Valentines day inspiration

30 Jan

Linear beads
Can you believe Valentines day is just around the corner? As tough and miserable a month January has been it's actually flown by! Hello February. February is actually a really good month for me as we usually head off for some winter sun around about this time. It's also my birthday month AND it's Valentines day. That's a lot to celebrate.

When it comes to valentines day, whilst roses and chocolates are nice, they can be a little bit of a cliche this time of year. And trust me, a girls can smell a petrol station bunch and box a mile off. In fact, ... Read More

SUDIO SWEDEN. CHIC WIRELESS EARPHONES

10 Nov

IMG_7014 (002)
I don't often listen to music these days. i'm not sure why, aside from the fact that we no longer own a cd player (who does?) and I literally have no idea how to download a song! I think maybe it's also to do with having children. Life is a constant rush that there never seems to be the opportunity. The one time I do get to listen to music is in the car, but only when the girls are not with me. My youngest especially hates having music on in the car as it means she can't talk. She loves to talk and does not appreciate having to compete against the radio. Which is fair enough and anyway, I love ... Read More

PERSONALISED BASKETS AND STORAGE FROM EDIT.58

11 Feb

The sweetest personalised baskets were gifted to the girls over Christmas by my SIL. I had already discovered Edit.58 and was actually coveting the exact same baskets. Great minds think alike it seems. Luckily my SIL realised the same and gave me a heads up to make sure we didn't double-up! Although it wouldn't actually have been a problem. Not only do these 'mini-edits' make the most adorable beach bags, they are also perfect little storage for toys and books.

Edit.58 is the perfect destination for those looking for something a little differen ... 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

CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS FOR THE GIRLS

4 Nov

Kukkia Magic board £49.95
So we may only just have made it into November, and you may feel it's still too early to be really thinking about Christmas, but seeing as it's my favourite time of year I can't wait to get thinking, planning and buying! Plus, there are actually only seven weekends left. When you look at it like that?

First up it's the girls. There is SO much inspiration out there, it really is necessary to have a good think before going full steam ahead. As with everything else, I like to buy fewer more quality gifts. Toys that I know will remain post-Christmas, rather than ones that w ... Read More

VALENTINE, OR VALENTINO?

9 Feb

Valentino
What's on your wishlist this February 14th? Of course, every day should be Valentines day, but it's always nice to have an excuse for presents, no?

For me there is nothing more un-romantic than a Valentines date-night. Tables of two, set menu's and prosecco are not top of my list.  But I will never say no to gifts. A thoughtful present topped off with yummy food, fireside snuggles and a delicious bottle of red. Now that's true love. (Kids in bed, on time, and sleeping through permitting...)

Alternatively, who needs a Valentine, Valentino will do!

ADDED TOUCHES

I had a fantastic surprise delivery the other day. Something personalised too, which is always a nice added touch.

The Joolz Day travel-system, my current travel-system of choice, have introduced a really cool new feature to their design. The My Joolz service - in which you can create your own unique stroller with a personalised, laser engraved bumper bar. Like I said pretty cool, no? I was sent two, one engraved with the name of my daughter, the other aptly 'Mumzynot' in a contrasting turquoise colour which looks great against the all black. A welcome nod to spring. Love it.

DREAMY

15 Jan

Saint-Lauren
'Who say's you can't re-invent a classic?' Indeed.

It's my big 3-0 c0ming up next month so for something to do, and because my husband recently asked for gift ideas, I have been having a little dream about what I might just love to receive - The re-worked Saint Lauren Cassandre has totally caught my eye. Isn't she dreamy? And what's even better, I haven't spotted her on any a WAG or celeb wanna-be.

OK, so Cassandre is not going to be very practical as a new mum with toddler and newborn in tow. But it's my birthday, and anyway, baby (and no-doubt A) will b ... Read More

PLUSHER LONDON

14 Nov

PLusher
On Saturday I attended the Plusher press preview - London's first ever luxury mother, family and baby show.  Doors opened to the Royal Horticultural Halls at 9.30am and I was one of the first through the doors, eager to experience the day's offerings. You might have already guessed, where luxury is concerned, I am there.

The show was relatively small and intimate (this was a good thing) with plenty of attractions to keep the little ones busy - mini-mani's from Little Bu, photoshoot stations, a dance corner and an adorable Alice in Wonderland themed fashion show. Of-course there ... Read More
