KATE MIDDLETON MATERNITY STYLE

31 Jan

KN2
All eyes are on Kate Middleton and her maternity wardrobe. We all want to know what she is wearing and now!

Unfortunately her baby bump is still in it's early stages, so Kate has yet to graduate into full blown maternity wear. However, I like to think that I could style her into the maternity fashionista she is sure to become. For red carpet and high-profile events Kate will look to her favorite designers - McQueen and Temperly - but for everyday wear I believe she will stick to her high-street roots.

One of my favorite Chelsea maternity boutiques is Blossom and I ... Read More

ROCHELLE HUMES

Rochelle Humes has been off the maternity style radar lately, due to spending a lot of her time Stateside trying to crack America. Last night however she was pictured on home soil, with her bump proudly on show in a figure hugging lace midi dress.


Rochelle's dress is the Lulu Lace dress from Isabella Oliver. I have this exact dress and I assure you it's stunning. Perfect for date night or drinks with the girls. Also works post-bump! Get yours here.

WEDGE

Wedge
I just love these wedge trainers, as seen on the likes of gorgeous mummies Miranda Kerr and Heidi Klum. They are a chic alternative to regular sneakers, giving a little bit of height whilst remaining super comfy. Victoria secret's beauty Alessandra Ambrosio lived in hers during her pregnancy.



Go for designer, from the likes of Isabel Marant, or if your budget is limited look to the high-street.

I love these by Carvella. A bit of girly sparkle in Black, or a nude variation - Perfect for spring.

LITTLE BU FOR LITTLE NAILS

29 Jan

Little-BU
Little A had her first beauty experience recently, on a family trip to Thailand. She was one very proud little toddler after experiencing her very first pedicure! I am not talking toddlers and tiaras, just a little girl that watched her mummy and daddy get a pedicure and wanted to feel grown up too. It was very cute!



If you have a little girl who likes to play dress up, then this new brand of children's nail colour is perfect! Little BU is non-toxic, water based and washes off - So perfect for children (and toddlers in A's case!)

Little BU was cr ... Read More

AMORALIA

Being pregnant, especially towards the end, often leaves us felling fat, bloated and far from glamorous. All you probably want to do is curl up in something comfy and hibernate. If you are having one of these days, what better way to relax than in something chic? Thanks to stunning maternity lingerie and night-wear brand, Amoralia, you can do exactly that.

You might be wondering where I am going with this. I can hear you thinking, 'lingerie and night-wear, what has this got to do with slobbing around?' Well, if you are having a fat day and don't really want to leave the house, l ... Read More

BABYZEN YOYO

25 Jan

YoYo
If you have a little one and like to travel, you will know how awkward it is trying to negotiate a buggy on top of all your luggage and baby bits.

My husband and I are often faced with the dilhema - Do we check in the Bugaboo, stored safely in it's travel case, then face lugging an active toddler around the airport? Or keep the buggy so A can sit nicely and be wheeled around, risking the damage that usually occurs in the planes hold. (We have traveled probably half a dozen times since A was born and the Bugaboo is still in one piece - but it is a lot more battered than it perh ... Read More

PETRA + LEOPARD

24 Jan

Petra Ecclestone
Millionairess Petra Ecclestone is approaching the end of her pregnancy and has finally decided to ditch the heals in favor of more sensible flats. Pictured here leaving Nobo, she accessorized her all black ensemble with some leopard print boots.



Why not steal her style with your own version of her leopard knee-highs, in the form of these wellingtons by Sherbert. OK, so they are not Jimmy Choo, like Petra's probably are and they are rubber, not leather, but they are perfect for the snow and will brighten up your day for sure.

BEATRIX POTTER FOR BABY GAP

24 Jan

BP baby gap
One of my favorite childhood authors, Beatrix Potter, has just launched an adorable Limited Edition collection for Baby Gap.

The cute Potter characters, along with their magical adventures, have inspired patterned dresses, motif knits and Peter Rabbit bodies.

There is a strong bunny theme running through the whole collection for both boys and girls, aged from 0-24 months.  A lot of the styles can be uni-sex and are really reasonably priced, which is fabulous news! Everyone loves a designer collaboration and it is great that this one is affordable.
