Bobby & Belles and has continued to source beautiful one-off pieces sourced in mainland Spain that regularly sell out. The range includes newborn, girls and boys clothing from tights, dresses, onesies, jumpers, trousers and even hair bows from age 0-7.

Review

bobby & belles

 We recently received a beautiful floral navy and white dress from Bobby & Belles to review. I don’t normally get clothes online for Kayla, personally I like to touch and feel the quality and verify Kayla likes the the dress too. Even at four, she has her own sense of style and knows exactly what she likes to wear.

The dress arrived last week and once opened she had to wear it straight away. The dress hit below her knee and cupped at her wrists,  no cardigan necessary for the winter months. The quality and durability of the fabric is outstanding, it’s washed really well and did not lose shape. The dress costs €17.95 and is worth every penny.  I would certainly buy from this store in the future.

Kayla’s Review

 I love my dress. It’s lovely and warm. I look like Laura from The Little House on the Prairie. I wore it to my friends house and she loved my dress too.

Our Day Out At The Christmas Toy Show

We headed off to the Christmas Toy Show yesterday afternoon. Situated in the main hall of the RDS, it had all the toys you need for Christmas under one roof from this year’s must-haves to the all-important stocking fillers, yeh know the one’s kids will actually play with! There was a timetable of live entertainment and music, along with activities and entertainment for everyone, adults included.

Upon arrival fashion icon Barbie was meeting and greeting her fan at the entrance. Kayla tripped over herself when she seen her. She got all her words mumbled and almost cried with excitement.

We started at the Play-Doh workshop, squishing, mushing and creating. Mr Play-Doh made an appearance. He jumped, skipped and danced, all the children were giggling and laughing as his play-doh pot bounced about the place.

Kayla spotted the Lego workshop next, she must have spent an hour here. She is looking for Princess Lego off Santa this year so she decided to practice making a Rapunzel castle.

Frosty the DJ kept everyone entertained when the live entertainment was on a break. We chilled back in a bean bag filled area and watched an amazing magic show by Silly Billys and Eclipse stage school performed some brilliant routines.

There is so much to do, you could spend the whole day there. There was a host of interactive family fun from ride-on tractor racing tracks, remote control challenges to Nerf and Rebellen target ranges. There was a storytime area, football challenges and not forgetting the Santa experience too.

It is a day not to be missed. I would recommend to bring some sandwiches if you are going to head along. There is a couple of vendors selling food but none to our taste, we are very fussy eaters. We are now feeling all christmassy and getting ready to pull the decoration out and christmify the house top to bottom. God, I love Christmas.

I was there amongst some of Irelands finest women because I was nominated in the best blogger or vlogger category (yes I’m still pinching myself).

My Invite

My Invite to the Awards

I attended the awards hosted by Mia Dunphy in The Spencer with my friend Louise, we sipped cocktails, we chased and nibbled on the delicious food hovering around the room, mingled with some of Ireland’s biggest role models and I enjoyed my five minutes of fame as my name was called out along with the other finalists. Suzanne Jackson an amazing role model, beauty and fashion blogger won my category. I’ve been a huge fan of hers three years now. She is a huge inspiration to many young women including myself.

Kayla and Santa’s Irish Adventure Review

Santa’s Irish Adventure is written by L. J Taylor, illustrated by Patrick D. Kinsella and produced right here in Ireland by Digital Scribe in Bray, Co Wicklow.

IMG_20141116_191253

The book arrived last week, Kayla was ecstatic when it arrived. Complete with a letter from Santa confirming she was on the nice list, it made her day. That evening we got comfy with some hot chocolate and I watched as Kayla got lost in the book and the adventures it brought her on.

IMG_20141116_185107

Santa also sent my little babog a letter, it was in the book when we opened it, she is on the nice list and he cannot wait to come bring Kayla some presents if her good behaviour continues. It was an added bonus, again this is personalised and Kayla was mesmerized yet again.

The only fault I have with this book is the price, I do think it’s quite expensive at €15.99, however Kayla loved it so much I would buy one as a gift. We are bringing Irish culture, mythology, landmarks and history into our everyday life at the moment and this book and it’s educational features really helped embrace that. I loved reading this book to Kayla. I loved watching her face light up as we turned each page. This book makes the perfect gift for Christmas or as a special treat.

Kayla’s Review

IMG_20141116_185133

I love my book that mammy got me. I love how I helped Santa save Christmas. The elf looks like The Grinch, but he’s green thats my favourite colour. My friend Louise went to the Giant’s Causeway, I seen pictures, mammy says she might bring me next summer. I love my book, I like my picture and I like my brothers are in the book too. I cannot wait for Santa to come on Christmas Eve.

The personalised Christmas book takes 5 days to print and 1-2 days delivery within Ireland. Santa’s Irish Adventure costs €15.99 plus P&P and you can order your own copy HERE. Digital Scribe are also on Facebook, check them out HERE.
