My 1st Years – Gifts For New Babies

What’s one of the best bits about having babies? The talcum powder smell, the love and joy they give you, the fun you have with them? Noooo, one of the best bits about babies is shopping for them! Unfortunately my two just keep growing and growing (grrr – but my gosh weren’t they gorgeous?!) so Baby […]…

Shoe Shopping For Kids With Dr. Martens

We love shoes in our house. I love them because, well, I just do. Flats, heels boots… I’ll take ‘em all. Elfie loves shoes as sparkly as she can get; pink monstrosities that I always vowed I’d never buy a daughter of mine until I was won over by the sensibilities of Clarks. Damn you, […]…


All About My Undercrackers

It’s been noted here how taking care of what’s happening on the inside – paleo, juicing, the gym and all that jazz – is making me a happier person. After a week of spectacularly falling off the wagon in Amsterdam and devouring piles of bread, cheeseburgers and chips I came home a couple of pounds […]…


The AW13 Mumiform

The Lifesaving Hairdryer

  Do you own the hairdryer? I don’t mean do you own A hairdryer, I mean THE hairdryer. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Read on… Pre-kids and during Elfie’s first couple of years I was a bit of a Brazilian Blowdry fanatic. Pricey, yes (I paid up to £200 a pop), but when I […]…


Gift Ideas: My Favourite Necklaces

L-R: Pipe Dreams, Lazy Giraffe, Molly Brown London, Paper and Chain I am a big necklace fan. By which I mean I LOVE necklaces, and also like BIG necklaces. But as statement neckwear is not very appropriate when you’re in possession of a chest-headbutting baby who doesn’t have control of their own neck I’ve had to re-think […]…

What I’m Wearing For Winter

It is surprising how, once you give birth, your attitude to so many things changes. I was adamant this wouldn’t happen to me but it’s completely inevitable and there’s nothing you can do to stop it. Since I have had my babies I feel hugely different about travel, working, family, keeping fit, food, friendships… so […]…
