This past week has been super-hectic, but not actually that exciting. I have mostly been working and in every spare moment frantically trying to tidy and clean the house (in between looking after a recently super-charged toddler, is this a faze?!).We are on the final push to get everything finished in time for Christmas. Carpets fitters are coming on the 20th of December so all painting, electrics, fixtures and fittings need to be finished. The fine film of dust that seems to be covering every surface must also be eradicated. This is my on-going battle!

Work and renovations aside, highlights of the week have been as follows:

A mid-week visit to Bicester. My favorite place to shop. I managed to get several Christmas gifts sorted, very unusual for me to be so organised with Christmas shopping.

New goodies from Kate Thomas Maternity and the divine French brand Envie De Fraise. I love the navy wrap dress from KT (as pictured) it’s just so easy to throw on and works perfectly for the office.  They also sent a Spot-print dress which reminds of the one Kate Middleton wore. In-fact I could picture her wearing either of these styles during her pregnancy.

Envie De Fraise has just launched in the UK and I was lucky enough to be sent a really cool dungarees, black pants with leather detailing and a leather-sleeve knit dress in grey (as pictured), all from their current collection. This brand really remind me of Hatch. I love their laid back styling and can see myself investing in a few more pieces before too long.

An Elemis aromatherapy candle also landed on my desk. It is now sitting on my new en-suite bathroom cabinet, and smells just delicious. Delivered in a chic ribbon box, this would make a lovely Christmas gift.

Finally I am excited to announce an up-coming collaboration with Madderson London that we finalized just the other day. A super-chic and ultra-luxe maternity label that has also recently launched ready-to-wear. (They use the same pattern cutters and the same factory as Victoria Beckham.) Watch this space.

Also, be sure to look out for my next Blossom Mother and Child guest edit, out tomorrow. This week it’s my Christmas Gift guide.
