Almost every day of the year, I wear a scarf and the days I don’t, I regret it. It is an essential part of a layered outfit, it keeps you warm, it keeps your perfume… it is the growing up version of a cuddly. In the last weeks I’ve discovered that my daughter loves wearing my scarves, sometime she’ll pretend she’s cold so I let her wear it. It’s adorable and even though I really don’t like walking around in the Irish breeze without protecting my neck, she can have the scarf… watching her wearing it makes me happy.

I’ve just discovered those beautiful scarves from A Peace Treay. I like the story behind it as well, the aim of keeping ancient handcraft techniques, the unicity of each pieces.

It’s been more than a year since my last post… and a lot happened during that year. Yes, you’ve guessed it… I’m back in mamaland. After my last post, I got myself pregnant again, went through a pretty awful pregnancy, gave birth a month early to a gorgeous little girl. And it took me another 6 months to completely “recover” and get my act together… So here I am.. I am back!

I thought it would be appropriate to post about the maternity collection Koka Mama. I like that it’s chic and that it doesn’t look like maternity clothing. Well, there’s a point when there’s no denying “the bun in the oven”… and yet those ladies look stylish and lovely. (Anyone who had seen me at any stage of my last pregnancy would certainly not use those terms to refer to me, I was no stylish, nor lovely.)

A lot of my friends have had their first babies in the lasts days, weeks, months or are just about to pop… apologies for only posting this now my dears. But for your next pregnancy you now know where to shop!
