Parenting: One Less Thing to Worry About

IMG_6845

Have you read this from Huffington Post (’7 things good mothers do that I’m not going to do any more’)? It made me chuckle. And it made me realise that I’ve already let go of certain things – for which read: not having to eat everything on your plate. My new mantra is: it’s fine, you don’t have to eat it, but there’s nothing else. Nor will I sail into battle over things my daughter will not eat (carrots, primarily). I’ll put them in sauces (she’ll eat them) and keep putting them on her plate (ever-hopeful that she might crack), but I refuse to entertain the vegetable equivalent of a raindance. I simply do not have the time or energy. And I probably should give myself a break if the house isn’t perfectly clean and tidy at the end of every day (but my eyes! My eyes! It offends my eyes!) But one of the points had not occurred to me and was totally liberating…

How to decorate a nursery

Pin It

OLLI ELLA_PITTER PATTER BEDDING Pink_www.picandmiximages.co.ukI’ve decorated the designated nursery in my home twice. Both times I went with a very neutral palette (more on my little boy’s room here) – sinply because I felt I would personalise the space once I got to know its little owner. However, I wish I had known about nursery design¬† destination Olli Ella sooner. (Kate! Wills! There’s still time!)

Set up by sisters Chloe and Olivia Brookman, the ethos behind Olli Ella is that not only should the decor in your baby’s room be beautiful, useful and stylish – but should also work anywhere else in the home. This is the smart – and super-stylish – way to decorate. With the most delightful, playful prints and gorgeous designs – I am totally smitten (and can forsee some additions to my little boy’s nursery).

Co-founder Chloe agreed to talk us through her tips for decorating that terribly important small bedroom…

Have a Mango moment

Mango is definitely having a moment. First noticed by Natasha last year, the Spanish brand has really upped it’s game with collections that are not only on the money fashion-wise, but are incredibly wearable and really well-priced. Having regularly shopped Mango some – ahem- years ago, it had dropped off my radar when the clothes no longer appealed to me, but that’s all changed. Walking into the Westfield store yesterday, there was a LOT that I could’ve bought. It was really quite scary. Here’s what I found…

Hop Little Bunny…

For_LittleCloud_March2015_100__90801.1426766648.1280.1280Hop along, right into my little girl’s bedroom. How gorgeous are these rabbit cushions from new-to-me Little Cloud (¬£24 each in a variety of Liberty prints)? Perfect for Easter (and Easter Bunny fans – my daughter has gone to school with an Easter bunny hat for her bonnet parade this morning). I’m quite besotted. I also love the personalised name cushions – which would make gorgeous presents. This is one website to click now – it’s full of delights.

Object of Lust: French Market Basket

Pin It

efa0cfa5eb80bb418e61d96d10f0333bI do love a basket. I realised the other day that I have one in every room in the house. For toys, logs, laundry, bedding, paperwork, loo rolls… If only I had more rooms, I would have more baskets. And I love the idea of breezing around come summer, basket on arm, filled with flowers, freshly baked bread and a good novel. (Come on, let a girl dream.) Even though the reality is more along the lines of baby wipes, nappies, rice cakes, children’s books and Sophie the Giraffe, I can still tote them around in the basket of my dreams.
