THE TARTAN SNEAKER

14 Jan

celine-tartan-sneaker
The tartan sneaker, a simple, chic, slip-on, brought to you last fall by Celine and lusted after by myself ever since. Unfortunately said pair were a sell-out (let me know if you find where I can still purchase?! I am thinking these would be perfect for post-baby walking in style.) but you can now buy into the trend once again thanks to the high street (here) and at a fraction of the cost. I would hurry up though as these too are flying fast.

I love with a bare leg, but seeing as we are still in the throws of winter a leather pant and chunky sweater will have to do. Shall I?

BEDROOM DETAILS

So here it is, as promised in my resolutions post, the first interiors blog of 2014.

After recently finishing a year long stint of renovations, I'm talking new roof, windows, rendering, knocking down walls, re-building, re-plastering, bathrooms, painting, decorating and finally furnishing (all whilst living under said same roof, pregnant and with a toddler ) I like to think I know a little bit about interiors and design.

Pinterest is the best place to be when looking for interior style and design inspiration. When we began our house project I sta ... Read More

THE EVER-CHIC CAMILLA SHIFT

8 Jan

Look three for my Madderson London style diary, featuring the Camilla shift dress. A chic everyday style statement that is just as stunning after dark.

I have been wearing this look a lot over the festive period, it's just so comfortable and effortless. At 30 weeks effortless when getting dressed is mandatory. Made from luxurious double-knit Italian jersey, with exquisite gold trim detailing, the Camilla Shift is more than just your regular maternity LBD. It's also surprisingly warm so perfect for these cold days we have been having. As with all ML pieces this is a styl ... Read More

BUNDLE ME

7 Jan

IMG_20131210_171330
A necessary accessory for winter is a soft and cosey footmuff of some sort for your stroller, to keep your little one warm. Blankets, forget it, they get kicked off in no time. (Well by A anyway.) Last winter I invested in a sand footmuff to match my Bugaboo Cameleon, this year I have been sent a JJ Cole Bundle me. In chic grey with beige sheepskin interior. Little A has never been more snugly (or stylish) whilst out and about.

My only qualm, which I must mention, is that the sheepskin is a pain to keep clean, especially with this weather we have been having. But, it wa ... Read More

RESOLUTIONS

6 Jan

be-in-love-with-your-life
I have been a little slack with my blog posts over the Christmas period. But I figure like me, you guys have all been enjoying your time off, over-indulging and relaxing, and so probably haven't had time to even notice (or miss me)...?

Sadly it's now all over for another year. But with the start of 2014, instead of feeling blue, January blues as they say, I have decided to see this new year as a positive new start. After all those January Blues are  just a frame of mind. So that's my resolution number 1 - always remain positive, focus forward and never look b ... Read More

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

1 Jan

NYE
Happy 2014! Lat night was the first time ever (as an adult) we have spent New Years eve at home, doing nothing, and it was actually really nice. We sat up watching Graham Norton then snuggled in bed for Big Ben and the fireworks. Weren't they spectacular?! And how lovely, we were asleep by 12.15 and did not wake up until 9.30 the next morning. That's a pretty good start to 2014. Little A was a star and let us have a much needed lie-in. She obviously needed one too.

I hope you all had a fabulous evening, whatever you were up to, and may this new year bring you love, laug ... Read More

SO FAR…

28 Dec

I have finally purchased the first few pieces for number 2. I always said I would wait for the sales so am pleased I managed to resist until now. At just over seven months nesting has already kicked in. (Seems earlier this time?) My morning was spent sorting through A's old newborn clothes and realising that actually I do need some additions. She was a summer baby, this one will arrive at the beginning of March. It might be snowing - I have nothing warm, or cosey.

So, you might have seen on my Instagram, This afternoon I invested in two super cute knitted pieces from St ... Read More

MY WEEK (CHRISTMAS WEEK)

27 Dec

PhotoGrid_1388177225714
Happy Christmas! This last week has been manic. On top of various events and Christmas parties we have been super busy preparing the house for Christmas day. (Builders were out on the 21st and carpets went down just a few days before. So in a word, hectic!)

This year we hosted, with both families! It was a lovely day and so nice to be able to celebrate all together at home, but I must admit I didn't relax as much as I usually would. I really don't know how anyone can host Christmas on their own?! I am so lucky to have a 'chef' husband, 'sous chef' brother-in-la ... Read More

TOO GOOD TO BE MISSED

20 Dec

Chanel-Vintage
I know it's Christmas and a time for giving, but the Matches sale is just too good to be missed. With up to 50% off some of the most coveted style items, it really is hard not to get carried away. Isabel Marant wedge sneakers, Gianvito Rossi pumps, Sharouk jewels, Chanel bags and too many fabulous clothes to mention specifics, I could happily re-stock my entire wardrobe. Luckily I am a little more disciplined than you might think and will just stick to the classic must-haves. Would I buy it full price? Or those pieces I have been lusting after since they first hit stores (Isa ... Read More

THE SHOW-STOPPER

18 Dec

IMG_20131217_114354
Last weekend I attended a black tie event at Chelsea's Hurlingham Club. Dressing for such occasions can be pretty stressful with a seven month baby bump, lets face it you don't feel your best. I certainly don't anyway, and in all honesty the last thing I wanted to do was go to a black tie dinner. What was I going to wear? Thankfully my partnership with Madderson London came into play, and brings me to the second look for my style diary. They have just the dress for red carpet glamour.

The Juno dress, the Madderson 'show stopper'. A silk printed style-statement, with exquisite pe ... Read More
