How To Create A Casual Look That Will Turn Heads

*Collaborative Post

As a parent, a casual look suits me. I can move about easily, I can bend down and pick up the toys for the 10th time that day, I can chase a toddler down the street and I can feel comfortable whilst doing it. However, when we think of casual we often think about it being drab but it really doesn’t have to be this way. Here’s how to create a casual look that will turn heads.

I have a secret…

I’m a bit obsessed with cute baby clothes. I’m also a bit obsessed with funky prints and designs. Add in eco-friendly, enough space to fit a fluff cloth bum and I’m hooked.

Which is precisely why I’ve been lusting over the gorgeous children’s clothes from Little Drop in the Ocean for months now. Continue reading “Little Drop in The Ocean Eco-Clothing: A Review”

Maternity Wear: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

*Gifted Product

I have such a love-hate relationship with maternity wear. Don’t you find that there is such a gap in the market? We start to gain water and weight from before 12 weeks yet all the maternity wear is aimed at the size you are from around 7 months. Nothing fits from your normal wardrobe and you end up traipsing the shops for the very limited range of maternity clothes available to you. ‘Oh you can buy it online’ you hear time and time again but I don’t always want to buy online, I want to go into a shop, look at the sizes and try them on! And why are the styles mostly floaty, high necked, v-necked and with unflattering cut sleeves? Pregnant women are still the same people and even though their bodies change their tastes and fashion sense don’t; we want to feel like us as much as we can!

SpeedBump Maternity Activewear Review

*Gifted Items

Staying fit and healthy during this pregnancy was something I had decided upon even before I fell with this little guy. I wouldn’t say that my first pregnancy was unhealthy but I wasn’t partaking in any exercise classes and I really did use being pregnant as an excuse to take things easy. This all changed after he was born and I have been actively going to workout classes since Jake was about a year old so my fitness and strength have both increased in the last 3 years. This has meant that since finding out I was expecting with baby number 2 I haven’t had to alter my usual workouts of using kettlebells, Barbells, Bulgarian bags, TRX and other activities within my HIIT classes because my body is used to the level I have been working at. However, as my shape began to Continue reading “SpeedBump Maternity Activewear Review”

Dressing for a new you- 3 images of me in new clothes

Dressing For a New You

I don’t know about the rest of you but since becoming a Mother I have somewhat felt that I have lost my identity. I have been slowly drowning in baby paraphernalia, baby feeding, caring, nappy changes, weaning, teething, baby sick and feeling exhausted. It’s probably easily done in the first year but I am 2 1/2 years on and my days have been spent wearing the same jeans several times a week, grabbing the first top I see in my wardrobe and not noticing how worn out most of my clothes actually look.
