Tunage Tuesday with Boom Clap Bachelors

I'm quite surprised that I had not heard of this band until the other day. I literally Shazamed this band at work and now I am hooked! Boom Clap Bachelors exactly what I've been looking for. I am a music fanatic! I am always looking for a new tune or band to listen to and lately I've been looking for something that grabs my heart, well ladies, here it is! 

Have a listen it's so great!

My Obsession with Babaá

Now that it's properly cold out, all I can think about is warm, amazing, comfortable jumpers! I love myself a beautiful jumper and I have just the brand that makes just that! I met Marta the owner and designer of the Spanish brand, Babaá last year at the Babyccino ShopUp. I was instantly obsessed with her beautiful collection of organic jumpers. Her jumpers are so tastefully designed and beautiful you almost want to hang it on the wall to stare at. She now designs jumpers and cardigans not only for your little ones but for us fashionable mamas as well. Heaven! Hopefully in the future I can get Edith and I a jumper from the ever so beautiful Babaá! One to work towards!

What's in My Bag?

I got asked by Julie from Rue La La , a members only shopping site to write a post about what's in my handbag. Check out their website and definitely check out their handbag survival guide! Great info ladies! 


I was delighted but a bit nervous as my handbag is by no means grand! And the essentials in my handbag are well essentials, things I can't live without. 

This last spring I was absolutely obsessing over Anthropolgie's Peach Pink Planate Backpack. I literally went to the website everyday waiting for it to go on sale and then one day it did!!!! I ordered it with such excited and waited anxiously for it to arrive! Unfortunately, when it arrived it was damaged so I went into Anthropologie and exchanged it for a perfect one! This bag has been loved. It's the perfect size, so easy to carry over your shoulder and yep, you guessed right it turns into a backpack!!!! A dream come true!

So what do I put in this great bag of mine, you ask? Well, it's pretty straight forward;

  • My diary, I cannot leave home without it. It is literally my bible. If I haven't written it down then most likely I will miss an appointment.
  • My notebook, for all my ideas and notes.
  • My handy pen, I only use fine point pens. My handwriting looks much better with these pens!
  • Urbanears Headphones, the best headphones, such a great sound.
  • My wallet Nat & Nin black leather wallet from Little Paris in Crouch End
  • Clarins hand and nail treatment, the best!!!!
  • My make-up bag. I will do another post soon about what's in my make-up bag. (But carries my chap stick, lip gloss, travel foundation, eye drops, extra contacts, tiny travel deodorant, perfume and of course mascara!)
  • My amazing Le Specs cat eye sunnies!!!!
  • And my i-phone, which I have just upgraded to an i-phone 6 yay!!!!!
So that's about it. Sometimes I find a dummy in my bag as I have a 2 1/2 year old or an odd toy, but normally I'm pretty basic, but never under estimate your everyday essentials. 

When  I'm traveling or know I'll be out all day I carry a little survival travel bag. It's tiny, but it has everything in it, from stain remover to a tiny toothbrush, to face wipes. Sorry I forgot to include it in the pic but you can purchase it through Sephora

I would love to know what's in your bag and what you think is a lifesaver?

Advent Calendar Trinkets

 love the excitement of advent! I probably get more excited about it then Edith, my little one. I enjoy finding little trinkets for a big surprise each morning. Most people give chocolates for advent but as my little one is 2 1/2 years old, chocolate isn't an option. I enjoy finding little things that she can fit in her pocket or walk around with . Stickers, tattoos, cars, crayons are big hits for my little one at the moment. I figured advent happens only once a year so why not make it special and exciting. I want to create a lovely memory of this wonderful time of year. Happy Advent!!
