Hi London Mums

Our Winter Magazine issue is here! This London Mums Christmas magazine issue is dedicated to all Shopaholics out there and what better way of do it then with an exclusive chat with Mrs Shopaholic in person Sophie Kinsella, author of the chick-lit Shopaholic novels. For the first time we also have a Star Dad on the front cover, Popstar and Strictly Come Dancing revelation Peter Andre. They both bring glitz and glam to our special double cover issue. We could not choose between Sophie and Peter for the cover so we have placed them on the cover back-to-back.

Other magazine highlights include film critic Freda Cooper’s reviews of the family movies for this Christmas, an insight in the new Bratz dolls and lots of Christmas Gift pages filled with lots of Shopaholic inspiration for your seasonal shopping and beyond. Shopaholics also take a trip to Italy and show you how to enjoy La Dolce Vita. But London Mums also do serious stuff and to prove it to you our child reporter Diego and I took a first aid course and reported back on how it all went.

Enjoy reading our Shopaholic issue as much as we have enjoyed making it! As we are entering the busiest season of the year, we want to celebrate with you at an early Christmas Party with a dancing and superhero theme. See you there!

Dear London Mums

After handing over the children over to the teachers, it feels we have started breathing again after the long Summer holidays. But actually with less than a month away to Halloween and less than three to Christmas, more holidays are creeping up again.

Halloween Half Term week is not that scary though. Look at our list of things to do in London and you will be spoilt for choice, from lots of free events to expensive ones. There’s something for every pocket.

Our London Mums magazine Christmas issue will be here soon with a surprise double cover and our first celebrity dad on the cover. I cannot wait to share it with you all. Every issue is like a new baby!

OPEN ME PLEASE! September 2015 Newsletter including Back-to-school essentials & Autumn in London events

Sep 03 2015
back to school

Dear London Mums

I am not sure how you all feel but I am really exhausted and need a holiday now that we go back to our routine after the school holidays! I am totally ready to send my son to school… A quite strange Summer for me as I have had to live with two fractures from a silly beach volley tournament. One big lesson I have learnt is not to follow my 20 something inner voice imprisoned in a 40+ body! Food for thought for any mum out there.

Animated by my broken bones’ pains, I was pondering what to do with this newsletter in future. Email providers have become really expensive and as more and more of you sign (Thank you a lot by the way), my costs go up too. I am not even sure that this newsletter delivered via an email is the best way to reach you in the era of social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc). Before making the ultimate decision, it would be helpful to find out from you whether you would still like to receive these emails.  So I will do some data cleansing and will delete inactive accounts over the coming weeks. If you want to keep receiving these emails, I need you to PLEASE OPEN THIS EMAIL (not just read it in your preview windows) and click on any of the links provided below. Thank you for now and for helping me in my newsletter dilemma.
