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.
Whilst looking for items for tomorrow’s post I stumbled across these fabulous bargains and felt they were too good not to share! Stripes are always a good idea and go with anything. Oh and there’s also free delivery with the code FREEDEL! Even better.
Bobby and Daisy’s presents were delivered by Santa in these last year and they were so gorgoeus. Bob kept his toys in them all over Christmas, I think they impressed the kids as much as their presents did! There are some fabulous ones around and John Lewis even have them this year. Here are some of my favourites.
Daisy and Bobby wanted to share some more of their favourite books with you but weren’t as willing to have their photos taken with them, so here are some they thought would make good Christmas pressies. Tree: Seasons Come, Seasons Go is just the most beautiful book showing the same tree throughout the seasons through the eyes of an owl. It has ‘windows’ on each page that you can look through and Daisy and Bob love to find all the animals that live in the tree. The illustrations are magical whilst teaching your children about seasons, wildlife and nature through beautiful rhyme.
Another firm favourite with both my two, this story is told through rhyme and is about a little mouse that struggles to be heard. He is ignored and often forgotten about and has to watch as the lion is respected and listened to by all. He decides he is going to be brave and ask the lion to teach him to be more like him and an unlikely friendship is formed. Such a good lesson in that we should always be brave as we all have a mouse and lion in us. Again gorgeous illustrations.
Run run as fast as you can, as these sell out real quick. If you spend £35 at Marks and Spencer’s today you get the Beauty Advent Calender for £35. A total bargain as it should cost £250. I bought the leopard print coat I posted about recently, but there are lots of other beautiful items.
Daisy recieved this fabulous little set last year off Father Christmas and has loved it. Both her and the rest of us have had hours of fun. A perfect idea for a stocking filler. It has 40 beautifully designed fortune tellers to make with 24 of these being themed. What will your job be? What new dance will you take up? What’s your inner animal? And a motto for the day, are just a few. Seriously good fun that for once doesn’t make that much of a mess.
Daisy and Bobby went to put on their slippers the other night and neither of them had any that fitted. A mad panic and a snoop around the internet later, some were quickly purchased. There are some beautiful ones around, seriously cute for the little ones and extra furry for the not so little ones. Above and below are some of my favourites.
I thought it was about time I dedicated a post to my permanent shops. They have been on the blog for quite a while now but I haven’t gotten round to telling you about them. Some of you may have had a good look around the site and already found them, but for those who haven’t their is a link at the top of the page that states each shop and if you click on it it will take you to all items within that particular shop. There is a Girls Shop, Boys Shop, Ladies Shop, Baby Shop and even a Maternity shop. Above and below are a small selection of what is included.
Yey it’s finally hat weather! I know I should be happy that the sun is still shining and I am, I really am but how cute do babies look, snuggled up in layers, with the cutest hats on? Animal ears, pom poms, there are just too many beauties about not to share. More of my favourites below.
