You really can lock yourself up into a metropolis bubble. Dear God, the traffic, soot and sardine like people packed buses and trains. No air conditioning in summer! London I love you, but sometimes, it’s nice to get away.
A born and bred city girl (would never change this for the world) sometimes still likes to let the crashing waves tickle her eardrums and this is exactly what we did!.
Feet shuffling towards the baggage check-in, now with practice we manage to navigate through security with ease. Out comes the baby carrier, fold the buggy, laptop, phones and shoes in the tray along with the baby bottle, food and cosmetics in another. Security check, done! Ok, you got this mama!
Eye mask on, a movie, a few plane meals and mandatory champagne ( to keep mama sane with a toddler on the flight) later, we awake in sunny Cancun. A place that draws both spring breakers, history buffs and pensioners with a roaming eye for the roulette and black jack tables.
Reclining my seat, I realise it’s been a long while since I dared get into a swimsuit after the birth of my baby. Oh, the horror for the onlookers. Nonetheless, I am desperate to catch up on my latest read Diane Von Furstenberg’s, The Woman I Wanted To Be and want to blend seamlessly in with the rest of the swimsuit clad, palm tree thatched roof shaded, coconut and cocktail swigging crowd.

I use the Sunscreen and natural self-tan that moisturises and leaves the skin so soft from this company |Here.I love it because it’s all organic, smells so amazing that even the local insects are attracted to it (yes be warned!) and has no harmful synthetic ingredients. It’s a little low on the SPF but I make up for it with regular application and also by using a different one on my face with a higher SPF.
