Maternity style goes techno

IMG_1488-0.JPG

Isn’t technology just incredible? I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve said “how did our mothers cope without….”, from iPads (yep, guilty!) to baby monitors (an essential) and advances in medical knowledge and machines which check our unborn babies are doing all right in our expanding tums. What if technology stretched further than […]

In this, the first post of 2015 we’re looking at one of those key pieces you should already have in your wardrobe.  The white shirt is one of those items that always appears on lists of wardrobe essentials and whether you have one already which you love or you need to fill that gap in […]

Helen Moore faux fur & skating at Somerset House

OK, so the skating bit was more observational on my part than actually donning the boots and stepping onto the ice but I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to the potential for injury and as I’m more than a little clumsy I thought it best to just take in the festive atmosphere […]

The festive edit

M&Co. asked me to put together a festive edit featuring my top 10 picks to see you through to the end of the year.  I mention them fairly regularly on here as they have some real gems on the website and at an affordable price – each item here is under £60.  So without further […]

Any brand which features stripes as their signature is a favourite in my book and when a designer collaboration is mentioned, my style radar really sounds the alarm.  Tomorrow Petit Bateau launch their second collaboration in as many months (did you see the adorable Petit Bateau x Fifi Lapin tees?) and this time it’s with […]

Christmas jumpers: your festive must-have

christmas jumper day

You can’t have missed that this Friday is Christmas Jumper Day, a relatively recent annual event to raise funds for Save The Children, a great cause.  I’m sure many schools and nurseries, like ours, will be encouraging little ones to rock up in their best festive knit for a donation to charity.  Of course you […]

Coco Mama meets | Mini Madam & Mini Gent

MM&MG

I love hearing about new start-ups by mums who’ve been inspired by their experiences of motherhood to create something new or unique.  As well all know, becoming a mum does give you a new perspective on life, and how many times have you thought ‘I wish I could buy…’ or ‘I wish someone made…’. One […]
