School Bags

The Summer holidays are slowly coming to an end. I have managed to get all of Pops school uniform but have yet to get her a school bag. Ahhh where do you start!! I think if Pops had her way it would come from Disney and would feature princesses. I'm not that keen and have said that she is allowed a pink one but finding one is a bigger problem than i realised. As most places seem to have sold out!!
The ones I love are a lot of money and I am  a little loathed to spend £60/70.

Brita Sweden Rugs

I have been looking for runners for my kitchen and came across this company selling rugs and runners. They are plastic woven so are perfect for the kitchen or hallway. They come in a fantastic range of colours and patterns. You can get them from the scandinavian design centre.

Biker Jacket

I got my first leather biker jacket from Top Shop about 6 years ago. It has been my staple jacket ever since. I have practically lived in it. This spring the leather tore and its now time to go on the market for a new one. Do I go with or without colar, boxy or slim fit!! Aahh the choices are endless. I really think its going to take a while for me to find the one. But here is a good starting point.

Caramel Baby and Child

This is a label that is beyond my reach and something that I admire from afar. But i have discovered their sale. They have selected sizes and what they do have isn't cheap but it is very reasonable considering the original price tags. I got Pops a dress that she can wear to parties. Its so lovely. Do give the site a look, the clothes are beautiful.  http://www.caramel-shop.co.uk/

When Pops was born I gave up on house plants. I had visions of her as a toddler pulling them over and eating them. There is no way I can have them with Taylor. He is far too adventurous and far to inquisitive. They wouldn't last 5 mins. We have a lovely shop near us called Botany its a florist and homeware store.  They sell the most beautiful small plants and cactus. They have given me a new love of plants. I recently came across these plant holders and really want them in my home. They are so stylish. They come from Hollys House and the are very reasonably priced.

Since Poppy saw an episode of peppa pig where they holiday in a camper van she keeps asking if we can go away in one. You can hire camper vans for holidays pretty much everywhere. I recently came across this company hiring them out in Kent. 
There is definitely a romantic idea of being free to go from beach to beach.They have 3 Vans. The one featured here is Blossom it sleeps 4 ( one bunk and a double) They include lots of extras from duvets, washing up liquid and sponges, tea towels, cooking utensils, insurance, breakdown cover etc etc. Its very reasonably priced and i think the kids would really love it.
