As a first time Mum, I am super excited for Mother’s day this year!

As soon as you see that little red cross or the word ‘Pregnant’ flash up on the test, it’s hard to contain your excitement from the world! After buying and taking as many tests as you can get your hands on (just to double and triple check that you aren’t dreaming), you and your partner start to wonder how to tell your loved ones.

I can’t believe it’s that time of the year already. The cosy knits, Chelsea boots and textured layering of the winter season seems to have passsed in a blink of an eye! I don’t know about you, but I’m happy to say goodbye to that freezing cold weather and welcome a little sunshine into my life, and wardrobe too.

At the Grammy Awards, it seems the more unruly the styles on the red carpet the better! This year was no different with celebrities dressing dangerously sexy.
