Christmas checklist: speed cleaning my house for the holidays

Christmas checklist: speed cleaning my house for the holidays

Interiors  |  Ashford

At this time of year, our home becomes the stage upon which all the magic of Christmas is played out. With friends and family coming to visit throughout the holiday season, it’s time to get my place sparkling clean.

Keeping a clean house while pregnant (I’m due next month) has proved more challenging than I ever imagined – fatigue in pregnancy is real, as are other symptoms (back pains, leg cramps, etc) that sometimes keep me from cleaning or feeling like cleaning.

What no one tells you about being pregnant (but should!)

What no one tells you about being pregnant (but should!)

Fashion  |  London

The moment you announce that you’re pregnant, everyone from your mother, grandmother, aunts, and friends (sometimes even strangers on the bus) seem very eager to share totally unasked for advice and horror labor stories with you. ‘Should you really be eating that/drinking that/be careful with that/make sure you don’t do that’ – I could write a book about it, no doubt!But there are actually are a few tips that expectant mothers really do need to hear – and chances are they were left out in the ‘becoming a mummy’ manual.

Take a peek inside my bedroom

Take a peek inside my bedroom

Interiors  |  Ashford

Around this time last year, we were picking up the keys to our new home – a truly momentous occasion, full of emotions and excitement as we moved away from all the stress and involvement of buying a property. Fast forward 12 months, we have just finished decorating our bedroom and the nursery for the baby’s imminent arrival.
One lesson I have learned throughout this journey is to have patience – decorating a home is like a never-ending love story. Every house tells a different story and every chapter of our life brings a fresh perspective.

Chunky trainers – the best new buys

Chunky trainers – the best new buys

Fashion  |  Ashford

Up until recently, it was all about the streamlined elegance of Adidas’ Stan Smith but, skip to 2018 the chunky trainers trend is sweeping through the fashion pack. It all started with Balenciaga’s Triple S – a big hit for the brand and one of the most popular luxury sneakers of the last year.

Favourite London coffee spots you’ll want to Instagram

Favourite London coffee spots you’ll want to Instagram

Food  |  London
I have scoured the streets of the city to bring you the best London coffee spots you'll want to Instagram right now. Don't get me wrong - a perfectly crafted cappuccino is a must, but equally as important, at least to me, is the aesthetic. It's downright essential if you spend a lot of time in a place, right? I've made my way through a majority of London's coffee spots, so I'm sharing my favourite 7 that not only offer an amazing selection of coffees, food, and pastries but are also beautifully decorated. That's an Instagram win-win.

A complete guide to buying jewellery

A complete guide to buying jewellery

Fashion  |  London
With the festive season fast approaching, now is the perfect time to buy something significant for that special person in your life. I think Astley Clarke's jewellery is hard to beat when it comes to their extensive selection of products, across all prices and finishes. However, for something that is more purse-friendly I love Asos and & Other Stories for beautiful, trend-led pieces that will last more than just one season. This post was inspired by the recent launch of Astley Clarke's Icon Nova collection - which I had the pleasure to wear during this shoot. The new 14kt rose gold jewellery collection is incredibly elegant and precious (as you'd expect) and inspired by astral explosions frozen in time.
