Stationery Addicts

Stationery should be fun., and the cute Kylie x M&Co selection is something that myself and the kids have fought over. I technically won because the unicorn tape dispenser is mine. Mini Adorngirl starts secondary school in September and how can these stationery essentials not spark a conversation! bone clips, fruit scented markers and the ketchup a and mustard pens are veritable  shareable instagram fodder.

Individual bedroom style when the kids have to share

Soak and sleep reversible blanket

 

We have quite a small place, and the kids are used to sharing, but there is only so much space you can improvise with, until you run out. We invested in a three tier triple bunk bed, in place of their regular bunk bed so now the eldest doesn’t have to put up with twins crazy sleeping positions. She is at the bottom, the twins are in the middle and the boy got the top bunk.

Their room is a calming gender neutral green, but I really wanted to let them have their own style, so here is essentially how to very easily decorate for individual tastes when the kids have to share.

Soak & Sleep bedding

I can’t stress enough how much I love Soak and Sleep, the beautiful designs coupled with the quality materials make for luxurious bath & bedtimes. The easiest start for individual style is their bed sheets and with the selection from the Soak & Sleep children’s range the only issue came from having to choose.

Mini Adorn girl has the illustrated Jungle animal duvet set, (can be personalised) which is 100% cotton and printed on a 200 thread count bedlinen, so it’s strong, easy to treat for stains, and tumble-dryable. The duvet cover has string closures so securing with bows add to the beautiful design. Simply drape a lambswool blanket at the base or across the middle of the bed. This looks gorgeous but also great for warmer nights when the duvet is too much, or when it gets colder as an extra layer to the quilt.

The twins have the reversible bedspread in pink (their favourite colour) a good mix of lightweight, 100% cotton for the outer, and  a medium thickness,  the wadding is a mix of rayon and polyester, but not stiff. It feels good tucking them in after their bedtime routine of a bath, and a story. To them its like having a new bed every night as they alternate between the flowery ditsy print, or the subtle polka dots. For best care it is suggested to hand wash at around 30 Degrees, and not suitable for tumble drying and bleach.

Last but not least my son went for the toy animal print duvet cover animal print duvet cover, which actually is the same kind of look as the Jungle print sheet, so go with the kind of animals your child likes. For something more individual, I paired with the reversible kissing penguins cotton throw kissing penguins cotton throw, contrasting the bolder print with the smaller scale of the sheet. From there add their favourite toys and a scattering of cushions for pillows, for their own personal stamp.

The White Company

Christmas time is that special time in July, where it is sweltering hot, but we are drawn into the magic of what to expect for December. The White Company are the epitome of covetable homewares and style, and what is essentially a perfect white Christmas. I will not tease you with the selection as won’t be available until September but  what I always take from a white company showcase is the attention to detail. Bunting above the bed will work all year round, and the little white company offering from toys, books, and luxurious blankets will make for perfect pillow fortes.

Review: Emily Button

This Emily Button design your own card set was one of Mini Adorngirls Christmas presents, the kitsch pretty range based on a real life rag doll, and her friends Bobble and Mousey,  is exclusive to Marks and Spencer  with a selection of toys, stationery and crafts suitable for 3 years and up. It is her best friends birthday very soon, so we popped open the re-sealable paper purse, to make a personal extra special card just for her.  The set includes 10 pre-scored illustrated cards with plain envelopes, 2 sheets of stickers, and 6 coloured pencils. I think this is a great present for fans of Emily Button, or just sparking some creativity. It is definitely worth visiting the Emily Button site as well,  there are lots of free fun activities ( print and colour illustrations)  and easy to follow recipes that you can do together.
