PR & Reviews

I welcome requests from PR companies for products and opportunities relevant to my family, blog and readers. You can contact me in several ways including email, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, all details can be found on the contact me page.

I am a married mum of five in my 30s, I have two daughters aged 22 and 10 years, and three sons aged 19, 17 and 14. My 17 year old son has Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We are also the proud owners of a Chorkie called Florence, a Miniature Dachshund called Jospeh (Joey) and a Dachshund called Margot. If you want to know more about me, it's all here in my about me.

We live in the West Country, and enjoy lots of outdoor pursuits, including camping, nature trails, walking and family days out. We enjoy trying new things, visiting new places and experimenting with food and new recipes. The children are always very keen to give exciting new toys and games a proper road testing as well as being heavily involved in many sports (rugby, football, tae kwon do, gymnastics, golf, and swimming). My daughters and I love pretty things such as jewellery, make up and clothing. We're also massive fans of family movie & game night and own Nintendo Switch, XBOX and PS4 consoles as well as iPads. I will always be open, honest and fair in my writing and opinions.

Way back when, I was honoured with a mention in Tots100 UK Parent Blogs Best of 2012 & included in the Tots100 Best Photography Blogs 2013.

Mama Owl was shortlisted in the 2012 BritMums BiB Awards Fresh Voice category, in addition to receiving nominations for The MAD Blog Awards 2013 in the Family Life, Best Writer, Food, and Schooldays categories, and I was delighted to be nominated in The MAD Blog Awards 2014 Schooldays & Family Fun categories.

I was proud to be a 2015 Brand Ambassador for Muddy Puddles as a Muddy Mum, a Toy Team Tester for Learning Resources UKTrunki Chief Testers, #MarkWarnerMum Mark Warner Holiday Ambassadors and Stamptastic Ambassadors. We were also fortunate enough to be selected as Toys R Us Toyologists in 2012 & 2014, and Lalaloopsy Ambassadors back in 2014 in addition to Thorpe Park Island Ambassadors in 2015 and 2017.
