WauWaa and Frugi – Review

Frugi logo new

If you have never heard of Frugi, you can find out about their amazing organic children’s clothing here . And if like me, you have and know how simply amazing they are then you can check out there range now available at WauWaa .

When I was asked to road test an item from Frugi’s new range I almost squealed with excitement! I didn’t  for fear of the pooch going postal and licking me half to death but I could barely contain said excitement. Ive had a few Frugi pieces for the girls over the years but only ever bought them second hand so this was a real treat!

I choose the super stylish Camper Van Dress and I can hear you all now screaming, “Why isn’t this in my size?!” Well sadly it isn’t… YET! But you can still ogle that little lady of yours in this stylish number and barely feel duped.

My little lady simply could not wait to get it on ( as you can see from the chocolate stained face and bruised shins!) and has had to be prised out of it every time it requires washing. Who can blame her tho when its a beautiful fit, looks amazing and feels divine on the skin!

I simply adore the packaging it comes in, makes the whole experience that little bit more magical, who doesn’t love cute packaging! And the label is gorgeous, a work of art if you ask me. I simply adore brands that take that little bit of thought on their packaging for children’s clothes, it makes everyone feel spoilt.

We have had this dress for almost a week now and its been worn almost every day and washed and dried on the radiator. It hasn’t lost its shape and neither has any of the colours bled, it hasn’t shrunk and with each wash it still looks as glorious as the day we received it.

I genuinely don’t have one bad thing to say about the cute little camper van dress or Frugi. For the £27 this dress retails at if I had gone out and bought it I would still be over the moon. It’s very rare to buy something this soft  that will continue to hold its shape after the abuse the 4 year old puts it through along with the continuous washing and drying in doors.

And for the boys, check out this bad boy . This has to be the greatest tshirt I have EVER seen!

Check Frugi out now, available at WauWaa as a permanent brand. Which will you choose?

*The Camper Van dress was sent to me free of charge, all opinions are my own*

Sweet Tooth.. featuring @sweetjunkie

As some of you may already know..(yeah you know who u r!!) i have a terrible sweet tooth!  My biggest affliction being CAKE! and yes right now you’re all sat there thinking god she must be fat! Well sorry to disappoint but no, even after 3 kids and gorging I’m still only a size 8! much to my own dismay!
Right where was i… yes, when i saw a tweet pop up on my timeline from @sweetjunkie asking for bloggers to take part i more than jumped all over it! I’m a sucker for sweets.. yeah defo got fillings!!.. and retro sweets just close the deal for me! then on top of that being sugar free..lets just say i almost passed out from hyperventilating!!! so as you do i answered the tweet and to my surprise they very kindly offered to send me some to try for a review on my little humble blog 🙂

Well, they arrived swiftly and well packaged, (in fact we where out when the post man came so i had to send the hubby to go collect them for me on a saturday, he wasn’t best pleased especially after waiting in line for 20 mins!!) , and i couldn’t wait to open them! they are all individually wrapped in clear plastic bags with a fabulous sweet junkie stickers,  they where beautifully box and wrapped in brown paper,so retro and so very cute, i fell in love straight away!

i put them aside for a time when i was child free for more than 5 mins then opened the sour apples… my total FAVES anyway!
Well, OMG they are gorgeous!!! lovely full flavour, total childhood flash backs and definitely kinder on the hips as well as the teeth! 
Being a sugar addict i did worry they would lack that taste and punch of full sugar sweets but i was delightfully surprised that even after five mins of sucking these beauties, the flavour lasts and you really wouldn’t know they where sugar free!
Their website http://www.sweetjunkie.com/ is the cutest thing ever! It has a vast array of sweets, all sugar free of course, and even has a dental advice link!! The sweets are all fabulously priced and even with postage starting at £3.95, for how well and beautifully wrapped they came i would happily pay that for a box full of retro sweeties! They even have a request a sweet! How cool is THAT!!! AND… you can even pay by Paypal!!! What more could you actually ask for, fabulous sweets, fabulous prices and more payment options than you can shake a stick at! OMG they even do sugar mice!!
just excuse me while i rush over and spend all my pennies….. see ya there!!!

is it me???

Another hideously early morning with the girls, a featured page on etsy just gone, no sales for another day and i feel like throwing in the towel!
Everywhere you go online or in store to browse fashion stores, and its there, jewellery just like mine or dare i say it horrible, at disgusting prices yet im struggling to get ppl interested! notonthehighstreet.com told me no and it feels much like the straw that broke the camels back. I kno its hard and i kno it needs determination and drive, those i have, but that thing im missing to get ppl going crazy about it, that i seriously DONT have! Im not being greedy, i do ok selling privately and not to bad thru etsy at times but this isnt about money its about noteriety for what i do! i want someone to come along and go WOW! maybe its me, maybe i just dont have that creative spark, that touch thats just out of the norm that get ppl looking and spreading the word!
God i sound like my mother, a moaning old hag!!!
well ill leave u with that, while the future of chic unique hangs in the balance, i know we have all had moments where it all seems a bit much, maybe its 6 months of sleep deprivation, maybe its boredom, maybe im just ungrateful, maybe i just need help i cant get…..
