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

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…

MY TOP BABY BUYS: 0-6 MONTHS

October 17, 2018

Rio has just turned 1 years old (HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?!), and one of the things I get so many messages about from fellow mum’s or new mum’s-to-be – is a list of all my top baby buys from the very beginning up until they’re around 6 months. There are so many things people recommend, so many different products and gadgets you get told to buy or that you just have to have. Granted, there were a lot of things that proved to be useful to me, but also a lot of stuff which I didn’t really get using! Being a parent is already costly enough (especially in the beginning when you just consume like mad, without really knowing what you’ll end up using), so I thought I would pull together my personal must-have essentials the first 6 months. I know this list might seem a bit overwhelming at first, but please know that you don’t have to have to own all of these things – this is just what I personally found very useful. So take from it what you want, and leave me a comment below if you have any questions!  Continue Reading
