On Tuesday A and I attended the Startrite shoes press day in London. It was a fun-filled afternoon with clowns, magic, music and of course, lots of shoes!

In attendance were some of my favorite bloggers, magazines and independent press - All there to view the latest in babies and children's footwear, from one of the UK's largest footwear brands.

As you can imagine A and I were in shoe heaven. The current collections for Spring/Summer are utterly divine! Think patent-pastels, bows and printed canvas for the girls and super-cool boat shoes, denim sneakers and lace ... Read More

BABY BUD FROM MAMAS AND PAPAS

28 Mar

mamas and papas bud
This is probably a familiar story, or it will be soon if you are expecting baby no.1:

Your little one is no-longer a helpless baby that is easy to control. She has learnt to feed herself and drink from a cup and now wants to be as 'grown-up' as possible when it comes to dinner time. This means a highchair to sit in is no longer acceptable!? There is nothing worse than battling with a headstrong toddler especially at times like this, when really they are not being naughty, just frustrated. Mummy and daddy sit on a chair at the table, so why can't I? There is now a solution. Tha ... Read More

BLOOMING LOVELY JEWELLERY

27 Mar

pebble-silver-bola-large
I was recently sent one of these super chic pregnancy pendants from a cute new jewellery brand, Blooming Lovely Jewellery. Their new collection is aimed at mums-to-be and features the magical Mexican Bola.



The Mexican Bola necklace is derived from a beautiful story about how Mexican woman traditionally wore this same Bola, to bond with their unborn babies. 'Worn low over Mummy’s growing bump, the soft tinkling chime of the pendant is said to gently serenade and soothe baby as Mum goes about her daily life. When the little one arrives, the same relaxing sounds ... Read More

BATHTIME FUN WITH BOON

25 Mar

Boon
Last week A was lucky enough to be send some new bath toys from the fabulous Boon. We received a Whale pod, scrubble bugs and a not your average rubber duck! All very exciting for a 21 month old, as you can imagine.

A adores the bath and would spend hours in there if she was allowed and time permitted. She loves to play with all her toys and these latest additions from Boon Inc are no exception. She finds it fascinating trying to undo each of the scrubble bugs to fill them with water, and then squeeze it out again. She also loves to go fishing with the little net, and is thrille ...

PLAYROOM INSPIRATION

21 Mar

I thought you might like to see what we have done with A's playroom - it is finally finished.

I have had lots of fun decorating her play-space. I wanted it to be a room that she can grow into, and that will also easily transform to a more adult space once she gets older. Whilst looking for inspiration I came across the most divine Osborne and Little wallpaper that I instantly fell in love with and the playroom seemed like the perfect location. Being more on the expensive side a small wall was required.We ripped out some old bookshelves and wallpapered the inside, keeping a few ... Read More

HUNTER – THE ULTIMATE IN WELLINGTON BOOTS

20 Mar

Hunter gloss
I love Hunter boots, for me there is no other wellington. Iconic, British and super stylish, this is a brand that does wellies better than anyone else.

I already own a pair of Hunters in Pink and so does A. She loves hers so much that it is often a struggle to get her to wear anything else. The good news is, because they are Hunter, I don't mind - They actually look quite cute with a dress! Harper Beckham owns a pair, so if she can pull it off, so can A!

Just a week ago I received a fabulous gift from Hunter, a pair of their originals, in gloss black! I was thrill ... Read More
