GET UPDATES FROM Pregnant City Girl
I am/was a 'high-flying' City trader ( still working, just flying a little lower of my own free will!) I started writing an anonymous blog having found out after a gruelling second round of IVF that I was pregnant. Having spent just over 15 years, straight out of university, working in the City as an Equity Trader, living life minute by minute in a high-pressure, aggressive, male-dominated environment ,as well as being (comes with a job) an accomplished party animal, my life has changed. For the first time in my life I don't need to be on the trading floor by 6.30am. So, I decided to start writing a blog. I now write about the luxury lifestyle that I covet; from food to fashion, home to travel. Find me at

What's It All About? Why I Love Sardinia for Family Holidays Too

Bailiffscourt Hotel - Family Luxury Sussex Hotel and Spa by the Beach

(0) Comments | Posted 14 May 2015 | (15:02)

' I want to stay here forever, Mummy', our parting words with Bailiffscourt! We don't usually get such a strong reaction but I'm guessing it had something to do with the indoor pool and floating 'sausages' provide for the younger guests to play with during children's swimming times.
