Hello June!

Posted on 1st June 2017 by Hayley & Lucas

Happy June!

Summer is well and truly here, hooray! We're looking forward to days filled with sunshine, ice creams and meals al fresco! 

As ever we've got a busy month ahead, working on lots of new products and we will be launching our annual seconds sale! Next week we are going to be adding a brand new wedding collection of pretty pink ombre pouches so keep your eyes peeled for those. We will also be getting ready for another exciting project due to be with us next month - baby number two! 

june birthstone pearl

Say hello to June's beautiful birthstone, the very pretty pearl! We found the pearl to be the trickiest birthstone to design and it took quite a few samples to get right, but we're so pleased with how it turned out! Our pearl design is available on a very handy little canvas zip pouch, the perfect birthday gift when stuffed with treats!

Feeling a little exhausted?

Posted on 16th May 2017 by Hayley & Lucas

Lately we've realised that our darling daughter June is much more exhausting at 2.5 years than she was as a baby, so we decided to start printing our 'Exhausting' design on a toddler size tee! You can now get the exhausting design in a babygrow in sizes 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months and as a t-shirt in sizes 12-18 months, 18-24 months and 2-3 years.
