Mikk & Me

And then she was two. The last two years have been rather interesting to say the least but we have learnt to live on little sleep and are getting lots of smiles, cuddles and cheeky antics in return. When we named our baby girl Sybil everyone commented on the ‘quirky’ name and there truly is no one like her so this custom made birthday gift from Mikki & Me is perfect for our much loved treasure:

Colour and Spice

I can just manage to remember the different birthdays but with four kids it is sometimes a bit tricky to remember who weighed what and at what time they were born. Instead of every time having to dig up the blue books I decided to get each child a personalised birth print for their bedroom wall, problem solved! It was about time we got one for baby Sybil who is now four months old and I found a gorgeous one at Colour and Spice:

Name ArtMost parents put a lot of thought into choosing the right name for their child so it is really lovely to see that special name ‘on show’ in such a beautiful way. It is also a sweet way to tell your children about their birth, my twins are always asking me how little they were, what they looked like and why we picked the names that we did. Our Colour and Spice print is looks absolutely perfect in Sybil’s nursery.

Fancy Little Me

On December 31, snuggled up in bed inside a cabin in The Grampians, hubby and I took some time to look at photos of 2012. It keeps amazing me how quickly the kids have grown and it was so nice to see how much we actually did last year, so many trips and beautiful memories. We picked a few favourite photos of our little tribe that we want to do something with in our home, and I am thinking Fancy Little Me may just be what we are looking for.

Fancy Little Me is an Australian company that turns people’s favourite photographs into works of art, this award-winning business is the love baby of owner and entrepeneur Lety. If you are looking for something unique and eye catching you will love Lety’s handywork, she is clearly very talented and it is no wonder many Australian families have fallen in love with her creations already.

All you need to do is upload your favourite photo and pick one of the Fancy Little Me design options to suit your photo and your interior. The website offers some great tips for selecting a good photo for your artwork as obviously not every photo is suitable. They are all absolutely beautiful but my top pick would have to be Typograhy Love, I can just picture miss 2 in this setting already.

Vintage BirdOnce you have made your choice you simply place your order online and Lety will do the rest, just 7 working later your very own custom made portrait will be ready for dispatch. To make sure you are completely happy with the end result you will be sent a digital proof of your artwork before it is printed, not that I doubt that it will look just stunning.

Yesterday I shared our exciting news and I am sure you know what that means: I am on the hunt for the biggest maternity and new baby essentials. I can tell you that while I left for Holland wearing my skinniest jeans ever I was unable to wrestle myself in them by the time we had to go back. I like to think that was all thanks/due to the baby but the amount of delicious Dutch food I ate probably had something to do with it too. Anyway, there is nothing more comfortable for (and more perfect for hiding) a growing baby belly than a pair of beautiful, good quality maternity tights.

When I slipped on these blue denim maternity tights by Glitter Baby I straight away noticed they fitted like a glove, they are stylish, soft and stretchy and cleverly worn with a tunic top no one would guess there is a little baby hiding under there (for now). I am really thrilled with them as they are very versatile, just team them up with a short dress, tunic, shirt or top and a pair of boots for a different stylish autumn look day-after-day.

Glitter Baby is an Australian family business, with all Glitter Baby Tights custom made by mum Kerry and daughters Cassandra and Carly. In store you’ll find a large range of styles, colours and prints for hip toddlers, girls, women and expecting mothers, there is a Glitter Baby design to suit everyone big or small. How gorgeous are these Glitter Baby Toddler Tights in blue denim with pink gingham frills at the back? My oldest daughter would love ‘tights just like mummy’.

The Glitter Baby Mummy 2 B range is specifically designed to carry you all the way through pregnancy and beyond. With a soft, stretchy panel that will adapt to suit your growing belly they are a perfect fit at all times. If you are a little more game than me you can really make a fashion statement in one of the sparkly, velvet or sequin designs, they are sure to get everyone looking at and admiring your beautiful bump!

You can view all the available Glitter Baby designs in the online catalogue and once you have made your choice you can place your order online straight away. Prices ranges from $28 (Glitter Baby Todddler Tights) to $80 (Glitter Baby Maternity Tights).
