In our house we love holidays and family travel (don’t we all?!) But we also enjoy spending time at home in the UK. Summer is approaching fast – it’s just over one week until my kids break up from school for six whole weeks of fun, and no matter what kind of holiday you have planned; abroad, staycation or activities at home, Matalan has you covered.

They have summer clothing (like my new maxi dress pictured above) for fashionable days out, luggage for far flung destinations or picnic items and games for little adventures at home so there’s no reason to be bored this summer!
