I hope you all had a lovely weekend. We have been busy with our Beauty Master Class last week and today our Kensington Mums and Bumps coffee morning. We have been heavily involved with our Kensington community and would like to share with you some exciting events taking place this week for you and your little ones.  Save the date for our 3rd blog-anniversary dinner on 1st of December. We will also be sharing with you as a fantastic competition to all of our subscribers. Stay tuned! Wishing you all a great start of the week.

We had a full house at our coffee morning today at Hotel Chocolat, check out the live chocolate demonstration clip over on our Instagram account. Pictures to follow soon!


Kensington Mums attended the Kensington High Street Bussiness Forum, making our high street a better place.


If you follow us over on Instagram, you would have known that we had a great morning breakfast which was held at the Serpentine Gallery by the Doyle Collection.


After a hard working week, the Kensington Mums team was invited to an afternoon tea at the Kensington Hotel. The cakes were yummy and our table in front of a cozy fire was just what was needed. A great way to unwind, relax and connect. Highly recommend it!
