With Christmas shopping now in full swing, I thought I’d share a few of mine and Eva’s favourite things.
Key-Per tripe pouch — Fossil This was one of the Christmas gifts my in-laws gave me last year, and I love it. Each different pouch is perfectly sized. The biggest one is large enough to fit a case of wipes and a couple of nappies, which is great to slip inside a handbag if you don’t want to carry around a large baby bag.
Fitted Tank Dress — Seed Heritage I love this dress. I’m not fond of maternity clothes, so I’ve opted more for stretchy items and this dress has become an essential for me.
Dior Mascara and Mac Studio Fix I may not have a lot of time to do my make-up in the morning, but these two are always a must.
Tote bag — Kikki K The perfect work bag, big enough to hold a couple of folders and other work essentials.
Fiona Sandals — Seed Heritage The perfect Summer sandals — dress them up or dress them down.
Scales iPhone case — Society6 It is true that a bit of colour can brighten your day, and I have to say, as simplistic as it sounds, this case makes me happy.
Olivia Clutch — il Tutto The perfect bag. It small yet big enough to holds credit cards, money, an iPhone, keys, a nappy, and a small case of wipes. Perfect for quick trips to the shop.
Bashful Bunny — Jellycats The softest and perfectly sized bunny for a toddler — “Hop” has been a favourite of Eva’s since she first got it for Easter.
Finger Printing Art Set Not the cleanest crafting activity, but Eva loves finger printing. Sometimes setting up paints outside can be too involved, so this provides a simple alternative and thankfully the ink washes off easily!
Funny Face Glasses (similar) By far Eva’s favourite game to play is Dress-ups! She loves putting on various hats, hiding in disguise and creating hybrid characters such as the tutu wearing dinosaur on vacation in Hawaii with a flowered lei and camera.
Pleat Jersey Dress — Seed Heritage Fashion forward, not too cutesy and great quality, Seed has quickly become my new favourite store to buy from — for myself and Eva! Along with Seed I can’t go past the quality and styles from Crewcuts, Country Road, Witchery and Tea Collection.
Janod Wooden Alphabet Puzzle Not only is it beautifully made, but it is also a fantastic learning tool. Since Eva got this puzzle for her 2nd birthday she has learnt the alphabet, associates letters with words and is now learning their sounds.
Charlie and Lola — Lauren Child Eva’s first commercial love — Charlie and Lola. Both the books along with the TV show are frequently requested in our household.
Glitter nail polish — Seed Heritage What little girl doesn’t like glitter?
Saltwater Sandals These shoes are fantastic. Eva grows out of these sandals before she even begins to wear them out! Currently, we are on to our 4th pair!
