When it comes to a child’s bedroom, bedding can really make a room and pull the style together. It should be fun, playful and make kids want to cosy up into bed ready for a bedtime story and then to drift off into the land of nod. Lulu & Nat have produced some beautiful children’s bedding for both nursery and bedroom interiors. The designs are fresh and bright without being overpowering. Prints range from farmyard frolics, to primary coloured vehicles; from neon bunnies to bold tigers. There is a design to suit every child and their passions.
The designs certainly bring colour and fun into a child’s room …truly reflecting how children see the world – in glorious technicolor filled with wonderment. You an find out more about the brand and their products here.
For many of us, it’s the start of half term as this week draws to a close. While we all hope the weather stays good enough to let the kids out so as to not set off a bout of cabin fever, we look at what we are loving this week.
Emily & Heath make Liberty print pieces for kids and the personalised stocking is just darling. Perfect as a new baby gift for any Christmas baby or simply as something for your child to hang with care above the fireplace. Available here.
These cute retro designed melamine plates from By Graziela will brighten up any kitchen table. Available here.
If the weather threatens a dull day to be out and about how about getting the kids involved with designing their own organic cotton PJ’s this Half term? The set, from Lala & Bea includes Neon Dylon pens and comes packaged in a lovely tote bag which can be personalised. It’s also a great idea as a Christmas Eve gift so the kids have their unique pyjamas for Christmas day. Available here.
If there was a pair of boots made for Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas, then these are them….& Other Stories black suede ankle boots with silver stars are beautiful. Available here.
Here’s a pretty piece for the Christmas wish list. This spinning necklace from Merci Maman is part of their new collection which can be personalised with a message of your choice. We love the gold and pink combination (other colours are available). Available here.

They are offering £10.00 off when you buy two coats in any size, style or colour combination. See here for more details and to shop the range.
Kerikit luxury changing bags have been designed by a busy mum who appreciates that when we become mums, we do not suddenly loose all sense of style. Admittedly, the first few days after having a baby some may say otherwise but, once we’ve figured out that we can have a shower and brush our teeth and if the baby cries for longer than 30 seconds then that’s OK, we are off out. Getting out and about is one of the best things a new mum can do. It makes us feel connected with the outside world again and engage with other adults.
The Kerikit changing bags help make us mums feel special as well as organised. They are made of luxury leather with detailed finishes (even the changing mat manages to ooze luxury with its leather trim and fastening…which can then be used as a laptop sleeve). The bags have numerous pockets and pouches to make room for everything a mum may need…from nappies, to changes of clothes, to bottles and snacks. Georgie has had chance to try a few of their styles out and all have been perfect for various tasks. They have been tested travelling, lunching and for general days out…and passed with flying colours at everything which has been thrown at them.
As they are luxury changing bags, they have been designed so that once the kids no longer require the paraphernalia which has to follow them about everywhere, the bags can become luxury bags within their own right. Small considerations such as making a pocket big enough to hold a laptop or a mini zipped pouch at the top of the backpack to store keys in have been thought of.

We love a leather jacket, but it is getting pretty crisp and chilly out there now, so what better Autumn layer than a version of our favourite go-with-everything jacket than the Aviator Jacket?
Now these can be unbelievably pricey, so we thought we would look at the more affordable (some are still pretty expensive mind) high street options that are available throughout the high street at the moment. Here are our picks of the bunch…
