Lumiere London 14th-17th Jan

Posted on by

If anything is going to brighten up January, this is.  From Thursday to Sunday this week (14th-17th) you can see light installations in London by some of the world’s mose exciting artists.  The installations will be across the West End and Kings Cross for 4 evenings and it’s absolutely FREE!

You’ll be able to see many installations like a light garden in Leicester Square, floating creatures around Piccadilly, light graffiti in Kings Cross which is interactive with your phone torch and much much more.

Quinn + Fox Arrives

Posted on by

Californian brand, Quinn + Fox arrives and goes live a week today!  We’re super excited to be one of their UK stockists this season.  As with their previous collections, items are made in limited quantities so once they’ve gone that’s it.  We are especially loving the Bandit Bear jumper.


Stock will go live on the shop in the afternoon, so make sure you make a note to look.

Remember we will also be at the London Mothers Club event this Sunday, we’d love you to come and say Hi.  It’s sure to be a jam packed day, full of fun and treats.

Happy weekend x


Go visit LatteMama’s pop up

Posted on by


LatteMama are having a pop up on the Kings Road from 15th – 28th August, in conjunction with Popup Britain.  A great part of London for a bit of shopping and a chance to browse through some cool AW13 stock, from the likes of Mini Rodini and Indikidual.  Our Lil’ Beans/Le Gun t-shirts will be there with the lovely LatteMama too, so you you can add a bit of guilt free shopping in to the mix, as all profits of them go to charity.  A visit is a definite must.

Happy weekend x

We like the collections from Danish brand Gro.  The collection conisists of clothing for boys and girls age 0-10yrs.  They are made using lovely soft fabrics organic cotton, fine woven cord and cashmere. The designs are contemporary and comfortable, with some sweet prints.

New local food market for South London!

Posted on by


So, this Saturday 11th May 2013 sees the opening of a weekly food market in Crystal Palace.  As a local, this is rather exciting.  Quite a few of my friends like to go to local food markets on a weekend, take a wander and taste locally made treats.  It’s great to do with kids too, especially when the weather is nice (fingers crossed for sun on Saturday).

You can make advanced orders and collect produce from some stall holders, which is a great idea and many stalls are on a rotation.  Also, a great idea as it gives variety from week to week for customers and allows many great local producers a chance to get familiar with and support from the community.

If you are a South Londoner and foodie then take a trip to Crystal Palace and support the small businesses!  Also, a tip for the 1st June sees the amazing treats from Cookie & Biscuit on the market.  A take on classic American deliciousness, NOT to be missed!
