FITFLOP (9 of 14)


I’m sure I’ve just totally made up the phrase ‘comfort chic’, but it basically sums me up in a nut shell. Always striving to be comfortable, yet still trying to look slightly chic (if that’s even possible, with a one-year old in tow). Nevertheless, the intention is there most of the time anyways – especially during the weekend, when daddy day care kicks in, and I have a bit more time on my hands! I find Autumn a great month for a new wardrobe re-vamp; I’m so over denim shorts and sandals, and all I want is comfortable boots, cosy coats and layering of knitwear. November is also one of the best months for shopping, with so many amazing Black Friday deals to be had. So here I’ve pulled together two of my go-to looks, featuring some of my favourite (and most comfortable) footwear on sale right now.

DECORATING FOR AUTUMN

Autumn is by far my favourite season of the year. It’s certainly the cosiest, with all the leaves changing colour and the colder temperatures setting in. Although I’m a self-confessed water baby, I always look forward to Autumn the most. Especially after the long and steaming summer we’ve just had, it feels so good reaching for chunky knits and hibernating inside in front of the fire with a big mug of tea. I also love this season because of the fresh air and all the incredible colours, which is also why it’s the time that I’m the most inspired when it comes to my home. Every season is an excuse to re-decorate. Nothing too drastic or crazy; just adding a few new pieces, textures and colours, to add a bit more warmth and cosy feeling to the rooms you spend the most time in…  Continue Reading

MUMMY DIARIES: THE 12 MONTH UPDATE

November 9, 2018

I know I keep saying this every single update, but I really can’t fathom how fast this year has gone! This time last year Rio was only 3 weeks old, and I was in a total bubble of love and bliss (running on adrenalin), yet a degree of pain (breastfeeding/Mastitis), and totally overwhelmed. I now look back at this time and can truly say that, despite the discomfort I was in, it was probably the happiest I have ever been in my life – and if I could turn back time to this little bubble I was in with Rio, I would. That’s not to say I’m not happy now, but that precious time right in the beginning, was incredibly magical. So much has changed these past 12 months, and there’s been a lot of ups and downs, tests and trials every single day, and most notably, I have grown and developed more than I thought I would (in a good way). This is the last update for now (I might check in at 18 months, and will no doubt be covering certain subjects as well – make sure you e-mail or leave a comment with your requests!). So here goes, Rio and mummy at just gone 12 months.  Continue Reading

MY AUTUMN SKIN ESSENTIALS

October 24, 2018

My skin is usually pretty consistent… I get more pigmentation during the warmer months (hence why SPF50 is always a regular beauty staple of mine), and during the colder months, my skin is more dehydrated and dry. Fortunately I have tried and tested my fair share of beauty products over the years, and I’ve acquired many favourites during this time (and also distinguished which brands/products which don’t do much for my skin). For the colder months, it’s even more important to find the right products for your skin type, to help battle redness, lock in the moisture and keep it nice and supple – and here are the products I’m using right now…
