We Love Squirrels…

“We Love Squirrels” is a great online boutique to check out if you’re looking for something a little bit different for your little one to wear. Featuring Scandinavian inspired wear and animal patterns – largely squirrels obviously – the clothes are bright and colourful designs, perfect for grey winter days.

The team at “We Love Squirrels” sent my newest guest reviewer a dress and legging set to review from the Little Green Radicals range. The ‘Woodland Smock‘ features a gorgeous embroidered scene around the bottom which includes lots of squirrels, and the matching ‘Teaberry Button Leggings‘ are a versatile pink colour with button details on the cuffs. Both items are made from 100% organic cotton so its super soft to touch – essential on Little Daisy Doo’s skin.

Do you think Little Daisy Doo likes her new outfit?

I think the grin says it all doesn’t it?

If you’re looking for something for the little boy in your life then I highly recommend this great nautical shoes from Poco Nido. They are suede soles so are ideal for those first tentative steps, and I LOVE the design.

“We Love Squirrels” features some great unique brands. As well as the ones mentioned above you can also find fantastic items from Red Urchin, Toby Tiger and Beau LOves. They also offer FREE UK delivery which is excellent news for all you shopaholics out there!

“We Love Squirrels” can also be found on Twitter so get following @WeLoveSquirrels for all the latest news.

Introducing My Little Pickle!!!

Tomorrow (September 2nd) sees the launch of “My Little Pickle” – an online boutique selling clothing for 0-2 year olds.  
Set up by Sarah Sherlock following the birth of her first child, Sarah wants to fill what she saw as a gap in the UK baby clothing market.  She was disappointed with the clothing choice available to her, and after a trip to Europe she discovered that there were clothes out there that she needed to bring to this country.  “A trip to Europe confirmed how limited the range of childrenswear is in the UK, and I decided to bring the choice, quality and styles available to our market.”
As well as providing a wide range of designs and pieces that you won’t find on your high street Sarah is keen to provide ethical clothing, and her website also boasts a fantastic range of organic clothing, something she thinks is important for parents. “Ethical issues are more important in the babywear market than in other clothing markets, reflecting the heightened awareness of young, educated mothers.”  

Above all Sarah wants to bring beautiful products to parents and their children. “My objective is to provide customers with the best products and service. We are committed to bringing fresh, colourful and exciting new brands from around the world to the UK, and I hope you love the result as much as I do” 

In addition to the gorgeous clothes and fun footwear “My Little Pickle” also sells a range of accessories including towels, blankets, socks and tights, and a selection of soft and knitted toys.
Here is a selection of my personal favourites from the boutique:
