A Well Needed Summer Wardrobe Update

I don’t feel like I’ve really updated my wardrobe for years and I mean that literally, let alone getting a summer wardrobe ready. I’ve of course added one or two pieces but since becoming pregnant with Isabella 5 years ago, I feel like my wardrobe has just stagnated. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m certainly not one who keeps up with all the latest trends and fashions; in fact it took a good two or three years for me to {Read More}

November Rain Poncho Review

With the wonderful weather we are often faced with in the UK, especially over the spring and summer, I often end up taking clumpy rain coats out and either get too hot with a coat on, or end up hauling it round just because of the unpredictability. Well now I have a simple, elegant and more importantly, a compact solution. November Rain Ponchos are a fully waterproof (not just rain resistant) ponchos which come in a range of prints and {Read More}

Moyles Ankle Boots from Lotus

If you are like me, you can never have too many pairs of boots – especially as our British weather means we are in boots longer than any other type of footwear! The Moyles Ankle Boots are brilliant for dressing up or down and certainly look exceptionally stylish! The faux shearling is applied to the turned down collar and you can wear this up or turned down depending on the look you are going for. The leather is lovely and {Read More}

Rieker Garnet Boots: Review

I’ve been looking for some flat leather knee high boots for a while now; my problem is that if they are too wide, they gape and don’t look very good. However, these Rieker Garnet boots from Brantano fit brilliantly. They aren’t too wide at the top as they have a fluffy textile inside the boot. The boots are really comfortable. I wanted a boot that I could wear all day and that was versatile enough to be more casual or {Read More}

Getting Confidence from Clothes

I’ve written before about getting back my style after pregnancy and having to find out about styles that suit my new body shape which you can read about here. But more than a few months on and I’m still feeling more like a ‘frumpy mum’ rather than a 30-year-old ‘yummy mummy’. Not feeling great about the way you look can have a huge impact on the way you feel and behave. I’ve found that I’m not as confident when I’m {Read More}

My summer holiday must have outfit

With the holidayswell under way and a few trips and parties as well as a holiday to think about, I’ve been looking for that must have look. I don’t often get the chance to wear dresses these days as I just don’t find them hugely practical when looking after a toddler and pre-schooler. But I do like to wear them when I’ve got a reason to. For a lovey date night or a day trip, even a party, I think {Read More}

Bravado’s Signature Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra: Review

Bravado’s Signature Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra has to be one of the most comfortable bras I have ever worn. It is the perfect choice for when you are both pregnant and breastfeeding as it stretches and moulds to your changing shape. It’s so comfortable that when feeding at night I forgot that I had it on. It just gives you the right level of support without being too tight or non-movable. It is seamless and wireless for even greater {Read More}

Cottonridge Club Hoodie: Review

I was given the opportunity at the tail end of last year to review a Cottonridge Club Hoodie and I jumped at the chance. Although I don’t wear hoodies every day, I do love to snuggle in one in the evening or chuck one under a gillet for a walk and finding good quality hoodies isn’t always top of my list. I was so impressed when the hoodie arrived; it was presented in a fantastic presentation box (which I now {Read More}

New Body New Style – John Lewis Make Over

Over the summer I had the chance to get a makeover with Bobbi Brown make-up and be styled with the lovely stylists in our local John Lewis. Having just had my second child, I found I didn’t know what suited my new body shape and as for colours, apparently I’ve been choosing some of the wrong ones! Having spent a good few hours with different people, I felt I now had a better idea of how to manage my ‘new {Read More}

The Power of Vanish

With Isabella back at pre-school the washing load seems to have doubled as she comes home most days covered in paint. I sometimes wonder if she paints herself on purpose!   Anyway, with all the paint, and longer hours at school, I don’t always manage to get the clothes washed while the paint is wet, in fact, it’s almost always dry and therefore a lot harder to get out. Vanish have come to my rescue though and sent me some fantastic {Read More}
