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 […]
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 and thank goodness for H&M vest tops and baggy jumpers but the one thing I have been struggling to get into is my faithful parka jacket. Sadly that zip just keeps getting harder to fasten so when Yummy Mummy Maternity contacted me to ask whether I would like to review something from their winter collection I couldn’t say yes faster.
They kindly sent me a Tikka Padded Double Zipped Maternity & Beyond Hooded Winter Coat in black.
At the moment I am wearing it without the extra zip section (super easy to attach/detach when you need to) which is ready and waiting for Bump to grow a little more. It’s incredibly warm and comfy I really like the style. Without the extra section it’s fitted and flattering.
It has a concealed hood in the collar which is easily unzipped one handed when you need it – super practical in a sudden downpour -but can be discreetly hidden away when it’s not needed. Enclosed it offers extra warmth around the back of the neck. The coat comes to just above the knee which is a really nice length and prevents that horrid chill at the bottom of your back shorter styles can often give.
There are three pockets on the outside, one breast and two side pockets. The depth of the side pockets are probably the only part of the coat that disappoints me – you can’t fit a mobile phone in them, let alone much else.
The Tikka coat is available at Yummy Mummy Maternity for £110 which qualifies for free delivery. It may seem a bit pricey to some, but for the quality and longevity (It’s perfect for wear after baby arrives) makes it worth it in my eyes.
Look out for my review of their occasion wear perfect for party season in the next couple of weeks.
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 […]
With just 32 days until we jet off on holiday to Mexico we have been doing some shopping – the best kind of shopping! I will most likely do a series of posts about what we’ve been buying but today I thought I’d share with you […]
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 seen some of my favorite fashion bloggers sporting some gorgeous statement pieces, I’ve been quite tempted to try!
Looking through their online shop this necklace immediately caught my eye. I really love the pretty design and the fact that it’s white/cream means that it will go with pretty much any outfit.
I was really impressed with the customer service provided by their social media team. Quick, helpful & professional yet chatty responses always make me confident that should there be a problem I can go straight to them to get it resolved as quickly as possible.Over all, I am really impressed and will definitely be logging back on to treat myself to some more goodies soon!
