NEXT BEST THINGS

…i’ve saved you the hassle and searched through that giant next catalogue to find all the best bIts for spring 🙂

This dress. It looked absolutely awful on the website and in the store amongst rails of cartoon emblazoned, fuschia and cheap (looking) sparkly knitted jumpers. I had a sneaky suspicion it would look entirely different at home Continue reading

SEPTEMBER GREY: MY INSTA SOUL SISTER 

Instagram is wonderful. I find inspiration in those little squares every day. It’s a way of seeking out and connecting with people who have similar interests and style, wherever you are in the world. From interiors to travel tips, craft ideas and recipes. I’m constantly being inspired on insta.

I love how you can pick and choose what your IG feed represents. Personally, Continue reading

LOOK WHAT I FOUND

..the perfect every day Mary Janes

I haven’t posted on here for SO long, life has just been getting in the way. I’ve also recently joined a book club and I’m under pressure to finish (start) the book in my precious evenings which have been totally hijacked my Rupert who refuses to go to bed at the mo. But that’s another boring story!

Anyway, I’m still finding lots of lovely bits and bobs for your (and my) little ones so just had to quickly share these beauties.   Continue reading

TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOLLY

..Isn’t it?! So BE jolly kids or santa will bring you nothing but a sack of coal.

Don’t laugh (or judge), I have lost count of the number of Father Christmas threats I have used already this month..  

 I adore Christmas. I actually love the whole of December. Despite being Jewish, I get so swept up in the magic of it. The mulled wine (drunk copiously because it’s hot and therefore not alcoholic), stollen, festive shop windows, nativities and tinny Christmas tunes everywhere you go. Love. it.all. Having kids just makes Christmas so much more special right? Right. But it’s not all merry and jolly and bright.. at least not in our household. Continue reading

TOASTY TOTS

Make sure your toddlers are wrapped up in the cutest winter wardrobe..

Helloo! I’ve been busy busy busy with the gang over half term but I’ve so enjoyed having some real time all together and I’ve loved getting everyone dressed in their autumny/ wintery clothes every day – I’m such a saddo.

I think by now you all know the winter style I love for my littlies.. ribbed tights in earthy colours, chunky knitwear, velvet, cord or knitted bloomers and collars..(Peter pan, frilled, roll neck any collar will do!) Easy peasy if you’re shopping in Caramel Baby and Child.. but if you don’t have thousands (literally) to blow on clothes that your kids will grow out of, I’ve done my usual sweep of more affordable shops and brands to bring you the same look for a lot, lot less.

WINTER WARMERS

It’s cold. Officially cold. We’re waking up in the dark and there’s a bite in the air that calls for coats and boots and lots of lovely knits. This is my favourite time of the year to be outside and it’s my favourite time of the year for clothes, big and small.  Continue reading

FOUR EYED AND FABULOUS

This is a bit of a move away from my normal stuff. Don’t worry I have lots of lovely autumn style finds to share, but I just have something to say on this subject, so here we go..

Hattie has worn glasses since she was two years old. I don’t think she even remembers life before glasses. We never had a problem with her keeping them on even at that tiny age. I think it was because she loved that she could actually see with them. She REALLY needs glasses and will do for the rest of her life.

When Hattie started back at school in year 1 a couple of weeks ago, she settled straight back in so well, she just LOVES school. But over the past week she’s started saying that she doesn’t want to wear her glasses and she prefers her face without them. Continue reading
