Helen Moore faux fur & skating at Somerset House

OK, so the skating bit was more observational on my part than actually donning the boots and stepping onto the ice but I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to the potential for injury and as I’m more than a little clumsy I thought it best to just take in the festive atmosphere […]

The festive edit

m&co festive edit | cocomamastyle

M&Co. asked me to put together a festive edit featuring my top 10 picks to see you through to the end of the year.  I mention them fairly regularly on here as they have some real gems on the website and at an affordable price – each item here is under £60.  So without further […]

Last minute gifts & stocking fillers from Hema

20141217-060854.jpg

What is it about cool European brands? They just get it so right when it comes to inexpensive, well, stuff. I’d heard a lot about Dutch brand Hema recently and particularly its quirky stationery (who doesn’t love a neon notebook?!) but I had no idea how much more there was to the store. I was […]

New launch | Petit Bateau x Cédric Charlier

petit bateau x cedric charlier cocomamastyle

Any brand which features stripes as their signature is a favourite in my book and when a designer collaboration is mentioned, my style radar really sounds the alarm.  Tomorrow Petit Bateau launch their second collaboration in as many months (did you see the adorable Petit Bateau x Fifi Lapin tees?) and this time it’s with […]

Christmas jumpers: your festive must-have

christmas jumper day

You can’t have missed that this Friday is Christmas Jumper Day, a relatively recent annual event to raise funds for Save The Children, a great cause.  I’m sure many schools and nurseries, like ours, will be encouraging little ones to rock up in their best festive knit for a donation to charity.  Of course you […]

Coco Mama meets | Mini Madam & Mini Gent

MM&MG

I love hearing about new start-ups by mums who’ve been inspired by their experiences of motherhood to create something new or unique.  As well all know, becoming a mum does give you a new perspective on life, and how many times have you thought ‘I wish I could buy…’ or ‘I wish someone made…’. One […]

Wear it now | Tassel jewellery

It may be the season for sparkle and jewels but if you’re more a fan of boho than bling take a look at the crop of tassel necklaces, earrings and bracelets around right now.  Tasseled jewellery is a micro trend that’s set to continue into next spring/summer so get in on the act now with […]

New mama must-have | teething necklaces

Do you ever come up with what feels like a genius idea, only to discover someone’s already thought of it? I certainly did when I thought to myself “what I need is a necklace my teething baby can chew” and yes, they already exist! It turns out that fellow mum, Suzy, also had this idea […]
