie Catz’s Summer Camp Program.

Even better – book for grandmas, aunts, and friends in advance, and send them off with junior in tow. Baby-sitting is often less daunting with a pre-determined destination or activity – leaving you to enjoy those Summer days, drifting away.

Click here to work out what you should be doing in July. With our help, you’re sure to love your Summer!

Have you a blast!
