18.09.12 Shop Talk: Little Bees

I have driven past this little shop and was always desperate to go in and take a peek, and then I did. It did not disappoint. Outside wigwams sit with wooden play shops and tills luring you in to see more. It’s the kind of place you always want to go when you are looking for something really nice for a little someone special, maybe something you wouldn’t have found very easily elsewhere and they like wood. Hey guess what? So do I.

10.09.12 Some girls like pink: My Room – Jess

Jess is 8. Apart from being polite, caring and very beautiful, she’s a girl with a love a pink! She lives with her mum, dad and two younger brothers. At some point in the near future her room is due for a revamp but at this moment in time she’s living the pink dream. A bright pink dream!

My mum got this ‘Jessie J’ picture made for me with all my favourite colours. Someone she works with designed it. I’m Jessie J and so is my favourite pop star!

This make up box was a present for my birthday . I’m allowed to wear it on weekends and when I go dancing. My favourite colours are pink, blue and purple.

04.09.12 Some girls like pink: Barbie or Sindy?

Some girls like pink. Me? Well I like it in small doses but I’m not sure I could cope with a whole room of pink in the house but some girls LOVE it. This is a little series on the pink stuff.

When i was little we had a Sindy bed and wardrobe, a horse and some other bits. We loved Sindy because well she was like Barbie but a bit more …shall we say ‘real’. These days i look at some of the current Barbie paraphernalia out there and it just doesn’t seem as well made as the old stuff. Their legs aren’t always made of that soft rubbery material and some of the furniture looks more monstrosity than sweet. That’s just me though. In my house we have a small collection of vintage Barbies’ and their clothes! Plus a horse and a few newer additions but that’s about it. If your kids LOVE all that stuff but you don’t want a large plastic kingdom with a zillion breakable doors what do you buy? Well a vintage Sindy house of course!
