Amsterdam Graffiti - 48 Hours in Amsterdam with Kids - Insider tips and advice for a weekend in Amsterdam with young children. Where we stayed, we ate, what we saw!

TamingTwins began as a UK food and parenting blog in late 2013 when I’d just discovered that I could, in fact, have twins and stay reasonably sane. I thought I’d share some tips and advice about parenting in case they were helpful to any soon to be parents of multiples.

Quickly the other love of my life, food, took over. I spent the days juggling miniature people and writing and photographing food for the blog. It was a total revelation. I felt that for the first time in my whole adult life, I’d found what I was supposed to be doing. I could be a Mum and spend the rest of my time creating and sharing in a way I’d never considered before. TamingTwins became partly food blog too.

As our family life changed since the blog began, we started to travel and explore again, this time with the children. I love sharing these stories of our adventures on the blog, especially when I receive messages and comments from people saying “I’d never have considered braving travelling with my toddlers, but you’ve given me the confidence to”.

My social media experience as a former business owner, provides a unique insight when working with brands to reach a family audience. My passion for social media is reflected in my following of over 450,000 people across platforms. I love working with brands to come up with creative campaigns to tell a story about their product via my site or theirs.

Some other bits:

• Official Pinterest UK Ambassador.
• Finalist in the BiB Awards 2014 and MADs Awards 2015.
