Our Family Baby Shower

One of the most exciting parts of the build up to the birth of the new arrival has to the baby shower, you know its the last time to get all your friends together for an afternoon of fun and laughter not to forget the cake eating! Although the preparations are a little exhausting if…

How Our Week’s Going Down

With roughly 6 weeks to go until the arrival of our new bundle of joy I’m getting more and more tired by the day. Keeping Gabriella occupied at home is getting to be very challenging. I think I’ve worked out the formula…variety is the spice of her life! The only problem is working out the…

Completely Puzzling

Finding activities that keep Gabriella entertained whilst I’m pregnant isn’t easy. Not only do I need a rest at times but I’ve still got 2 businesses on the go one which is about to launch as the baby arrives oh I do like a challenge so I’m constantly trying to find fun things for her…

What’s she like now?!

My beautiful baby girl is growing up so fast, Gabriella is a little girl now, she kindly reminds me i’m NOT a baby i’m Gabby! Much to my dismay she has chosen to shorten her own name to Gabby, since she’s been born I’ve made a point to tell everyone not to shorten her name,…

Guess What…

Yes, it’s true…I’m pregnant! It came as a bit of a surprise, a very welcomed one though so it’s taken me a little time to get used to. I’m now just over 5 months and very excited to welcome our new buddle of joy into our family. My goodness has it been exhausting, not only…

Burgers and Macaroons in Covent Garden

I’ve been feeling pretty lazy lately (for a good reason, which I will share with you later!). The overriding urge to eat hamburgers and crispy fries certainly encouraged me to leave the warm and toasty environment of home for the hustle and bustle of Covent Garden. I’ve been dying to try Shake Shack which have…

Happy Birthday to Me :-)

I’m not quite sure how I feel about birthdays these days. I’m still trying to get my head around the idea that your 30’s are the new 20’s. Although I’m not a fan of getting older I do love that age has given me a wonderful family to share special occasions with. Any how, I…

In Love With Her Garden

We are just loving the fabulous weather at the mo, I hope you are too?! It’s been a little bit bitter sweet this week, although we’ve had this amazingly beautiful weather we have all some how managed to pick up stomach flu. It’s not been possible for us to spend lazy afternoons in the park…

Favourite Summer Flats

I love flat shoes….now! Ask me that 3 years ago and I would have had a totally different opinion. Motherhood is definitely responsible for my change of heart! Hope you love my 2 favourite summer flats for this season as much as I do. My favourite of the 2 favourites has to be the nude…

Farmers Market Delights

One of my favourite things about moving to Hampstead is I’m now lucky enough to have a weekly farmers market each Wednesday on my road. I love to support local produce and British products where I can. It feels great that I can buy seasonal flowers and veggies which are all organic. Seeing all the…

Warm Salmon Nicoise Salad

The weather has been quite miserable and although we should be welcoming lovely evening salads It’s not been quite warm enough to have them completely cold in my opinion. Last night I created a warming twist on the traditional Salmon Nicoise, I roasted the new potatoes and green beans in olive oil and tossed these…

Welcome To My New Neighbourhood

I cant tell you all how sorry I am that my blog posts have been virtually not existent over the last 6 weeks. I completely underestimated the strength I would need moving house with a toddler! One thing’s for sure, I’ve learnt a lot….I now know that however much stuff you think your house stores…

Moving to Another Hill!

It’s been a little quiet from me over the last week or so. Not only am I about to launch a business I’m now in the middle of moving house. There just never seems to be a dull moment in my life lately. With 6 days to pack, move and find a new home with…

From Notting Hill to Portobello Road

After a quick trip to the seamstress for sample fittings for work this morning we decided to take a walk to Notting Hill. We popped into the newish Jamie Oliver Recipease shop. It’s quite amazing, it’s such an interactive store with cooking classes going on in a huge island kitchen in the middle of the…
