And just like that, he is 18

Posted on by

I’ve been quite emotional about this, I can’t lie.  It is SO true that time flies, whether it’s good or bad you can’t slow it down and yes,  hindsight is a wonderful thing.  My first born, first love, turns 18years old. So, as a note to me and maybe him, (he may read it one day), I was going to write 18 things about O…..


But decided that maybe wasn’t enough.  I could also go on about autism, diagnosis, milestones, my mistakes, how big and wide your feet are, how handsome you are, your isms, obsessions, our ups and downs, staying true to yourself, your kind soul, how hard mothering can be, what I have learned.  But the crux of story that is you so far is…

…..I’m proud of you
and you’re pretty awesome.

Happy birthday O, I love you x


nail party with Little BU!

Posted on by


We’ve been fans of Little BU for some time now, and featured it on our advent calendar as the perfect stocking stuffer last year.  In June we were happy to meet Little Bu’s founder Patricia Dente Haimes at Bubble London.  With years of experience in the beauty industry, including some time at a personal nail polish favorite, Chanel, Patricia founded Little BU after noticing savvy young babes going along to their mummy’s mani pedi appointments.

Little BU has a variety of colors from Turquoise (Olivia) to Sparkly Pink (Cecilia) that all have a lovely glossy finish.  The water based polishes are odourless and most importantly non toxic, so there’s no worry about the harms that come with some of the polishes found on the market today.  Even better … the polish is wash off, so no need for and nail polish remover.


Little BU was sweet enough to send us their Spring colors, new top coat, and nail art stickers!  We decided to set up a mini nail salon at our children’s friends birthday party to test our new treat.  The kids loved all the colors, several wanting to paint every nail a different color, and the stickers were something fun they could add on themselves.  It was such a great activity to do with the little ones, and the mums had to all try the products out themselves!


We would definitely recommend Little BU as a gift to any little girl.  On their site you can find several gift and party packs!  They have a great competition up right now, that you can check out here!

Thanks Little BU and all our precious models!
