30 Apr

As you may have noticed Mumzynot has been inaccessible for the last few days, thanks to an evil scammer! Ancient Holding, AKA Wendy Webbe, you know who you are....May karma get you back one day.

After much sweat and tears I have finally sorted out the problem and Mumzynot is back up and running. Phew.

Unfortunately however, I have had to change my domain name (website address) and email address. The blog is now located at www.Mumzynot.com (basically the same as before, just minus the hyphen) and my new email address is jessica@mumzynot.com (again, minus the hyph ... Read More

CHEEKY MONKEYS KIDS

23 Apr

Emile-et-Rose1
I love being introduced to new children's boutiques. It's always nice to discover alternatives to my regular - Baby Gap, Zara Kids, Alex and Alexa (just some of my favorites when I am looking to update A's wardrobe). Wherever possible it is always nice to support independents, especially when they offer such a wide range of brands and designers as Cheeky Monkeys Kids!

I don't know about you but when I am shopping online for A, I like to be able to purchase a number of different items all from one place. It avoids more than one delivery fee and also gives me more of a real-life ... Read More

THE DENIM EDIT

22 Apr

7-for-all-mankind
Every girl needs a bit of denim in their closet. This season why not add some pop-colour, floral or print to your collection?

A Dungarees is a must-have and if you dare - double denim can look ultra-chic. (Just make sure you mix pale denim with dark, to avoid a fashion faux-pas!). Here are my picks, both maternity and ready-to-wear.

Happy Shopping,

Love,

Jess

Faith Connection. £81



Topshop Maternity. £38

Bugaboo AW
You may well have heard about the latest Bugaboo designer collaboration? If not then you read it here first......From May 2013 Bugaboo and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, start their multi-year creative collaboration with the spring launch of Warhol-inspired pushchair accessories! Aren't these just so cool!?





The first prints to be launched (as pictured) are the Flowers collection and the Cars collection. Both ultra-chic and both I love. For me, this is perhaps the trendiest of the Bugaboo collaborations yet? Aswell as featuring art ... Read More

JESSICA SIMPSON

Jessica-Simpson
Jessica Simpson choose black to wear to a friends wedding this week. At nine months pregnant she looked blooming, teaming her flowing wrap maxi with wedge sandals and a sequin clutch.



Black is not often the colour of choice to wear as a wedding guest, however if you team it with the right accessories I think it can look ultra chic. Monochrome is a big trend this season so why not opt for a white clutch and shoe to bring your look up to date. I love this black maternity maxi from ASOS - The chiffon overlay and one shoulder style make it super-flirty and the thigh- ... Read More

NURTURING MUMS

17 Apr

nurturing mums
Having a baby, as we all know, can be somewhat isolating and lonely, especially if you don't have a good support network of friends and family. With this in mind I would like to introduce you to Nurturing mums.

Nurturing mums was founded by two North London mums that wanted to offer post natal care and a much needed support system for like-minded new mummies. Elise Mendelle and Gemma Frenchman both found themselves longing for practical on-tap advice when their babies were born, but didn't know where to turn.  Having experienced conflicting opinions, short paternity leave, a f ...

Pregnancy is no better time to indulge and pamper. so why not  top up your bathroom cabinet with some mum-to-be beauty must-haves. I used every one of these products during my pregnancy, so each one is a personal recommendation.

For stretchmark prevention, Emily Evans mother and Bio Oil, night and day. I used Bio Oil at night after a bath and Emily's cream in the mornings, for more lustrous moisturisation. It is vital to keep your skin nourished and supple.





For indulgent bubble baths and scented candles, look to Abahana. All th ... Read More

DUNGAREES

Dungarees
A Dungarees has got to be the ultimate mummy-style?! I would have loved to wear this look when I was pregnant, I just couldn't find a suitable maternity pair to fit my growing bump.

Now, thanks to Topshop maternity, you can go all out retro-chic mum-to-be.

Team your dungarees with a basic T-shirt and converse for every-day wear. When the weather hots up create a turn-up and switch to your favorite thongs.

If you are feeling adventurous, why not  add a  heel and leather jacket to wear after-dark? ... Read More

Chic-mum of two Alessandra Ambrosio was celebrating her 32nd birthday on Wednesday night. The Brazilian beauty was pictured with her fiance looking angelic in a white bodycon mini dress that showed of her model figure to perfection. It's hard to believe she gave birth to her second child just two moths ago!

ARM CANDY

11 Apr

Ice-watch-Orange
Playing with accessories is a great way to update your look. (There are no restrictions with a bump either!) This season is all about statement jewels and vibrant colour, so why not invest in some new arm candy!? One great place to start is with a chic new timepiece.

I myself am looking for a new watch, something bold and a bit flirty for the new season that I can wear everyday. There are so many different styles and colours to choose from, I am finding it really hard to pick a favorite! So far I have narrowed it down to the following:
