That face... Just gonna say - he tried avocado this week and his face was basically the opposite of this, haha!
Got the epic full body bib (aka painting apron) from Cath Kidston along with a bunch of pretty awesome Christmas gifts | Have a lookie at the blog post over here -
M e T i m e 🛁 Weekends mean time to finish a cup of tea and relax in a bathful of bubbles c/o Gordon Castle Scotland - if you know me at all you know I love all things floral and this Flower Garden range is literally made using botanicals grown in the castle’s own walled garden in Scotland - I mean...

NEW BLOG POST - 'Tis the season to twinkle twinkle
Recently I was treated to a trip to the new Cath Kidston Edinburgh store to finish off my festive shopping – first year in our new home and I am literally obsessed with Christmas so sorry (not sorry) that I am all about the sparkles and the pressies right now...
R e a d y 🎁 To get my Christmas on! Home to -5 degrees and opened this box of coziness from Powder : snuggly poncho + super long socks + the best ‘Wendy’ fedora + baby fox sox & hat 🦊 (And that packaging is ON POINT)
And they’re an amazing homegrown brand to boot | Check them out here - powder-uk.com

P.s. Dress is Issa by House of Fraser and you’re seeing it from the back only because before I even got out the car Hunter puked right down the front of it... and it’s silk 😭
NEW BLOG POST - A Christmas gift haul of ridiculous possibilities
Home and ALL about Christmas now! Sharing my top tips for shopping gifts at TK Maxx and why you need an 'emergency' gift (trust me)...
P u s h i n 🌿 All about dem free workouts... | For sure spent more time walking this week than lying by the pool - turns out holidays with a baby are, em, different | Eternally grateful for this Nuna UK Pepp travel pram which has been walked mile upon mile around the Costa Adeje - up hills for those free workouts, along the coast for iced coffees and to keep him entertained, he’s sat in it and played with toys on the balcony whilst we’ve had breakfast and lunch and so happy it reclines completely flat because it’s been his bed a few nights while we’ve enjoyed a peaceful dinner out so I guess he thinks it’s pretty comfy! #myNuna

NEW BLOG POST - Weekends with the Joolz Geo
So it feels like we’re getting the hang of this village in the country thing…
A mini review of the Joolz Geo pram, remembering that day when I thought I wasn't mother material and a look at our Sunday in the country...

NEW BLOG POST - Rained off
Kicking the week off with a pretty basic rainy day look and feeling wholly uninspired by this weather…
Did you catch the first look at our new home?
So it seems a mid-century, colonial, boho mashup is my interiors jam right now with a touch of quirky animal themed pieces thrown in for good measure...

When you buy what can only be described as a gown, because it’s just too pretty with its big obi bow and its chopped up hem, and you want to get a bit of mileage from it…

NEW BLOG POST - Post baby fitness - what works for me
On my belly button's permanent state of confusion, finally getting a damn good sports bra and, at 4 months on, what's working for me...
With Panache Lingerie
H o m e ✨ Spent all weekend in the front room after sanding the old grimy floorboards and FINALLY hanging this beaut of a light - after two months with a naked bulb dangling from the ceiling and a looong search during which I eventually had to concede that our new ceilings could not accommodate a 1.2m drop light, I found this beauty at Cotterell & Co when I popped in for a shade for a table lamp (I fell in love and managed to convince them to unwire it from their own ceiling because I just couldn’t wait 10 days for it to get ordered in 🙈)
NEW BLOG POST - When all that's left of ERDEMxHM is the socks
When all that’s left of the ERDEMxH&M collab is the socks… and you gotta buy them because you’re such a sucker for the marketing that £25 for a couple pairs of socks seems completely reasonable...
B e d D a y 💤 Don’t mind if we just stay here all day... | Every day, underneath it all, Panache Lingerie

NEW BLOG POST - Home tour - the family room
Welcome home. I never thought that this move would be ‘the move’, the forever home, but one room complete and it feels so right, you know? After our offer was accepted (ok, actually way before then), we were pouring over the Rightmove images and had a plan for this room (which was a burgundy dining room) if nothing else...
I D o S t i l l H a v e D o g s 🍂 But against all the odds... I’m one of THOSE mums - you know, the ones that think they won’t fill their feed with their baby, but they’re wrong? | Continuing this week’s twinning theme...
NEW BLOG POST - Party twins
Imagine two friends shopping TK Maxx's extra big party delivery for a little birthday night out. And somehow, without a hint as to what the other has chosen, we end up twinning. That is true friendship right there...
NEW BLOG POST - On slogan tees... and that email about my teeth
I think the title just about sums it up...
Sorry for the baby spam but I literally could not be more in love (it’s true what they say) and this wee face in that hat is just too much…

NEW BLOG POST - Playdate
Just the two of us, on an autumn playdate, crunching through those leaves, twinning in that colour...
Sidenote - these are the first ever pleather leggings I have owned and they are seriously good - like not too shiny, perfectly high waisted flattering fit, less than £30 good (just goes to show why you should never say never) - Shop them here - http://rstyle.me/iA-n/cs4hidm5ue_

NEW BLOG POST - Getting the Luxe Oil treatment
Post baby hair and breaking out of the topknot funk with mega watt shine hair thanks to Sassoon Salon Luxe Oil treatment...
N e w D o ✨ Got my hair did... | Yesterday I got my hair done Sassoon Salon for the first time in 4 1/2 months and when I got home the husband already had potato dauphinois prepared to go in the oven and steaks to go on the griddle so I got all dressed up (well, with slippers, but still) and we lit the fire in this new home of ours and drank wine and had a good ol' proper date night while the baba slept upstairs and the dogs lay by the hearth and it felt goooood...

Taking Hunter for his second set of vaccinations this morning which I am absolutely dreading (last time we both cried), then leaving him with my mum while I walk the dogs before heading into town to shoot with the husband at lunchtime, then the plan is to find a nice quiet spot to put the finishing touches on my presentation for this evening's blogging and social media event with Cultural Enterprise Office (last few tickets avail here - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/like-tweet-post-social-media-blogging-for-creatives-tickets-38536638122) which kicks off at 5pm... I have NO CLUE what I'm wearing and there's about a 50/50 chance I'll have brushed my hair | Ph. Julie Vance Photography
NEW BLOG POST - Warm spice
The coat, in my opinion, to end the search for the perfect AW coat. The colour is actually called ‘warm spice’ and if this season could be embodied by a colour this, surely, is it. The fit is honestly amazing and the quality is as good as any designer coat you could hope to get your mitts on. And it’s a classic but still has those details, you know? Jigsaw do good coat...

NEW BLOG POST - Practical mum purchase
Surely fine knit over the knee sock boots are something I’ll get a heck of a lotta wear out of as a new mum? When not out on unreasonably fashionable country walks with pram and dogs, their uses are virtually endless – lay empty sock boot around baby’s neck as a bib, craft sock boot puppets, wine bottle holders, arm warmers with stiletto weapon attachment, Christmas stockings… ENDLESS. Money well spent. Obviously.

NEW BLOG POST - Dressing up undressed walls
After last week’s casual confessions it only seemed fair that I dress these Ottoman Hands jewels up a little, you know, make an effort, just for me… and my walls...
