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 […]

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 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 […]

Must-have children’s coats from Lands’ End

It’s always great to get personal recommendations when it comes to those key investment purchases where you need something to function perfectly, particularly with kid’s coats.  We want them to be hard wearing, long-lasting and keep our little ones warm and dry throughout the winter, so I wanted to share with you a top purchase we […]
