Pictured on a play date with fellow celebrity tot, Brooks (mummy Molly Simms), the mini-fashionista Harper Beckham was seen rocking a pair Dr. Martens. Back in the 80's DM's were the footwear of choice for the style conscious and I am predicting a come-back.

There's no denying they do look pretty cool. Harper Seven, biker-chic, teamed hers with a pretty pastel shirt-dress. Love this look.

I am already planning an outfit steal for my own little A. The question is which style to go for? What do you think? (Available in baby, infant and adult sizes.)

Emily MacDonagh debuted her growing baby-bump this week accompanying baby-daddy, Peter Andre, to the TV choice awards.

Emily showed her maternity style in a prom-style tutu dress which highlighted her new figure and killer legs. I am not a big fan of this backless number (I think it's the high-neck) but I love the shoes! A real steal at just. £27.99 from New Look. I would style my pair with a leather skirt-white-shirt-blazer combo. Snap yours up here before they sell out.

With pregnancy number two I have already planned not to go mad with my purchases. First off, I pretty much have everything I need already and secondly, I now know from experience that you really don't need half the things you may have read about. (What you want and what you need are two very different things. My husband likes to tell me this on a regular basis.)

One thing I do strongly recommend however is a swinging baby chair. Something comfy and safe that will rock and comfort, giving you some much needed hands free. If you are lucky it might even send littl ... Read More

Derek Lam NYFW SS14
I might be a mum but that doesn't mean I'm not interested in fashion (the same probably goes for you, if you are a follower of Mumzynot) So one of my current favourite past times is catching up online with all the latest from NYFW, currently in full swing. My sister in law is actually there as we speak following all the shows for Net-a-Porter, so I get all the insider gossip too.

Highlights so far have to be Tibi, Victoria Beckham, Alexander Wang and Derek Lam. Loose structure, monochrome, leather and silk are all currently top of my list for SS14. I might steer clear of the cro ... Read More

It's a boring Friday night in (We are preparing for a wedding tomorrow which means I need to make sure i'm rested) and the football is on, so I am doing a spot of virtual shopping. Nothing else for it.

Instantly love this, the perfect leather dress by Iris and Ink. (I have been looking for the one for ages.) Perhaps not the most suitable maternity attire but definitely motivation to get back to pre-pregnancy shape after #2 arrives. Think I might just get it so I have something to work towards....I quite like those blue boots too.

Andrea Korr, 39,  cuts a chic figure as she is spotted in black lace whilst running errands with her husband this week. The Irish singer accessorized her look with all-black, including an on-trend oversized tote. Her neat baby bump accentuated by a matching waisted-belt.

I like this look - simple, elegant and easy to wear. Black lace is an AW wardrobe staple, a great investment piece that can be dressed up or down. Team with black tights and a pointy heel for evening glamour or bare legs and flats for daytime elegance.

Butter London, Cuppa £12
This seasons hottest nail colour doesn't scream look at me, but pale and neutral nails can still make a statement.

Here is my pick of favourite colours for chic-mums and their mini-me's. (If you are pregnant or looking for your little one I recommend both Butter London and Little BU. Both brands are non-toxic and 100% safe to use.)

Love, Jess x

As a beauty obsessive I like to keep in the loop when it comes to the latest new products - whether it be a miracle face cream, hot new nail colour or must-have hair treatment. Just a few days ago Elemis launched an exciting new range that I feel is worthy of a Mumzynot mention: The Pro-Intense Lift Effect System. A pioneering new range of firming and lifting creams that help to improve the skins tone and elasticity.

As a busy mum to an energetic toddler and now in the second trimester of pregnancy number two, a strict beauty regime has never been more important. There is no ti ... Read More

You might have already guessed, seen a few hints and mentions on my facebook and Twitter? #2 is on the way! As you can imagine we are all super-excited and I'm so relieved to finally be able to make the news official. (I am hopeless at keeping secrets.) A little brother or sister for A. If he/she is half as beautiful, charismatic, clever, loving, funny, caring (the list is endless) we will be more than blessed.

I am not one to obsess over being pregnant so you won't find much changes from my daily posts, they will just perhaps become a little more relevant, especially when we a ... Read More

As recommended by my midwife friend, I'd like to introduce you to the Cocoonababy nest.

Pioneered in France by a leading group of obstetricians, the Cocoonababy nest is described as 'an ergonomic cocoon which prepositions your baby in the semi-fetal position as adopted in the mother's tummy.'  It was originally developed for premature babies but it's success in soothing and comforting, as well as promoting healthy sleep patterns, has been recognized as beneficial for all newborns.

As well as mimicking life inside the womb making your little one as comfortable an ... Read More
