Before Motherhood...




I never realised...

1. Vests have envelope sleeves so they can be taken down. I wish I had known this before I tried to carefully take off a poo infused vest over Max's head!

2. Sleeping until 7am would be classed as a lie in. 

3. My washing machine would constantly be on. What ever happened to just 2 loads a week, now it's more like 2 loads a day. Minimum.

4. How someone's poo can be so fascinating. I can talk about Max's poos all day. What colour it is, how solid it is, how many times he goes in a day. Yuck I know!

5. How much I can do one handed. Emptying the dishwasher, making bottles, getting dressed..

6. I can now make a song and dance out of everything, his poos, smiles, when he's eating. I must have sang 'Let it go' about a zillion times. 

7. Baby wipes are my best friend. I use them for everything! 

8.  And finally, how a little human being can be the centre of your world and you're the centre of their universe. Nothing can prepare you for the love you have for your child, and it's crazy how your love can grow each and everyday.

My Lust List #1



With Christmas fast approaching I thought I would put the feelers out, hopefully with the possibility of Freddie stumbling across this post. There's no better hint than a whole blog post dedicated to what I'm lusting over at the moment. Be warned I have expensive taste! 

(From left to right, top to bottom)

1. I've always been a keen baker and enjoyed baking tasty cakes, cupcakes and bread. However since having Max I rarely have the time to do anything! A kitchen aid for me would be brilliant to whip something up without having to stand and whisk everything up using a wood spoon. This pistachio green colour would make the perfect addition to my kitchen.

2. Diptyque, Figuier Candle is my ultimate indulgent candle. There's nothing better on a winters day like running yourself a hot bath with this gorgeous candle flickering as you relax. It honestly smells divine. 

3. I've always been a huge fan of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley lingerie/loungewear range in M&S and I find myself lusting over the PJs more than anything. I stumbled across this satin onesie had just had to put it on my list. I can picture myself now, cold winters evening, by the fire in this onesie. Heaven.

4. I need a watch, my phone is constantly on 5% battery and whilst being out and about I need the time to hand especially as Max feeds like clock work. What I love about Daniel Wellington watches are they have this classic expensive look, I adore the dark brown leather strap and the rose gold detailing.

5. From the packaging to the gorgeous range of make up I NEED to own something from Charlotte Tilbury. There's no better item to own, than a gorgeous matt dark red wine coloured lipstick. The colour Glastonberry is perfect for the upcoming party season.

6. It's all about the turtle neck this season and I've fallen head over heels for this H&M number. What I like about this jumper is it can be dressed up or even worn down, which is perfect for us mummies out there.

7. Last but by all means least is the beauty bloggers favourite, Glam Glow Thirsty Mud Mask. Promising to hydrate, restore, replenish and calm the skin this is top of my list for helping my tired lacklustre mummy skin.

What's on your lust list at the moment?

MY FIRST YOUTUBE VIDEO!





I'm venturing out onto YouTube, eek! To be honest I was quite nervous about putting this up but I love watching YouTube videos so thought I might as well give it a go!

This week I met up with a few other fellow mummy vloggers/bloggers and went for a pretty stroll around Richmond, which kind of turned into a pub crawl haha! It was so nice to meet the other Mummies, we talk every single day on twitter etc so it was lovely to meet them and their cute babies in person.

I really do hope you enjoy MY VLOG and I would love it if you all subscribed to my channel :) I will be posting new vlogs every weekend!
