    FLEUR DE FORCE | PLAYTIME

    July 27, 2018Celebrity, Lifestyle

    So today marks River’s 7 month ‘birthday’. Our sixth month together has been one of highs, lows and mostly… play time! Our little lady is learning new tricks by the day, just this week mastering raspberry blowing, head shaking and pushing herself up onto all fours. The latter means that crawling definitely isn’t far off, which slightly terrifies me – I definitely need to get baby-proofing the house ASAP! The raspberry blowing also seemed cute …

    RIVER TURNS SIX MONTHS

    So little River is six months old! The main thing I’ve noticed this month is that people have stopped looking at me with that sympathetic face and asking if she’s sleeping through the night, maybe touching my hand and saying ‘how are you?’ (because maybe my eye bags are giving me away?! Or probably because I’m not wearing makeup that day as I haven’t …

    Fleur De Force | Motherhood’s 5 Month Milestones

    May 30, 2018Celebrity, Lifestyle, Mum Life

    So we’ve officially hit the 5 month milestone… how on earth did that happen?! The older I get, the faster time seems to go, but I’ve never felt quite as robbed of time as I have over the past five months – When you have children, the time just slips away in what seems like seconds! Little River is getting sturdier, more inquisitive and chubbier by the day! She’s really started to reach for things …

    Royal Wedding Predictions by Jerramy Fine

    May 15, 2018Celebrity, Fashion, Lifestyle, Uncategorised

    Written by Expert Jerramy Fine

    I’m a firm believer in classic rather than trendy and the little royals have stayed true this. Wool peacoats, smocking, Peter Pan collars, mary janes, dresses with cardigans, shorts with knee-socks….. I love it all. Personally, I wish more adults dressed this way.  (Well, maybe not the knee socks).

    Although royal children often look like they have time -travelled from some bygone era and landed in our modern world, I don’t …

    Fleur De Force | Getting into the Swing of Things: 3 Months In

    April 20, 2018Celebrity, Lifestyle, Mum Life, Uncategorised

    Words and images by Fleur De Force

    So as I sit down to write my third post for the My 1st Years blog, I’m genuinely thinking where on earth has the time gone? Little River is rapidly approaching the 4 month milestone and I have to say, while life with a baby has become a lot more ‘normal’ as we get used to being a family rather than just a couple, I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s …

    Famous Kids Who Love My 1st Years #2

    March 16, 2018Celebrity, Uncategorised

    Next month will mark two years since HRH Prince George was snapped wearing our best-selling gingham robe during a meeting with President Obama and even all this time later, we still pinch ourselves at the memory! Seeing the future king in one of our pieces was an incredible moment and it makes us proud that our robe was part of such a special occasion.

    Since this magical moment, we’ve been lucky enough to …

    Fleur De Force: Sleepless Nights & Nappy Explosions

    March 2, 2018Celebrity, Lifestyle

    So here we are, 2 months into being a parent… and I definitely feel like I’m starting to get into the swing of it! Minus a few sleepless nights, nappy explosions and tricky train journeys… the past few weeks especially have been notably uphill. The fuzzy fog of newborn-ness has faded, River has gotten into a nice little routine and we are starting to get to know each other properly. The smiles are coming in …

    February 14, 2018Celebrity, Meet The Expert, Mum Life, Uncategorised

    Words and images by Fleur De Force

    Hello there! It feels strange to be introducing myself, but as I don’t normally blog on sites other than my own, I think it needs to be done. I’m Fleur. I run a beauty and fashion YouTube channel and blog called Fleur De Force and recently (six weeks ago to be exact!) I became a Mum for the first time to a beautiful little girl named River …
