I love nothing more than wearing something that gives me an amazing feel-good factor… and what better way to get this fix than with a humorous VB jumper with a dash of fab detailing.  I’ve always been a fan of Victoria Beckham, having been lucky enough to be the ‘fit model’ for her sought after clothing line for many years.  She is just lovely, and multi-talented to boot.  Her iconic Victoria Beckham collection is packed full of classic, beautifully tailored pieces and now her Victoria, Victoria Beckham range has come up with this awesome piece….  how can you not love this “Hot Lips” jumper?!

As much as I love hitting the fancy stores for some fancy make up, it is sometimes the high street stores that come up trumps in the make up department.  Sometimes, something as simple as finding that cheap lipstick that only costs £6.99 and makes me feel like a million dollars, can put me back on track after an exhausting morning where all three boys have moaned non stop since 5:30am.  Yes, I am looking at you, Max, Leo and Xander!  After discovering this little nude, high street lippie, hitting that local Superdrug in between a run to Sainsbury’s and the Post Office has never felt so good!

I was first introduced to BAM through my husband – and now it gets my heart racing on so many levels!  BAM creates all its clothes from Bamboo, and this unique USP not only makes it fashionable, but also environmentally sustainable.
Throwaway, fast fashion can be damaging to our precious ecosystem, and whilst mass produced cheap high street bargains may hit the spot – for me, discovering a brand whose ethos is to do good in the world, whilst also leaving nothing more than brilliantly comfy clothing as its carbon footprint, is exciting stuff.

We love discovering and supporting up and coming British brands, and we recently happened to stumble upon the brilliant designer Justine Tabak.  Having worked as creative director at Fendi, Laura Ashley and M&S (to name but a few), she set up her fledging namesake label, Justine Tabak, where all the pieces are sourced and made in the UK.  Justine only works with small British manufacturers, and her love and attention to detail is reflected in her beautifully made clothes.  She finds inspiration for her clothing collections from across the British Isles, scouring the lengths and breadths of the country for new ideas.    We have totally fallen in love with her collection, and one top in particular, stole our hearts!

I was prepared for the post-baby ‘jiggly bell’, for the saggy boobs, and the tired peepers peering out from under-eye suitcases.  But one thing I wasn’t prepared for during and after my three pregnancies was the post partum hair loss.  Then, to exacerbate the matter, once I had got my head around the fact that my once lustrous tresses were a shadow of their former selves, then came along the charming baby hair regrowth.  This was not subtle – in fact it looked like I had purposefully cut a tiny fringe, into two little devil horns at the front of my head.  Not a good look.

We are delighted to announce that we have teamed up with the wonderfully talented nutritionist, Diana Warrings of Irma Green Nutrition to bring you lots of delicious and nutritious recipes and ideas for cooking for kids, hubbies, friends and yourself.  We were lucky enough to meet Diana over ten years ago when she worked as our booking agent at Storm Models getting us both lots of great modelling jobs, and we kept in touch with her over the years as she retrained as a nutritionist.  Her lovely, easy going manner is reflected in her healthy recipes and she is a font of knowledge of all things edible and nutritious.

One of the greatest blessings from working in the fashion industry has been the truly eclectic mix of people we have met and been lucky enough to develop great friendships with.  As mere minnows grappling with the world of castings, options, and go sees, the modelling world can very, very cold and cut-throat.  We truly believe that it is thanks to the friends we have made along the way that we were able to see the better side of modelling rather than the negative side.

The blogging world is now full to excess with wannabe bloggers and self crowned “style leaders”.  In an already saturated market, there is one blogger who paved way before anyone even knew what “wordpress” was, and who has been trail blazing her way through the blogging stratosphere.  That lady is Jules Sarinana of Sincerely Jules.

I am a gal who likes nothing better than taking time out for a manicure.  I have, however, on many occasions found myself unable to take this time out when life and children get in the way.  Well, move over ‘time-pressed mamas’, may I introduce the ‘last minute pseudo manicure.’  I have just discovered the world of new and improved fake, press on nails!

Before I had my three boys, I never thought I would write a sentence that contained the phrase…”I have found the perfect school run outfit.”  The sentence in itself sounds awful; and also appears to demonstrate that you actually care what people think of you whilst dropping off your kids at 8 am in the morning!

However, now that I am a mum – I have come to realise that the ‘perfect school run outfit’ isn’t just about making you look good, it’s all about making you feel good.  And If you feel great, then chances are, your day has started off on the right foot. Continue Reading
