Like most mums, I think, I tend to live vicariously through Luisa. One of my vices is clothes shopping for her, there are just so many cute things you can pick up and thanks to online shopping it’s oh so easy for a few bits to fall in your basket. I’ve been taking on a lot fewer reviews on the blog this year but when one of my favourite brands got in touch about their new collection I couldn’t help myself.     I featured From Babies With Love in November when I showed you their range of organic soft toys.…

I’m sure you can tell by now I have a bit of a problem with baby clothes. I love every aspect of little peoples fashion from shopping on the high-street to browsing online finding boutique brands and supporting small businesses. So when Rockin’ Baby got in touch to see if we wanted to try out their new Summer collection of course I accepted.   Until now all I knew about Rockin’ Baby was that they are an American brand who sell very cool baby carriers and slings. Already being a fan of their fun prints I was excited to see what…

As a recent survivor of a holiday with a baby I thought I’d share with you some of the bits and pieces that made our lives a whole lot easier. We had our first family holiday abroad in late April this year. Matt, Luisa and I headed to sunny Crete and had a brilliant week, you can read more about what we got up to here. Of course you’ll want to pack the true essentials; clothes, nappies, suncream and snacks if your baby is fussy. But there are a few other things that I’d really reccomend you invest in before…

There’s very little I’d rather spend my money on than adorable baby clothes and I don’t think I’m alone in that. I have been trying to curb my spending over the last few months as Luisa’s wardrobe was ready to burst. Much to my delight she had a bit of a growth spurt recently so I had a legitimate reason to hit the high-street. The icing on the cake came last week when House of Fraser got in touch and asked if we’d like to pick out a few items and try to stick to a budget of £35. The selection…

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you’ll know I am an absolute sucker for pretty baby clothes. Luisa has far too many, I know, but I love how versatile and eclectic her wardrobe is. Now if only I could figure out a way to enlarge it all for me… Last year Luisa had the pleasure of rocking the softest, cutest pair of shoes from Bambini and Me. You might have spotted them in my post ‘Autumn Winter BabyStyle’ This Summer we’re falling in love with the brand all over again as Lu has been wearing their new bamboo bodysuit…

When Luisa was about 3 months old I had a spare minute to gather my thoughts and I started to investigate the world of cloth nappies. I was really keen to have Luisa ditch the disposables for a few reasons. Firstly I know that reusable nappies are much better for her skin being softer and pretty much chemical free in comparison to disposable nappies. Of course another draw is that the environmental impact of disposable nappies is pretty immense. In England & Wales alone 3 billion nappies are disposed of every year. Yikes. As if that’s not reason enough to…

Mocc Ons are the latest in a line of genius creations from entrepreneurial Mum of 6 Kezi Levin. Mocc Ons are basically a cross between a moccasin and a slipper sock. The leather sole helps to provide grip for those first forays into walking and the cotton sock element keeps little legs toasty. Like all fabulous parenting inventions Kezi’s first innovation was borne of necessity. In her own words here are how the award winning Sock Ons came to be. I’m a mum of six boys – and the idea behind Sock Ons came from my own family. We had a wedding…

On the 12th of May Luisa will be 1 and quite honestly the thought of it makes me sick to my stomach. Where on earth has the last year gone!? Naturally I’m distracting myself by organising the most fabulous first birthday party I can possibly dream up. And how fabulous could said party really be without a wonderful party dress? I’ve had a browse online and come up with a few options that Miss L might like to wear on her special day.     As I said in my recent update Lu is currently wearing size 9-12 month clothing and…

The lovely folks at Funky Giraffe recently gave me a voucher to choose some of their bibs to try out for the purposes of this review. This couldn’t have come at a better time as Luisa is teething non-stop at the minute, despite not have a single tooth to show for it. A teething baby is hard enough work without having to contend with dribble rash on her little chest too! You only have to take a quick look on the Funky Giraffe site to see that they have a big range of bibs in designs to suit every taste.…
