Zalando Clothing Review

Zalando have the biggest selection of designer clothing for men, women and children as well as home decor and more. When you hear the word designer you think £££ right, Zalando provide you with fab deals and affordable prices so you can look stylish without breaking the bank! Their collections are current and on trend, you will find everything you need in this one place and with prices starting at £2 you cant go wrong!

We were given a voucher to use online to get some clothing, we chose these two outfits for Abbie and here is our experience with Zalando..

Ordering is super easy, you are told when items are in stock before ordering and you can receive emails about when youre favourite items are back in stock so you dont miss out! I placed my order and it arrived within the 3-5 days delivery promise (which is FREE y the way!), all packaged carefully and arrived in no less than perfect condition!

We chose this cute summery outfit by Tricky Tracks for Abbie, a gorgeous striped sleeveless top with a pretty orange bow and some matching orange leggings to complete the outfit!


The next item we chose was this adorable kitten short sleeved tshirt, as soon as I saw it I had to get it, Abbie has an obsession with cats at the moment, there are two that live close to us who always come over and say hello, Abbie doesn't stop smiling or clapping, they love her! This shirt is lovely and thin whilst ensuring comfort at the same time, made from 100% makes it super soft too!


The final outfit we chose was again from Tricky Tracks, it was a pretty floral strappy top with cute little ruffles and bows! With matching pink leggings complete with little bows secured on the hem, perfect for the summer but also as it is strapless you can add a little cardigan for the cooler days, without getting bunched up sleeves! Not that babies care but hey!

I've been looking for something special for Abbie to give to her on her 18th Birthday, something that she would be able to keep and maybe even pass down to her children..I then had the opportunity to review an item of my choice by TreatRepublic, if you're a regular reader of my blog you'll know how much I love the company Treather.com, well they have actually now merged their 2 other sister sites together so all their amazing gifts are now in one place, now called Treat Republic! With gifts for Men, women & children.

We decided to choose this beautiful pearl bracelet, it is made from freshwater pearls and has a delicate sterling silver charm attached ready for your personalisation! As you can see we chose the letter A for Abbie, but you can choose up to 6 characters or even have a special date engraved instead!


 I am in love with this bracelet, it's just so beautiful and elegant, a timeless piece of jewellery perfect for any occassion! As i said above, this is going to be a hand me down to Abbie, so for now I'll b wearing it all the time, then when that 18th birthday comes along I'm going to be so excited to pass it onto her :)

BabyBeau Ellie Tan Changing Bag Review

 I can't even contain my excitement for this post, ahhhh!  You may have seen my review on BabyBeau.com, click here to take a look! Well we were very kindly sent the gorgeous Ellie Tan Changing Bag to review! Now, as I've stated before, I've never been a major handbag kind of girl, that was until I had Abbie and there was an array of baby bags to choose from and I now have to pry myself away from looking as I think I'm addicted..



I don't even know where to start really, apart from squealing with excitement I guess I can start by saying Wow, it is beautiful, stylish, pretty, practical, fashionable and quite honestly stunning! It is a two toned glamourous leather bag which is perfect for all seasons, be it rain or sun! It is so spacious inside, you can quite easily carry everything you need for yourself and baby in there with space for more, sure you might look like Mary Poppins when you start taking things out but hey.






The main section is secured with a zip and magnetic fastening to keep everything together. It can even be worn 3 seperate ways, cross body, handheld or on the shoulder!


Details/Accessories;
Two tone/colour blocking
Gold hardware
20cm handle drop
Shoulder strap
Secure back zip pocket
Babybeau organiser
Water resistant interior
Leatherette changing mat & bottle holder
Detachable zip pocket pouch
Dust bag
Converts into a regular handbagLeather key holder



One of my favourite features is the practicality of it, especially the flat bottom, it ensures that the bag stays upright and organised, there's nothing more annoying than putting your bag down and everything rolls out of it! 



My second favourite thing is the changing mat that comes with it, I never thought i'd find myself describing one as this but it's well, beautiful! It keeps in theme with the style of the bag, with the leatherette exterior & wipe clean striped interior, it's just perfect!



I seriously cannot recommend this bag enough, it will last for years and years & just about goes with every outfit! Treat yourself or even hint to your partner! :)


The insert lining also doubles up as a seperate bag! Perfect to use as a washing bag, handbag or beach bag!




What's even better about the Ellie changing bag is that you can take out the insert bag and everything else and it is a fabulous tote style bag, lots of space for everything you need, perfect for a weekend away :)

Little Bird Told Me Review



Little bird told me are a superb site run by a team of nursery specialists, they are highly dedicated to make the world of little people and grown ups that little but more special. With a collection of fab activity toys such as playgyms, rocking animals and also nursery accessories and 'baby on board signs!'. I love that they also think of the environment, where possible they will use easily recyclable or biodegradable materials. You will notice too that they do not use electronic or battery powered functions on anything, saves you money, saves your electricity and helps save the planet I guess! Your product will come beautifully gift wrapped using Eco friendly packaging too! 




1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 /8


Each item is made from the highest quality materials to ensure your little one can enjoy it for years to come (or even be passed onto the next one). With ranges such as "Hey Bear, it's me bear", "Curious caterpillar and friends" & "The Billowy Butterfly Collection"




We were very kindly sent the 'Softy Snail' Baby on board sign to try out, I love the design and concept of using a snail too, I remember how carefully and slowly Ben drove home from the hospital after Abbie was born, like a snail...much to the annoyance of other cars but hey, safety first! I love the pastel colours and that it is so much cuter than other baby on board signs, it's now hanging proudly in our little family car :)







"Softly Snail takes care of her little one whilst on the move! With a rubberised suction cup, she is easily secured to any vehicle window and will gently sway to catch the attention of other road users"
