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.

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

JOOLZ GEO STUDIO

11 Sep

Geo studio
Those new-mums-to-be, if they come via my blog and are looking for stroller advice, will be immediately directed to Joolz. Bias aside (I own a Joolz and work closely with this brand) so far, I have yet to drive a rival. I have worked with most of the main brands - Bugaboo, McLaren, Babyzen, Cosatto, Cybex - yet Joolz still remains top of my list. If you are looking for style, comfort, design and ease-of-use, Joolz is it. Hands down. The attention to detail in their design is second to none.

All the above aside, what also make the Joolz a stand-out brand is the customisation opti ... Read More

CHILDREN’S TABLEWARE

20 Aug

Mouk
I don't know about you, but I am actually a little fussy when it comes to my children's tableware. As soon as it's time to start weaning one of the most exciting parts is investing in new tableware. Weaning is a messy and often stressful business so it's important to add a little bit of fun wherever you can. A sweet tableware set is actually a fun way of making mealtimes more exciting. Especially if said set features a favourite story or children's character.

Although a pretty obvious and necessary part of new motherhood, children's tableware is actually a bit of a minefield. Th ... Read More

LUST-LIST

18 Aug

Suede shoe
We have just returned from another wonderful summer in Italy and instantaneously I am feeling the cold! It may still be August but judging by the current weather forecasts 'that great British summer' is long gone. So for now, sartorially, thoughts have turned to Autumn. I'm now thinking pieces that will see me through to winter.

Suede is top of my list for the new season. I fell in love with a suede trench at the beginning of summer which I wore to bits already. Sadly it's gone missing?? How can that happen - last seen in my car. I think about that coat always...Anyway, with sue ... 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!

SAY IT WITH A CANDLE

15 Jan

Noe 2
So you know I love a scented candle, Diptyque, Jo Malone are all penchants of mine, and lately these lovelies from Noe Candles are top of the list. I love a little personalisation, mixed with luxury and divine smelling, you can't really go wrong, right?

Noe Candles are hand-poured, soy, organic and biodegradable (so completely natural and chemical free) they also burn up to 50% longer than normal candles. All these technicalities aside, they make for a gorgeous interiors accessory and personally, no room should be without one. What a great gift for others, or yourself? Nothing ... Read More

NURSING KNITS

8 Jan

So I am no longer breastfeeding but when friends Babes With Babies asked to feature something gorgeous from their collection, I knew this was no matter. As a maternity and breastfeeding go-to of mine, when it comes to their clothing practicality is just a formality.

So, as it should, the Babes With Babies collection has several lovely pieces that appear in no-way baby/pregnancy/breastfeeding/new mum related, and after a quick search I picked something I have actually be looking for, for quite a while. - A chunky poncho-style cable-knit in that lovely shade of charcoal grey. (Cur ... Read More

HOSPITAL BAG BEAUTY

21 Feb

IMG_20140220_093418
Yesterday I began to pack my hospital bag, starting with some beauty essentials. Perhaps not the most important contents of said bag, but still pretty crucial to make my trip (and possible overnight stay) a little more luxurious. Let's face it hospitals are far from it, so I need all the help I can get.

I have always been one of those girls that follows a strict skincare regime - cleanse, tone and moisturise - no matter what. The same will be the case at that time in the next few weeks. As soon as I get the opportunity I will be in that shower, hair washed, cl ... Read More

HEAVENLY SCENTS

21 Jan

Le-Labo-bergamont
Le Labo, my new favourite perfume.

Made-to-order heavenly scents created by New York perfume laboratory Le Labo are simply delicious. Choose your smell, wait whilst it is lovingly formulated by hand and then presented to you in a simplistic signature bottle, dated and named. Each of their ten scents are totally unique but equally as divine. It's pretty hard to choose a favourite, but I think it may have to be either Santal or Patchouli. Bergamote is gorgeous too!

Le Labo is not your average mass produced perfume, so you can't get your hands on a bottle just like t ... Read More
