Why I love wearing jumpsuits

Why I love wearing jumpsuits

Fashion  |  Ashford

Jumpsuits have always been one of my favorite things to wear come Summer. I love wearing them for the same reasons I love dresses – they’re incredibly comfortable, easy to style and make getting ready in the morning a breeze.
This striped culotte jumpsuit is perfect for laid back weekends at home – I wore mine during our recent staycation at Eastwell Manor. Jumpsuits are a savvy style choice no matter what occasion you’re dressing for, whether it’s for a day in the sun or perhaps for a more formal event like a wedding. And thanks to retailers like Quiz Clothing, this season’s must-have jumpsuits are available without a hefty price tag – and they tick all the right boxes (style, fit and price).

Take a peek into our little boy’s nursery

Take a peek into our little boy’s nursery

Interiors  |  Ashford

For our little boy’s nursery we wanted to create a delightfully calming space, using a mix of colors and textures to add a bit of playfulness. After spending hours scrolling and pinning my favorite nurseries on Pinterest (follow me here), I put together a mood board and started sourcing furniture and decorative accessories.
We opted for classic decor that we can easily switch up and change as Noah grows and finds new interests. We purchased a basic chest of drawers from Ikea – I believe it was around £200 and replaced the original knobs with these cute ones from Sass & Belle

Tested and loved – 3 beauty products for new mums

Tested and loved – 3 beauty products for new mums

Beauty  |  Ashford

When you’re a mum, you’re lucky to even get in the shower, let alone moisturize your skin daily, apply make-up or blow-dry your hair. So if you’re looking for some products that’ll shave your beauty routine by half, keep reading!
A newborn and a hectic schedule is no excuse to cut your ties with a proper skincare routine, so next time when you’re short on time, either simplify your steps or take my example and use multitasking skincare products. I always reach for a day cream that’s formulated with SPF so that I can cut a step (and an additional product) out of my daily skincare routine.

Designing our dream kitchen

Designing our dream kitchen

Interiors  |  Ashford

Choosing a new kitchen is such an exciting project, but also usually a major investment. When my husband and I bought this house over two years ago, we knew that we needed to extend the kitchen so we could have a bigger space.
I started looking on Pinterest (follow me here) mainly, scrolling through and pinning my favourite styles. We live in Kent, so we wanted to bring a touch of the country to our kitchen.
