MANGO KIDS

8 Aug

mango kids
You may have heard? Mango have recently launched a kids range. Well as expected it's super-cool. A street-chic collection for both boys and girls from ages 3-12, with stylish footwear and accessories to match.

The latest looks from the Spanish label are right up my street when it comes to children's everyday style. Autumnal hues of mustard, Khaki and burgandy are the main focus. With checks, stripes and polka dots adorned on cute collared dresses, 100% cotton shirts and sweaters. Chord, chino, denim and leather are also in abundance. This is not a collection for the girly-girl o ... Read More

CHEF MUMZYNOT

7 Aug

cook5
In our house my husband is the chef. He is a real foodie and when it comes to grown-up suppers he likes nothing more than to plan the evenings meal, look for recipes and food inspiration online and subsequently send me the shopping list. He is a really good cook and could easily have his own restaurant. My only complaint is that sometimes, after a difficult day, the last thing I want to do is hit the supermarket (toddler in tow) looking for random ingredients!  I am also not keen on my title when he is in the kitchen -  'pot wash' ! Why is it than men are the messiest cooks?  Here ... Read More

Say hello to Dreamtone by Lancome - A seaweed facial that is said to be the ultimate in hydration and the latest must-have treatment for skin pigmentation. Kate Middleton is reported to be a big fan. She had allegedly been using the product as part of her post-baby skincare regime. Sounds like a beautiful-mummy-must-have then?!

Deamtone is available in three made-to-measure formulas, depending on your skin type, developed specifically for each pigmentation profile. The triple action formula has been seven years in the making and is generating a real buzz amongst press and the be ... Read More

A MUST-HAVE

2 Aug

yoyo
I introduced you the the Babyzen YOYO a while back and at the time was keen to get my hands on one to test-drive. We travel a lot with A, both long and short haul and the YOYO looked like just the perfect stroller for travelling. Well good news, on our last trip to Italy this month I was lucky enough to get one sent over to sample.

I loved it. Infact the YOYO went beyond my expectations. Not only is it lightweight, compact and comfortable for A, but it's uber-stylish. It's smooth and sleek both in looks and manoeuvrability whilst still being able to fold (one handed) down to the ... Read More

BOYFRIEND

asos boyfriend t shirt
When I was pregnant comfort was key, but it was also important to retain my sense of style. One of my favorite everyday looks was what I would describe as boyfriend-chic. Loose sweaters, oversized tops and comfy jogger-style pants or soft jersey trousers. When it came to dresses I was more at home in t-shirt or jumper styles. I also had my favorite pair of maternity jeans and a wear-with-everything knit poncho. For me there was no room for fussy prints or fancy materials (except on special occasions when a statement piece was required).

With this in mind I would like to draw you ... Read More

AUTUMN TWEED

31 Jul

Ugg-Tweed
The perfect flats for busy mums-on-the-go - I am loving the new season sneakers by UGG. I have this style in summer's orange and am strongly considering investing in a tweed version ready for Autumn.  The 1 inch platform is perfect for adding a bit of height without having to struggle in heels. Now just to decide which colour-way....charcoal or chocolate....

And how cute are these little suede Moccasin booties for the little ones?! ... Read More

KATE MIDDLETON

30 Jul

KM M
Kate Middleton always looks so polished, even when she has just given birth!

Pictured leaving the palace  recently in the back of a Range Rover, Kate kept it chic in a blossom print knot front dress by Seraphine as she happily waved to crowds. N.B. how Kate accessorised with over-sized sunglasses to hide those inevitable tired eyes. Big sunnies are a new mum must-have!



KM is said to be a big fan of the maternity label Seraphine, that also specialises in cute nursing wear, apparently she has ordered several other styles!  I am also a fan of Seraph ... Read More
