Top 5 Stylish Kids Coat Hooks

Winter’s approaching and that means changes in the house…it’s not just ALL about being cold but also about being prepared for the winter months ahead. Of course the seasonal wardrobe change over must occur…flip flops out and warm jumpers in, heating goes on and the slippers come out etc. But that also means that ANY DAY NOW my kids’ winter coats will appear in a heap at the bottom of the stairs or if I am lucky slung over the bannisters. So here’s the plan…I’m taking a more mature approach to this yearly battle of ‘hang up your coat’ by investing in a stylish coat hook or 20!

Here are my top 5:

Petit Tresors – Girls French Personalised Jewellery

My dad is a jeweller. I grew up around diamonds, rubies and emeralds. I know about the best cut, clarity – the lot. But the truth is, I wear nothing. It guts my dad. But I am just not into jewellery. Less, is more.

My girls, on the other hand are veritable Pat Butchers’. The more, the merrier – the more garish, the better. Oh they do love a free piece of jewellery tut that adorns magazines like Cute Fluffy Pet Weekly or Teenage Bitch from Hell – or whatever they read these days. Now this guts me. So trashy. Ugh.

So when they were offered a bracelet for their birthday I was worried. Very worried. Until I saw this brand.

I’ll Give You The Slipper

It’s cold. It’s dark. Winter illnesses are penetrating the super sterile force-field I have tried to build around my house. I need to feel warm. I need to feel comfy. I need valium. Maybe I need to sell my kids? Sorry, I drifted off. Where was I. Oh yes, when the nights are long, cold and dark, we need comfort. And our kids do too. I’m talking hot chocolates, a crackling fireplace, lovely loungewear, and of course, the finishing touch, a great pair of slippers. Stylish ones bien sur. So how excited was I to discover this fab new brand A.Andreassen and doubly so, as we have two pairs to give away!
