It may not have been a very wet winter here in South Australia, but it sure has been a cold one! I am very much hanging out for some nice Spring weather to peek around the corner and warm us up a little. After months of layer upon layer of winter clothing (and truckloads of wet washing on drying racks) I am getting super excited at the sight of these breezy summer looks by Australian designer label Eeni Meeni Miini Moh:

It looks like our little ladies are in for a real treat this Summer season, look at those pretty sorbet, coral and aqua blue shades, combined with timeless grey, white and silver. Skirts, shorts, dresses, singlets, tops… Eeni Meeni Miini Moh has your girl’s whole wardrobe covered.

At nearly two Hattie has been promoted from the Enfant collection and can have her pick from the entire Eeni range which means choosing has become even harder. In saying that I can never resist a good stripe and this Pique Dress looks (RRP $59.95, size 12m-5) perfect for adventurous tots. It’s comfortable enough for running, climbing, dancing and even naps, just add some sweet sandals and she’s Summer ready.

Secretly I dread the day our nearly 9-year old twins grow out of the e3-M range (up to 12 years old) and are forced into young adult fashion, but thankfully I have a few more years up my sleeve. They love being active and playing outside, so I think the Racer Top (RRP $39.95, size 2-12) matched with the comfy Classic 5 Short (RRP $64.95, size 2-12) are a perfect pick. Olivia would love the bright Sunset colour and it’s a great look for both play and going out.

Yellow has been Juliet’s number one colour from when she was a cheeky toddler and it still is her first choice now. As today happens to be her 7th birthday I must show you this sunny Frill Dress (RRP $69.95, size 2-12) in cheery Sunkist yellow. How can you not dream of splashing in the pool, yummy ice creams and lazy Summer nights when you see this cute frock? I just love the casual tie-back shoulders, keeping it fun front and back.

I am super chuffed to see my personal fave colour indigo pop up in the new girls collection too, you can never go wrong with a classy blue! The delightful frill sleeves and stunning keyhole back of this gorgeous ‘La Vie Est Belle’ Dress (RRP $89.95, size 12m-5) make it a real winner for birthdays, special celebrations and even Christmas. It’s definitely going on my short-list for miss Sybbie’s 5th birthday in February.

Tommie absolutely lived in his e3-M slouch shorts last summer (in fact, he loved them so much I had to buy a second pair) so I must grab them again for the upcoming season. They are super easy to wash and wear and stay beautiful even after many washes. I know it’s very convenient to play it safe for the boys with plain, neutral colours, but I really love these funky Maldives mint Slouch Shorts (RRP $54.95, size 2-12) mixed with the classic grey and indigo Polo T-shirt (RRP $49.95, size 2-12), cool combi!

Any day now we’ll finally know the gender of baby no.6, so I will have to leave the big newborn shop until then. Thankfully Eeni Meeni Miini Moh has little surprise bundles covered too with the La Petite + Pure newborn range perfect for baby showers and brand new arrivals. Featuring mainly grey and white tones these pieces are timeless and great for mixing and matching. How cute is the star studded La Petite Jumpsuit (RRP $54.95, size 0-3m) with it’s adorable detachable hood?

Snuggle up in style with Pappe

As I am once again unpacking all my newborn things for the arrival of baby no.6 it is clear that our hand-me-downs hold many special moments and wonderful memories for our family. Touching the tiny clothes I remember quiet hospital cuddles, the ride home, sneaky snoozes, first walks outside and loads of precious photos and I feel incredibly grateful for the gift of our babies. Like its siblings this baby is sure to be showered with love and will enjoy plenty of pre-loved pieces, but of course some new treasures made it into our nursery too:

Each of our children has its own unique blanket, chosen especially for him/her, that has been with them since day one. Even now they still cherish their blankets, whether it is a favourite bedtime buddy for night time or naps, couch cuddles or just for pretend play. Not knowing the gender of our new addition just yet, this time around I went straight for my favourite neutral colour: classic navy blue…

As soon as I laid eyes on this stunning blanket by luxury designer label Pappe I knew it was meant for me. Not only does the Ottley Twill Blanket (RRP $129.95) ooze class, warmth and style and is gender neutral in colour, it also happens to match our pram perfectly! I think it will be the ideal welcome for our little bundle of joy and I can’t wait to see our darling baby wrapped up in it. Nice bonus: Being reversible you can create two different looks with just one blanket, how awesome is that?

Made from 100% high quality cotton poplin yarn with an eye-catching brushed finish the Ottley blanket is a real stand-out piece, you can expect lots of jealous looks when out and about with Ottley! I think the Italian leather Pappe label really is the cherry on top for this designer blanket. The generous 100 x 75cm size makes it a great choice for walks in the pram, naps in the cot or snuggling on the couch, it will keep the chills at bay wherever you go and is sure to be enjoyed for years to come.

Combining nostalgic charm with modern simplicity it is no wonder style conscious parents all over the globe are rapidly falling in love with Pappe’s timeless range of baby/toddler clothing and accessories. I love how Pappe handpicks the most beautiful cashmere, organic cottons, pure wool blends and tweed fabrics, chosen for their excellent quality, luxurious feel and wonderful durability. Whether you are shopping for your own baby or another special little person in your life, you can count on Pappe to deliver nothing but the very best.

Eeni Meeni Miini Moh Autumn/Winter 2017 is here!

 Style  Comments Off on Eeni Meeni Miini Moh Autumn/Winter 2017 is here!
Feb 052017
 

Eeni Meeni logo

I won’t lie, I have found this first back-to-school week rather stressful. As a result I *may* have indulged in a bit of online shopping therapy to get me through, please tell me I am not the only one? I love seeing the new Autumn/Winter styles slowly arriving into stores and I can’t wait to get started on the kids’ wardrobes for next season. Need some inspiration? The brand new Eeni Meeni Miini Moh collection has just been released and here are my favourites:

Now that she is a big kindy girl miss Sybil is working very hard at dressing herself in the morning, I think this stripey Boatneck Dress (RRP $64.95, size 12m – 5) would make a fabulous ‘easy’ kindy dress that is soft, comfortable and easy to put on and take off. Just add a pair of tights/leggings to make urgent toilet breaks a breeze too, there’s no time to wrestle with buttons or zips!

At almost 17 months old Harriet is no longer a baby, she’s running around everywhere and turning out to be quite the independent, cheeky toddler. Purple hues look amazing on her, so my pick for her would be the pretty Owl Frill Top in gorgeous Vervain Marle, matched up with the funky Indigo Marle Skegging (RRP $49.95, size 12m – 5). How cute is the ‘left’ and ‘right’ heart detail on the knees? So adorable.

I know that after a whole week in school uniform my girls are always looking forward to putting on something bright, comfortable and girly. Olivia would absolutely love the vibrant ‘lipstick’ hue of the Hoodie Dress (RRP $74.95, size 2-12) , but if your little lady prefers something a bit more subtle the dress is available in black marle too. I think it would make a great outfit for a relaxed winter weekend.

If you were to ask Juliet you can never go wrong with some bright pink and silver shine, take this sweet mix + match combi with the Relaxed Paris TopStriped Skegging (RRP $49.95, size 2-8) and as the star of the show the Silver Foil Gathered Skirt (RRP $69.95, size 2-12). The three styles look amazing together but can also easily be worn with other colours and garments that are already in your child’s wardrobe so you can create a range of different looks.

Last but not least our one and only boy who is growing so fast I can hardly keep up, can you believe he is already wearing the same shoe size as his mum? With the cooler season in mind I think the Gauge Knit Sweater (RRP $79.95, size 2-8) is a great mix of cool and classy. The Mist Marle is neutral yet adds a little touch of colour to an often dark and grey season. Team it up with the super relaxed Dude Pant (RRP $84.95, size 2 -12) and you’ve got yourself a winning combo that is sure to get the thumbs up from your favourite guy.

I may not have a little man to dress right now but that won’t stop me admiring all the stylish new Eeni Meeni boys gear. This season is far from boring with some great bright flashes mixed in with the timeless greys, blue and green tones. I love it when kids are allowed to be kids and can show a bit of spunk and personality through their wardrobe, you’re only young for a little while!

Beautiful Bellies on a Budget

 Mum, Sales & Savings  Comments Off on Beautiful Bellies on a Budget

As a mum of five I know all too well that putting together a good maternity/nursing wardrobe can be costly. I learnt quickly that you need to think ahead and invest in garments that are timeless, good quality and will grow with you during your pregnancy and ideally can be worn afterwards too. Struggling to find those perfect pieces without breaking the bank? Check out these awesome sale buys from Beautiful Bellies:

Designed for pregnancy and beyond the classic Ninth Moon Stripe Tube Dress (RRP $79.99, now $29) is sure to be a big wardrobe favourite for stylish mamas. Made from soft, stretchy fabric this lovely dress is super comfortable and the gathered sides will bring out your growing tummy beautifully. It even has hidden breastfeeding access, simply open up the press studs and lift up the under layer. At almost 16 months old miss Hattie still feeds several times a day so I couldn’t resist treating myself so this bargain, I’ll let you know how we go!

This casual Ninth Moon Hoodie Feeding Top (RRP $69.95, now $19.95) is perfect for cooler weather: the longer length will keep your baby bump nice and warm and when it comes to feeding you can stay cosy and covered up. Just team it up with your favourite jeans and you’ve got yourself a great pregnancy combo. There are several different colours to choose from, you just have to be lucky with size!

Sneakily I am still tossing up whether to get this stunning Ninth Moon Maxi Dress (RRP $99.95, now $39). Navy is my favourite colour and I can totally see myself wearing this classy frock, I just love the little tan belt that adds a lovely shape to your waist! It would look amazing with a beautiful baby belly and would look great post-baby too when it offers easy nursing access and hides any unwanted lumps and bumps.

Christmas Countdown – Day 6

Most parents will agree that this time of year is extra special when there is a new little one on the way or when celebrating your baby’s first Christmas. As a mum of five I know very well how precious those ‘First Christmas’ photos are and how much thought goes into picking the perfect gifts and the right festive outfit. If you’re on the hunt for some gorgeous gear for your cute bundle or another precious little one in your life I’ve got just the address for you:

baby-gift-works

Australian online store Baby Gift works is filled to the brim with handpicked treasures: beautiful clothing, sweet accessories, cool gifts, luxurious toiletries, lovely linen and more, what will you put under the tree this year?

frugi-suitWhen it comes to shopping for a baby it’s OK to be picky, in fact it is very important to be selective and carefully choose items that are high quality, durable and gentle on both your baby and the environment. Baby Gift Works owner and mother of two Kyla has come to the aid of conscious parents and sourced some of the best organic and eco-friendly labels in Australia and even across the globe.

frugi-hedgehog-muslinPopular UK brand Frugi is loved all over the world for its super soft organic cotton fabrics, comfortable fits and excellent durability, my children own quite a few Frugi garments and I can absolutely vouch for their fantastic quality. You can find an extensive range of Frugi clothes and accessories at Baby Gift Works and I love that you can easily mix and match different pieces to create new looks. Bonus: If you spend $100 or more on Frugi products you will receive a free Christmas gift box, now that’s wrapping made easy.

tots-botsAnother awesome reason eco-parents like Frugi is the fact that, unlike most mainstream clothing, its designs are spacious enough to allow for reusable cloth nappies. They have even teamed up with the nappy specialists at Tots Bots to create an exclusive range of designer cloth nappies to match the Frugi prints, they are so adorable and so much better on the budget (and the environment) than disposables. This Hedgehog in Wellies print is my big favourite, perfect for miss Hattie.
