SPOOK IN STYLE

My kids are getting verry excited about Halloween. It’s everywhere at the moment isn’t it? We’re definitely getting more and more commercial each year but it’s good fun and an excuse to eat sweets and paint faces. I love it.

After Claudia Winkleman’s daughter suffered that awful accident, I’ve heard so many more horror stories about nasty supermarket costumes going up in flames. So I’m not buying them anymore. Not to mention the fact they’re all really quite gross!

Hattie was begging me for the most revolting Sainsbury’s witch dress the other day but I stood my ground and I’ve been on a mission to find some less hideous Halloween outfits ever since.

Here they are! I think they’re just as fun, some are actually wearable after Halloween or as pjs and hopefully a bit more stylish and a bit less flammable!? Continue reading

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

BAGS FOR LIFE NOT JUST FOR BABIES

(Note: I know you’ll probably go straight to the pics/ prouducts and I know I have wittered on a bit but do read my ramblings so you can see why I’ve chosen the bags I have!)

 I have seen many changing bag monstrosities. For some reason perfectly stylish people can fall at this hurdle. Yes, I do accept that once you have a baby who needs a zillion changes of clothes a day and sicky muslins, wet wipes and breadsticks become a permanent fixture Continue reading
