Sale season is definitely coming to an end. I keep popping back to see if there is anything I might be missing, but as predicted it's just the dregs. Those silly sale regrets. Things you wouldn't even look twice at if they were full price. So, forget the sales and concentrate on the new season I say. Now is the time to invest in those SS must-haves before it's too late.

On my wish list. (From a purely fashion perspective, maternity, babies and children aside). Top of the list - a pair of slides.

The past few days have been spent mostly snuggled up under a blanket in front of the fire, both A and I have caught this bug that seems to be going around. Snoozing and feeling sorry for myself aside, I have also had time on my hands with an uncharacteristic sleeping babe allowing for some serious internet action.

I think this 'nesting stage' has fuelled my current obsession with all things baby and kids, and as a result I have come across some really cool things that I feel I need in my life (Or should I say in the life of my little one and one-to-be.) The only bummer being I s ... Read More

She is probably my favourite style-wise at the moment, Gwen Stafani always look so cool and she does not let that bump get in her way.

I love everything about this latest look, it's just my kinda thing. (Minus those killer heels, my pelvis no longer allows for a stiletto.) I am now on the hunt for a pair of chic print (maternity) trousers, how fabulous.

Get the look:

I don't know about you but this week has been so depressing - Thank you January, rain, grey and cold. At times like this anything to add a bit of shine into ones day is much appreciated. So, hello new-season metallics.

A 34 week bump paired with a high-shine dress or billowing sequin top is perhaps not the best idea for a flattering silhouette, but thanks to all those glittering accessories one can still get in on the action. And if I am honest with such a statement trend I think it's always better to inject that look with an accessory - A silv ... Read More

I was recently interviewed by The Doctor and Daughter, an online site dedicated to all things pregnancy and birth. What you need to know and what to expect before, during, and after pregnancy, brought to you by a leading consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist with over 40 years experience, and his eldest daughter, mother of two. A pretty good combination I think?

The Doctor and Daughter is a great place to be if you are an expectant new mum (or dad) and want an honest and real insight into pregnancy that is something other than Babycentre.

With under six weeks to go I am definitely at that 'nesting' stage. I have (although I said I wouldn't) purchased several new first outfits, the sales are just too tempting. And I am already starting to sort and wash all those tiny baby grows and cardi's in preparation. I cannot wait to get the nursery finished now either. I was going to leave it as-is, painted in Farrow and Ball's blackened, which is a lovely soft grey. But I am now thinking I would like to wallpaper one wall, in either a star or stripe. Thanks to Pinterest I have lots of ideas.

When it comes to thinki ... Read More

A perfect combination of statement and style. Madderson London's Darcy Dress, my new favorite piece from the current collection.

I am not usually one to go for a print, not really sure why, I just always seems to pick something in a block colour. After slipping on the ML Darcy shift however, I think I have been converted. There is just something about this elegant combination of black and beige that works. Even with an expanding (32 week) baby bump, that initial fear of a print adding pounds and looking frumpy was sent right to the back of my mind.  I am not sure how, ... Read More

Le Labo, my new favourite perfume.

Made-to-order heavenly scents created by New York perfume laboratory Le Labo are simply delicious. Choose your smell, wait whilst it is lovingly formulated by hand and then presented to you in a simplistic signature bottle, dated and named. Each of their ten scents are totally unique but equally as divine. It's pretty hard to choose a favourite, but I think it may have to be either Santal or Patchouli. Bergamote is gorgeous too!

Le Labo is not your average mass produced perfume, so you can't get your hands on a bottle just like t ... Read More

On my days off I like to keep it simple, and comfy. My go-to piece right now happens to be a Donna Karen knitted poncho I purchased a few season ago, it just seems to go with anything, and most importantly works with that bump. Skinny jeans, a slouchy jumper dress or (dare I say it) leggings are all perfect partners.

With this in mind I have been on the look out for another similar style, just to add a bit of variety on those off-duty days. As said Donna Karen piece has proved, it should become another wardrobe staple that will remain season after season, pregnant or not.

I don't know about you but winter always plays havoc with my skin. Being nearly 8 months pregnant I have a little hormonal help on my side (that third trimester glow is peeking through) but cold weather and central heating are not the best combination for anyone's skin. Lack of sunshine does not help either. Usually about this time of year we are jetting off somewhere exotic, no such luck. How I am missing my winter sun.

On a more positive note there is help at hand, thanks to some great new skincare discoveries. (And those old favorites - Estee Lauder's advanced night repair is ... Read More
