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

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.

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

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

THE WHITE SHIRT

29 Mar

White shirt style
There is something about the perfect white shirt. Men, woman (maternity) and even little ones.  It's just a timeless piece however you choose to wear it. For such an effortless piece then, why is it so hard to find the perfect one?

For me that perfect one needs to be structured yet retain the softness you only get from the best quality cotton. It can't be too sheer, or crease at the slightest fold. It also needs to be some kind of boyfriend fit. The same rules apply when shopping for my husband or the girls. (An added criteria for the girls is a ruffle or peter-pan collar.) Wit ... Read More

BITS FOR THE BABIES

27 May

Two-little-birds
When I have a spare minute or two I like to look around my favourite online baby boutiques and see what's 'new-in'. These days the majority of my shopping is done from the laptop, there is no way I am hitting the shops with two-in-tow. If I have a shopping trip planned I like to make the most of it. Solo.

When it comes to bits for the little ones I tend to search around for unique, quality pieces. I like to stick to the theory quality over quantity. Favourite destinations include the obvious Little White Company, just the most gorgeous understated bed linens. And a cute hanging ... Read More

SUNSHINE

We were sure to make the most of this past weekends glorious sunshine. (Clearly a wise move as, surprise surprise, it didn't last.) BBQ's, family and friends were the perfect combination to those hot sunny days.

For laid back summer dressing 'mini-style' you can't beat a cute little romper. Baby Gap editions are my go-to right now for both the girls. Cute, comfy and casual A's lightweight denim version is a favourite, and I love anything in white for baby E.  So does she clearly, judging by that smile.

When it comes to my summer uniform right now, a basi ... Read More

Orefo-design
The sun has finally been shining today and as a result I have been inspired to search out some favourite mini-looks for SS14. A is in desperate need of some new clothes and as Mr. Sunshine is telling me (today at least) Spring is just around the corner.

So, where am I going to be shopping for these cute new SS threads? To be honest I think the internet is the best place to be. I am currently in love with online boutiques such as Orefo (some of the coolest brands you will never have heard of but just have to have. And Oeuf NY).
