FEELING FLORAL

18 May

So the weather isn't' much of a reflection today, but seeing as it's Chelsea Flower show this week I am feeling a little floral. And thanks to these two utterly adorable brands, the littlest ones can too.

Alimrose designs, Australia's favourite when it comes to baby gifts, have the sweetest collection of baby soft toys, including these cute dolls. They come in lots of different sizes and styles (the ballerina dolls are extra lovely) but my favourite has to be Audrey Sweet Blossom. (The little ones adore her equally so, thanks to her pretty face and little size for tiny hands. Do ... Read More

OH, THE GLAMOUR!

So lets face it, there is nothing glamorous about breastfeeding. It's a full-time and demanding role that comes with awkwardness, bad-timing and sometimes even pain.(Especially at the beginning.) However, there's nothing more natural or rewarding, and you simply cannot beat that feeling. So, if you can, all of those negativities aside,  I would always encourage any new-mum to give it a go. In the long run the positives more than out-weight any negative.

It's on this pro-breastfeeding note that I would like to introduce the new breast-pumping range from Lansinoh. Famous for thei ... Read More

LADY IN RED

8 May

Hilaria baldwin
Not all of us would opt for such an eye-catching hue whilst eight months pregnant, but for those that dare, why not look to Hilaria Baldwin and her bump for inspiration. Dressed in a statement red (well it's actually bright coral)  maternity maxi dress whist out and about with her family in New York, one can't help but feel a little jealous of how good she looks.

I am not a huge fan of red, for me it's a colour for brunettes over blondes. I will always stick to a more subtle injection. I love a red nail for example. However, if you are looking for Hilaria's look, perhaps for a ... Read More

LITTLE INTERIORS

I love searching out cool new children's brand and boutiques. I find myself more often than not these days purchasing on-line. Simply because that's where you can find the most unique and gorgeous things. Whether it be clothing, toys or interiors, I so much prefer high-quality stylish pieces that are different. For me a children's bedroom or nursery should be just as well designed as any other room in your house.

When it comes to little interiors then, this cannot be more of the case. I just adored decorating both my girls nurseries. It is one of the most exciting parts about ne ... Read More

LITTLE DUDES

As a mother of two girls, when it comes to mini-style I have it easy. From my own shopping experiences, just keeping an eye out to all aspects of fashion, I notice (and am constantly hearing complaints from friends) that comparatively little boys style is a lot harder to come by. So this one if for you guys. Those with little dudes. Aptly, dudesndolls.co.uk.

Dudes n Dolls offer simple, cool, quirky, and stylish, printed leggings and harems. That, most importantly here, are very reasonably priced. Not may of us feel the need to pay £30 for leggings, even for ourselves....If I ha ... Read More

NAUTICAL UPDATES

27 Apr

Sartorial wise, a striped top is one of my favourite wardrobe staples. Nine times out of ten you will see me reach for a stripe when it comes to everyday style. Thrown on with denim of some description, or favourite leather pants, it's a style that is as simple as it is perfect. Every season nautical themes make a comeback in some way or another. So what's more of an excuse needed to update those stripes?

For pregnancy I love the simplicity of a striped tank, top, or dress. Isabella Oliver is a go-to. I lived in their ruched t-shirt dress during both my pregnancies, and their up ... Read More

Apologies in advance for the review-style feature here, but I feel this exciting new brand is worth a mention. I was recently sent one of their baby bottles to try out and think it's really quite cool so wanted to share.

mOmma is a funky new range of toddler feeding products brought to us by well know maternity brand Lansinoh. As they should, each product is designed to aid development, entertain and stimulate toddlers during mealtimes, using only the highest quality materials in the safest and most hygienic way. And, well generally, just encouraging all those good eating habits ... Read More

BEST FOR BABY’S BATH

17 Apr

Bathtime snuggles
When it comes to little ones and their skin, especially delicate newborn skin, it's important to respect that vulnerability. Your baby trusts in you to give them only the very best. They do advise not to give your newborn a bath for the first week or two, instead sticking to a quick top and tail with plain warm water. But when you do give them that first special experience, what's best when it comes to product?

Personally I will always try to stick to natural and organic baby products wherever possible. If I ever do have to use a perfumed wipe or chemically infused product I imm ... Read More

THE DUNGAREES

16 Apr

Lily aldridge
An age old favourite, the maternity dungaree's. I love a denim dungaree's pregnant or not. It's a chic, laid back-look. An easy-alternative to the double-denim vibe, requiring minimum effort when it comes to getting dressed. Simply pair with a plain cotton T or vest.

Spotted on many a pregnant celebrity, or stylish mum  (being a mum is not a requirement here either please note), this latest image of model Lily Aldridge got me inspired. Re-kindling my love of the denim dungarees. Her specific flared style is by Stella MaCartney, so maybe not an option for the majority of us, but ... Read More

LITTLE SWIMMERS

There is no time like the present when it comes to investing in those new summer additions. And even more so where little ones and swimming costumes are concerned. Every season when I go to stock up for our Italian summers away, there are never any sizes left in my favourites. Don't you just hate that? Well, this year, and with two little ones to purchase for, I have vowed to get in there early.

With my most recent quest under-way I came across this really cool children's boutique, Busy and the Boy, and instantly fell in love with their little swimwear collection. We travel quit ... Read More
