Any New Mums To Be Bloggers Out There?

Friday, 29 January 2016

So I've been on the hunt for mummy bloggers just like me, in hope to find some lush reading. Of course I still like reading about beauty make up and lifestyle, but now with this new chapter in my life, I wanted to read anything that is to do with mummies to be and babies of course, and their views and opinons and it hasn't been easy. 

All the blogs I have found are all of experienced mums. Don't get me wrong, they are fab, but I would love to find other bloggers who are also in the new chapter of their lives and who like sharing their experiences and views

Comment below if you know any bloggers who are in his new chapter

Looking For The Perfect Baby Changing Bag

As a first time mum to be, I haven't really started buying anything. I guess we are waiting to know the sex of the baby before diving into those gorgeous baby boutiques. There goes our wallet out the window!

But one of the things the I have been looking around for are changing bags. Trying to find the best one for me hasn't been easy at all. It's either the shape, the pattern, the material, the fussy pockets. Really, the only one I liked because of its shape was the Gucci Diaper Bag. What I didn't like was the price!

Now, don't judge or shoot me girls, I haven't gone out and splurged £730 on my credit card,  but just look at the simple shape of this changing bag. That is what I was looking for maybe lets say a good few months. I have to confess, I did go to the Gucci store to have a look at it, and really loved it, but kept saying to myself 'I'm going to find one exactly the same shape and a lot cheaper... a lot lot chaper'

Don't get me wrong, I think it's a lovely bag. I seriously do, and to be honest girls, it was going to be my very last resort if I couldn't find one I liked, but ONLY my last resort, and yes, it would kill me alive spending £730 on a changing bag. Thank God I have a husband who is always supportive of my crazy decisions.

And with all the searching and searching I found one which I fell in love with. My love for the Gucci changing bag went out the window! The same shape, no fuss, and way way much better, easy to clean and black to match the pram when we eventually buy one!

This gorgeous changing bag is from a fantastic company called Storksak and they specialise in baby changing bags. They have amazing bags in all types of designs, colours and materials to suit every mummy.

I bought the Storksak Poppy bag on their website yesterday after watching a fab review about it on YouTube. I can honestly say I fell in love with it immediately.

It comes with a changing mat and an extra little pouch for your bottles. So organised! Simply love it! I can't wait to receive it through the post! I'm so excited! Our bundle of joy's first present!

If you also love this diaper changing bag you can buy yours here for £89 at Storksak Poppy

Hope you love it as much as I do!

One Of My Favourite Parts Of Our House

Thursday, 28 January 2016

I thought I'd share a photo that I recently posted on my Instagram which had a lot of response. The photo shows a part of our house which I love, especially when the sun is shining through.

This piece of gorgeous art is a handmade 3-dimensional art collage and hangs at the end of our staircase. It symbolises what my husband loves and what he does for a living. His love for cinema, film and video production.

We bought this piece in Portugal after our wedding. Let's say it was a wedding present to ourselves. We always love buying bits together for our love nest. Especially pieces which symbolise 'us' and this piece has my husbands name all over it

The collage is from a shop called A Loja Do Gato Preto. It is an amazing shop and we always say if we were to buy a place in Portugal we would definitely furnish the whole place with their pieces. 

So as I was saying, the camera is not drawn, but a collage made up of magazine and newspaper cuttings. It's truly an amazing piece of work and so beautiful to admire. I sometimes find myself just reading the newspaper cuttings. It's so interesting to just look at. I feel like these is always a new cutting which I haven't seen before. Truly amazing.

Also, don't you just love box frames? I think they are great and really make the picture pop.

My Wedding Dress - PRONOVIAS IRUNE

Tuesday, 26 January 2016

Hey my beautiful brides!

Wow, it's been ages since I last blogged. Really, since I got back from Portugal and was down with the wedding blues! That has all passed now! And I am back to my normal happy self!

Sorry I haven't been blogging recently. I keep telling myself that I will start to blog again, and then I don't get round to doing it. My friend Laura is much better at blogging and likes to keep to a strict regime, and she's very good at it! Check her blog out here Laura Thinks About

So I have decided to base this post on my wedding dress as I have been getting so many messages and emails asking me questions about it, so that's why I decided to do this post so that I could answer everyone's questions and doubts

Am I selling my wedding dress?

Unfortunately no. I actually don't have my wedding dress in London. The next day after the wedding, I took my dress to the dry cleaners to have it cleaned. The dress was a state as you all can imagine. Also, even if I wanted to sell my dress, I wouldn't as sadly, the bracelet I had on liked to snag on my dress towards the end of the night. So in a way it is ruined, but then again, I'm never going to wear it again. I was thinking of doing tailoring the dress knee length so that I could wear it in a future occasion, but because of the bracelet snags, I doubt anything can be done.

What undies did you wear with the dress?

This question got asked lots and I totally understand why. The IRUNE dress is tailor fit, skin tight, therefore getting the right undies was important. I actually wore undies from H&M. Very simple lace undies which you couldn't notice at all with the dress. And they only cost £3.99!!!

I initially wasn't going to buy the IRUNE dress (thats another story) and spent a fortune on another set of underwear which funny enough I still have in the box wrapped in tissue with the tags on. After changing my dress, I could no longer wear the set I had originally bought. I'm actually selling the set, so if any of you brides know of someone who needs brand new bridal underwear, get in contact.

Did you wear a bra?

For the top part ladies such as our bras... Because of the gorgeous low cut back that the IRUNE dress has, you can not wear any bras. The dress comes with support pads already tailored into the dress so that you have the support that you need. I'm not going to lie, I did look around for bodies with low back and a padded front, but no luck. Ultimo do a body but the reviews on it weren't great due to its comfyness, and believe me, the last thing you want is to feel uncomfortable in your dress on your wedding day. So I wore nothing! 

Now what I did wear was tit tape. This assured me that nothing would escape, and also at the same time gave me the support I needed.

So my gorgeous brides, here were the top three questions I got asked. If you have any other doubts on the Irune dress, please let me know. Comment, tweet or send me an email and I'll be happy to answer any questions.

Much love x
