As you've all seen from our Instagram and blog I'm soon going to be becoming a mum! With only a week to go now we wanted to fill you in on what this means for TGUE and to thank you for all of your well wishes and kind words of encouragement along the way.
There's something about kimonos that I just can't get enough of during the summer months. Thrown over a t-shirt, bikini or cami dress, the styling options for them are endless and I'm especially loving their versatility with the bump. Long or short, printed or embroidered for me it's a life long love affair rather than just a one season fling.
It’s not often you find somewhere in the world where you never want to leave. Somewhere you could imagine living one day or having a second home. Well for us it’s the Costa Brava Coastline and we can honestly say it’s one of the most romantic, gorgeous, unspoilt stretches of coast in Europe.
As you're all probably aware by now Wendy and I both love a good jumpsuit. It's our go-to wardrobe staple at this time of year to take us from day to night and is the instant throw on piece when you want to look like you've made more of an effort than you actually have.
So it’s that time of year where hopefully we’ll be baring our skin. Now I’m not sure about you but some parts of my body resemble something of a reptile after winter. The cold winter months can really dry out your skin leaving it dehydrated and flakey. A quick fix to resolve this is with a body oil. Oils provide your skin with the moisture and hydration it needs to recover.
The High Low is a weekly news, pop-culture and current affairs podcast, co-hosted by Pandora Sykes and fellow journalist, Dolly Alderton. The High Low covers both the trivial and political, celeb gossip and hard-hitting cultural happenings. These girls are smart, funny and so entertaining. It's not the same without my weekly hit and it’s the best way to pass time on any commute.

Now I'm not a big Jazz fan but Melanie De Biasio's new album Lilies has me swooning over her voice. Melanie De Biasio is a Belgian vocalist who mixes jazz, blues, and soul. She’s an amazing singer and composer and you can see Nina Simone is a clear influence, as seen on the piano-driven title track. If you're reading this and don't know her work, please sample this amazing album.
