Shopping with my daughter

My daughter has loved fashion since she was tiny and has always enjoyed a flick through the Next Directory or a wander round the shop looking at clothes. But since Christmas, she has stepped it up a level. She’s really got into shopping. I enjoyed shopping as a teenager and before I had kids, but it’s a long time since I’ve been to shops for anything more than purely functional reasons. But my daughter has requested...

The big ones and the little ones (starting Christmas early)

I’m not a fan of talking about Christmas too early (I know, what a hypocrite because I’m doing it right now).

What she wore – M&S playsuit

This M&S playsuit is the perfect summer outfit for little girls – stylish, cute and comfortable – there’s no restrctions on running, climbing, digging in the sand or whatever else they might want to do. And it’s got ICE CREAMS on it. I can’t begin to tell you how obsessed my daughter is with ice cream. She can bring pretty much any situation round to a demand for ice cream. We say no, but it...
