SWIMWEAR

20 Jul

Anthro
Who knew? Anthropologie I have just discovered have perhaps the most amazing collection of swimwear. Ever. And just in time for the summer holidays which is even more exciting.

Aside from shoes and bags, I think swimwear is one of my favourite thing to shop for. I'm always on the look out for new additions. You can't really ever have enough costumes right? (It's also almost nearly pregnancy-proof when it comes to what you can and cannot wear. At least the first couple of trimesters anyway.)  So what's so great about Anthropologies collection? High-waists, structured tops and b ... Read More

LITTLE SWIMMERS

13 Apr

There is no time like the present when it comes to investing in those new summer additions. And even more so where little ones and swimming costumes are concerned. Every season when I go to stock up for our Italian summers away, there are never any sizes left in my favourites. Don't you just hate that? Well, this year, and with two little ones to purchase for, I have vowed to get in there early.

With my most recent quest under-way I came across this really cool children's boutique, Busy and the Boy, and instantly fell in love with their little swimwear collection. We travel quit ... Read More

LOVE THEM, HATE THEM?

I have been looking for the perfect pair of summer slides for a while now. Being more of a fashion style I didn't really want to spend too much. I always save the designer shoe for something more classic that you will wear forever. Although If money were no object I would most definitely look straight to Celine or Marant. I also wanted my new slides to be white, so was in the mind set that a white pair of flats that will probably be worn a lot are not going to last more than one season. Then I came across these beauties. The perfect pair - white, celine-esque, with a little ... Read More

SS14. ON MY WISHLIST

6 Mar

IO-jacket
What's on my wishlist this Spring Summer?

Although I am not a girly girl, this season I am finding myself drawn to some of those pastel pieces. A little bit of candy pink teamed with white or grey is not too girly, right? I am also in love with the sporty-shoe-sandal-thing. Not everyone's cup of tea, but there is something a little bit cool about a Slide. Step up Isabel Marant. Zara also have a couple of quirky styles, for those of you that are still un-decided and want something a little more throw-away.

An over-sized coat in cream is a must (Hello Ga ... Read More

ISABELLA OLIVER SS14

Isabella Oliver is one of my go-to's when it comes to maternity wear. Their iconic jersey pieces are favoured by myself and celebrities a-like. When it comes to dressing that bump in comfort and style a ruched T-shirt or simple tank are essential elements to any such wardrobe. Not to mention a great pair of maternity jeans, leather pants, a chic LBD, and some more statement everyday looks if you wish. (Think sequin maternity jacket and elegant maternity-maxi.)

So when I was asked to review their new SS14 collection, I was more than happy to do so. Seein ... Read More

HOLIDAY ESSENTIALS

11 Jun

Clarins Sun milk for children and babies. 100% mineral sun cream, water resistant and just delicious. It's only £18!
Packing for holiday is both exciting and stressful. I emphasize stressful as I am packing for two, under a strict weight limit! (Thanks Ryanair!) I emphasize excitement as we are off to Italy for a wedding!

Thankfully I have my wedding outfit sorted (that's the main thing!?) and A is a bridesmaid so I don't even need to think about hers. The rest needs to be seaside-suitable with a few glam looks for evening soirees.

If you are off on your holidays soon and wondering what to take with a little on in tow - Here are some Mumzynot suitcase-essentials. I have learnt t ... 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!?)
