❝I fell in love with this site the minute I saw it. My husband and I have only just started trying so I couldn't yet buy anything for myself; the perfect excuse to shop came when one of my lovely friends broke the news she was pregnant - I bought for her instead!
FABULOUS service, the woman who runs this company couldn't be nicer or more responsive. The text I received from my friend on receipt of the 0-6 months gift box was as follows: 'What an amazing surprise! I love it! It is absolutely amazing, I'm just so speechless and emotional. Chris (her husband) just came in and said "F**k me! What a lovely gift!"
This idea is absolutely fabulous and the woman running the company is so nice I am even considering a doula when I eventually do get pregnant and give birth - which is something I'd never thought would be for me!
Wonderful, I will definitely be a return shopper!❞
Not sure what I was most chuffed about, the fact she loved the service, the reaction from her friend, the F-bomb that was dropped or the fact that I’ve changed her perception of doulas. In all it was a bloody gorgeous review.
WHO WHAT // INSPIRES YOU?
YOUR FASHION STYLE: Not as I hoped it would be, more Oxfam than Instagram. I can only ever dream of pulling off such looks at Dress Like a Mum. I could never pull off a pleated skirt and a plain tee on the school run *sigh YOUR PARENTING STYLE: My own, I listen to my instincts, forgive my mistakes, learn from my children and quite often lose my shit.
BRANDS: Not a brand kind of gal but I do own a kick ass pair of Manolos and have his Liberty print silk scarf framed and hanging in my kitchen; so yes, Manolo. BEAUTY PRODUCT: Molton Brown Vitamin Lipsaver, morning and night and The Sanctuary 24 hour shower oil. BOOK OR FILM: Napoleon Dynamite, never fails to make me laugh, even a picture of him puts me in a happy mood. WAY TO RELAX: Lying on my bed, it’s my escape from the chaos of family/work life. HOLIDAY DESTINATION: I have two. We honeymooned in Watergate Bay in Cornwall and it was the nicest place I’ve ever been to in this country. Outside of this country it’d be New York.
THE LAST //
TEXT YOU SENT: Replying to my friend, telling her I’m free Tuesday. . THING YOU ATE: Toasted bagel slathered in butter, my bad. CALL YOU RECEIVED: My 17 year old son sacking off our lunch date (again) THING YOU BOUGHT: Some storage boxes in an attempt to contain my 4 year olds toys that seem to be taking over the whole house.
