Holly Willoughby pregnant in blue dress

The This Morning presenter, played it pretty safe during her pregnancy and stuck to wrap dresses, and figure hugging maternity dresses. Holly knows how to dress her body, even when not pregnant, so it’s not a surprise that she looked fab throughout her nine months of joy. You can check out more celebrity maternity style on the Bump And Me Blog HERE Bump And Me Blog...

Baby Weight: Be Gone

o-KOURTNEY-KARDASHIAN-WEIGHT-LOSS-570
One thing that winds me up about today’s culture, is bloody celebrity magazines and the DAILY MAIL!! Don’t get me wrong, I love to read them, but there is nothing worse than seeing new celebrity mums, prance around in their bikini’s, without a stretch mark or roll of fat in sight, like a day after they have given birth! I just don’t get it! And, with headlines such as Tamara Eccelstone LOSES six stone, in a week! And lets not forget Queen #Selfie herself and new mum Kim Kardashian, snapping every chance she gets, of her new trimmed down...

Luxury Child friendly holiday: Done

_DSC3673
I’ve always been a massive fan of posh hotels, and chic city breaks. But since becoming a mummy, my crazy weekends away to Paris, circulating the chic bars and restaurants are somewhat non-existent these days (sad face) When booking our latest’s holiday, we knew it would be a whole different kettle of fish. The boxes that needed to be ticked were: Kids Pool, Kids entertainment, Kids Menu, Cot in room along with our usual requirements of a five star establishment with a comfy bed, amazing restaurants, spa with ocean view and not mention a free...

So off I went to Mothercare; with Jasper, to take a spin in his new wheels (and pick a colour) but, just as everything...

NutriBullet: A Kitchen Must Have

Diets!!! Been there, done that, bought the frigging t-shirt…. Jumper, bottoms… you know how it goes! Well, after gaining some terribly inconvenient pounds of late, I needed some miracle to shift them, before the BF came home from work (he works away) in a couple of weeks. Anyway, if by some Jesus moment (you know the one, you see in films) Up popped the Nutribullet, whilst on my Internet travels. The Nutibullet has a super powerful 600 watt motor that literally zaps fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds into an incredibly potent, concoction...
