Lunch in Viareggio

This summer saw my second trip to the coastal town of Viareggio in Italy. It’s a strange place, but in summer, it’s a wonderful place to spend the day in one of the many beach clubs.

Next door to the richer, more popular Forte dei Marmi, Viareggio seems a little stuck in the past. Stuck in its hey-dey of the first half of the 20th century, but in a good way. The wide, almost American roads and promenades, go for miles, along the sea front. A walk-way runs the length of the town and takes you strolling past the different beach clubs, some with pools and bars, but all with loungers and cabanas on the beach.Continue reading

Maternity Photoshoot in the Woods

So with my little girl turning one this week, I’ve been totes emosh (!) and reminiscing a lot about the whole experience of motherhood so far.

It’s staggering to think that it’s over a year ago now that I was pregnant, carrying her inside me and that she’s been around longer now than I carried her around for. Mind-blowing.

I’m so glad that when I was pregnant, I took the opportunity to have a maternity photoshoot and to document the whole process as much as possible. I think it’s so easy to forget these moments and I know already, I struggle to remember what it felt like to be pregnant and have that ever-so-special bump. Continue reading

30th Birthday Party at King Street Townhouse

So yes, I know it’s hard to believe, but this is now a Lifestyle Blog of a thirty-something! I turned the big 3-0 recently and had a ball of a time! In fact, my birthday celebrations have extended throughout the whole of July, lucky me.

My wonderful hubby did a sterling job of organising me a suprise 30th birthday party and I genuinely had NO IDEA! God knows how he got that one past me, but I was thrown off the scent time and time again and right up until the last minute, I thought we were just going for a nice meal, the three of us.

So here’s me all dressed-up with the little lady (me in H&M, her in Ted Baker…how does that work?!), thinking that we’re off for a dinner at King Street Townhouse.Continue reading
