Spun Candy is Kids Birthday Party Heaven

So every year, I make a huge thing about my girls’ birthday party. Maybe in a past life, I was a party organiser? And maybe in this current one, just sad. Either way, we have done Rainbow, Disco, Spa, Fashion and many more. We are just not ‘limp-sandwiches-in-church-hall’ people.

So now at 9 years old – what to do? Well, I figured if it involves sugar – not much else matters. So we decided the kids would make lollipops at Spun Candy. Not just tut ones though – I’m talking “I-can’t-believe-a-kid-made-that’ ones, and plenty of them.

Spun Candy is a store and kitchen where expert candy confectioners boil the sugar in front of your eyes adding only natural flavourings and colourings to bring the candy to life and create beautiful sweets and lollipops. Look…

B.I.G.

Today in celebration of our very own birthday, I’m going to share how to do a rocking Fashionista Party.

A Party Fit for a Prince

Happy birthday to Prince George who is turning one on July 22nd. I decided not to write up what presents we can get him – frankly all he needs in my opinion is a good pair of skinny jeans, a hoodie and some funking high tops. This whole twee look is not doing it for me. Sorry. Please don’t chop my head off.
