Happy 4th Birthday Beautiful Girl!

Written by InnocentCharmsChats. Posted in 2015

If you have followed my blog for a while you will know that every year I take a picture of Addison at the exact time she was born, I email these to her (as I do many times a year) she does not know the email account exists it is for our future, for me to tell her the big and little things, the things I will forget, the things that we will share when she is older.

Dear Addison

I can not believe you are 4! How has this happened, in some ways it only feels like yesterday you were having skin to skin to keep you warm as you had an infection, I remember like only yesterday trying to break your dummy habit, or how you would say Croc-o-dile.

Now you seem so grown, saying such big words, phrases such as “I’m Exhausted”, asking to help make dinner in the evenings, being able to get dressed/un-dressed ready for big school come September.

You are so ready for school even though just 4, Mummy on the other hand not so much, I shall be in tears come that first day.

We had a wonderful day for your birthday, like the year before just Daddy, you and I, a day of treats and wishes coming true. Bowling, Build a Bear and buying so many naughty foods for you to eat.

We giggled, cuddled, played in the park and then took pictures in the Bluebells, as per your wish, oh how I love you.

The Kiddies // Twenty

Written by InnocentCharmsChats. Posted in 2015

We had a truly lovely weekend after a dreadful week, the kids have all been unwell and I personally had a dreadful week so we headed to beach combing on Sunday and it was just perfect.

Grayson - Look at you Superhero, enjoying new experiences and textures down on the beach, you were not all to sure but you managed 20 minutes of exploring and I am so proud of you. You are really trying hard with improving all your physical skills even though so so weak.

Addison - How can this really be your last weekend as a 3-year-old ? It has gone far to quickly. I loved seeing you experience beach combing, so interested in all around you, your love for life is rubbing off on me and making me so excited.

Deacon at the beach

Deacon - This past week I have wanted to keep you as my baby so much more, it is hard dealing with this stage, part way between baby and child, but you are changing so quickly and I am now not ready for that, slow down my little one. You were so unsure of the beach but after holding onto Mummy for a bit you saw the fun.

What I Am Rocking #6 – Bra’s Galore

Written by InnocentCharmsChats. Posted in fashion, Plus Size Fashion, review

Being big busted and plus sized can be a real problem when I am looking for Bras. For some unknown reason even if you are big cup sized you will not also have a big back, not sure why but high street shops offer little to no choice and if they do they are seriously unfashionable and certainly not sexy.

Bra’s Galore though are not like that and when I typed in my size 44G/GG I was met with 4 pages and over 60 choices in Bra’s and swimwear, I was blown away and struggled to choose as I had never been given so much choice.

I decided to let the Hubby pick (he was over the moon) and he was practical and chose something he knew I would love, the Elomi Betty Plunge in Pale Pink.

Beautiful isn’t it ? It has the prettiest Polkadot detail and 50’s styling which I love.

The Bra fits so well, it is comfy, the back does not ride and sits perfectly straight, no nasty strap marks by the end of the day and the fabric although sheer is not scratchy against the skin, in fact you could be wearing silk it is that smooth.

Even whilst playing with the children on the beach I felt safe, secure and had no movement.

I now have a little wish list at Bra’s Galore, I totally recommend taking a look no mater your size as they go from 28 to 48 back, cup sizes C to K.

Siblings {May 2015}

Written by InnocentCharmsChats. Posted in 2015

Taking pictures of my babies is one of my favourite things to do.

I don’t set up little photo shoots as they are not very patient with me but on my phone catching memories happens a lot.

But getting a nice picture of all 3 of them together is still impossible. 2 of them fine but all 3 a challenge, I am still waiting to succeed but that isn’t what Siblings from Dear Beautiful is all about. It is about capturing moments in time between them and I have those.

Poor Grayson needed to cuddle animals to feel better :)

It would seem our Sofa is the one place they like to be together. They interact, they watch Mickey, they snack, it is a place they all feel safe and willing to be in each other’s company.


Before bed cheeky as always


So maybe one day I will get that elusive picture on the sofa.

This is the best I did this month.
