Homegrown - The local brands I love

NAF Salon

Well would you look at that, the wanderer returns! August has seen a brand new start for me and my lil' family. We've moved out of Glasgow, back 'home' towards the town I was brought up in, and bought our very own house with a garden, and a garage, and a bedroom for Reuben. So now we have numbers 4 and 10 ticked off the 30 before 30 list, yay! This new home has given us a lot of the factors we have been craving since I fell pregnant last year (mostly, SPACE!) so making this move was a mix of happy and sad tears, as we waved goodbye to city living to start a new chapter further out into the suburbs. With the last box unpacked today, I thought it apt to do a little ode to Glasgow and some of the favourite brands I have discovered, and fallen in love with, from our Dear Green Place.

A day in the life of Reuben

Chicco Next 2 Me

Our little baby Roo is now 4 and a half months old, and I'd be lying if I said I've got this whole parenting thing down, but we're definitely getting the hang of it now. On a good day I can get up and out the house before 10am, and on a not so good day I realise it's 4pm and I've not cleaned my teeth or eaten. Some days I don't even brush my hair, and some days Reuben naps for long enough that I manage flicky eyeliner AND cleaning the entire flat. This boy gets more likes on instagram than I do (Can I really blame you though? No, no I cannot) so I thought I'd share an insight into his average daily routine.

The Fantastic Five - June Edition


HEY YOU GUUUUYS. It's been too long since my last blog post, as usual. Despite Reuben being in more of a routine and sleeping through the night, it means he's sleeping less during the day and we've been out and about so much I've literally had zero chance (or head space) to sit down and write a post. I've got lots of fun content to post over the next couple of months but you'll need to bare with me - even one blog post a week is proving tricky at the moment. So today I'm just popping in with a wee life update/favourites post to give you a round up of what I've been loving lately. I'm gonna try to do this once a month for sure. The things I'm Watching, Listening, Eating, Reading, and Loving. So, here goes!
