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…

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…

Mummy Loves… Organic Children by Green People

Gabriella and I have just left daddy at home and been on a much needed 4 week holiday. Before leaving I was thinking about all the things I will need, particularly for Gabriella. One of the items at the top of my list was a good suncream for Gabriella, one that actually works and doesn’t…

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…

One Of Our Favourite Spots…The Fountains

We are settling into life in Hampstead(apart from the fact of needing meeting some local mums for me and playmates for Gabriella!) moving location with a child has taken me a while to find my bearings and special little spots that are fun for both me and Gabriella. The outdoor fountains that Gabriella can play…

What’s in Gabriella’s Wash Bag?

It’s no secret that I love products. It’s been amazing to have an excuse to be opened up to the fabulous world of baby products by becoming a mother! Here’s a sneek peak at Gabriella’s bath time favourites. I couldn’t resist extended the post beyond its title to include some of her bath toys and…

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…

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…

Mummy Loves…Easter

I love Easter…I’m so excited that it’s around the corner. Looking out at the beautiful blossoms on the trees, daffodils on my desk and longer days starting to emerge, Easter is definitely in the air. Easter is not only about eating Easter Eggs until we feel sick but most importantly spending it with family. To…

Baby Lotions…Three Of My Favourites

It’s true, i’m a product lover! I’ve loved trying lots of different baby products for Gabriella. I’m sharing 3 of my favourite baby lotions with you. The most important thing I’ve learnt about choosing baby skin are products is it’s all in the ingredients. We all know its a bit difficult sometimes to take the…
