MINI SCENTS

9 Dec

Baby perfumes
You may have read in my previous post how A has developed a penchant for my perfume? So this Christmas she is getting her own mini-scent in her stocking. Hopefully that will do the trick..

I never really took much notice of baby-perfumes before, so I might be wrong in saying this, but it seems like a lot more brands are getting on the bandwagon. This season there seem to be a lot of new scent releases aimed at babies and little ones? There are the established favourites, Bonpoint and Burberry have had their own mini-scents for a while, but now you can get it pretty much everywhe ... Read More

BUGABOO DONKEY

1 Dec

bUGABOO DONKEY
If looks could kill. I never though I would say this about a double-buggy, but Bugaboo have done it and i'm all eyes. The Bugaboo Donkey and in all-black. I love it.

I'm not in the market for a double-set of wheels but Bugaboo got in touch recently and asked me to give my thoughts. Because I liked what I saw so much, I have felt it worthy of a share. I must add here that I am a Bugaboo fan already, my Chameleon has lasted for two and is still going strong right now. All that was required for the transition between babies was a little face-lift. The genius behind Bugaboo's inter ... Read More

STOCKING FILLERS

26 Nov

Since having little ones the new highlight of Christmas has to be playing Santa.

There is nothing more innocent or magical about a child's excitement this time of year. A saw her first Christmas tree the other day, since returning from holiday last week, and was so happy. I think this is the first year she really gets it. She definitely gets Santa. So now we've hit December, and back to the point, it's time to get started on those stocking fillers.

This is where's it at right now. Oh and a Barbie electric tooth-brush. I have yet to start on little E, but in all ho ... Read More

ESTHEX

Welcome home, and it's back to the UK with a bump. (That's six loads of washing so far in 24 hours.)

Upon my return I have also been busily sifting through emails. It's always exciting to be introduced to new brands and products. One such that really caught my eye is Esthex. A cute Scandinavian brand created from the imagination of a little girl that grew up. Gorgeously detailed and animated characters created from re-discovered childhood illustrations.

Each character is carefully crafted with fair trade and ethics in mind. Made in Thailand within a humane and w ... Read More

IN-FLIGHT ESSENTIALS

12 Nov

Travelling with little ones requires a fair amount of organisation. On-top of outfit planning and packing for three, it's also important to be prepared for the journey. We have done a fair amount of long haul flying as a family so I like to think I am pretty good at what I do need, and what I actually really don't.

So what are my in-flight essentials? I have learnt few and far between. But without these few, things would not be quite so comfortable. Catch you later, that sea is calling me...

Love,

MY JOOLZ

3 Nov

Joolz
The 4 x 4 of travel systems, and trust me I've pretty much pushed them all. My Joolz studio Noir is the bees-knees, and incidentally doesn't come much chicer in all black.

There are 101 reasons why I would recommend the Joolz as your travel system, I was invited to their studio and showroom in Amsterdam not too long ago (read more here) which highlights most of them. But nothing highlights it more than actually owning and living with your own. Looks aside, for me their is no rival.

Love,

KATE SPADE + GAP KIDS

30 Oct

You heard it here first. Kate Spade NY for Gap Kids has just launched online and in store.

Think colour-pop clothing and accessories for both boys and girls in a limited edition collection. A real nod towards the Kate Spade signature in-keeping with the wear-ability of GAP Kids. Perhaps one of the best collaboration yet? I'm not convinced. For me it's the Jack Spade boys designs that stand out, I love the grown-up feel. Don't get me wrong there are also some cute pieces for the girls. My picks; the bow-print dress and ballerina pumps. But if I were to buy one thing it would be f ... Read More

WINTER SUN

23 Oct

Sunuva 1
We are off for some much needed winter sun in a couple of weeks and in preparation I have been searching for a few new editions for the girls. Luckily most of their summer wardrobe still fits, (thank goodness as it's always impossible to buy summer clothes in the winter!) but one thing I do desperately need is swimwear, specifically UV cover-up types.

A will be able to go to kids-club this trip (yipee's all around) so I feel it would be a good idea to invest in one or two of those UV rash vests. After a bit of google searching, 'Kids UV sun-suits' a good start, I discovered Sunu ... Read More

A NEW ADVENTURE

7 Oct

So things have been super-hectic this past few weeks as you will know from my lack of posts lately. Well one main reason for this, aside from a six-month old and a three year old, is the fact that I have taken on an exciting new project. Say hello to my new baby, Cottage-Toys.

The family business has now come into my hands. With the help of my brother, I have been excitedly re-launching our gorgeous online children's and baby boutique, which as you can imagine is very exciting. There is lots to do and at times it has been stressful, but there is also a bit of fun involved. What ... Read More

ANGEL & ROCKET

22 Sep

Where has this past week gone? Is it just me or is there never enough time in the day?  And the first thing that gets neglected is time with you guys. Sorry about that.

Once again time is of the essence but I would like to just quickly introduce an exciting new kids wear brand. Meet Angel & Rocket. Perhaps one of my new favourites. Top picks - The Freckle print dress and Helix cardi. I love anything in a warm autumnal hue this season and you cannot fail with a grey wool knit. Look to the Ridge jumper if you have a boy.

View the collection and shop here. (P.S ... Read More
