LIFE WITH MILA | THE BUG

July 13, 2016

Life with Mila the bugSteve and I have been feeling low in energy these past few days…

Me: “I’m drained”
Steve: “So am I”
Me: “Do you think we’re fighting something?”
Mila: “I’m good!”
Steve: “Yes a bug called Mila”
Mila: “It’s the best bug in the world!!” (silence from both of us) She carries on…“Let’s go with that!”

 Mila wears a sweatshirt I got from Topshop a few years ago. Here are few of my favourite sweatshirts currently available

Life with Mila | Shopping

Me: “For your birthday, we can have a girls day and go shopping if you want”
Mila: ” oh great! Can it be unlimited credit?”
Me: “errm non….”

Mila turned 11 a a couple of weeks ago. As we were staying with some friends near Cap-Breton, we went shopping in Hossegor. I’m sure if you are mums of pre-teens you’re going through the same thing than me but the days of having fun buying clothes for my daughter are **OVER**!
I used to be able to buy her and most importantly dress her, in gorgeous Liberty print dresses and blouses with smocks but now the sole mention of a dress and she looks at me in disbelief if I was completely mad.
I’m not mad, I keep hoping that she will change her mind :-))))

Saying that, we found a middle ground…
Last Summer, we had paid a visit to a shop in Hossegor (forgot the name sorry!) where the lady was a bit pushy but she had a great selection of my favourite brands Finger in the Nose, April Showers, Bobo Choses and Maan. We had bought a couple of soft t-shirts from Bellerose, which became Mila’s favourites. This time, we both fell in love with the Louise Misha CollectionREAD MORE...
