Primark Baby Clothing Haul: Winter Edition

Hello,

Recently I picked my son up a couple of winter pieces as we are coming to the end of the summer (if you can even call it that) and I thought that it might be fun to show you what I picked up.

The first thing that I picked up his actually the reason that this haul is happening and that I did this damage to my bank balance. I had never gone up to the kids floor in my local Primark and just my coincidence I went up to it on my way to the floor I wanted in the lift and I saw this coat and I was obsessed! I had to go and pick it up. It is this beautiful little mustard parka coat with a faux fur hood (which is removable) and I think that this is such beautiful quality – I can not fault it. 


The next thing I picked up was this little coat. Again it is the same style as the first just in this lovely khaki green. We couldn’t get the first coat in Oscar’s size as he is very small for his age so we bought the first to put away for a little bit and this one for now.


How bloody cute is this little denim jacket? I bought this mainly because Oscar’s Daddy has the same one and I wanted them to match which you may have seen on my Instagram. It is again, really lovely quality and this one have the little faux sheep kind of collar which is such a lovely detail I think.


The last thing I picked up was a simple but staple piece. This cute little knit jumper in mustard (can you tell that I love my son in mustard). It has these cute little buttons on the size and I think that this is a wonderful transitional piece for autum.

Nursery Tour

Hello,

So, this is a post that I have promised for bloody ages. I have been waiting for the room to get to a point that I was happy with before I showed it in a post. It has finally gotten to that point and I am so excited to give you a nursery tour! If you read my Home Wear haul: Nursery Edition – you will have seen some of these bits before!

So here is an overview of the whole room, as you can see I have gone for a white, grey and blue theme which I am obsessed with.

Here is his cot-bed which he has recently switched to from his crib (why is he getting so big?). I think that the actual cot-bed is from Mamas and Papas, this adorable Dumbo bedding is from Dunelm, the decorative cushion is by Sass and Belle but I got it from EBay, the blue and white blanket that Oscar sleeps with was hand knitted by my cousin and lastly, the little bear is a Barcelona bear that my mum got him while she was there and he adores it – he sleeps with it every night.


Next, we have this little draw from IKEA and if you are wondering they do actually come with different colour stickers for the handles or you can leave them white. I love the little bits and bobs on top. It is just a little collection of the gifts we received when he was born along with a couple of other nice things like – the Born in 2016 box which has all our keep-sakes in and the Mickey Mouse figure that we bought whilst in Disney when I didn’t even know that I was pregnant! We keep all this nappies, wet-wipes, towels and bath products inside the draw.


Here, we have Oscar’s toy basket which is from H&M and his rocking horse (which is vintage and bloody adorable).


On his radiator, just to make it look a bit prettier we have this blue and white bunting which I actually do not know where is from – sorry! As we live in a flat we cannot hang things on the walls so I just lent these little white frames against the walls and they read – You are our greatest adventure, Let me love you a little more before you are not little anymore and Dream Big Little One.


One of Oscar’s favourite areas! Here we just have his little bouncer/play gym and his little Planes toy – which he gets hours of fun out of.


Here is Oscar’s wardrobe – possibly the least organised area. These are of course from Ikea again. We just have his changing matts on the left and cushion for his bed that I need to get an inner for on the right. On the top, we have – a box with some bath products in, nappies which are now too small, a box with all the cards that we received when Oscar arrived and some little decorative bits.


On his window sill, we have all his books and just some letters that spell out his name.


Lastly, here is a little shot of my little man on his little H&M grey and white rug.


I hope that you enjoyed this and I think that it will be really lovely for me to look back on to see his first big boy room!

An Open Letter To The Father Of My Child

Guest Post Series: Loneliness in Parenthood with Lifemilk2016

Being a young/single parent and experiencing loneliness.

It feels weirdly good that an opportunity has arose to write my first post surrounding loneliness in motherhood, thanks to the brilliant blogger that is Keighley. I am in the process of launching my own blog but I felt I had to get involved in this particular topic because it is something I experience often.

For those of you that do not know me or have not come across my twitter (@LifeMilk2016), my name is Jen and I have recently turned 28. I have an 8-year-old daughter, in year three and I guess I first ever experienced loneliness going back to when I was pregnant in 2008. I was 18 years old, and had fallen pregnant at a time when my life was all about going out, dating and having fun. I had always had a huge group of friends and was planning / hosting our teen days out which changed dramatically, once I decided to have a child. My peer group dropped me, I guess because i could no longer binge drink, party all night long and have girly holidays. Being so young, terrified of becoming a mother and feeling alone throughout my whole pregnancy – is something I will never forget!

An Open Letter to My Pre-Baby Self

Dear Pre-Baby Self,

I know you have this image in your head of what being a mum is going to be like, what you are going to be like as a mum. You have images in your head of a happy and content baby, you still looking super glam and you are completing perfect little activities that you saw on Pinterest. I am taking this opportunity to tell you all that I know now 8 months into motherhood. It may change in a years time but, here is what I have learned so far.

The Boyfriend Tag

Hello,

More a silly, fun post today. I thought that doing the Boyfriend Tag might be fun not only for me and my partner but, for you to read. So here we go (wish me luck).

1. When is my birthday? (What is my sign?)

Your birthday is 29th June and your sign is … (sounds unsure) Cancer.

That’s correct, I’m surprised he was unsure of my sign though I talk about it all the time. I am one of those annoying people that say “That’s because I’m a Cancer”.
