BACK TO SCHOOL

24 Aug

Back to school. With just two weeks to go i'm conscious that I need to start getting organised. First up then, school shoes. We could probably eek out another term's worth of receptions pair if they weren't looking quite so worse for wear. But I would feel totally mean sending Annabella into year one looking anything but polished and smart. She would be mortified if no-one else. So the hunt is on for something practical, (velcro straps), in black leather, (she's not allowed blue or patent) and that also look cute. I am not a Clark's shopper.

POM-POMS AND POPLIN

18 Aug

IMG_3613
Apologies for my extreme lack of radio silence. The combination of school holiday's, summer in Italy and trying to keep on-top of running my own business, has resulted in me literally having no spare time to blog. However, I have been getting so many PR and collaboration requests recently, I though it best time I update things.

So what better place to start than with a bit of fashion inspiration? In-particular two of my current favourite trends - pom-pom flats and poplin. Extravagant and fun, the pom-pom flat had been trending for a whi ... Read More

CHILDREN’S PARTIES GALORE

10 Jul

IMG_2047
June is literally the busiest month for us when it comes to children's birthday parties. When I was pregnant with A we did NCT class and all of us were due within a few weeks of each other. There were five of us in total, three girls and two boys. Would you believe that all three of our girls were born three days in a row?! The boys weren't far behind, and both came along within two weeks. For us then, June is a busy month of present buying and outfit planning. And there's no better excuse for me to pick out some cute new outfits so the girls can get dressed up. I use the excuse that ... Read More

WEDDING GUEST

12 Jun

Lavinia dress
I'm not pregnant but if I was, Madderson's Lavinia dress would be a strong contender for Summer's wedding season. Styled with gold, who says the pregnant guest can't win best dressed? (Bride aside.)

Madderson London, luxury maternity wear for stylish mums-to-be, have a stunning collection and their statement pieces this season are no exception. I discovered this brand during my last pregnancy and was blown away by their quality, design and ease of wear. I naturally progressed into womenswear and have held back those maternity p ...

Muddy creatures. Our box of Joy.

18 May

This is just the most exciting new shopping concept I have come across to date. Mostly because I have lost all interest in the high street when it comes to kids fashion, secondly because I never have the time to go shopping anyway. Muddy creatures, for young explorers. It really is a box of joy!

So what is Muddy Creatures and how does it work? The process is simple. Sign up and create a profile for your child, then sit back and relax whilst Anja sends you a box full of things she thinks you will love. You then have ten days to try them ... Read More

Eat Sleep Love. The nursery consultants.

28 Apr

east sleep love
As you probably already know the world of parenting is a minefield. There is a different product, opinion, wives-tale, about literally every aspect. From personal experience, the best approach to all of this is; explore everything and then make up your own mind. You are the parent and at the end of the day only your choice, your opinion, matters. So when something comes along that is designed to make some of these choices easier, based on this exact same philosophy, well, that's a good thing.

Introducing nursery consultants eat sleep love. The concept i ... Read More

When it comes to denim there is no right or wrong. There will always be room for more than one style. Skinny, flared, distressed, boyfriend, girlfriend, cropped, it all depends on your mood. Right now my mood is on the new season denim. It's all about a wide leg and focus is on the hem.
