SUMMER SALES EDIT

27 Jun

Cecile copenhagen
It always seems a little pointless to go too crazy with a new summer wardrobe until the sales start. They generally all kick off before July these days. (Although not everywhere on the high street is on sale yet.) There is nothing worse than buying something at the beginning of the season that you haven't actually worn yet and then seeing it in the sales for up to half the price! So annoying. Therefore when planning my holiday wardrobe for example, I always wait. We never go away until the school holidays start anyway and by then pretty much everywhere is on sale.

SPRING EDIT

15 Mar

and other stories
Snow's over and Spring is definitely on the horizon, judging by all the pretty little flowers popping up everywhere anyway. I am still wearing my duvet coat for the school run so Spring is definitely not quite in the air yet. However I am more than fed up with winter fashion and my attention is definitely now on what's trending for Spring Summer. I am totally over anything chunky, grey or black.

I love Spring, it's definitely the prettiest season. This is not only evident in all the spring blossoms, daffodils and tulips, pretty pinks. Forals and lavender are also being injected ... Read More

HAIR ACCESSORIES FOR GIRLS

3 May

Glammrags
Who knew actually how impossible it is to find school hair clips? After Easter the girls started at a new school and as a result we had to change all their current green hair clips and bands to blue. Being out of season, i.e April not September, it was impossible to find any in the shops; Thank goodness for Glammrags. An online boutique, run by two London mums, that have all the colours and styles of hairbands, clips and ties you may ever need, including those for school.

Glammrags offer traditional styles as well as more fun accessorie ... Read More

POM-POMS AND POPLIN

18 Aug

Apologies for my extreme lack of radio silence. The combination of school holiday's, summer in Italy and trying to keep on-top of running my own business, has resulted in me literally having no spare time to blog. However, I have been getting so many PR and collaboration requests recently, I though it best time I update things.

So what better place to start than with a bit of fashion inspiration? In-particular two of my current favourite trends - pom-pom flats and poplin. Extravagant and fun, the pom-pom flat had been trending for a whi ... Read More

HAPPY NEW YEAR

6 Jan

So it's here, 2016! Happy New Year! I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and celebrated the NY in style. Even if it was just with a delicious supper and some champagne at home with friends and family. As parents this is more often than not the case when it comes to NYE, no?

Now that 2016 is in full swing it's time to start thinking about what is planned for the year ahead, and what resolutions, if any, to make. It's usually a good idea to choose things that are attainable. I have learnt this from experience. My main resolution is to be more organised. in fact this ... Read More

LUXURY GIFT IDEAS FOR MUM

25 Nov

Gift ideas
I have been thinking a lot about what I might like for Christmas. My husband asked me the other day and I must admit I wasn't really too sure. As a 'mum' there isn't really anything too specific that I fancy. Previously, and as Mumzynot started out as a proper mummy blog, I would have endless gift ideas all baby related. Now, the girls are getting bigger and all those mum-type gifts are no longer part of the equation. However, being a girl, not just a mum, there are a few things I wouldn't mind discovering under the tree come Christmas morning.

First on ... Read More

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MONSOON!

2 Nov

Last weekend A and I were invited to an exclusive party, to celebrate 20 years of Monsoon Kids. Held at the Tower of London, upon arrival we were transported into a magical woodland world. There were many highlights from the day and the face painting was out of this world. I could never imagine a more beautiful unicorn! Just for fun A and I decided to wear matching Monsoon looks. Not something I would usually do, but it seemed more than appropriate on this occasion, and actually rather a cute idea.

Celebrations aside, we got to view some of their new season pieces. I fell in lov ... Read More

ZARA MATERNITY WEAR

15 Oct

Zara blouse
So I was just browsing Zara on-line for the girls (and for me) and noticed a new maternity section. About time Zara. Great news. It should be good.

Although very limited their maternity pieces don't disappoint. Out of the 11 items on offer (four are 'mum' jeans) I would happily pick any one to wear myself. The minimal and roomy feel is perfect, looking comfortable whilst retaining style. I would perhaps sum it up as a capsule collection for pregnancy. Day to night dress. check. Jeans. check. Blouse. check. My favourite piece is probably the faux leather dress, which I w ... Read More

TIMELESS BEAUTY WITH LOQUET LONDON

12 Oct

Loquet
One piece of jewellery that I have wanted for quite some time now is a necklace. I like the idea of something personal, and up until now a Monica Vinader engraved pendant was top of my list. Ever since having my daughters I have wanted some jewellery to represent their birth, our life and love. I have wanted a personalised necklace that I can wear everyday and never take off. Then I came across Loquet.

Loquet is still a relatively new name in the world of luxury jewellery. A British concept created by Sheherazade Goldsmith with Laura Bailey that launched in June ... Read More

THE WINTER CAPE MAKES A COMBACK

7 Oct

Joseph
Pretty much every winter the cape makes a comeback. I have several styles in my wardrobe that I can't wait to bring out from hibernation as soon as the weather takes a turn. I have in-fact got a gorgeous tartan cape that I got when I was still at university. This just goes to show the capes longevity.

As with most things sartorially, even if you do have something similar on rotation, there's always the need for an update. Especially when you know it will be well worth the investment. I would like to add here too, that the cape is the perfect cosy, yet cool, cover-up in pregnancy ... Read More
