Review | Black Heart Creatives Live Fast Die Yum Collection




Black Heart Creatives are an independent jewellery brand set up by Charlotte. The jewellery is made from Perspex and crafted in Black Heart Creative's own workshop I was given the opportunity to review the Good Burger necklace from the Live Fast Die Yum Collection. The collection is made up of number of statement necklace pieces based around popular fast foods. It's a really fun & quirky idea which is probably why it is proving to be so popular.




The necklace came in a beautiful gift box which I thought was lovely. I love that little touch, it adds to the uniqueness and hand-crafted feel of the product.





The burger is a large size but it's not heavy at all. The chain length is perfect which I sometimes have problems with, so it was great that it fit well. It's comfortable to wear and it doesn't rub against the skin. Charlotte has a great reputation for offering bespoke pieces, so if you need something with a longer (or shorter) chain she'll do her best to help! At £20 it's also a great price for something so unusual, when I wear it I can be confident no one else will have it on.



The new Live Fast Die Yum collection is bright, vibrant and fun. The Collection brings together two of my favourite things - food and jewellery!! To see the whole collection head over to the website.


They also make custom pieces my favourite being their famous name necklace, where she will print any wording and make it into a necklace! Charlotte is quite open about liking a challenge, so she'll do whatever she can to make anything you want into a Perspex necklace


Black Heart Creatives have been lovely enough to give my readers 25% off any item using the code Bump25. It’s only valid for a week so what are you waiting??


Have you heard of Black Heart Creatives before? Are you a fan of statement necklaces?


What Darcy Does | Happy 3 Months Darcy!



Miss Darcy. April already, it's been three months since you arrived so fashionably late and brightened up my world. 3 months in a blink of an eye, I find myself disbelieving time has flown so quickly. At some point I’ll stop saying that, I’m sure you are bored of hearing mummy say that! It has been so much fun to see you grow healthily, hit various milestones and become more and more observant & curious about the world around you.

Review | Yours Clothing Goddess Keira Nursing Bra


I was recently contacted by Yours Clothing about their new Goddess Keira nursing bra. They kindly sent me it to review and I am really glad they did!


Being plus size I found it really hard to find a decent nursing bra, when I finally found some in my size they were thin and flimsy and barely supported me. As a new mum this wasn't ideal at all - my body had already gone through lots of major changes and the one thing I wanted to keep was good boobs ;) Sadly there didn't seem to be much choice around, so I had to wear it!



When the Keira bra arrived I was excited to feel how firm the material was, even before I put it on. When I took it out of the packaging I knew immediately it was going to be more supportive than other bras I had used in the past!


Keira is a pretty good fit, I am a size 42E and the fit is true to size.The coverage is full. I love the wide straps and wide underband.The nursing clasp is easy to open and close, which is a must in a nursing bra and it looks great under clothes.



Even though the bra is wireless it is surprisingly supportive and is perfect for wearing during the day and sleeping at night. I found it very easy to breastfeed whilst wearing the bra. My breasts felt comfortable the whole time I was wearing it - which as breastfeeding mothers will tell you is a must!

I am really happy that there is finally a bra out there that is suitable for plus size, nursing mums!


Keira is available in sizes 38 - 48 DD/G and retails at £34

April Wishlist | Darcy Edit

Darcy Wish List






Isn't the the weather crazy at the moment?! One moment it's sunny, the next it’s typical April weather..


Darcy has outgrown a large amount of her 0 - 3 months clothes, so it’s time to update her wardrobe. She already has more clothes than mummy and Daddy put together but I just love buying her clothes.


I adore the print on this Zara kids bomber jacket, it just screams springtime. I can see Darcy in this Next dress with a cute black headband and a pair of dolly shoes. I’ve been talking to Terry about taking Darcy swimming, so this swimming costume from Jojo Maman Bebe would be perfect.


I swooned when I saw these beautiful gold sandals from Mama's and Papa's, they are just too cute for words. I’m a sucker for polka dot so these skinny jeans from Monsoon leaped out at me. I know this Stella McCartney jumper is a bit on the expensive side but it's so stylish. I can picture Darcy wearing it with a pair of jeggings.


Darcy is getting to the stage where she needs entertaining all the time. This Lamaze Paddy the Panda toy is perfect for keeping her busy,

So that is my April wish list for Darcy, what are you currently lusting over for your little ones?
