CHRISTMAS PAJAMAS

16 Nov

Kath kitson
One tradition in our house is new Pajamas to wear on Christmas eve. I love seeking out my favourite pair for the girls and each year the offering becomes greater and greater, making the task harder and harder. If you know me you will know I am indecisive at the best of times. Which is my favourite?

Go-to's include Gap Kids and The Little White Company. I think it's important for sleepwear to be as soft and comfortable as possible and both brands seem to offer a lovely quality. They also have sweet designs that are not too colourful or garish, for both boys, girls and us mamas. ... Read More

LUXURY GIFT IDEAS FOR MUM

25 Nov

Gift ideas
I have been thinking a lot about what I might like for Christmas. My husband asked me the other day and I must admit I wasn't really too sure. As a 'mum' there isn't really anything too specific that I fancy. Previously, and as Mumzynot started out as a proper mummy blog, I would have endless gift ideas all baby related. Now, the girls are getting bigger and all those mum-type gifts are no longer part of the equation. However, being a girl, not just a mum, there are a few things I wouldn't mind discovering under the tree come Christmas morning.

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

TIMELESS BEAUTY WITH LOQUET LONDON

12 Oct

Loquet
One piece of jewellery that I have wanted for quite some time now is a necklace. I like the idea of something personal, and up until now a Monica Vinader engraved pendant was top of my list. Ever since having my daughters I have wanted some jewellery to represent their birth, our life and love. I have wanted a personalised necklace that I can wear everyday and never take off. Then I came across Loquet.

Loquet is still a relatively new name in the world of luxury jewellery. A British concept created by Sheherazade Goldsmith with Laura Bailey that launched in June ... Read More

A CHRISTMAS JUMPER?

12 Dec

Etoile Isabel Marant
It's obligatory right? At some point over the festive season you are requested to don that Christmas jumper. Whether you adhere or not is another matter.

If you do decide to play the game, after-all it's just a little fun, you are not un-spoilt for choice. There are a lot of Christmas styles out there to choose from. From Tesco, to Topshop, to Isabel Marant. Every budget is catered for, and every-kinda style statement too. I personally think I will go for something a little subtle, fair-isle is always a good option as it's not just for the festive period and can be worn ... Read More

GIFTS FOR HIM

10 Dec

The hardest person to buy for at Christmas, it's always the man? Why is that?

Dads are easy, and happy with most things, Brothers - the same goes really, you can never go wrong with clothes or some aftershave. But for him I find it a lot more challenging. You want something a little more, but without having to spend too much. (Unless you can afford that new Rolex.) So what am I thinking? Well I still don't have anything decided, but I have stumbled across a few possibilities.

My latest discovery Tom Dixon has some really chic, contemporary gifts ... Read More

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

DEAR SANTA

2 Dec

Moniva vinader
Now December is finally here it's time to start thinking gifts. And also time to start thinking about that wish-list. It's always fun creating your own gift-list, even if it is just in your head.

So what would I like to un-wrap this year Santa? Well being a typical female, fashion-loving, shoes and handbag obsessive, it's kinda easy. I'm also partial to anything Alex Monroe or Monica Vinader. (Specifically I would love an MV engraved necklace in rose gold.) I'm also in the market for some new perfume, seeing as my three year old has taken to my current collection so intently, I ...

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
