Each day I bring you the one thing that’s top of my shopping list. Or pinned on my Pinterest lust-list. Or screen-shotted every two minutes on Instagram. From the cutest new kids clothes (expect a lot of toddler boy buys) to cute mum-worthy fashion buys and all the accessories and kids kit in between… This is the only shopping list you need.
One of the more miserable things about being pregnant and breastfeeding for months or years on end is that you can’t drink anything. This is particularly stressful if you have another small child around driving you to the bottle. Given that I’m neither pregnant nor breastfeeding, my medicinal glass of red is very much still on the agenda, but when I have expectant mum-friends over, it’s nice to have something to offer them to drink that isn’t Robinson’s. Scavi & Ray’s non-alcoholic Prosecco is so good it passes for the real thing. And NO hangovers (or drunk un-borns) in sight. Hoorah.
If you’re missing the summer sun (I’m cold, are you cold?) and the golden glow that goes with it, a little bronzer is the quickest complexion pick-me-up. I love pretty much all of Benefit’s box blushers and bronzers, but Hoola Lite has become a favourite this year, as it’s the perfect tone for my skin.
Feel good about the nappies you put your baby in; I love Kit & Kin’s biodegradable nappies – they’re leak-free and much kinder to the environment than many other brands.
This plumping serum from Vichy is nicely affordable as a skincare treat at £22, and the cooling gel-like formula is instantly absorbed, making the perfect pre-makeup complexion pick-me-up. Love this product.
Skeletons, dinosaurs, monochrome. Again, can we please scale up this kidswear piece for the ladies’ department?
Jack has a slightly older version of this raincoat. And I’m jealous of it every single time he wears it.
TBH, I need these socks for myself. But as is so often the case, all the cool clothes come in Jack sizes only.
The best quick-fix cleanser for days when you just want to roll straight into bed. So, every day then. Gets rid of all makeup, dirt (and second-hand snot).
If they love Peppa Pig, they’ll adore this little magnet book that lets them place Peppa & co anywhere on the page.
The absolute best feeding bowl for minimising spillages and food throwing. It looks pretty, too. Just remember not to microwave it, OK?
Fact #1: Toddlers’ jeans fall down a lot.
Fact #2: Toddlers look cute in braces.
These little jeans with attached braces were a no-brainer, really. Jack looks delicious in them.
