Monochrome magic for kids

Monochrome. You had me at monochrome. All day, ever day I want the world to wear monochrome.

When it comes to dressing my 2 boys, I tend to lean heavily in the black, white and grey direction. Call it safe, but it’s fail safe.

The trick is to find cool, interesting designs to make the lack of colour come to life. There are no rules to dressing your babies, that is the best part! I’ve found some amazing brands (some tried and tested!) who do the sweetest, swaggiest, monochrome magic to make your kids look well put together while still keeping their kid factor.

I've found the perfect prints for your kids

I love discovering new cool homewares for kids – and I’ve made a discovery! Keton Kids make gorgeous prints for kids rooms and they come in the most amazing colours, designs and quotes. So cute in fact, that I own  two for my boys. Hudson loves the movie The  Wizard of Oz, so he has the Lions & Tigers & Bears Oh My! print and Archer has the sling shot – so cute!

Playkids App…Kids and Technology!


Being a mum of 2, and one that likes to shower, drink hot tea and travel on planes and in cars in peace with my kids, I have found that engaging and educational apps can be a savior at times for a moment of quiet! A few months ago I was asked to become the ambassador for an app called PlayKids and so, to decide whether to personally represent the app, I started investigating and found – to my surprise – that I already had the PlayKids app on my phone! I realised it was the same app that my 3 year old Hudson already really enjoyed playing with.

QV Baby & Kids


I was a little bit excited when I discovered that QV was doing a baby/kids range of body products. I was already a huge fan of their adult Face Moisturising Day cream and used it frequently on myself and my clients when I did their make up. It works on all skin types, has SPF 30+ protection, it’s pH-balanced, it’s low on the irritant, free from fragrance, colour and lanolin and isn’t greasy.
