See Inside My Gorgeous Baby Shower!

I’m 8 months pregnant – I seriously can’t believe it! We’re nearly in the home stretch, before Baby Hunkin makes her appearance in January 2018. She is getting bigger and bigger each day, and she keeps mummy up all night sometimes with her kicks. I keep joking that she’s going to come out already a soccer player (like her dad), or a dancer at the very least. But I love (almost) every minute of it, and I’m soaking up these last few weeks of having her so close to me.

This past weekend was my baby shower, thrown by my dear friends Anita and Kirsty. It was held at Hills Penthouse West Hollywood, which is a gorgeous space that overlooks all of LA – the view is just stunning, and you can see all the way from downtown to the westside on a clear day (did you catch the sunset I filmed on my Instagram Stories?). The theme was a very English tea party, with cheese and pickle finger sandwiches, home-baked scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam, sausage rolls, the most stunning cheeseboards from Lady & Larder, and Sprinkles cupcakes for dessert.

It couldn’t be a proper high tea without the tea itself of course – Anita found beautiful vintage floral tea cups and saucers at Sweet Tea Party Rentals. Each set was totally unique, and all the plates mismatched – which is one of my favorite looks for a tea party. The flowers were arranged by my blogger babe Sivan (thanks so much for your help!) – which included chic clusters of eucalyptus, baby’s breath, white roses, and hydrangeas all set about the room. I loved that the space was feminine without being overly pink – exactly my style.

For my non-pregnant friends, the bartender served grapefruit cocktails and champagne (thanks to Perrier Jouet for the bubbles!), in the cutest glassware and garnished with lavender sprigs. My guests and I were pampered with hand scrubs and massages by Elemis, who also provided goodie bags with some seriously dee-lish face and body oils inside. My favorite was the Frangipani Monoi Body Oil, which literally smells of Hawaii.

There were photos of me as a toddler strung up, and guests could fill out cute cards addressed to Baby Hunkin, guessing her name, birthday, weight, and even her personality (of course everyone said she would have her daddy’s sense of humor!). Thank you so much to everyone who came and who donated to Baby2Baby. It was truly such a special day, and I’m so grateful to everyone that was a part of it!

  • I remember the first time I met Ralph Lauren. I was working at Vogue.com in London, and was flown to Moscow (yes Moscow!!) for the launch of his flagship store there. The runway show was epic: a live orchestra played, and afterwards we drank frozen vodkas shots with pickles, and ate supper at the ambassador’s home under a hundred candelabras. We danced til the sun came up. Tonight, I’m getting a sneak peek at his @skyatlanticuk documentary, #VeryRalph, which I’ve been DYING to see, and it was incredible! Catch it tomorrow on @skyatlanticuk, or on demand any time. #ad
  • #ad Friendsgiving has become a very happy tradition for me. Living in LA, all us Brits had families far away so to celebrate the holiday we would gather to cook, eat, drink, play games, and laugh for hours. I was naturally always in charge of cocktails and this year I’m making the @ketelonebotanical Botanical Spritz. So easy to make and so delicious with no sugar and no carbs- just add club soda and fresh fruit to your favourite varietal in a wine glass! Can’t wait to bring this tradition back to England this year! #PeachandOrangeBlossom #KetelBotanical #BotanicalSpritz
  • I had so much fun shopping for Honor at @ilgufo_official today- and I got to chat to the Italian heritage brand’s elegant CEO @alessandrachiavelli ... watch it all on my stories. How are Italians just always so impeccably chic!? #ad #ilgufo_official
  • Today we walked to the town square and listened to the trumpets salute our fallen soldiers, we watched the helicopters fly overhead, and we listened to the choir sing. I wish Honor could have met her brave great-grandfathers, who fought in the RAF and the army, but I shall make sure I tell her all about them, and that every year we will proudly wear our poppies. #LestWeForget #RemembranceSunday
  • Literally got my claws into him 🤣
True romance ♥️
Love you babes @mackenziehunkin
  • Writing down your dreams and goals is such a powerful way to start making them a reality - but when was the last time you took the time to do it? I have lots of plans for the year ahead (like creating our dream family home!) and @kikki.k dream journals are the perfect way to set the wheels in motion, inspired by @kristinakikkik and her book.

  • Note to self: wearing leather trousers and heels to a reclamation yard does not get you the best deals 💰 😂🔨
