14 May



Mother’s Day 2017 – not the day I imagined it would be many, many months ago. In eight days time my second daughter, Charlotte Rose, was due to enter the world and the welcoming arms of her parents, but here we are… Without her. This quote seemed quite fitting today: “A MOTHER IS NOT DEFINED BY THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN YOU CAN SEE, BUT THE LOVE SHE HOLDS IN HER HEART” – Francesca Cox. I wish all the mummies out there a wonderful Mother’s Day, and an extra special bit of love goes out to all my fellow ‘angel mums’. May today be kind, gentle and a little softer for you – even for just a few moments.

Last week I was lucky enough to be part of a very special (girls only it seems!) Mother’s Day tribute photoshoot for Oh It’s Perfect!, alongside Lana Wilkinson (mamma to Elle & Ava), and Nikki Pash from States of Style (mamma to baby Hazel). As you are about to see this high tea at The Stables of COMO took ‘ladies who lunch’ to a new level! A big thank-you to everyone who was involved – all suppliers listed below FYI. SJ x
