NOW Blog Confrence


I've been blogging now for about eight years which frankly seems like a ridiculous amount of time. Never did I think that started this 'web log' documenting bits and bobs from the internet, things I found pretty, my life with my boyfriend, then pregnancy then two children later. Never did I imagine it would become my job or a way for my family to be together more, to be creative, to make friends, to travel. These things I am eternally grateful for, daily thankful for.

Something I love about blogging or being an 'influencer' is that I'm always learning. From photography, to videography to writing or styling or even flower arranging. I always have space to improve and curiosity to learn.

I've attended a fair few blogging conferences over the years and it's been a great way to meet up with friends and come away knowing a little more about this or that but I can't say I've ever attended one that I've 100% thought would be my cup of tea. We're all different, have different dreams or skills or interests. When I first heard about NOW Blog Conference though I immediately thought it would be just up my street.

One of the first ever blogs that I read (9 years ago now!) and inspired me to start my own was A Beautiful Mess. I'm sure they have done the same for SO many creatives out there. Elsie and then both Emma and Elsie (and the whole team of talented writers and photographers that work with them) are one of the reasons that I believed that what I was doing might be a success, that what seemed silly to so many might work if I just kept at it. I'm lucky enough to know them both a little through IG and so when I saw that Emma and Trey were part of the line up for NOW Blog Conference it made me even more excited to attend. I'm really looking forward to finally saying hello in person and hearing them speak!

As well as ABM the conference has a bunch more exciting and talented writers, creatives and entrepreneurs that you can check out here. The conference takes part over three days and has some amazing brands and sessions lined up. I honestly can not wait!

I had been invited to attend the conference as a guest but I really am super dooper excited to go! Get your ticket before they sell out and see you there??

People Tree x V&A Collaboration - What Mama Wore

People Tree x V&A Collaboration 
You may have seen from my instagram the other day me sharing a sneak peek of this shoot. A collaboration between People Tree and the V&A and I was chuffed to get my hands of a piece of what will surely be a sought after range! 

Me and my pal Lauren went on a stroll around one of my favourite areas of Bristol, Park Row and The Christmas Steps. I needed to pick up some flowers and a gift for Wilf's teacher as an end of year gift so we popped into Les Fleurs (which is just the loveliest little florist with the most helpful owner!). The next day Wilf proudly marched into school holding them all all the teachers who spotted him on way exclaimed about what a beautiful bouquet it was. It also doubled as a pretty good outfit prop, win win  ;)

Afterwards I picked up a candle from Osmology as a gift which could quickly become a bit of a habit, ALL the most gorgeous smelling candles. 

I'm wearing the Tulip Print gathered dress which feels so 1940's. The print also comes in a jumpsuit, ruffle skirt and frill top. It's a higher price point but I feel like they are those special items that you'll keep forever and pass down. One of those dresses that has a story and makes me people comment (and we had a lot of people comment that day!). At the moment I won't be able to wear it that much as I can't breastfeed in it of course but other than that I think it would be a pretty comfy dress for general mum life! It's so loose and comfortable but still feels like it keeps a tailored and flattering cut.

Don't forget you can get 15% off at People Tree full priced items with TLQ15 and 10% off sale items with TLQSALE10

What do you think of the collection? Are you a fan of the V&A and this floral design?

Snackspiration with Super Yummies

This is an advertorial post

Hey guys I wanted to pop over here and share a little teaser of a project I'm working on with Super Yummies! You may remember back in Autumn when we took these pictures on a nature walk armed with plenty of Super Yummies snacks to keep those little tummies going. I'm really thrilled to be working with this brand again as we use their products so much in our house.

Wish List: Summer style for you & the kiddos

Back with another wish list post today, one for you and one for the kiddos!

For myself I've definitely got a thing for wide legged trousers and pretty blouses going on - perfect for cool and simple summer style!

1. I love this new to me ethical clothing brand, especially these trousers.

2. I've wanted this embroidered shirt for so long and saw it was in the sale. It's still a little pricey but for a handmade item I'm really tempted!

3. These have been in and out of my online basket so many times in the past few weeks, do I need 
pink cord trousers?? I think so...

4. Just love this spotty blouse from Boden!

It's all things bright, patterned and colourful when it comes to mini-style!

5. Mini Rodini never does disappoint, plus these leggings are on sale!

6. M&S killing it again with their kids section, especially in love with this dress.

7. I haven't shopped Cath Kidston for ages but they have such sweet kids bits in at the moment, like this amazing jacket!

8. Can't get over these sweet dungarees (wish they came in adult size!)

Let me know what you think of these pieces and if theres anything you're obsessing over at the moment?
