JJ Cole is an iconic American brand, one that I recognise but up until now had never really considered during pregnancy or as a new mum. After being contacted by their UK PR agent I was introduced to a wonderful world of innovative and inspiring products.

JJ Cole collections provide pretty much everything you might need as a parent. From strollers to baby changing bags, bibs to baby bedding. You could quite easily kit out yourself, and your babies nursery, without leaving their website.

I was lucky enough to be send a couple of their products to review. I choose t ... Read More

I have discovered 9 London is one of the Capitals chicest one stop boutiques for everything you need when you are expecting. From maternity clothing to maternity beauty, baby wear and beyond, you will find it here.

Launched by mum of three, Emily Evans, the London store is a haven for all new mummies. My favorite collection has to be her gorgeous line of pregnancy beauty products, Emily Evans mother. The stylish, quirky packaging alone is enough to get these products into my bathroom cabinet!

Velvet Mavis Faux Sheepskin Gilet £148
I just spotted this Faux sheepskin Gilet at Blossom Mother and Child and am now in love. This is the perfect addition to your Autumn maternity wardrobe. It will make even the most basic leggings and t-shirt look totally chic.

I have a faux fur gilet that I lived in during my pregnancy, and I still wear it now. Gilets are perfect as they fit any shape or size bump and allow a snugly warmth without causing you to over heat. If you treat yourself to just one new thing this season I think this style from Velvet Mavis should be it. At just £148 you will definitely get your mone ... Read More

We are constantly bombarded with images of the perfect celebrity mum; flat stomach, perfectly pert breasts, with not a stretch mark in sight. Well, how refreshing to stumble across 'The Shape of a Mother'.

'The shape of a Mother' is a wonderful blog that should be followed by all women, either planning a baby, pregnant or post baby. A blog designed to inspire, empower and encourage. The message is clear; no woman is perfect, and we are all beautiful.

The miracle of growing and bearing a child is one of natures greatest gifts. The stretchmarks and sagging skin th ... Read More

23 Aug

Petite Star have just launched the first ever umbrella fold buggy that flips from forward facing to parent facing in one swift move. What a genius idea!

The new 'bubble' is lightweight and stylish and allows your little one to travel about town with ease, either facing you for peace of mind and eye contact, or facing forwards to watch the world go by.

I was recently on the search for a compact umbrella fold buggy to take away on holiday. My Bugaboo is great, but I wanted something lightweight and compact that I could easily fold at the bottom of the airport steps, ... Read More

Roberto Cavalli
Megan Fox always looks super hot, and pregnancy is no exception.

Pictured strolling through LA with her sister, Megan dressed her growing baby bump in a bodycon floral maternity dress, by Italian designer Roberto Cavalli. Her outfit was accessorised with red wedges and a stack of colourful bracelets.

You may not be able to afford Roberto Cavalli!? So here are my Mumzy-not picks of some similar styles available on the high street.

N.B The good thing about this style of dress is that being jersey it will stretch over your bump, so there is no need for ... Read More

You may all be wondering why Mumzynot has been a little quiet lately? Well, I have just returned from Honeymoon after getting married! As you can imagine I have been rather pre-occupied. But I am now back and raring to go!
