Clothing catalogues have been in existence for many years. It is approximated that they have been present since the year 1872 and they have been growing ever since. Over the years more and more catalogues have become available. There is such a huge variety of catalogues available these days which means you can always find the best deal possible. Whether it be kitchen utensils or children’s clothes you can purchase them through a catalogue.
One of the things I love about having a daughter after having all boys is the chance to dress her up, especially when special occasions come around. Eid is just around the corner, as we celebrate the end of Ramadan, and it’s the perfect opportunity for my little princess to wear something a bit special.
I was really impressed with the range of beautiful dresses at Roco clothing, and it wasn’t easy to choose but I selected a gorgeous champagne colour dress for N (17 months) and some amazing sparkly shoes to go with it.
With only a few days until the World Cup kicks off, naturally my boys are very excited. These days, they live for football and can mostly be found out kicking a ball around or busy putting together their fantasy football teams.
The boys were each sent one of the new retro style world cup t-shirts from Hype, and they are really happy with them. These are ideal t-shirts for football fanatic kids to wear casually, to make a change from wearing their full football kits!
Teether is a new online baby boutique with a good variety of personalised and slogan clothes and pyjamas. We were sent a couple of bits to try out, and I picked out the personalised fantasy pyjamas with a Unicorn + Mermaid + Princess slogan
I love this design as I can’t resist all of the super girly and cute things (especially with having my first baby daughter after 3 boys!) so when I saw it, I instantly related to it as I have in fact been dressing her up in unicorn costumes and mermaid outfits, so the slogan is totally us!
Sainsburys have recently launched a gorgeous new range of clothes for babies featuring the beloved, classic character Elmer. Elmer first appeared in baby wear in January 2017, in an incredibly popular range for Tu!
We really loved the first Sainsburys Tu Elmer range, so I was really happy to see new Elmer clothing released. He is such a lovely colourful character, and one that’s very popular with my kids so I love dressing N in Elmer clothing. She always gets so many compliments whenever she wears her Elmer clothes! I particularly love the dungarees outfit that we were sent, and I have bought the dress outfit for her in the next size up so I can’t wait to see her in that soon.
The new school term is rolling around and will be here before we know it. This summer holidays seems to have flown past. But am I the only person who leaves getting all the school things sorted until the last minute? Luckily this year Nutmeg have helped me out by sending out some school uniform to try out, and I’ve been really impressed with the good value that they offer
Nutmeg have the full range of school wear from uniforms to PE kits, and prices started from just £2
My boys are so rough on their school shoes, particularly as they spend most of their break times and lunch times playing football on the playground. So I need shoes that are as hardwearing and durable as possible, otherwise they look scruffy and scuffed within the first term!
We were sent a pair of Start-Rite school shoes for Z and he was put them to the test during the last half of the summer term. Even after his football games and plenty of running around, they’re still looking like new with plenty of life left in them for the new school year!
The shoes we went for are a new style from Start-Rite called Extreme-Pri which is available in sizes S10 – L4, and in width fittings of E, F, G or H and the RRP for these shoes is £52.99. They are also available in a similar style Extreme SNR for bigger feet of size L4½ and up.
With Summer around the corner, we were sent a selection of outfits from the kids summer holiday range at Nutmeg. Nutmeg have some really lovely clothes, and these outfits will be great for on holiday or just for enjoying busy summer days at home.
The Nutmeg range is created with thoughtful details including no itchy labels, super soft fabric, and comes with a 200 day ‘No Quibbles’ guarantee, which covers rips, spills and outgrown pieces!
We all like to look our best, which is why most of us take the time to accessorise properly. Without a doubt, the accessories you wear has a big impact on how good you look.
Using the right shoes, jewellery and bag you can lift any outfit to a new level. Learning how to accessorise properly is essential if you want to get the most out of your clothes and keep your wardrobe budget under control. To help you with this I have put together this summer accessories post. The ideas below are designed to work particularly well with the fashion trends that are appearing in the shops at the moment.
The right footwear
I am going to start with the most important accessory, your shoes. Most of us love shoes and own far more pairs than we actually need. This is certainly true for women, and is increasingly becoming the case for men too. As a result, what others are wearing on their feet is practically the first thing we notice about someone’s outfit. That means you absolutely have to wear the right footwear.
Think casual skirts, mid calf trousers and jumpsuits and you get the idea of the type of clothes you are going to be wearing most this summer. If you were around in the 1990s, you will no doubt remember that most people were wearing pumps, sling backs and loafer style shoes. Therefore, you can expect them to be widely available this summer.
With Mother’s Day around the corner, Pia Jewellery have treated me with one of their gorgeous jewellery sets. I hadn’t heard of Pia Jewellery before but they actually have high street stores in 16 location as well as their online store, so I’ll definitely look out for them in future as their jewellery is lovely!

Playing with your child helps with their confidence, development and overall wellbeing. Many parents make the mistake of trying to take the control of how their child plays. However, you should let them experiment with unstructured play, which allows them to go at their own pace and usually revolves around their interests at that moment. […]
