August in Instagram


Another month, another Instagram update. I've done these for a number of years now. I love having a quick look back on the month and to kinda just say, hey I'm still here! Instagram is painful at the moment, an app I once loved is now incredibly difficult to grow and I'm fast falling out of love with it so, if you're not following, just search alicespake or click the icon on the right. Stupidly, it would mean more than you realise...

Pregnancy Diary Weeks 32-34


My second pregnancy diary installment has come around a lot quicker than expected! I am now 34 weeks and Splodge is the size of a Quokka, seriously Google it as you won't be disappointed. I wouldn't mind a baby and a Quokka to be completely honest. We have six weeks to go now and we've had a busy few weeks so buckle in guys, I'll try not to make it too long.

Exotic Escapes with Mandara Spa



Going to a spa every week isn't practical for many of us so the at home spa experience has become increasingly popular in recent years. I'm a huge fan of having the ultimate at home spa experience with some trustworthy products and I swear by Mandara Spa for those extra special days. The new Mandara Spa Exotic Escape Collection takes inspiration from the pampering spa rituals of Indonesia, featuring four products you're going to want to add to your bathroom shelf.

What's on Our Cosatto Easi Peasi Changing Table



Well this is exciting, our first piece of baby furniture! It feels like recent months have been building up to the moment we actually get the bigger stuff in and ready for Splodge and it feels so surreal. We ummed and ahhed for ages about a changing table, every book we read told us not to bother and people were quick to label it as an unnecessary purchase but I'm so glad we didn't listen. I'm so in love with our Cosatto Easi Peasi changing table.

Pregnancy Diary - Weeks 30-32



Throughout my pregnancy, I've shared a few of updates on how I've been feeling and what has been going on in my Hello Little OneMy First Trimester and My Second Trimester posts. I'm firmly in my third trimester now and as I want to document the next few weeks in the lead up to Splodge's birth, I thought I'd up the posts a little and just have a chat.

The Decleor QVC bargain you don't want to miss!



Being a big fan of Decleor, I couldn't not share QVC's latest beauty deal with you all. I first discovered Decleor just over three years ago when a really good friend of mine started working for the company as a beauty therapist and they've stayed within my skincare routine ever since. For one day only, you can get your hands on an exclusive five piece collection from Decleor.

Three Face Masks I Love



If there is one thing I love, it's a pamper evening with a face mask, bubble bath and good book. I have tried a number of masks over the years, some I've loved, some I've chucked out and some that keep finding their way back in my shopping basket so I thought I'd share three face masks that keep doing the rounds on my bathroom shelf at the moment.

The Exclusive Eve Babybox at Mothercare



A baby mattress is something we didn't really think about but when mattress specialists, Eve released the Eve Babybox, exclusive to Mothercare, our ears pricked up. We swapped our own mattress to an Eve mattress earlier this year and it was the best decision we made, so of course Splodge needed his very own for those milk drunk slumbers. The Eve Babybox is the ultimate gift for new parents so when the Fauna babybox arrived we were over the moon. Here is what is inside...

Arran and I spent a date night at Cau Restaurant for an evening of delicious food, yummy desserts and the chance to win a trip to Buenos Aires just by ordering some food! We first visited the new Cau Southampton branch back in January and couldn't wait to head back and try some new delights from the summer menu including some Heroes dishes.

My Baby Shower



We celebrated my baby shower at the end of July with my nearest and dearest and I had such an incredible day. My mum and sister did Pinterest proud with fun decorations, plenty of gypsophila and a sweetie table so I thought I'd share some photos from the day.
