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 […]
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.
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.
I am having a few ‘hit by a truck’ days. Nothing that a 30-minute afternoon nap couldn’t fix, but still hugely annoying. Especially now that I’ve got more to do than in a long time (more on that later). I am starting to wonder whoever came up with that golden trimester myth. Ah, who knows, […]

Because there has been a bit too much drama on this blog lately, now for some lighter entertainment: fashion. And because all my pocket money goes to tiles, taps and toilet bowls these days, I am concentrating my sartorial creativity on little L. Pastels are all the range this coming season – or so I’ve […]
When my husband asked me last summer what I wanted for my birthday, I mentioned a golden Michael Kors watch and an evening clutch. Generous and lovely as he is, Big M set out to get me both. Also, adventurous as he is, he chose a Michael Kors clutch that didn’t have my previous seal […]
The first item I bought from Blanc Bleu was about four sizes too big – a washed-out, jeans blue and oversized jumper with white stripes around the lower third. It was so baggy it almost reached my knees. The sleeves kept on slipping over the back of my hands and right up to my fingertips. […]
Flipping through one of my favourite magazines, my attention got caught by the above image. I am not a prudish person. Still, I found myself wondering why exactly the model’s breast is exposed. I don’t mind people going topless at the beach if that’s what makes them happy. I don’t mind a bit of erotic […]
