👋🏼 Goodbye England! What a wonderful trip we've had catching up with family and friends (although we still didn't get to see so many). During this time #BabyBastien said "mama", got up on his feet whilst holding on to the sofa & finally clapped (once 🙃). He has been an incredible travel companion giving me further confidence to explore more places with him even when daddy has to stay back working. I don't know if I'm just lucky or most babies are easy to fly with 🤔 #traveltip 👉🏼 I took our #StokkeTrailz pram, #Stokke car seat & #MyCarrier in their amazing #prampack and it's hands down the best thing for traveling with babies 🙌🏼

For nine months (yesterday) on the outside and nine months in my belly, this little sunshine has brought indescribable joy in to my life. He has been the greatest source of motivation, his kindness and patience even at this age is imminent. Yes I'm tired and spend most days make up free at home whilst working full time running a business but he is always accompanying me giving me the inspiration to carry on with fits of giggles, snuggly cuddles and for the last two weeks utters of "mama"! 💔#HappyMothersDay to all mothers out there celebrating today! 💝 *Photo taken by my sister on my LUMIX GX80

More #Dublin photos from our trip! You can tell I'm mostly fond of architecture when I travel 🏫⛪️🏛️🏤🏢

The quaint side streets of Dublin City in the rain. We spent the day in and out of coffee shops and exploring the city's stunning green spaces. Another little trip I made with my eight month old baby who's shown a great level of patience and adaptability. Even though his sleep patterns have been disturbed he continues to confirm having a baby shouldn't stop you from living your life 🌍 #slowmotherhood

Another shot from yesterday's visit to the Trinity College in the gorgeous sun 🌳🎓
Today has been raining non-stop but ironically we've been exploring many of #Dublin's green parks ☔️ I can't help but feel complete tranquility when I'm surrounded by nature's beauty 🐛🌲🌳🌲🌳

We arrived in #Dublin early yesterday morning! Stopped by the Trinity College on our way to the hotel and it reminded me of my years at University in Oxford. I just love the architecture 😍 The sun was shining and even though it was windy we spent most of the day outdoors catching the Spring rays ☀️

Beautiful Magnolia tree captured with my #lumixgx80 whilst in London 📷 I just love how I can change the focal point of my image after I've taken it. It will accompany me on my next short trip tomorrow as it fits easily in to my handbag! Follow on my Stories for the adventure! ✈️ Happy Spring Equinox 🌸🌸🌸

At first glance you might just miss it! But I'm currently traveling with this nifty little indoor security camera from @nest you see on my #desk here (next to the laptop☝🏼). Apart from being slick & stylish it has amazing picture quality. I'm mainly using it in the baby's room but you can have it any where in the house. You get notifications on your phone when activity is detected & even allows you to talk back through the app 📢👀

Gorgeous tulips to brighten up this rainy day! 🌷

London facades & quirky cars 🏠🚙👀

Munching on those mangos like a pro! 😘

Oh how I've missed you London! After checking in to our hotel we took a long stroll around the Design District, where I use to live, with coffee in hand and baby in carrier 🐥 Not popular by tourist but a firm favourite of mine, Clerkenwell gave me everything I needed after a long journey! Tranquility in its side streets, creative buzz and delicious street food!

Louie_Bastien (@louie_bastien)

On our way to London now and all I can think about is a refreshing glass of citrus water! I did not anticipate the weather would be this Spring like and I don't fancy the sugary drinks they offer on the train 🚂
Still, not long left before I'm reunited with my sister and my dear friends from Japan! Excited 👩👦👩🏻💼👫💂🏻

I just can't wait to get in to bed! Yes it's only 6pm UK time but after an exhausting day in town shopping & sightseeing all this mama can think about is her cozy robe, a warm drink & slide under her duvet 💤 #saturdaynight

Louie_Bastien (@louie_bastien)

I'm so happy to be back in England! We're spending the day in the picturesque town of #Harrogate close to my parents house. Revisiting some old favourite spots including the traditional tea rooms of @bettys1919
The weather is perfectly Spring like and I just don't want it to end!

Happy #InternationalWomensDay 💛
I have come to respect women even more since giving birth and believe beautiful things happen when we collaborate than compete. Let's respect, lift and encourage one another! 👭👭👭👭
