Please tell me you have baby clothes too! That was the first thing I said when I sent designer Anna Koumoushi an e-mail asking about the Made in Cyprus campaign.

James is two months old today! Wow right?
Our lives have definitely changed since he arrived on the scene but we tried to keep our summer holiday just the way it has always been. For Georgie. Which means Agia Napa, hotel living, beach, fun parks, ice creams, walks, late nights and breakfast buffets. So far all those boxes have been ticked. With a newborn in tow.
I decided to take a few days off blogging and rest up with the family during the Easter holidays. Our past two Easters have been spent travelling so this year we wanted to be with our families and really ‘feel’ Easter.
We took a one-night trip to the mountains where papa’s parents have a house in one of the villages, visited friends and basked in the sun. We ate ridiculous amounts of delicious foods, consumed our weight in chocolate eggs, played tsougkrisma and of course my family’s favourite Easter egg game, an epic egg hunt.
Locally made, the range consists of jackets, jumpsuits and dresses with fabrics sourced from Onasagorou Street in Nicosia! All these gorgeous pieces make me wish I was having a girl. However the designer has indicated that there may be something for little dudes in the making. And I hope it involves a hoodie.
We don’t buy cakes often. If papa, Georgie or I crave a certain type usually I’ll just bake it over the weekend. We all have our own favourites so nothing takes too long to whip up. But then there are times (and as my pregnancy progresses they’re getting more frequent) when baking is the furthest thing from my mind. But eating isn’t.
