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

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

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

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

Eat Sleep Love. The nursery consultants.

28 Apr

east sleep love
As you probably already know the world of parenting is a minefield. There is a different product, opinion, wives-tale, about literally every aspect. From personal experience, the best approach to all of this is; explore everything and then make up your own mind. You are the parent and at the end of the day only your choice, your opinion, matters. So when something comes along that is designed to make some of these choices easier, based on this exact same philosophy, well, that's a good thing.

Introducing nursery consultants eat sleep love. The concept i ... Read More

Pom pom knits from Kalinka Kids. What's not to love?

I'm constantly on the search for good quality, affordable, and stylish, children's clothing. This happens to mostly occur online these days as I find the high street rather lacking in it's appeal. I have also really noticed that quality is not half as good as it used to be? So latest discover Kalinka Kids is the perfect example when it comes to all those adorable and unique children's boutiques now available to shop online. The pom pom jumpers are just the cutest thing I have ... Read More

INCY INTERIORS CHILDREN’S ROOM INSPO

12 Apr

Little dwellings incy
Running a parenting and style blog, alongside a children's toy and interiors boutique, pretty much go hand in hand. Both have become my passion. Through my blog and the discoveries of many unique and wonderful, toys, products and brands, I have been able to introduce some amazing new lines to my business. Many of which are in fact Β unique to the UK market.

I don't really like to cross over from my blog to the business too much, as I don't want you guys to think that I am biased in my opinions. (Obviously I love everything I sell through Cottage Toys and so will ... Read More
