#FanDayFriday The Premier League is back!

A few days late again, but another very busy few days, means that my #FanDayFriday post is once again coming to you on Sunday. This week, as a football fan, there really could be only one topic, and that would have to be the opening weekend of the Premiership. Football is back!


I have been a footie fan since I was a little girl, my family are all die hard West Bromwich Albion fans, and frankly it was an unspoken rule the you has to be football mad. I’ve since loved my team through good and bad, including the terrible days of Bobby Gould when we were relegated to the old third division. Now we are a fully fledged Premier League club, and I have my own little Baggie fan, with Joe just as committed to West Brom as the rest of the family. He is also a Junior Baggie star, being chosen to take part in a special Christmas message video that West Bromwich Albion created last Christmas.

Next week, Joe has been chosen to be a mascot for the first home match of the season, and will walk out with the team when they play Everton. I couldn’t be prouder – he has been chosen for his dedication, commitment and hard work whilst attending Football Camps, and it really is a great honour. He is super excited, and next week promises to be a really special occasion for the whole family.

My heart lies with WBA, but I also follow the Gunners and look for their results. My grandad was billeted at Woolwich Arsenal during World War 2, so always had a special place in his heart for Arsenal. Of course, the fact that I am totally besotted and not a little obsessed with Olivier Giroud is another reason to watch. Football is all about the passion, the atmosphere, the joy of singing and shouting for your team at the top of your voice, but that doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate the hot men playing the game!



Next Saturday I’ll be the proudest mom around, watching my boy walking onto the pitch and enjoying his moment, and will then shout myself hoarse hoping Rondon adds to his goal tally.

The Premier League, there really is nothing like it.

This week I am linking up with Lee-Anne from wotshernameagain  You can check out her #FanDayFriday post here.

Circle the date Friday 29th October on your fashion calendar, for this is the day that the ‘White Stuff’ hits Birmingham. Now, before you start to think about putting salt on your paths, or get ideas I’m thinking about some dodgy drink  milk campaign from the 1970’s, let me make things a little bit clearer. I am talking of course about ‘White Stuff’ the ultra cool and stylish fashion and lifestyle store that is set to open on Cannon Street next friday. Cannon Street, already a chic style mecca and currently home to Hobbs, Jigsaw and MAC will now have a new ‘must visit’ store, and Fashion Mommy is getting very excited about this.

White Stuff has a fabulous clothing range for men and women, and is known for style and quality. It has a fabulous range of accessories, with some of the most amazing scarves that you can buy on the High Street. I am currently totally coveting the ‘Toasty’ scarf and the gorgeous ‘Diane’ gloves that would both look amazing with my winter jacket.

The opening day, Friday 29th October, promises to be a day of fun and fashion. There will be party bags full of goodies, special offers and even a baking competition where the lucky winner could receive a £100 White Stuff wardrobe. If you are in Victoria Square, look out for the Special White Stuff routemaster bus, as the staff onboard will be handing out special offers.

The White Stuff will be a great addition to the thriving fashion city of Birmingham. The quirky, award-winning window displays will be fun to watch out for, and their will be events and special offers going on throughout the year. In addition, White Stuff will be supporting Birmingham PHAB camps which support the integration of Physically handicapped and able-bodied youngsters.

So, put the date in your diary, Friday 29th October, and Fashion-Mommy will see you there.
