Love this Korean brand Bebe De PIno. Founded in 2010 by couple Katie and Ryan, take inspiration from their two daughters. Pieces come in limited quantities to keep the clothing fresh and current.
Now the temperature has dropped, it’s all about layers, jumpers and keeping warm and snug. We have some great Braveling Little Titan tights, gorgeous quirky designs, that are unisex and fun for dressing up in. My boys love the wild legs, skybound and monster pairs. All stocked in the Lil’ Beans shop. A great addition to dress up your Halloween costume too! Here are some of our other favourites along with the Little Titans to keep the littles legs warm:
New in this week to the shop is Organic Zoo. Gorgeous soft basics for age range 0-3y, made from 100% organic cotton.
Head over to the shop to see the full range.
Love these pants from U.S brand childHOODS. Handmade in Texas, they are great looking, yet simple basics. A great thing about small brands like this is, if you don’t see the size you like you can pay a bit extra for a custom order. It’s the little things sometimes, that make all the difference.

I’m an admirer of the Ace & Jig brand. I like Jenna Wilson and Cary Vaughan’s passion for the fabrics they have made in India, which are truly beautiful in real life. I also love their kids range and have had my eye on it for a while.
This video showing their SS15 collection got me a little bit excited.
Love this new brand that launched this week Finch + Agnes. Comfortable, key pieces you will want to see your children in. The denim overalls look amazing, pieces you would love to be wearing too.

The weather has started to change and although we’re glad the sun hasn’t gone completely, a cooler night means we can snuggle up in The Bright Company pyjamas. The Bright Company was founded in 2012 by Alienor Falconer and are proud to fly the Brit flag for design and production is all done here.
The unisex designs have strong graphic prints and great colour palettes for all your lil’ ones. The slim jyms are snug fitting so they don’t ride up in the night or during play. The brand have recently introduced bedding range to match the seasons pj’s too, which have been a great success. The Bright Company currently cater for ages 0-5years and we couldn’t be happier to have them on Lil’ Beans.
Below is our mini q&a with Ali:
Where and who do you live with?
I live in Brighton with my two kids, Corwin 3 1/2 and Effie 1 1/2 and my husband Simon.
TBC pj’s have had great print designs from day 1, what inspires you?
Thanks! That is a tricky and an easy answer really. Nothing specific, the whole world inspires me, patterns I see on tiles, colour combinations I see anywhere and everywhere, interiors, magazines, fashion, I find inspirations all around, I’m never switched off from that side of my brain I suppose.
Motherhood and running a business can be challenging, have you achieved a happy balance yet? What is your current favourite thing to do as a family?
Some days the balance is amazing, some days it’s tricky. We have pretty complicated Childcare but as my ‘job’ can be pretty flexible it works for us. I love being able to take my big one to pre-school every morning. I work 4 days a week (plus evenings etc!) but every day I spend part of it with the children, be it breakfast or dinner or the afternoon.
Our family weekends usually consist of some beach time and the kids love swimming so that’s usually on the agenda. We also love checking out National Trust places and have had some brilliant camping trips this summer. We are also talking about buying a boat so if we get that then I imagine lots of sailing trips!
Here’s an opportunity for you to be twinsies with your little ones. Minnetonka (which I LOVE and are so comfy) have teamed with Hello Kitty for a limited edition collection.
There are a few colours and two style of shoe to choose from, a shoe and the boot. The fringing on the boots have cute Hello Kitty faces printed on them.
It’s for Hello Kitty’s 40th Anniversary, who knew she was that old!
Happy weekend x
