JESSICA ALBA PREGNANT?

15 May

Jessica-Alba-pregnant
This is maybe a little controversial and I don't usually like to spread rumors.... But I was just reading about Jessica Alba's Honest company, looking at pics from their 10th anniversary celebration and i'm thinking (I don't know why, I just have an inkling) Is Jessica maybe pregnant with baby no.3...? She just seems to have some sort of pregnancy-aura and the baggy clothes don't help fuel my suspicions. Is that the first signs of a very teeny-tiny baby-bump?

Watch this space. If I am right, you read it on Mumzynot first!

ADEN + ANAIS POP-UP IN HARRODS

14 May

aden-+-anais-at-Harrods
Just a quickie - One of my favorite baby brands, aden + anais, has recently launched a pop-up store in Harrods. A  must-visit next time you are heading that way. You can shop their collection (which is a real treat as most baby-boutiques only offer a very small selection) and also view the latest print- additions to the aden + anais family.

I love aden + anais and since A was born I have managed to put together an extensive collection of their most luxurious 100% cotton Muslins. (You can never have too many Muslins and you can't beat the quality of aden + anais). I will definit ... Read More

A LIFESTYLE COACH, WORN ON YOUR WRIST!

14 May

UP-wristband
Gwyneth Paltrow is said to be a massive fan, and after reading a recent article in the Daily Mail (Yes I know, of all places!) I am really liking the sound of this new fitness/lifestyle craze....

The UP wristband is described as a 'lifestyle coach'. It's a simple, rubber bracelet that contains a built-in motion sensor and Motionx GPS, that monitors your daily activity and reacts accordingly. It vibrates if you have been inactive and a stopwatch monitors any activities.

Working alongside an iphone app, the UP wristband by Jawbone, estimates your daily calories burn ... Read More

COVER-UP

8 May

ZImmermann
I am a huge fan of the Australian brand Zimmermann. I discovered them first hand whilst on holiday in Sydney and after visiting their Westfield store I was hooked. Several hours shopping later, with the help of a gorgeous sales assistant from Bournemouth (of all places) I left a very happy bunny, with two new bikinis and a stunning cut-out-floral dress. (Dress as pictured below. My outfit for my brother's beautiful wedding two days later. That's the Sydney skyline in the background - Pretty amazing venue setting huh!?)



Specialising in swimwear, this is a brand ev ... Read More

MET BALL 2013 – MUMMY-STYLE

7 May

Sienna-Miller
Last night was the annual Met Ball Gala in New York and this years dress code was a little more edgy than previous years - This year, guests were asked to go Punk! With this in mind I was excited to see how my favorite celebrity mums were going to style their red carpet looks, whilst retaining the glitz and glamour of previous years.

In true Punk fashion - studs, spikes and dramatic make-up were the theme of the night. Leather, lace and brocade were also in abundance. As with most celebrity style events there were some fashion hits, as well as some impressive fashion faux-pas ... Read More

JEWELS. THE BIGGER THE BETTER

3 May

Jewelery
This season is all about the jewels, the bigger the better. Jewelry is a great way to update your look and add some glamour to a simple outfit.

If your budget doesn't stretch to a showstopper from the likes of Gucci or Versace (lets face it, not many peoples does) the high street have some great alternatives. As does the Outnet, I buy nearly all my designer pieces here.

Happy Friday,

Love Jess x
