If I was to describe myself in 3 words, I would have to take the first line of the bio on my blog WHIITELIST, a London Mrs, Mummy and Career Woman.
I’ve been married to my love for nearly 5 years; we met whilst he was working in London having moved from Stockholm, and I was still at university. It was a Swedish British Nigerian romance, evolving from Summer jaunts around London, to long distance between Stockholm and London, to a Summer holiday in Portofino, which ended in him returning to me, proposing, and our marriage a year later in November 2011.
We have a love cemented by our fondness for travel, adventure, good food, good TV, minimalist aesthetic and our Russian Blue Aoki; so when I found out I was pregnant I knew that I would work very hard to keep that going despite our becoming parents.
We welcomed our son Chance in December 2015, our greatest gift of all and learnt that our journey had just begun.
✨My, how time has flown! The Chance in this picture was a 2 week old baby at about 4kgs in size 1 nappies who needed feeding every 2 hours 🍼 the Chance today is 10 weeks old is over 6kgs in size 3 nappies and sleeps through the night with just the 1 feed 🍼 smiles back at me, vocalises, does mini press ups and laughs! I'm 1000% in ❤️ #thatsdarling#postthepeople#momlife#nothigisordinary#humaneffect#artifactuprising#minimal#thehappynow#vscomom#vscodaily#candidchildhood#motherhood#mama#vscobaby#instabest#instagood#documentlife#childhoodunplugged#thepursuitofjoyproject#letthembelittle#makeportraits#motherhoodthroughinstagram#babiesofinstagram#momtogs#livethelittlethings#habitandhome#mummyblogger#lifestyleblogger#londonblogger
At 10 days old Chance began his travelling adventure, 8 weeks old in Denmark, then to see his great-grandparents, grandparents and family in Sweden, at 11 weeks old we were in New York City and that was just the beginning.
Chance and I regularly go on mini adventures with our CYBEX Priam closer to home in London; with walks along the Thames, discover new cafe’s and coffee shops, pick up pretty flowers, or to indulge in my favourite pastime of Interior shopping.
Sometimes we just take some time out from the busy city and stop for a moment.
Stopping for a moment, although foreign to me is very much welcome, whilst I enjoy these moments with my son.
I am usually always on the go, as Head of New Business for fashion, beauty, celebrity, and news products, managing a commercial team and ensuring that a sales strategy is implemented and executed so that we are able to achieve our objectives; life is usually incredibly varied and incredibly busy with internal meetings with the team, and external meetings with our clients PRs, media, press events and fashion weeks.
In addition to this I re-launched my blog WHIITELIST in February 2016 and have been fortunate enough to develop relationships with brilliant brands like CYBEX, and also gain nominations for awards and ranked 7th for Top 50 Mommy Bloggers, which is an incredible achievement for a platform that was meant to be a creative outlet.
