With Winter well and truly here in London, I thought it was the perfect time to introduce you to these cosy and stylish kids blankets. I’ve long been a fan of Rafa kids and these blankets are one of their latest offerings. They all come in black, white and grey tones with either a sheep, leopard or dot design. The blankets are big so you and your kiddies can all snuggle under them together. I love this idea of spending long Winter afternoons snuggling under a big blanket while watching a film. Even though I’m not a cold weather person there are some things I love about Winter and big cosy blankets and quilts are definitely one of those things.
With a nearly 5 year old, Zara mini has long been out of my life. Last week I popped in there for old times sake and and I realised how much I miss it. I remember finding some of the cutest baby outfits there and for me they’ve still got the sweetest little baby clothes that I’ve seen on the high street. Even though I can’t shop at Zara Mini anymore, I can’t resist checking them out once in a while.
Here are some beautiful vintage kids rooms to inspire you today. The floral wallpapers, the vintage beds, the little pompoms and garlands all come together to create spaces that are so charming. While I love them all, my favourite is the second one with that gorgeous wallpaper and the almost faded Autumnal colour scheme. Vintage rooms don’t get much prettier than these, don’t you think?
Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm!

If your child is lucky enough to have a granny who knits for them, then you’ll know where I’m coming from when I say that granny knits are just the best. We’re one of the lucky ones as my mum-in-law knits some of the most beautiful sweaters for my daughter. But if you don’t have a granny knitter in the family, Mamy Factory is for you. All the chic clothes are hand-knitted by French grannies with love. The styles are simple and the colours are beautiful with lots of creams, charcoals and dusty pinks on offer. Mamy Factory knit clothes for babies and kids up to 6 years so if you’re in to hand-knits, do check them out.
We love a bit of dressing up fun in this house. It doesn’t have to be Halloween, Christmas or any special occasion but instead it’s something my daughter Anya does daily. The minute she’s back from school the uniform is off and she heads straight for her dressing up box. Each day she emerges wearing something totally quirky and mismatched but she loves it and I love watching her delight in this. So today I wanted to share some dressing up ideas and things that I’m currently loving. My favourite… that little baby in those angel wings and a diaper. Isn’t he the cutest?
Have a fun weekend! And a very happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers.
