Playtime

DINTG9

Creating a gorgeous space for my little girl to play has been so important. In a house dominated by brothers and all the endless boys toys throughout the home, Miss O is lucky enough to have her own bedroom filled with her favourite things. She will sit in here for hours on end playing and entertaining herself.

She has chosen most of her toys herself (very expensive taste!!!! apple doesn’t fall far from the tree). From her beautiful collection of crystals, maileg bunnies and her favourite mermaid ‘Lola’ doll from These Little Treasures, she is one very lucky little girl. It’s hard not to spoil this one, being my only girl. She just needs to give me those puppy dog eyes and smile and I’m sold. She has her Daddy completely wrapped around her little finger.

Miss O wears her favourite Butterfly style dress from Dancing in the Grass‘s new collection in the Strawberry Craw print (she also has the most fabulous matching bathers and shorts in this print). This style dress is perfect for playtime.

Play Pouch fromWiggles Piggles

WIGGLE 1

With three children the amount of toys we have is endless!!

So when we found the Play Pouch from Wiggles Piggles, we were ecstatic. No more toy mess or finding endless pieces of Lego throughout the house (you all know what I’m talking about, that shit ends up everywhere). The Play Pouch acts as a wonderful Playmat to create as much mess through creativity as possible. Once complete pull on the drawstrings and voila! All the toys are confined into a pouch. For me in particular this is brilliant. On those days when I don’t have an ounce of energy to clean up every individual toy set, I can now just pull it all together to sort and put away at another time. Leaving our playroom clean and tidy always.

I was blown away with how large the play mat actually was, allowing for our two youngest to play together with ample room to not fight with each other, another plus!

The Play Pouch stores away beautifully, we hang ours on a hook in the playroom so it’s easily accessible for daily use. Another extra bonus is the gorgeous Monochrome design.

This is a must item from Wiggles Piggles. With Winter season fast approaching, you will want to ensure your indoor play areas ready to go.

We love adding new products into our playroom. This space is the most used room in our home, so we love making it a fun and inviting space for our little ones to fully enjoy.

Introducing Mr Sun & Friends, a gorgeous set of 8 handmade wooden dolls from When Harlow Met Jagger.

Never Use Brakes poster print from Freddy Alphabet, basically sums up our Hurricane Harry. I don’t even think he knows what brakes are hahahaha.

Books are a must in our home. We found the most wonderful collection of Books from Home Supply, our favourite being In My Heart by Jo Witek. This book is a must in every home. But you’ll end up wanting every book from this shop!

Message Board and Beta Set from One Two Tree is fun way for the children to make daily sayings or words for the day. Today was Reading Rocks created by Miss O.

Christmas is finally here!

lark-4

11 more sleeps till the big fella arrives!!! This is honestly my favourite time of year and we are getting super excited!

I am usually totally OCD on how the Christmas Tree and decorations are to look in our home, but this year I took a back seat and let our 3 children do all the decorating (took serious amounts of mental control). Perhaps surprisingly, they have completely nailed it. Maybe because I know the older two are starting to hint at the fact that there is no Santa, I am desperate to keep the dream alive for just a few more years. So getting them involved in the Christmas spirit was imperative. 

Just take a look at Miss O’s Star creation and Bas Man’s gorgeous wreath. Hurricane Harry made some of the cutest decorations sitting on the tree, because homemade decorations are the ones I’ll cherish forever.

Our Christmas set up was made perfectly complete with the newest matching Sack Me Santa Sacks and Stockings from Lark Store. Chosen by each child, these fun Sacks and Stockings totally add to the children’s scene they’ve created. Bas man of course went for the Starlight (loves Monochrome just like his Mumma), Miss O went for the Confetti with all bright colours and H man loves to be different choosing the Binky Chambray sack and B-Box Carousel stocking.

My goodness there is so much room to fill in these giant sacks that I must make some last minute dashes to the shops to fill them all up!

I cannot wait for our children to wake up and share all the excitement of Christmas morning. Wishing you all a safe and very joyous Christmas spent with loved ones xxx

Sunny & Hart from Feather & Noise

stripes-6

Introducing the latest collection from Feather & NoiseSunny + Hart‘.

A stunning and fun new Mummy & Daughter matchy matchy collection perfect just in time for the Summer and Festive season. Because what little girl doesn’t want to dress just like Mummy right?

My Miss O is forever wanting to wear my clothes, high heal shoes and all my makeup. So this fun new Feather & Noise collection allows us to now be matching and encourages quality one on one with my girl. At first I was hesitant at wearing a short dress(for all that know me this literally never happens, I live in jeans and long maxi’s 365 days a year!!!), but as soon as I put the dress on Miss O’s face lit up with pure joy and excitement, screaming “Mummy we are just the same.” Seeing her so happy and telling me I look beautiful, gave me so much confidence and happiness. And look how beautiful she looks in her ‘Sunny Dress‘!!

I really am the luckiest Mummy in the world!

Miss O absolutely loves her new dress and being right by my side. We know you’ll love the Sunny & Hart pieces just as much as we do.

Shop the new collection now over at Feather & Noise and you’ll find yourself buying lots more of other stunning pieces from their gorgeous collection, trust me I know!!!

Marbotic from Keld Industries

 

marbotics-2

Looking for something a little more educational based for your children’s christmas present this year? Look no further than Marbotic Smart Letters & Numbers from Keld Industries.

Was super grateful to come across such a wonderful activity from Super Mum @gemmahealymaver , check out her fab Insta page she’s always sharing the best products that you must get, fashion and epic homewares (yes I totally stalk her page weekly for inspo).

We have been very mindful of all 3 of our children using ipads at home, with so many games, apps and access to the internet. It can all became a bit too much. We had got to the point of having to disable access to everything on the ipad except Netflix. We even limit their use to just weekends now and only very small sessions on it. We purposely only have 2 ipads between three children so that have to share. Too much technology cannot be good right!

With our children being very naturally creative the Marbotic wooden letters allows them to develop this talent. The wooden letters allows them to use with or without the ipad to invent their own games or use the apps for a little more structured learning. And we feel this type of learning based technology will only enrich and enhance their learning.

Marbotic implements some Montessori based foundations, making this a great sensorial and visual activity. Beautiful wooden letters that are brightly coloured will entice your little ones to want to use daily. We love that we can sit and finally do an ipad activity together with our children and see them having fun learning and exploring new ways in which to learn.

We love what Marbotic stands for;

M – Manipulation

A – Apps

R- Reading

B – Beautiful

O – Original

T – Technology

I – Imagination

C – Creativity

Marbotic Smart Letters come with 3 free fantastic apps that you easily download on your ipads/tablets. And away you go. Your child will work through the letter activities via sounded instructions.

Make sure you check out our Insta Stories + Snapchat today as Hurricane Harry uses his Smart Letters and get in quick and shop the Marbotic range to get under that Christmas tree this year.

Check you Keld Industries for all your Marbotic’s!
