One of the benefits of being a travel writer is that when England decides to inflict such a long winter on us, I occasionally get to escape to warmer climes. In February, my boyfriend and I headed out to Dominica in the Caribbean, where we stayed at the stunning Rosalie Bay. Dominica has an incredible landscape- we discovered beaches, mountains and freshwater rivers running through the jungle. Here are some pictures I took of the walk to a waterfall pool- and then some slightly wobblier pictures that are just stills from my flipcam that a fellow tourist kindly took for us. I’m wearing my favourite Fever swimsuit, the best one-piece I’ve owned in my adult life. Of course it has a built in bra which makes it super flattering. I’m already counting down the days til I get to wear it again!
What’s in Store for 2013?
In January Mr F and I escaped to Riviera Maya in Mexico for some much needed winter sun. Looking grey and slightly knackered after cooking Christmas dinner for 10 people (my first Christmas dinner – just call me Michel Roux Jr). Feeling rather unwell we hopped on a plane and and I could not wait to hit the beach in my new Freya Showboat Bikini and ponder about what 2013 was going to have in store.
Having always set goals for myself each year, I had already started to make a few notes about what I wanted to achieve in 2013 – after all if you don’t know what it is you want to achieve, how can you go about getting it right? So on the 2nd day of our holiday, I sat with my notebook and started to write “2013…” More

What are you waiting for?!
I have been a very lucky girl and had a glorious summer. I have not been away and got a gorgeous sun tan, and I have not sampled Pimms in large quantities (I wish) but I have had my husband by my side for six weeks as he is a teacher and has me helped with the wee ones and some fabulous quality time including Center Parcs, Peppa Pig World and this week The Lake District! I can’t wait!
I have used my swim suits so much as the twins took their first try of swimming – here is me in the Riviera bikini which was so supportive and comfortable with two smalls, who do have a habit of pulling at the most awkward of places often resulting in an escaping breast – not the case this time thank goodness!
I feel I have sung the well deserved praises of Freya swim wear a lot and so was delighted to receive some beautiful lingerie called Tara this month from the Freya Team. So I shall tell you more about it!
