ISSA Mikro Baby Toothbrush Giveaway

Getting young kids to brush their teeth is not easy. Getting young kids to do A.N.Y.T.H.I.N.G. is not easy – apart from screaming, keeping us up at night, waking us at ungodly hours and endlessly pooing, of course.

Having to brush their teeth for them is another not very easy parental task, a firm hand on the jaw is often needed to keep them from wiggling away. Lucky for us FOREO has launched the ISSA Mikro baby toothbrush for youngsters between the ages of 0 and 4. Even luckier for us they are extremely stylish and colourful.

Exclusive Kids Fashion Video Interview with Mère Soeur

Have you ever met someone who inspires you and depresses you at the same time? Meet Carrie-Anne Roberts. She’s a beautiful and achingly cool 26 year old mother to an equally gorgeous 18 month old boy called River, who is living her dream thanks to Instagram – having started out on the shop floor of Lush.

In 2015 she created Mère Soeur – a lifestyle brand dedicated to celebrating inspiring mums. Printing T-shirts and tote bags with slogans such as “Raising the Future” or “Mama Gang” we can thank her for putting the some of the sass back into sisterhood.

And finally, after a year of requests, she has created a line for 0-5 year olds. Inspired by her son, and creating clothes she wanted him to wear, the line is playful and cute but still super cool. As she says ” It’s the dream ensemble for a cheeky, curious short one with style.”

So now she is in the world of kids fashion, the time had come for me and my blog pal Anna Cascarina from Little Flea to chat to Carrie-Anne to find out about how it all started for her, how the kids line developed, the #mystory Instagram exhibition she was part of, and then there was an inevitable discussion about breastfeeding that, well, you need to watch.
