Our girl/mom crush on Phoebe from Model Appetite continues into a shopping section... because of your love for her and her new mom-hood ways we've created an entire section for you to see and shop her favorite pieces from comfy formal ware to the best baby secrets on the planet...take a peek!
I’m definitely more a high street kinda girl as opposed to a high end kinda lady. Mainly because I just can’t justify spending the money and now any money I do have goes towards nappies, babies wipes and Sudo cream. Oh the glamorous life I lead. So with that being said, Zara, Cos and Uniqlo are my absolute go to’s. In terms of pieces it has to be a beautiful, crisp, oversized, white shirt. Even on those days when you just can’t be bothered (which for me there are plenty), chuck on a cool, white shirt and you alway look like you've made an effort. I also love a perfectly tailored t-shirt. Easy to wear and can be dressed up or down. I’m pretty sure I have a t-shirt in every colour for every occasion!
I’m not great when it comes to styling my own hair. It’s either all down, in a ponytail or in a topknot. Sadly nothing overly exciting but what does excite me immensely is dry shampoo! It is my saviour and just like the white shirt it gives the image of effort even if it was a mere 5 seconds of spray, fluff and go.
I’m obsessed, OBSESSED with peanut butter. I can eat it by the spoon (of which I do quite regularly) but as an alternative to that I love scooping it onto slices of apple (Pink Lady to be precise). The sweet and salt is a beautiful combo and is hands down my favourite ever snack be it summer, winter and everything in between. My favourite summer meal is what I term Chicken Lettuce Cups. Chicken thighs marinated in soy sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil, garlic and ginger then cooked on the BBQ. Tear up lettuce leaves into “cups” and serve with sliced cucumber and carrots, crushed peanuts, bean sprouts, chili, Vietnamese mint, Thai basil and sweet chili sauce. It’s super light and refreshing and I love getting
my hands messy.
My husband and I loved the idea of linen bed sheets but when we discovered we’d need to remortgage our home in order to buy them we did our research and discovered these amazing cotton linen look bed sheets. The price of cotton but the luxe look of linen. It also meant we could buy them in five different colours and is a great way to constantly refresh the look of our bedroom.
How long is a piece of string? I’ve come across some awesome products for V but I’ll give you my top 3:
- The Lulla Doll - discovered by my mother in law it’s a doll that breathes and has the sound of a heart beat. Sounds terrifying I know but it’s a God send and puts V to sleep in seconds.
- Mokosh Pure Body Balm - an organic skincare brand which I came across during my pregnancy. I use the Pure Body Balm on V’s dry little cheeks which has kept them as silky soft as her 'other cheeks’!
- Tooshies Nappies - V was born 3 weeks early so was quite a bit smaller than most newborns. Therefore finding nappies to fit her teeny tiny behind was a challenge but Tooshies were the perfect fit and super cute too.
