Pip’s Parcels

Where do I begin?

Michaela from Pip’s Parcels is such a gem, she’s one of the loveliest humans! A few months back I entered Loralai into her rep search and I was super happy when she was chosen alongside some other littles. Michaela creates tie dye beauties and you can pretty much get anything you want, all you have to do is message her. She is a genius!

We have a group chat for all things Pip’s but it’s become, to me at least, a safe haven for chatting about Mama life, the ups and downs, sharing snaps of our littles and talking about anything! And I can’t forget all the LOVE we share for Pip’s, Michaela really is a super creative!

I thought I’d get a mix of snaps for this post, so you can really see the difference in her creations …

Twinning Skull Tops

Birthday ‘Five’ Top

Loralai has a few tops, some dresses and a bag for school.

Marceline has some baby vests, the one below is my FAVE.

I even have a few bits for myself, check out my frilly socks.

One of my fave orders was for our skull tops, I love it when we twin up.

But look at these two even cuter twins …

In Pip’s ugly Christmas print, I love them.

I seriously have SO many snaps of the girls but I wanted to share the team LOVE and get a few product pictures from Michaela too.

Check out the coolest littles, Seren and Gunnar.

Amaze snaps from their Mama Charlotte.

And Helen with her beautiful boys, soo dreamy!

The cutest little Oliver, these pictures from his Mam Shannon are beautiful!

https://www.instagram.com/shannkins/

And last but not least some pictures of Michaela’s creations.

See, there is just so much choice! So many options, and you can see if your idea’s will work too. Michaela is just a message away.

Loralai has a new pink dress with skulls on, I can’t wait to snap some pictures of her in it. I actually wish it was mine. She’s back in her Christmas top for her last day of school tomorrow, and I bet no one else is wearing a tie dye top! So unique.

Thanks for having us Michaela, we love being on your team with lush team members too.

And if anyone wants to make an order don’t forget we all have discount codes!

Tattered Thread

– Natalie Sedgewick –

So can we take a moment to appreciate this thing of beauty?

Natalie is the super creative behind this new embroidery mix up of modern day style with some tattoo inspiration. Her work is vibrant, full of detail, screams cool and is of course – right up my street! You can see the tattoo theme in her work, which I absolutely love.

I love the mix up of her art work with the flowers, and those super pretty jewels too.

Natalie has just set up a new page on Instagram, Tattered Thread where you can find all her AMAZING work, she is taking on commissions too.

https://www.instagram.com/tattered_thread/

Loralai said her favourite is – Pizza is life, which made me think up a few idea’s for the girls bedrooms. I’d like her to create some piece’s for the girls because I love having artwork in their rooms. Especially when it’s coming from such a mega babe, and small shop.

I’ve been lucky enough to work with Natalie recently, she has played such a huge part in my new pin venture (blog coming soon) and it’s honestly been such a pleasure.

She even surprised me with this beauty …

An embroidery of my pin logo, it is SUPER pretty and I love it so much.

Look at the details …

It’s currently sat on my desk and I can’t wait to put it up on my wall.

Go show her some LOVE, she is the sweetest most beautiful human who I look forward to working with in the future!

https://www.instagram.com/tattered_thread/

Get in touch for all your embroidery needs, they are such a cool and personal gift idea too. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with for my girls.

I’m thinking a unicorn for Loralai and a bat for Marceline, I’m already excited!

So much LOVE for Natalie.


 Nat The Natural Mom

Nat’s creations are for cool Mom’s and tiny humans, she sells apparel and chalkboards which include Mommy and me outfits, baby onesies and shirts, pregnancy trackers, monthly growth trackers and birthday boards.

She is also up for custom orders, LOVE.

Edit – Things have changed SO much, Nat is like super woman right now and is running this world! The shop I blogged about below has gone and she now has Magically Pressed Co for you all you Disney fans and The Mothering Front a community and apparel space for us Mama’s!

Go show Nat and her new creations some LOVE!

https://www.instagram.com/magicallypressedco/

https://www.instagram.com/themotheringfront/

She is also running a blog https://natthenaturalmom.com/ which is BEAUTIFUL, I’ll be doing a more up to date blog with all of Nat’s new tee’s. Everything I’ve said below still stands, her tee’s are fab!


Since I came across Nat’s shop I’ve been watching her feed like a hawk, I loved so many of her designs! When the ‘Badass Mama’ tee popped up I just had to buy it. It’s the first time I’ve ordered something from the states and I was honestly shocked at how quickly it came, I’ve heard it can take weeks so I thought I’d mention the super fast delivery.

In true Mama style I didn’t get to open my parcel until 2 whole days after it arrived through my door. Busy, busy, busy. I was so excited to see a little note from Nat and what I loved the most is that she put Sarah Lou, not Sarah, Sarah Lou. It may sound weird but I loved that, I go by Sarah Lou and sometimes people call me Sarah … Which is fine because that is my name but Sarah Louise is my actual name too, anyway it was a nice touch in my eyes!

The tag also has the care instructions on …

I waited to write up this blog until I had worn and washed the tee, the fit was just what I was after (I bought a US size M), it’s stretchy too which I like in a top. It’s super cool, I love the black around the neck and sleeves. It was easy to breastfeed in, I felt awesome all day, it really is my new fave tee!

If you’re not already following Nat and her shops make sure to head to her pages, she’s all kinds of AMAZE.

Two Tough Tikes

I’ve blogged about the lovely Zoe’s shop before and if you didn’t catch it here’s a recap with plenty of snaps. Tough Tikes Apparel is a small shop on Instagram with designs from Zoe featuring all things rock and roll, tattoo, skulls, graffiti and more. Zoe frequently has £5 Fridays on set designs so keep your eyes peeled!

Loralai has two long sleeve tops – one with a skull, obviously because we LOVE skulls. The other has an old school swallow, she always looks super cool in them so here’s some snaps …

This is the swallow design, L’s crazy mermaid hair is covering it a little but this is one of my favourite tops that she owns.

As you can see this is another firm fave, she wears this one a lot!

Zoe has so many designs and the kids always look SO cool in them, make sure you check out her Instagram page.

https://www.instagram.com/tough_tikes_apparel/

I also have some snaps of the coolest dude Freddie, check him out in all his Tough Tikes gear!

But for now a little treat for Loralai will do, I bought one of Nic’s pom pom headbands full of pinks and glitter!

Loralai is a fan!

Nic also sent some clip on pom poms which Loralai also LOVES.

And they both take pride in her bedroom the little cutie, check out her pom poms here …

Hello again, The Little Closet

Not too long back I wrote a blog about this lovely gender neutral shop for children. The Little Closet creates hand made clothing which is now available up to age 6 (whoop) and I just love the colours, their message and guess what? They have just released their Christmas range!

I wanted to share snaps of the Christmas jumper beauties.

They are going fast so be quick!

Tiny Knots Ft. The dreamiest stars

My love for this Instagram shop just grows, grows and grows! Seriously I feel like I need to go and get a second job JUST so I can have Loralai and Marceline in Tiny Knots for LIFE.

Loralai just received her newest rep outfit and it’s a dreamy, star printed grey romper. All the heart eyes! She wanted to wear it straight away, as per. She really loves the prints from Tiny Knots, she’s got good taste! Her favourite dress is still, very firmly, the little seaside delight from there. I am SO looking forward to the day when Loralai and Marceline can match in that print!

As usual the fabric is super soft, the romper is beautifully made and this time oh I just LOVE the star print. I’m really loving stars and grey at the moment so it’s literally THE best combo in my eyes! We’ve been chilling at home today and I was hoping that Loralai would wait until we where out and about to wear her romper but she wanted it on straight away.

She’s basically just mooched around the house all day looking super cute!

I have to include these snaps of her and remember to use the code: LORALAI10 for discount people.

LOVE.

The Little Closet

 Gender neutral for the babes.

I most definitely love anything that gives the whole blue/pink, gender assigned, blah blah crap a huge kick in the face. It’s still on our adverts, still in our shops but I know so many babes who are fighting the battle and winning. The Little Closet is a perfect example of hand made beautiful clothes with all those gender neutral feels.

YESSS.

You need to get over to their page on Instagram for many reasons, their clothes, the style, those neutral vibes and they have a GIVEAWAY!

Also they are soon to be moving from 0-3yrs to 0-6yrs, whoop!

Making memories Ft. Polkadot Printing

My love for this shop will never fade, Polkadot Printing has been the start of something amazing for us 2Mermaidz, I am truly grateful to the amazing Jackie for giving Loralai her first opportunity to be a rep. We’ve had SO much fun with our baby announcements with the help of Polkadot. We’ve been silly, cute and we are already in discussions about a ‘hello world’ vest for my baby M.

Always exciting!

Polkadot have their own designs as well as making personalised tee’s for babies, kids and us adults. With Halloween and Christmas fast approaching go check out Jackie’s designs or get your ideas over to her.

Little Black Stage, monochrome love.

When I last blogged about this lovely Insta shop it was their 3 day countdown. Now they are officially open with their super cool leggings to boot. I couldn’t of been happier with the quirky monochrome shark leggings for Loralai and Marceline, obviously I’ll have to wait a little longer to see baby M in them but Loralai looked SO cool! She told her nursery friends and the teachers ALL day about her shark leggings, the little babe.

The print is cool and the leggings have a lovely thick fabric, L said they are comfy too. Super important to be cool AND comfy right? If you head over to their page you can see all of the monochrome prints.

I also have another code for you guys – 2MERMAIDZ10 for 10% off your orders!

Fabrics of DREAMZ

Hello Tiny Knots.

So if you don’t already know I LOVEEE Tiny Knots, I came across this amazing shop on Instagram a little while back. And I know I’ve already told this story before BUT we won a little competition and I picked something for the baby bump. As soon as the romper came I couldn’t get over how soft the fabric was, the attention to detail, so well made! AND most of all the print, LOVE. Since then Loralai has become a rep, she got the skull dress of dreams and I still really want one! I’ve also had to treat the girls to some matching bits because I literally can’t cope with the prints.

So I just want to holla some of my love and actually some of Loralai’s love because her new fave dress is from Tiny Knots and today I received the octopus romper for Marceline with matching pants for Loralai.

All the heart eyes people.

Loralai’s next rep outfit came too and I just can’t wait to show her, I already have plans for a Tuesday photo sesh feeding the ducks. Aaahh.

If you don’t already go over to Instagram and give them a follow.

Tiny Knots Love

So I am a HUGE Instagram fan from the constant inspiration to fellow bloggers, support, Mam power, amazing shops and the rest!

What’s not to love?

One of the things I have enjoyed the most is finding cool ass people who work super hard and then create awesome things! Again that’s anything from clothes, bags, pins, you name it! I’ve had loads of fun noseying around buying things when I can (a wedding AND a new baby sorta steals your money) and I’ve also stumbled across the brand rep world.

I already share shops and things I love, hence some of the new pages on here but it’s also super fun and exciting to have first dibs or to be the first to look at someone’s new creations.

Taking some snaps and sharing them, supporting their journey!

Myself and Loralai are new to the brand repping, we’ve had loads of fun with Polkadot Printing and we now have a new opportunity with Tiny Knots, not forgetting Little November who we are Brand Ambassadors for! It’s so much fun and we are always SUPER grateful for opportunities to support others.

So if you haven’t already check out these awesome shops, lot’s of CUTENESS for toddler and baby!

Keep your eyes peeled for some of our fave finds, lot’s of snap to follow soon too – Loralai in some Tiny Knots get up, LOVE.
