BABY BONNET

17 Nov

bonnet 1
As an Instagram addict, fuelled by both my blog and also my business, I basically make every single one of my purchases these days from something I have seen on one of those tiny little squares. (Unless it's Zara!) My community of like minded mums, mum bosses, friends and family, is constantly fuelling my shopping desires. Much to my husbands annoyance.

My latest obsession is baby bonnets. There is literally nothing cuter than a little one in a bonnet. Styles for summer in floral or liberty print will always catch my eye. For winter I like Read More

CHRISTMAS PAJAMAS

16 Nov

One tradition in our house is new Pajamas to wear on Christmas eve. I love seeking out my favourite pair for the girls and each year the offering becomes greater and greater, making the task harder and harder. If you know me you will know I am indecisive at the best of times.Β Which is my favourite?

Go-to's include Gap Kids and The Little White Company. I think it's important for sleepwear to be as soft and comfortable as possible and both brands seem to offer a lovely quality. They also have sweet designs that are not too colourful or garish, for both boys, girls and us mamas. ... Read More

SUDIO SWEDEN. CHIC WIRELESS EARPHONES

10 Nov

IMG_7014 (002)
I don't often listen to music these days. i'm not sure why, aside from the fact that we no longer own a cd player (who does?) and I literally have no idea how to download a song! I think maybe it's also to do with having children. Life is a constant rush that there never seems to be the opportunity. The one time I do get to listen to music is in the car, but only when the girls are not with me. My youngest especially hates having music on in the car as it means she can't talk. She loves to talk and does not appreciate having to compete against the radio. Which is fair enough and anyway, I love ... Read More

THE JOOLZ DAY 2. WHY’S IT BETTER THAN THE FIRST?

2 Nov

joolz day 2
Before I discovered Joolz It was Bugaboo. I loved my Chameleon and it severed me well when Annabella was a baby. But when Evelyn came along my head was turned by these new kids on the block. I received my Joolz Day just before she was born, and I haven't looked back since. You probably knew this already? And are wondering where i'm going with this post? Well, as the title suggests it's now all about the Joolz Day 2. The question is, how can it really be any better than the one I've got?

  • Well there are several main points to mention when introducing the ... Read More

OUTSIDE THE LINES

26 Oct

lookbook
I don't know about you but I have found that as soon as Annabella turned three our favourite high street stores; Zara, Mango, Gap Kids just decided to give up? Their collections, bar a few pieces, went down hill, in terms of both quality and style. As a result I have been forced to do all my shopping for her online. Thankfully there are a wealth of adorable independent children's boutiques out there. And I am constantly discovering new ones.

Old favourites include Greenberry kids, Ali Oli, Mama Owl to name a few. I have also recently discovered so exciting new boutiques ... Read More

WINTER COATS

14 Oct

zara coat
Last winter I purchased my dream coat from Net A Porter. Grey, oversized, long-length and wool. I can't actually emphasis how long I was looking for this exact coat. It was quite expensive, even on sale, but you know when you just fall in love with something and have to have it no matter what? Well that happened. And it turns out it was actually quite the investment as I wore it literally every day. I am looking forward to doing the same this winter.

As a result I'm not really in the market for a new winter coat this year. I don't think I can ever beat the one I ... Read More

WIDE-FITTING CHILDREN’S SHOES

29 Sep

Young Soles
My first daughter has lovely slim feet, and can literally wear any kind of shoe. She has quite the collection in-fact. So when I found out I was having another girl I was pleased to think that these could then be handed down. It made me feel a lot less guilty for all those purchases. However, when Evelyn was fitted for her first pair of shoes I was gutted to discover that her feet were going to be far to wide for any of her sisters beautiful hand-me-downs.

Nevermind I thought, that's a good excuse for me to invest in her very own shoe collection. Little did I know that it would ... Read More

MAMA OWL

15 Sep

minimalisma kids 1
Mama Owl is my new obsession. The most gorgeous collection of childrenswear featuring some adorable and unique brands for ages 0-8 years old. I just spotted they are now stockists of Minamalisa for example. Those silk seamless bodies are a dream and they go up to age 6, which is such a rarity. Organic designs and merino wool are also in abundance. Perfect if you are starting to think about AW.

Other favourites from their collection include Misha and puff (the popcorn sweaters!) and Poudre Organic. I really struggle to find collared bodies and t ... Read More

BACK TO SCHOOL

24 Aug

Boden
Back to school. With just two weeks to go i'm conscious that I need to start getting organised. First up then, school shoes. We could probably eek out another term's worth of receptions pair if they weren't looking quite so worse for wear. But I would feel totally mean sending Annabella into year one looking anything but polished and smart. She would be mortified if no-one else. So the hunt is on for something practical, (velcro straps), in black leather, (she's not allowed blue or patent) and that also look cute. I am not a Clark's shopper.

If you have ... Read More

POM-POMS AND POPLIN

18 Aug

IMG_3613
Apologies for my extreme lack of radio silence. The combination of school holiday's, summer in Italy and trying to keep on-top of running my own business, has resulted in me literally having no spare time to blog. However, I have been getting so many PR and collaboration requests recently, I though it best time I update things.

So what better place to start than with a bit of fashion inspiration? In-particular two of my current favourite trends - pom-pom flats and poplin. Extravagant and fun, the pom-pom flat had been trending for a whi ... Read More
