British Guild of Travel Writers Awards (thank you Rixos Hotels!) #BGTWawards

A number of times during the evening I looked around and blinked a little. I was having a lot of fun, chatting away to my dinner companions – but every time I looked past them to the wider room I admit I internally grinned madly at myself. Me. Here. The Savoy!

Dear you – I’m really really sorry (*whispers* this one’s not public, it’s just for YOU).

First up – thank you. People find LittleStuff in all manner of ways, and visit for all manner of reasons. But my email subscribers are the most loyal of readers, and I thank you to the bottom of my heart that you’re there. But. LittleStuff is my job, and it pays the bills; in the lean months I have to take on work that I’d probably in other months politely decline. I can choose NOT to share it on social media, and I...

There’s always something more important you...

But now the family has arrived, and we are calling Christmas finally HERE. LittleStuff24 will continue of course – there’s £4000 of prizes available to win, the 24 competitions closing all through January – but we’ll not be...

A Child On Fire, and What Sainsburys Did Next (and a huge hoorah for Claudia Winkleman)

This week I received a press release from Sainsburys, about their 2015 Halloween Dressing Up range – so far so ordinary. But then one particular paragraph caught my eye: “This autumn Sainsbury’s will be offering a host of creepy character costumes for every member of the family (even the dog!) and is making Halloween safer for shoppers as all dress up products now meet the British Nightwear Flammability Standard, which is...
