Looking Back

                                       {this beautiful picture of my girl was by S.Spear Photography}

I've really missed this.  This afternoon I spent an hour looking back at previous blog posts.  I have the kind of memory that means I could watch a film once a year, every year and feel like I'm watching it for the first time.  So you can imagine, I'm having a complete out of body experience reading my own blog posts! Did I really write that?! 
I've let this year consume me.  The arrival of a baby - my first, was a CRAZY life change to say the least.  Not only that - my business took off completely and whilst both things are positives, I found myself being (rightly) overwhelmed. 

Getting back to the things I truly love - like writing in my diary (my blog) is something that I have to make time for.  Even just to save my own memories.

Mommore Changing Bag Review


Before we had our baby, I found choosing a changing bag one of the hardest things to do.  I had no hands on experience of what it was like to be a mum, so in turn I had no idea what my requirements in a changing bag would be.  Safe to say, when our baby Freya actually arrived I wasn't enamoured with the bag we were using (it came in a package with our pram).  So when I was contacted by Mommore to choose a bag to review I felt like I had nothing to lose.

This bag is a game changer.

It has SO many features, including one that I think is GENIUS (watch the video below to find out what it is).  The design is great and something me and my husband can both wear easily. It also comes in a couple of other colours which are gorgeous. I was also super surprised at the pricing - the bag only costs $62 (just over £45) which is amazing and a lot less than comparable bags on the market.  Check out the full review below!

Organic Baby Clothing by Naturally Tee


After what seems like the longest pregnancy ever (I went 16 days overdue - more on that in a future post!), little Freya Rose is finally here! 

Anyone who knows me, knows that I try my hardest in life to make what I feel to be the right choices in everything I do. So when Naturally Tee contacted me to review their products I immediately jumped at the chance! Naturally Tee uses Fair Trade, organic African cotton that is not only good for the environment but soft and comfortable for my baby's delicate skin.

I was very impressed with the feel and quality of the items, which included the sweetest hat (pictured on Freya here) a bib and a super soft t-shirt.  The quality and finish of the items are of great quality and just knowing that they're gentle on my baby's skin makes them even better.

Candy Cane Christmas Tree


Ok, so I know it may be (is) a tad early to be decorating for Christmas but the truth is, I've been fighting the urge to decorate for a good month already! Blame the nesting (I blame everything on the nesting). But seriously, I have 2 legitimate reasons for starting the festive period early this year:

1. I have a human that I've been growing for the last 8.5 months arriving shortly and: 
2.  This gives you guys enough time to take inspiration for your decor this year!

So my theme started from the humble candy cane this year, and spiralled into something you see in these pictures! It's fair to say I did definitely go overboard with the oversized ornaments but I really think it gives my (otherwise sparse) tree a really full look and I love it! Another decision I made was to also forgo a star as my tree topper and use these giant glittery poinsettia flowers to add a little bit more of an impact. 

Click the video at the end of this post to see me decorate and explain in more detail!

Baby Girl Nursery Tour | Baby Blogs


So it's here! I'm so glad I got this video up finally - I did wonder whether i would before our baby girl actually made an appearance!

There are a few touches {mainly a floor lamp behind the chair} I still want to add but overall i'm happy with the way it turned out and I hope it gives you some inspiration if you're currently decorating a nursery.

Let me know if you want to see more home decor posts/videos from me - I'm currently in the process of updating our kitchen!
