So, lately I have found myself wandering around the children's section of all my favourite stores and bypassing the 'grown up' section. It's been all about the homeware for a while now anyway but now shopping has reached a whole new level.
I was wandering in H&M the other day (I was desperately searching for cute leggings for Olive- I didn't find any) and I found myself walking past rails of gorgeous new seasonal clothes in ladieswear. I felt a little fed up. Hard done by maybe. "When will I be able to buy myself something again?!" I'm sure the answer is similar to "probably never!" or at least "hardly ever".
I do love buying for my little lady and it'll only get even more fun buying for her as she grows older but I do wish to treat myself every now and again. Even if it's a new jumper or pair of sunglasses or even a new Essie nail polish.
1 Neom Complete Bliss// 2 Jo Malone cologne English Pear & Freesia and Earl Grey & Cucumber// 3 Crabtree & Evelyn Almond milk soap// 4 Essie Worth the Wait & Hubby for Dessert// 5 Rococo rose wafers// 6 Mama Mio Goodbye Stretchmarks// 7 Diptyque Violette
These are a few luxuries that are in my favourites. My Neom candle is very nearly out and I've wanted to replace it for a while and they have some gorgeous scented ones at the minute. Anything Lavender or Rose is a winner for me. They are quite Luxe but hey a girl is worth it right? And they last for ages.
I have wanted to add to my Jo Malone collection for some time. My scent is Wild Bluebell, I wear it all the time- even if I'm having a Pyjama day- it makes me feel good... and smell great! I really want to try the Earl Grey & cucumber (for obvious reasons!!!) and the English Pear & Freesia- that one just sounds gorgeous.
As a new mama I rarely get a moment to myself let alone to paint my nails but these Essie spring colours are just perfect and I'm sure I can convince S to have Olive cuddles?! Also the Mama Mio cream is more of a necessity- I had the Tummy Rub which I wore religiously and worked wonders! Oh, also Rose chocolate wafers--- I don't really need to say anything!!
1 Baby sleep pillow spray// 2 Little Unicorn swaddles// 3 Neal's Yard Bath & Body, Baby Oil and Baby Barrier// 4 Natural sponge// 5 Sophie la Girafe bath toy// 6 Yellow mac// 7 Pull Along bunny// 8 Alphabet blocks// 9 Beatrix Potter puzzle
As mentioned, I spend most of my time searching the internet during nighttime feeds looking for wonderful things for baby. I honestly can't resist. I have probably been doing this for months now! Honestly. A few things I have my eye on are some natural products for bath time- Neal's Yard sound so lovely and natural. We have the soap already for when we need it for her- it smells great.
I also have my eye on the Lavender pillow mist. I'm not sure if it's suitable for newborn but if it is I am definitely making it my next purchase. Olive has a small lavender filled pouch in her cot already but this would be just perfect. Anything to help with sleep.
I am also obsessed with wooden toys. I am not one for the brightly coloured plastic toys you can get everywhere. They just don't last very long and they mostly have annoying sounds and rhymes. I really love the old-fashioned style toys and I have stumbled across some organic, natural wooden games that I will be purchasing for my dear little lady.
Also, this yellow mac... well, she just HAS to match her Mama right?!
