These little lights are so stinking cute! They are all individually made by hand in Australia and give the loveliest glow through the tiny windows and door. Billie loves it so much and will say goodnight to the fairies before she turns it off at night. They come in a range of colours and with a LED light, it can be used all night long safely.
These lights come from Little Belle and cost $149.95, although if you follow her on Instagram @littlebellelight you can hear about sales and giveaways. The site also has some great inspiration, some of the above photos are from their Instagram page. ☺︎
We don't watch a lot of television at our house which makes it easier for me to justify using an iPad when out and about. It's very hard for a 2 year old to be expected to sit still at a cafe for long periods of time. I also use the iPad for those car journeys when I'm trying to keep my daughter awake so she has a proper sleep at home.
For a while I was just giving her the iPad but her fingers would always accidentally hit the screen which would pause the show she was watching, or wonder to the home screen button, also ending in Billie being upset and having to start all over again. One of my friends told me about the iGuy and we love it. Not only are the arm's great handles for little hands, but it's feet are sturdy so its able to stand on flat surfaces. The silicone case is also great as ours gets dropped... a lot.
They come in a range of colours and you can get them all over. I chose to get mine from eBay and they cost around $30. You can get them in all the different sizes of iPad's Definitely worth every cent. ☺︎
This is a Christmas version of the Jolly Postman, also by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. The Jolly Postman delivers christmas packages and cards to different fairytale characters. The book is interactive for children as they get to pull out the various surprises from the envelopes. It also gives a little insight into what the characters are up to since their fairytale stories have ended. Some of the letters include a game called 'beware,' from Mr. Wolf to Red Riding Hood, and a Christmas card to baby bear from Goldilocks and her sister.
For a festive, fun and imaginative book, you can't go past 'The Jolly Christmas Postman'.☺︎
Mem Fox is a household name when it comes to children's literature. If you have a look through your own collections at home you will be sure to have one of her many books and if they are like mine, deep creases line the bindings as they have been read and read and read again.
Time for bed is a beautiful bed time story with sing-song text and magical illustrations by Jane Dyer. If your little one is hanging from the ceilings before bed, reading this book has a happy, sleepy effect which calms, soothes and sends them right off to sleep. My little ones eyes get heavy from about the 3rd page in. It's like magic! ☺︎
I purchased this Mocka Soho Highchair when my daughter was 7 months old. She is now 2 and still uses it and LOVE it every day.
If your child has sensitive skin like mine than this could be the answer for you.
At my baby shower, the guests were all asked to bring a book instead of the usual baby gift. Something I cannot recommend enough. We now have a library of beautiful books that have all been chosen by the gorgeous friends and family in my children’s lives.
Kissed by the moon was immediately one of my favourites. Alison Lester writes in a sing-song tone that is both uplifting and soothing to little ears. “May you my baby, follow the rivers, wander the mountains…and walk in the wild”. Her illustrations are magical with a subtle emphasis on Australian landscaping and wildlife. A lovely book to add to your goodnight routine.
From the age of 18 months my daughter worked out how she could take her arms our of her car seat straps. This new little trick is incredibly dangerous and worrisome. I soon learnt that it is a common mile stone that children reach. I immediately started doing some research and found these clever little gadgets, the houdini stop. The strap is super simple to apply, doesn't grate on the straps and is strong enough that it's not easily moved- meaning less chance of chocking your precious little ones. It has been safety tested in Australia and New Zealand, all with great results. You can pick them up at different baby stores, such as baby bunting, for around $20. I think it's the best $20 I've ever spent for piece of mind. ☺︎
This super cute helmet from Nutcase will have you kids thinking safety first. My daughter got this helmet from her grandparents on her 2nd birthday. I can barely get her to take it off for her bath. Being part of their 'baby nutty range,' it is specially designed for small noggins. They come in a range of amazing colours and designs and my favourite part- the magnetic, no pinch, no tears buckle. Genius!
The nutcase range starts from 12 months and goes up to adult sizes. They range in price from $99 to $129.95 and they even have a snow helmet range. They also have a self proclaimed 'integrated smile and compliment generator'. From experience this is only too true. ☺︎
Product of the week is really a teepee set up that we have in my daughters room made up of a few beautiful products. I really wanted to have a quiet space in Billie's room for a few different reasons...
