Little Sister's 21st Birthday!!

In March my little sister turned 21 so to celebrate we had a party. I'd treated myself and baby to new outfits so thought I'd do an outfit post. 

Dress is Jane Norman accessorised with a simple long chain with feather pendant and chunky bracelet. My jacket is also Jane Norman which hubby treated me to at Christmas (good job!!). 
The dress was comfortable and fit really well, I love the shimmer the material has. 

And then these amazing ankle boots... 
Boots are Koicouture

My little Mia wore a lovely knitted black dress from Next, which has the cutest detailed buttons and the snow leopard top to match underneath. It was only March so this kept her warm whilst still be dressed for the party. 
On her feet we matched the dress with these little black spotty high-tops also by Next. 

There was also the most amazing cake made by Chelsie's best friend. It had beautiful sparkly butterflies and was as pink on the inside as it was on the outside!

Happy Easter!

 Our Easter was lots of family time, chocolate and dressing up.
This was Mia's first Easter where Daddy and I couldn't nick Mia's Easter Eggs!
Mia & I made chocolate Cornflake cakes!
Egg Hunt...
Where could they be....?
Ta Da!!!
Easter Sunday we saw family and Mia got to dress up in this beautiful new dress! It feels amazing, the material is soft and floaty and even has a shiny finish to it with beautiful sequin detailing. 
She also wears a light pink sparkley cardi from Next and flower headband to compliment the dress.

Little Miss Pink!

Hellooooo Sunshine! 
With the recent weather, hubby and I have been making a start on our garden project. Throughout the year I shall share posts with our progress and hopefully soon the making of Mia's Wendy House and plans for a fairy garden....!! 

Mia's favourite thing to do right now is exploring the garden and with evenings like this who wouldn't love it.
"Always Take Time To Smell The Roses"
Life rushes by too quickly, slow down & take time to appreciate the things around you.

Today Mia is a pink girly, actually She wear a lot of pink...She suits pink! This cute little Tommy Hilfiger Rara skirt was a perfect match to the "I Love Mummy's Cupcakes" (She totally does) Top from Next and until the weather warms up a bit more I''ve matched it with these black Dotty High-Tops (also Next).

Mummy & Daddy say it's time to come in now.....  

But they'll have to catch me first!

Little Peek A Boo

So recently Mia was invited along to a photo shoot to promote "Little Peek a Boo" & "Made With Love" The photos were to be featured in a brand new Bump, Baby & Toddler Magazine.
She got to dress up with some other beautiful baby girls and play in a magical tipi made by "Made With Love"
The dress she wears is the "Pink Tilda". It was a beautiful design with netting underneath so the skirt was full. It was covered pink flowers and even had a 3D rose attached with individual leaves. The flower headband was also handmade by Little Peek a Boo. 
The full feature in the magazine can be found here

About me ~ New Beginnings 💖

I'm 24, and live with my Husband of nearly 3 years with our baby girl, Mia who is 18months. 
I'm a trained hairdresser and MUA and work part time in a salon, and spend the rest of my week with my little girl. 

Hubby and I on our wedding day.

In November 2012 we had the most perfect little baby girl. 
We named her Mia Faith and she was 7lb9.

 This was my her first photo shoot by the lovely Katherine Ashdown Photography at just 10 days old! She I was a monkey & wouldn't sleep, but she still got some proper cute shots. I would recommend a newborn shoot to everyone, they are such special shots and they grow so so fast. 
 Mia has the biggest bluest eyes I've ever seen, people comment on them constantly.

These beautiful hats were handmade by "Knit One Turnbull"

Much has happened since then so I hope you'll enjoy following our little life & sharing my love of all things fashion, baby, home, photography, pretty, sparkly and maybe even some yummy treats.
