Work With Our Family…
Mummy Daddy Me is a multi award winning blog which began in March 2011 as a way of documenting our lives as first time parents. When I first began it I didn’t realise just how far it would grow and that I would be lucky enough to turn my blog into part of my career- I now work on this blog full time alongside my freelance online marketing business.
It’s ultimately a family blog, telling the story of our lives and our passions, with a large emphasis on my love of travel, photography, interiors and motherhood in general. As a family we love having adventures and have worked with some incredible travel brands including KLM, Thomson Holidays, Beaches Resorts, Mark Warner, Thomas Cook, James Villas and lots of Tourist Boards.
Mummy Daddy Me is growing constantly and to date I have a large influence across all my social media sites, you can check out my current numbers on my sidebar on the home page, but as an example my twitter account alone has a reach of over 85,000. I have a interactive and highly engaged audience which you can see by looking at my social media interaction and reach. It’s not just about having high social media followings, but instead having those followers listening and reacting to what you are saying.
My blog is regularly featured in the press, having appeared in Very, Prima Baby, Mother and Baby, At Home, Gurgle and OK! Magazines. I also was featured as one of the Daily Mail’s Top 10 Mummy Instagram Accounts you should be Following.
Through this blog we have worked with some high profile companies and on some incredible campaigns. Below are just a few of the companies we have worked with.
I also regularly write features for other publications, especially from a travel perspective. Some of the magazines I have written features for are Thomas Cook Airline magazine and Sovereign’s Luxury Travel magazine ‘Arrival.’
Why Should You Work With Us?
We hope you have had a look around our site and you like what you see. But we can give you lots of reasons why you should work with us. Firstly we don’t like to be one of 100’s of bloggers writing about the same thing- so as such we only do a few collaborations a month. We love creative, unique collaborations with brands and we only work with brands who we feel that we can really connect with.
Above all Mummy Daddy Me is all about the life of our family, so we spend a great deal of time creating engaging and creative content that truly tells a story. My passion is taking photos and my photography has been shortlisted for many awards- we can help you promote your brand through photos, words and high quality video content creation.
I not only create video content myself, but also appear in front of the camera too. I create regular content for Channel Mum, a community for Mums run by the people behind NetMums and have recently appeared in campaigns for Cath Kidston, Ladybird Books, Fisher Price and Pampers.
Mummy Daddy Me has a high influence and reach, plus it’s won numerous awards and accolades over the years. I’m regularly in the top 0.5% of parenting blogs in the UK according to Tots100, Cision and Teads.
Due to both myself and my husband coming from marketing and creative backgrounds, we really put our heart and soul into this blog and I hope that it shows in the content we create. If you want to find out more have a look at some of our brand collaborations.

Some of our Favourite Examples of Working With Brands…
-Cath Kidston- #BagsToSchool Campaign
We were honoured to work with one of our favourite brands Cath Kidston on a large scale, high profile campaign centred around starting school. We took part in a day’s worth of filming, where the team from Cath Kidston and some external video production companies came to our house and filmed us for the day. The result is the film below which also features two other blogger families. We also cross promoted the film with blog posts on my blog, an instagram takeover, and regular social media promotion.
– Wickes Dream Kitchen Campaign
I was the only blogger to work with Wickes on an exciting campaign. I was commissioned to work with them on a project designed to help you create your dream kitchen. From start to finish, we worked with Wickes on a series of blog posts, videos and social media shares, and they helped us create our dream kitchen in our home. You can see the finished result here and the other posts here and here.
-Thomson Holidays Orlando and Disneyworld Review Trip
We do a lot of paid travel reviews and campaigns on our blog,whether that is in the UK, Europe or further afield. In October 2015 we travelled to Orlando in Florida on a family holiday campaign with Thomson Holidays. We got to experience Disneyworld which has been a dream of mine since I was little. In return we shared our holiday on social media, including instagram, twitter and Facebook, as well as in three blog posts and two videos. Blog posts are here and here, and videos are here and here.
– Subaru XV Campaign – #XVAdventure
After working with Subaru in the Summer of 2014 on a successful campaign highlighting taking their XV Crossover vehicle out for the weekend campaign, we were invited back to work with them for the whole of 2015 on a year of adventure. We were the only family selected to work with them on a long term partnership which saw us being given an XV vehicle for the year. As part of this ongoing campaign we create monthly videos, regular social media updates and blog post creation.
Below is a video that Subaru created when they came to film us as part of the promotion around the beginning of the campaign, but we also create regular content ourselves too. Here’s an example.
I was chosen to front a Cadbury’s buttons campaign along with two other bloggers. Our photos appeared on billboards across the country, including at the front entrance of all Tescos’ stores.
– eBay Collections
I was one of three bloggers contacted to promote eBay’s new collection too via social media and blog post creation, as well as content on the eBay site itself. As part of this campaign we wrote three blog blogs highlighting the new tool and appeared on the front homepage of eBay for almost a month.
– Slumberdown Ambassadors
I was one of three bloggers to be chosen to be ambassadors for the company Slumberdown, who specialise in products to help you get a good nights sleep. As part of our ambassador role, we test out new products and give opinions, take part in creative campaigns on social media and write engaging content on both our site and the Slumberdown site. We have also created video content for them too. Slumberdown pay us a monthly fee for being their ambassadors and in turn we have a fantastic relationship and loyalty to the brand.
Here’s an example of a blog post we wrote for them introducing the ambassador campaign.
– Clarks Ordinary Moments Brand Book
On my blog I write a lot about our ‘ordinary moments’ and how sometimes it’s the little things in life that mean the most. We were contacted by Clarks Shoes, who loved this ethos and commissioned us to write something for their Autumn/Winter 2014 Brand Book. The brand book went out with every single pair of children’s shoes bought, so obviously was seen by thousands of people.
-Fisher Price Discover Your Way Campaign
We took part in a campaign for Fisher Price called ‘Discover Your Way’ which was all about letting your children interact and learn through playtime. We filmed a short engaging video for them for use on the Fisher Price YouTube channel- to date the video has had over 500,000 hits.
We were contacted by Toddler Fun Learning to work on a really exciting and fun project with Ladybird Books, where we created engaging video content for children based upon reading a story. ‘Storytime’ was filmed at Google HQ in London in the YouTube space and I read three books. Below is an example of one, click here for another.
As a family travelling is our passion we regularly go on review trips together, but I just wanted to highlight an example of the kind of coverage. We were contacted by Beaches Resorts (part of Sandals Ltd) who invited us to visit Beaches Resort Turks and Caicos in the Caribbean. While there we took part in live social media updates to instagram, Facebook and twitter and upon our routine we created three blog posts, as well as creating video content for them- we created two videos for them and these have had over 9000 hits to date.
