My week on Instagram

27th January, 2019

It’s been another busy week this week. I’ve been getting Sophia ready for pre-school (and shared my back-to-school shopping list on the blog) whilst enjoying a bold pink moment with a gorgeous Rebecca Vallance dress.

But what better way to end an eventful week than with a long weekend. I’ve been having a relaxing time time Luke and the girls, whilst enjoying a beverage or two. That’s what long weekends are for right?

I hope you’re all enjoying your long weekends!

Back-to-school essentials for pre-schoolers

24th January, 2019

It’s hard to believe that this year will be Sophia’s last year of pre-school before she heads to big school next year. So this year I’m enjoying shopping for all her pre-school essentials, before we get into things like books and uniforms next year. If you’re gearing up to get the kids back to pre-school or daycare, here are a few things that I’ve found handy.

Stuck On You lunchbox

I’m all for a timesaver and this cute little bento box style lunchbox is amazing because it means I don’t have to wrap everything separately. I just pop everything into its designated compartment and I’m done. This range also comes in personalised designs so if you want to get your little one involved with the back-to-school process, perhaps you could get them to help choose a design.

Camelback drink bottle

I’m a fan of this drink bottle because of the non-spill element. They also come in a range of cute designs and is great for kids ready to graduate from a sippy cup.

Pixie’s Bows

I enjoy getting Sophia dressed up for pre-school and often put bows in her hair but as she’s so active my main issue is keeping them in place. The range from Pixie’s Bows have a clip that holds in place well, plus they come in an array of colours if you want to suit any uniform requirements.

Personalised clothing labels

These labels are customisable and a great way to label any clothing. I like the fact that they’re easy to use as you just iron them on and you’re done.

Faber-Castel Junior coloured pencils

For kids who are just learning to use pencils these are great. I’ve found these are perfect for my 4-year-old and 2-year-old as the triangle shape helps them to hold the pencil in the right position.

Tell me—what are some of your back-to-school essential recommendations whether it’s for pre-school or big school?
