The Good Life

1Z5A9495

This week, after Grayson had landed at nursery, my husband Stef had scooped up all his cameras, and I had finished painting my face, we both swung our legs over his Vespa and rode into Chelsea for our traditional Monday morning blog photo session. Today on the menu was a little eatery that was recommended to me to try out when I decided ... Read More »

Dear Gracie,

1Z5A7428

Dear Gracie, You’re two years old now. You’ve just learnt a new trick, where you’ll show me something in your hand – “What’s this, what’s this?” you’ll say softy, as I edge ever closer to see what it is you’re pointing to, then as soon as I’m close enough you’ll let out your loudest ‘ROAAR!’ Your dad taught you it in ...

Wantfeed Wife

1Z5A8846

Quickly think of the biggest thing you can; a house, the earth, the universe, that spot that’s just appeared on your chin over night. Okay, got it? Now turn that big thing into a ‘thank you’, then take it, from me. There’s really no ‘thank you’ big enough for believing in my husband, for backing his ideas and always acknowledging his creativity ... Read More »

A Season Of Change

1Z5A6887

#ad The heavy grey winter sky seems to be well and truly behind us now, ushered out like that guest that fails to realise when it’s time to leave. The dappled light of spring is now creeping into our evenings, and bursts of colour are starting to soften the well-trodden streets of London. Nothing better reflects this transition than spring fashion. So what ... Read More »

Grayson’s Toddler Bath and Bedtime Routine

1Z5A6547

*This is a paid for advertorial I was buried in a comfortable couch perched between my sister and her now husband Steve in their old, damp smelling Finchley flat; all of us had faces dancing with the flickering glow from the TV screen. We were all watching The Gremlins, a cult film from 1984 that every single person in the world has seen at least twice. (I’m positive ... Read More »

A little march around Chelsea

1Z5A7006

Who fancies going for a good old fashioned march around the charming backstreets of Chelsea with me? Come on then, let’s go… I love this part of town, but I always leave feeling poorer than ever. I remember the time my husband and I had some free time so decided to look at house prices in Chelsea. We found somewhere advertised ... Read More »

Springtime blooms

1Z5A6767

I’ve learnt two main things so far in my 27 years of being on this little floating rock; one is that is that you should never listen to what the weather app on the iPhone says, and the second is that striped tops are such a wonderful thing to own, and it is literally impossible to ever own too many of the things. I’ve learnt ... Read More »

Spring in my step…

1Z5A6337

Just when I thought winter would never leave us, spring has finally awarded us some long forgotten sunshine – it’s so nice to have you back! Bright yellow daffodils are reaching skyward, the scent of life washes over you when you open your front door, but most importantly pastel hue jeans become acceptable to wear. Come this time of year, cream is my ... Read More »

Peter Panning…

FullSizeRender

At *cough27cough* years old I feel I should try to contain my excitement at a pending sleepover but, well I can’t and I’m not ashamed. I’m like the adventure hungry Peter Pan accept with crows feet and toddler stained jeans, I’ll never stop Peter Panning! So, when the lovely people at Asda invited myself and the rest of the Michalak clan to ... Read More »

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

0V6A5333

For a few years now, when this time of year rolls around, when the signs have been hung and the adverts ring around my home for Mother’s Day, they have brought with them a sense of isolation and longing. It’s times like this that the sadness of not having my mum around is normally heavily amplified, but since having my son, Grayson, that ... Read More »
