MUMMY MONDAY – REAL MAMA – ASHLEY, A Mothers Edit

Happy Monday Mama’s!

It’s the big day for us today. When this goes live Mills will be at school and I will, no doubt, be a blubbering wreck. As the day has crept closer I’ve been getting very emotional. Ironing his uniform and labelling everything sent me over the edge today. He needs it. I need it. But oh boy am I going to miss my little toad.

Today will be all about Mama to take my mind off it. I’m heading for brunch and shopping with my Mama. Pampering and baby prep being the focus of the day.

I was so excited to get Mummy Monday back on the blog last week and it was lovely hearing from other real Mama’s wanting to get involved and chatting about real life as a Mother. Thank you for getting in touch.

Now, onto this week’s Real Mama:

I’m super excited to welcome the gorgeous Ashley from aMothersEdit onto the blog today for a super stylish Mummy Monday. I recently discovered Ashely’s insta feed and can’t get enough of her fashion-inspo, Mama life and all the prettiness. Her love of leopard print and denim got me hook, line and sinker. Over to you Ashley…

Getting to know you

Name: Ashley

Where can we catch you on social: @amothersedit

Website: www.amothersedit.com 

Mama to: Vivienne Rose

What’s your wardrobe must have: Anything denim – jeans, cut offs, levis skirt.

Your perfect way to relax: With plenty of wine

Currently reading/watching/listening to: Just finished watching Stranger Things, it was fantastic, and now we are working our way through Fargo series 2. Next up is the new series of Narcos

Proudest moment of your life: Everytime I watch Vivienne befriending someone in the park, she is so loving and caring of other children it makes me beam with pride.

Words you live by: Let go of the things you cannot control.

Your must have product: Aussie three minute miracle – without it my bleached mop would be a disaster!

Being a Mama

What do you love most about being a Mummy: the way she looks at me for all the answers. The responsibility I have for this little lady is pretty daunting but so special.

What could you do without: Tantrums!

What 5 words best describe your birth story: ‘I try to forget it’ – that’s five words right?!

What should every Mama have in the birthing room: A supportive birthing partner.

What got you through the first weeks with a new baby: Friends and family helping me with the little things- my mum popped over and cleaned the bathroom, friends brought home cooked meals to put in the freezer for us… and they knew when to leave too! Very important!

Funny things Vivienne does: Vivienne is still learning to talk so there are a lot of words that come out completely wrong. But the Frozen song – Let it Go – she has that down to a tee and will sing it very loudly in her cot at 6.30am.

How do you keep Vivienne entertained: Simple things are always the best… currently it’s a tub of water in the garden and she likes playing with her cars and little people jumping in and out.

How did you decide on her name: I wanted something you don’t hear very often and spent hours online looking at various websites. As soon as I read Vivienne I knew it was perfect. So feminine and elegant.

Where do you shop for your kids: I love Zara and Gap. And all her nursery clothes are from H&M – their basic collection is fantastic for tshirts and leggings.

Best piece of advice you could give other Mamas: We go through every aspect of life making our own decisions and learning as we go… suddenly we fall pregnant and loose our confidence. Listen to people’s advice, read the books etc but at the end of the day you have to trust your own instinct and do what feels right for you.

– thank you so much for taking part Ashley. xx

New Kicks: Adidas Stan Smith’s

Whenever he gets new clothes he asks; ‘Mummy can you take a photo of me looking cool?’ ‘Of course I can.’ is always my reply, because yay to all the photos. And so he strikes a pose in his new gear.

As part of his birthday gift from my parents, they’re getting him clothes / shoes as and when he needs them. (Because – too many toys!) First on the list were a new pair of trainers. He’s worn the same pair of converse and vans for over a year now and they are looking tatty as hell. I spotted the Stans at the Kids Footlocker in the Bullring. Obvs had to have them and they look great on him. Combined with his ‘cool jeans’ and new star wars tshirt, he was pleased as punch.

#M2MCLUBEVENT PROFILE: KEUNGZAI

All week I will be profiling the fantastic companies coming along to the M2M Club event – on Thursday 6th June, 7.30pm, at the Old Rectifying House in Worcester. Filling you in on what they do and what you can expect from them on the night – as well as their exclusive offer for attendees.

keungzaiKeung-zai [ke-ung zai] noun: An affordable, contemporary, luxury label designed to be worn pre, during and post-pregnancy. Keungzai is not only a maternity line but a womenswear line for style-savvy, fashion forward women, mothers and moms-to-be. Our customer is not defined by age or life-stage but by a common style aesthetic of directional yet timeless appeal. Keungzai’s mission is to indulge the consumer in quality pieces, designed to fit and flatter her shape.

Keungzai.com, is a destination store that offers a modern aesthetic, available 24/7. The boutique offers Keungzai’s own label and hand-picked brands such as Peaks of London, Cake Lingerie, Amoralia and Hot Milk; this is an online sartorial sanctuary for the chic, modern mother.

The collection is not about the latest trends or the latest must-have items. We are here to disregard the common idea that maternity wear is frumpy and short-lived. The brand’s capsule collection offers unique, distinctive and quality high fashion for women, mothers and moms-to-be.

We pride ourselves in ensuring that our products are made ethically and we strive to use sustainable resources through our packaging. Keungzai is proudly made in Britain using premium materials such as our locally sourced micro-modal luxury jersey; we will endeavour to continually support the UK fashion and textile industry.

On the night Keungzai will be offering: 

  • 20% off all purchases throughout the event
  • 10% off all orders through June, using a special code from the evening

I will definitely be taking full advantage of that. I’ve had my eye on ‘this‘ since it first came on the website.

You can find out more about the event ‘here‘.
