Milkmaid


Autumn is officially upon us so I've been easing my way into the woollier section of my wardrobe! This knitted Maje jumper is a great between seasons piece as it's cropped and not too heavy so it's good for that summer - autumn transition time. I've been loving high-waisted and cropped combinations lately so these Ted Baker ripped jeans went perfectly with the jumper. I teamed it all up with my trusty brown H by Hudson boots from last year; these are probably my most-worn pair! 

In an effort to do something different with my hair I attempted Zoe's beautiful milkmaid style from her recent hairstyles video. What may look effortless in these smiling pictures in fact took me ALL morning as I spent about an hour trying to get this right. I am completely useless at styling hair, let alone anything involving more than two plaits. But a few frantic messages back & forth to Zoe and many bobby pins later, this was the outcome. I'm pretty happy with myself actually! It's not bad for someone who struggles to curl their hair without burning themselves. (Check out the tutorial on how to do this look here!)


I also uploaded a video in which my personal trainer Lucy & I show you how to do an at-home work out with your baby/toddler! We wanted to create something for all my fellow stay-at-home mummies out there who don't get a lot of time to themselves. This was hectic and a bit all over the place with two active little ones but I was sweating buckets by the end of this video! And the best thing is you don't need any equipment, you can do it from the comfort of your own home and it's a fun activity to do with your kids. Hope you enjoy!
