I actually think I’ve been pretty well behaved regarding buying a lot of clothes for Baby mainly because of the limited choice of unisex items. There’s been so many times I’ve been shopping and thought ‘Oh I’d buy that if I knew it was girl’ and the same with a boy too! I’ve actually bought a little girls swimming costume already because it was £3.50 in the La Redoute sale and was too cute! I suppose it’s a bit silly really as I’m convinced I’m having a boy but I’m sure someone close will have a girl soon. However, I have developed quite a Baby clothing wishlist now after weeks of not buying anything and I think I’m going to have to pick up a few of these before they arrive. I definitely have enough to keep me going for the first week once Baby is born but it doesn’t hurt to have a bit extra especially in various sizes as although I’m expecting to have a pretty big Baby, you never know what could happen.

Unisex Clothing Wishlist

When I first saw this striped romper from H&M, I wasn’t sure if it was boy or unisex but after gaining the opinions of my trusty whatsapp mummy blogger ladies (they are absolute legends) we decided it was unisex! I’ve struggled to find much in H&M that’s unisex but I absolutely love this and also these little bear booties! Everything’s really reasonable from H&M too and I can see myself purchasing a lot from them once baby is here and we know the gender.

These cute grey with white cloud slippers from Vertbaudet would look lovely with the high neck grey romper from Mamas & Papas. It looks really warm which is perfect for a January baby. I love this sand cardigan which would go with more or less everything, also from Mamas & Papas. There’s some gorgeous clothes on JoJo Maman Bebe and I particularly like this white sleep suit with gold stars. They are quite pricey as this one’s £16 but they are made from the softest cotton.

Moving onto another of my favourite unisex stores, The White Company. Again this simple sleep suit is so cute and I know their stuff is such good quality! I’ve got an obsession with animal items at the moment and the little elephant is super cute! You may have seen me mention on Twitter that I’d ordered this gorgeous animal blanket from The White Company and it’s even more beautiful in real life.

M&S have some fab unisex packs including this cute hedgehog set. I haven’t really got many tops and pants for baby yet as I’m pretty limited with choice but I love this set that’s included. For £20 this includes everything that’s needed in those first couple of weeks until I can get out and buy gender related clothing including 2 bibs, a hat, a sleep suit, a long-sleeved bodysuit, a short-sleeved bodysuit, a lightweight jacket and crawlers. For £6 you can’t beat this two pack of sleep suits from F&F at Tesco, I do prefer the grey one but the white one is still pretty cute too!

Mori are a brand I’ve been stalking since becoming pregnant. Their designs are mainly unisex and I’ve heard amazing reviews about how soft their sleepsuits are. As you may be able go tell, I’m all about the grey so this plain grey all in one is perfect when the little one arrives in January as it’ll be super warm!

Finally, I forgot to include it in my image but I’ve already ordered this fleecey bear suit from La Redoute as baby is due in January so it’s important to keep them warm when we’re out for walks with Daphne! I’ve bought a few bits from them recently which I’ll be revealing in my next unisex haul!

Have you got your eye on any baby clothes?

My hair seems to be growing so quickly at the moment so I’ve been using as many products as possible to try and keep it under control! I’ve been loving the products from Ogario that I’ve been using including their Revive and Shine shampoo*.

Ogario Revive and Shine Shampoo

Ogario pride themselves on building the best foundation for hair by caring for the scalp and hydrating the hair. The award winning Ogario Revive and Shine shampoo focuses on rebuilding and putting life back into dull, boring hair. I’ve noticed my hair is so much shinier since I’ve been using this and also a little less frizzy! As this shampoo is so moisturising, I think that’s why my hair is less frizzy and therefore much more manageable.

The shampoo is actually a bright orange but smells really refreshing. Ingredients include Roobios which is a powerful antioxidant helping to protect hair and fight the effects of everyday pollution, Baobab extract which provides extra volume and Nettle which is a good source of protein. The refreshing citrus smell comes from the lemon, lime and orange oil which helps nourish the scalp.

As all the Ogario products are concentrated, you really don’t need to use much which means the products last. I also like to use this twice before a conditioner so my hair gets a pre-wash especially if it’s been a while since I last washed it. Another, Ogario product I really can’t fault!

Have you tried any products from Ogario?

This months My Little Mademoiselle Box is here and September usually sees the months box linking to fashion as it’s fashion week! This year, they’ve collaborated with Claudie Pierlot, who I must admit I’ve never heard of before but is actually a very famous designer. The box contains another brilliant My Little Beauty product too and I really look forward to these each month. Although this months box doesn’t contain as many products as usual, quality over quantity definitely wins this time.

What’s in the box?

Claudie Pierlot Purse £30
The stand out product this month has to be Claudie Pierlot purse as this is obviously where most of the budget went. Made from leather, the purse is really pretty and although I don’t need a new purse right now I’m going to keep it for when I fancy a change! It’s in a beautiful navy with red detail and in an envelope shape. There aren’t many card slots inside but there is a compartment for coins and a zip on the back too.

My Little Beauty Mascara £12
The My Little Beauty mascara is amazing! I’ve used it this week and it’s honestly one of my favourite ever mascaras. MLB definitely need to start shipping their own products to the UK as I’m going to be needing another one of these. The brush is exactly what I look for in a mascara, large and thick!

Erborian Ginseng Shot Mask £6
I’ve never tried anything from this brand so it’s nice to try something new. I haven’t tried one of these masks at all yet so I’m looking forward to having a pamper night with this!

Daphin Stimulskin plus Serumask £95 full size
The Stimulskin plus promises to deliver younger looking skin over time and upon application the skin is wrapped in luxurious comfort. This is quite a thick cream which is recommended to be applied with a brush. I do like skincare that is a multitasking product like this as it’s a mask and serum in one. The mask is to be wiped off (or slept in if you prefer a more intense treatment) and the remaining serum then works wonders on the skin. I’m hoping this serum/mask lives up to what it promises!

Overall an average box again this month however I think the mascara itself was worth the money! I did miss the little illustration card that’s normally included but there were some pretty images in the magazine instead as you can see from the French Beauty Picks page in my photos. My Little Box retails at £14.95 including postage.

This is the first of many Wednesday Wishlists – baby style! Myself and some other mummy to be bloggers have started this series in the hope to inspire each other (and others) with some of our baby picks, I’ll leave their links at the bottom of this post. I think that deciding on a changing bag is a huge decision and definitely shouldn’t be taken lightly as I’ll be using this bag everyday for the foreseeable future. There are some gorgeous bags on the market now and here’s the ones I’ve narrowed it down to.

Changing Bag Wishlist

Storksak Noa
I’ve loved this bag since I first started looking and it is the most reasonable out of my picks at £75. I think this is the perfect size bag for me, it’s still spacious but not as big as some of my other picks. Made from wipe clean canvas, the Noa also comes with a padded changing mat, inside insulated pocket and a mini organiser bag.

Storksak Elizabeth
A more pricey pick from Storksak is the Elizabeth. Made with real leather, the bag also contains an insulated bottle holder, 9 inner zipped pockets which will be handy for finding things quickly and a padded changing mat. Not only does the Elizabeth look beautiful but it’s also very practical.

Jem and Bea Amber
A simple yet elegant looking changing bag. This would be the best option if I didn’t want my changing bag to look like something that carries nappyies but instead it just looks like an everyday handbag. There’s also an option to personalise the leather tag which I think is really cute. As with the previous two, this bag contains a padded changing bag, insulated pocket aswell as a detachable crossbody strap.

Tiba + Marl Kaspar Knapsack
I am still deciding whether it might be easier to have a rucksack rather than one I can clip on the pram. I’ll be taking the pram and the dog out a lot together and I don’t know if the bag will just get in the way. The Tiba + Marl bags are so pretty too, this gold snake skin effect is my favourite. The bag comes with a deluxe changing bag, a mini purse bag and even an internal laptop pocket!

Pacapod Firenze
I’m not going to lie I love everything about this bag. The fact it comes with little pods inside (hence the name) to separate everything and keep the food away from the dirty nappies is what sells it for me! I also love the colour as my pram is also grey and it looks just like an everyday handbag. I just need to get saving those pennies for this luxury piece! The bag also includes a changing mat and a drawstring bag for smelly clothes!

Jem and Bea Black Jemima
This bag looks so similar to my current Kate Spade bag that I use every day! Again, made from real leather this is a stunning changing bag and maybe too nice to put dirty nappies in! I love the fine detail and the black contrasting strap. It features 8 interior pockets, a water repellent lining and padded changing mat.

Storksak Bailey
A bigger size changing bag that is probably better for a weekend away bag rather than an everyday changing bag. However I love the style of it with the contrasting colours. This can be easily wiped clean and comes with a FAB bag which you store food and drink in.

Which changing bag shall I go for?!
