A Little New Addition…


…and Maggie’s new chapter as a big sister! (We’re having a baby)! A BABY. I don’t think I’ve typed that many times before. Just give me a second…

Crikey- it’s felt equal parts exciting and overwhelming sharing this part of my life online recently. As a committed and dedicated secret keeper it’s not been too much of a challenge hiding a little (huge) something since June, but when it’s such an delicate and precious part of your life- week on week it feels like constantly hiding an enormous part of you, so I’m so excited to be writing this and following on from our little announcement last week- in true JVN form, CAN YOU BELIEVE.

Having loved sharing every chapter of my life on this corner of the internet- from sixth form, moving to Liverpool, heading to university, dropping out, interning, moving home, our engagement, marriage and this- it felt natural to share this little update with you all. I love nattering away about the every day- whether that’s here or on Instagram- sharing the new, the old and the mundane, and I’ve been bowled over by the generous and kind words about our news, so thank you. It’s been a really magical time- and no matter how strange (and often challenging) it’s felt being over this particular year and lockdown, I’ve felt endlessly grateful for the support and community- which has never gone unnoticed. We are so ridiculously giddy with excitement that even articulating it feels a little difficult, so I’ll try and avoid too much soppiness (because heck, once I get going…)

Anyway- I’m not quite sure on what I intend on sharing yet, and it’s definitely something I’m still navigating and not holding myself too much to- because I’m sure my mind will change a hundred times- so like anything I’ve ever written about here, I’ll play it by ear and follow my heart (omg, I literally just typed that. I am so sorry). I’ve found such solace and comfort in reading the trimester diaries of other wonderful women (Katy and Corrie have been constant referrals), but at the moment I’m quite happy plodding along (often literally), spectating and quietly navigating it as I go. After all, the only expert I’m about to become in pregnancy, is the expert of my own (which even so sounds a little obnoxious, so we’ll see)! I’m sure I’ll be bursting to talk about certain aspects, and I’ve loved chatting to so many others of you on the same journey (or similar experiences), but am also mindful of how overwhelming and difficult this arena can be for lots of people, so I’m very much taking each step as it comes- so I hope that’s ok.

However, as much as I say that; when it comes to navigating style, identity and dressing that’s something I have had lots of lovely extended conversations about- so I’m hoping to maybe share some of my favourite little discoveries, brands and the things I’ve found comfort in when keeping to me in the day to day. I’ll talk more about this soon (mainly jeans- because THE DENIM CONVERSATIONS ARE FLOWING) but I just wanted to write a little more, and share a small peep into the last five or so months. Obviously if anyone ever wants a little natter or has any questions, I’m so happy to chat- and I’m so excited to tell you more soon.

Have a gorgeous weekend pals, I’ll be back next week with a little about our seaside escape to Cornwall…

    Congratulations 🥳 I did a little shriek when I saw your lovely news! I had a baby during lockdown and realised that despite the circumstances there are actually a lot of advantages to bringing a new life into a slower paced world. Wishing you the best of luck xxx
