Lola Rose bracelet giveaway

There is not much a pregnant lady can do to be truly fashionable – at least not when you are, like me, four weeks away from giving birth and literally bursting out of all seams. However, one thing that won’t go amiss (and would make a brilliant baby shower / push present *hint hint*) is […]
