Maticevski Resort 2017

I am devasted I can’t get to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week this week. I just don’t feel comfortable leaving Aston, and it wasn’t worth it only going for a day. I am also busy with The Connection (as we are re-launching, woo hoo, but more on this soon) so the timing wasn’t right. I was really looking forward to seeing one of my favourite designers, Toni Matcievski. The man can do no wrong and continually leads the way with his unique silhouettes, layered textures, moulded fabrics and monochromatic details. Last year his show took my breath away and even though I wasn’t in the room this year the photos tell the same story.

My Birth Story

I can’t believe it has taken me so long to put into words my birth experience. Just like that, the months have flown by. It has been five months since my beautiful little man arrived into this world and there are no words that can explain the love I have for him. It’s a feeling that I have never felt for anyone before and thinking about him stirs up emotions I didn’t even know existed before he was born (that’s not to say, it’s all been rosy. These last months have been so hard, but also the most rewarding, but more on this in a later blog post). Aston arrived at 6:50 am on Friday the 27th of November, weighing in at eight pounds nine ounces (just under four kilos) and measuring fifty-two cm’s long with a whopping big head. Believe it or not, he came bang on his due date, which we were told is quite unusual.

7 Podcasts You Need In You Life

Since becoming a mum my free time is very limited. It’s all about multitasking. Aston finally loves his pram and sometimes it’s the only way to settle him so that means I have been walking more than ever before. On these walks, there is only so much music I can listen to. I am also the kind of girl that always wants to learn something new (and time to sit and read is pretty much non-existant at the moment) so this is where my love with podcasts was born.

#Likeaboss Campaign

So I was pretty chuffed when Wittner asked me to feature in their #LIKEABOSS AW16 campaign. There were a few reasons I got excited. Firstly, I have always been a fan of their work. You have most likely seen me rock their lace up points numerous times before. Their shoes don’t just look great; they are also super comfy and durable. Tick!

Not-So-Basic White Shirt

So in case you didn’t already know (my endless posts on the topic may be a giveaway) but the white shirt is a wardrobe essential in my eyes. It’s a ‘basic’ that every girl needs, but this season we have seen refreshing twists on the staple proving it is so much more than just a basic. The simple white shirt was one of the most popular styles seen down the Spring 2016 runways but this time, it featured a modern twist, making our wardrobe essential more special than ever before. It’s all about bell sleeves, cut-out details, tie-ups, strapless shapes and ruffle arms. I can’t get enough!
