Bags of Non-Confiscatable Airport Fun

Our summer holiday had started so well. We got to the airport, one that can only loosely be described as being in London, on time ( 4:45 am), and got to security without any major drama or meltdown. To avoid meltdowns because of tired little legs, we decided to take the buggy and two scooters. Big … Continue Reading

Badda Boom, Badda BAM

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 … Continue Reading

Brow Pal

I’m constantly searching for what I like to call: ‘minimal effort make up tips’.  Some people love makeup and the ritual of re-applying it throughout the day – but that is not something I subscribe to. For me, applying make up once in the morning is more than enough; unless I’m heading out that evening to … Continue Reading

Home Grown Fun.

Growing up spending Sunday lunches at my grandparent’s house feasting on roast potatoes, lamb, and stuffing with all the trimmings, are fond memories I reminisce on to this day.  Those memories are intrinsically linked to helping my grandfather in his vegetable patch in the garden – where picking, trimming and then cooking our haul of vegetables … Continue Reading

Is Mama Cool Again?

Now that my pre-children life of everyday castings, jetting around the world, and working alongside the crème de la crème of the fashion world is over – the majority of my wardrobe is now useless and underused when faced with the daily rigmarole of being a mum.  Goodbye high heels and dry clean only clothes, … Continue Reading

Unfry My Brain

Having children fries your brain in a way that no amount of partying in your previous life can account for. Sleepless nights, 4:45am wake up calls, weaning issues, getting to work on time, the constant worry about the kids…all this leaves little room in the cerebellum for anything else except a quick browse of … Continue Reading

Tired Mum Tips

Getting out the door with the three kids in tow is no mean feat. Feeling smug that I have managed to get all three boys up and out the door by 9am, I skip out the door and glance quickly in the mirror as I leave. Oh God.

You’ve Got to Run With It!

On the spur of the moment (a mad moment in hindsight) both Jess and I decided to participate in the Tough Mudder race.  Our dear friend Shona @themodeladvocate asked if we would like to participate to help support her cause.  Not thinking much of it, we agreed, and subsequently firmly pushed the decision to the … Continue Reading

Bicycle Blues

I longingly look at my wardrobe full of fantastic finds I have accrued over the years of living in different countries and given to me from shoots, trying to find events, outings, evenings out… anything, where I can dust off the Joseph or Celine pieces I have stashed away from my past life pre-children, desperately … Continue Reading
