Merry Christmas!


It's time to bid farewell to my blog until 2018 and spend the next few weeks celebrating Christmas, my birthday and the new year with my nearest and dearest. It has been an incredible year for us. We started 2017 as a two and we're ending it as parents to our darling little boy, Joshua. We've gone from strength to strength as a couple and there is no one else I'd want to spend my life with.

A Homesense Christmas Haul



Homesense is basically Disneyland for homeware lovers. It's an Aladdin's cave of trinkets, one off pieces and things you never even knew you needed. I am obsessed, you only have to search Homesense on my blog to see just how much, so it was inevitable that once again, I filled up a basket full of Christmas decorations to bring home with me.

Baby Spake is Two Months Old



I can hardly believe I'm writing my little bubba's two month update but here we are. Joshua is now two months old, eight weeks or 62 days old. I was never sure if I would write these posts because I wasn't 100% on how much I would share when it came to Joshua but I want something to look back on, something I've written to remind me of my son growing up. Plus, you've all followed me throughout my pregnancy, these updates are a nice way to round things up.

A Very Special Christmas



Christmas has always been such a special time of year for my family, my mum always made it so magical for my sister and I growing up so I've always done the same even when it was just Arran and I. This year, Joshua has made us a little pod of three and even though he doesn't know what his feet are, let alone Christmas I couldn't resist making it even more special.

Birchbox X Matthew Williamson


Just like that we are on our final Birchbox of the year! The December Birchbox is in collaboration with Matthew Williamson and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.

A spot of luxury in December seema fitting so here is what you can find in this months Birchbox.

The NEW Clarins Double Serum



Double Serum by Clarins has been doing the rounds in the skincare cupboards of many for a number of years, since 1985 to be exact. This year, Clarins have released the 8th generation of Double Serum and I've finally tried it for myself. It's been a long time coming, that's for sure. As I've got older, I've taken more care of my skin, my teenage self would be shocked at how much time I take preening now but I'm still getting asked for I.D so I must be doing something right.

Celebrate Christmas with Molton Brown


Molton Brown is a brand I associate with beautiful classic scents with an added air of mystery. I remember discovering the brand when I was very young, thanks to hotel toiletries and it has always stuck in my mind. Maybe it's because it's one of the first beauty brands I was ever introduced to so I've always had a soft spot for it. I find Christmas is the perfect time of year to introduced your nearest and dearest to new things that they may love and the Molton Brown Christmas collection is ideal for just that.

Festive Favourites from Nailberry



With December brings Christmas and that means I can crack out the festive nail colours I've been dying to wear! I'm a creature of habit, I keep my pastels for the spring, brights for the summer, berries for the autumn with reds, golds and anything sparkly kept for winter. I've been using Nailberry this year so it was inevitable that I'd pick up some of their festive shades for the party season with The Gilt Trip collection being perfect!

Christmas Decoration Haul



Oh what a wonderful time of year! I am obsessed with Christmas and I think Arran has finally reached the point of not caring and just lets me crack on with it. Every year I find a way to squirrel more decorations into our home and this year has been no exception, especially as I've had the extra excuse of  buying stockings and more for Joshua.

The Sleepyhead Deluxe+ Pod



Sleep and babies is a conversation we had with people many times throughout my pregnancy. Everyone wanted to know where or how Joshua would be sleeping so it's something we discussed at length before committing to the products we now use. When it comes to buying baby bits, there is so much stuff that it's really difficult to decide on what you actually need and what really is a gimmick. Plus, it is all so pricey that we had to be sure and hope he loved it.

Miller & Carter Steakhouse Southampton



In August, Southampton saw Miller and Carter open one of their much loved steakhouses and they invited Arran and I to try it out for ourselves. We took advantage of my parents offering to babysit and booked in to enjoy our first night out as parents where we enjoyed prosecco and the most delicious meal. We already can't wait to go back, just look at the menu - Miller & Carter!
