Just as a quick respite from all things baby, I am so excited for my birthday! I love birthdays. Love them, love them. I don’t think there’s anything better than celebrating throughout the month and treating yourself here and there. I put together this list a few weeks ago, but I’ve had to update it all over again just because yes there may be a few things I just have to grab for myself on here…


All white

Not baby friendly, but who doesn't love a little white broderie? I've ordered this little beauty from Miss Selfridge and also love this, which I'll be needing a discount code for if I lay my mitts on it b/c it is not cheap but... so classic and very pretty.

A basket bag

I've had this cute little number saved on my Etsy favourites for yonks. Made in Portugal, the basket bags from Alba ATN are all totally perfect for summer and sustainable, too. I recommend a look around if you fancy a little temptation.

Summer days

Yep, still hunting for summery breast-feeding friendly stuff. I love a chuck on summer dress that = absolutely no effort but still looks chic day to night. This H&M dress ticks the boxes and comes in a few different shades, too.

Reading material

For those times when baby is here and sleeping - those rare 5 minutes for a hot cup of tea (ha, ha) and a little peace and quiet. My favourite magazines are Red and Good Housekeeping - both of which have offers on right now, so I’ve whacked them on the list as a real bargain.

Little luxuries

If I can't go in with the little things this birthday...! Something sparkly. Champagne trufflesShower gel in a summery scent.


All this being said, when I turn 29 around mid June I will be 37 weeks pregnant.

So let's be honest, this post is a total frivolity.

All I really want is a cold glass of rosé (a small one - come on, birthday girls are allowed!), a big slice of cake and a healthy baby would just be - well, the icing on top!
