Maternity desert shoot




While we were in Dubai we got together with Lianne from Dinky Heart Photography.  It’s always been a dream of mine to do a shoot in the desert, but wow what a location for a maternity shoot!  There were so many stunning photos I had a hard time narrowing down the photos, and you’ll see why!  I felt very blessed being able to capture this special time in our lives at such an amazing location.  We are now in the third trimester and it’s really starting to sink in that we will be parents very soon.  We are nearly at the finish line and so excited to meet our little man.  The last few weeks have been all about nesting and getting everything set up for him.  I have found myself feeling very emotional and starting to imagine our lives with him.

Dar Sofil ~ Marrakech



We ended our trip in luxury and stayed at the Dar Sofil resort, which is located outside the Medina and a stone’s throw away from Marrakech itself. As soon as we arrived we felt like we had escaped to our own little paradise. This is a beautiful hotel with old olive trees and magnificent gardens with breathtaking views of the Altas mountains. As soon as we entered it's grand gates we were in complete awe of this place!

La Mamounia - Marrakech



We finished our trip to Morocco by being treated as royals for the day! You can’t visit Marrakech and not experience a Hammam or a spa! It’s basically compulsory! This mumma to be was ready for some pampering! I had booked us in for a spa day at La Mamounia Hotel which has one of the world’s most iconic spas.

J&J’s Baby Shower



Before leaving London I really wanted to have a mini baby shower with all our nearest and dearest. Honestly we are so lucky to have and made so many great friends here. We hosted our baby shower at a French style brasserie located in the Wallace Collection museum in the centre of London’s fancy Marylebone area. It was the most gorgeous backdrop with it pink interior covered courtyard in the middle of the museum complete with sculptures, trees and natural light flooding in through the glass ceiling. The great part about hosting our baby shower here was that it also allowed for our guests to explore the museum before or after the baby shower celebrations, it is free to visit and is a real treasure trove of furniture, porcelain and paintings.

Desert Glamping in Morocco




I am constantly looking for unique travel experiences. While researching things that I wanted to do in Morocco I came across Scarabeo Camp which offer’s glamping in the middle of the Moroccan desert! There was no hesitation when it came to booking this! We had spent the first part of our trip in the busy and hustling Marrakech. However after being collected by our private transfer an hour out from Marrakech we found ourselves in our own private little oasis. Spending the night glamping, was one of the most luxurious experiences I have ever had while travelling.
