Occasion wear for children

Occasion wear for children can be so fun to buy… I love going shopping to see what cute outfits I can find. Here are my top picks for Benjamin’s first birthday. For the birthday boy himself, I’m thinking of either a waistcoat suit which is light and not too cumbersome to move in and some smarter first walking shoe. Or going a little more casual with a shirt and waistcoat with jeans and more trainer looking first shoes.     {Read More}

Hatley Reversible Winter Puffer: Review

Isabella seems to be growing at a rate of knots at the moment so just before Christmas we looked at getting her a new coat. When he were given the chance to review a reversible puffer from Hatley, I couldn’t have been happier. It arrived and was an instant hit with Isabella who wore it round the house for a good hour before letting me hang it up.  The thing I like the most about the Hatley Girl’s Reversible Winter Puffer-Butterflies {Read More}

Getting ready for the snow

I’ve mentioned Aldi’s Specialbuys range a few times before now and I have to say, I’ve never been disappointed. Their ranges have always been well made and even better value and their new Ski range is no different. I’ve been testing out the ladies ski jacket which is windproof, waterproof and breathable. If you are using this as an actual ski jacket (I don’t ski but will use it throughout winter), it has a key card pocket on the sleeve {Read More}

Getting Snuggly with Frugi

Ok so it’s beginning to become apparent that I have a bit of a thing for Benjamin and dungarees! I think 90% of his outfits are dungarees so when we were offered a further chance to work with The Frugi Family and I spotted the Leo Reversible Dungarees, I was in my element and knew I had to get them.  As soon as they arrived, I couldn’t wait to put Benjamin in them and he’s worn them so much already. {Read More}

Frugi Family – autumn/winter collection Billie Pram Suit

Being a part of the Frugi Family means that Benjamin gets to try out some of their beautiful clothes from their new ranges. Back in the summer I wrote about their gorgeous sailor dungarees which lasted long into the summer and still look almost new. Now we’ve been given a chance to review something from their Autumn/Winter collection. Because of our wonderful weather, I decided to try out the Nee Naw Billie Pram Suit from their Adventure range.  It’s made {Read More}

KoziKids Regn Kappa Rain Coat

With the wonderful summer weather we tend to get in the UK, I knew it wouldn’t be too long before we got the chance to try out Isabella’s new KoziKidz rain coat.     I really love the quality and feel of the rain coat; it’s made from a stretchy PU coated polyester and is not only 100% waterproof but it’s also very easy to wear. It boasts a large (detachable) elasticated hood with a little peak at the front to {Read More}

SwimPak Review

With summer almost upon us and six whole weeks to fill up (perhaps with some watery adventures!), we’ve been road-testing this absolutely adorable frog SwimPak from LittleLife. It’s a 10litre bag which means it’s got plenty of room for all your children’s clothes and accessories but more than that, it has a water-resistant exterior meaning that these clothes stay clean and dry. It’s wonderfully lightweight and made from a strong and durable nylon fabric so it’s not going to feel {Read More}

Frugi Organic Clothing

If you haven’t heard of Frugi before, you’re in for a treat today! Frugi offer the most gorgeously designed organic clothes for your little ones. It started out in 2004 as a family run business called Cut4Cloth catering for the extra room required when using cloth nappies; the business spiralled until in 2008 Kurt and Lucy decided to add kiddies clothing (up to 10 years) and nursing ranges and re-branded themselves Frugi. Frugi use organic cotton which is super soft {Read More}

Slumbersac Baby Sleeping Bags with Feet

I actually want one of these myself! But Isabella has had the chance to try out the Slumbersac sleeping bag with openings for her feet. This is absolutely perfect for her because since she was about 18 months, she’s absolutely hated having her feet covered at night. The Slumbersac sleeping bag with feet means that she stays snug ad warm all night long but she’s also able to get out of bed in the morning. The sleeping bags are designed so {Read More}

My Little Duckling Pilot Hat

If you are after a gorgeous and fun hat for your little one, you really must pop over to My Little Duckling. They have designed these gorgeously cute pilot hats which not only serve as a lovely warm hat, but also as a dressing up accessory! What could be better?! We were kindly given the chance to review one and Isabella absolutely loves it. She wants to wear it all the time, even inside and thinks it’s brilliant fun. Where {Read More}
