What the Boys Wore // Five Boys Clothing

Hooray for half term, it couldn't have come soon enough!  The boys were starting to get so tired from school and preschool and they really miss each other too so a week off of school, a week where we don't have to leave the house before 9 am each day, a week where they can play together as much as they like and a week to enjoy the sunshine is very well timed.  We started it off by collecting Dylan from school at 3:15 on Friday and heading straight down to the beach.

Knowing that a whole week of freedom stretched ahead of us meant I didn't mind if we stayed out a little later, if they had fish and chips for dinner or if they waded a little too far into the sea.  It was lovely spending the late afternoon building sandcastles, collecting rocks and enjoying the glorious weather.

The big boys had been sent some lovely tees from Five Boys Clothing featuring cheetahs (they are really interested in how fast animals can run after our day at the zoo this month so they were a big hit).  Five Boys teamed up with a  young designer, Bronte Adam

to create a range of t-shirts for kids aged 3-11 to raise awareness of conservation and support endangered species.  These tees are made from organic cotton and £1 from each sale goes to ARKive.  They are the perfect weight for summer, light and airy and the designs are brilliant and bright.

We met friends and shared fish and chips crowded around our picnic blanket.  The boys ran barefoot, chasing the waves and running back out in delight and Cora was mostly content inside her UV protective tent (which is good as I think she has her Daddy's pale skin).  We stayed out until all four were exhausted and we went home ready for bed.

Our bank holiday weekend has been busy, we have been outdoors for nearly all of it and we are looking forward to the rest of half term, more beach days, more sunshine and plenty of ice cream to keep us cool.

What the Kids Wore // Ubang Babblechat

I love dressing my children a little different, picking things that their friends aren't wearing, shopping small from independent retailers and finding fun new brands that inspire our imaginations.  We have been working with one of them over on instagram this Spring and I am loving their cute designs.


Ubang Babblechat makes child friendly clothing, everything is comfy and bright, the designs often have something really unique, a little star that pops out a pocket, lion manes around the neck, a long elephant sleeve.  We were sent a few pieces and I love these t-shirts for the little two.  



They look so cute together, but each t-shirt is really unique too.  I chose quite a few co-ordinated bits for the little two and the big two and I love how well Ubang cater for that.  You can buy matching shorts for these t-shirts (which Finn has but it wasn't quite warm enough for) as well as vests, rompers and trousers in the same prints.  The whole collection works really well together and we have been so impressed with how well it washes and keeps its shape.



Ubang Babblechat are known for their crazy and colourful socks too and we are huge fans.  If you want socks that can be shown off and that make a statement then check them out!

All the clothes are ethically made in factories that do not employ children and are made from organic fabric and Oeko - Tex 100 certified.  The Danish company  is committed to making fun and playful clothes that do not restrict children, but encourage their adventures.  Their ranges start at 3 months and go up to 8 years.  The sizing is pretty true (Cora wears a mix of age 9 months and age 12 months and is an average 10 month old, Finn is a petite 2 year old and wears some age 18m and some 24 months, Archie is an average 4 year old in 4-6 and Dylan is a very tall 5 year old in 6-8 years.





If you pop over to my instagram you will see plenty more of the SS17 collection . . .

What the Baby Wore // From Babies with Love

As soon as that crisp winter chill disappeared, we have been down at the beach.  Often still wrapped  up in coats and hats or at least keeping warm in multiple layers, we have been making the most of the sunshine and the sand.   Cora is fascinated by the sand, and loves searching out small stones that I have to quickly remove from her before they make it to her mouth.


From Babies with Love is one of our favourite ethical companies who support orphaned and abandoned children through the sale of their clothes.  They sent us this beautiful crab babygrow which of course felt perfect for a spring beach outing.

Their clothing is made from the softest organic cotton  and is so unisex that it makes a wonderful new baby gift.  


On the FBWL website you can see exactly where the money is going through an interactive map. You can see whether your support is giving a child access to an education, keeping children off the street or helping abandoned babies find a home.  All the garments are made in fair trade factories that have banned child labour and every part of the process from cotton to your child is ethical.


From Babies with Love have a great range including clothing, blankets and toys and the characters are sweet and so unisex.  Check out the From Babies With Love website to read more stories and shop the new collection.

What the Kids Wore // Geggamoja

Geggamoja is a brand that I hadn't heard of until very recently, but we have been won over by their gorgeous colours, simple styles and comfy pieces.  We were sent a few items from their newest collection and I just love this pink vest on Cora.

I was adamant in pregnancy that I wouldn't be dressing my little girl in pink, but it turns out she looks pretty cute in it, and I love this shade.  The vest is simple but beautifully made, soft and stretchy and a great fit.  It goes so well with so many of her clothes that it is quickly becoming one of her most worn items! 


Many of the pieces in their extensive collection are designed to mix and match, with common colours running through.  This hat mixes the pink with a brighter pink and you can buy matching trousers and tops too, as well as the same design in different colours (perfect for twinning siblings!).  I find the sizing pretty accurate - Cora is wearing age 3-6 months here at 5 months old.

I was also sent a couple of items for Archie but so far I haven't managed to get any good shots of him - I will update when I do! Geggamoja make clothing for newborns up to age 12 and they also do a collection of home bits and accessories.  I was sent some gorgeous bunting perfect for a nursery, soft muslins and a toy for Cora which she has become quite attached to. The colourful teddy is perfect for a newborn to snuggle up with (and chew).
