When we found out that the Honey Monster was on tour we just HAD to work a visit into our half-term schedule.

To celebrate the new Honey Monster Puffs recipe, HM himself has been on tour bringing some #funmonsterfied to shopping centres around the midlands area. We were due to be visiting a friend in the area, Queensgate in Peterborough was on our route – we couldn’t resist a trip!  View Post

I love a good linky and one of my favourites is What I Wore Wednesday over on Transatlantic Blonde. I have dabbled a few time joining in with my cloth nappy edition and with a little chat this morning with Kelly over at More Than Just A Mummy the joint host Cloth Nappy Love linky was born! So here is my post this week!

This week my choice is this lovely nappy from Babipur and was £14.99. It is a Close Parent and the print is only available in a swim nappy at the moment. Although they have this pretty brilliant Robot print nappy! Ah I should not have looked! The new prints are brill!

It really suits my cheeky monkey!

Adela Nursing Jumper Blue & White Discreet Feeding £35

I was sent this lovely Breton striped jumper by Yummy Mummy Maternity wear. It’s a great breastfeeding jumper and great for the colder months.

What I love most about the jumper is that it isn’t obviously  a breastfeeding or maternity top so you’ll be able to wear it long after breastfeeding stops too. The quality of the fabric is nice and I have been matching with dark blue skinny jeans and some rather rocking Blowfish boots over the last month. I think the top would also look fab on anyone wanting a work jumper before they head to maternity leave too. Pop with a black pencil skirt and flats.

 

Shall I keep the hat or give to Fizz? #drwho

Snoob Breastfeeding Scarf in Olive £25

I have to admit I am loving this scarf on the school run! Wrap around 3 times for a lovely scarf, unwrap to cuddle up baby and feed, take off and give to Fizz to keep warm when she leaves her scarf and school or use as a blanket if you really need to.

The scarf has much more fabric then it looks like on this photo, enough to wrap around Froglet and give him a snoozy cuddly feed.

I will say that without the breastfeeding element this is one of the nicest scarfs i have ever owned. The fabric is lovely jersey style and the Olive green goes with everything!

Wedding planning, as soon as we got engaged I started dreaming about wedding dresses and my best friend and I instantly went on the hunt for the perfect dress! I think I’ve found it, but I can’t share it with you just yet!

 

Wedding accessories are rather like the icing on the cake, they can make a bridal outfit look even more spectacular! BHS have a fabulous range of affordable  bridal accessories and I had the opportunity to review a couple of pieces, this is what I thought!

 

The first piece I chose was the Silver Lily Tiara, I’m not a person who has ever dreamt of looking like a princess (well, not since I was 6!) but this piece caught my eye as it reminded me of something I saw in a designer collection a while ago. It’s stunning, the diamantes really catch the light, and I love that it can easily be popped into long hair using the comb and then pinned securely. Even with a fairly messy up do it works beautifully:

 

 

Having children, I really need some form of handbag on my big day to store a few of multitude of bits they’ll insist on bringing, but I also wanted a bag which I could use again. This Ivory pearl box clutch is gorgeous, the beading is only on one side so no fear of snagging your dress, and while it has all the glamour I want for my wedding, it would also be ideal for using for a summer event e.g. the races! While I love it as a clutch bag, it does come with a handy strap too (and no doubt that will come in useful!).

 

The diamante clasp really sparkles beautifully, and it looks much more expensive than the £23 it is!

 

One of the wedding accessories I have debated hotly, is a veil. I always thought I would love a long flowing veil, but when trying them on I’ve felt awkward and they’re not me! The ivory sparklecomb hip veil is a fabulous length, and at £25.00 it is a bargain! The sparkle is quite crudely glued on, and while I’ve practiced putting the veil on a few times the sparkle has lifted and I need to either re-glue it or replace the detail, it is however very pretty.

 

If you’re looking for pretty bridal accessories which won’t cost the earth, I would recommend looking at the BHS wedding collection, as I’m delighted with the silver lily tiara and the beaded clutch bag! They will both be featuring on our big day!
