The Vintage Sweetheart Dress Review

Having four girls I guess it comes as no surprise that they are really into clothes. Each of them has their own unique style, already choosing their outfits by themselves and having an opinion on what they think looks good. What's good is that even though they seem typically girly, they don't conform to the girls must wear pink, mixing it up with different colours and patterns. When The Vintage Sweetheart got in touch asking if I'd like to review one of their handmade dresses, it was tough deciding who would receive it. In the end I decided my seven year old should get to choose a dress, she does end up with a lot of second hand clothes so it was nice for her to get something of her own, something that you won't find on the high street. 


Before I review the stunning piece we were sent let me tell you a little bit about the company. Run by the lovely Emily, The Vintage Sweetheart create wonderful handmade dresses for babies and girls ranging from 0-3 months up to age 13-14. Each dress produced by The Vintage Sweetheart is made with absolute love and care in the UK using the highest quality cotton and each one is named after some very important people in Emily's life. With every item sold they donate £3 to Mango Tree, a children's charity in India and they are suitable for whatever occasion you are looking to wear them to.

Read With Me #12 2017

Hello everyone, welcome to this weeks Read With Me. I hope everyone has had a chance to read at least one book in the week just gone. 


I've been making my way through the book More Things in Heaven and Earth by E.A. Comiskey, I have to admit I have struggled slightly with it as it's not my normal genre but it is rather thought provoking so I'm trying to stick with it.

My Sunday Photo 2017 #12

So we missed World Book Day, not because we forgot about it but because their school dedicates a whole week to books a little later on. Monday just gone was the day they got to dress up and here they are in all their glory.

My Mother's Day Wish List

Mother's Day, it comes around every year and it is a day where mothers should all be celebrated, the mums to be, the mums already bossing it and the mums who sadly are no longer with us. It is a day to celebrate those maternal bonds and the influence mothers have on society.

Now every year I look forward to handmade cards and gifts from my children, I keep each and every one as they are things to cherish forever however this doesn't stop me from wanting things that kids definitely can't afford to buy me.

Here's a small wish list of items that could maybe give some inspiration to those out there wondering what gifts to buy their mums.

Now I had the pleasure of receiving a delivery of flowers from Beards & Daisies at Christmas, I was that impressed that I ordered more flowers for my Nana on her birthday. So I wouldn't mind a bunch of their pink champagne Mother's day flowers delivered to my door.

I've seen a lot of people talking about the idea of hygge, that well known art of creating intimacy, making a comfortable environment. I love the feelings that this can envoke so I'd like to opportunity to make my home just that little more cosy. The bedroom seems like a good place to start and I think I can do this with a little help from Cable & Cotton, I've already been fiddling with colour schemes.

Mila & Pheebs Subscription Box Review

I don't think that it is a secret that I am a huge stationery addict, I mean I currently have 4 planners on the go. Now this is another obsession (like my love of books), that I've kindly passed onto my children so when I was asked if I'd like to review one of Mila & Pheebs subscription boxes for kids stationery and activities I wasn't the only one jumping at the chance.


These fantastic boxes can be purchased on a monthly subscription for the low low price of £10 a month, on a 3 month subscription or on a 6 month subscription. Each month you receive your box, through the letter box I might add, no missed post and in them you will receive a brilliant mix of quirky stationery and activities to go alongside them all following a certain theme.
