Happy 1st Birthday Grayson Winter Wolfe

Leave a Comment
I'm currently sat up in bed writing this post at 11pm at night with Winter fast asleep beside me. To think this time last year I was having contractions and I'd just got sent home from the hospital. I was only 2cm dilated so my husband was running me a bath to ease the discomfort. I remember the contractions being intense and really bloody uncomfortable! My waters broke around 5am on 25th January at home as I walked into our bedroom after being sent home yet again... but this time I knew I needed to get to hospital. 

 
We spent the day having contractions and our beautiful baby boy Grayson Winter Wolfe was born that evening on 25th January at 8:32pm. I could write a whole chapter on the whole labouring process but A LOT happened so maybe I'll save that for another time. I've been finding it hard to get my head around how quickly one whole year has gone by... I've cried numerous times the last week or so. I just know I'll be a blubbering mess in the morning!


Our wonderful, smiley rainbow baby is growing up and he's becoming such a character. He knows who we are, his whole face lights up when he sees Mama & Dadda. He adores is sweet pup Pumpkin and its so wonderful to see them play together. I look forward to all the new memories and adventures we're going to have. 


A Letter To Our Wolfe Cub
Darling Winter,
We adore you very much and we're so thankful to have you. After waiting years for you to be in our arms, we are happy to have such a sweet boy like you for keeps! I often watch you sleep and have to pinch myself that you are real. I/we love you so much and thank you for making me a Mummy. Your Dadda adores the bones of you too. We feel very lucky my darling boy.
You'll forever be Our Little Wolfe Cub.
Love Mama


Tomorrow we are making a pack up and taking a trip to the Sealife Centre, Winter loves Finding Dory so I can't wait to see his face when we get there to see all the fishes!  Followed by a family gathering on Sunday at my Grandmas/Great Grandma (Gigi) house to celebrate with a cake and a few presents. 

I've always wondered are any of my readers parents? I'd love to know in the comments below!

Wilder West // Erstwilder

Leave a Comment
 As soon as I knew Erstwilders next collection was Wild West I was ecstatic! I love anything western so I was extremely trilled. 

This retro-inspired collection was designed by my talented Aussie friend Donna Mizzi. Congrats lovely! This collection consists of 15 pieces with 12 brooches to chose from, 1 set of earrings and 2 necklaces. Something for everybody!

Here's the rundown of my 3 favourites below:


Lucks A Fortune Necklace
$44.95 AUS// £24.95 GBP (Prices may vary)
Outfit Details
The attention to detail is truly beautiful with each resin piece put together by hand. It will definitely bring you good luck. I often don't wear necklaces like these but this one has changed my mind. Will be the perfect accessory to add to your outfit. My personal favourite from the whole collection!

 
His Girl Friday
$44.95 AUS// £24.95 GBP (Prices may vary)
Outfit Details
Cropped Cardigan: c/o Mak Sweater can be purchased from Campbell Crafts // Top: from Pinup Girl Clothing
Isn't she the cutest?! Her gorgeous red mane that has flecks of glitter that twinkles in the light. Your true companion. She won't disappoint you!


 Bill The Kid
$39.95 AUS// £24.95 GBP (Prices may vary)
Outfit Details
Blouse Knitted Top: c/o Mak Sweater

Billy is one sweet little goat but he sure is one tough cookie! He's oh so friendly and his sweet little neckerchief will be what everyone's talking about. Reminds me of one of the goats from a childhood nursery rhyme. This one is my sons favourite!

New Year Blues // Campbell Crafts Vintage

2 comments

Happy New Year my loves! Did you all have a fantastic festive Holiday? 2018 is going to be my year, I can just feel it and excited to see what it brings. 

If you follow me on Instagram you'll know that I'm going through a pretty stressful time in my life with where we live. It's caused my anxiety to sky rocket but I take it day by day and try so hard to stay positive for our son Grayson. 

We decided to create a Go Fund Me page to get some help with funds to move house as soon as we can. The generosity of strangers and friends makes us so incredibly grateful. We still have a way to go to hit target but we'll get there! If you wish to donate click here.

Grayson was definitely the highlight of my year and I'm truly grateful I get him for keeps. He turns 1 in 20 days and I'm not ready for it! My baby is growing up far too quickly but at the same time I'm excited for what adventures we'll have.

Outfit Details 
 Diner dress & Mak Sweater cropped cardigan both available at Campbell Crafts // Blue velvet belt: Taken from a Collectif dress // Snowflake brooch: Christmas gift a few years ago // Boots: Hush Puppies old ones // Hair flower: Tara Nashville Flowers // Glasses: Bonlook Keiko frames - similar ones here // Necklace & wedding ring: BMM

Due to the weather being freezing cold my outfit choices consist of wearing tights and cardigans with everything! I love swing dresses and this diner version from Campbell Crafts is easily a favourite of mine. Its made from soft cotton, pulls in the waist just right and overall fits like a glove. I went for my current sizing of UK 14 which was spot on. I teamed it with a cropped cardigan (full review of these here), tights, ankle boots, hair flower for added colour and finished with a brooch to complete the look.

Whats the weather like where you are? I know my best friend in SoCal doesn't really have Winter weather! Haha!
