Cable & Cotton rainbow lights in the kids' bedroom

You may remember my excitement at getting these rainbow lights for the kids for Christmas.  They're now up and we love them!  They were pretty popular on Instagram so I thought I'd share a bit more info here as I had a few people asking about them.  

You can now buy a ready made rainbow set on the cotton & cable website (after they saw how popular my set was!) but it has a more pastel tone so if you're after one more intensely coloured like mine, see the list below.

2018 Family Friendly Festivals in Kent & East Sussex

I need to look forward to sunnier times and happy events we have coming up this year.  This winter has sucked since the new year with illness after illness in our household and it's getting me down.  Big time.  I am running on empty.  Lack of sleep and work stress aren't helping so I need some things to look forward to and as we're attending a few festivals this year, I thought I'd do a little round up of what's on!  If there are any we don't have listed below, please let me know, we're always looking for new adventures to try!  We'll be attending all of these below and I can't wait!

You can read my reviews below of each of the ones we've been to previously and check out how much fun we had and what to expect.  Here's a list in consecutive order with the first one being in just over a week! 

Some of these are free events and I also have some tickets to give away for a couple of these so watch out over the next few months - make sure you're following Olive Dragonfly on Facebook and Instagram so you don't miss out!

Sunday Lunch at The Crown Inn, Newick - review by Bex

You may have already seen this one if you get Uckfield Matters magazine as it appeared there first.  

As part of my Local Roasts series of reviews, I went along to check out Sunday lunch at The Crown Inn in Newick with Nik, the twins and my in-laws.  It had been recommended by a friend and didn't disappoint!

Photography school - a review of Unraveled Academy

Back in June last year, I heard about Unraveled School which was just starting up and I joined as one of the first fifty as part of their special offer and I got their presets pack for free which I love!  I started writing about it back then on my Bexphoto blog but never actually finished writing about all the awesome stuff involved and now I love it so much I wanted to share it here too in case any of you guys fancy learning new ways to improve your own photography, I can't recommend it enough!  It's $15/month which really is a bargain for everything that's included, you can find out more and sign up at Unraveled Academy here.

The school is run by awesomely talented and super friendly Coleen Hodges and Sarah Driscoll, both photographers I admire, even more so as I've gotten to know them better through various ways over the last few months.  The school has so many avenues for learning, I'm finding a multitude of ways to improve my photography and they've got a fab new offer too so keep reading to find out more!

My most recent feature on the Unraveled blog.

Wassailing at Oast Farm Buxted

We'd never heard of wassailing before we moved here.  You'll probably already know how much we love visiting Oast Farm shop & cafe and it's there we first heard about the wassail.  Until now, it's always clashed with Nik's weekend at work or the twins' nap time but this year we made it along and we loved it!

If, like us, you haven't heard of this ceremony before, it's basically a way to bless the orchard to ensure a good harvest come autumn.

The awesome Bob in his crown, excited to get wassailing
