If you’re planning a visit or move to UK then discover a mixture of posts on British lifestyle and kid-related topics.

And be careful how you say it if you’re an American Mom before you ask the hairdresser to trim your child’s bangs! Oh, I’ll never forget their first haircuts in London. My kids first loved wearing onesies and then later they kept warm like rockstars with their Barbours in the countryside. And one of their favourite desserts is Eton Mess !
