About Us


Hello! Welcome to The Twinkle Diaries.

I’m Caro — designer, maker, mama to twins — and this is my diary.

A little space for me to record my thoughts but, most of all, a virtual memory box for my beautiful boys.

I live in a wonky cottage, in Middle England, with my little family.


(big man, shaped boy)


He is one clever cookie. An encyclopaedic brain when it comes to trivia; he can build things, make things and he’s fanatical about rugby and cricket.

Long suffering with my crazy ideas, he’s helped me upcycle a caravan and is wholly responsible for building my long awaited garden office too.

He’s the love of my life — unquestionably — and the most amazing daddy to our twin sons (my tiny boys) who were born in the spring of 2013.

The organiser. This boy likes order; lines of cars, books in bags plus he’s a whizz at building things too. He’s got a killer right arm (future cricket star perhaps?) and he loves his bunny (Bee-Ya) more than life itself.

A little shyer than his brother generally, until he’s at a festival when he suddenly comes into his own. A bit like his mama ;)


(tiny boy 2)


The entertainer. Chatty, cheeky and emotionally intelligent. Cosmo is 30 seconds younger than his twin but has always reached all of his milestones first.

This little chap is a sensitive soul who likes to talk — unless Paw Patrol is on and then you won’t get any eye contact from him until it’s finished. He does an awesome Peppa-Pig impression too.

So that’s us!

about the twinkle diaries

(our little family)


I began The Twinkle Diaries when I was 17 weeks pregnant and never anticipated that I’d still be writing after 3 years.

Over the last year or so, in particular, The Twinkle Diaries has been fortunate enough to work with some amazing brands and our family have had some fantastic experiences, as a result.

This year we’re enormously proud to be on the testing team for the Great Little Trading Company and I’m also a Mark Warner mum.

This little space on the internet is more than a blog. It’s my creative outlet, a memory box for my boys and a diary, charting family milestones.

This is our story.
