And fashion is of course on the bandwagon.

A Spoonful of Sugar..

We give our kids healthy treats. They don’t drink fizzy drinks, they don’t eat chocolate or sweets – only dried fruit. We are good mothers.

Or are we? Actually, we are not according to a brilliant film ‘That Sugar Film’ by Damon Gameau. Join me on Saturday November 7th at the next Smart Thinking For Kids UrbanExplorer event for all the family. The film will be screened and discussed in a Q&A with not only the director himself, but also a panel of experts including the sickeningly healthy looking and beautiful sisters from Hemsley + Hemsley, Merrilees Parker and others.

The film is a documentary about one man’s journey to discover the bitter truth about sugar. Damon Gameau embarks on a unique experiment to document the effects of a high sugar diet on a healthy body, consuming only foods that are commonly perceived as ‘healthy’. Through this entertaining and informative journey, Damon highlights some of the issues that plague the sugar industry, and where sugar lurks on supermarket shelves.

Happy May the 5th. The Tuesday that feels like a Monday, that is so depressing after a lovely, long weekend. However – I’m here to cheer you up! Star Wars fever is building! The new trailer is out. It’s…well, I suppose super exciting to those people who love Star Wars. But whatever. What I’m super excited about, is that as of yesterday – May 4th, Star Wars Day – the amazing – and let me tell you when I say amazing – I MEAN it – Courage and Kind Star Wars collection launched in Harrods.

Star Wars Harrods Disney Kids Fashion (14)

Now I am a mother of girls. I’m happy that way. Happy in our pink, glittery universe. Except – when I went to the launch of Courage and Kind – a brilliant new brand in association with Disney.

Now, I had low expectations naturellement – I mean has anyone ever seen stylish licensed clothing??? Anyhow, I went to the launch to see their first two collections – one for Cinderella and one for Star Wars – and the Star Wars one in particular – blew me into style orbit. And then made me pine for a boy! Look….

Cinderella-ella-ella

Cinderella is how I feel in my house sometimes. We replace the wicked step-mother with the busy husband, and the ugly sisters with my naughty twins and BOOM – I’m Cinders. Everyone’s go-to slave. But I digress…

CINDERELLA

Unless you have been living under some stone – you will know that Disney have been very busy creating a brand new live-action feature inspired by the classic fairytale, “Cinderella” starring Cate Blanchett as the evil step mother. Here she is at the Premiere. Clearly in nice actress mode.
