Anyone who follows us on Instagram will already know about my recent trip to Mamas & Papas in Westfield. And no, I wasn’t invited by them to go in to review it – I just happened to be in Westfield, and wanted to pop in as I knew they’d recently had a bit of a store makeover. I literally couldn’t believe my eyes. There were stylish (and affordable!!) temptations at every turn! I was particularly impressed by the nursery and bedroom accessories and the toys and gifts (the bird house (number 3) and the pom pom cot mobile (number 1) were probably my favourites – I’m actually considering stock-piling for baby gifts. Is that bad?). So this is what we’re focussing on today. Other favourites included this bunny head to hang on the wall (far less sinister than it sounds!); Miles The SquirrelDaytime DogDaytime Doll. And you might remember from the post on Tabitha and Marlow’s bedroom a couple of weeks ago that I bought the cloud cushion for Marlow’s bed. Even the cards are adorable – thisthisthis one are three of our favourites. Honestly there are actually too many things to include, so take a look for for yourself, or pop into the store next time you’re passing.
Oh, and I almost forgot, we have recently added a Baby Gifts shop to the site. We’ve carefully handpicked the most adorable baby gifts for all budgets (starting from just £10.00, and including some more substantial gifts ideas for friends/colleagues who want to club together to buy a mama-to-be a gorgeous gift). We have all bases covered. Take a look…

Olivier Baby & Kids & Little Spree

8 September 2016

Little Spree and Olivier Baby & Kids

Olivier Baby & Kids is without doubt, one of our favourite independent brands for children. We particularly love the baby collections – you literally want everything (including a new baby to wear it!). Think the softest cashmere in the most beautiful colours, Liberty print frilled blouses, cashmere rompers, ruffle front dresses, striped knits… And not to mention the most adorable accessories – cashmere bonnets, beanies, scarves and mittens. Classic, but not too classic. Traditional, but cleverly designed with a modern edge. Anyway, this is just a tiny selection of our favourite pieces for Autumn/Winter. But don’t just take our word for it – you can see (and feel) the collection for yourself at their first ever Pop Up shop in London – a little treasure trove of discoveries for babies, girls and boys. Edit.58 will also be at the store with a selection of the gorgeous baskets, rugs, cushions and wire words that we all know and love from Instagram. The store opens on Monday 12th September for just two weeks. And on 17th September, we are really excited to be teaming up with Olivier Baby to co-host an exclusive private shopping/press event at their store from 3.00pm-4.30pm. As well as the chance to preview the new collection (entitled ‘Adventure Is Out There’), there will be a delicious afternoon tea, plus sweet entrainment for the kids. And our friend, the lovely Lisa (who we know you all love too) from Edit.58 will  be there too. The event is by invitation only, but we are excited to extend the invite to ten lovely Little Spree readers (plus your little ones of course – you have to bring them!).  We would love to see you! Please email Katie at Olivier Baby & Kids ( if you fancy joining us. Also, one of the ten will be picked at random to win an Olivier Baby & Kids outfit, which can be chosen on the day. We will be on hand (if you need us) to help you choose of course!

Olivier Baby & Kids Pop Up Shop
Monday 12th-Saturday 24th September
Open daily from 10.00am-6.00pm

Little Spree: La Redoute baby collection edit

We love a bit of La Redoute. But particularly the kidswear and the homewear (did you see the gorgeous cushions from Saturday’s post?). But the thing we love the most about La Redoute? The fact that they almost always have some kind of amazing sale on! And right now is one of those times. They currently have a Bank Holiday 30% discount code (ending at midnight tonight), which magically makes everything that was already a bargain, a total bargain! So everything here is showing the pre-sale price (yes really!). We particularly love the baby collections at the moment (although, do bear in mind that most of these things go up to age three, so ‘baby and beyond’ as we like to call it…), and have already done our edit for you (let’s face it, you can lose entire days (and not to mention, the will to live) trawling through websites during sale times, so why bother when you don’t need to?). We have found a mix of mostly new season, as well as some great, late sale bargains (some things are 50% off) for next summer, so get ready for a bit of ‘buy now, stash for later’ action ladies…

ps: if anyone’s interested, I just ordered this storage drawer for underneath Tabarlow’s bunk beds. Perfect for chucking all their crap in that you just want to ‘disappear’ at the end of the day… SC
