A YELLOW MAC

30 Jun

Thank's for the coat AliOli Kids. Love it.
Summer in England unfortunately does not mean cover-ups become redundant. For however many days the sun shines, rain is usually around the corner. Such English summers therefore require a weather appropriate coat. For the little ones  a Yellow hooded Mac by Ali Oli kids is the perfect choice.

A colour-pop style statement, waterproof, wash-down and wear-with-all. Chloe also comes with chic breton striped lining - Contrast lining makes a style statement whatever your age. Also comes in white.

Get yours here. But you better be quick as it's a best seller. (There is ... Read More

BATH TIME SNUGGLES

24 Jun

Evelyn loves the bath. We didn't follow the 'guidelines' of waiting until she was a week or two old, my theory is get them used to it from the beginning. (After a few days.) There is nothing worse than a little one that hates to bath. Both my girls love the water and this is the only real routine we stick too. (I am 100% anti Gina Ford,) A relaxing warm bubble bath is shortly followed by bed.

With babies in mind a hooded bath towel is a must-have. It just makes life easier. Newborns feel the cold and after a warm bubbly bath they like to snuggle. The Natures Purest robe ... Read More

Or in this case not so much...Would rather be back in Italy right now. Although thank you Mr. Sunshine for a very warm welcome home.

Sorry for my lack of posts over the last ten days. I had every intention to keep things going whilst away, but as is always the case I was too busy having fun. (You can always keep up with me on Instagram though.) Italy for us is like a home from home. A was there at just nine weeks old and this year was Evelyn's début at twelve weeks. Just like her sister she was a star. If you can, I think it's always best to get babies used to travelling from a ... Read More

IN PIG MATERNITY

Cara-del
I was introduced to In Pig a while ago then somehow they flew off my radar. Not any more, thanks to the help of Cara Delevinge.

In Pig is a vintage inspired maternity wear brand brought to us by the cousin of Cara Delevinge. A small capsule collection consisting of cute dungarees and seersucker dresses all designed perfectly to work with or without a bump. As modelled recently by Cara herself, (who is not pregnant by the way!) this is a brand that's definitely flying high in the world of maternity fashion. Just a few key wardrobe staples is all you need during pregnanc ... Read More

NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY WITH EMANUELA REDASCHI

5 Jun

20140409-Evelyn-62
About a month ago I was offered a newborn shoot with Clapham based photographer Emanuela Redaschi. (I met her at a London Mother's event and she was keen for me to review her services.) Of course I happily accepted. When A was born we did a family shoot for Baby Surrey magazine and got some really gorgeous images, so I was honoured to be in a similar position second time around.

A professional shoot is something I 100% recommend on the arrival of a new baby. It's the perfect excuse to get everyone together, no arguments, no fuss, to create some treasured professional photographs ... Read More

THE ALL IN ONE

This weekend was another taster to the hopeful Summer sunshine that we are all longing to last more than one or two days. With temperatures just about warm enough for bare legs I looked to my more summery wardrobe pieces. The MiH Jeans boiler suit is one of my favourite everyday denim staples and I was pleased to be able to bring it out of hibernation. This is such a versatile piece that can be thrown on with not much thought at all. (My kind of clothing right now.) The zip front is also perfect for breastfeeding.

Team with a sneaker for day-time-cool and add a chunky knit when ... Read More
