Funky Giraffe
Dribble bibs for dribbly little ones are essential, especially during teething! I was recently send a selection of stunning bandanna styles from Funky Giraffe to review.

If you have yet to discover Funky Giraffe I think the following might just tempt you, and no-doubt convert you to their brand. I love all of their styles and designs. Stripes and stars are super chic.

My daughter is not a great dribbler (I think it is more of a boy thing?) so I forwarded our samples to one of her friends, Jack. He is the perfect model and tester. Doesn't he look cute!?

I have recently discovered an extremely cute home-wares and gift site - DotComGiftshop. It immediately reminded me of Not On the Highstreet, but a lot more reasonably priced. It is now my first port of call when looking for house nic-nacs and unique gifts for loved ones. There are some great baby gifts too.

If you have yet to shop the site I really recommend it. In the meantime I have a lovely little guest blog from them. There is lots of shopping advice and an insight into the tempting treats they have on offer for the little munchkins in your life.

This cold weather really takes it's toll on your skin. I always find that with the cold temperatures comes dryness, and that dull skin tone that makes you look far from perky. A nice sumptuous body lotion is the perfect answer. One of my favorite beauty brands - L'occitane - has just the one.

Shea Honey Mom balm is specifically formulated for mums and mums-to-be. There are no hidden nasties and all ingredients are natural and rich - It is 100% safe to use with a baby on board.

Luxurious Organic Shea Butter blended with coconut and sunflower oil is lightly fragra ... Read More

This is one of the latest images from Givenchy's SS13 campaign and I just love it.

Riccardo Tisci is renowned for creating controversial images - think that Rottweiler T-shirt. He likes to get people talking and create pictures that we have not seen before. His latest campaign is no exception.

Gorgeous model mum Mariacarla Boscono is photographed with her own baby daughter. The image to me represents the epitome of motherhood- strength, vulnerability, love and beauty.

A fabulous picture I think you will agree. I cannot ... Read More

SALE PICKS – 09.01.13

Here are some of my favorite maternity sale picks!

Isabella Oliver's easy leggings are a must have. You can wear regular leggings during pregnancy, but I found they do not have the necessary stretch - They just go baggy and mis-shaped. After a few wears you resemble Nora Batty!

My favorite Isabella Oliver dress - The Isla Stripe, is now in the sale too! Cut a chic silhouette in Caramel and Black.

The perfect cover up, bump or not. This stylish knit poncho by Joseph is divine.
