Chance's Minimalist Nursery

Vitra Eames Elephant, White
I have been meaning to post this for some time, especially as I have talked about Chance's nursery in a couple of posts, with regards to the minimalist style and essential items.

"I'm not like a regular mom. I'm a cool mom."

Sophia Breton, Cass Dress styled by me in M.i.h's studio
Or an M.i.h mum? The first thing that came to my mind when I walked into the M.i.h studios in West London, my first fashion press day after giving birth to Chance, was that hilarious scene from Mean Girls!

Losing Sleep, over Losing Sleep

Chance & I - I am wearing River Island cream jacquard pyjama top and bottom, Chance is wearing John Lewis Baby Organic Cotton Bodysuit

This morning the clocks went forward at 1am and launched us into British Summer Time. 
Spring is one of my favourite seasons, mainly because it's my birthday, I love seeing flowers bloom, getting a ton of presents, and all round feeling 'Springy'; Summer is usually better, vacations and sun...I just seem to function so much better as a person with sunlight.

106 days of Chance

Chance and those nail varnish marbled eggs

“There's Really Nothing Quite So Sweet As
Oh, how I love baby feet, and those toes! Why do they grow so fast?”
Author Unknown

It’s Chance’s first Easter this weekend, and I am trying to capture these special moments and document them as well as I can. I have spent time marbling eggs with nail polish (without gloves), as I type, there is blue, pinks and white nail polish dotted all over my right hand; I have taken many photos, as new parents do and I have talked to him about the meaning of Easter...unsure of whether he has understood me, but he smiles anyway.

A Bobble of Water on #WorldWaterDay

Bobble Infuse and flowers from my friend Serah

When I was at school, we had this nurse who would prescribe water for everything. If you had a cold, water was the cure, if you were stung by a wasp, water was the cure, if you had a headache, you guessed it, water would cure it.

Prints Charming

Alpha C

C is for Chance, at least that is what I say to Chance every other day, as I think that if I repeat it enough times, maybe my 3 month old will respond.

My love of white, minimalist interiors is blatantly obvious when you step into my home. Bleached wood flooring, white walls, white kitchen, white and minimalist everything. In fact, the health visitor came round to my home for my 6 week check, and asked me whether I had moved in recently?! No, I replied, I have lived here for about 2 years!

Travelling with Bebe: A London Mother Discovers the Wisdom of International Travel

London Heathrow Terminal 5

Okay, so I spun the lines a little of the fantastic book ‘Bringing Up Bebe: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting’, only to hint to you what I had learnt on the 4 flights that my son Chance had taken before he was 3 months.

This post particularly focuses on our recent trip to NYC with British Airways, and is long so grab a cuppa, your notepad and settle down.

Sunday 6th March 2016, was my first ever mother’s day.
The day didn’t start like any other, I was making my way back home from a wonderful few days in New York for my birthday, in fact at midnight GMT I was in the BA Galleries lounge at Newark Airport.
