Romney Marsh Wools

When Isaac was a baby my sister Eliza bought him some beautiful handmade natural sheepskin booties and they are possibly the cutest thing he’s ever been given.


Although she bought them at a farmers market you can also purchase them online for £20. I received a pair of my own last Christmas and they really do keep your feet toasty!


100% British wool.


Florence & Teddy

Florence & Teddy has just opened in Southbourne, Dorset. Needing a gift for a baby girl due in March I went to take a look.

I particularly like the fact they stock organic and locally made items. Southbourne is by the sea so I thought it fitting to buy this bib with matching shoes.


Good quality and only £5! Here it is in another colour.


Beetles & Bugs

If like me you are always on the lookout for imaginative, ethical children’s clothes I’d highly recommend checking out Beetles & Bugs.

Beetles & Bugs is the creation of designer Brigitte Neve who lives in Vienna. Brigitte and I are from the same rural village in Luxembourg where every house belonged to a different nationality. My personal style is heavily influenced by the continent with a real soft spot for Dutch design.

I adore the simplicity of this mackerel print romper and the fact Brigitte steers away from pastel pink and blue!
