Exclusive Kids Fashion Video Interview with Mère Soeur

Have you ever met someone who inspires you and depresses you at the same time? Meet Carrie-Anne Roberts. She’s a beautiful and achingly cool 26 year old mother to an equally gorgeous 18 month old boy called River, who is living her dream thanks to Instagram – having started out on the shop floor of Lush.

In 2015 she created Mère Soeur – a lifestyle brand dedicated to celebrating inspiring mums. Printing T-shirts and tote bags with slogans such as “Raising the Future” or “Mama Gang” we can thank her for putting the some of the sass back into sisterhood.

And finally, after a year of requests, she has created a line for 0-5 year olds. Inspired by her son, and creating clothes she wanted him to wear, the line is playful and cute but still super cool. As she says ” It’s the dream ensemble for a cheeky, curious short one with style.”

So now she is in the world of kids fashion, the time had come for me and my blog pal Anna Cascarina from Little Flea to chat to Carrie-Anne to find out about how it all started for her, how the kids line developed, the #mystory Instagram exhibition she was part of, and then there was an inevitable discussion about breastfeeding that, well, you need to watch.

Exclusive Video Interview with Courtney Adamo

You cannot be a stylish mother and not heard of this woman. One of the founders of the blog and shopping portal Babyccino Kids, Instagram star and mother of probably the four most beautiful children you have ever seen. Oh and she is is gorgeous too. And stylish. Ugh. I have to say that I have tried really, really hard to pick her apart. I N.E.E.D. to hate her. But I can’t. It’s so annoying. She’s really nice.

Exclusive Video Interview Courtney Adamo Babyccino Kids
Here we have Quin (8), Marlow (2), Courtney (young!), Ivy (6) and Easton (10)

So Courtney and her family have lived in London for the last 12 years and have decided to slow their busy lives down, by going on a world tour for a year. Kids have been taken out of school, house has been sold, husband has left his work. They are really doing this. Which, by the way, is another reason for me to want to hate her. But I can’t. Instead, I wanted to know more. So we met for a chat about where they are going, what she’s taking, fussy eaters, favourite shopping haunts, being in a marching band and some exclusive scoops. Check it out….

There you go. I told you she was nice. So make sure you follow her on Instagram to keep up with all her beautiful images of her year of summer, and then look out the window at the howling cold and rain, or finish your fight with your kids over homework and try really, really hard not to hate her. Bye bye for now Courtney, London will miss you!

A Klass Act

Happy new year lovelies! What better way to kick start 2013 stylishly than our EXCLUSIVE interview with Myleene Klass all about motherhood and style. We chatted at the launch she hosted for Mothercare’s new and birth-worthy app.

Myleene Klass Mothercare Exclusive Interview

I didn’t quite know what to expect of her. She is the purest definition of a multi-talent (well…apart from moi..). She sings, is a whizz with the piano and violin, is a model, a designer for Start-Rite shoes, Mothercare, Littlewoods, has a nail-bar in Debenhams, a presenter, an Ambassador, a DJ, a mother….I’m exhausted just writing it – how does she LIVE it? Let’s see….

So you see, pincurls and fame aside – every child likes to smear snot and food all over their parents! Thank you so much Myleene, for being amazing and normal!
