Side Street Style

A family lifestyle, interiors & travel blog


Baby, books and blogs :)

Sooooo I know I have been super quiet of late, but with good reason, I have just given birth to my first child, Arthur, on the 21st of Sept. I didn't really mention the pregnancy on the blog because I wanted to keep one thing baby-free, and I wanted to keep my blog about fashion, photography etc.....luckily though I exercised and kept healthy during the pregnancy and 10 days after giving birth I was back in my levi skinny jeans - yeay :). So here is the little mini-me

Besides that news I have also made the shortlist of Wales Blog Awards - yey :)
The awards is happening tonight at Chapter Arts in Canton, Cardiff....hmmm what to wear? Can't wait to meet other bloggers and have a much needed glass of wine (after 9 months of none!)
So other things that are taking my fancy at the moment, one is looking forward to buying a new winter wardrobe yeah!! Another is expanding my little book collection. My partner just ordered an amazing book called Take Ivy, which is a sixties documentary style book of Ivy league fashion and lifestyle taken by Japanese photographer T.Hayashida. If your into preppy style and want to see where is came from this is a great book for you.

My book of choice for this week though is an art book called Hg2| A Hedonist’s guide to Art, which officially comes out today (14th). It's a seminal collection of essays from international artists, writers, gallery owners and art collectors who reveal their hidden lives, the lives of others and slightly appealing secrets of people in the industry.It's published in association with Artica which has a great art blog full of inspiration, check it out here. They are having their launch night in London today....wish I could of been there, but I am sure it's going to be a great creative filled night.

Anyway I have loads of fashion, style, photography posts coming....and lots of exciting news. Three words - Urban Outfitters Cardiff!

    Here i wanna share my experience about Tubal Reversal..
    For many women who do not want further children, tubal ligation is the preferred procedure. Thankfully with tubal reversal, the women can now counter the process and still have children again.

  9. Awesome pictures and interesting information and attractive.Yes,the blog is very interesting and I really like.
    Here I would also like to share some information on Tubal Ligation Reversal.
