The giving tree
Just a little something I wanted to share.... How cute is this book? The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. A must-have for your little ones library.

A and I love books and ones with a meaning are even more special.

Most of you (as did I) probably still associate UGG with 'those boots'? But there is exciting news.  UGG Australia have a fabulous collection of footwear for the Summer months as-well as the Winter. A pleasant surprise after shopping the website in search of a pair for myself and little A - A gift from their PR in return for a Mumzynot feature.

I must admit, initially, I was not that excited. As soon as I heard the word UGG (before I looked on their website) I immediately just thought, style-less boots, WAG-a-licious, Katie Price. However as soon as I logged on I was greeted w ... Read More

Halle Berry looks just sensational. At 43 she is pregnant with her second child but as you can see, she is taking it all in her stride.

Dressed in one for my favorite Isabella Oliver styles, the jersey ruched T-shirt dress, (I infact own this exact dress and wore it to death in my pregnancy) Halle is effortlessly cool. A prime example of how not to let pregnancy change your style.

Get your Jersey ruched T-shirt dress here.

(Also comes in navy, blue, red and grey. There is a cute floral version too, that I just love! Would be perfect for a summer eve ... Read More

When it comes to newborns and little ones, I feel (wherever possible) organic and natural is always best. Such a precious thing deserves nothing less.

There are some really cute baby brands that recognize this parental desire and one of my favorites has to be Natures Purest - They have such an adorable collection. From bathtime essentials to nursery collections all made from the finest, purist, 100% natural cotton.  It could not be softer or more snuggly!

I always think that when it comes to shopping, quality should always out-weight quantity and ... Read More

There is nothing like bright colour to cheer up an otherwise miserable rainy day. (Outside it looks more like the depths of Winter than fast-approaching June!)

Penelope Cruz jumped out at me this morning whilst I was reading the papers, pictured running errands in Madrid (lucky for her she is in the sunshine) wearing a striking red dress. Fast approaching the end of her pregnancy Penelope is not afraid to work some colour into her maternity style.

Red can be tricky to wear, especially with a burgeoning bump, but choosing the right style and shade can look really ... Read More

It's coming up to that time, potty training! A is two at the end of June and I feel she is definitely ready, the problem is, am I?!

In preparation I have been sent a potty. But not just any potty....A Disney Princess musical sounds potty! This is strictly one for the girls, although I can imagine a little boy would love it just as much. I wonder if they do one in Blue...

A now has her very own pink toilet, complete with magical chiming flush. As you can imagine she just loves it! At this stage it is just the novelty of sitting there and pulling the flush, but anyt ... Read More

You already know I am big fan of Monica Vinader. (An engraved Figi bracelet makes the perfect push-present.) So as you can imagine her new collection, Metallica, has got me very excited. What better treat than some new jewels?

I already own (and adore) several pieces from the MV collection but you can honestly, not ever, have enough. Her designs are simple, elegant and chic. They look ultra stylish stacked. For me, Christmas's and Birthdays are tied up for years to come.....

A girl can never have too much sparkle or shine and with Monica Vinader there is no limit. ... Read More

It was only a matter of time before Kate Middleton decided to dress the royal bump in one of her favorites, Emilia Wickstead.

Pictured today at the Queens annual tea party, she choose a bespoke Marella coat from the British designers collection - A stunning Pea Coat in canary yellow silk, just beautiful and perfectly fitting for such an occasion. (Accessorized with those favorite nude heels and matching clutch of course.)

Shop Emilia Wickstead here and get your own Marella coat before they are all gone!

Perfect for a wedding or su ... Read More

J Crew baby
I know it's grey and miserable out there, but I am still optimistic that Summer is just around the corner...So in anticipation I have been looking for some new additions for A's summer wardrobe. (She will need summer holiday clothes, if nothing else!)  One if my favorite brands, for myself and for A, is J Crew, and this seasons collection for little-ones does not disappoint.

J Crew is fabulous when it comes to casual classics. Think simple yet stylish designs, offered in the softest cottons and cashmere, this season incorporating cool prints and candy colours. Spots, stripes ... Read More

This is such a cute idea that I was introduced to a few weeks ago by one of the PR companies I work with. Jazz for Babies. A really loves music, of all genres, so I knew straight away we had to have some sample CD's to listen to.

They say that playing music to a bump is a great way to sooth and comfort. When your baby is born they will recognise the sounds heard from the womb and instantly be settled. I can really see how this would work.  In a similar way to white noise i'm guessing..... (which 100% worked a treat for us when A was a new born). I didn't play music to A specifi ... Read More
