NEW BLOG POST - One of those weeks
Just two things – these lace up sleeves are rocking my world and these sneakers have rose gold hardware, rose gold I tell ya, beautiful. Well done MINT VELVET, you’re more on the ball than me...

p.s. I forgot my dog. And a handbag. True story.
Maybe the best high street knit of the season on the blog right now - http://www.thankfifi.com/2017/09/red-cable-knit-cardigan/
NEW BLOG POST - Big red
Oh man, fall is here. Or autumn… instagram americanisms are permeating my impressionable mind. The air is cooler and the leaves are turning. And we could be woeful about the end of summer OR we could embrace the red and the chunky knits and the copious hot chocolates on the horizon...

NEW BLOG POST - Blank canvas - adding personality
The thing about moving into a new home is that it can take time to feel like ‘you’... Adding personality and warmth with details from TK Maxx who have an extra big delivery of lighting across Scotland and online right now (so I'm living out my Barbados colonial interior dreams)...
Question : If I owned seven pairs of denim dungarees would that be too many?

NEW BLOG POST - Keepers
In some ways it seems kinda crazy to do a newborn shoot when we have a great camera and no doubt will take 1,045,802 photos of Hunter (before his first birthday)… but I wanted some keepers. So I did what any millennial would do and I googled. I found Julie Vance Photography. And she nailed it...
NEW BLOG POST - We've moved
We've moved. Not domain name… like an actual real life move. To a proper house. In the country. We are grown ups now...

🌿 M a m a G i v e a w a y 🌿 So happy to partner with Figleaves to offer one lucky mama the choice of a nursing/maternity set!

In love with this gorgeous lace set from Figleaves - the struggle of finding pretty maternity and nursing bras is real (if there's ever a time in our lives when we need an extra little boost, it's now!)...
NEW BLOG POST - Back to basics http://www.thankfifi.com/2017/09/back-to-basics/
Back to basics… stripes and denim. But these stripes are on a new level with ruffle sleeves – like a classic breton, only better...

NEW BLOG POST - Home tour - the living room
The home tour continues… which somehow seems a little strange considering the Thankfifi Home is on the move. But life has been hectic and we got some catching up to do. So first things first, let’s finish this home tour...
6, 7, 8 and 9 months pregnant to 1 month old – I will forever be in awe of women’s bodies, that some of us are lucky enough to grow babies and get them out…
The story of Hunter's birth on the blog this week -
NEW BLOG POST - Summer heroes - part II
Yeah, these guys again… I just got so much love for the Chloe wedges and basket bags. These are my summer heroes from Zalando..

NEW BLOG POST - 1 month on - my birth story
The whooooole story - it might not always be a pretty story but it's the true story...
NEW BLOG POST - Hands full
Hands full but moving forward with the Joolz Geo which is possibly loved by the husband even more than me (hello tan leather trims and four wheel suspension)…
Life right now - never too many muslin cloths...
More on the blog at thankfifi.com this week - including his first haul and the shoot that took three attempts to complete which finally came to fruition with Hunter strapped to the husband's front in the baby carrier whilst he went to work with the camera...
NEW BLOG POST - His first haul...
It was only a matter of time before he had his first haul right? And with a massive drop of kids clothing in TK Maxx at the moment, now was the time… We’re burning through clothes at a rapid rate in the Thankfifi home at the moment with Hunter outgrowing outfits from one day to the next (I swear I shed a small tear when I had to accept that the first teeny tiny suit really didn’t fit this week)...

NEW BLOG POST - Summer heroes with Zalando (aka bargain Chloe wedges & another basket bag)
Surely it is undeniable that the trend of the summer is the basket bag. S’oh yeah’, I might be just another cliché...
S u n d a y F u n d a y 🐻🐼🌿👶🏻 Tested out the Ergobaby UK 360 carrier on our first family walk in the country today - the sun came out and we walked round the loch for an hour without a hitch (last time I did that walk I was 8.5 months pregnant and super uncomfortable so today was a nice change!) and the best bit about the carrier? I can kiss his little head every 5 seconds if i want to... and I do.
NEW BLOG POST - Home tour - boho nursery corner http://www.thankfifi.com/2017/07/home-tour-boho-nursery-corner/
For the first couple months at least Hunter’s nursery is a corner in our bedroom...
Twinning with my tiny in blue and white linen from TK Maxx on the blog right now - http://www.thankfifi.com/2017/07/summer-essentials-with-tk-maxx/
NEW BLOG POST - Summer essentials with TK Maxx
Hooray for regular clothes! I can’t even tell you how good it feels to be out and about and like myself again (only with the addition of the best little guy in the world). Some of my old clothes fit on but the style doesn’t feel quite right you know? Anyway… nothing a little TK Maxx haul couldn’t fix...
T r i b e 👶🏻🐻🐼 All my boys... (and one behind the lens)
1 W e e k 🙌🏻 Probably the best week of my entire life - everything has changed and yet it all feels 'normal' - like he's really meant to be here with us | The love is unreal ❤️
M o m J e a n s 🙌🏻 I never really got the appeal of high waisted mom jeans... but now I SO get it - amen to jeans that hold you in in all the right places!
P r a m L i f e 🏁 Test driving the new Joolz wheels...
C o m p l e t e ❤️ Never before have I felt a love like this... | Hunter arrived safely a few days ago and, honestly, nothing can prepare you for the love you feel the moment you set eyes on the tiny person you've been growing for nine months - every time I look at him my heart is close to bursting. Our little family is complete ❤️
NEW BLOG POST - Nine months http://www.thankfifi.com/2017/07/nine-month-baby-bump/
Thoughts on the nine month mark in today's post...
There is nothing left to prepare… and yet I still feel completely unprepared for what lies ahead…
NEW BLOG POST - The hospital dash
It’s the strangest thing knowing that something so huge is on the horizon… and yet not knowing when. Much to the husband’s relief my hospital bag is finally packed, save the going home outfit which proves to be somewhat elusive – online searches reveal that something loose and comfortable will be best and yet I can’t get images of Kate beaming at the hospital exit, perfectly coiffed and beautiful… In any case, there’s a good chance my ‘going home outfit’ might well wind up being my going in outfit but in the meantime I wanted to share some of my essentials, the ones I know for sure are coming with me…
Including No+mi London, Next, Sudio, Panache Lingerie, Jo Malone London, Alex Carro Skincare, Sanctuary
Ready for the little one to arrive now...
Big love for this bra from Panache Lingerie - honestly finding pretty pieces and dealing with the, erm, body changes (a D to a G my friends!) has been a challenge but I'm feeling a lot happier now I've got the undies sorted! Just tell me they won't get any bigger???

NEW BLOG POST - Simple summer soundtrack
Keeping things simple at this stage to be completely honest… a jersey jumpsuit that pulls on and off in one shot and footwear I can slip on and off all by myself. Flip flops are the business and these iQushions from FitFlop are like walking on air…

NEW BLOG POST - Home tour - boho bedroom makeover

p.s. What do you think of the half painted wall? Colour is Studio Green by Farrow & Ball
Remember those sweatshirts with the tiger head that everyone (or was it just me?) really craved a couple years back? Well, Flannels Fashion opened a new store at Silverburn last week and the moment my eyes met these espadrilles, with those embroidered tiger heads, it was love. Dreams. Come. True. And you know what else? For a hundred bucks I bet they get way more wear than one of those sweatshirts ever would have…
