Fearne By Fearne Cotton For Boots Mini Club Autumn/Winter 2018

Yesterday we drove into London as we were invited by Boots Mini Club to come and see their new Autumn/Winter 2018 collection and the Fearne by Fearne Cotton collection exclusively designed by the gorgeous Fearne herself.

When we arrived there was a huge art and craft station for the kids to get creative at and add their own artwork on a lovely jute bag. Whilst Archie and Oscar were decorating their bags I walked around and looked at the new collection of clothes.

I started off in the baby room which was full of warm and cosy items ready to keep you little ones warm as the weather gets colder. So much extra detail has gone into the baby clothes; everything is 100% cotton for extra softness on delicate skin, everything also has nickle-free poppers to prevent any irritation and inside so you never miss a popper out again one is coloured copper, so you know to ‘always start with the copper popper’. So clever! I can’t tell you the amount of times I did poppers up wrong on sleep suits when changing the boys when I was so tired. One collection has little penguins on it which is so cute and the elephant cuddle robe is just adorable and super soft. For baby girls there are pretty dresses and tights sets and for boys lovely dungarees sets. My favourite is the knit dungarees set its so cute. There is also a Mickey and Minnie collection which is 0-24 months, A Wild World collection full of warm, soft hooded jumpers, bright prints and cosy knits. As well as all of your newborn essentials coming soon to Boots Mini Club is a super delicate premature baby range. I couldn’t believe how tiny the clothes were. I spoke to a lady who was representing Bliss Baby Charity about the importance of soft fabrics and velcro fastenings on premature baby clothes. The clothes open fully flat so you can dress your baby carefully. This will be in stores from the 17th of November.

The Toddler range (18 months to 6 years) again is full of beautiful brightly coloured clothes with bold prints and designs. There are lots of hoodies, cardigans, dress and tights combos, cool tshirts, jeans and jeggings. Everything you need to keep your little one layered up and warm over the colder months. Archie loved the water resistant puddle jumpsuits that neatly fold into itself to make a backpack.

Dare I mention it, Christmas! The Christmas collection and occasional wear is gorgeous. Lovely Christmas jumpers, Christmas pyjamas and party wear for the big day. The Christmas Moments collection also has the cutest bits for babies first Christmas; Mr and Mrs Claus all in ones, my first Christmas sets and Christmas jumpers. Everything you need to dress your little ones up over the festive period.

Ok, I have saved the best until last! The Fearne by Fearne Cotton Autumn/Winter 18 collection. I just love it! You can really see Fearne’s cool, quirky and bold personality in her designs and I am very jealous that she has adult versions of some of the pieces, especially the leopard print tracksuit!

Her baby range goes from 0-12 months and everything has bold prints and slogans on it. When she introduced her collection to us she said she wanted to get across creativity in children, fun and positivity. You can see just how much thought has been put into the designs and the way in which Fearne spoke about her pieces you could see how proud she is of her collection.

For boys and girls aged 12-7 years the creativity focus comes across in a cute pencil design dress, cool tshirt designs and slogan tees such as ‘Make Create, Ta-Da.’ The collection just oozes ‘cool’ with double denim combos, gender neutral jeans, leopard prints, animal prints and the most gorgeous girls party dresses and fur coats. It’s super trendy!

The collections are available online and instore now. Everything is reasonably priced and so well made. Head to Boots Mini Club now to get everything you need for your little one’s Autumn/Winter wardrobe now. A word of warning though…. Your kids will be way trendier than you!

The Boys Summer Wardrobe From AlexAndAlexa.com

Last month before we went to Rhodes I sat on the AlexAndAlexa.com website and picked out pieces for the boys Summer Wardrobe, like I do every season. Their website is full to the brim of gorgeous designer clothes for boys and girls who like to be on trend.

As Oscar is now 8 and a half he likes to choose his own clothes and takes pride in his appearance and has become aware of designer brands and different styles. We sat together and he picked out some of his favourite pieces, obviously I picked for Archie with him being only 3. I also brought a few bits so in the evenings I cam dress them in matching shirts as I am sure by next year Oscar won’t let me get away with it. Ha Ha!

Alex and Alexa also have a huge sale on at the moment where you can pick up loads of top designer bargains with up to 60% off plus a flash sale with an extra 30% off sale items with the promo code: FLASH30

Swimwear

Oscar loves the Hugo Boss swim shorts and picks the same ones every year. He finds them really comfortable and they dry quickly when out of the pool which is a bonus. He has them in light blue and navy and they are £43 but now in their sale they are £30.10. They come in various different colours and are available from 6 months old.

In the above photo both Oscar and Archie have Ray Ban sunglasses on. Alex and Alexa have a huge range of designer shades to protect your little ones eyes. The full range can be found HERE.

We also got him the Dolce & Gabbana Blue Cartoon Beach Print Swim Shorts that were £135 but in the sale are £101.30. Oscar loved the design of the swim shorts as it reminded him of when we went to the Harrods Grotto at Christmas and all of the windows were dressed in different Dolce & Gabbana cartoons. This season in particular they have some really amazing prints and designs on the kidswear.

Another pair of swim shorts that we get every Summer are the Burberry classic swim shorts. They come in blue, navy and red and have a drawstring waist and the material dries really quickly and they wash as good as new. They are £71 a pair and start at size 6 moths old. These seem very popular as we saw a few children wearing them in the pool on holiday.

For Archie, being smaller I love the Moschino bear design that they have had for the last few years. It is really cute. With that in mind I picked him a pair of Moschino Navy Stripe Sailor Bear Print Swim Shorts which he loves and we got lots of comments around the pool about how cute he looked in them. They are £58 a pair now reduced to £40.60. They also have a drawstring waist and fitted perfectly over his swim nappy.

Archie also has a few pairs of the Ralph Lauren swim shorts and wears these to his swimming lessons at home too. He has them in Navy and they were £35 each and are now £24.50. Again they have the drawstring waist and the Ralph Lauren pony detail on the front of the shorts. (In photo above with Oscar in the Hugo Boss swim shorts).

Oscar lives in sliders on holiday during the day so picked himself some Moschino ones that are white with Moschino written in black they are £57. They have a sweet girls version too.

Day Wear

Oscar has a Burberry T-shirt that he wears to the pool which compliments his Burberry swim shorts nicely. At home he wears them with navy jersey shorts or navy chino shorts if we are out somewhere nice for the day. Burberry have lots of nice designs in their T-shirt range.

We also picked out a couple of Hugo Boss T-shirts. One which was a special edition England one for the World Cup which is a smarter alternative to a football shirt. It was £43 and is now £30.10. Even though the World Cup is over it’s a really smart T-shirt which Oscar will continue to wear. The other was a BOSS Blue Graphic Branded T-Shirt.

For Archie I picked a lovely Kenzo T-shirt there are so many lovely designs which made it hard to pick a favourite. A couple of months ago I got a sneak peek of their Autumn Winter collection and its fantastic, so I am excited for that.

Another gorgeous T-shirt for Archie was from Gucci. The Light Grey Green Short Sleeve Retro Logo T-Shirt is an iconic simple design and looks great with grey or navy shorts. The T-shirt is £120 and Oscar has gone on at me all holiday that he wants one so I will have to order one for him too as I know it will get worn time and time again and go with everything.

Archie also lived in his Boss Navy Branded Jelly Shoes. They are very cute and come in a couple of different shades if blue. They were easy to slip on and off in the day. They were £43 now £32.30. Archie also had a pair of Havaiana Kids flip flops with the strap around the ankle which make it easier for him to walk and run in them. They are £16.

Evening Wear

One thing I really love about being on holiday is getting dressed up every evening to go to dinner. It makes such a nice change. In the evenings the boys tend to wear chino short, I always get them in navy and stone colour. Oscar’s stone coloured ones are Burberry from last Summer but as they have a button adjustable waist so they still fit perfectly.

Oscar choose a Gucci polo shirt, he really liked the coloured collar and choose it completely on his own. The Gucci Navy Pique Polo with Rainbow Knit Collar is a really lovely polo shirt with the gold Gucci bee embossed on one side of the chest. The knitted collar is think and luxurious and I have washed the shirt today and it looks like new and washes really well. The polo shirt is £135. Gucci have lots of lovely polo shirts to choose from with fun designs on them.

Another lovely polo shirt is the BOSS Blue and Grey Colour Block Jersey Polo which isn’t available anymore but there are still lots of BOSS polo’s to choose from.

Both the boys have a Burberry Light Blue Mini Camber Check Shirt each which look lovely with either coloured chino shorts. They were £76 and are now £53.20. They will also wear these in the Winter with jeans as well. They also come in other colours and in a long sleeved design for the colder months.

Archie also has Burberry chino shorts in the navy checked design which he wears with a white linen shirt. This season they are available in a stone colour instead. They have a adjustable button waist so in my experience last a long time. The shorts are in the above photo with Oscar in his BOSS polo shirt.

I got Oscar and Archie matching Lacoste Navy Palm Trees Print Ribbed Collar Polo Shirt which have a fun design on them. I got lots of comments about how lovely they looked matching one another. There is a huge saving on these shirts! They were £55 and are now £27.50.

We had a lovely holiday in Rhodes (we got back at 2am this morning) the washing is done and I am now looking forward to the rest of the Summer holidays which will be full of fun!

Remember all of the above mentioned discounts will be even less once you add the promo code: FLASH30 and save an extra 30%!

The Boys Summer Wardrobes From AlexAndAlexa.com

With only a couple of weeks until we go away to Ibiza, over the last month I have been putting together the boys swimwear, day and evening outfits and making sure I have everything I need for them whilst we are away. So I wanted to show you The Boys Summer Wardrobes From AlexAndAlexa.com.

I have always brought a lot of Oscar and Archie’s clothes from AlexAndAlexa.com as I like buying higher end clothing for them and the service when buying from Alex And Alexa has always been second to none! The boys also both modelled for a collaboration with Stokke and Alex and Alexa a few months ago and the array of boys and girls clothes there for the children to wear were gorgeous!


They sell a huge range of top designer brands such as Burberry, Dolce and Gabbana, Kenzo, Fendi, Hugo Boss and loads more. They also have an amazing sale running at the moment and for a limited time only you can get an extra 15%off the sale using the code AA15!

From the clothes I am about to show you some of them I have brought myself and Alex and Alexa also kindly sent me a few bits for each of the boys as well.

A pair of shorts that Oscar has had for awhile is these lovely blue camouflage ones from Stella McCartney. They go with a lovely crisp white tee or a nice shirt in the evening and are a great pair of shorts to have in his wardrobe as I can team it up with various tops and Oscar will get lots of wear out of them in the evenings on holiday. They are currently reduced from £55 to £41.30 and then don’t forget you can use the extra 15% off code too!


Another pair of shorts that are great to have are a beige pair of chino shorts. There are lots to chose from but my favourite were the Burberry Taupe Chino shorts as they have a great fit and go well with  a smart tee or a lovely shirt, especially a plain linen one. They are reduced from £80 to £64. I’ve put it with the Burberry Blue check pocket tee which I have for both of the boys as I like some of their clothes to be matching. Again it is reduced, from £50 to £40.


I brought a couple of pair of swimming shorts for Oscar as he asked for some ‘big boy’ ones like Daddy and I got the Burberry Bright Blue Check Swim Shorts which you can get in a few different colours and the Hugo Boss BOSS Blue Swim Shorts which again come in other colours too. Both of these are in the sale at the moment and the Burberry ones are £55.30 and the BOSS ones are £36.


For one of Archie’s evening outfits I picked the Burberry Navy Classic Check Shorts which are £56 reduced from £70 and again will go with shirts and tees and he can wear them on a few evenings whilst on holiday with different tops. One of the tees I have got it the Burberry ‘White Use Your Head Beefeater Print Junior Tee’ which I think is really cute. Burberry have some lovely tees this season with fun graphics on them like Thomas the bear and the Full English breakfast Summer tee which are great fun!


I like the boys to match on a few occasions when we are away and having a 5 year age gap between them can often prove difficult to find nice matching items on the high street. With designer clothing this is never really an issue as they have the same pieces in loads of different sizes. I wanted to find a nice evening shirt for them both and absolutely love the Burberry Pale Blue Check Short Sleeve Shirt. There is a range of different colours in this design but I picked the blue as it will go well with the taupe chino shorts that they have. The shirt was £70 and is now reduced to £56. As you can probably tell I am really loving the boys Burberry clothing this season.



I also got a Hugo Boss tee for Archie which is worn a few times already and can be worn in the day or with his chino shorts in the evening. I love the stripes in the bright green and blue and think it is a really great item for his Summer wardrobe which can be put with lots of different shorts or trousers.


As well as the boys having a pair of Havaianas for holiday and some Tom’s Canvas shoes I wanted to get them each a pair of smart trainers for the evening and they will last for the whole Summer into Winter. The Burberry Heacham velcro trainers are to die for and I got a pair of the black ones for Oscar which were £135. They also do them in a gorgeous baby blue colour which I will get for Archie. I did pick Archie up some BOSS jelly sandals last year in the Summer sale and they finally fit him now.



Last but not least, Oscar loves his new baseball caps from Mini Rodini. He has the Light Green Lion Embroidered Cap and the Off White Music cap which are both £26. Then to keep their little eyes protected from the Sun the boys each have a pair of Zoobug Sunglasses which are really funky. Oscar has the Blue Camouflage Round Sunglasses which were £60 and are now reduced to £42 and Archie has the Black and White Clubmaster Baby Sunglasses which were also £60 and are now reduced to £48.



As you can probably guess I absolutely love the AlexandAlexa.com website and wouldn’t shop anywhere else when picking up the boys some designer clothes! I have also had a sneak preview of their Autumn/Winter 2017 collection and it is all totally amazing, so watch out for that going on their website very soon!



 

Oscar & Archie’s Photo Shoot With Stokke & AlexandAlexa.com

We brought our first ever Stokke Tripp Trapp when Oscar was small and then went on to use used it when Archie was born with the newborn seat. I then brought the Stokke Steps as Oscar got annoyed that he had to share his Tripp Trapp with Archie.  In addition to a wide of variety of colours and accessories, Stokke now offers complimentary engraving of the back of their Tripp Trapp chair with your child’s name, adding that extra special personal touch.


I first saw a personalised Tripp Trapp in the flesh last month when Oscar and Archie were both models for the collaboration between Stokke and Alexandalexa.com for Baby London which you can see HERE. Alexandalexa.com sell the most beautiful kids clothes with a huge range of designers on offer. Both Oscar and Archie were kitted out for head to toe in brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Marc Jacobs, Adidas, Bang Bang Copenhagen, Stella McCartney, Tao & Friends, Veja and Zoobug Sunglasses. They both looked so cute!

We had such a fun day and the boys loved being part of the shoot, strutting their stuff and being spoilt by the lovely ladies at Azaria! We got to meet up with some other lovely bloggers/instagramers and their gorgeous children; Jessica from Lilypod & Sweetpea, Chelsea with Harlen and Harlow, Lisa from LeeLee Loves and Becky from Wishes & Wellies.


Stokke then kindly sent each of the boys a personalised Tripp Trapp in the hazy grey colour which matches our kitchen perfectly!  Archie uses his with the baby set and a star print cushion which is so easy to wipe and keep clean and Oscar uses it as a chair at the table, keeping my lovely new chairs clean! 🙂



I love that with the Tripp Trapp they grow with your child starting with the newborn seat, to the highchair using the baby set, to a chair for bigger children and even adults can sit on it too. The great design means it doesn’t look out of place and blends in with our other furniture.


The boys love their personalised Tripp Trapps and using them everyday! The Tripp Trapps are £169 and the engraving is free of charge!

 

 

Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer Review

When Greg asked me in December what I would like for Christmas, the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer was at the top of my list. I had seen some amazing personal reviews and really really wanted one.

On Christmas Day I opened up the wrapping paper to reveal my gorgeous new Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer in the Fuchia/Iron colour combination. It is also available in White/Silver and the Fuchia/Iron limited edition which comes in a special Dyson Supersonic™ Limited Edition Box which is slightly move expensive.

Image result for dyson supersonic

The standard edition retails for £299.99 and the limited edition with the case is £349.99. A lot of people that have asked me about what I think of the hairdryer have always said “but its £300 for a hairdryer!” and “is it worth the money?” Well the answer is yes! I absolutely love the Supersonic and cannot fault it. It drys my hair in literally half of the time as my old Parlux hairdryer, which at the time I thought was an amazing hairdryer. The Supersonic makes an Air flow that travels at 105 mph for quick drying. My hair feels so soft after drying and when I use the smoothing nozzle it leaves my hair looking shiny thanks to the intelligent heat control, super soft and smooth and all I have to do is run my straighteners quickly over the ends. My drying and styling time has been cut easily in half.

The hairdryer itself is small and light to use, its almost as light as a travel hairdryer. It has a sleek and modern design and stands out in the ground! As the motor is in the handle it doesn’t feel top heavy like an ordinary hairdryer and you don’t get arm ache when blowdrying your hair.

While other hairdryers can get too hot, the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer works differently. It measures air temperature 20 times a second, preventing extreme heat damage to help protect natural shine. This also means less breakage which is music to my other half’s ears as he hated it when my hair got everywhere before when I have dried my hair.

The hairdryer has three precise speed settings; Fast drying, Regular drying and Styling and four precise heat settings; 100°C Fast drying and styling, 80°C Regular drying, 60°C Gentle drying, 28°C Constant cold. I use the constant cold for a few seconds when I have finished drying my hair to cool down the hairdryer to put back in it’s box.

In the box you get the hairdryer itself, a smoothing nozzles, a styling nozzle, a diffuser, a non slip mat and a storage hanger. It all packs back neatly in the box for easy storage.

To summarise, this is by far the best hairdryer I have even owned/used! It drys your hair in minutes, keeps it sleek and smooth, protects your hair from damage and looks great too! In my opinion it is worth every penny, especially as it gets used so much!

 

The Stokke Xplory Onyx Black Winter Kit Review

In my opinion the Stokke Xplory is the most unique looking Pushchair on the market and stands out from the crowd. I often get comments about how modern it looks from other Mum’s and it’s defiantly  a much more trendier and fashionable pushchair. So when we were sent the Stokke Xplory Onyx Black Winter Kit I was very excited!

You will have seen in the Summer I jazzed up my sleek black Xplory with the blue Stokke summer kit and now with Winter well and truly here my Stokke is now wearing its Winter kit in Onyx Black. To be honest I hate the cold and Winter is just not for me but with the gorgeous sheepskin fur, the Stokke Onyx Black Winter Kit has certainly given me something to smile about.

As well as looking great it keeps little Archie lovely and warm and the pop on front storm cover keeps him shielded from the cold weather. His little cheeks go so red and sore in the Winter and having the storm cover protecting him from the wind when we are out and about makes it so much better!

Doesn’t Archie Look Cosy?!

Inside the Winter Kit box which as an RRP of £255.00 and comes in three lovely different colours; the Onyx Black, Bronze Brown and Pearl White is the sheepskin fur insulated hood which is just gorgeous, the seat rear textile cover, the sheepskin care brush, the storm cover and a pair of sheepskin lined mittens that attach easily to the handlebar and keeps my hands lovely and warm!

Being able to switch up the look and style of my Stokke Xplory is great fun and with so many kits and colours to choose from there is a style for everyone. I’m always excited to see Stokke’s new style when the new season comes around.

I absolutely love our Stokke Winter kit and the material is so durable and easy to wipe down which means keeping my Xplory clean and looking great is super easy! Especially in the Winter when it’s in my car boot sometimes mud gets on the fabric but as it’s wipeable I use a baby wipe and it looks as good as new!

Having a gorgeous pushchair to look at everyday has certainly made this cold Winter a bit more bearable! Take a look at the Stokke website to see for yourself!

Disclaimer: We were sent the Winter Kit for the purpose of this review. However all opinions are honest and my own and I absolutely love my Xplory and the Stokke Xplory Onyx Black Winter Kit.

Baby Blooms Skincare Gifts Review

Baby Blooms is a brand that I have come across before when I had a baby shower thrown for me when I was pregnant with Archie I was given a gorgeous bouquet of flowers that was made up of bibs and baby grows and two cupcakes that were baby vests. The gifts are so unique and original and look almost to good to use! They make the most gorgeous gifts; hampers, bouquets, nappy cakes, toys and balloons and so much more. It is literally your one stop shop for new baby and new Mum gifts.

When I was recently contacted by them to review one of their gorgeous skincare sets and it came in the most amazing gift box that has been designed and illustrated by Amanda Bradley. The boxes are great to keep your baby memories inside after you have finished using it. Inside my box was the most gorgeous tissue paper wrapped around a organza gift bag that had potpourri attached which made the box smell amazing and inside the bag was a soothing body lotion, replenishing hand cream, rejuvenating facial moisturiser, lip rescue balm and a baby care cream. They all come in gorgeous pots and bottles which are the perfect size to put into your hospital bag or changing bag. Two products I am so pleased I packed into my hospital bag was lip balm and hand cream and used tons of it! They are defiantly a must if you are packing your hospital bag.


This set would make a fantastic baby shower gift or new Mum gift so amongst everything baby Mum can still look and feel great too. All of the products in the Baby Blooms skincare range are handmade and made from natural ingredients and are produced here in the UK.


The replenishing hand cream smells amazing with a refreshing lemongrass scent and contains jojoba which leaves you hands smelling amazing and super soft and moisturised. The hand cream is really light and doesn’t leave your hands feeling tacky afterwards.


The soothing body lotion leaves your skin feeling really soft. After being pregnant for 9 months I have continued to moisturise my skin since having Archie. When I was pregnant I moisturised morning and evening as my skin felt tight and itchy and I wanted to prevent stretch marks. Afterwards I used lots of different body lotions and the Baby Blooms one is by for the most moisturising and the calendula and primrose leave your body smelling amazing.


In the three pots is the lip rescue, baby care cream and the rejuvenating facial moisturiser. They are all 20ml which like I said before are the perfect size for your hospital, changing or handbag. The lip balm leaves your lips feeling soft and nourished and after having a baby your lips can feel so dry so this lip rescue is exactly what you need. Again with the facial moisturiser it is rich and leaves your skin feeling soft and replenished. The baby care cream is fantastic for healing nappy rash, baby eczema and psoriasis. I have also used it on my hands as I get eczema on them now and again and it has helped soothe and repair my skin too.

Baby Blooms make the most fantastic award winning gifts and you can see their full range HERE. I also love their announcement balloons which inside the balloon is a teddy announcing that you are expecting or for a gender reveal. The gifts are truly amazing and you will not be disappointed.

Disclaimer: I was sent the above mentioned box of skincare for the purpose of this review, all opinions are honest and my own. I love them!

Mothercare’s Autumn Winter 2016 Collection

Last Thursday Archie and I headed into London to the Wardof Street gallery in Soho to take a sneak peek of Mothercare’s new Autumn/Winter collection for 2016. This included the newest pieces from the ‘Little Bird’ collection by Jules Oliver and the gorgeous ‘Smile’collection by the world famous designer, Julien Macdonald plus much more and the exciting launch of ‘My K’ clothing range for older boys and girls by the lovely Myleene Klass who also has her baby clothing range ‘Baby K’. It was also a really exciting day for me as my lovely friend Rachel came along with us to film a vlog for me.


When we arrived the windows of the gallery and the interior were decorated in a monochome theme to compliment Myleene’s new range. Myleene was actually there in person when we arrived and we grabbed a quick photo with her and I got to chat with her for a couple of minutes about her new collection. Without a doubt Monochrome is on trend at the moment with most if my Instagram feed full of Monochrome interiors and fashion so I absolutely love the new ‘My K’ collection that has completely embraced the trend and the clothing and shoes are amazing. There were actually quite a few pieces that I would love in adult sizes for me, the sparkly black trainers in particular!


We then looked at the ‘Smile’ collection by Julien Macdonald which is available in 0-2 years, there are so many gorgeous pieces for boys and girls and I absolutely love the collection. I have picked out and ordered a few pieces already for Archie. Here is what I have ordered and a couple of my favourites that I haven’t been able to get in his size yet.


The rest of the Autumn Winter collection has gorgeous leggings, dresses and tops for girls with lovely hats and bags to accessorize with and for boys lovely animal printed joggers, lion jumpers and other animal themed pieces that I know Oscar will love as he loves anything to do with animals. The Peter Rabbit collection is also gorgeous and is available in 0-12 months. The range is in soft greys and with gorgeous little prints on them. The whole collection is perfect for newborn gifts.

We had a great afternoon and as you can see there are some amazing pieces for boys and girls in the Mothercare Autumn Winter collection for this year. Take a look below and the vlog Rachel Mannes from Minifilmz  put together for me. She is absolutely amazing and if you need films with content for your blog/website made for you please drop her an email on minifilmz@outlook.com.

Archie’s Birthday Competition – Day 9, A Chequered Bobble Hat from Blade & Rose

You will love the chequered Bobble Hats from Blade & Rose. The stylish woolly hats are lined with a lovely super-soft fleece to keep newborn babies extra cosy during chilly winter days.  It is defiantly cold out now and these hats would help to protect your little ones from the cold weather. The Bobble Hat features an adorable pom pom on top to complete the snuggly, and fashionable look.  Bobble Hats are on trend this Winter, I have brought an adult version for myself. The range of eye-catching colours include Blue, Red, Purple and Pink which are suitable for babies 0-3 months, 6-12 months and children 1-2 years and 2-5 years.

Blade and Rose is a leading British children’s clothing brand specialising in a trendsetting range of leggings and clothing accessories. Blade & Rose was created whilst designer Amanda was on maternity leave, which ultimately led the company to be named  after her children’s middle name ‘Blade’ and ‘Rose’. Each piece of the collection is unique and has the trademark design on the bum. A major component of the development was to ensure that the quality of the fabric was durable, functional, would wash well and most importantly, that was soft and kind to children’s delicate skin which is exactly what I look for when buying clothes for Oscar and Archie.

Blade and Rose128      issey       

The range of clothes they have are gorgeous and I especially love their leggings that are for baby boys and girls. My favourites at the moment are the pirate, whale and star ones. They look so comfy and snug. They also have tops, bodysuits, tights, bandana bibs, socks along with their hats.
