Poco Nido, 2013 Collection


Poco Nido have some bright and colorful things in store for this Spring (is it here yet?) and not just the comfy shoes we have all come to know and love. The range is expanding... with wellies and clothing featuring more of their cute characters and patterns. I love how they have brought their little owl icon to life and with a slew of cute new friends. These are just a few of my favorite shots from their latest campaign but be sure to check out their site for the full range and see if you can decide on your favorites for your little ones.

You can see my previous post about their special edition Olympic Tees here!

Party Time: April Showers


A few weeks ago, a very good friend of mine approached me about coming up with a theme and designing invites for her upcoming baby shower. After having a chat about what ideas she had in mind, I did a little digging around the web for inspiration and we decided on an April Showers theme. The ever popular cloud and raindrops icon perfectly sit within this theme, bringing an element of sophistication and freshness to a baby shower. Because she was flying back to the States for the shower, I sadly wouldn't be able to make it. So to further help in the only way I could from so far away, I decided to take it to the next step and create a mood board based around the invites... inspiration and some easy DIYs that she could recreate! To keep things gender neutral, I paired various shades of yellow and gray against soft whites, trying to incorporate it throughout all of the party elements. One of my favorite treats are the cotton candy lollipops... fluffy, sweet, and they just look pretty too! I had a lot of fun with this so I might be creating a few more party themed mood boards in the future just for fun. If you have any upcoming festivities and are stuck for inspiration, shoot me an email :)


Easter Fun!

Easter was so much more fun this year with two little ones to help celebrate with! Luckily the sun decided to grace us with it's presence and we were able to do our scheduled Easter egg hunt in the back garden... because egg hunting (and smashing) just isn't as fun indoors. We tested out the confetti eggs and they were a huge success! The girls (and adults) loved it and it added a colorful element to the garden. The girls enjoyed the rare sunshine running around and finding as many chocolate eggs as they could carry! Later they (and I really mean we) stuffed our faces with as much chocolate as we could manage... because hey, that's just the sort of appetite you work up after so much fun! Oh and in case you were unsure and wondering, L is the older one of the two... the one who still wearing those bunny ears days after Easter!
