GIFTS FOR HIM

10 Dec

Tom dixon pic
The hardest person to buy for at Christmas, it's always the man? Why is that?

Dads are easy, and happy with most things, Brothers - the same goes really, you can never go wrong with clothes or some aftershave. But for him I find it a lot more challenging. You want something a little more, but without having to spend too much. (Unless you can afford that new Rolex.) So what am I thinking? Well I still don't have anything decided, but I have stumbled across a few possibilities.

My latest discovery Tom Dixon has some really chic, contemporary gifts ... Read More

WRAP-UP

4 Dec

Marni wool-felt coat
Wrap-up in style, that new coat is calling. Question is can you hold off until the sales?

A chunky knit is my go-to for winter, so when it comes to outer-wear it needs to be oversized. (Expectant dressing approved.) Those most coveted styles, Joseph's belted wool mac or a Marni olive-green version are my dream buys. From a more realistic view point the high street have some things similar, that I also love. COS is a favourite right now for that new addition, and they have the cutest mini-me version for A which I feel is a must? I am also lusting over Ganni's teddy coat for that ... Read More

DEAR SANTA

2 Dec

Moniva vinader
Now December is finally here it's time to start thinking gifts. And also time to start thinking about that wish-list. It's always fun creating your own gift-list, even if it is just in your head.

So what would I like to un-wrap this year Santa? Well being a typical female, fashion-loving, shoes and handbag obsessive, it's kinda easy. I'm also partial to anything Alex Monroe or Monica Vinader. (Specifically I would love an MV engraved necklace in rose gold.) I'm also in the market for some new perfume, seeing as my three year old has taken to my current collection so intently, I ...

BOOT-UP

4 Nov

Boots
Our recent mild weather seems to have finally subsided. There was definitely a chill in the air this morning, no? So with winter now firmly on the radar, footwear focus has turned to boots.

A great pair of boots is a winter wardrobe staple and I believe it's always best to invest. After-all, choosing wisely you will soon find that perfect pair is your go-to. From the school run to date night, they will instantly add glamour to your look. You will also find said pair re-appear each winter season. Until like my current pair, they are worn to death.

For my n ... Read More

BLANKET CAPES

21 Oct

Blake-Lively
So in case you haven't already noticed, perhaps one of the biggest trends this Autumn/Winter has to be the blanket cape. Burberry set the scene with their monogrammed Prorsum blanket, taken straight from the runway onto the shoulders of the fashion elite. Then as is most things Burberry, the fashion world followed suit.

We cannot all afford in excess of £500 for the real-deal, (and personally I wouldn't spend that much for a seasonal piece that probably won't last more than one anyway..) but luckily there is a great choice of just-as-chic alternatives. What is just so great a ... Read More

LOUNGING

14 Oct

Maje
Being pregnant, especially during that third trimester, requires a total amount of comfort. But comfort and style can come hand in hand.

I'm no longer with bump but I can still speak with experience; For the most part, towards the end, lounging was the name of the game. Be it at home, on the school run or sitting at a desk, I pretty much had it mastered. Isabella Oliver was my go-to, and new pregnancy portal Nine In The Mirror would also have featured heavily (damn you, six months too late!) Choosing styles wisely means they can remain post-bump. I still pull on those f ... Read More

CUCUKA

9 Oct

Brought to my attention just a few weeks ago, Cucuka leather changing bags: Coming very soon, and most coveted. I might even go as far as to say perhaps the chic new 'it' bag for stylish mums.

You know the spiel, so I won't go into that practicality side of things again (!). Quickly and foremost, think buttery soft leather, gorgeous looks and a designer quality. Cucuka is my kind of arm candy then, and it just so happens to have that required function. Don't mind if I do. My name will most definitely be going on that list. How about you?

GREY

4 Sep

Camilla-shift1
The hottest hue this season, it's all about grey.

I don't know what it is but there is something effortlessly chic about a grey blouse or shift?  And Madderson London have just re-emphasised this with their latest AW14 collection. The signature Camilla shift re-worked in Jaquard is case in point. As is their new addition Florence Blouse in grey. Pregnant and working in town? (Or simply looking for a statement maternity piece.) - You need look no further.

Shop here. I will be shopping here.

Love,

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE BAG

3 Sep

photo-38
So you know I am an accessories kind of girl? Well, with bags as the focus, or more precisely changing bags (which is where my mind is still at) it's always exciting to discover something new.

Love them or loathe them, having a baby requires this different kind of handbag. You need a carry-all, something big enough for all the baby essentials, that also comes with a shoulder strap. Hello baby-bag. More specifically the printed tote kind, a little sporty with masculine shape, and oh-so-practical. You know I am not usually a fan of anything that screams baby when it comes ...
