Kids playroom idea’s

Uh oh I’ve been pinning like a lunatic again !! This time I’m obsessed with playroom decor! With so many gorgeous ideas all over the place I’ve picked out my favourite dream playroom for Jasper.

My inspiration has been Kourtney Kardashian and her children Mason and Penelope new play area. As seen in Instyle Magazine.

** A-list Bump Alert **

Scarlett Johansson IS pregnant with her first child.

2013.10.07-mrconservative-5252fd6947799

The 29-year-old is expecting with Fiancé Romain Dauriac. The French journalist proposed to the He’s Just Not That Into You actress around six months ago with a Vintage diamond engagement ring.

Although Scarlett is thought to be around five months pregnant, on February 28th she attended the Cesar Film Awards in Paris. Wearing a classic jacket and trouser combo, the only hint of a bump you saw seemed to be the bottom of her jacket which sat away from her usually flat stomach; but aside from that Scarlett looked trim, healthy and glowing.

I for one cant wait to see what style Scarlett chooses for her pregnancy, whether she sticks with her Parisian chic or goes Vintage belle, one thing for sure she will look beautiful throughout.

New Mum Essentials!

Midweek-funny-picture

After pinning my way through Pinterest recently, I’ve come across quite a few companies that sell these New Mum, New Baby and Mum-to-be hampers, and its given me inspiration for this post…

When I had Jasper for the first few days not only did I feel like I had been hit by a bus, but I did not have a scooby doo what to do with this very tiny person. I mean this thing that had been kicking the shit out of me, sticking its feet under my ribs and sitting on my bladder for the last eight and half months was now laid in front of me, three weeks earlier than expected and he practically shot out, talk about giving me the shock factor! I hadn’t even packed my hospital bag! So, actually these new mum hampers would have come in very handy; as this is what happen’s when you don’t pack your own hospital bag:

My brother bought sanctuary towels instead of nappies to the hospital. TRUE FACT!

Ive put together a couple of hampers  (without the hamper)  For you to get some sort of idea of what you need… The Luxury and the Reality…

The Luxury New Mum Hamper

New mum essentials

New mum essentials

Eye Mask – You sleep when they sleep!

Reality – If you have other children, a Job and a house to run sleep becomes a luxury. But if you don’t then you can pick this one up this gorgeous one on notonthehighstreet.com. 

Candle – The scent is relaxing and calming.

Reality – Will cover the delightful smells your newborn will produce. Jo Malone has some gorgeous fragrances.

BB Cream – Will make your skin flawless and cover up sleepless eyes.

Reality – Not even a shovel and cement will cover the bags under your eyes. But this YSL one is worth a shot, its like magic in a tube.

Washable breast pads.

Reality – Great idea but who really has the time to wash your breast pads everyday? But if you fancy these, you can pick them up from love milk. 

Beautiful lace nude coloured underwear.

Reality – Between you’re leaking boobs and blood loss after birth, it’s properly wise to buy dark coloured underwear. Your boobs will also go MASSIVE as they fill with milk so buy a size bigger! And your knickers a size smaller! Elle Macpherson nursing Bra and Marks and Spencer pants.

Sleepwear

Reality – You will most likely be pooed, weeded and sick on so probarly best not wear your finest in the first few weeks. Get yourself to primark ! But if you like these ones head to mamamoosh

Now what you really need !!! 

On top of the above you will need the following:

Fotor0304133641

Paracetamol – You will feel aches and pains in places that you didn’t even know existed!

A blowup ring – This ring is perfect for all those new mums that have had a vaginal delivery. Trust me sitting down will hurt! Amazon

An Ice pack – To put on your bits and pieces whilst sat on the ring.

A breast pump – So someone else can do the night feed and give your boobs a rest!

Pads – You will need pads in every size for every area. Supermarket’s own brands I find the best!

Nipple Cream – Your boobs will hurt and become sore. Slather this gear on or be sorry. Mothercare

Epsom Salts – Just because they are AWSOME! Find them on amazon for the best deal.
