A savvy changing bag idea for stylish mums

When I was pregnant, shopping for a changing bag was one of the hardest tasks. Like many fellow handbag lovers out there, finding a changing bag that doesn’t scream “THIS BAG CONTAINS NAPPIES AND OTHER BABY STUFF” is hard to find – they’re not always stylish.

Granted – a lot of changing bags are very handy – including changing mats, insulated pockets for bottles etc etc – and a lot of them probably do stay in the car, on the pram, indoors etc until needed.

I wanted a changing bag that fitted in with my own lifestyle and style for handbags, especially if I was going to be carrying it out and about everyday.

Then, one day, during one of my frequent window-shopping-browses on Instagram (searching with hashtags of course), I discovered the perfect solution for carrying around my baby essentials…

Spring/Summer 2016 Wish List

I know my blog isn’t “serious fashion” – there’s enough blogs out there to cover that – but I do like odd piece of fashion… I am allowed to enjoy style even if I am no style icon!

With January far gone (hurrah) and February’s winter chill hopefully coming to an end soon, I’m excited about spring – a new season to brush away the cold cobwebs and either dust down our colourful wardrobes or invest in new finds…

A beautiful Italian wedding in Rome

WARNING: This post contains a lot of food and flowers (two of my favourite things – FYI)…

Last weekend I attended a friend’s wedding in Rome. I’ve been to Rome before, but I was so excited to experience my first wedding abroad, see close friends say “I Do” and go back to the gorgeous Eternal City. Little did I know, or even wonder beforehand, just how breath-taking and beautiful the wedding day was going to be. It was full of love and emotion (I was emotional, often tearful, for about 75% of the day), with stunning service and reception locations, and AMPLE Italian food and wine…perfect!

I took a fair amount of photos from the day and have got permission from the bride to share a few here on my blog (certainly inspirational for any bride-to-be or event planner out there)…

An Ibiza Love Affair

We all have many ‘happy places’ in life, right? Travelling to near and far places, experiencing new cultures, immersing in to vast amounts of history and exploring beautiful cities and paradises….And anywhere that tops up a healthy glow is a bonus in my book – wearing SPF30 of course…(okay maybe I’ll drop to SPF15 on my legs when they are sun-kissed).

Ibiza

#nofilter: Ibiza paradise

But what is it about Ibiza that keeps us going back year after year? Whether you’re single or in a relationship, a ‘raver’ or a ‘yoga-bunny’, a dancer or chillaxer – whatever your purpose, there’s so many of us in love with the tiny White Isle…

I’m not denying there are many who enjoy entering a certain Ibiza escapism and wilderness, full of debauchery and memories either best forgotten (if they haven’t already been forgotten before the flight home) but I love that I can immerse in to a world where those in their teens and early twenties are in the minority and where it’s more than acceptable to wear flip flops all day and night (leaving the Louboutin’s at home) and a messy up-do is more fitting than a perfectly groomed GHD curl…
