{Bow down} Beautiful bows

Little Bumble Bugs is a fabulous local business who is adding some bling to your everyday.

This great little business offers something for everyone, from bows to lanyards, from sparkly gems to headbands. There is literally something for every occasion.

Our friends at Little Bumble Bugs can personalise your team colours or even create a bow just for you.

They make fantastic presents and stocking fillers. They would be incredible party favours or kris kringle gifts. I even have a few stashed away in the linen cupboard for all those sneaky kids birthday parties.

{The Nest Shops} Chi khi is your newest style stop

One of Australia’s most fantastic performers has changed direction and launched a brilliant, chic and funky children’s clothing line.

Natalie Bassingthwaighte, a mother to two gorgeous little birdies with sensitive skin says she always had trouble finding anything suitable for her little ones that wasn’t traditional or beige!

She says launching Chi Khi (pronounced Cheeky!) allowed her to offer cool, urban, unisex designs in a very popular monochrome palette combined with soft bamboo and cotton fabrics. She guarantees that everything is made to last, and as a mother of cyclones I appreciate those words!

Chi Khi offers clothing and accessories for little ones aged 0-4 years.

We are completely lusting after (READ: SOLID HINT to anyone considering buying me a baby present in the next few weeks!) this striking Messy Dot Blanket, talk about the bees knees and the ants pants! With generous sizing and created using beautiful products this blanket is destined to become a favourite!

{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:

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!
