11 Feb

The sweetest personalised baskets were gifted to the girls over Christmas by my SIL. I had already discovered Edit.58 and was actually coveting the exact same baskets. Great minds think alike it seems. Luckily my SIL realised the same and gave me a heads up to make sure we didn't double-up! Although it wouldn't actually have been a problem. Not only do these 'mini-edits' make the most adorable beach bags, they are also perfect little storage for toys and books.

Edit.58 is the perfect destination for those looking for something a little differen ... Read More

20 Jan

It was only a dusting, but this weekend saw our first snow of the season. For little E it was in fact the first snow ever. So sweet to see her cute face when we woke up to a  blanket of white. This excitement was spurred on by her big sister who exclaimed that we must put all the decorations back up, 'it's Christmas again!' Up until last weekend we were barely wearing coats. Finally we can get out the wellies, raincoats and bobble hats. Perfect timing that we got a special delivery from Hatley then.

Hatley is a Canadian brand that is available online a ... Read More

MY SKINCARE SECRETS

8 Jan

,There are many different lotions and potions in my bathroom cabinet but, like most of you i'm guessing, there are only a select few that I really couldn't live without. Some are cult favourites, others are just my own personal recommendation. Skincare + beauty. Here's my routine.

First up cleanse, tone and moisturise. I have always been a Clarins girl, but recently I switched skincare to Jurlique. My love affair with Jurlique began on a trip to Australia about five years ago, where I was introduced to rose water mist. I have been using it ever since, a bottle e ... Read More

So it's here, 2016! Happy New Year! I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and celebrated the NY in style. Even if it was just with a delicious supper and some champagne at home with friends and family. As parents this is more often than not the case when it comes to NYE, no?

Now that 2016 is in full swing it's time to start thinking about what is planned for the year ahead, and what resolutions, if any, to make. It's usually a good idea to choose things that are attainable. I have learnt this from experience. My main resolution is to be more organised. in fact this ... Read More

EXCITING NEW ACCESSORIES FOR JOOLZ

15 Dec

Jollz car seat
Sorry for the lack of posts recently. The few months pre-Christmas are literally my busiest time of year. My business, selling traditional and wooden children's toys, so that kind of makes sense! I am so looking forward to some time off over Christmas and New Year. I will be heading back re-fuelled and re-charged for an exciting 2016. Gosh that sounds funny doesn't it. Seems like 2006 only the other day.

Anyway, time being precious, a blog update from me needed to be motivated by something exciting and extra special. And it is. Joolz, my most recommende ... Read More

CHILDREN’S BEDLINEN BY HOLLYHOCK HOME

3 Dec

Holly.hock-home
One of the best things about Instagram (and also one of the best places to catch up with me in between posts) is discovering unique new brands. I recently came across the perfect example of a wonderful new discovery. And just in time as i'm currently in the process of making the transition for E from a cot to cot-bed. We are just about to take the sides of her cot and introduce her very own duvet, which in turn requires that special first bed linen. Introducing Hollyhock home.

Hollyhock home is perhaps the most beautiful, vintage-styled design ... Read More

LUXURY GIFT IDEAS FOR MUM

25 Nov

Gift ideas
I have been thinking a lot about what I might like for Christmas. My husband asked me the other day and I must admit I wasn't really too sure. As a 'mum' there isn't really anything too specific that I fancy. Previously, and as Mumzynot started out as a proper mummy blog, I would have endless gift ideas all baby related. Now, the girls are getting bigger and all those mum-type gifts are no longer part of the equation. However, being a girl, not just a mum, there are a few things I wouldn't mind discovering under the tree come Christmas morning.

First on ... Read More

THE PERFECT PARTY PIECES. LE-MU LONDON.

16 Nov

FullSizeRender (3)
As party season fast approaches thoughts turn to Christmas outfits. What to wear for all those festive parties and birthday celebrations? In our family October through to December is super-busy birthday wise! That's before we even get to Christmas eve or New Year. So with lunches, drinks and dinners in abundance it's important to be outfit-ready. There's nothing more stressful than realising you have nothing to wear.

My own wardrobe dilemmas aside, when it comes to the girls outfit selection can be just as fraught. I have learnt from experience that it's way more beneficial inve ... Read More

CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS FOR THE GIRLS

4 Nov

Kukkia Magic board £49.95
So we may only just have made it into November, and you may feel it's still too early to be really thinking about Christmas, but seeing as it's my favourite time of year I can't wait to get thinking, planning and buying! Plus, there are actually only seven weekends left. When you look at it like that?

First up it's the girls. There is SO much inspiration out there, it really is necessary to have a good think before going full steam ahead. As with everything else, I like to buy fewer more quality gifts. Toys that I know will remain post-Christmas, rather than ones that w ... Read More

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MONSOON!

2 Nov

Last weekend A and I were invited to an exclusive party, to celebrate 20 years of Monsoon Kids. Held at the Tower of London, upon arrival we were transported into a magical woodland world. There were many highlights from the day and the face painting was out of this world. I could never imagine a more beautiful unicorn! Just for fun A and I decided to wear matching Monsoon looks. Not something I would usually do, but it seemed more than appropriate on this occasion, and actually rather a cute idea.

Celebrations aside, we got to view some of their new season pieces. I fell in lov ... Read More
