TIBA + MARL x Mama’s & Papa’s // Season Two

Tiba + Marl x Mamas & Papas Season Two has landed!

——

I’m not currently looking for a new pram… yet. But the second collaboration between my Mum-Boss favourites, TIBA + MARL and high-street lovelies, Mama’s & Papa’s is pretty damn epic.

First of all though, I’m going to go straight to the new Miller backpacks that have also launched for this collaboration. The Miller design now comes in the bespoke navy leopard print and  in a stunning luxe metallic pewter finish – and also returning is the covetable black faux leather Miller too.

Stylish and practical, the MILLER is the ideal choice and leaves your hands free for a busy day out-and-about. Injecting effortless style in striking pewter, this backpack is large enough to fit most laptops and doubles up perfectly as a work bag, gym bag or carry-on bag.

I absolutely love both of these ^ As always, both back packs are completely unisex (can be used waaaaaaay after the baby & toddler years!) and come with the following features:

– Luxury padded changing mat
– Insulated bottle holder
– Internal laptop pocket
– Smart phone pocket
– Large exterior pocket
– 2 additional external side pockets
– Removable wet clutch / cross body bag
– Grab top handle
– Padded lower back panel
– Chunky metal zips with double pullers for easy access
– Metal feet
– Adjustable padded shoulder straps
– Wipe clean exterior and lining

The TOMS® Story

In 2006, American traveler Blake Mycoskie befriended children in a village in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS®, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One™.

Realising this movement could serve other basic needs, TOMS® Eyewear was launched. With every pair purchased, TOMS® will help give sight to a person in need. One for One™.

“I was so overwhelmed by the spirit of the South American people, especially those who had so little, and I was instantly struck with the desire — the responsibility — to do more.”
—Blake Mycoskie

In the spirit of collaboration and giving, & Other Stories is a proud supporter of Magic Bus and its Women’s Scholarship Fund to support English language classes for young women in India.

REVIEW | Meadham Kirchhoff x AMAZON.

Photo 21-11-2013 14 02 23

Following the amazingly successful sweater collaboration last year, Meadham Kirchhoff and online retailer, Amazon, have joined forces again for this incredible 4-piece silk scarf collection.

London Fashion Week design duo Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff are famed for their rebellious take on fashion. This second collaboration with Amazon Fashion is an exclusive collection of four distinctive scarves, in the spirit of the designers’ main catwalk collections.

I was absolutely thrilled to be asked to get involved with this collaboration as I’d very much enjoyed their initial offering with Amazon – and we all know how Meadham Kirchhoff flies out of Topshop!

My absolute favourite scarf from this collection is ‘PEARLS’. The print is so pretty, and of course, I love all things gold.  I really like how it’s been styled on the model too (take a look at all the below photos for some unique scarf styling!).

Meadham-Kirchhoff-ss13-collaboration-pearl-scarf-amazon

Each silk scarf is pretty massive and measures 120cm x 120cm! So LOTS of value for the £75.00 price tag. These scarves are all limited edition and can only be purchased from Amazon Fashion, here: MEADHAM KIRCHHOFF FOR AMAZON FASHION. PLUS, if you’re UK based you already qualify for FREE delivery – BOOM!

Which is your favourite scarf? And are there any different ways you’d style any of these scarves?

UNIQLO: Undercover – New Childrenswear.

 

I was browsing Uniqlo.com in search of baggy shirts that would be big enough to fit over my massive bump; when I saw this new range – “Uniqlo Undercover“. A clothing range for families of today, in collaboration between Uniqlo and Jun Takahashi’s UNDERCOVER clothing label. I’d always said how the brand should branch out into Childrenswear – and here it is (albeit limited in styles!).

Here are my favourites – obviously, I’m biased towards Boy clothing now that we’re having a boy, but there are some cute Girls and Unisex styles too!
