Stepping Out Sunday

I know I have been slack with posting Stepping out Saturday or Sunday, but really every weekend I have been so exhausted from DJ still not sleeping I roll out of bed and pull on my favorite cashmier jumper, with my favorite 7evenforallmankind jeans! It seems to be my weekend uniform. Whats the fun in taking pictures of your self dressed like that. I dare not look at photos of my self taken looking like this.
So Here is one of my more stylish Stepping out Sunday outfits, taken in the South of France.
Mama wears cardigan from Zara, little cami top from Jaegar jeans from Tommy Hilfigre.
DJ wears stripy top from H&M Dungarees from Zara socks from JJ at Debanhams

Keeping up with the Jones...

We had DJs 12 month developmental check up done last week, and the health nurse said he was behind in his words, and was behind in walking. Why is it that our babies are compared to other babies, and that when they haven't met their mile stone when the book says they should, do we as mothers feel like failures or that we are doing something wrong.  When I was at school I was always behind, I am dyslexic, and my teachers said it was because I wasn't working hard enough. They used to make me stand up in class and read aloud to everyone. I would go bright red and get all hot and sweaty, I would get so nervous I couldn't see the words, and I would mumble something and all the words would just mixed around. I sat back down in embarrassment, and would get teased by the boys in my class for being dumb. Luckily my parents would build me up and say that I was great at other things. Why is it that we all get compared to other people? Why cant we just be happy that we are individuals? You know DJ may be dyslexic like his daddy and I, but he has other amazing attributes.
DJ has become incredible cute over the past few weeks. Not that he wasn't cute before its just that his personality has become even funnier than before.  I suppose its in his genes, so I don't think I expected anything less than a real performer. He has a fake laugh (which sounds a little like an old English gentle mans laugh) which he does to get peoples attention, once everyone is looking at him and smiling at this cheeky face, he starts to flirt and coo and babble. He sings and has surprisingly good rhythm for a baby/toddler. He gives me kisses and flirts with me when he wants something, which of course I fall for hook line and sinker. He has a way with people, where he seems to wrap anyone around his little finger. As long as he has people skills he will go far in life, and I will guide him to be the best person he can be. Not to feel like a failure if he isn't good at something, just to always try his best and thats good enough for me.
Each and every one of us are unique and have amazing qualities. Some people are not great in large groups of people, or don't really say what's on their mind, in fear of being judged, yet are able to express them selves so beautifully in the written word. I suppose thats why blogs took off. I know I for one, may be an actress and come across very bubbly, but I am actually really shy, and this performance I put on is really just an act.  I feel I really express my self through writing without being judged.

So lets celebrate the fact that we are all different, and that DJ can not yet recite a piece of Shakespeare,
He can charm the pants of anyone and I am very happy with that.

Love to you all

Sun Glasses

I love my sunglasses, I adore my sun glasses. I literally can not live with out them. They hide a multitude of sins, they make me feel safe, I feel naked without them. I always carry 2 pairs with me. One on me and one in my bag.
My love affair with sunglasses started when I was 4 when I had a white pair with black spots on them. I really fancied my self in these sunglasses and felt really grown up. My mother always had a pair of sunglasses on her even when it was raining.

My favorite pair  of Sunglasses are my  Chanel ones, I have them in Brown and in Black.
This summer I am looking for a new pair. The bigger the better.

What are your favorite pair of sunglasses?

How I wish I was in Paris

This week and weekend Andrew has been away so DJ and I have been trying to keep our selves amused. So after our Cannes trip last week, we are feeling very French. I have been trying out new french dishes, been watching French TV, I hoping that if DJ watches French cartoons he will pick it up.
I adore anything French and I love Paris, especially in the Spring Time.
I am just imaging DJ and I sitting in a quaint little cafe along the river over looking the Eiffel Tower, drinking coffee and eating macaroons....

Cannes here we come!

I can not tell you enough how excited I am to be jetting off to Cannes this weekend. Poor DJ has had some virus, they weren't sure what it was, but he had a very high temperature and has now come out in a horrible rash all over his body. So that coupled with sleepless nights, we are pretty much running on zero. So with DJ on the mend, I am now turning my attention to what I am going to pack.  Cannes is impossibly glamourous and of course is the home of the Cannes film festival. So far this is what I have in mind to pack.
Little sun dresses, some black flats, pair of jeans and a my favourite stripy t shirt and stripy jumper, and a sun hat.
DJ will also me in stripes, this is France after all! ;-)

I will of course be trying to channel one of my style icons Bridgett Bardot, seen below hanging out in Cannes.

Ok I am off to pack..
