For those of you that aren't already aware, I'm heading to BritMums Live for the first time this year and am lucky enough to have sponsorship from the wonderful Baby Mori. Baby Mori is a subscription box of premium, simple and chic items for your baby, that you receive every 6 weeks. The quality of the boxes are exceptional, using materials like bamboo and cotton and you can really feel this when you receive the items. Not to mention it's like getting a present every 6 weeks, which everyone loves! (more…)

The Tree of Life – Merci Maman Jewellery
May 22, 2015 at 9:53 am 5
When I stumbled across Merci Maman Boutique, I instantly fell in love with its charm and delicate selection of jewellery. For any mum-to-be, mother or grandmother, the selection of jewellery can be personalised and makes the ideal gift and keepsake. I believe none other than the Royal Duchess of Cambridge herself has been seen wearing one of the wonderful collection. So I knew I was in good company when I placed my order for the Tree of Life Chain Bracelet. I am in love with rose gold at the moment and don't currently own anything in the colour, so knew straight away that that was what I wanted. My favourite thing about the Merci Maman Boutique, is that everything can be personalised and engraved with a personal message or names.  (more…)

My Nursery Wish List – Minted
May 3, 2015 at 7:03 pm 0
So I'm definitely getting into that nesting phase of the pregnancy and want to get started on the nursery! While looking for inspiration online, I stumbled across an awesome site - Minted.com. I actually found Minted when I was looking at baby shower invitations, but quickly realised they don't just do stationery - they also do home decor and more importantly, decor for the nursery! We're not quite ready to redecorate just yet (have got a couple more weeks to go), so in the meantime, I've created a wish list of things I'd like from Minted if I could have whatever I wanted...

New Look Maternity Jeans – Review

As your bump is ever-expanding, you'll probably find that you can no longer get away with your regular jeans, particularly skinny jeans! I felt uncomfortable in mine around 12 weeks, but for some it's sooner than that and for some it's later. At that stage, you'll definitely want to start the fun that is shopping for maternity jeans. I have to say that my best maternity wear buy so far, are my New Look Skinny Maternity Jeans. I started wearing these around 12 weeks and am still wearing them now at 20 weeks and can see there's still plenty of room for growth. (more…)

Mothercare Maternity Bras – review
January 23, 2015 at 9:22 pm 0
One of the first things you may notice, when finding our you're pregnant, is the rapid nature in which your boobs change! I started to really notice mine around Week 8, when they ballooned in size, were fuller than ever and ached. My hubby was shocked at the rapid change, as was I, when I compared photos from a couple of weeks earlier. My regular bras no longer fit and the under-wiring felt restrictive and painful. But it felt too soon to be buying special underwear! But it wasn't! As soon as your body starts to change during pregnancy, you need to react to it and make yourself as comfortable as possible.

ASOS Maternity Clothes Haul

Within the first trimester, at around 9 weeks into my pregnancy, I was already beginning to realise the importance of maternity clothes. Although you may not be officially "showing", if you're anything like me, you're feeling bloated and your skinny jeans and high-waisted skirts are no longer entirely comfortable. I must admit, pre-12 weeks did feel a bit early to start purchasing maternity clothes, however, that's what they're there for and you have to wear clothes almost all day, so it's important to be comfy! Plus, there's the wonderful phenomenon of online shopping, so you don't even have to venture out to the shops and risk someone seeing you in the maternity section and discovering your "little secret".
