|A casual look for a trip back to the big smoke|
So literally a few days after we came back from our short family break in London the little man and I were off again, on the fast train back to the big smoke. This time however we had company in the form of the lovely and creative blogger Fritha from Tigerlilly Quinn and her son Wilf who we met at Bristol Templed Meads. It was really nice for the little man to have some company and it took the stress off us having to keep them entertained as they played and laughed together most of the way there.

Once we arrived into Paddington station we made a mad dash to the underground which was a bit of a challenge with two toddlers and two small pushchairs, luckily for us most of the time people were more than happy to help us up and down the stairs. Once we arrived in the Square at Covent Garden we were immediately met by some of the Airwick team who had set up a countryside in a box, inviting adults and children in to experience a sense of the countryside right in the heart of the city, with real bunny rabbits and all.

After we had a few moments to look around we joined everyone upstairs at Brasserie Blanc which I highly recommend if your looking for some delicious french food in London and want to experience something a bit special. Both Fritha and I went for the veggie option which was a lovely mixed bean salad followed by a French Onion tart and side salad, the boys had some delicious Pasta and ice-cream which went down well with both of them, unfortunately after two courses of sitting in their seats they were ready to run, so we decided to head back downstairs to enjoy the countryside box.

So what are the new fragrances like? After talking to the Airwick team they made a really good point that most people don't actually want their home to smell too artificial all the time and actually emotionally connect more to natural fragrances in Britians "breathing spaces" and wanted to work on bringing the freshness of Britians countryside inside.

Their new line consists of four nature inspired scents - Yorkshire Dales, Peak Distrcit, Exmoor and Brecon Beacons and with every purchase a donation will be made to support the National Parks. Personally I find these fragrances refreshing and not over-powering and a delight to have in the home, especially when your out number by boys like I am and want to keep the home smelling great.
