It's crazy to start thinking about your fall wardrobe when it's so amazingly warm outside, but in this day in age if you don't start making a move on your autumn wardrobe those items you are loving could be gone. So I'm starting to compile a wish list of clothing I would like to see in my wardrobe soon! Here's the start of my list! Happy Wednesday Mamas!!!! kelly xx
After roaming the rows of Bubble I started to make my way towards the exit until I was stopped by one of the agents from Buh Kids. I had passed them on the way in, but didn't stop to have a look. I wasn't sure I would like the brand until she started to explain the concept and their products. I was then very intrigued and found myself really really liking their products. Sometimes you just need to take a few minutes to really have a look at the products. With so many brands to look at it's hard to judge the product by just a quick glance. Specialising in baby sacks, bibs, blankets and push chair covers they combine beautiful printed fabrics with unique designs using 100% cotton on all their products. Produced locally in Madrid, this allows the company to keep control on the quality of their product along with fair working conditions for the workers. I was very keen on the Zuppa Baby Sack, super handy and the Fegato Changing Pad www.buhkids.com
Oliver Bonas we all know it, whether or not you shop there, you know it. Started back in 1993, Oliver decided to open a gift shop after he travels around the world. He wanted a shop that hosted unusual things and hoped for Oliver Bonas to become your one stop shop for all your gift needs. I am very familiar with the shop as I love their candles and I was probably in the shop every other day while on maternity leave. Now you will find me in the Crouch End shop as their Assistant Manager. I took my obsession with the shop to a whole other level. My husband and I are moving into the most amazing flat here in a months time and will need some new things for the flat. So I thought I would start to compile my wish list from Oliver Bonas. Here it is! kelly xx
I had a great opportunity to work along side Nicky Goodman from Little Icons this season. I really learned a lot and very much enjoy the agent side of the industry. We were representing GRO for SS15, let me just say the collection is amazing!!!! But before we get to SS 15 we first need to talk about GRO's AW 14 collection! Staying true to their ballerina silhouettes, soft colours and easy garments, the Autumn/Winter collection has chic written all over it. After working with the brand this season, it is definitely one of my favourites! Let's just hope it's Edith's too!!!! Check out their gorgeous collection here: www.gro.dk
'The idea with the GRO collection was to make a line for girls and boys from newborn to 10 years. To celebrate the life of children, we called the collection GRO which translated means GROW – because every mum and dad know that the most devout time is when our children grow up and we wanted to design clothes for all the children which each day grow.'
CAMP Collection, I've written about the brand previously. Based in San Francisco, designer Tamar Wider creates a brand praising the carefree lifestyle of camping and festival going. From denim maxi's to 70's inspired tees, you'll be the cool one on the camp group this summer. Their collection will take you from camping to glamping!!!!!! After ordering a few pieces from their first collection, Inspiration Point I now have created a wish list for their newest collection Gold Rush. There's not much to say except I want it all!!!!! Shop their new collection here: shopcamp.com/collections/gold-rush-collection Happy Shopping!!!! kelly xx
Music, we all love it! Well I love it and luckily Edith has followed in my footsteps and really enjoys music too. But what do you have your kids listen too? I personally have Edith listen to whatever I'm listening too, but sometimes it's nice to have something just for the little ones. My brother-in-law and his partner have a really amazing taste in music and while they were in Paris last they stopped into the oh so cool Colette and bought little Miss Edith a Colette Kids CD. Colette Paris has a great selection of the latest music and they produce a really cool monthly podcast (I highly recommend downloading it). So if you are looking for a great kids mix check out Colette Kids!

It's crazy to think about winter when we've been blessed with a heatwave here in London. I can't remember the last amazing summer we've had, but what matters now is that we are indeed having an amazing summer. While cooling myself down I've been oohing and ahhing overÍgló&Indí's Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection. As prints are so popular among the mamas and the little ones, their collection hits the mark right on the head. The Icelandic brand's philosophy is simple: To create stylish and beautiful clothing without compromising on comfort and practicality. They also focus on enriching the lives of children with quality products that positively influence the way the look, feel, play and experience their environment. As a mother, this brand has be smiling from ear to ear. Check out their gorgeous collection here. I'll be chatting with the brands designer, Helga Ólafsdóttir on the blog soon. www.igloandindi.com
