Pouting in: Pregnancy & Birth Magazine

To be clear, I’m not pouting in it really… but, this month you can catch me and my beautiful little lady in the December issue of Pregnancy & Birth magazine.

Style: My ‘pretty as a picture’ necklace

I love a good piece of jewellery. In fact, I adore my new Cath Kidston necklace so much, I just had to share it with you all.

A very special announcement…

BEAN has arrived! Our beautiful daughter Elsie Florence Portman was born over a month ago on 20th July at 5.50am after a long and somewhat challenging 24 hour labour. She didn’t make things easy that’s for sure, but I can wholeheartedly say that bringing her safely into the world was the best moment of my life and I’d do it all again in a New York minute. I’ve been so

Waiting for Bean…

Very soon life is going to change. In fact, everything is going to completely change for my husband and I. We’re waiting for the arrival of our little bundle of joy, our now not-so-little Bean.  Waiting for our son or daughter to come into the world and change our lives forever.
