Review: The Letterbox Cake by Baker Days

February 15, 2016

Recently we celebrated Little Red’s first birthday. The whole monumental event crept up on me like some sort of emotional ninja. Her first year has flashed by in a mix of adjustment, tantrums, chaos, cuddles, and adoration. There has been little to no time to browse the likes of Pinterest in order to find the perfect seven-tiered-floral-masterpiece inspiration to mark the occasion; one that I would spend hours lovingly crafting. Unlike Big Red, who received an ombre-rainbow extravaganza, I hadn’t considered what cake Little Red would be presented with. When the lovely Emma at Baker Days got in touch and asked how they…

The Bunny Baby Coat

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I love to dress my babies in anything that makes them look like an animal. It pleases me. Very much. However, as Little Red approaches her first birthday, a teddy bear snow suit is feeling just a little bit too much like a newborn choice. So, when I found this gorgeous bunny coat at my local Tesco, I was more than a little delighted on the inside. I think Little Red looks like a peach in it, especially with this bargain printed Zara t-shirt I nabbed in the summer sale. The shorts…

Fair Isle Jumper Slogan Slipper Shoes in velvet. How better to channel one’s inner Hugh Heff? Statement Sequin Top, and I mean it when I say that this shouldn’t be reserved for date nights only. Wear it whilst doing your weekly shop, and wear it proud, I say! Slouchy Tote I am in love with this Corsage Party Dress for Big Red. If they sold a matching Mumma version I’d wear it daily. This Holiday Necklace would perk up any grey slub t-shirt or breton stripe comfort clothing day. Pretty Fair Isle Cardigan for Little Red so that we could walk…

Proud Mum Gift Wishlist

mama_chain_in_rosegold_silver

I am evidently very fond of wearing products that effectively brand me as a Mother. I own two Selfish Mother sweatshirts and I’m eyeing up a third, so it made complete sense to make a quick wishlist of other things that state my relatively new role pretty loudly. I’m hoping that Father Christmas reads this blog…. hello! Cult of Youth even describe their Mama Chain in rose gold & silver as a badge of pride. I absolutely love it. To be honest I would most likely wear it with this jumper, because you can’t state the obvious enough, in my opinion!…
