As an Elemis fan I love receiving their latest goodies. From my hospital bag to my bathroom cabinet Elemis is a main presence, and these new Limited Edition Cellular recovery Skin Bliss Capsules have just taken over as the favorite. I am 100% in love with this product. I would never usually look twice at 'skin capsules' they always seemed to fussy. but after testing them out there is literally no going back.

As a set of two, Rose for day and Lavender by night, you simply apply one capsule pre-moisturise. (Squeeze out the oil and rub in your pa ... Read More

Since I began Mumzynot I have been introduced to so many wonderful new brands. One such brand is Anna Soderstrom. Beautifully designed and crafted Scottish cashmere, for both mother and baby.

Anna Soderstrom is made exclusively in London using the most delicate hand and machine knitting techniques with Swedish accents in every creation. Each product is totally unique and utterly desirable. Luxury Scottish cashmere scarves and hats in the chicest of greys are their signature. The newborn blanket and hat set, Ynski,  is to die for. I was privileged enough to receive my v ... Read More

You may have been wondering seeing as I have been a little quite these last few days? Well I am so happy to finally announce that our (second) beautiful baby girl arrived on Sunday afternoon, just one day past my due date. Introducing Evelyn Rose. She is just amazing and we are in love all over again.

It's day three and the lack of sleep, hormones all over the place and general adjustment that come with a newborn are starting to kick in. But every time I look at that beautiful bundle I know it is worth every second. And I plan on savouring it for as long as possible.

I will keep this short and sweet. Sometimes not too many words are required and it's best to just see for yourself.

Madderson London have recently launched their new Spring Summer maternity collection and as expected it's divine. Luxury, chic and ever-stylish, you will find nothing average about these new season looks. Old favourites are re-worked in summer hues (The Amelie in powder blue and gold French Tweed really stands out) as-well as some new editions that I just love. Hello Serena in Olive.

Basically it's one not to be missed. And please note, ... Read More

My official due date is now just two days away. The wait is on. It could however be another two weeks (!) so I am trying to keep busy in the hope that time does not drag...

Yesterday I heading into London for some beauty treatments with London Mother's Club at the Cowshed Spa in Selfridges. It was so nice to be treated to a little bit of pampering. My pedicure  included an extremely relaxing neck, shoulder and head massage, as well as a foot and leg massage. Cowshed offer a whole range of treatments as well as specifically tailored mum-to-be packages, so well worth a v ... Read More

With just one week to go, and a day of shooting children's fashion ahead, I opted for the Saturday dress. Madderson London's go-to, weekend-style-staple. And how exciting to be able to show off a little bit of leg, thanks to the cheeky slit detail of this maternity maxi.

Who say's you can't remain stylish right up until the end? A pair of faithful sneakers and oversized cardigan finish the look. I love this long-line style from COS, who offer some great 'non-maternity' maternity pieces btw. And I'm always pulling on those Peter Pilloto print flats right now. (You might have noti ...

You know I am a big fan of Isabella Oliver maternity. Well I also love their sister brand, Baukjen, and I am not quite sure why I have waited so long to tell you...

Effortlessly chic, Baukjen is all about wardrobe staples - A great pair of jeans, jersey T, statement jacket and wear-with-all knit, as well as some great leather pieces. Be it a laid back weekend look, or something a little more style-savy, there are more than a few things I would like to add to my post-baby wardrobe right now. (One week to go!)

What's on my wishlist this Spring Summer?

Although I am not a girly girl, this season I am finding myself drawn to some of those pastel pieces. A little bit of candy pink teamed with white or grey is not too girly, right? I am also in love with the sporty-shoe-sandal-thing. Not everyone's cup of tea, but there is something a little bit cool about a Slide. Step up Isabel Marant. Zara also have a couple of quirky styles, for those of you that are still un-decided and want something a little more throw-away.

An over-sized coat in cream is a must (Hello Ga ... Read More

Our little lullaby
If you love cool and quirky designs for your little one, Latte Mama is your one-stop shop. Featuring some of the most divine brands, from Mini Rodini to Little Four Clothing, and most recently (and most excitingly for me) Our Little Lullaby. Think gorillas, dragonflys, bulls and retro patterns, all printed onto 100% organic, soft and luxurious cotton leggings.

The Latte Mama motto - Don't let your mama cramp you style. I couldn't agree more. Hurry whilse stocks last, I have a feeling this brand is going to fly.

Doutzen Kroes,  Delphine Manivet
Last night was Oscars night and today everyone has been buzzing. Who won what? And most importantly, who wore what?! This year I think Angelina Jolie stole the show in Ellie Saab Couture - but I do have soft spot for her. She is just so beautiful and elegant.

This year the red carpet was also excitingly awash with bumps. Olivia Wilde, Kerry Washington, Elsa Pataky, Kristin Cavallari, Doutzen Kroes and Emma Hemming all stunned in figure-flattering silohettes. For me though I think it was the black gown that stole the show. (Kristin was also fabulous in contrasting white ... Read More
