About Me

Welcome to

Hi! *Waves* I'm Carly and thanks for dropping by!

After university I worked in London's Covent Garden for a year where I found my true love; Soy Chai Latte from Starbucks! I was then asked to move in with my 2nd true love (my prince) and the following 4/5 years brought me the sale of my fashion company, marriage and a little princess who is now 2 years old!

I started Mummy's Shoes 2 years ago as a way to document those precious 'firsts' and as my readership grew I started writing about general parenting advice and life as a busy mum. I have worked with some fantastic brands and attended some wonderful events because of it and I love to hear from all my readers, so do get in touch.

I am very much a pastel girl, loving pearls and diamonds. I adore vintage chic, retro, paisley and ditsy prints. I am a creative person and this seems to manifest itself in fashion. I love coffee shops and I love Soy Chai Latte even more! I love getting the giggles and not being able to stop, I love to dance! This is my frivolous side.

I love my family more then the world, I am so blessed to have a little daughter (named Baby Belle in this blog) she is the light of my life. I have an amazing husband, an amazing mum and dad and 3 fantastic brothers. Some days I get scared thinking I am not grateful enough for my life and then some nights I lie awake thinking one of them will be taken away from me because I do not have enough hardship, I can be a worrier. My husband logically tells me no one is here forever.

I have faith in God

I adore Rumi

I am shy. But I am confident. I am quiet but once you know me I am loud.
Once I have a friend they are a friend for life, I am loyal to the core.

So there you have it...that is me wrapped up.
