I’m a small business owner, leaving a career in women’s fashion retail after the birth of my eldest Son. After I had my second little boy I decided to do something for myself and Velveteen Babies was ‘born’ (check out @velveteen_babies on Instagram if you want a peek at what I do!) I also like a good chat, even if it’s putting virtual pen to paper and writing this pregnancy come whatever blog.
As a style conscious and design loving mama, I’ve been hooked on Instagram for sourcing design led decoration, products and clothing for my boys (and now for baby no3!) and I am lucky enough to belong to a wonderful society of brilliant mother-kind, everyone so diverse and inspirational. I’m over at @coral.atkinson where I feature the boys, myself and our life at home together (the Instagram friendly version of our life anyway!!)
I started this personal blog to document my third and probably final pregnancy and baby growage. I love researching and sourcing awesome things, and this is a perfect excuse to take nice pictures and have a natter about them.
I’ll be honest, share tips and my miracle product finds, and anything else that might be helpful to other mothers to be. I hope you’ll find it semi useful or worth a read, you’ll have to let me know if you’re also in the same boat or share your own tips, I’d love to know.
