PRETTY FLORAL DISPLAYS IN LONDON, CHELSEA IN BLOOM 2019

PRETTY FLORAL DISPLAYS IN LONDON, CHELSEA IN BLOOM 2019

It's that time of year again where South West London is floral overload with the annual #Chelseainbloom floral art show! I didn't get a chance to go last year as baby was only a few old but this year I made sure my sister and I were there the first day :) It's on until this Saturday 25th May and this year's theme is 'Under the Sea'. It's also a great cause as it's supporting the charity Plastics Oceans UK, which focuses on stopping plastic pollution. 

The winning display will be announced on 21st May and they are also running lots of fun events over the next few days including a floral masterclass by Jo Malone, a floral theme afternoon tea at Bluebird as well as sea inspired smoothies! There were so many inspiring and creative displays and it was so much fun walking around Chelsea taking photos of them. We started off at Sloane Square, walked up Pavilion Road, Duke of York Square and then King's road. You can also head up to Knightsbridge to see more. I love the mermaid display at Sarah Chapman and the big lilac jellyfish!

Are you planning on popping along to see the floral art work this year? Which one do you like the look?

LE JARDIN SECRET, MARRAKECH MOROCCO

LE JARDIN SECRET, MARRAKECH MOROCCOOver Easter I spent a week in Marrakech, with a toddler in tow our main agenda was to just relax at the hotel and not cram in too much sightseeing! After a visit to the main square in the hot sunshine and dusty streets, we realised it wasn't a nice environment to push baby around, so I spent a few mornings on my own sightseeing (was also nice to get some alone time!) I had read about Le Jardin Secret and decided to visit there early to avoid the crowds. I asked the taxi to drop me off there but he was confused until he realised it was right in the center of the Medina and Souks. Taxis can't drive down those roads so just ask to be dropped off at the Jemaa el-Fnaa square and it's a 10 minute walk from there.

I was a bit nervous and apprehensive wondering around Marrakech on my own, expecting the worse - getting bothered by the locals and vendors but it wasn't as bad as I imagined and I kinda enjoyed walking around on my own! The locals even directed me and help me cross the busy roads. I made sure to cover up with modest clothing and my camera was safe. I had read Google maps doesn't work around the Souks but it was fine for me luckily, I also made a mental note of the places I past just in case I got lost on the way back! I made my through the colourful Souk stalls and finally arrived at the Le Jardin Secret and paid 50 Dirham (£4)

A YEAR OF MOTHERHOOD

A YEAR OF MOTHERHOOD
 
And just like that my baby turned 1. It's true what they say about parenthood the days feel long but the years go quick! I wanted to share my thoughts and feelings on my first year of motherhood, it does go by so fast and I never really have a moment to reflect and take it all in :)

PRODUCTS FOR THINNING & FINE HAIR FROM JOHN MASTERS ORGANICS

PRODUCTS FOR THINNING & FINE HAIR FROM JOHN MASTERS ORGANICS

Yay it finally feels like Spring! Hope you're having a lovely April so far, this is my fav time of year - flowers are blooming, days feels warmers and I've got 3 birthdays to celebrate this month - mine, Hang's and baby's :)

So with a Spring in the air, I've decided to get out of my slummy mummy rut and focus on myself for a change, starting with my hair! I've never been a hair care kind of girl and usually buy my shampoo with my online groceries shop. Now a days, hair care is top of my list especially when I'm dealing with the dreaded hair loss post having a baby. I had pretty thick and healthy hair whilst I was pregnant. I did hear that thinning hair and hair loss post baby was very common and it wasn't until 5 months, I was shedding hair like nobodies business! It wasn't just a few strands here and there but big clumps and I hated washing my wash, just to see more and more strands. I'm constantly nipping around the flat with our Dyson vacuum collecting all the hair, not a good look at all.

DAY TRIP TO THE SEASIDE, FROM LONDON TO WHITSTABLE

DAY TRIP TO THE SEASIDE, FROM LONDON TO WHITSTABLE

Today is mine and Hang's 3rd wedding anniversary, (here's a post about our wedding if you fancy a read) So with baby in tow this year, I thought it would be nice to have a trip to the seaside to celebrate. We haven't been to the beach in ages and didn't really want to go in the heatwave! Luckily the weather was nice and warm yesterday when we drove down to the Kent Coast to the seaside town of Whitstable. I've always wanted to visit Whitstable, which is known for it's oysters, picturesque beach houses and pebble beaches. We had a lovely time exploring the cute shops, walking along the harbour and admiring the colourful beach huts. Hope you guys enjoy seeing what we got up to on our day trip :)
