Last night I was on the starting block for the Elias and Grace Black Friday Sale. My shopping basket was ready and came midnight,I just refreshed the page and all the reductions were applied and considering they were things the minx really needed (except for the sweatshirt which was a treat), I was very happy with the savings I made. I ordered this lovely Sunik sweatshirt with sequins by Bellerose (now down by 30%) which had been on my radar for a while, a pair of Sheepskin boots (also down by 30%) and a pair of Tama jeans from Fingers in The Nose down by 60%. 1.

Here are some photos of Mila I took in France last week before flying to Amsterdam.It was wonderful, we had a gorgeous Indian summer and between rescuing this little chap (briefly called Chocolat), losing him and then getting LOu (love this video!), we enjoyed some wonderful family time at the beach… // Mila wears a skirt from COS and a Bobo choses sweatshirt from Elias & Grace Sharing is caring ❤️ Leave a comment and let’s have a chat… http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/UxVs
Mila inspired this post this morning…She went to school dressed up as an angel for Mardi Gras and she looked very cool. How was your child dressed up today? When I see kids nowadays, I realised how seriously uncool I was back then ;-) Here is a roundup of my favourite ones… 1. Le Dans La inspired by Udder 2. Themis by Ganaelle 3. Ashley, Grace and Romeo 4. Cissy by Michelle Marshall 5 . Limi and Claya by Dee
Gorgeous it was first time around, gorgeous it still is…and I’m talking about the styling my friend Jantine and Vivian from April & May did for the ZARA Baby Collection 2014. The only thing I regret is that sometimes makes that often…the ZARA collections feel a lot like a blank copy of Kids fashion labels which may not have the financial support and overheads that Zara has (and I do love ZARA)….
Each year, Playtime Paris asked 4 artists to interpret a theme to be displayed during the show. This year, the theme was inspired by the arctic regions, explorers’ expeditions and the inuit tribes. Michelle Marshall, who you may be remember from her last venture www.quirkycollective.com, exhibited a stunning series of kids portraits swaddled in fur. Mila wears a head piece from Nixie Clothing which I’ve mentioned here.I have long admired the work of Michelle who has done campaigns for Sun Salt/Saltwalter, La Princesse au Petit Pois, and Chalk magazine. Trained as a Photographer at the University of Derby, French-born, north London based Michelle Marshall has always produced amazing photos of children and has a knack for capturing the magical realms of childhood and creating visual stories. You can view the full exhibition here. // Clothes and accessories were provided by Blackeyewear, Bobo Choses, Lucky Boy Sunday, Nixie Clothing, Óvitar by Gu∂run & Gu∂run, Pale Could, Play is Work, Shampoodle and Waddler Clothing.

Mila and I went to H&M this afternoon to see the All for Children collection H&M launched in Association with Unicef. Oh joy!…the gorgeous £9.99 pink dress I was after and the white coat Mila wanted were still available!!The collection is just amazing…Mila’s new coat looks so beautiful, it reminds me a coat by Dior except that it costs £29.99. If they had done the same for women, I would have bought one for me too.In the end, we got a beautiful skirt matching the coat, a lovely fine-knit jumper with a block pattern and glittery threads in the yarn and as a treat, the Polar bear fur hat & gloves. So I’m now short of £90 but I know that 25% of my money will go to UNICEF and Mila has a few amazing pieces in her wardrobe.I also would like to highlight the beautiful styling and atmosphere of these images done by Les Petits Bohemes and Desaccord for MILK magazine.If your local H&M ran out of stock, you can find this beautiful collection on …
When we were on holiday in France this Summer, I bought a gorgeous, vintage smock dress for Mila. It reminded me the kind of dresses we were wearing when Elodie and I were little.London, 7am:Me: “What do you want to wear this morning?” (knowing the answer)Mila: “A dress!”Me: “Well, why don’t you wear the beautiful dress we got in France?”She puts it on and look herself in the mirror…Mila: “Don’t you think I look like an orphan?”Ok not quite the look I was aiming for but she went ahead with it. This gives me the chance to introduce you La Princesse Au Petit Pois, a beautiful, poetic collection of clothes for children designed by the talended Alexandra Darcissac.All the clothes are made in France and are simply beautiful. My favourite pieces are this gorgeous Notre Coeur dress and the Ilo blouse and the bloomers are just adorable!No chance to look like an orphan with this magnificent collection…in fact, it’s quite the opposite… http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/UxVs
