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.

My favourite Santa sacks…


Personalised Christmas Sack

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.

Books we love…


Tree: Seasons Come, Seasons Go

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.


The Lion Inside

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.

The Beauty calender…



Beauty Advent Calender

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.

Fortune maker…


Lagoon Fortune Teller


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.
