RAINCOATS AND WELLIES BY HATLEY

20 Jan

FullSizeRender (18)
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

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

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

JURLIQUE BABY SKINCARE

21 Oct

IMG_0940
So you already know I'm a Jurlique fan. Rosewater mist is a permanent fixture on my bathroom shelf, in my gym bag, handbag and at the time hospital bag. I basically can't live without it when i'm feeling tired and my skin needs a boost. (All the time.) So it was really exciting to discover that there is also a range for the little ones. I never knew?

I received a gorgeous package just the other day with all the necessary baby bits. Lavender infused essential oils that are designed to soothe and care for a babies sensitive skin, found within a barrier cream, moisturiser, ... Read More

A MOSES BASKET TO RIVAL ANY OTHER

30 Sep

Plum and sparrow 2
So I came across the most divine babies moses basket today on Instagram. So beautiful, gorgeous, unique, I just had to share. I mean have you ever seen one so beautiful? Forget the new Mamas and Papas Liberty range. If you expecting and looking for the perfect, safe place for your newborn bundle to snuggle and sleep, this is it.

Plum + Sparrow is a mother of four, inspired by the world around her, and driven by life's experiences, to create something totally unique, natural and wonderful for her baby. I think she's done a pretty good job, judging by the fact that currently every ... Read More

FORGET TRUNKI. IT’S ALL ABOUT SAMSONITE’S NEW CHILDREN’S COLLECTION

22 Sep

iconic wheely
Much to the probable annoyance of those dragons, Trunki has become a household name. We own one, and the same goes for pretty much everyone I know that has small children and travels. However, personally, they are actually more of a hindrance than a help. That cute airport ride-on, that's designed to make travelling with children easier and fun, is far from it. Perhaps if you could pull them around corners and they didn't fall over at the first hurdle I wouldn't be so anti. But for now the Trunki is definitely more fun for children than it is for parents. Subsequently our Trunki has been 'brok ... Read More

BURGUNDY PIECES

17 Sep

Burgundy
According to the fashion guides Burgundy is the colour of the season. And that's fine by me. I've never been a huge fan of red. It's a difficult hue to master stylishly especially if you are blonde. And even then i'm not a fan on me. I honestly don't think I have one piece in my wardrobe that's red. However, burgundy I am all over. Classic, stylish, yet remaining sultry.  A cashmere sweater, bag or burgundy skirt has gone straight to the top of my list of new season updates. Preferably in cord or velvet.

What I love even more is that this trend has filtered down into c ... Read More

WIDE FITTING. HELP!

15 Sep

Bubble
I never thought I would have such a problem finding girls shoes. The market is a-wash with some adorable brands and stores - my favourites include Papouelli, Max and May and a latest discovery, online boutique, I adore little feet. We are also lucky as we visit Italy a lot. Need I say more? One thing is for sure my eldest daughter was, and still is, spoilt for choice when it comes to footwear.

Upon the news of hearing number two was also a girl, I was thrilled to discover my shoe addiction could be passed on. Number two would have a ready-made shoe collection. It made me feel co ... Read More
