Trendy Tot Thursday 08/10/2015

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 


Trendy Tot Thursday (06/08/2015)

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! 

Trendy Tot Thursday (30/07/2015)

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. 

Trendy Tot Thursday (17/07/2015)

Wow! Happy Birthday Trendy Tot Thursday! What a brilliant first year it has been being able to see how other bloggers dress their gorgeous children. 

Cracker this week was initially wearing a top from Primark, which states he is a ‘little gentleman’. When it got too hot, he stripped this off and he had on a t-shirt from Pebble Stone Clothing, which was bought at T K Maxx. As we are potty training, he needed to wear shorts which are easy to remove so he is wearing a pair from Primark. Of course on his feet are his Lightning McQueen Crocs

Biscuit has on a top and legging set in navy and white from George at Asda. It looks dead cute, but thanks to the reasonable price tag I am happy her running round the park in it! When it was a bit nippy in the morning so we paired it with a blue cardigan from Petit Bateau. She is also wearing her Crocs, with Anna and Elsa on them from Frozen. 

All that’s left for me to do is offer my congratulations to Mother Geek and Clearly Bex for a successful year-long linky! Check out their pages for more Trendy Tot Thursday and lots more besides. 

Pop by whenever you’d like and say hi!! See you next week. X

Trendy Tot Thursday (02/07/2015)

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.

Trendy Tot Thursday (25/06/1015)

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. 

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.

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

I hope you enjoy reading our Trendy Tot Thursday as much as I enjoyed writing it! Check out The Mother Geek and Clearly Bex for more!

Hope to see you again next week for another Trendy Tot Thursday, and please feel free to stop by and say ‘hi’ whenever you have time!
