We’re excited to have opened the doors to our week’s pop up at Fount London.  It’s an exciting new spot in Hackney, opposite Netil Market and a few minutes from the very busy and popular Broadway Market.  The weather is due to be dry and bright, so hoping to see lots of new visitors and regulars.

We are offering an exclusive 20% off clothing for those that come and see us there, and have two great workshops on Friday and Saturday.

On Friday we have a workshop with Tomato Tutors at 2pm, donation of £5 which they will give to Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.

Creative Connection
by Present Parenting for Tomato Tutors

Beautiful creative play hour to encourage bonding, relaxation and simple connection between parent and child. This short and sweet Autumnal nature paint & play hour. All you need to bring are leaves you have gathered from nature.

On Saturday we have a Halloween Craft morning and afternoon workshop with Infant Art Club as well as face painting and some treats.

We also have the Tiba + Marl new kids backpacks in store for you to pre-order exclusively too, which are amazing!

Please come and say Hi, your support is massively appreciated x

Made these vegan bars

Posted on by

Super quick and super easy (perfect), I tried out these vegan protein bars today.

Screen Shot 2014-11-03 at 19.00.00They were really tasty, a good sweet hit.  I forgot to oil my muffin tray, so it stuck a bit.  But I’ll use the broken bits and crumbs as granola so no waste.

1 1/2cups quinoa flakes
1/4 cup ground flaxseeds
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp brown rice syrup
1/2 cup chopped apricots
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Mix all of the ingredients above, together in a bowl.  Then squash down in to a lightly oiled tin or muffin tray.  Place in the oven for 30minutes at 190°C until golden.  Once cool, cut in to rectangles if used a tin or just ease out the disc shapes from your muffin tray and eat.

I hope you had a good Halloween weekend, we had some fun!

Stellaween!

Stelle McCartney is in the spirit with her capsule ‘Stellaween‘ collection.  We love the playful prints and illustrations by London based artist Rose Black.  The ‘Arlo’ T Shirt (pumpkin) is not only perfectly packaged with a specially printed cotton bag, but for each t-shirt sold a donation will be given to Padem (Programmes d’Aide et e Development destines aux Enfants du Monde) for the expansion of school and development of economic activities in Kenya.  T-minus 6 days to go …

Brio bits

We all love a bit of Brio.  Here are a few of our picks, as there are always gifts to buy and some of us have started to think about Christmas.

We’ve added a few new things to the shop this week.  Some gorgeous neon stars and stripes for lil’ ones by Berlin based Noe & Zoe, which we absolutely LOVE.  More stock from this brand will arrive at the end of the month too!

Also unisex tights from Irish brand Slugs & Snails.  The ghouls are in time for Halloween, my lil’ bean had a version of these last year and loved the little ghosts and colours.

Aside from the shop, I ordered a colour card from Farrow & Ball today and came across a children’s book they have done.  Painted of course using Farrow & Ball paints, it has been released as a limited edition of 1000, telling the story of it’s new colours.
