About Me

Hello and Welcome to Salt and Sand

Thanks so much for stopping by.

This is my place where I write about the adventures we have as a family of seven (and 3 pooches!) and all things I love. In between the chaos there is plenty of laughter which always keeps us entertained!

I’m Ruby, Wife to Jonnie! Mama to Five, two teenagers, two in between and a baby!

I’m a compulsive photo-taker and keen adventurer! Born and raised in Suffolk, here are my roots.

Based on the Suffolk coast line, we spend a lot of time outdoors. I hope you enjoy coming along on our many trips ! To keep up to date with all the latest posts, make sure you subscribe to the Salt and Sand notifications and of course, follow me on Instagram!

    My mum-in-law makes fabulous clothes for her grandchildren. She’s just starting out making her love of designing and making clothes into a business. Would you take a look at her Etsy page? I really think the eye cayching designs and home made clothes are beautiful and my 4 year old absolutely loves wearing them.


    Thanks, Rebecca

    Hi Ruby
    I just came across your fab blog and have been lost in all of the interesting articles when I should be getting dressed!!! 😝
    I would love to introduce you to my little brand Lala + Zizo which I am launching in April. My name is Vickie El-Rayyes (aka @mum_of_lalaandzizo on Instagram) and wondered if you would like to come to my little launch party 22nd April on Portobello Road, where I could introduce you to my brand in the hope that you may be interested in sharing the story of my brand at some point in the future? Hope you don’t mind the direct approach, hope to meet you soon! Happy Valentines 💕
