From postnatal workouts and afternoon tea to organic fashion and choosing your next holiday. Here’s what the My Baba team are loving this week.
YOUR NEXT HOLIDAY: Travel Republic’s holiday generator
Struggling to decide your next holiday destination? Perhaps you’re planning one final holiday with your partner before the baby arrives or it’s your first trip away as a family. I recently came across Travel Republic’s Holiday Generator, a quick quiz to decide where to visit next. City break or beach holiday is your first decision, a preference you’ll probably have in your mind already. Select a family, friends or partner option. Choose a couple of activities you’d like to do on the holiday, then it’s over to the holiday generator to find your dream destination. For me, a family beach holiday with eating and watersports has me considering a trip to Dubai. If the option doesn’t feel quite right, keep going, tailoring the options to whatever you fancy.
