Why you should support small businesses this Christmas [gift guide and £200+ giveaway]

This year I'm making a conscious effort to support small businesses when it comes to Christmas shopping, from food to gifts, to decorations and gift wrap.

My life in photos: January 2017

We made it! We survived the most depressing month of the year. I might not have done too well on the old resolutions (does one bath cut short by a screaming baby count as self-care?) but there's still 11 months to go. Here's a look at my month in photos. 1.

As a mum, my go-to bag is the changing bag. I take it everywhere because I'm never without the baby. Except on the odd afternoon when my mum babysits and we head out for lunch and to the cinema on our own. I know, crazy, right! On these occasions I need to take a smaller… Continue reading Item of the day: Spot print satchel from Accessorize

Item of the day: Hot air balloon bag from Kate Spade

Ah, Kate Spade! I love you and your quirky bags. If you have a healthier bank balance than me, you might wanna get your hands on this incredible £330 bag.
