Roco Clothing: Beautiful Occasion Wear for Children

When it comes to clothing, Emma prefers casual and comfortable, as a rule of thumb. Over the years, we have been gifted several outfits for her which ended up in the wardrobe, never worn. But recently, she has been into princesses and fairies and things glittery and feminine and I did think it a good time to try her with some fancy dress from the lovely Roco Clothing people. If you are not familiar with the name or the website, Roco Clothing is the to go place for anything occasion wear, from christening outfits to page boy, communion and waistcoat suits (swoon!) to flower girl, prom and party dresses for children. See what I mean? So, the all important question, what did we order? We have no imminent weddings to attend so I decided to go for a party dress and ocassion wear white shoes for Emma, something that she can wear for birthday parties and for attending special events, like Disney on Ice. I was pleasantly  surprised to see that prices were within reasonable brackets …

Angel’s Face: A Review

I have become very selective with my reviews in the past few months for a number of reasons. One, and the most important, has been the lack of time due to a (nearly, towards the end of June) full-time job in education. The other has been the subsequent desire to act professionally, not letting brands and PRs down with delayed or very late posts. I therefore decided to accept for reviewing only products I absolutely loved and could dedicate an hour to writing a beautiful, heartfelt blog post on. And Angel’s Face has been absolutely one of those and more! I loved their name from the very beginning and saw it as perfectly befitting for Emma. At the end of the day, she has a little angel of a brother in heaven and wearing something that would remind us of Georgie is always a privilege and encouraged in our home! Emma was sent an absolutely gorgeous Neon Pink Tutu Skirt and a sweet, sweet t-shirt. We loved the beautiful hat box packaging the tutu arrived …

Princess Emma’s T-shirt Review

This week, the lovely people at buytshirtsonline sent Emma a Disney princess kit to review. Emma is 5 and still very much into her princesses and fairy tale endings so as soon as the parcel arrived, she started pestering me relentlessly to assist her in making her own personalised t-shirt. We were out yesterday but this morning we decided it was time to give our creativity a go! The instructions were clear and easy to follow: we cut out the princess shape, leaving a 5 mm edge around the picture. We used the kitchen table as a hard surface to work on and a folded pillowcase to place our t-shirt on. Alex got the iron out and got the t-shirt all wrinkle free. The next step was simply applying our cut out princess, face down, of course, on the t-shirt and passing the hot iron over it for about two minutes. Emma was very pleased with the result but wanted to add her own touch to it, once it cooled off. We were a bit …
