MY TREAT

9 Jul

IMG_20130623_154443
Since I had A I have found myself mostly shopping for her. There is nothing more fun that styling your very own mini-me. However, in the last few month I have started to enjoy shopping for myself a lot more. I  guess after nearly two years I feel completely happy with my post pregnancy figure and therefore happy to invest in my own wardrobe again. They do say it takes time to get back to being yourself after having a baby.- I am now well and truely back in the swing.

My latest treat to myself was just ment-to-be, found in the Harrods sale when I was visiting instore to change a ... Read More

BOBO CHOSES. THE PETIT COLLECTION

7 Jul

bobo chooses shirts
I have just stumbled upon Bobo Choses and had to share them with you guys.

Bobo Choses is a quirky-cool brand of babies and kids wear from Spain. I think you will agree when I say their Petit Collection is just too cute!? A Bobo Choses kid, is definitely a super-stylish one.

My favorite has to be the Fish & Chips romper. This would be perfect for A to wear to the Aldeburgh seaside this weekend - their fish and Chips are the best you will ever taste, so seems rather fitting?! I also adore the overall styles with fruit-motif print. Now to decide which items to c ... Read More

STRIPES

4 Jul

Topshop-stripe
The is often a misconception that stripes do little to flatter a larger figure (case in point when you are pregnant). However this does not always have to be the case. Choosing the right style, usually in the form of a maxi dress, can actually create a really chic maternity look. Just see these images of Cacee Cobb and Hilaria Baldwin - both are heavily pregnant, both are wearing striped maxi's and both look effortless.





The high street offers a great choice when it comes to stripes. Whether you look to maternity brands or prefer to stick to ready ... Read More

POTTY TRAINING

2 Jul

Gina-Ford
Now A has turned two and summer is finally here (according to the weather man, today's grey sky is just a blip and a heatwave is on the way!) my thoughts are strongly turning towards potty training.

If I am honest, I just can't be bothered to face it. But I know that it has to be done and A is definitely showing strong signs of 'being ready'. I am still in two minds. Some mums have recommended waiting until she is a bit older, when she can properly get the concept and understand what is required. Others say to seize the day. What has started to sway me towards the latter is a fe ... Read More

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

30 Jun

Where does the time go?! This weekend we celebrated A's 2nd birthday and I honestly can't believe it was over two years ago that we welcomed her into this world. It really is true, time flies when you are having fun. I would like to freeze it for a little while now please?

To celebrate A turning two, this year we decided to keep it relatively low key. Instead of a big party we just had an intimate BBQ with our family and a couple of A's best friends. It was a lovely afternoon. Highlights included the house-size new climbing frame, learning to ride the electric quad bike and the ... Read More
