Little dwellings incy
Running a parenting and style blog, alongside a children's toy and interiors boutique, pretty much go hand in hand. Both have become my passion. Through my blog and the discoveries of many unique and wonderful, toys, products and brands, I have been able to introduce some amazing new lines to my business. Many of which are in fact  unique to the UK market.

I don't really like to cross over from my blog to the business too much, as I don't want you guys to think that I am biased in my opinions. (Obviously I love everything I sell through Cottage Toys and so will ... Read More

Coco and Wolf little B
I love anything pretty. So i'm very lucky to have two girls. When it comes to nursery and bedroom style (or clothing) I can go all out.  My latest love is Coco & Wolf. Handmade in England with vintage styling, and Liberty print is in abundance. From a full liberty-fabric-dress, to a more subtle collar detail, their children's clothing collection is currently one of my favourites. C&W have also just launched the most beautiful bedding and accessories, which is what I am currently most excited about.

We recently returned from a couple of weeks in Italy where my youngest ( ... Read More

So the weather isn't' much of a reflection today, but seeing as it's Chelsea Flower show this week I am feeling a little floral. And thanks to these two utterly adorable brands, the littlest ones can too.

Alimrose designs, Australia's favourite when it comes to baby gifts, have the sweetest collection of baby soft toys, including these cute dolls. They come in lots of different sizes and styles (the ballerina dolls are extra lovely) but my favourite has to be Audrey Sweet Blossom. (The little ones adore her equally so, thanks to her pretty face and little size for tiny hands. Do ... Read More

I love searching out cool new children's brand and boutiques. I find myself more often than not these days purchasing on-line. Simply because that's where you can find the most unique and gorgeous things. Whether it be clothing, toys or interiors, I so much prefer high-quality stylish pieces that are different. For me a children's bedroom or nursery should be just as well designed as any other room in your house.

When it comes to little interiors then, this cannot be more of the case. I just adored decorating both my girls nurseries. It is one of the most exciting parts about ne ... Read More

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

I have been meaning to share pictures of the finished nursery for a while now. Then baby came along, and well time has just flown away.

This morning I did manage to finally snap a few images. A's room is a lot more girly in contrast. Second time around I wanted to have something more neutral. I am currently obsessed with grey so this seemed like a logical start. I love the calming feel that Farrow and Ball's Blackened creates. Combined with white and a little bit of taupe, baby's new space is exactly how I envisaged it would be.

Finishing touches come fro ... Read More

Just came across these adorable crochet baby mobiles. Do you know anyone that can knit?

I would just adore something like this for the new nursery, I think the bunnies are my favourite. But I feel the £60+ price tag is a little steep so not sure I can justify it? (If you can knit this would be a great little business venture, supplied a little more reasonably? I would be your first customer.) They are really hard to find, literally Etsy is the only place.

Let me know! Or perhaps I should take up knitting myself....

The past few days have been spent mostly snuggled up under a blanket in front of the fire, both A and I have caught this bug that seems to be going around. Snoozing and feeling sorry for myself aside, I have also had time on my hands with an uncharacteristic sleeping babe allowing for some serious internet action.

I think this 'nesting stage' has fuelled my current obsession with all things baby and kids, and as a result I have come across some really cool things that I feel I need in my life (Or should I say in the life of my little one and one-to-be.) The only bummer being I s ... Read More
