Unisex Babywear – Matalan Baby

**[Gifted-Ad]: Matalan kindly gifted me some baby clothes, which I’ve decided to photograph and write about as I’ve shopped at Matalan for years, but didn’t realise they did such lovely baby clothes. So thought I’d share…**

When we had our daughter 3.5 years ago, we didn’t know whether we were having a boy or a girl and being the forward-thinking, progressive mother than I am, swore that I’d only dress my baby in unisex babywear either way. The whole pink/blue thing was old-fashioned to me. I myself, have never been a fan of pink clothes and I enjoyed picking out lots of grey, yellow and white unisex babywear.

Now obviously, when we had a girl, we were inundated with little dresses (often pink) and less gender-neutral baby attire. And of course we loved these just as much as the unisex items we’d chosen ourselves. I mean a little baby girl in a cute dress is just too much! However, of course our personal style comes through when we shop for our kids doesn’t it? I see myself as a feminine woman but not a “girly-girl” when it comes to my personal style – I love wearing dresses, but can mostly be found in jeans, jumpers and UGG boots/flats. So our daughter’s wardrobe probably reflected my own (and I love a bit of twinning!). There have been more than a few occasions where I purchased clothes for her thinking that our next baby would be able to wear them too, boy or girl.

I often get invited to events as a blogger and some are better than others and in honesty, I’m so busy with work and family life now, that I really only go to ones that genuinely intrigue me or for brands/businesses I love. So I didn’t quite know what to make of my recent invite to B Works, a bank for entrepreneurs in Manchester…Continue reading

Guided Meditation in Manchester – Cacao Ceremony

[PLEASE NOTE: THIS EXPERIENCE WAS GIFTED BUT THIS IN NO WAY INFLUENCES WHAT I’M ABOUT TO WRITE NEXT…]

The cynic in me never thought I’d be attending a Cacao Ceremony (of course, I’d never even heard of one) and experiencing a guided meditation in Manchester (or technically the outskirts in Alderley Edge) – but I am so glad I did and here’s why…Continue reading
