Cotton On KIDS + Free By Cotton On Gets Active

IMG_2681

Cotton on KIDS + Free by Cotton On have launched their latest Activewear Collection!

The range comprises of leggings, tees, shorts, shoes and accessories and these all come in an assortment of bright of colours for girls and pantone’s for the boys. True to its name, the Activewear Collection is perfect for your children to get active. The fabric and style of the garments, provides the type of free range of motion required for the busy child. The real beauty lies in the fact that style has not been compromised at all for the functionality and practicality of these clothes. Further, this range of fabulous products is not just for the little ones, as it extends through to teens which is such an important age to encourage a healthy lifestyle and being active every day.

Our little ones cannot get enough of their new leggings. We literally had to pry off our Miss O leggings when she was in bed asleep she loves them that much. Perfect for the current cooler months, the active leggings matched back with the batwing jacket ensure we can still get outside. Oh, and don’t worry, the range has your feet covered too with Retro Trainers which are all kinds of WOW! Doubly WOW is the fact that her new runners glow in the dark!

Hurricane Harry as the youngest boy in the house just adores and aspires to be like his big bro and Daddy. The look on his face was priceless when he first donned his tights and running shorts!!!!

Bas-man headed straight down to our local football oval to practise his footy skills and goal kicking, showing off his new activewear to all the locals (as you do at 10yrs old). May we add that the teen range is totally on point and that little more edgier with bold colours and fun styles. It’s been given a huge thumbs up by our Bas-man.

We love to promote a healthy lifestyle to our children and that’s about educating them to make the right choices. Sounds great in theory but its easier said than done, so when CottonOn releases a product that encourages kids to get outdoors and be active, we think it deserves an applause. This range gives them so much excitement of finally being able to look and feel athletic whilst doing what they love outdoors!

If you don’t already, follow our journey on Snapchat minibots_ls where you’ll catch our 3 getting active on a daily basis.

Be sure to get Active and head to Cotton on KIDS + Free by Cotton On to shop the full range, where Little Teams Dream Big!

Tots and Mor

IMG_2547

Thrilled to have come across gorgeous store Tots and Mor for children. Their gorgeous selection is perfect for our Miss O and making any girl look sweet and angelic. We went for the divine “RUFFLE T-SHIRT” in pink. The detailing of the frilled neckline makes wonderful winter layer and perfect for every little girls wardrobe. We matched back with a favourite skirt or pinafore dress which perfectly accentuates this wonderful Tee. We love adorable pieces for our girl and we know this piece will be a regular outfit for her this season. The “RUFFLE T-SHIRT” comes in the beautiful tones of Ivory, Pink and Grey and is available in sizes 1 through to 7.

We caught up with the lovely Morgan from Tots and Mor;

Tots And Mor began in April 2016. It came about after the birth of my first daughter Arianna. She is what has fuelled my passion for children’s fashion, along with also wanting to be able to make a contribution to the family whilst being a stay at home mum. Originally from North Queensland, my now husband got an opportunity to move to Sydney for work back in 2009.

I love to see all of the customer love on social media! Our customers are just the best and incredibly cute. Currently I am working on our very own label which is our next step. This is very exciting and also very daunting. I can’t wait to share this with everyone!!

We cannot wait to see what’s next from Tots and Mor, in the meantime make sure you follow their journey on Instagram and shop all their gorgeous range online www.totsandmor.com.au as we know you’ll love as much as we do!

Our love is Crystal clear

IMG_2527

This weekend I spent a gorgeous Mummy + Daughter day with Miss O. She had asked this past week if I would take her to a Crystal shop. It was a very unexpected request and after seeing many friends on Instagram + Snapchat featuring crystals lately, I thought it was maybe a sign that I take her. Maybe a higher power is sending me a message!

What a gorgeous outing it was together! She was so happy and loved looking and choosing the crystals she wished to buy. She even chose some special ones for me (she handed me 2 crystals that were to give me happiness and 1 self confidence). When handing them to me she told me that they would make me special. She really is a very special, kind, giving and loving girl. She definitely knows me better than most, she has always been my healer from the minute I conceived her.

She listened to every word the lovely ladies at the shop spoke to her, with eyes wide open and to see the smile on her face was beautiful.

Once we got home she couldn’t wait to get place her crystals on her plate and read the little cards explaining their meaning. She proceeded to give the entire family a lesson on crystals and explaining that we must cleanse and re charge them in the full moon! Needless to say, her brothers were not so interested! I sat with her for hours just listening to her chat away, taking in everything she had to say.

I was actually quite blown away with the ones she chose. One was to help with respiratory, lung and gut health, another concentration, study and self confidence. Her favourite is of course Rose Quartz, the love stone, and she has an abundance of love!

I know we will have many more visits the Crystal shop together, I highly recommend this girly outing together.

Miss O wears Paper Wings Unicorn Dress which is rather fitting given the occasion!!

Little Pushkin

IMG_2326

Introducing Little Pushkin … a new brand that incorporates art and unique designs into their clothing range for children 0-10 years of age.

Little Pushkin delivers great quality clothing and designs that are sure to please the most astute child! Carefully designed and colourful, there is a garment for all children. In our home, we love clothing that allows our children to stand out in a crowd whilst also matching their unique characters.

Our Miss O had a lot of fun modelling her Forget Me Not dress. The Forget Me Not dress is made from 100% organic Japanese cotton with a kimono loose fit style with a pop of pink featured on the dress. The loose fit style is great for our little Miss and any child who is active and likes being comfortable.

As for our Bas-Man, the Sleeping Fox long sleeve tee is perfect. Again made from 100% organic cotton, this style is soft and is easily wearable for very active boys and carefully designed. With sizes running up to 10yrs, this brand caters for all 3 of our children of different ages and is a definite winner.

We caught up with the crew behind Little Pushkin for some insight on their wonderful brand and its origins:

Little Pushkin is a fun new fashion brand for children from 0 to 10 years old. It was born in Bangkok, discussed in Tokyo, thought and fought over in Shanghai, designed in Milan, worn and hoorayed by our little fans in Moscow. Little Pushkin believes that we never really grow up, carried through life on the winds of desire, singing songs of our childhood dreams. Little Pushkin is about little children in us and adult wisdom in them, so we create clothes merging the traditional baby-parent border, disrupting the limitations, rethinking the shapes, silhouettes, traditional colours usually offered to children. True bits of fashion in tiny packages.

Little Pushkin is about giving the best to our children and making sure that’s not just words. Creating clothes that our children would love to wear and clothes that last longer than a fashion season. Introducing children to art and fashion we admire, give them something unique, so the prints and colours are carefully elaborated and worked through, collaborations are discussed and new talented designers introduced.

We also care about trillion other things that brought upon every parent by watching their children grow – joy of the simple things, warmth of a smile on a cloudy day, comfort of a hug, poetry of a family get-togethers, days when you just roll out of bed in the morning, throw on a piece of clothing and go, run, do that thing. We love that, it’s on our mind too when we work on each collection that come to life.

Inspire and be inspired, that makes this journey much more fun.

We know you’ll love this new brand, head to Little Pushkin now!
