JEM + BEA LUXURY CHANGING BAGS

15 Jun

AHP-01-7318
Even before I was pregnant I have always been a little obsessed with baby changing bags. I working on the design and development of a luxury said accessories brand, way before the market even thought about taking off. Now, five years later and two babies down, the world of baby bags has become a lot more mainstream. Just like the regular accessories market there is pretty much a style, colour, shape and price-point, to suit any new mum (or dad) to be. However the majority of these brands are still very much baby inspired. A little too colourful, a little too Mumzy. So still, I get excited when ... Read More

FINERY LONDON

Finery dress
Perhaps not one for those expecting, but worth a bookmark for post-baby treats. A new discovery of mine - Finery London.

As quoted by Vogue: 'Chic, shockingly affordable and very well designed' FineryLondon.com is my kinda online boutique. With a hint of Scandinavian styling, bold prints and masculine silhouettes, there are more than a few looks I wouldn't mind being updated with right now. Favourites include a modern tie-waist jumpsuit and Ivory organza dress, which I think has a real Victoria Beckham vibe. (Maybe not worn with those shoes however. A Saint Laurent Jane would be ...

Another gorgeous childrenswear brand for your little black book - What Mother Made. A friend of mine introduced me a while ago and I have been meaning to get a few pieces for the girls ever since. I finally got around to it the other week. We have been dying to wear this dungarees ever since.

What Mother Made is a beautiful and unique brand that focuses on those more traditional and timeless styles. Vintage rompers and blouses, bloomers, dungarees and checked shirts, all created by hand using the sweetest floral fabrics and bold bright prints. This is not your average high stree ... Read More

MISCHKA AOKI

So today the news was finally confirmed, Kim Kardashian is expecting baby number two. Well that was only a matter of time, hey, all you KWTK fans? So pregnancy announcements aside, and more importantly - what about those tutu's Penelope and North were pictured in recently? Love, love, love.

Mischka Aoki is a luxury childrenswear brand that has been on my radar for a while now, I get regular PR updates to my inbox. But in all honestly had never really taken much notice. Mainly because I am not really into that girly, frilly kinda look - for myself or for my girls. However, this i ... Read More

Even though I am no longer pregnant, I still like to keep on top of the latest maternity collections. Mumzynot is an on line destination for stylish mums and mums-to-be - so it's important to keep the latter readership happy too, right? As well, I am actually a little bit obsessed with maternity fashion. Perhaps even more so than the regular kind. Since the blog started four years ago the world of maternity has come a long way. It actually makes me miss a bump...

So, updates. I am currently obsessed with denim dungarees and ASOS maternity have a cute vintage-wash style. ... Read More

BEST OF BRITISH

Apologies for the lack of posts recently. Things have been super-hectic. As a mum of two little ones, half-term, and running your own business, sometimes one thing or another has to go on the back burner. We have also been away for a few days over the bank holiday, relaxing it up with friends, back to nature, experiencing the best of British. There are so many beautiful places to explore in the UK and Cornwall is one of our favourites.

One bug-bear of mine when travelling within the UK however is what to pack? You never know if the weather will be kind, even in the Summer. Seein ... Read More

FEELING FLORAL

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, Β 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

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)Β  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
