We’re into the second week of picking our favourite outfits of the week to share with you (you can see our last Mama & Baby Style post here) and this week we’re loving ditsy florals & denim! Have I said before that I love dressing […]
As I neared the end of my pregnancy, it suddenly dawned on me that soon enough, I’d be able to wear normal clothes again without having to negotiate a big rock solid bump that often resembled a giant boiled egg as even my most comfortable […]
This time next week I will be home with my feet up after two hectic days at The Baby Show. I have been looking forward to my first Baby Show with a bump for so very long having previously attended to network as a business owner or as a volunteer for Kicks Count. It is known widely as the shopping event of the year for parents and parents to be and I’ve been saving up pennies in our baby fund since before bump even existed to take advantage of the fabulous range of products on offer and the exclusive show deals.
H O W, W H O & W H E N? | This year, I am heading to the Excel on two days of the show. On Friday, I will be travelling up to London by train with my friend and Bump Buddy Jennie – a complete baby show pro! I am so looking forward to spending the day with her. Our babies are due within weeks of each other so it will be lovely to have a full day of catching up properly ahead of their arrival. She also has such a vast knowledge of baby products and brands, I’m hoping to learn a lot from her.
On the Saturday, after a bridesmaid dress fitting (oooo let’s hope that dress fits this bump of mine!), Sean and I are going to drive back for day two. Our plan is not to leave until we’ve decided on & maybe even ordered a pram! We’ve had little to no luck in choosing one so far and so we plan on trying ALL of them properly.
W H A T ‘ S O N ? | I’m all for planning ahead and have already looked in to the events taking place while I’m there. There are two events that I would like to attend on the Friday, First Aid with the British Red Cross and the Lullaby Trust’s Safe Sleep Talk and I’d like to try and catch Clemmie Hooper – An Interview With on the Saturday. Sadly we’re likely going to miss Giovanna Fletcher’s talk.
W H A T I S O N M Y S H O P P I N G L I S T ? | I have already started a bit of a shopping list and a list of brands I’d like to meet. Of course first on my hit list will be Shnuggle. I’ve written before about my love for their genuinely clever baby products and am hoping to be able to catch a glimpse of their newest products, in particular their squishy changing mat, maternity sleepwear & the Dreami sleeper.
We’re also on the look out for…
A Travel System
Play Mat / Gym
I’m also planning on stopping by to visit Kicks Count & have a go on their charity tombola.
W H A T W I L L I W E A R? | I’ve purchased two outfits ahead of the show, one for each day. One of the keys to getting the most out of a day at The Baby Show is wearing comfortable and lightweight clothing but I also am not prepared to compromise on style either. I’ve picked out some maternity basics, perfect for mixing and matching, from my two favourite High Street retailers, H&M and New Look.
I’m hoping to film my weekend and turn it into my first ever vlog! The whole thought of this is a bit nerve racking but fingers crossed I stick to the plan.
It’s no secret that the weather has definitely taken a chilly turn and with this belly of mine getting bigger by the day and the days of squeezing into my stretchy size 10s are numbered for sure. I’ve fallen in love with maternity jeans and leggings […]
I really wasn’t sure what to expect. I’d seen photographs, read people’s stories, looked in awe at the transformations, but absolutely nothing in this world could have prepared me for the sense of calm you feel when you arrive. Walking through the door of the Red Shoe Studio […]

Are you going on holiday this Spring? Where have you been buying your Holiday clothes from?
A few weeks back I discovered a lovely little jewellery and fashion boutique website on twitter. Cherry Diva Jewellery were advertising their sale, and with it being so close to pay day, how could I resist a quick browse?I do not wear very much jewellery but having […]
