A New Season & Chapter
Before being a mum, I relished everything that the City had to offer without any responsibilities. I would schlep all over London to visit new restaurants, I’d go to some amazing clubs and bars and I’d spend hours pouring over clothes in the West End. There was always something going on with a reason to dress up for. Whether it was a big event, a dinner date or even just a catch up with friends over coffee, we’d always dress accordingly. But life is so far from that now. Not just for me but for many others too – with or without children and I’m really enjoying it!
Now that I’m a mum to two gorgeous little girls, I’m closing a chapter and beginning a new one. Baby Francesca is only 5 weeks old but I can already feel my style changing too. Well, adapting anyway.
The clothes I wear are transitioning to become more practical. I need to consider ease of breastfeeding and choose footwear that will take me just up to the park and back. Right now there’s light at the end of the tunnel too. Spring is almost here and with the vaccine comes – hopefully – a change in lockdown rules and rate of Covid cases.
So with all this change, I’ve been thinking about how my blog will continue. What can I share with you guys and more so, what are you going to be interested in? After a quick poll and Q&A over on my Instagram, I discovered that you want SassyintheCity.com to remain all things style and beauty (in the City of course) and so I’ve decided to reintroduce an old favourite…

If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know that back when I was pregnant with my first daughter, I launched a second blog aptly named LittleintheCity.com. I launched it alongside this blog a few months after I left GQ. It was intended as a place to share my love of baby clothes and real mum life. However, once my daughter was born I suffered with post natal depression and so the blog kind of took a back seat while I dealt with the struggle. Now here we are a few years later with my second baby and things could not be more different. I’m ready to get back into the driving seat again and so Little In The City is going to be relaunching!
Little In The City will be a space where I share lovely things for little people, pregnancy style tips and little luxuries for mums. At some point in the not too distant future I do plan on sharing bits about the birth of my daughters and post natal depression that will hopefully help other mums who may be going through it too. One of the things that I found most surprising was how little information there is out there. I struggled to find honest reads about planning for a second child having gone through post natal depression. So I hope to tackle some of those topics too.
Previously LittleintheCity.com enjoyed great success. I collaborated on ad campaigns with iCandy and Joules (to name a few) and was named Blog of the Month by Baby Magazine. The site also presented me with the opportunity to write for other brands on their sites (some listed below). I hope to continue the same success, sharing every moment with you all!
