Well for once Littlelish is bang on trend. It is all about the pink this Autumn / Winter and I for one definitely fancy getting myself warm and cosy in a soft dusky pink scarf. But apparently we’ve got some warmer weather this weekend to enjoy before the Autumn really sets in.

So come rain or shine take inspiration from my daughter the Queen of pink (she would only wear pink if it was up to her!). I’ve been browsing through the beautiful AlexandAlexa for inspiration and have pulled out some of my favourite pink things with my gorgoeus Littlelish in mind.

1. Fuscia Hunter wellies

I am loving the kids Hunter wellies, I didn’t even know they made childrens ones and now I may need to buy them. They have some other absolutely beautiful designer shoes for little kids feet over on their site :)

2. Angel’s face skirt

Littlelish has had one of the Angel’s face skirts since she was 2 and she still loves it, it doesn’t really fit her anymore and has been relegated to the dressing up box but it is still her favourite item of clothing, EVER.

3. Heart print cardigan by Kickle

This sweet heart print cardigan is 100% cotton. I think Littlelish would think this is the perfect happy go lucky cardigan to wear with everything!

4. Molo sunglasses

Pink with stars and polka dot, need I say more?

5. Cute little umbrella by Vilac

How sweet is this brolly with its little mouse head handle. Oooh and teamed up with the Hunter wellies, now that couldn’t fail to brighten up a rainy day.

So now I’ve put together my wish list I am off to enter the Competition at AlexandAlexa where you can win £1000 worth of clothes for your little one – yes pleeeeease!



Morning all, well it’s been quite a while since I’ve run a competition but here I am with an awesome one this morning. Zinio have provided me with 10 digital magazine subscriptions to giveaway and with over 5500 titles you may have a hard time choosing!

Zinio offers the chance to buy subscriptions or single editions of all the magazines we know and love here in the UK, but what’s more they also have magazines from all over the world. So you can read whatever publication you’d like on whatever device you like, iPad, iPhone, Android phone, tablets, laptop or desktop wherever you are (as long as you have access to the internet of course!). It is like the worlds biggest newsagents right at your finger tips, no wonder they have won so many awards!


I LOVE magazines, I find them a great source of inspiration, especially as a creative / blogger it is so important to know what is going on out there! Whatever kind of magazines you are into there is something for you, health, fashion, parenting, garde, the list goes on! I particularly love reading magazines about trends, which comes from my obsession with magazines when I did my styling education, I spent a small fortune on magazines like Frame and Wallpaper. I love photography, trend spotting and all things home and interior and as I was allowed to keep one of the prizes for myself I decided to try out a subscription to Architectural Digest which is one of the ones I used to love so I know I will be able to use it as a great source of inspiration over the next coming months.

All you need to do is enter your details into the rafflecopter below to be in with a chance to win. There are 9 subscriptions available now that I pinched one ;) Please note: All subscription lengths vary, you will need to check out the publication on Zinio to see how many magazines are in the subscription bundle.

Happy reading everyone!

TK Maxx is my go to shop, for everything. I need a new dress to go out in – TK Maxx, I need a new work outfit – TK Maxx, I want a new handbag/sunglasses/frying pan/rug – TK Maxx.

I also love the afforable, original, designery stuff they do for kids. So when TK Maxx offered me an £100 voucher to spend on some new summery clothes for Littlelish we let out a huge WHOOP! Let me tell you what I discovered – £100 goes really, really far…


I don’t know about you but I find it really easy to shop in TK Maxx. Rather than fall in love with a dress, sifting through the sizes to discover age 4 (or in my case size 14) is sold out…. The age ranges are all on the same rail so you know you needn’t look anywhere other than the 4 years old rail / coloured hangers for your selection.


And so we began sifting through many a gorgeous outfit. Littlelish was of course over the moon to be able to choose her new purchases and wanted to buy the entire rack. I explained to her we really did need to cut the pile down which wasn’t too well received but I managed to persuade her by letting her mostly choose her own dresses (normally a bit of a no-go as she has really rather quirky read – hideous taste). I drew the line at the bridesmaids dress but the other dresses she picked out were all very sweet (luckily you can’t go too wrong at TK Maxx).


We didn’t do any trying on. Does anyone ever do trying on with a 3 year old? It seems like my idea of hell! We made it home, happily with 3 pairs of shoes, 6 dresses and 2 tops, practically her entire summer wardrobe! What do you think of our buys? I am a little in love with the Stella MacCartney mushroom tshirt, the gorgeous green dress from Strawberry Faire and the blue Oilily dress that is just so pretty! What have you bought this summer at TKMaxx? x
