Where I live

I was given a copy of Dana Fox’s 365 Blog Topic Ideas for Christmas – it’s pretty much as it sounds, there is a different idea for a blog post on every page. As I’m currently getting minimal sleep and my days are all merging into one, I thought I’d use Dougie’s nap times to work…

Interview: Bonnie Pop Makes

Beautiful fabrics, fun patterns and handmade pieces, Bonnie Pop Makes is a small business run by Kayleigh, who makes baby clothes, bunting, bags and bibs. Dressing my baby up in new outfits each morning is definitely one of my favourite parts of the day, and I love it even more when the clothes are handmade…

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Last night I was lucky enough to be able to go and see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them before it was released. I’m a big fan of the Harry Potter books, but was never hugely taken with the film adaptions so I was really intrigued by Fantastic Beasts. Directed by David Yates, who directed…

Nursery tour

Planning the nursery was one of the most exciting parts of pregnancy, I had a whale of a time putting together a board on my Pinterest, and Sam and I had really similar ideas of what we wanted. Sam wanted to put the nursery together as a surprise for me and so I had absolutely no…

All the little things: August days

Happy September! I can’t believe it’s September. Due date is literally just a few days away, and I’m so ready to have this baby. I know it’s a few days late, but I wanted to keep up with my monthly snapshots. So, August!

Brighton

I wanted to spend the Bank Holiday doing something with Sam, as these are our last few days before the baby arrives (eeek!) so yesterday morning we headed to Brighton. The weather was lovely for most of the day. It got pretty cloudy during the afternoon but was still warm, and to be honest, I…

London summer days

The weather in London has been beautiful the last few days, and while the heat is exhausting and I’ve lost sight of my feet and ankles, I’m trying to make the most of my last few weeks of pregnancy/baby-free existence! I’ve just started my pre-maternity leave working from home stint, so I thought I’d share…

All the little things: July days

Happy August! This year is flying by. August means it’s just five weeks until…I think he’s a Pineapple this week…five weeks until Pineapple arrives. Although I currently feel like he’s trying to kick and punch his way out of my tummy so I wouldn’t be surprised if he made an early appearance…

Interview: MinaLima

Showcasing 15 years worth of award-winning, creative collaborative work, the House of MinaLima opened its doors at the beginning of this month. MinaLima is the design studio of Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, who first met in 2002 and worked together as graphic designers on the Harry Potter film franchise. They had the unique (and…

All the little things: May days

I can’t believe it’s the first of June today! This year is flying by… May was a pretty busy month, but a really lovely one. While there were some occasions that were bigger than others, I often find it’s the little things that really make something special, so I thought I’d do a quick snapshot…
