Apr 01 2020

In these weird times of self-isolation we all need cheering up and the perfect movie to that effect is Trolls World Tour, an exhilarating animation perfect to connect the kids generation with their parents through a cool story, quirky characters and amazing music. 

As an extra treat, check out my interview with film director Walt Dohrn I caught up with before the pandemic lockdown. Trolls World Tour is available at home on-demand from 6th April.

Book of the month: Climate Rebels by Ben Lerwill

Mar 31 2020

There is no need to explain how serious the coronavirus pandemic is. While the world has stopped and we are stuck indoor in self-isolation, from the safety of our homes, we watch as the air clears in China, as Venice’s canals shimmer an emerald green full of dolphins, as the plane-free blue skies are full of singing birds, as the ozone hole is repairing itself. As a society, we have been on a trajectory that was simply not sustainable. As humans have retreated, nature is flourishing. Mother nature has been crying out for help for some time and now is showing us that she can recover, when given the chance. A new non-fiction hardback, Climate Rebels, by Ben Lerwill, covers the personal journeys of those humans from around the world who have dedicated their lives to fight to save our planet. Climate Rebels is a beautifully illustrated collection of 25 inspiring true stories and London Mums have voted it book of the month for April 2020. 

From Greta Thunberg and David Attenborough, to lesser-known heroes such as turtle-protector Len Peters and the poacher patrollers The Black Mambas, these stories are proof that one person’s actions can grow into something big and powerful, that can help change the world.

So what factors should new mums consider when buying a car? Let’s take a look at some of the more important criteria.
