What Cora Wore // Martha and Hepsie

Whilst I am starting to love pretty little dresses, leggings are still the most practical baby clothing and we have recently discovered Martha and Hepsie.  Cora was sent a pair of their Tally tabby cat leggings and they are adorable, fun and easy to wear.

Martha and Hepsie manufacture everything here in the UK which is something we are really keen to support.  The small design team are based in Sheffield and Devon and their online store sells beautiful products from homeware to stationary to their newly launched baby range.  Their three fun designs come in bibs, leggings (up to 18 months) and blankets and I love how unique and well made they are.  



Cora is a baby desperate to move but not quite sure how and these leggings will take her through the next stages as she becomes more mobile.  Whether she crawls, bum shuffles or walks (and we still aren't entirely sure which she will do first) these leggings will be perfect.  I love the Hetties hedgehog print as well which comes in a beautiful blue. 



They currently have free standard postage on the baby range with code 'BABY'

A Spring Weekend

There is something so beautiful about each season and I made the decision when I had children to stop having a favourite, and to appreciate the little things each time the weather changes.  The excitement of snow and frost has gone, Christmas feels like a distant memory and it has all been replaced by blooming flowers popping up everywhere we look, the grass turning a healthier shade of green and that familiar warmth that promises summer is on the way.

I am an outdoor person whatever the weather, but with four small ones some things are just a bit much in the winter.  In the spring it all seems a bit easier, there are so many options, so much to explore and it becomes easier to go out earlier and stay out that little bit later.  

Last weekend in the absense of any plans, we revisited a beautiful local gardens with a museum attached.  We are lucky enough to have lots of local parks, but this one is so clean, dog free and full of things to explore.  I took my camera along to capture some pictures of the bigger boys in their new shoes as Bobux kindly sent us some of their new Kid+ range (they now go up to 7 years!) and I love the images I took.  They capture spring in all it's beautiful glory and the adventures we will be having for the next few months.

The boys love their Bobux shoes because the barefoot soles mean they can really flex their feet as they run and climb.  There are some low hanging branches and trees that are perfect for little adventurers and they kept them entertained for ages.

Inside there is a museum full of animals and artifacts that they love looking at.  The highlight is the interactive room though full of instruments to play and stations to draw at complete with mircrosopes and fancy lights. (If you live locally this is Quex gardens and Museum).  It was a great place to calm down before heading home and there was something for everyone. 




The weather still seems to vary so much daily and there is still plenty of rain but this is what our Spring weekends will look like I hope - full of colour, sunshine and fresh air.

Win // aden + anais

It is just over a week until Mother's Day and aden + anais have offered me a wonderful bundle to give away to a reader.  If you have a little baby then they may struggle to show their appreciation next Sunday so why not treat yourself? I have a set of three muslins and a co-ordinated layette to give away this week and these muslins are perfect for use as a scarf for Mum if you don't want to keep them for baby.

I am a huge fan of aden + anais muslins, they are so soft and wash really well and I had never thought of using one as a scarf before, but I am totally going to be pinching this idea now! Cora has one of their muslin sleepsuits and it looks so comfy and cute - I am a little jealous that I am giving this one away and not keeping it for her!  The layette is available in 0-3, 3-6, 6-9 or 9-12 months.

The swaddle pack retails at £38.95 and the layette is £23



To be in with a chance to win this bundle, then follow the instructions on the rafflecopter below.  I will announce the winner on Mother's Day.

What the Kids Wore // Tootsa MacGinty

We have a beach just a few minutes walk from our front door and many others really close, but we love to hop on the train sometimes and head to Whitstable as instead of sand they have a pebble beach.  The boys love finding shells, skimming stones and exploring somewhere a bit different, and I love wondering along the sea front past the stalls selling fresh oysters and prawns.

Tootsa MacGinty, one of our favourite ethical brands have just launched their new collection and one of my favourite items was the Peru jumper.  It comes in four different designs that look amazing together and seperately and works perfectly for my four children.  Tootsa create clothes for children and their unisex designs are colourful and fun as well as beautifully made and long lasting.  Everything we have had from them has washed so well and Cora has lots of Tootsa to grow into from her brothers!

I took some photos last weekend whilst we were enjoying the early Spring sunshine at the beach.  The children look so perfectly co-ordinated without being matching and the vibrant colours really stand out. The whole range is really imaginative and playful and all the jersey wear is organic cotton.

The boys all love their jumpers and it has opened up lots of conversations about animals and the rainforests too.  These are ideal for layering and will last us through the spring and the British summer too.

The sizing on these is quite true, however if you are trying to decide between two sizes I would definitely recommend sizing up. (Cora (8m) is in 6-12 months, Finn (2) is in 2-3, Archie (4) is wearing 5-6 and Dylan (5.5) is in 6-7).

Thank you to Tootsa for sending us the perfect Spring jumpers!

Holiday Wardrobe Must-Haves



Inspired by Mark Warner's competition to be an ambassador, I have spent my evening putting together a mood board of Cora and Finn's must have holiday wardrobes.  I love all the bright styles, there is some subtle twinning in there and lots of our favourite brands are featuring.  I used Polyvore to pull it all together and the quality of the pictures isn't great but each individual picture underneath links to the item.

If we were to win the chance to represent Mark Warner one of the first things I would be doing is shopping for the perfect summer clothing for all four children, especially the youngest two who have less of a say in what they wear!

So here are my picks for Finn - he will be 2.5 this summer so it is our last chance for little rompers and dungarees!



Finn's dream holiday wardrobe





And here are my choices for Cora - little rompers and sweet summer dresses.  She will turn one at the end of June so I imagine she will start walking around then!


Cora's dream holiday wardrobe




I have had so much fun planning their holiday wardrobe must-haves! Have you started shopping for summer clothes yet?
