Pregnancy Massage – Yummy Mummy Day Spa

One of the things I’ve always recommended whilst being pregnant is to have time to spoil yourself with some serious pampering. After all, you have mostly likely gone through morning sickness, heartburn, swelling, cramping, crazy hormones, weight gain…and not forgetting growing a little person inside you! It’s a lot to go through for 9 months […]

Expect in Style Maternity Fashion

During my third trimester and to cope with the summer heat, I know I have to rely less on hiding behind layers but having my large bump on show in dresses and loose fitting separates. From my experience, it’s a lot easier to just pull something out of your wardrobe which is catered for pregnancy and not try […]

Little Leather: Silver Moccs

Now that Nyla has discovered the joy of walking, she doesn’t want to be carried and prefers to walk everywhere. So I’ve been researching the right shoes – shoes which aren’t restrictive and suitable for toddlers who are still learning to walk properly and prone to falling. Leather moccasins (moccs) for babies/toddlers are all the […]

Cool stuff for kids: Rock & Pebble Apple and Pear Houses

I never had a dollhouse growing up. Probably because I was content with making do with draping a sheet over the dining table and thus creating a cubby house for myself and my dolls/stuffed animals. But looking back it would have been nice to have a keepsake as a good quality wood doll house can […]

Labour…so what is it really like?

Can you believe it was nearly a year ago when I gave birth to Nyla? This is a long post so I hope you are comfortable with a cup of tea… I remember the time when first pregnant I laid my eyes on those double lines on the test. Trembling, I was both excited beyond belief but […]
