I just came back from my very first and very brilliant pregnancy photo shoot with Julia Boggio. To work with Julia was fun and uncomplicated, in the way that she makes you feel completely at ease with yourself. And despite being convinced of never ‘doing a Demi’, I very willingly dropped my clothes as if […]
The other day at my local supermarket, little L in tow. I was scanning the tinned tomatoes aisle (exciting stuff, I know), when a good looking guy peeked around the corner, checking us out. I had seen him earlier upon entering the store. Our eyes had met and he looked as if he’d been stricken […]
All good in the hood. Had a check up yesterday which revealed the baby has already started to move head first into the pelvis. Which would be impossible if I had a severe stage of placenta previa, i.e. very good news. You can read more about this week’s pregnancy pains and aches here. On a […]
That’s it – I’m coming home. Tomorrow will be the day to pack bags, desand beach toys and finish off the three last lonely ice cream cones that linger in the back of the freezer (fear not, I’ve got two very eager helpers readily at hand). It feels as if we’ve been away forever, and […]

Yikes, I can’t believe I am well into my 29th week already. Where did the time go? It feels as if the magical blue line on that stick only appeared a few days ago; yet I am supposed to hold a newborn baby in my arms in ten weeks time. I remember people asking me […]
Risking to bore you to death: St Tropez is still great and still beautiful. Whilst Big M had to go back to London to work this week, my friend E has come down from Paris to join us. It’s oestrogens galore with E, little L, me and the baby girl bump.
We’ve arrived. After two days of driving, a sleepless night in a motel and being hit by tennis ball sized hail, we have arrived in St Tropez. I am trying not to think of the newly acquired dents that adorn our car now, but to focus on one thing: relaxation. The bump has been awfully […]
Long gone are the days of oversized tents and empire style monstrosities to hide burgeoning bumps. Today’s maternity wear is fashionable and en vogue, and with the launch of the latest Séraphine Luxe collection, it’s red-carpet-ready, too.
