She’d suggested that we join up with some of her friends and attend Elderflower Fields Festival. Apparently, Elderflower Fields is the ideal festival for small children.

But then www.fashionworld.co.uk contacted me and asked if I would try some of the summer fashion essentials from their website. I decided that this was my…
