Hi everyone! How are you all?
Having come from a huge rugby-loving household I have got really stuck in to the Rugby 2015 World Cup and have enjoyed watching it (even though we went out far too early for my liking!).
Before the half-term holiday, Biscuit and Cracker had their very first non-school uniform day at school with the Rugby World Cup as the theme.
Honestly, how cute do they look?! Biscuit and Cracker are both wearing England rugby tops, bought by Mammy and Mamps for the occasion. Obviously these are very hard-wearing and tough tops. As they are also half-Italian, they are wearing Italian tops from the 2014 Football World Cup underneath! We couldn’t say fairer than that!
We teamed Biscuit’s top with her pink leggings from Boots. She was more than a little excited to be able to wear her Frozen Crocs to school as she still loves them.
Cracker is wearing a pair of denim jeans from Primark with his top, as well as the Cars Crocs I struggle to get off his feet at any time other than school.
Thank you for reading our #TT_Thursday. For more information, and for other posts please check The Mother Geek and Clearly Bex and look at their wonderful websites!
We hope to see you very soon. X
Hello! Remember us?! We’ve missed three weeks of #TT_Thursday, which is unheard of for us. I apologise; Biscuit and Cracker have started at pre-school full-time and so wear uniform all day and then get home and it’s straight in the bath and then in their pyjamas as they’re so tired. This current routine is not great for showcasing lovely clothes.
Luckily, we finally managed to get out and about last weekend and here are the results.
Biscuit’s gorgeous dress is from a brand called ‘Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve’, which I found at T K Maxx a little while ago. It is short-sleeved (worn here with a long-sleeved t-shirt from M&Co for warmth), beautiful embroidered front and a delicate blue flower pattern on the skirt. It also washes surprisingly well (I’ve even managed to wash chorizo sauce out of it) and Biscuit thinks she’s a princess in it. Her flower headband is from Next Children, it was bought for my brother’s wedding and I wanted her to wear it more than once!! Obviously she has on her Frozen Crocs; she has missed these having to swap them for school shoes most of the time! Goodness knows what we’ll do in winter.
Cracker makes no secrets of his absolute love for Disney Pixar’s Cars, so when we recently popped in to Primark for harvest festival clothes and he saw this short-sleeved Cars t-shirt he really wanted it! I teamed it with a long-sleeves grey t-shirt from Mini Club at Boots for warmth and he picked his new grey shorts from Blue Zoo at Debenhams to wear with it. You can’t see them, but I think you can guess what shoes he has on- yep, his Cars Crocs!
Thank you for bearing with us through this huge period of change. I hope to be more organised on our weekend and be able to show you when Biscuit and Cracker wear when we aren’t totally exhausted in the evenings!!!!
For more Trendy Tot Thursday you know what to do; pop on over to The MotherGeek and Clearly Bex and see what other Trendy Tots are out there (there are a lot of them).
Thanks again Cx
Hello and welcome to September! How scary is that. When you were a kid the holidays seem to stretch on forever, but as a Mama who twinks start school next week let me tell you how quickly this September has come!
This week Biscuit and Cracker did not really want to pose! They are pretty tired in the afternoons as they have dropped their naps before they start at pre-school (boy do I miss those naps) and tired toddlers generally equals grumpy toddlers! As you can see, they wouldn’t even walk around the supermarket!
Biscuit is wearing a brilliant blue denim pinafore dress from Gap Kids; she loves the pockets on the front and I love how hard-wearing it is. She is wearing it with a red and white striped t-shirt from Boots‘ Mini Club, it is a little small for her now but works well for an under-layer. We are definitely noticing it is more chilly in the late afternoon now so Biscuit has brought her Slugs and Snails out of summer hibernation and is wearing these. This was the first time since the potty training that she has had tights on and I was initially nervous, but the Slugs are so well made that she has no problems pulling them up and down by herself. Plus they are super easy to keep in your bag for any accidents that may happen when you’re out and about. Biscuit is, obviously, wearing them with her Frozen Crocs. I blogged about their school shoes a couple of weeks ago, we are definitely going to struggle getting their Crocs off to wear them!
Cracker let me take one photo of him whilst he looked at the camera and that was it! His amazing t-shirt with dancing monkeys was a birthday pressies from Auntie Carrie (thanks again) and it is from Swedish brand Polarn O Pyret. It is lovely soft cotton and he loves it. I layered this with a plain grey t-shirt from Boots which is now a little short in the body but works well with a longer tee over it. His jeans were bought at T K Maxx and were chosen due to their elasticated waist, which makes going to the toilet much easier for him. He has also teamed his outfit with his Lightning Crocs (I swear that they do have different shoes to chose from but that they always go for the Crocs).
So there is our tired Trendy Tot Thursday post. For more on the linky please visit The MotherGeek and Clearly Bex for more bloggers’ posts.
See you next time!
What a week it has been. Poor Cracker has been very ill all week and I was starting to doubt we would ever get through it. Luckily there seems to have been light at the end of the tunnel today and he is a lot perkier (unfortunately Biscuit is now a bit hot and grotty- the life of twins, hey?).
Every now and then Biscuit and Cracker get some clothes that I cannot wait to show off. This week I went to pick up a surprise parcel from the Post Office, which turned out to be birthday presents from my gorgeous cousin, Vicki, who lives in the South of France.
With Biscuit and Cracker being the least-alike twins every imaginable, I do not get a lot of opportunity to dress them matchy-matchy; but these t-shirts from Spoilt Rotten are amazing. We went out in Covent Garden today with them wearing them and so many people stopped to tell us how much they liked their He did it/She did it tops. Even our local priest commented when he saw us! And, as the pictures show, they work just as well with Rob and I in the photos too!
Cracker wore his t-shirt with his usual red Boots shorts and his Lightning McQueen Crocs. Biscuit wore her with a pink Boots dress and her Frozen Crocs. Their hats and Biscuit’s sunglasses are from George at Asda. I have always loved their clothes from Mini Club at Boots; they are comfy, cute and hard wearing.
For people wondering why they are always in their Crocs; not only are they the singularly most comfortable shoes for them to wear, but they are so easy to clean.
After Biscuit and Cracker had spent an incredibly fun time running through the sprinkler and the mud in Soho Square Park their Crocs were filthy- we just showered them off and they’re currently drying on the balcony (the Crocs that is, not the twins; although they got showered as soon as we were home too)!
Did you enjoy this? If you did then please head on over to Clearly Bex and The Mother Geek to see other blogger’s trendy tots and their togs!
See you next week; do pop over and say hello whenever you’d like!
What a beautiful day it was today, we’re just back from visiting family and enjoying the sunshine.
Last week it was Biscuit and Cracker’s 3rd birthday and we were celebrating, hence the radio silence. We were lucky that their party was on the one day that it wasn’t tiddling it down with rain.
Biscuit is wearing an amazingly pretty dress from American Apparel, I fell totally in love with it walking past their window display and had to get it for her. It’s in lovely, stretchy, comfortable material and really suits her. I put a pair of short leggings under the dress to protect her whilst playing in the playground, they are from Boots. She is wearing her beloved Frozen Crocs, which she always has on, and her Docs McStuffins baseball cap from George at Asda to protect her from the sun.
Cracker is wearing his brand new Baymax from Big Hero 6 t-shirt from Primark (he is currently obsessed with this film and all related accessories, toys and clothes). He has on the shorts he has been fitting in and wearing for over a year from Boots. They are worn as soon as I manage to wash and dry them, he loves them. He also has on his beloved Lightning Crocs and his Minion baseball cap from George at Asda.
I hope you enjoy this Trendy Tot Thursday; a lovely fashion linky brought to you by Clearly Bex and the MotherGeek– check out their blogs for more details and check out other people’s blog posts.
See you again soon I hope.
I hope this post finds everyone well.
This post is less about ‘trendy’ clothes and more about keeping your little ones safe in the sun, especially in this heatwave we are currently…enjoying?!?
These are all clothes you have seen before (apart from the hats) I think, but please stick with us. Cracker is wearing his Olaf t-shirt from Primark, his shorts from Mini Club at Boots and his Lightning McQueen Crocs. His Minion baseball cap is from George at Asda and is a firm favourite of his. Biscuit is wearing a dress from Mini Club at Boots and her Frozen Crocs. Her amazing, floppy, purple Sofia the First hat is from Disney Store UK.
We put these things on because they fulfilled the sun safe rule of SLIP, SLAP, SLOP. This means your children (and you too) should slip on a cotton t-shirt, slap on a hat and slop on the sun screen, hopefully meaning they stay as safe as they can whilst enjoying playing outside. The cotton t-shirt will help to cover them up and keep them cool, a wide-brimed hat will keep the sun off their face and out of their eyes (and if it’s like Biscuit’s it will also help to protect their necks), and the sunscreen will help protect their gorgeous, delicate skin from harmful rays.
I hope you’ve enjoyed another week getting a sneaky peak at the twins’ wardrobes. We’ve enjoyed showing you! For more #TT_Thursday, please visit Clearly Bex and Mother Geek- they are our wonderful hosts of this fun linky.

Hi there! Sorry for missing you last week. Life does sometimes get on top of you doesn’t it? But we are back with avengence this week, hope you’re ready!!!
Has everyone had a good week? We have been busy (do the words ‘potty training’ strike fear into the hearts of any other parents of toddlers???), hence the Sunday posting, again!
My gorgeous Cracker is wearing a t-shirt from Rocket and Rose which we bought from Zulily. You may remember it from their birthday Trendy Tot last July; as you can see, it still fits! Not only that, but it has survived multiple wears and washes. The colour is still as vibrant as ever, and the transfer decoration is still pristine. What more could a Mama ask for? His shorts are actually swim shorts from Primark, but they’re really comfortable for him and very hard wearing. He is also wearing his Lightning McQueen Crocs, these are some of the most loved shoes in the world. Plus, being Crocs it means that they can be wiped down when they get muddy/messy- very handy!
Beautiful Biscuit is wearing her Doc McStuffins baseball cap from George at Asda, a pretty white dress her Grammy bought her from a brand I have never heard of called ABQ (goodness knows where she got it from, my Mum is a genius at spotting gorgeous things), a pair of well-worn, but still vibrant pink leggings from Boots and her Frozen Crocs (again, I love Crocs for toddlers, they are like the perfect summer shoes). I was initially a little nervous of her running around and playing in a white dress, but have learnt that if you feel like that then they have items which never get worn. And that is more of a waste than if one gets mucky in the park.
