Mum Crush Monday 002

So it’s the first Monday of the month which can only mean one thing around these parts; the second instalment of Mum Crush Monday.

So whats the deal? Basically I tell you who I’ve been fan-girling over and then add them my Mum Crush Directory for my blog stalking  *ahem* BROWSING pleasure. So, off we go…

Alexie – Always Alexie

Now I am just a little bit obsessed with  Alexie; she’s gorgeous, she’s the owner of the most swoon worthy Instagram (she has a crazy number of followers so I’m clearly not the only one who thinks so!) and her blog is the perfect mixture of positivity – the joys, triumphs and overwhelming love that comes with motherhood and the tantrums, worries and sleep-deprived REALNESS that we can all relate to. Her gorgeous little boy is just a little older than Henry and she’s recently announced her second pregnancy and I’m looking forward to following her journey. Always Alexie is an incredible read for any mama.

Kimberly – Odd Hogg

I’ve recently gotten to know the very lovely Kimberly a little better on Instagram where she shares (mainly) beautiful black and white photos of her insanely adorable little boy. Her blog is filled with handy hints for mamas – bloggers and non-bloggers alike. Her recent post on how she increased her Pinterest has become my Pinterest bible and I’m currently working through the steps to hopefully emulate her success. She also shares meal plans, recipes and – excitingly for me as wannabe professional competition enterer – a monthly round-up of competitions and giveaways. The March round-up went live last week so hop over and get entering!

Natalie – Hello Cuppies

Hello Cuppies is a parenting blog which is a spin off from her bespoke cake company called Cuppies ‘n’ Cream and so naturally, amongst the insights into parenting are an array of mouth watering recipes including my favourite red velvet cupcakes, the ultimate brownie recipe and french macarons. Natalie also shares baking tips and tricks right from the mouth, or keyboard(!) of an expert. I’ve been itching to get stuck into some of her recipes since I discovered her beautiful blog a few weeks ago. First on my list are these healthy home-made granola bars which I’ve just purchased the ingredients for.

So before I go and get my bake on, last but not least is a mademoiselle who I’m sure doesn’t need an introduction….

CécileFrenchie Mummy

I just love Cécile! I love, love, love the whole concept of her blog and the french…oh my days I was hooked after the first read of the first sentence of the first post I read. She’s incredibly supportive and was one of the first bloggers who reached out to me when I first started, despite being pretty new to the game herself. She’s been running some great giveaways recently as part of her ‘Baby Fashionista‘ series which I’ve discovered some pretty swoon worthy brands through. Her posts are hilarious and as her little boy is the same age as Henry I find her blog so relatable. Now if only I was half as fabulous…

Don’t forget to comeback next month for the third Mum Crush Monday. You can find all of these mamas and the lovely ladies featured last month in the Mum Crush Directory.

    What a neat idea for a series – I love it. I have a few “mum crushes” myself. Of course over here in the U.S. I would call them “mom crushes” — there really are some cool mommy bloggers out there, right? I will have to go check out the ones you are crushing on lately. #marvmondays
