Every winter tweed, checks and herringbone seems to make a come-back and this season is no exception. When the likes of Dolce and Gabbana, Dries Van Norten and Lanvin all feature designs using haberdashery fabrics on their AW13 catwalks, you know the trend will filter through to the highstreet in no time.

After a quick reckie of what's new in-store I have spotted a number of cute designs that follow this form. All of which are perfect additions to your wardrobe and can, of course, be worn with a bump - if you are currently that way inclined.

Luisana Lopilato looked absolutely stunning this week as she was pictured on her way to a friends wedding with husband Michael Buble. Dressed in a chic blue maxi dress that highlighted her incredible pregnancy figure, Luisana shows just how to dress a bump in style. She wore her hair down in loose waves and kept accessories simple with a matching blue box clutch and stud earrings. Unbelievably Luisana is approaching the final week of her pregnancy!

If you have an up-coming wedding why not steal Luisana's style with this stylish blue maxi from Isabella Oliver. A f ... Read More

mango kids
You may have heard? Mango have recently launched a kids range. Well as expected it's super-cool. A street-chic collection for both boys and girls from ages 3-12, with stylish footwear and accessories to match.

This is not a collection for the girly-girl o ... Read More

In our house my husband is the chef. He is a real foodie and when it comes to grown-up suppers he likes nothing more than to plan the evenings meal, look for recipes and food inspiration online and subsequently send me the shopping list. He is a really good cook and could easily have his own restaurant. My only complaint is that sometimes, after a difficult day, the last thing I want to do is hit the supermarket (toddler in tow) looking for random ingredients!  I am also not keen on my title when he is in the kitchen -  'pot wash' ! Why is it than men are the messiest cooks?  Here ... Read More

I introduced you the the Babyzen YOYO a while back and at the time was keen to get my hands on one to test-drive. We travel a lot with A, both long and short haul and the YOYO looked like just the perfect stroller for travelling. Well good news, on our last trip to Italy this month I was lucky enough to get one sent over to sample.

I loved it. Infact the YOYO went beyond my expectations. Not only is it lightweight, compact and comfortable for A, but it's uber-stylish. It's smooth and sleek both in looks and manoeuvrability whilst still being able to fold (one handed) down to the ... Read More

asos boyfriend t shirt
When I was pregnant comfort was key, but it was also important to retain my sense of style. One of my favorite everyday looks was what I would describe as boyfriend-chic. Loose sweaters, oversized tops and comfy jogger-style pants or soft jersey trousers. When it came to dresses I was more at home in t-shirt or jumper styles. I also had my favorite pair of maternity jeans and a wear-with-everything knit poncho. For me there was no room for fussy prints or fancy materials (except on special occasions when a statement piece was required).

With this in mind I would like to draw you ... Read More
