Retro World Cup T-Shirts from Hype

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!

Personalised Baby Clothes from Teether

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!

Elmer Clothing Range at Sainsburys

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.

Back to School Shoes with Start-Rite

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.

Affordable Summer Accessory Ideas for 2017

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.

This year, most of the outfits you are going to buy will look best with flat or low-heeled shoes. A lot of the clothes you are going to see in the shops are inspired by the fashions of the 90s.

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.

Nutmeg SS17 Kids Clothing Range

It may be still Winter, but Spring is around the corner and soon the new SS17 ranges will be in the shops! If you’re looking forward to warmer weather, take a look at what you can expect from Nutmeg over the next season. We had the chance to see a preview of the range a few weeks ago, and they have some lovely clothes for all ages, with plenty of attention to detail.

Nutmeg’s thoughtful details aim to make everyone’s life a bit easier, including non-slip socks, soft, machine-washable fabrics and no itchy labels. They have adjustable waists, as kids come in all shapes and sizes, and big zips which makes it easier for younger kids to manage dressing by themselves. The baby clothes use a comfier jersey denim fabric, which is stretchy and soft to give little ones more flexibility to move comfortably, and other baby clothes are made with side poppers for easy on and off.

The entire Nutmeg range also comes with a 200 day guarantee!

Here are a few of our favourites from the new SS17 range at Nutmeg




Gillet – £9
