Outside the Lines is a new girlswear brand offering a “carefully considered” clothing collection for girls age 3-10.

And considered it is. From the soft muted colours, to the understated luxurious materials, and of course the details. It’s all about the details. The trims, the little twists on wardrobe staples like the Breton top with foil collar, the tutu with a beautifully beaded waistline. Yummy.

Tutu Du Monde – Girls Halloween Collection

Halloween is almost here! And for those of you who find yourself supergluing a misshapen bat wing onto an old gym t-shirt the night before Halloween, this post is a warning to you – be prepared!  Now, I am not criticizing homemade costumes – if you can do it and do it well, I raise my glass to you! But for the rest of us, buying is the only way.

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.

Womens and Girls Rabbit Hairbands for Easter

The Easter feast (er) is almost upon us. I’m in training for it. Every day, I’m eating chocolate. I’m building up my capacity so I can do an entire giant-sized egg on the day. And not want to vomit. I do like to get into the spirit of things. The other thing I like about Easter are all the cutesy wutesy baby fluffy animals associated with it. So let’s talk bunnies. I have something for mummies – admittedly the hipper ones that would not look doxycycline online pharmacy uk like a complete idiot wearing this. I definitely would. And something for the girls. Not exactly bunny but something that definitely makes you look like one…

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!
