Parents of the North - Natalie - The Simply Small Co

Welcome back to the Parents of the North feature, where I've invited local mams and dads to spill about why they love to raise their kids here in the North East. This week its Natalie from The Simply Small Co's turn. If you didn't catch last week with super mam of  almost 5 kids (she's 39 weeks pregnant) Jayne's post, then check it out here. If you fancy featuring then please get in touch via the contact us page.

Not only does Nat run a gorgeous children's store, but she used to work for the English Heritage, so knows her way around a family friendly visitors destination. Basically she is far more qualified than me to run a family blog - so lets all promise that we aren't going to burst my bubble and mention it to her okay? This post is a lovely long one, with lots of recommendations, and details about Nat setting up her own company. I loved it - Enjoy.

Proper Belta Pressies - North East Christmas Gift Guide

I think I've made no secret of the fact that I love the North East and all that it has to offer. As well as the brilliant coastline, quayside, restaurants, days out and family bloggers (haha), I love that we have so many amazing independent businesses that sell unique, quirky and cool stuff, with lots of it being made right here in the North East. To coincide with small business Saturday, I've pulled together this Christmas gift guide where I've picked out some of the best presents and Christmas treats for everyone in the family, all from local brands.
