That feeling when you finally squeeze back into your old clothes after having a baby is a bit of a celebratory moment for us mums. Well at least it is for me. I always think it’ll never happen but it does, just as my hips and back grew miles a part they slowly and gradually start to move back in towards each other again. It’s quite miraculous what our bodies do naturally, isn’t it? I’m not back at my pre-pregnancy weight by the way… I allow at least nine months for that because it took nine months to expand so it’s only fair, right? Haha.

As I’m slowly fitting back into my old clothes I suddenly had a slightly crazy two week period where I kept wanting to buy new things… maybe as a little self-celebration? I remember I had a similar splurge after Hugo too; I don’t know if it’s actually a thing that a lot of mums do but yeh I became slightly obsessed with online shopping.

In amongst the many products that arrived – and lots returned – there were a few hidden gems that I absolutely adore and made me feel great when wearing them. So this is what’s inspired me to do this blog post, to share with you some of my fave purchases recently. All great for busy mums like me and also if you’re breastfeeding :).

I’ve pretty much explained everything I wanted to say in the video so please give that a watch below or above before you scroll down 🙂 Also I’d love all the support I can get over there as I feel very much like a teeny tiny fish in a big sea.
