LuluJo Muslin Dream

I am so new to the world of Mummy blogging! Since Eli was born, I have been contacted by a few wonderful companies and offered a few beautiful baby items to review and I am loving doing something different occasionally! I hope ya'll don't mind that I will be mixing up plus size fashion with Mum/Baby posts from now on? 

ANYWAY, onto my review, I was so kindly sent a BEAUTIFUL extra large grey peony patterned Muslin swaddle from LuluJo via Potwells and it is STUNNING.

 
 
 
 

I'd never really given very large muslins much thought before if I'm completely honest. Eli has a collection of small muslins for the usual dribble/sick wipe up jobs but this will DEFINITELY not be used for that! It is absolutely stunning. The cotton is super beautiful quality and obscenely soft, as well as ultra breathable and comfortable against Eli's little baby skin! The box states that this muslin gets softer with every wash so I can only imagine how glorious it will be in a few months time haha! You really can't tell instantly that this is a long lasting item and won't be one of those fine cotton products that disintegrates after a short while, it is absolutely a long lasting muslin and because of the size, will be just as wonderful to wrap Eli up in when he's double his current size! 

Since its arrival in the UK, Lulujo's collection of lovely everyday essentials including luxury bamboo muslins, as modelled here by Eli (this is the grey peony muslin), have proven to be a huge success with parents. They are versatile, breathable and babies will love the silky soft texture. Not to mention the impressive range of uses including: swaddling, nursing cover, baby blanket, portable crib sheet, change pad and many more! This really is the softest, most beautiful muslin I have encountered since having Eli and he absolutely adores it too!


Lots Of Love,

Rose Glow

GOD BLESS BLACK FRIDAY! I've never previously partaken in the Black Friday sales, but this year, the ASOS website was just too good to resist!

 
 

Top - ASOS Curve, Skirt - George At ASDA, Tights - Evans, Shoes - Converse.

I have been lusting after this glorious top four r so long but I didn't feel I could justify getting it as it really isn't a colour I would normally choose. However, as soon as I saw the ASOS Black Friday sale, I felt like this would be the perfect time to invest and I am NOT disappointed. Granted, since having Eli, I have dropped one if not two dress sizes but for some reason I can't get that into my head, so I ordered this top in a 26 and it's DEFINITELY too big. But, other than my inability to accept my new size, this top is FLAWLESS. The velvet is heavy and great quality, the cut is unusual and interesting and I love the fact it has long sleeves. This top has shown me that I need to start trying new things fashion wise as this is not a colour I would normally choose but I'm so glad I did, as I love it!

 

This isn't the greatest photo to showcase it, but this Plisse skirt from ASDA is fantastic. It's black and ever so slightly shimmery, super stretchy and comfy and a great length. Plisse is such a huge trend at the moment and I had been waiting to find the right piece & this is definitely it - it's so versatile and I know I'm going to wear it until it falls apart! I particularly love it as part of this outfit because the contrasting textures are so perfect! 

Lots Of Love,
