Isabella Oliver Clothing: Review and Competition

I was recently contacted by Isabella Oliver to see if I wanted to try out something from their site.  Their clothes are timeless and so I had quite a hard job deciding what to pick.

In the end I went for The Flared Jeans as I have one of their wrap dresses already, which I adore! For those of you who haven't heard of Isabella Oliver, they are a London based British women's wear label, renowned for dressing pregnant celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba, Gwen Stefani and Natalie Portman. Not only do they offer beautiful maternity wear but they also now have a ready-to-wear '365 Collection' for the modern multi-tasking woman!

Beautiful packaging

The Jeans


The sizing comes up perfectly on them and I love that they are a little flared as I tend to go for skinny jeans.  I also like the dark indigo colour too, as again, I tend to go for pale blue denim normally. They are not too low or high waisted, I would go as far as saying they are the PERFECT fit and definitely a classic look! They always look quite smart no matter what I team them with, even a little white vest top!

I can't rave enough about these jeans BUT don't take my word for it try them out yourselves BECAUSE the lovely people at Isabella Oliver are giving one of my readers the chance to pick a pair of jeans from their site.

Autumn fashions for Mummy & Babe

The weather has taken a bit of a turn, there was even a frost on the ground the other morning! So I decided it was high time to put away the summer dresses, get out the knits and boots and do a bit of a wardrobe update for Belle and myself. So we went shopping, mainly in Next!

My nanny always bought us our winter coats and my mum has carried on this tradition and gets Belle her winter coats too. I adore the two she has chosen this year and they look adorable on!

I have put all the web links underneath the pictures so you can pop over and look at the items.


In the above jacket plus Beret and Shoes both from Next too

The second coat she got was this Mink Trim Parker I love the lace detail

Also bought a skinny rib polo neck to put underneath it here



This looks SO cute on!
Cute Tights of course, a must for the colder days!
Ditsy Floral and animal Tights here
Cable Knit Design Tights here




(Shoes and Tights from Next as before)

(from L to R)
Pink Bow Pumps which Belle calls her dancing glitter shoes


For a wedding I am going to

Pink Midi Vintage dress from H&M
With a slim or chunky tan belt.

I love lace, what more can I say!

This is one of those essential winter knits I will be slinging over jeans for most of the winter :-)


My beautiful customised umbrella from Love Umbrellas !


Of course this is my favourite item of the month, or should I say year!?
My Mamami Amara Bag!
I will of course dedicate a post to this very soon so you can appreciate the sheer gorgeousness of this stunning bag! But I can say it has not left my side for the past week and has received so many compliments when out that I have lost count!

P.s This is not a sponsored post, I know we were 'repping" Next quite a bit there...I simply adore their children's range this season and hence the number of purchases!

The Gallery: Faces

The theme over at The Gallery this week is ‘Faces’. I deliberated over this one for quite some time.  My nanny who's eyes told a thousand tales, sparkly blue like my daughters, a reminder of where we all came from. My mum with her stunning green eyes, always loving and caring for us no matter what. My dad, a wonderful father and a genius.  My husband, 9 times out of 10 displaying his serious 'thinking' face, he thinks too much about things but I love him for it. Or perhaps my brothers, always winding me up but all so fantastic! Or maybe my friends, always making me laugh and creating fab memories.

An obvious one, which you would probably all expect from me is my little Belle, who we call cherub chops because she is just too adorable for words (expect when being a little diva). But I decided to use this one...my little family all displaying...happy faces

tinyme launches in the UK and what a great brand!


Last week myself and a handful of other bloggers headed to Oundle Mill for a lovely meal and introduction from tinyme


I'll be honest with you, my attendance was mainly an excuse to have a catch up with one of my twitter BFF's Chet and Helen from Blog Match but I was pleasantly surprised by tinyme and their adorable range of personalised products for children.



Here's a bit of background for you, about tinyme, a lovely story! And boy are they enthusiastic about their products, which is so nice to see:


Once upon a time 3 young dads (who happen to have 13 kids under 9) combined a whole bunch of geeky high tech machines, some generous dollops of cuteness, a slightly loopy team of people and mixed them together with the world wide webby thingy. The result was amazing.... a comprehensive range of affordable, premium quality, designer personalised products for kids. All custom made and shipped out in a jiffy.

I loved so many of their products but a few which I will definitely be purchasing are:

These adorable wall stickers



We were given some samples of the wall stickers to take home and Belle has loved playing with them! They must have been taken on and off the wall about 40 times and they still have their stick!! My favourite designs are the birds, flowers and tree's!

Secondly I loved the vast range of personalised bags, just perfect for when Belle starts Ballet:


Again there are colour and design choices and of course the option to have it personalised with your child's name too.

Finally another thing I will definitely be getting are these fab cupcake toppers, perfect for a party! These are actually free printables if you pop over here you can get your hands on them!


There are lots more amazing products, from wall charts to personalised stationary and name labels!

Thanks to blog match and tinyme for a fantastic event and for great company!
