Why I believe in magic…

Sooo, I believed in Santa Clause until I was, wait for it, eleven. Or maybe even twelve. God knows but anyway, I don't care that you're all falling about on the floor with laughter at the girl who was in High School when she realised yep, it really is Mum and Dad clattering about down… Continue reading Why I believe in magic…

5 minutes of fabulous…

If there is one thing I think women need to do more in general, it's to feel better about themselves. We're bloomin' damn well amazing don't you know? We all have insecurities and I think in most cases they increase when you become a Mother. But this is how I look at it: I grew… Continue reading 5 minutes of fabulous…

Wearing your Mum stripes…

You've got 5 minutes to choose your outfit before the baby wakes up. Jewellery is a no-no because they're at the grab-anything-I-see-and-eat-it phase. The weather is really English: Rain, wind and rain. Ha! Not a problem. Tailored pants and cosy knit combo. Win. I admit I actively went looking for these items because they are… Continue reading Wearing your Mum stripes…

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

Yep, this post is late and yep, New Year and Christmas are totally gone however... I just wanted to say what a fabulous first we had! Hectic as it was, Maggie got to see all the people we love and now, after a lonnggggg couple of weeks, our routine (as in we wake up and… Continue reading It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

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…?

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!

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…

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…

The pregnant wedding guest…

It's hard enough choosing what to wear to a wedding as it is, without having to include a baby bump in the equation. It was however quite a heart warming experience for me. I hate to say it, but I'm one of those women who is constantly touching 'it'. And by it, I'm talking about… Continue reading The pregnant wedding guest…
