New in // Fashion


You may have seen a while back on Instagram, Sienna and I had these really cute matching tops! These are so 'us', I love the slogans; 'Mummy needs coffee' and '#coffee needed'. The monochromes very on trend and they fit really well, they are also made of the most gorgeous soft material, we love wearing them! They are from gorgeouslittlegeorge and we highly recommend you check them out, they have so many designs all in the monochrome or grey and black so are gender neutral. They do all sizes from babies to adults.. I think when this baby comes along, I will have to get the matching bodysuit for it ;)

Our family home | Moving...


We have recently been thinking of moving. It wasn't planned and isn't really ideal (as if anything we do is..!) but it may be a good move for us. With trying to save money for a wedding and a new baby, a letter saying our rent is being increased was not really welcome.

 It isn't a big increase but we still thought we'd have a look around to see what properties are up for rent locally. We found one that is a similar size to this one but has more storage and is quite a bit cheaper than this one too, meaning we'd be able to save quicker after the move.

Asda's little angels has the mumsnet approval!


Asda's little angels range has been one brand we have used from the start with Sienna and they now have the seal of approval from Mumsnet which is very exciting. This means they have been tested and approved by users of Mumsnet, which is the UK's largest network for parents.

The reason why we have always loved the Little Angel's range is because they offer everything you need for babies and toddlers, from nappies, to pull ups, to bath time products and snacks. The range has recently been updated to look even better and it's great to know that over 100 products have the seal of approval from other mums.

Pregnancy | 14 week update with baby #2


How far along? 14 weeks 2 days
Total weight gain/measurements: I don't weigh myself!
Maternity clothes: Only in a maternity bra at the moment but I have ordered some maternity clothes so look out for a haul soon!
Stretch marks? No new ones so far! I have switched from using a regular body oil to using the Palmer's stretch mark products as I feel I need something more specific to stretch marks now I am growing by the day! They all smell amazing and leave my skin feeling soft and nourished, my favourite is the oil spray as it's so quick and easy to apply when you're feeling tired!

14 week pregnancy update

Sleep: Not bad, I'm getting a bit of backache at night and I wake at least twice to go to the toilet but other than that, it's not horrendous (yet!).
Best moment this week: Starting to feel better after getting the sickness bands!

Wedding planning | Our photographer, Kerry Bartlett

Ever since we have been planning our wedding, I have been searching for the perfect photographer. I am really interested in photography even though I don't do it myself and I love looking at beautiful photographs. I knew I wanted someone who took amazing photos as at the end of the day the photos and memories are all you have left.

I found a few local photographers who's work was good and got some quotes but I wasn't sold on any of them so kept looking around and waiting. When I came across Kerry Bartlett on Facebook, I instantly fell in love with her work and spent hours going through her blog and website, looking at the stunning photos she had taken. I had a feeling she was going to be 'the one' but I did keep looking just to make sure no-one else cropped up. A few months past and I couldn't find anyone who's work I loved as much so we have gone ahead and booked her!
