Surviving a heat wave in NYC with kids


So you booked a jaunt to New York with the kids during the school summer holidays, half expecting the weather to mimic London. Little bit of sun, some showers and if you’re lucky shorts and t-shirts weather for the duration of your stay. But you arrive and discover the city is in the midst of a heat wave, but don’t worry here are my top tips to help you have a great time without having to hang out in front of the hotel's air con!

One ‘hill’ of a day out!

One 'hill' of a view from Outlook Hill
The Hills on Governors Island officially opened yesterday, so B and I went along today to make sure we were one of the first to check them out.

A walk in the park


Part of the attraction of moving our little family to Brooklyn was having more than 500 acres of beautiful Prospect Park as our back garden.

If She Can Make It There

Welcome to my blogging journey. I’m Erin, an English gal trying to make it in New York, well Brooklyn to be exact. 

I’m a very proud mamma to four-year-old troublemaker B and wife to a very talented creative developer, Adam.

Last year, looking for something more than what the rural Cambridgeshire could offer us, we packed up our lives, left behind our family, friends and jobs, and headed starry eyed across the pond to the bright lights of New York.

After several months, I am starting to feel like I belong in no-mans land, not quite in touch with day-to-day happenings at home in England (think Brexit) or quite fully fledged New Yorkers (where do I view the 4th July fireworks?). So, I’m turning to blogging for answers or even therapy!

So stay tuned for the trials and tribulations as we try to navigate stateside with a four year old in tow.


If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere right?
