Don’t you wish kids came with a warning? Like, when you go in for your first ultrasound, someone should tell you, “By the way, this kid is going to destroy everything you own.” Kids are wonderful, don’t get me wrong. But they’re like little hurricanes that blow through your house on a daily basis. One of the most costly casualties is clothing. When a new outfit gets drawn on, hurled on, or cut up with play scissors, it’s like money washing down the drain.
We are so excited that soon life will be back to normal and we can’t wait to start partying again! If you need some inspiration we have some gorgeous ideas to share with you from Femme Luxe. They sent us some cute dresses and we will show you on this post. You can always check their website and see the great collection they have!
We have been lounging for a year now and as much as I love the comfort of my own house, a nice cup of tea and comfy clothes its time to start shaking things up and getting ready to get out in the world again. Season is also changing and we can finally see the sun more often. With warmer days in the horizon and lockdown restrictions slowly easing we can finally feel hopeful that life will start looking more normal in the near future. So while we are still enjoying the lazy days, get your best over for a cup of coffee and check out these super cute and comfy lounging sets by Femme Luxe. Just look at us. I also love the fact that our sets are contrasting. We did not plan it at all…it just happened. The one I am wearing is the Femme Luxe Pale Pink Belted Loungewear Set and is very stretchy and the material is very nice. They have a variety of colour options for you to chose from.
LOVELOX is a brand new British brand, specialising in beautiful personalised lockets, made by hand from precious metals and natural diamonds. LOVELOX offered me to design a locket for myself to see how easy the process is, and I am very impressed with the end result. With Valentines Day coming up imminently, these personalised lockets would make a lovely gift idea especially as you can make it so meaningful with your choice of photographs and inscription.
Motherhood is a beautiful journey. Once we find out that parenting life is in the horizon everything changes. And I mean EVERYTHING…especially our bodies. Of course we know and prepare ourselves mentally for all these changes but there is no amount of preparation to get us ready for it. It took me a long time to understand and accept my post baby body. I went trough many thoughts, diets and self deprecation to finally appreciate this perfect machine that my body really is. After 3 years of breastfeeding and solely dedicating myself to my daughter I have to admit I did not feel like myself when I looked at the mirror. Very few of my pre baby clothes fitted my new post baby body. And after fighting and resisting I decided to appreciate it and love it just as it is. It was not easy but I found a new type of sexy that I have never experienced before.
What worked for me and helped to regain my confidence was taking selfies. I would force myself to put some make up on, do something nice with my hair and wear something a bit more provocative. Trust me this was a long process. You need to commit to it and eventually you will get that perfect shot where your face and your body will look incredible. It will not always work. You will delete hundreds of pictures out of the hundreds you took. Do not be disheartened. It worked for me and I am sure it will work for you too. When you see that perfect shot of the perfect you all will make sense and slowly your confidence will come back. Ypu will look at that picture and see yourself again and eventually you will love the new you.
You have probably seen a previous post we made about the gorgeous pieces we were gifted by Femme Luxe a few months ago, where we tried out some of the lovely t-shirts from Femme Luxe. Now we are going to share with you some of their amazing lounge wear collection. Anna and I had such a great time shooting these pictures and we will break it all down for you in this post. If we are all going to be spending so much time indoors lets try and make it as comfortable and pleasant as possible right?
Let me start by saying I am obsessed with comfy clothing. So much so I am always buying clothes that are sometimes 1 or 2 sizes bigger than my actual size just to make sure they fit nicely but mostly they feel comfortable. As a stay at home mum I am constantly moving around the house chasing my very active daughter, so comfy and resilient attire is a not vanity… it is a necessity and I am sure all the mums reading this will agree. Now combine these qualities with an outfit that is actually cute and will make you look like the coolest mum on the block! Femme Luxe just did that.
If you’re naturally drawn to green, there are many beautiful gemstone options for you to choose from. From the deep jungle-green of emerald to the citrus hues of peridot, there is a perfectly-toned gemstone to match everyone’s skin tone, hair colour, and wardrobe colour palette.
As well as looking gorgeous, green gemstones are full of magical and symbolic meanings. Gemstones that are rich green in colour are said to represent nature, renewal and new life. Emerald, for example, is the birthstone for May which is perfectly fitting for such a fresh green stone, evocative of spring and summer time. Birthstone rings are timeless and a good-quality gemstone ring can be even passed onto your children someday. Gemstones represent your birthday tribe and each birthstone has a myth associated with it. Gemstones can be a perfect gift for your dear ones. Stackable birthstone rings, for example, can be a perfect birthday gift.
In addition to this, green gemstones are believed to represent balance and harmony and they’re thought to be exceptional mood balancers. Some even believe that they strengthen the connection between the mind and the heart and help you to better express your emotions. Others associate green gemstones with great wealth, believing that wearing a green gemstone is sure to improve your finances.
Whether you believe in the symbolic meaning of green gemstones or not, we can all agree that they’re truly stunning to look at. If you’ve fallen in love with green gemstones and are planning a new addition to your jewellery box, read on to find out more about some of the most beautiful types of green gemstones.
The emerald is undoubtedly the queen of green gemstones, and probably the one you’re most familiar with. The emerald is a variety of the mineral beryl, and it is formed when beryl contains the impurities chromium and vanadium. Emeralds can be found all around the world, but there are certain locations in which truly spectacular emeralds are located, such as Columbia and Brazil.
Over the centuries, emerald jewellery has been much loved and highly coveted. From the ancient Incas to the Hollywood actresses of the 20th century, no one has been able to get enough of this stunning green stone. Today, vintage emerald rings, necklaces, and bracelets are very popular, and this bright and bold gemstone can smoothly be incorporated into modern outfits.
Christmas is a few days away and if you like me leave it for last minute and are still shopping for gifts, or if you just need to update your own wardrobe with some new fashion items then you should definitely consider checking out the Femme Luxe website for some unique and super stylish pieces, which you can order online. We recently received some lovely gifts from the Femme Luxe Blogger programme, including t-shirts and loungewear and I will show you some of them here in this blog post.
The Femme Luxe website is gorgeous and very user friendly, and also easy to navigate. They have a great range of products available that range from loungewear to party dresses to shoes, accessories and more – and all at very reasonable prices. I received two beautiful T-Shirts which you can see here in the pictures above and below, and also a loungewear set.
The gemstones, the diamonds, and the gold never go out of fashion for a jewelry lover. Any piece of jewelry studded with diamonds and stones signifies grace and beauty. Jewelry can bring out the best features in women. Not only this, buying a piece of jewelry is a sign of fame and success.
