It’s that time of year when the weddings, christenings and special occasions start to pop up on the calender and I often get asked if I have seen any smarter items for the boys. How gorgeous is this suit. Bobby would look super dapper in it and all pieces could be worn as seperates afterwards. The jacket would look just as beautiful with jeans. Below are some more of my favourites.

Swimwear, I love a swimsuit, Daisy loves a bikini! So we have to negotiate and usually Daisy wins. I do love just bikini bottoms but I think she is getting a little big for this now. There are some beauties around this year though so maybe I’ll win her over. This one I saw in store last week and it was very cute, and this bikini I think is cool for the bigger girls. below are some more of my favourites.

Easter ideas…

Easter Garland Kit

I love Easter, I think it has to be one of my favourite holidays. The beginnings of new life are starting to show everywhere, from the daffodils, to the crocuses, to the  chicks and the lambs, I just really enjoy it. I love to decorate the house with lots of easter items (many made by Daisy and Bobby) and as the kids get so many easter eggs on Easter Sunday I like to look around for alternative fabulous pressies that I know they will enjoy. I have searched the shops and internet so you don’t have to.

A boys jacket…

998-658s

Denim Jacket £9.

It was dress down day at school for Daisy and Bobby on Tuesday and Bobby chose his outfit himself. When he came downstairs he had a jacket on very similar to this one that I had totally forgotten about! It was age 4-5 but with the sleeves rolled up still looked totally cool and he said he was too warm in his big coat and didn’t want a rain coat on. This got me thinking about cool coats for now. This one is fab, as is this one, this is now a fab price in the sale as is this one. Below are some others that I think look fabulous.

When I say Daisy and I love a playsuit, I can not emphasise enough how much we love them. I love them because of how cute they look, Daisy loves them because of how comfortable and practical they are, (she can do cartwheels and handstands without showing her knickers). Next are on a roll this year and have some absolutely fabulous ones in, even for the bigger girls, so I have rounded up my favourites.

Mabel Child…

FullSizeRender(9)
I am very excited to introduce you to Uzma, who runs the magnificent on-line boutique Mabel Child. Every single item on her site is a dream. I was trying to find my favourite pieces to share with you but I honestly loved every item. Uzma chooses each piece herself and has exquisite taste, with many of my favourite designers being included (Louise Misha, Milou and Pilou, Kalinka, Maileg and Hubble and Duke). I had the honour of meeting Uzma at the Shop Up event just before Christmas and she was truly lovely. Very chatty and helpful as I oohed and aahed over everything! Here she tells us a bit more about herself.
1. When and how did you 1st come up with the idea of Mabel Child?
Prior to getting married and having a family, I worked as a freelance fashion designer. I designed and styled clothing for women. However, I decided to stop working and focus on raising my family. When my first daughter was born, I became obsessed  with buying children’s clothes, although my husband was not amused! I love buying independent brands and it was at this time that the idea came to me to establish my own business. Mabel Child was established shortly after my third child was born.
2. What were you doing before Mabel Child?
I was a full time mum and I still am! I juggle the school-run, housework and running my business.

3. How do you juggle family life with working at Mabel Child?  Any tips for my reader.
It can be very stressful being a full-time mum and running my business, Mabel Child. I check my emails when my little one has a nap and catch up with much of the the work in the evening when the children are in bed.  Fortunately, since January, my youngest daughter has been attending nursery school twice a week and this has made working much easier! I am profoundly deaf and have an interpreter who works with me to interpret telephone calls, meetings and some paperwork.
Tips. I don’t work at the weekend! I like to switch off and spend time with my family.

4. What is the best bit of running your own business.
I love checking out new collections to order. I especially enjoy visiting Paris and at the same time taking a little break away from my children! I’m not mean but to be fair I work so hard and I really need a good sleep! Sometimes I stay in Paris for 2 or 3 days. I also love receiving a package of new collections – unwrapping the new items feels like Christmas! I get so excited and I can’t wait to add the new items to our website.
5. And the Worst is ?
My office is always a little messy as we receive so many orders. Also, my life changed when I launched Mabel Child and I have very little time for myself. Healthy eating, sleep and exercise are so important and achieving a balanced life is something I have to work at.
6. What advice do you have for people wanting to launch with own business?
Make a detailed one-year plan before you launch and plan for the next 3-5 years. Management is the most important! If you fail to plan and manage well, your business will struggle to be successful.
7. What are your 5 favourite things on your site?
Everything is my favourite because I have personally chosen each item.

So details. I only know about your online site but do you have a shop?
No, I don’t have a shop. Not as this time. Mabel Child is still new and growing. I want to develop my business carefully. Who knows, maybe one day Mabel Child will be a huge, successful business.
Uzma is kindly offering Shelley Loves readers 15% off everything with the code blogoffer till midnight on the 2nd April.
Happy shopping
