To baby or to eyeline…?

My answer is both. Baby in one hand and eyeliner in the other. You can still be you...even with a baby 😉 Through the crying, the nappy changing, the sick, the nappy changing, the smiles, the, erm, nappy changing and feeding, you can still manage to feel a little like yourself. It may have taken… Continue reading To baby or to eyeline…?

4 feel good products for new Mums…

I'm about to go and get a shower (finally! I stink. Do all new Mums stink? In fact, don't answer that.) while he has snuggle with Maggie and I thought to myself, why not share what products I use with you guys? Because I'm pretty sure this nightly routine of mine keeps me sane. Perhaps… Continue reading 4 feel good products for new Mums…

Balancing Motherhood and markets…

I've only been at this Motherhood business for four weeks and I've just about cracked juggling Maggie in one hand whilst making coffee, brushing my teeth and shaving my legs with the other. It's tough. But once you've found what works for you, it kinda just falls in to place. For example, if you're going… Continue reading Balancing Motherhood and markets…

With new life comes new routine…or not!

My Grandma has always told each and every one of us that when it comes to babies, the best thing you can do is get them in to a routine, especially at night. "Bath, fed, bed!" Yeah, but what if the babies just don't get it? I have been trying my hardest for the past… Continue reading With new life comes new routine…or not!

Welcome Maggie May!

I've been a Mum since I found out I was expecting and the wonderful feeling that came over me at that point is un-describable. So how can I even begin to find the words to capture how I feel now she's actually here? Yes, she is a ...she! I'm sorry it's taken me three weeks… Continue reading Welcome Maggie May!

The ultimate pregnancy snack: Banana & oat slices…

I'm nearly there. And boy don't I know it! I always thought I'd be one of those pregnant women who could keep up the tempo right until the end but right now, if you're not a pillow, I don't have time for you... I've been working really hard, pretty much tired myself out and with… Continue reading The ultimate pregnancy snack: Banana & oat slices…

Asos maternity magic…

So I'm feeling pretty good at 35 weeks pregnant (really sorry to rub that in if anyone out there isn't!) but whether you're glowing or glowering at each and every randomer who professes to tell you 'how big that belly is looking', anyone at this stage knows dressing bumps can be challenging. You've either got… Continue reading Asos maternity magic…

My £18 go-to pregnancy outfit…

Pregnant or not, everybody has that one go-to outfit that they change in to after trying on six failed ensembles and all of sudden, feel themselves again. Since the bump has got bigger (and the boobs), loose fitting garments are totally my best friend. The thing is though, I don't want to hide my bump… Continue reading My £18 go-to pregnancy outfit…

The maternity necklace…

Hi guys! So it's fair to say....I've been majorly busy these past few months and it's fair to say, the bump has grown! In these last few weeks, you really start to feel, well, pregnant. My desk at work is now not really suitable for a bump, my seat belt feels uncomfortable and yep, my pants… Continue reading The maternity necklace…

Getting to the root of pregnancy hair…

My silver mane is my thing. It's my signature, my shining glory and the more I look like I've had a blue rinse, the better. There was a time when the dip-dyed trend was my go-to preference, but as I began to slide towards mystical unicorn rather than wannabe Chung, letting my roots grow through… Continue reading Getting to the root of pregnancy hair…
