Introducing baby Ashley :)

Scarf- Witchery (loving this one  for Winter)
Heels- Zara (similar here)

Hi all! Sorry it's been a bit quiet on the blog lately, but I have had my hands full with this adorable little fellow.  He's just over 3 weeks old now, and I can't believe what a blur those 3 weeks have been.  I've had a few requests for some pics of me with my new bub so here they are- these pics were actually taken when he was only 5 days old but I've only just got around to blogging them! SO tiny-actually he still is :)

I'm loving being a mum, and my husband has taken to being a dad like a fish in water and is absolutely smitten with his son. We try and have a little outing each afternoon- a walk around the park, a late lunch or as simple as a coffee.  And I must admit I'm not missing work one bit!

To the outfit- this is still my maternity clothing.  You can see me wearing the knit here, and the pants here during my pregnancy.  In fact this outfit is pretty much my go to most days- being rather sleep deprived and scatterbrained, I tend to pop on the same outfit every time I leave the house ;)  Soooo, these pants, this knit and some cute leopard print ballet flats is certainly comfortable and presentable!

Borne Naked


Check out this genius creation by clever lady, Amanda George.  It's a clear handbag liner designed to help you de-clutter and get organised. Borne Naked  liners come in three sizes: small, medium and large.  The medium size is perfect for most of my handbags so I've organised my everyday essentials into it to make it easier to transfer them from one bag to the next.  The large size is perfect to stash my nappy bag essentials- I can then toss it into the bottom of the pram, or into one of my large handbags.  Brilliant!

Oh! I also made a couple of Vine video's of me using these liners- find me on Vine at 'MichellesStyleFile'.

I'll be back with outfit posts soon :)

It's a boy!

I am so pleased to introduce you to my brand new little fellow... 
baby Ashley!

This dear little boy arrived exactly 1 week early at 3.18pm on Monday 25 March weighing 3.12kg (6.9 pounds), 49 cm long and perfect in every way!!  You can see more piccies on Instagram or Facebook : )

My waters broke in the early hours of Sunday (the night I took these pics!!) and then labour kicked in about midday on Sunday.  It all went as smoothly as I could've hoped for with a fantastic midwife and obstetrician. I then had 4 wonderful nights in hospital falling head over heels for my little lamb.  If you had ever told me I would be content to be confined to a single room with a newborn for that long I would've thought you crazy, but it really was the best and there was nowhere in the world I would've rather have been.  My husband was able to stay overnight as well, and with lovely meals delivered and helpful midwives it was a great introduction to motherhood.

Today, 5 April, also marks my husband and my 10th wedding anniversary! I can't believe how time flies, it's been a fabulous 10 years and now there are three of us I've no doubt there will be many more fabulous years to come.  Anyways, I'll share some more on that, and perhaps some wedding piccies another day : )
