Yesterday Mally and I joined @finlay_fox and little V to check out The Hackney Made Collective, a new, ethical pop up near Shoreditch. The shop is filled with gorgeous goodies and it was really cool to chat and hear the stories behind the brands. I am FAR from crafty but I love discovering and supporting small brands, especially children’s ones! You can have a peek at my favourite bits in stories and if you’re local, be sure to pop in over the next two weeks, everything in there is so lovely.
Do you know of any awesome small brands that I should know about? Tag them below and let’s share the love! I’ve tagged some of my faves 😘
These two are obsessed with each other 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And sorry not sorry but I don’t know that there’s anything sexier than my man holding my baby (and diaper bag) at church 🙏 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I dreamed of these two. I PRAYED for these two. I waited for these two. And waited... and dated and lost hope in ALL MEN and thought I was too old for a baby and decided that maybe I would forever work for someone else and be single and just suck it up buttercup because life isn’t fair and my friends were awesome enough so I was FINE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yeah... 👌 negative Nancy, way to go on creating a life you love. 🤪🤣 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And thankfully the moments of self pity didn’t turn into a full on par-tay 🎉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So I checked my attitude and went back to my vision board. I refined my character and I kept close friends who called me out (and still do) I decided who I wanted to be. And then I started showing up as that woman. Settling for nothing less. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I took a job in a call center and paid off my debt while I styled on the weekends. I didn’t go on second dates with fools and I sure as heck didn’t commit my heart to the uncommitted. I committed my heart to my dreams. And it PAID OFF. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I stopped playing small and started living with intention. Intention to be a #mompreneur a wife, a woman with a purpose who cheers on others to do the same. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hold onto that feeling. That feeling you get when you dream really big and you see the woman you want to be. What is she wearing? What is she doing? Who is she with? What does stand for? 👑 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Style the life of your wildest dreams. No, it won’t be a perfect journey or destination. But it will be the 🎢 of your life if want it to be. Even in the simple, ordinary, mundane moments like this. Standing in a parking lot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m so excited to create vision boards with the mamas in my virtual styling experience. It’s where the magic is dreamed up to be lived out! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What’s your wildest dream?! 👇 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #momlifeinstyle
It's three months today since I gave birth to my second child - a baby girl🌸. I never thought I'd say it but it was a hugely liberating experience and very different to my first. Giving birth was always a massively daunting experience to me and so to have had a positive birth at home was a huge relief and has given me a great sense of achievement. My birth story in which Ross and I (unintentionally) delivered our baby without midwives is now up on the blog. I hope it can inspire and encourage anyone who is about to give birth and might be feeling a little apprehensive ❤️ Link in bio . Sunglasses: @chloe Bikini: @ganni (old) Baby romper: @junebeebaby
I’ve got on my good old Superga for today’s #fridayfeet 🙌🏻
Do good. That’s what I’m trying to do is be a living example of someone that just wants to do good. To show love and to show kindness and to accept everyone for who they are. Life boils down to two things: love and fear. If the world was based more and love than fear just think how incredible it would be. I’m going to base my life on love.
