hopitty scotch!

A few months ago I was asked by my very girlie niece to paint her nails... and it got me thinking......  what polishes were out there designed for little ones that wasn't toxic or strong smelling, that was safe if spilled or eaten.. After a surf of skincare blogs and websites I found the well reviewed Hopscotch Kids Watercolours.

Recently featured in Babyology and LMNOP Magazine, these polishes will make any little girl (or big for that matter!) SING!

There are 10 divine colours with supercute names (red rover, ice cream, miss mary mack) and we have all them of now available here! Great for girls sleepovers, holidays and christmas stockings.

Oh my goodness, Daisy Lane is finally here!

Daisy Lane is a wonderfully sweet new label hitting stores now, designed and made by the very talented Lark

Do these images remind you of swap cards or writing sets from a time when you had a pen pal or collected cards/stickers in the 70's and 80's? Well that's where the basis of this range started from...

Allison had been wanting to develop a range of products (similar to that of Holly Hobbie / Besty Clarke) of sweet and simple things that weren't plastic, didn't require batteries, could be lovingly collected and bought with pocket money. As positive events happen, she was given the wonderful opportunity of working with a collection of archived artwork of talented illustrator Sue Adams.

The illustrations (from the 60's thru to the 80's) are a delight and Daisy Lane has just been launched with a carefully selected range of products that will surely delight - swap cards, keyrings, writing kits with more products to come.

We are lucky enough to stock this delightful range and I couldn't be happier to show it to you! It's online and instore now and Daisy Lane also has their own website and Club too, become a member!

What do you think, are you in love too?
Instore and online now x

Coco and Ginger

Coco and Ginger is owned by an Australian couple based on the Indonesian island of Bali.
They started 7 years ago producing a small run of quality baby clothes after their 2nd little girl was born.  It has slowly evolved and is now baby and girlswear, specialising in crotchet, smock and embroidery details...all in super fun colours and shapes!

Saffron and Simon strongly believe in developing and nurturing the local community craftsmanship with all handwoven fabrics locally sourced and all embroidery hand-stitched, smocked and crocheted.

They have a fair pay policy and employ seamstresses and tailors in small family-run businesses.

This label was awesome last year with its fun bright prints and doesn't disappoint this season, its gorgeous!  Get in quick if its your cup of tea, cause I know it will not last long instore.  xx
