{Style} About a boy

I have this well dressed imaginary toddler boy who I constantly undertake a search for perfect little man clothes for.

I LOVE boy clothes shopping.

When my obsession with my imaginary toddler gets too much my poor nephew constantly gets ‘boring clothes again’ from his favourite aunt. I just can’t help myself!

Here are my latest lusts..

{Wear this} Finally a sleepwear armistice

An irrational ongoing search has been occurring in our household for the last few months. My toddler-bird and I have been at loggerheads for what counts as appropriate sleepwear.

Like I said, I am aware of its irrationality but if you have a three year old, wait - if you have ever even met a three year old, you will probably know how the smallest issues can often be the biggest things!

After wearing a tutu to bed, her Ariel swimmers, a cardboard box (I kid you not) and an American Indian costume I finally decided it was time that we set some boundaries (it was becoming an OH&S issue!).

Finally, we agreed on some gorgeous new sleepwear and I wanted to share with you:

pjs

These BONDS pyjamas are comfy and soft and girly enough that even her Royal-Highness-Toddler-Bird is happy to wear them.

I really cannot recommend these PJs enough  if you have a fussy little lady in your life.

You can find them here -> BONDS – Star PJs - Plus at the moment they are only $17.00!

Go get some!

{Prizeapolooza} Sassy Little sistas should be on Santa’s list..

christmas photoshop small copy

While we usually focus on local businesses during the Christmas Prizeapolooza Sassy Little Sistas is the worthy exception!PicsArt

Owned and operated by the very talented Tanya from Leeville in Northern NSW (see: more country than city) Sassy Sistas is a wonderful place filled with great design, clever workmanship and fabulous style (plus her sister lives in Bathurst so we will accept her as a local anyway!)

While I am lucky to make a peanut butter sandwich, Tanya is delicately creating all types of gifts and clothing for the little birdies in your life. photo-3

Tanya has taken her lifelong love of sewing for family and friends and turned it into her very own business. While she studied textiles and design in school she is a self-taught handmaiden! photo

Sassy Little Sistas came about after Tanya found that she was unable to locate good quality, unique items for her own children and as a result identified a market for her own high quality, handmade items.

Tanya prides herself on quality workmanship, rather than quantity. Only using the highest quality materials and her very broad skillset she creates fabulous designs that you are unable to find anywhere else.

You can contact Sassy Little Sistas either by email or Facebook:

Email:sassylittlesistas@gmail.com

The gorgeous Tanya has jumped on board the Prizeapolooza train and is offering a $40.00 voucher to one very lucky winner. You can choose from rompers, or skirts, ipad covers to dresses or whatever you like! To be a winner all you have to do is ‘like’ Sassy Little Sistas’ Facebook page as well as The Central Nest on Facebook! – Easy!

Happy winning Nesters!
