Pretty dresses, bluebells and a Giveaway

Athena might the sort of girl who loves scurrying about in the woods, waving sticks about, looking under logs for insects and making dens but given the choice she’d much rather do all that in a dress! So where better to head in a very pretty dress that she picked from the selection at David Charles Children’s Wear [sent for…

What the kids wore: Bright & Bold with shopDisney [ad/gifted]

This post features gifted products from shopDisney, though all words, opinions and photos are my own. Arlo looks up to Athena for so many things, if he’s unsure of himself he will look to her and mimic whatever her reaction is… fairly annoying if it’s food related as it means he won’t try anything she doesn’t like!

What the Kids Wore: Jackets & Hoodies

Arlo is at the height where a lot of his 18-24 month clothes are too small, but his age 2-3 sized things swamp him. It’s so frustrating that brands can’t just match sizing across the board as some things in 2-3 are okay and other brands he’s still got lots of life left in the 18-24 sized! Anyway, I have…

What the kids wore: Bobux Shoes

I love choosing shoes for my kids, although actually Athena chooses most of her shoes now as she’s suddenly got very into choosing what she wears and what she likes the look of. Bobux is a brand that I am quietly confident that I will like anything she chooses from their ranges! Unlike high-street shoe shops full of sparkles and…
