November 23, 2018
ab

There are so many sales going on right now… It’s hard to know where to start really! I wasn’t actually planning on putting together anything for Black Friday (or Cyber Month, rather), but then I thought I would do my duty and put together a really tight edit for you guys. Basically, I’ve done all the work for you in advance and trawled my 10 favourite retailers, picking out my 10 favourite pieces, across fashion, home & beauty… Hope this helps a bit!

TWO KEY LOOKS FOR COMFORT CHIC

November 16, 2018
FITFLOP (1 of 14)

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.

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

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…

STREAMLINING MY WARDROBE

June 22, 2018
STYLE-1 (5 of 12)

This type of outfit pretty much sums up my style at the moment (when I’m not in my Lululemon/Sweaty Betty fitness gear – which is pretty much 80% of the time, let’s be honest). It’s nice to make an effort when I finally do decide to dress up, but since becoming a mama, I have definitely become way more casual with my style, and I’m finding myself streamlining my wardrobe a lot – in terms of identifying what I’m wearing the most; which are more than often the pieces which are comfortable, great quality and super versatile…  Continue Reading

CASUAL FOR DAYS

Can you tell that I’m all about casual outfits at the moment? My style was always pretty relaxed anyways, and not surprisingly, it’s even more so now that I’m a full time mummy. Easy, soft, comfortable, and stylish (when possible) is the aim, and with that, it’s all about finding those core wardrobe staples to make that happen…

TWO KEY LOOKS FOR SPRING

April 23, 2018

red9For me, Spring has officially arrived when the blossoms are out. And especially now with the (much awaited) Spring heatwave – I am having all the new season feels, and I cannot wait to re-invent my wardrobe with lots of fresh new styles and colours (yes, you heard me – colour!). This time last year, I was just over 3 months pregnant, and although I hadn’t started showing by then, I wasn’t really in the mood to start investing in lots of new bits for my wardrobe, as I knew my body was changing week by week. So this year, now that I have finally reclaimed my body back, I am super excited to pick up some fun new styles for the warmer months ahead. And as always, I tend to start with the footwear and accessories…

HOW I’M KEEPING FIT ON-THE-GO

April 6, 2018
Facetune_04-04-2018-11-34-01

Firstly, happy International Walk to Work Day! Quite aptly, I’m tying in the theme of walking (and how to keep on top of your fitness levels on a day-to-day basis) in today’s blog post. I previously shared my Post-Baby Wellness Tips, where I mentioned my main reason for shedding the weight, being the simple (and free) fitness of walking. Since having Rio, I have never walked as much in my life, and it never stops. Be it for his daily sleeps, or just running errands, I’m constantly on the run with the pushchair. And albeit lots of times, I’m just in my skinny leggings and trainers; there are many occasions where I want to look stylish whilst at it. Click through for my tips to get walking enough every day (and which footwear I swear by for on-the-go in the city).

MY DUBAI HOLIDAY OUTFITS

March 28, 2018
IMG_0146

I’m having massive holiday blues at the moment, although I have totally no right to complain, as I had the most incredible time away… Everything was perfect, and all those fears of travelling with a 5 month old baby, quickly disappeared. Granted, we had help on hand with some family – but it really helped that we organised and planned everything in advance (I will be sharing my top baby travel tips very soon with you guys!) and stayed somewhere which was really family friendly. What I did found challenging this time around, however, was my own wardrobe… All the focus was naturally on Rio, so my holiday wardrobe was pulled together pretty last minute. Fortunately, I had done some last minute online orders – combined with some long standing wardrobe favourites of mine…

MY NURSING FRIENDLY STYLE EDIT

Hey fellow mamas (or mamas to be!). Apologies that this has taken a while to pull together (you know, life happens + a 5 month old baba!) – but here it is: a round up of all my favourite nursing friendly pieces (all affordable from the high street, of course), along with some style recommendations and tips. I’m not proclaiming to be a master expert by any means – as most of the time, I just tend to get on with it, and basically wear what I like. When that said, when I know I’m out and about for a full day, or I’m going to a restaurant/cafe to meet friends in public – I make sure I adjust accordingly to make the whole process easier – and have therefore rounded up the typical style of clothing, and pieces that I can’t live without when it comes to nursing out and about.

MINI STYLE FOR SPRING

March 9, 2018
Facetune_07-03-2018-21-05-37

There’s no real surprise that I have become pretty obsessed with Rio’s wardrobe (nearly as much as mine!). I’m loving discovering all the various kids brands (which is obviously a totally new territory for me), creating outfits and building a real look for our little man. Sam is pretty involved in his outfit choices too (already an evidence in Rio’s ever growing trainer collection!). We both have a pretty minimal and neutral style, and it’s not surprising that we’ve naturally conveyed that in terms of what brands and quality of clothing we have been investing in for Rio…

THE HIGH STREET JEANS I’M LOVING RIGHT NOW

February 23, 2018

I’m a jeans girl through and through, and especially since becoming a mama, I seem to be living in jeans near enough every day. And now that I’ve lost some of the baby weight, I’ve gone on a bit of a mad shopping spree with my jeans (which you might have noticed, if you follow me on Instagram and watch my recent InstaStories). As my body shape has naturally changed since being pregnant, I’ve only really been investing in more high waisted styles, which I find the most flattering. Here are the 5 jeans I am wearing on repeat at the moment, which are also all available on the high street right now.

MY MOST PRECIOUS METALS

January 31, 2018
jewellery (8 of 12)

As you might have already noticed, I’m very into my jewellery. Classic, timeless and mostly in gold. Dainty, but also statement styles. A mix of investment pieces that will last a life-time, combined with more affordable, contemporary styles… Although it might seem like a lot of jewellery on display here; in reality I am extremely picky and selective. I have acquired a lot of jewellery throughout my time, but these are the ones that have made the final cut this time; my most precious metals, and the pieces I keep wearing over, and over again…

KIND OF BACK

So it’s over 3 months since I became a mummy, and I’m finally getting back into the swing of things. I am by no means working full time (at all), but every now and again (when he sleeps, basically) – and I don’t have mounds of washing to do (which is a rarity!), and catching up on some general life/house/Rio admin – I try to make some time to stay creative. Be it write a bit, shoot some new bits, reply to some e-mails. Nothing major, but just keeping my foot slightly still in the game. But also, my foot firmly off the pedal, as I am still making the most out of this precious newborn bubble…

I say ‘my new take on…’, as since having my baby boy, my desk/work situation has slightly changed and there’s not been much dance floor action for myself as of late (understatement of the year!).

AUTUMN SUNSHINE

In my opinion, I don’t think there’s much that beats that first proper, crisp and sunny Autumn day… Don’t get me wrong, Summer is heaven – but after a long hot season, that special change of air, is definitely a welcoming delight. And I think perhaps that the transition to Autumn from Summer, is my all-time favourite seasonal switch… The colour change of the leaves, the beginning of the slightly cooler weather, the layers… Oh, and the fact that you can still get away with brights and transitional wardrobe pieces (point example in today’s blog post!).  Continue Reading

DATE NIGHT IN THE CITY

With my due date fast approaching, so many friends and family around us have been telling us to make the most out of the last few weeks as just us two. Although obviously, we cannot wait to meet our little man – it’s going to be a huge change in our lives, going from being just the two of us for over 9 years together (!), to starting a life as a trio. And whilst I have naturally been taking it a lot more easy in terms of slowing down with work and daily life in preparation for this huge life-change – a few weeks ago we decided to have a little last minute staycation in the city. Saturday night out, getting dressed up and going for a romantic dinner, just the two of us.
