Who is BattleMum?

I am Catherine, or Cath for short, and am an Irish expat now living in Portugal by way of the UK. I am a wife, and mum to a little boy of 4. BattleMum is a family travel and lifestyle blog in which I share our own family travels, reviews and tips to help inspire more families to travel, even with toddlers and young children in tow.

“Catherine’s review was great, on time, and complimentary of our products. It was great that she was able to make it possible to work with us even though we don’t currently deliver to Portugal where she is now based. Thanks again for making it so easy to work together!”


I am always excited when I am contacted about UV-Buddy by people that have heard about us and want to learn more about our products & what we are about. 

Battlemum Catherine contacted me asking to review our UV Awareness Accessories for her Blog, I was thrilled and popped a couple of our goodies in the post! 

When I read Catherine’s review I was so happy with the honesty and positiveness of this impartial review. So much so that I chose to run a Facebook Ad for UV-Buddy using Catherine’s review to try and spread what we are about using amazing words by an amazing blogger.

Huge Thank You to BattleMum for the awesome review! 

Provence PR Ltd has produced detailed and quality reviews for us, always on time. A pleasure to deal with.
