The most beautiful dress

Dress found here 

Hey guys! Sorry it's been over a week! I feel like I'm always apologising for lateness over here but with the two week Easter holidays and us going to Italy to visit my little sister I'm just had less time to get online. Well, that's not entirely sure as I'm still over on IG a lot but I always feel like I need to sit down properly to blog. So it's finally a child care day and I have a warm cup of coffee (bliss) and a couple of hours to catch up with you all. I hope you had a lovely break!

You might have noticed I've been doing video a bit more lately and part of that is because I've joined the Channel Mum team. I'm really excited to be trying something a bit new and I love watching YouTube (probably more than I love watching actual TV! I think I must just be nosy by nature). So hopefully you'll enjoy seeing more of my face over there and I'll pop the videos here too just in case you miss them.

On that note actually I have a DITL (day in the the life) video live right now. It was one of those videos that took ages to get going. In fact I filmed an intro on Monday and Tuesday and then failed filming the rest of the day but persevered with Thursday, ha! I hope you like seeing these kind of glimpses into my day. If you have any recommendation of videos you'd like to see me do then let me know in the comments. I know I know I really need to do more on our home as it's the most requested subject I get asked about but it's just so hard to tidy the house for ha!

Anyway, this dress is THE DREAM. I still can't decide where will be practical to wear it because um it's white and I have two kids but I pretty much feel like a fairy in it so it's a keeper for sure (and 25% off at the moment too FYI)

Speak soon!

Gender Reveals.. Did we have a prefrence?

Hi all! We've just come back from Italy and I can't wait to share some snaps with you and our thoughts on visiting Bologna and Venice! We're knee deep in holiday washing and general life admin right now but that's what weekends are for right?

Anyway I thought I'd pop on quickly to share my latest video in can you fancy a watch. I'm talking about gender reveals. If you remember we found out Mabli was a girl all together (with Wilf) and recorded it in the video below (its one of my absolute favourites as you can see the moment we discover she was a she!). I love having a little boy and would of loved to have seen with develop that close brotherly bond but I have to admit that I had I had another boy there would always have been part of me that would have wondered what it would be like to have a girl. Mainly for that 'mother/daughter' relationship that I really hope we have as she gets older.

Actually a friend of mine wrote a brilliant piece about her feelings on having two sons when she also wanted a daughter, you can read it here if you like.

I know its SUCH a sensitive topic but I think its one that should be spoken about. It goes without saying that all we want are healthy children, I know what its like to experience miscarriage and I'm SO grateful for my two children but I also think its OK to also say you might grieve the idea of a certain bond or wonder what having a son/daughter might be like too.

What do you think?

Cat you speak cat?

I've always been a cat person but when I met my husband I kind of realised I wasn't a 'proper' cat person. I mean Tom is just obsessed with cats, one of his favourite pastimes used to be going for walks and stopping to stroke and chat to neighbourhood cats. I'm pretty sure if we didn't have kids we would have about ten cats at least by now ;)

We got our two cats Rockie and Maddie from a rescue centre. The lady that used to own then was a breeder and I think they just got too old to be bred or whatever (plus there were about twenties cats in that place). We were told that Maddie would only live in one room and was too shy to go out but I think it must have just been the environment she was in as within a few weeks with us she was totally fine. They are pedigree British Shorthairs and Rockie used to be a show cat (he even won best cat in the SouthWest in 2009 or something ha!). They are getting on to be about 11 now (we think!). It's safe to say their lives changed quite a bit when we adopted them. We've partnered with Lily's Kitchen in this post to share a little about our cats and how well we understand them.

Pastel tyres and bunny shoes

When you sit on a chair that is so big it makes you look like a three year old

We are away visiting my littlest sister in Italy for Easter! It's been a long time coming as she's been there for about 9 months now and is heading back to the UK for her last year in uni in September. I'm so proud of her for moving to another country, it's not something I would have been able to do at twenty for sure!

My sister is a vegan but says its surprisingly easy to eat out with vegan options where she lives so I'm really excited to eat lots of lovely vegan and veggie dishes. It's always the thing I'm most nervous about when travelling funny enough, especially as we are trying to be plant based as much as possible at the moment.

I thought I'd share this little shoot I did the other week as I feel like the bunny trainers are particulaly apt for the time of year! I just love them so much, in fact Mabli has her own matching pair but frankly trying to get a 15th month old to stay still enough to get a shot of us twinning is near impossible!

I'm wearing the Pintura Jersey Dress from Thought Clothing, I love the brush stroke detailing to it and the colours of course! I just happened to spot this little garden off from North Street in Bedminster with tyre planters that matched perfectly! 

My sunnies are from Joanie Clothing and trainers by Minna Parikka 

I hope you are having a lovely Easter break, let me know what you got up to in the comments!
