The Good Web Guide Interview with NotSuchAModelMum

 Check out fashionable parenting on Instagram in the company of friends Jessica and Caroline.  Friends Jessica Arora and Caroline Barton met on the Parisian modelling circuit trudging from casting to casting fourteen years ago. They now have five children between them and have set up a fashion, lifestyle and mum blog NotSuchAModelMum. They were recently featured on @boden_clothing’s Instagram feed and site. Here, the social media-savvy models share their Instagram feeds with The Good Web Guide.



I love his style, and his work was timeless, iconic and elegant. We have grown up with the women he shot, aspiring to have their careers. Alas, we never quite made the cut to that level!


Living in Barcelona now, I love to see what people in Spanish-speaking countries like from fashion to lifestyles. It’s interesting to see how these twin girls work together on a blog, as it’s so relevant to us both at NotSuchAModelMum.


Because I love to be nosy! I worked in-house as a model with Victoria Beckham for five years. She really is a lovely lady and so inspirational. The brand has sky rocketed over the past few years and it’s a privilege to have worked with them.


We met Vicky Murdoch over a decade ago through modelling. Both Jess and I feel strongly about championing young brands such as Vicky’s British brand Silken Favours.


Doen is a unique bohemian clothing company I recently discovered full of wardrobe staples. Doen is a company for women, by women, and in support of women.



Innika Choo is a gorgeous and stylish Aussie mum-of-three living in Bali. She has her own clothing label called A Smockery and writes brilliant, funny captions on Instagram. I want to be her friend!


This brilliant educational resource, set up by a wonderful London primary school teacher, is my go-to on Instagram when I don’t know what to do with my sons.


This is a snapshot into the busy life of a mum-of-two juggling children and her independent online shop selling gorgeous Scandi kidswear and interiors.


Caroline and I are both avid subscribers of National Geographic and love learning something new from it every day. Our Instagram feed is full of fashion and children, so the beautiful and interesting photos of the @natgeo Instagram feed is a breath of fresh air.


I have always been obsessed with art and love to follow the auctions, and learn more about this iconic company. Their Instagram gives a behind-the-scenes view of the art world. Fashion and art are intrinsically linked and the Sotheby’s Instagram inspires me on every level.
