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

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

CHILDREN’S PARTIES GALORE

10 Jul

IMG_2047
June is literally the busiest month for us when it comes to children's birthday parties. When I was pregnant with A we did NCT class and all of us were due within a few weeks of each other. There were five of us in total, three girls and two boys. Would you believe that all three of our girls were born three days in a row?! The boys weren't far behind, and both came along within two weeks. For us then, June is a busy month of present buying and outfit planning. And there's no better excuse for me to pick out some cute new outfits so the girls can get dressed up. I use the excuse that ... Read More

WEDDING GUEST

12 Jun

Lavinia dress
I'm not pregnant but if I was, Madderson's Lavinia dress would be a strong contender for Summer's wedding season. Styled with gold, who says the pregnant guest can't win best dressed? (Bride aside.)

Madderson London, luxury maternity wear for stylish mums-to-be, have a stunning collection and their statement pieces this season are no exception. I discovered this brand during my last pregnancy and was blown away by their quality, design and ease of wear. I naturally progressed into womenswear and have held back those maternity p ...

Muddy creatures. Our box of Joy.

18 May

This is just the most exciting new shopping concept I have come across to date. Mostly because I have lost all interest in the high street when it comes to kids fashion, secondly because I never have the time to go shopping anyway. Muddy creatures, for young explorers. It really is a box of joy!

So what is Muddy Creatures and how does it work? The process is simple. Sign up and create a profile for your child, then sit back and relax whilst Anja sends you a box full of things she thinks you will love. You then have ten days to try them ... Read More
