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

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MONSOON!

2 Nov

Last weekend A and I were invited to an exclusive party, to celebrate 20 years of Monsoon Kids. Held at the Tower of London, upon arrival we were transported into a magical woodland world. There were many highlights from the day and the face painting was out of this world. I could never imagine a more beautiful unicorn! Just for fun A and I decided to wear matching Monsoon looks. Not something I would usually do, but it seemed more than appropriate on this occasion, and actually rather a cute idea.

Celebrations aside, we got to view some of their new season pieces. I fell in lov ... 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

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

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

MINI-SHOE LOVE

24 Feb

Peacock-print, French Blossom Boutique
It's coming to that time again, new shoes for A. I love shoes and love shopping for mini-shoes. Spring is in the air and Summer just around the corner, which means those wear-with-all winter boots will soon become redundant. Even though this makes me a little bit sad, knowing those favourites will never get worn again (they grow too fast), it is also super exciting shopping for those new additions.

Thankfully children's footwear has come a long way. Clarks?! This makes mini-shoe shopping a lot easier, but at the same time a lot harder. Being sensible you can't g ... Read More
