Before I knew I was expecting a boy when pregnant with my first child, Oliver, I dreamt of a little sailor-suited and booted baby son, one I hoped would look just like my husband, Peter. That's love for you, huh?!
If you guys follow my style blog mummysgotstyle.com too, you'll know I'm a bit bit obsessed with fashion and how empowering and transformative clothes can be-and now the weather is turning, it's time to add another coat to the collection.
Yesterday I went all bright and colour blocked, I put together a bright, vibrant ensemble of blue, fuschia and yellow with my cropped jumper (Topshop), dress (Fever London) and bag (Nova Harley).
The summer is all about pretty, bright prints for me and nothing says that better than florals.
I can't quite believe that I've been doing the Fast Diet for 11 weeks! 11 whole weeks! It's flying by. For those who don't know, the Fast Diet (eating 500 calories for women, 600 for men 2 days a week then normally for 5 days) was conceived by Dr Moseley who researched diets which aided health and longevity on his BBC Horizon documentary, Eat, Fast and Live Longer.
Those who follow this blog might have noticed a little re-brand recently (hello new scarlet profile picture) from shots taken on a recent shoot I had with the super-talented Kirsty Mattsson.
Wohoo, it's tropical out there (get those maternity hot pants at the ready)- OK maybe I'm not rocking the hot pants with a bump band but with highs of 24, I'm one happy Mama, absorbing every single last golden ray and totally loving the summer style that's hitting the high street.
My post No Boys Allowed got a lot of debate going on on the blog the other day and some women mentioned little girls' clothes were much more fun and they found greater choice for girls, struggling with boys' gear for their own or for presents.
