It’s not perfect but there’s something pretty and authentic about this video diary and I think I kind of love it; flaws and all. A big thanks to my wonderful hubby Ayman even though it’s slightly shaky in parts I think it adds character and practice makes perfect right? 😉 I hope you enjoy it…

The music on this video is Lungs by Mike Dignam (my super talented little brother).



I thought I’d step out of my usual skinnies and baggy jumpers for this sweet swishy number from Laura Ashley. Lightweight, comfy and fitted in all the right places. I don’t know if it’s just me but since I’ve not had time for the gym to work out and tone my arms, I always find myself looking for tops and dresses with little sleeves. To be honest as a mum we really shouldn’t worry about this though because I probably work out more than I used to anyway with the amount of times I’m lifting and dancing around with Hugo in my arms. Nevertheless this dress ticks all the right boxes for me and I think the style of it is also super flattering and great for all different shapes and sizes.


That smile just kills me every time!


There’s something about this dress that brought out the fun girly side of me…skipping, dancing and twirling, all the good stuff that little girls are made of, y’know.

Just walking past my dream house as I visualise Hugo and I sat in one of those beautiful tall windows looking out onto the pretty park…

Sorry for the millions of photos… I did whittle it down from over 250 can you believe it!!

Thank you Laura Ashley for sending me this beautiful number, it’s been quite a while since I’ve worn a dress and it couldn’t have been a more perfect day for it! The sun was shining, the birds were tweeting and I even had time to fake tan and manicure. So roll on spring and summer so I can swish and play around in it all day long and here’s a link to the dress so you have it.

And thank you to all of you, for once again stopping by and reading this special little space of mine where I can share all aspects about my life, loves and passions. I would so love to sit down and have a brew with you and talk about life in person but I guess this is about as good as it gets with being a busy working mama.

Have a great week!

Lots of love
