PAY-DAY TREATS

30 Aug

Faux-leather
Some shopping inspiration, just in time for pay-day. We are all allowed a little treat (or two) once a month, right?

A styling tip: Shop for looks rather than individual items. I always find that those spur-buys result in unworn clothes with nothing that goes with.

Mango, Faux-leather sleeve detail knit cardigan, £59.99



Mango, loose fit T-shirt, £14.99



 

Mango, Eagles-print trousers, £34.99 (With elasticated, drawstring waist.)



Topshop, relaxed cupro ... Read More

For those of you that refuse to give in to a branded baby bag. Snap it up here.

ANGEL’S FACE

28 Aug

angel
This season we have had five weddings, that's a lot of outfits to plan! For our most recent nuptials I was relieved to discover that (for A at-least) I need not worry, thanks to Angel's Face. Just the week before I was contacted by their PR and offered the choice of any colour or style from their utterly divine collection of Tutu's. Could there be a more perfect outfit for a little girl at a wedding?!

An Angel's Face tutu is not just any tutu. They are infact the UK's no.1 best selling pettitskirts and upon receiving ours, I chose a chic champagne and lace, I can see exactly why ... Read More

ZARA MINI

27 Aug

Zara-mini-4
Since I had A (over two years ago now) it had always been really tricky to find designer-led baby clothes at highstreet prices. If you love fashion and want to create a cute and stylish wardrobe for your little one you have to be prepared to spend.  I am talking Caramel Baby and Child, Bonpoint, Marie-Chantal, where just one item can cost up to £100. Don't get me wrong, I adore these brands, but unfortunately I just cannot not justify it. (More than one or two times.) Babies grow so quickly.

Thankfully, today things are a little different. Just like the highstreet is able to r ... Read More

McQUEEN

leather skirt
With an active toddler in tow, shopping trips these days are few and far between. When I do risk it, more often than not, it ends up in a full scale tantrum, on the floor kicking and screaming. A is just not into the whole shopping experience yet. (Give her time.) So for me that fashion-fix has to come from my laptop. It's definitely not the same experience but for now it will have to do.

With this in mind, one of my favorite online destinations has to be The Outnet. Linked to Net-a-Porter, another fave, The Outnet is what I would call their 'outlet store'. All the same designer ... Read More

FERGIE ROCKS BIKER-CHIC

22 Aug

Fergie
Attending the premiere of her husband's latest film, the heavily pregnant Fergie opted for biker-chic as she adorned her bump in studs and leather. This is perhaps not an obvious choice of attire for a premiere? It's certainly not your everyday maternity look, but Ferigie is clearly not one to follow the rules. There is certainly no arguing that she still looks pretty hot for someone approaching the end of her pregnancy.

Worn together this is not one of my favorite looks, but I love all the elements - You cannot beat a chic leather jacket and some leather/leather-look pants.

OEUF

oeuf be good
I just stumbled across this brand on Pinterest and I think you might like to be introduced. If you support sustainable, eco-friendly and fair trade, Oeuf  is just for you.

Not only is the Oeuf label environmentally aware, it's also ultra-stylish. An adorable range of baby and children's clothing, newborn essential and cute accessories, that you will simply not find on the highstreet. The new collection, just in time for winter, features heavily on gorgeous knitwear made from 100% Alpaca wool. (The bear jumper is a favorite!)  All knits are lovingly handmade by the women of Bol ... Read More

BLOOM AND BLOSSOM

19 Aug

Bloom-and-Blossom
The latest must-have maternity skincare range is from Bloom and Blossom. As well as offering the ultimate in mummy and baby pampering, Bloom and Blossom is the confirmed product of choice for the Duchess of Cambridge. Kate is now using the range as part of her post baby, body-beautiful routine. Worth a go then, no?

Personally I love the sound of the rejuvenating facial spritz . Great for your hospital bag or simply when you need a little pick-me-up. The mother to be gift set would also make a great baby shower gift.

I LOVE SHOES

16 Aug

London-sole-2
My latest treat to myself, new shoes. I also indulged in a pair for A. They were just too divine to resist.

Being a busy mum-on-the-go flats are usually the footwear of choice and my latest beauties are from London Sole. The 'Queen of Ballet Flats', Jane Winkworth, has just the most fabulous collection of footwear. After visiting her Kings Road store (Unintentionally, I was just passing by) I could not resist a new pair.  From pretty ballet flats to leopard print brogues there is a style for literally every occasion. I decided to go for something a little flirty and fun, to bri ... Read More
