Gifts for Newborns, Baby Shower and 1st Birthday Ideas: Etsy Shops, Instagram Boutiques & More

06:39:00

I never before realised how much fun it was to buy baby clothes and other baby accessories until a few of my friends around me have started to have their own little bundles of joy. Since then, I've been living out my baby obsession through all of them because I swear everything is SO much cuter when it comes in miniature form and I just can't resist buying fluffy sleepsuits with cute little bunny ears and baby grows covered in Winnie the Pooh and Eeyore designs. My time spent scrolling through Instagram baby boutiques, Etsy shops and the likes of NotOnTheHighStreet are what have inspired me to write this guide!

I recently came across the Etsy shop of Annekajambabyart (Also @Annekajambabyart on Instagram) and I just fell in LOVE. She is the queen of all things floral art and everything is just so cute and girly. She makes name art made from flowers and individual floral letters which would make the perfect finishing touch to any nursery - and also a wonderful 1st birthday gift. Not only that but she also makes FLORAL MINNIE MOUSE EARS! If they don't make you go 'awww' then I don't know what else will - plus I'm pretty sure she sells them in adult sizes too...

Another recent favourite is a bespoke frame & wooden nursery decor store on Instagram @picture.this__xo. They actually have an Etsy boutique too here. They have a lot of their custom orders on show on Instagram so I would definitely check them out as they can make everything to your taste. They make bespoke floral frames to fit in with any nursery theme and the most gorgeous wooden swans, glitter crowns and unicorns. Very dreamy.

Valentine's Day Gift Guide For Her 2017

12:49:00

Let's be real, this time of the year probably sends panic through the bones of most guys! Valentine's Day is just around the corner and for all the organised men in the world (the ones who don't make a quick run to the local petrol station for chocolate and flowers on February 13th) you've probably realised that you need to start looking for a gift for the gal in your life to show her how much you love her (aww). So, I thought what could be better an idea than to create my very own Valentine's gift guide to give all you men a helping hand that have never heard of the likes of Anastasia Beverly Hills and Yves Saint Laurent!

New Year, New Wardrobe For 2017!

11:10:00

Although a week or two late, we have entered a new year, the year of 2017! I don't think there has been a better excuse than now to get hold of some key new pieces for the year, you know what they say.. 'new year... new wardrobe!'. I also think a wardrobe update can do tonnes to boost your confidence and really let your personality shine through, whether you're following trends or creating your own looks.

 
Taking inspiration from some of my fave models off dury - Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid

I personally base my style around what I feel most comfortable in and I want to break out of that zone this year. I want my go-to outfit to stop being the basic pair of jeans I've reached for 100 times over already and a cosy jumper I know won't cling to me and emphasise my lumps and bumps. I want people, or at least someone, to look at me and think 'wow I like her style' so that is my new years resolution, so revamp my style so I have a wardrobe full of super stylish clothes that I feel fab in!

Continue reading below to see some of the hot pieces that you'll hopefully be finding in my wardrobe this year, and maybe yours too..
