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.

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…

Lets go!

Little Lulubel

So another year – another birthday party. This year – the girls (lord help me for the future) asked for a pamper party.

One decision I made last year after going (online) around the world, driving myself mad to get cool plates, going home presents etc – was to go to a party store that can get the whole lot for me. So I can have my feet up and feel pampered myself!

Enter Little Lulubel, a one stop party store online to take away the stress of kids’ party planning. They have put together a selection of well designed, co-ordinated and stylish party kits to choose from and it’s all just a click away.
