My name is Donna.  I’m a full-time blogger which allows me to stay at home with my gorgeous son and daughter.

I started blogging in July 2013 when I was pregnant after I’d left my job in media.

I blog about a full range of things.

I would classify my blog as a lifestyle blog with emphasis on travel and fashion.  All while raising my son, and his soon to be sister.

We’re currently renovating our home, so I frequently include home decor on my blog, and I occasionally write up a beauty article too as my background includes make up qualifications and I’m a qualified beauty therapist.

I occasionally dabble with You Tube when it fits in by creating a vlog from time to time.

So if you want to follow my rather random little journey into Motherhood and my crazy life please do follow my blog and YouTube channel.


You can contact me on my blog by commenting on my posts.  I always reply to comments.

You can also find me pretty much 24/7 on Twitter, Facebook or on Instagram, or if you need to email me you can at thelondonmum@hotmail.com.

Work with me

I’m a PR friendly blog.  I’m more than happy to review products or services in return for payment and/or goods.  I’ll only work with brands or companies that I think fit well with my lifestyle and my blog.  If in doubt please ask.

In the past I have worked with brands such as Boden, Barbour, Ugg Australia, Kindle and Ralph Lauren.  I’ve also worked with Johnson’s Baby on a variety of their YouTube videos.

I’m also available to write blog posts for your company, create vlogs for brands or work alongside a PR company needing the expertise of a Mummy blogger all for appropriate compensation for my time.  I’m also available to work on social media networks to increase your brand awareness.

If you want to know more about my blog, see if we could collaborate or just want to work with me somehow or another please contact me thelondonmum@hotmail.com.


I sometimes make money from products I talk about but they are all products I advocate.

  3. Hi

    I hope you’re well. My name’s Garima, and I’m an SEO, and have worked in SEO for 5 years now. I recently started freelancing, and I’m currently looking to expand the network of people that I work with.

    I have a client website that falls into the category of mattresses (mum blogs, lifestyle, home decor etc), and as such I’m seeking relevant partner websites that will allow me publish high quality, relevant content.

    It would be great to hear from you if you think we can do business. Do you publish featured guest posts? Do you have a rate card and metrics please?

    I came across your website and really enjoyed reading through it. I wanted to see if you were open to guest contributions? I work for Modernize.com and we’re looking to contribute articles about home improvement and decor and think your website would be a great fit!
    Here are a couple examples of recent articles our writers have written:
    Let me know if you have a topic in mind and we can get started right away.

  6. Good morning,

    I am a parenting consultant and am very interested in contributing to your blog.I am based in London but I also cover all over the UK. Kerry Cares offers skype or phone consults to give advice to parents with any concerns they may have, big or small! All my advice is from a gentle perspective and because I firmly believe that all parents and babies are wonderfully unique, all of my advice is individually tailored and bespoke to each family. There are no such thing as a text book babies.My service is friendly, empathetic and non-judgemental.

    My mantra is” There are no right rules or ways to raise your children just what is right for you and your children.” I believe this a fresh and modern approach to parenting which will strike a chord with your readers.

    .I would love to guest write as a blog or offer a question and answer session with your readers. I am also happy to be interviewed as an editorial piece.

    Here are some latest examples of my work:



    Look forward to hearing from you.



  7. Hi & thanks for introducing me to your blog. I really like it and I am following on bloglovin’ are you on Instagram?

  8. Dear Donna,

    I hope you can help me. We are raising awareness about cord blood banking to expecting couples in the UK. We run a free information site and work alongside the public and private sectors.

    Our website is stemology.co.uk and strongly believe that all parents should know their options before they give birth.

    Cord Blood can cure all the conditions treated with bone marrow and many more. Its especially important for ethnic and mixed race families as they don’t have a good chance of finding matched cells from a public registry.

    I have posted a short message on your FB page and hope this is not seen as spam.

    I was hoping that you could help us by spreading the message to your friends, family & followers.

    Please feel free to go through our website and contact me for more information.

    Thanks for your time


  9. Dear Donna

    I am a high-end baby, child and family photographer based in West (and South West) London known for my use of natural light to create beautiful, sparkling images! I used to be a corporate lawyer for 10 years in London (and latterly in the Cayman Islands) before I set up my photography business, which is definitely quite a change! I am also a photographer for Getty Images.

    I adore your blog and would love for you to experience my photography, if you think you might be keen?

    My website is http://www.heatherneilson.com.

    With warmest wishes,

    Heather x
