MY TOP ESSENTIAL 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

TOP 5 HIGH STREET COATS

September 28, 2018
Processed with VSCO with v6 preset

Hands down – the best part of the colder weather is finally being able to start shopping for winter coats! I’m not going to to lie, I’m a total coats and jackets hoarder. It’s the one item and category I have the most of in my wardrobe. I’ve always found it the most important piece of your outfit to really pull a look together (even in the warmer months, with leather and khaki jackets). Although my favorite time to shop and start investing in outerwear is definitely for the Winter season – especially when there are so many amazing (and affordable) styles out there right now! Here are the 5 coats on the high street I’m planning on investing in for the season…  Continue Reading

MUMMY DIARIES: THE 10/11 MONTH UPDATE

September 20, 2018
Processed with VSCO with v6 preset

Another two months has gone by, so again I decided it would be easier to compile month 10 and 11 together this time as well. I mean, since Rio’s been on the move, I feel like I haven’t sat down to rest for weeks and weeks! It’s been so full on, with days and months going into one another, and I can safely say that I’ve never been this tired in my life. Not just mentally, but physically, as Rio’s such a big boy. Don’t get me wrong, I love that he’s so solid, strong and healthy – but it’s been pretty heavy and strenuous for me (especially with him going through the most intense separation anxiety for the past few months). When that said, these past few months have been so much more fun and rewarding! Yes, even though it’s been a quite tiring with the constant clinginess – it’s still pretty amazing that he now fully knows who I am, and although he’s a super active and boisterous boy, it’s been so much fun seeing him develop at such speed. So read on for all the various updates, news and any advice I’ll be sharing from the past few months – including his new routine, a sleep update, some breastfeeding news, a typical meal plan for Rio, his favourite toys and activities, including some personal wellness updates which are making all the difference to my health…

AUTUMN DAYS WITH RIO

September 17, 2018

I’m not saying I’m happy that summer has come to an end, however there’s big part of me that is super excited about it being autumn; a new season, that exciting feeling of newness all around, and most importantly, more cozy times with my favourite little chap. Summer was so hot for the both of us (not so fun when you’re stuck in a steaming city with no breeze), so I think it’s fair to say that the slightly cooler autumn season is going to be just perfect. Be it snuggled up at home, or crisp strolls around our neighbourhood…
