Aoife has started getting into fancy dress…

Hi everyone,

 

Hope you are well and enjoying the few bursts of lovely weather!

 

Last week I went for lunch with Anna and Pollyanna, who were also on Splash. We’ve become good friends which is really nice, we’ll definitely meet up again. The restaurant was American-style, and the cocktails were amazing. I love going for food – it’s nice to chat over dinner and properly catch up.

 

I love Fashion Week, but I didn’t get a chance to go to any shows this season as we were working. I always love Julien Macdonald’s shows, they’re always amazing – we went last year and it was so much fun. I love his clothes, and wear a lot of his stuff. He does beautiful dresses.

Burberry is another label I love – I think their clothes are a great staple to have in your wardrobe. Their coats are so beautiful and timeless, you just can’t go wrong with a good Burberry coat. I have a duffel-type one from there which is so cosy, and I also have a slightly more fitted coat when I want to be a bit more dressed up.

 

For shoes, I love that French, edgy kind of look. Saint Laurent does amazing boots, I actually just bought a pair from there the other day. Isabel Marant is really cool as well, the shoes are amazing.

 

When I buy clothes for Aoife, I usually go to Monsoon. I’ve been buying her clothes there since she was born – Monsoon Baby caters for all ages from 0-12, I think they’re brilliant. There’s so many colours, Aoife loves her dresses from there. I also dress her in a lot of Baby Boden, I think the clothes they do are adorable.

She’s started getting into fancy dress now – she’s at the stage where she wants to be a fairy, or a princess. She loves Disney’s Sofia the First, but she’s also got a little Minnie Mouse outfit I’ll definitely be dressing her up in! I’d love to take her to Disneyland, I think she’d love it – her first birthday was Disney themed.

 

Speak soon,

Aoife and her friend Koa are adorable together…

Hi everyone,

 
Hope you’re having a good week despite the horrible weather!

 

Ben and I met up with Kian and Jodi last weekend for a Sunday roast. Aoife and their son Koa are adorable together, they play together and are really good friends. They’re the cutest little things! Aoife is still very young so she hasn’t made many friends, but Koa is 3 months older and they get on so well. He told Jodi that he really likes Aoife and thinks she’s really pretty – it was so cute. When Aoife sees photos of him, she recognises him and points him out as her friend. It’s so sweet.

Her birthday is coming up in March, so I just bought her dress. I haven’t made any big plans as she’s still quite young, so I might make it a small party. I think next year she’ll be old enough to appreciate all the excitement, cake and presents a bit more.

 

I do want to try and get her picture on one of the children’s TV shows where they say happy birthday to kids. The picture pops up and they wish you a happy birthday and say your age, which is very exciting for both the child but also the parents I think. When I was 7, my Mum sent one in, and it was shown… but I missed it! The next day everyone was talking about it at school, and I was so disappointed that I hadn’t seen it.

 

She’s almost 2 now, and she understands a lot of what we say and what’s going on. It’s lovely, because she’s just so happy-go-lucky. I wouldn’t be able to be apart from her, I see her almost every day.

 

I think for her birthday I’ll be getting her some clothes and toys, but I’d love to get her a sing-a-long CD player for children as a birthday gift, so if you know any great ones, I’m open to suggestions!

 

Speak soon,

 

Love from Una xxx

Frankie’s taken to motherhood like a duck to water

Hi everyone

All five of us Saturdays met up on Wednesday morning for a band meeting. We do it every few weeks do go through our diaries together. We’ve been putting together plans for next year. It will be so nice to have all five of us back together again. We’re putting some great plans in place for our tour and future singles for next year.

Frankie brought baby Parker along which was such a treat. I arrived there first so scooped him up and gave him a bottle. He’s just so cute, he really is. He’s a contented little baby – babies remind me of that track ‘Eat, sleep, rave, repeat’ except it’s ‘Eat, sleep, poo, repeat’ for them. Frankie has taken to motherhood like a duck to water. She’s looking really well and is very happy.

Frankie is very confident in being a mum. She hasn’t really asked Rochelle or I for advice but she knows we’d be there if we needed her. The truth is that I feel a little bit out of touch with small babies now. As children grow you can easily forget what it’s like when they’re really young being bottle-fed or breast-fed.

I flew off to Ireland on Monday to promote my TV show Una’s Dream Ticket but I’m around for the rest of this week for family time.

I’m doing a live Twitter Q&A for HELLO! readers on Thursday 21 November at 4:30pm. Tweet @hellomag your questions using the hashtag #HELLOUna and I’ll do my best to answer as many as possible.

Speak soon

With love, Una xxxx
