MY SKINCARE SECRETS

8 Jan

FullSizeRender (16)
,There are many different lotions and potions in my bathroom cabinet but, like most of you i'm guessing, there are only a select few that I really couldn't live without. Some are cult favourites, others are just my own personal recommendation. Skincare + beauty. Here's my routine.

First up cleanse, tone and moisturise. I have always been a Clarins girl, but recently I switched skincare to Jurlique. My love affair with Jurlique began on a trip to Australia about five years ago, where I was introduced to rose water mist. I have been using it ever since, a bottle e ... 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

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

A MOSES BASKET TO RIVAL ANY OTHER

30 Sep

Plum and sparrow 2
So I came across the most divine babies moses basket today on Instagram. So beautiful, gorgeous, unique, I just had to share. I mean have you ever seen one so beautiful? Forget the new Mamas and Papas Liberty range. If you expecting and looking for the perfect, safe place for your newborn bundle to snuggle and sleep, this is it.

Plum + Sparrow is a mother of four, inspired by the world around her, and driven by life's experiences, to create something totally unique, natural and wonderful for her baby. I think she's done a pretty good job, judging by the fact that currently every ... 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

BABYSTYLE EGG

4 Aug

Egg stroller
As you know I am a huge Joolz fan. When it comes to baby transportation for me my Joolz wins hands down. I have worked a lot with this brand through my blog and was even lucky enough to receive a brand new Studio Noir when my second daughter arrived. So you may think I'm biased. However, I'm still using it 16 months in and not for one second have I thought of changing. Or even though about going back to my original Bugaboo Chameleon. Need I say more?  However, I do always keep my eyes and ears open to what's new out there in the market, and one newbie has really caught my eye. Purely from a l ... Read More

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

FERNE COTTON

25 Mar

Ferne cotton
I am a big fan of chunky knits as you know. And it looks like newly pregnant Ferne Cotton might be too. I must admit I'm not totally sure on this specific chunky-knit combination of hers however. For me purple and velvet is a little too 80's, plus the fact purple is my least favourite hue. When it comes to adding colour or texture I would always rather stick to my accessories. But, as a look I like it. I would just opt for denim on cream or grey.

Laid-back, oversized style is the perfect move if you are pregnant and feeling a little fat over blooming. I also love this kinda thin ... Read More

NON-MATERNITY, MATERNITY

17 Mar

Non Maternity maternity
Whenever I am nearby a COS I have to pop in. It's one of my favourite stores for everyday, and right up my street when it comes to timeless and oversized silhouettes. That's their signature, which works perfectly for me. And co-incidentally it also works perfectly as non-maternity, maternity. I loved shopping their during pregnancy too. It was refreshing to know I wasn't changing my own signature just because of a bump, and I knew those 'maternity' pieces would remained season after season so it was guilt free.

Scandinavian, maybe one of the reasons why I love it so much? (There ... Read More

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
