Blogging Again


So it's been a while since I blogged...in fact it's been half a year!! *insert hiding monkey face emoji here* Err, since then a lot has changed. I've had a baby! Hahaha, in case you hadn't noticed the missing bump!? And if you follow me on YouTube of course you did know that already but I haven't officially updated you all on here yet so it feels weird to ignore it. On March 30th we welcomed our third baby, Alessia Francesca to the world. She is absolutely beautiful and perfect in every way; you can watch my labour & delivery story video here and also her monthly updates! I will do an official blog post on our newest addition soon but in the meantime, here's a good old outfit of the day!

Since Emilia & Eduardo went back to school in September, life has been a whirlwind of breastfeeding, school runs, packed lunches, six fluffy barking dogs, nappy changes and attempting (very badly) to squeeze work life in there too. It's been hectic, to say the least. I thought back to school would make it easier but truth be told, I feel like now we're busier than ever! I love it though...I adore being their mama and wouldn't change it for the world. However that all means that blogging has taken a bit of a backseat but now that Alessia is 6 months old I'm ready to jump back into it. 

I've managed to sort out some childcare a few hours a week so I can get back to work and so far it's only been a few days & I am loving it. I want to do it all but I find there aren't enough hours in the day! Being a mama is definitely my #1 priority but at the same time I don't want to give up my career either. I let so many opportunities pass me by because I simply cannot do both, so now I'm ready to take the reins as I'm beginning to feel more myself again. 

Onto what I'm wearing! Today my sweatshirt is from a local boutique called Joie de Vivre and the brand is Sweats.Co. I'm wearing a size medium Neon Tri Star jumper in navy blue. I love it! The feel is amazing & it's such a cosy yet casual piece! Unfortunately this colour is out of stock but I've also got this grey one with a neon pink star. My jeans are from All Saints which I purchased about a year ago and I'm wearing a size 28. I'm not sure if the ones linked are exactly the same as mine have zips at the ankles but they look extremely similar! My shoes are Converse Ox Festival Trainers (I'm wearing a size 5) which I got from ASOS earlier this year. These are unfortunately now out of stock but you can get a similar pair here which don't have the embroidery on them. 

I hope you like the look - also don't forget to check out my YouTube channel this evening at 8pm for a new video (Alessia's 5 & 6 Month Update!) and I will see you guys on Wednesday!

  29. I'm so happy you're back!!!! I've missed reading your blog, and all of you're OOTD's, if it's not too much trouble I would love to know where your sparkly clack and white long sleeve tee that you posted to Instagram a few weeks ago is from.

  32. Yay - so wonderful to have you back again even though I love your videos too. If you don't mind I have a baby gear question please. What is the rand of the bathtub on legs that you use for Alessia? I have back issues and this seems like a great solution as I prepare my fertility plan and future wish list of gear. Much appreciation and welcome back. XOXO

  33. Hi Anna,

    could you do an update on your skin routine and make-up? You told us in de vlog that you changed your foundation to bare minerals, did that work for you? I'm curious, also with the effects of your post-pregnancy hormones on your skin. You look flawless and I'm looking forward to your uploads!

  37. So glad to see you are back to work I've missed a normal mom on YouTube and blogging. Someone who is genuine and real about life! However, I'm also so happy you did take a "maternity leave" like you said in the vlog the other day it's the same but different for you guys. But again so glad your back!!
