Working from home has so many benefits, sometimes though it can get a bit stuffy and I am someone who very easily feels like they are getting cabin fever if they don’t get out at least once a day.

I love to go and work in a coffee shop sometimes – It’s nice to be around other people whittling away on their laptops and chatting amongst themselves.Β We usually find ourselves in Maida Vale, there are a few nice places to sit and work or have lunch either on Elgin Avenue or a few roads away in Warwick Avenue.




To be honest it’s not an area i would say to come and visit if you are new to London and are exploring, as theres not too much here but it’s a nice place to come if you live in West London and want somewhere new to come and have a flat white and maybe stroll around a nearby park.

Oh, It’s also quite a lovely area for blog photos if you’re into that kind of thing! πŸ˜‰




At 37 weeks pregnant, finding clothes that still fit come few and far between. I could buy some more maternity pieces but with around 3 weeks left of pregnancy I feel like its pointless! I love this jumper from H&M, I bought it in a medium and it fits fine over my bump is EXTREMELY cosy!

I miss my favourite jeans so much at this point! These ones have been my stand-in’s, then I paired them with some casual converse (because sciatica has ruined heels for me) and my classic flap.








An easy, ‘Throw on and go’ outfit.Β Thats all you really want at the end of pregnancy! Especially on a chill day

    A little word from France πŸ˜‰ Courage Samantha from another Sam !

    I remember the last days of my pregnancy with my daughter i was at the same time exhausted and full of energy, it was weird !

    I can only imagine how finding clothes can be during the last months of pregnancy, but you look really beautiful Sammi, that bag is gorgeous and I love the leopard print scarf

  3. I’ve never heard of Madia Vale before! Definitely will have to check it out πŸ™‚

    And we must be so similar! I love being at home, but if I don’t get out at least once in the day then I feel like I’m going a little stir crazy!

    Surprisingly I often work better in a busy cafe, sat on my laptop with a cup of coffee. I think it’s more the fantasy of it sometimes that helps me to concentrate, but theres nothing wrong with that!

  21. to be blamed on those doing the exercises – the foundation purpose is the physical games themselves and the ill-suggested weight loss program hints that all too often accompany them.A large chest doesn’t must be impossible

    I have notice in you a change, you have morphed into a strong woman and I love how your look and photography has become more in tune with that.
