Trendy Tot Thursday (21/05/2015)

Happy sunny Sunday to everyone. I hope you all slept well? I will never get used to the ridiculously early times Cracker wakes up, I miss sleep!!

Welcome to another week of Biscuit and Cracker’s Trendy Tot Thursday. I have chosen their pyjamas for this week’s post, they have some amazing pyjamas and I hardly ever get to show them off!!

These fabulous twin pyjamas are from a brand called P&K at night. I had never of them before, nor have I found them since but the ever wonderful Zulily. Zulily is a site which showcases lots of different brands at reduced prices. I often have a quick look on their for ideas for the twins and gifts for my friends and family.

Biscuit also has a pair of thick bed socks on from Cath Kidston. She gets super cold feet, so we often have to team her pyjamas with some socks. These have a grip on the bottom, so she doesn’t slip over when walking in them.

The pyjamas themselves have a funky pattern, are soft cotton and are a good size. Plus there’s something about your little ones fresh out of the bath and in a comfy onesie, isn’t there?

Trendy Tot Thursday (14/05/2015)

Good evening readers! I hope you’ve had a good week. I have been absolutely rushed off my feet, hence why I am posting on Sunday evening!

My beautiful little Biscuit is wearing a really cool outfit this week. The striped top and the grey trousers are from a brand called Nautica, which I found at T K Maxx. The top is 3/4 sleeved and is white, navy and grey and match with the grey leggings. The material is thin and cool; perfect for the warmer weather we’ve been enjoying. She is wearing her Clarks shoes and showing off her new Disney Store Minnie Mouse football!

My handsome chap Cracker is wearing a Batman hooded t-shirt from Marks and Spencers, which was handed down from a friend’s little boy. Cracker’s daddy is a geek, so is very happy when he sees Cracker in a t-shirt like this. It is matched with his Mini Club at Boots shorts and his ‘jet’ shoes from Clarks

Trendy Tot Thursday (07/05/2015)

What are your go-to home clothes? Do you, like me, step through the front door and put your pyjamas on? Or do you keep your normal clothes on? I am very fussy about outdoor clothes going anywhere near our beds etc so Biscuit and Cracker spend all their time at home in clean indoor clothes.

I try to keep these indoor clothes as comfy as possible; soft, cosy fabrics with no uncomfortable buttons/zippers/etc. This week Biscuit and Cracker are in the comfiest of clothes- tracksuits!

Biscuit’s matching trousers and jumper are from Gap Kids. The good thing about the trousers is that they have a tie-waist; Biscuit is getting much longer legs but has such a skinny waist that most trousers fall off her. The material is soft, warm and comfortable.

Cracker’s stripy top is also from Gap Kids. It is super soft and cuddly. His trousers are from Primark and have a ‘drop crotch’. I’m pretty sure this is meant to be a fashion statement but, ever the practical mum, I see it as more room to move and more room for large nappies!!

And, of course, accessorising is so important, even in a tracksuit. That’s why both Biscuit and Cracker tried on my high heels when I was getting ready to go out!

I was impressed that they managed to stay upright in them!

Trendy Tot Thursday (30/04/2015)

Hello! I hope everyone is enjoying their bank holiday weekend so far. I am still not used to getting bank holiday off work so it is so exciting for me!

Here is our Trendy Tot Thursday; unfortunately Biscuit has been poorly again so I am using a couple of outfits from the past couple of months instead of the past week- hope this is okay??

My handsome Cracker is absolutely obsessed with Disney’s Cars; particularly Lightening McQueen. He has so many versions of the car to play with and we watch the films…. a lot! He, therefore, could not be happier than when wearing his Lightening McQueen t-shirt from M&Co and the fantastic Lightening McQueen tracksuit trousers from H & M (in Italy). The t-shirt is in the layering style that is super popular at the moment and the trousers are soft, comfortable and generously sized.

Could Biscuit look any cuter??!? I don’t think so! My gorgeous ginger-one is wearing a white long-sleeved t-shirt from M&Co. The gorgeous corduroy mouse dress is from a company called MudPie and we purchased it via Zulily. It comes as a set with the funky tights (although their lack of symmetry does slightly upset my OCD nature) . The shoes are from J C Unique (again purchased via Zulily) and are so pretty. They are cute enough to dress up any outfit but comfy enough to be worn to the park etc.
