Modern Baby Buys: New Season Girl’s

The other day I braved mine and Mia’s first trip alone to Westfield and it was a real girls trip! For those who don’t know, it’s a HUGE indoor shopping centre in Shepherd’s Bush with nearly every shop you can imagine. In four hours I visited M&S, Next, Mamas & Papa’s and eventually ran out of time to shop for myself.…

Well This Is Unexpected…

It’s no secret that the introduction to motherhood is different for everyone. For me it’s nothing like I expected. And now almost two months on, I’m still experiencing new things that surprise me everyday. Mother’s Instinct Call it common sense or just understanding your baby but parent intuition IS a thing. But it may not happen straight away. For me…

What A Difference 6 Weeks Makes…

  Reality’s kicked in, you’re out of that first week haze and you’re trying (trying being the operative word here) to get some kind of structure back in your life. After all the fluffy pillows, clouds and love hearts of the first two weeks now’s the time where the sleep deprivation side effects have well and truly kicked in. Who…

Isabella Oliver: The Style Interview

  There’s no denying that being pregnant (and the weeks that follow) can be a real fashion test. Even for even those with a more stylish and sartorial eye. While I was fortunate to have the time to really shop around during my preggo days, some aren’t so lucky. So there’s a need for a go-to brand that’ll always deliver.…

Two weeks later…

“Having a curry? Ooo, watch the baby doesn’t fall out! Hahahahaha!!” Hmm. If only it were that easy. That definitely wasn’t the case when on the thirty fifth hour and two hours of pushing, feeling completely defeated and in the mother of all excruciating pain (and still no sign of baby) I tried taking the IV drips out from my hand…

First Impressions Of Unity

I’m surprised at how untapped the pregnancy beauty market is. Aside from the usual well established pregnancy brands of course. I’ve succumbed to going back to using normal, non-pregnancy related products for the three B’s of my pregnancy body; bump, boobs and bum. So I couldn’t wait to try out the Unity products. Pregnancy specific, each has been designed with…

Fuss Free Pampering In The Final Weeks

Pre-pregnancy, I’d think nothing of spending an entire night on myself. I know it’s selfish and completely vain but pampering for me has always been a way of switching off, a way of relaxing. My sister would agree. Her pre-children days always consisted of a lovely long hot bath, indulgent new skincare and lots of tanning. I’ve been told by…

Eco-friendly Kindness With Kit & Kin

As a blogger with a skincare obsession, I know what works for my adult, aged skin. While I know that some acids and chemicals are great for my skin, I understand that some (even more gentle) chemicals are bad for me. So when it comes to babies, of course I know they need special skincare for their gentle new skin…

Treasured Cashmere From Calf & Co.

A Little Luxury For Life If there’s one thing I’ve learned whilst being pregnant, it’s that babies are super fragile. Stating the obvious I know. But the more research I do in to fabrics, chemical detergents and household germs, the more I want to swaddle my babe in cotton wool and never expose her to anything. Ok, unrealistic. But one…

What They Don’t Tell You About Pregnancy

I absolutely love the baby already. Can I say that without having met her? But as my friend reminded me earlier, my body has been hijacked and my life turned upside down for 9 months. I’m always tired, aching and irritable. Now don’t get me wrong, the baby is going to be so worth it! But I haven’t dealt with pregnancy…
