It is not too early to be thinking about Christmas. 2016 really has been arguably quite a depressing old year, and we all need something to feel cheery and good about. At first glanceMulberry‘s new Christmas film “It’s What’s Inside That Counts,” is not what the doctor ordered. It tells the story of a traditional British Christmas starring a fault-finding mother, bickering sisters and a son with a secret.
Stay the course though as all of the roles are played by child actors, giving the storytelling an unexpected twist A story of love and acceptance, the film explores how the return to their childhood home and the spirit of Christmas brings the family together again with the realisation that in the end, it’s what’s inside that counts. Directed by Albert Moya and written by Hugo Guinness (The Grand Budapest Hotel) the sunning piece emerges on the night before Christmas when, in an act of endearing generosity, Rose decides to give her sister her own brand new and much loved Bayswater. I wish I had her as a sister.
Mulberry Creative Director Johnny Coca:
“When I was a kid, all that I wanted to do was to be grown up so I could be like my dad. Now that I am an adult, I just want to be a kid again! Christmas brings out the kid in all of us, and this is what I love about using children to tell our story this year.
The film will be released with a trailer and Part I, followed by Part II later in the month
Hi, I’m Mini Adorngirl and my mum is letting ME take over Mini Adorn Kids. Every week, I’ll be writing posts on what`s cool right now, hilarious pics. videos. and tips and advice on how to deal with certain things e.g. Your demon brother. That pretty much brings us to my first post-How to bear living with your demon brother.
Everyone has something COMPLETELY ANNOYING in their life and for me. that something is my younger brother. The only people who will understand this post are all the older sisters, older brothers or even younger brothers and sisters who have older or younger demon siblings.
Let me guess, are these some of the things your sibling does?
Make irritating noises in your ear?
Do something evil to you and then act all innocent in front of your parents so they don`t get in trouble?
Take something of yours and run away with it?
Touch your stuff?
Break one of your belongings?
Sorry, I didn`t want to use a fancy word like “belonging” but I couldn’t find another word for “stuff.” Well I know how to stop it all.
First of all, if your sibling is making loud noises, simply put on headphones or earphones, it’s sure to make your day quiet. If you don`t have headphones or anything else like it, use a quarter of one toilet paper square, roll it up and voila! Earplugs! Another technique for silence would be the hide and seek scam. All you have to do is convince your sibling to play hide and seek. I know it`s something a six-year old would play but you can at least try. When you count, count the first three numbers and then stop and relax while your brother thinks you’re trying to find him you should have a little while of calm until he finally comes to his senses. As for the rest of the problems, just simply get revenge on him. For instance, do pranks on him like: the hand in the cup of water trick, a moustache on him while he’s sleeping, etc. I love him really, ( my mum made me write that)
Kate Spade NY is a colourful treasure trove of wonderment spanning fashion and home. In the children’s’ department of the newly opened Regent street store is the embodiment of summer and we want to wear it all. Glittery satchels, fresh flower details and mini me fashion, that means we can look as cool as our mum.
This is the third instalment in the series of transitional season dressing for Next kids, showcasing key light autumn pieces the kids can wear right now but will still be plausible when it gets a little colder. Here is my eldest daughter and my son, and now its the twins turn. Continue reading →
Did you see that weather yesterday? It is Britain, so no matter how old this post is, it will definitely mean something. With ever-changing weather and seasons that seem to have an identity crisis, it is important to have an easily transitional wardrobe for the kids.
The Eldest Mini Adorngirl is all about being comfortable and casual, and when she had a chance to choose an outfit from the Next girls Fall range, she went for the long-sleeved layered cat print crew top with white vest, and paired with a button up denim skirt. The ombre glitter top trainers are so fun, the design seems to combine, cool grange, pretty and casual.
The best part about shopping online on Next Kids are the styled outfits, as you can really see how everything comes together. We styled the slight crop top with the sleeves bunched at the elbow, and for the unpredictable weather, opt for a denim shirt as a light jacket, like we did for her younger brother, and black military trousers, featured in the full online look.
Although it is summer, it is still a British summer after all, and it can be hard to dress for weather that is constantly changing. Who wants to wear summer sandals, and lug around a hefty umbrella, or wear a cardigan or hoodie, when the sun is beating down for the just in case it rains scenario? But we do. The Mini Adorn kids will be styling up Next kids transitional pieces that will take the kids right to autumn, but completely suitable to be worn now. It is all about future proof dressing, My son is 8 but I essentially buy age 9-10 clothes because they outgrow them so fast. These are the pieces we selected from the Next Boys transmission range.
There is something fun but also smart about this blue shirt with red and navy print and rolled up three quarter length sleeves. It is cotton and lightweight for hot days, so upgrade with a light knit jumper over the top to give a more pulled together look, for when the days get colder. For something more casual add a long sleeve top underneath and leave the shirt open and unbuttoned. Double denim isn’t going anywhere so layer over a denim shirt unbuttoned, with jeans and roll up the bottom hem; the heavier shirt can work as substitute as a light jacket, and can of course be worn on its own buttoned up.
GUESS Kids Fall 2015 advertising campaign features the most desired apparel of the season at The Pink Motel – a 1950’s inspired locale in Sun Valley, CA. The campaign transports the viewer back to the rock ‘n roll era with the children photographed alongside a quintessential fifties retro-inspired café and vintage 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Coupe. The decade’s famous rockabilly hairstyles and neck scarves paired with key garments from the collection are fun, authentic elements that bring this make-believe fantasy to life.
For girls, chambray button-downs with sparkling sequin patch detailing along the neckline as well as oversized black and white polka dot cardigans and sweaters with sequined GUESS logos are stand-out items. Transitional staples are injected within the delivery including classic GUESS denim jackets, punchy pink poodle skirts as well as a selection of both clean and distressed denim jeans. For boys, plaid button-downs in a mixture of colours and patterns matched with relaxed cotton joggers lend extreme comfort.
The Mini Edit is coming, the online multi-brand childrenswear retail concept, is set to go live 17th July 2015. The Mini Edit will be just that, a curated selection of the best in contemporary children’s fashion spanning Akid, Stella McCartney kids, Ruff and Huddle and so much more alongside toys and gifting from prestigious brands such as Lomography cameras and Penny skateboards.
The brainchild of former buyer and Selfridges kids and toys division head, Jessica King, and her business consultant mother, Beverley. What will make the site unique is the unparalleled level of service and content innovation; with a customer forum and a product-rating element. Co-owner and concept designer, Jessica King, comments:
“In the years leading up to the conception of The Mini Edit, we noticed a significant shift in consumer spending habits, with customers moving away from logo-driven designer clothing, towards contemporary brands which are able to respond faster to trends and offer equivalent, if not superior, quality, at more attainable price points.” She continues: “We observed that whilst childrenswear had proved more resilient than other fashion sub-sectors, with parents less inclined to cut back on spending on their children, the customer’s focus had shifted away from big brands towards the perceived value that comes from ‘fashionability’.”
The Mini Edit will be for the design led fashion conscious parents who want quality an style for their kids.
For the fashion conscious parents who value style, and a pop of colour this summer Salt Water are the go to shoe for the kids ( and you). The cult American leather sandal brand now available in the UK were first designed out of Walter Hoy’s workshop in 1944, the original Salt-Water Sandal is still defined by its stitched rubber sole and plaited leather upper. Going to the beach or seaside? All Salt-Waters come with rust proof buckles, and can be worn in the water and put through a cool machine wash. The best part is that they go from childrens, all the way through to adult sizes.
