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…

Gabriella’s Style…Now

Now that Gabriella can verbalise her likes and dislikes she doesn’t hold back about her wardrobe. I’m just thankful we share the same style choices! She loves bright colours, and yes, usually all mixed together in one outfit. I always ask her what she wants to wear, personally I think clothes can be quite a…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Rhubarb Crumble…How British!

A trip to the local farmers market and seeing piles of fresh British grown rhubarb totally inspired me to bake a rhubarb crumble. It’s one of the simplest deserts that always goes down well with the whole family. For the crumble: 200g plain flour 110g unsalted butter (cold from the fridge) 110g Golden caster sugar…

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…
