A little while ago I wrote this post >> Wonderful package from The Essential One. I’d received a lovely package from the lovely people at The Essential One; I was touched by the lovely thoughtful note and blown away by the incredible packaging. They really do go the extra mile with making sure their customers feel loved! And that scent…ahhh, the amazing packaging is even filled with their signature ‘just washed baby’ scent. SO GOOD. But more to the point, I was really impressed with the look and feel of the clothing.
After a quick first-time wash I added the bag of three babygro’s to my hospital bag ready for Baby Eli’s arrival. I always wash any new clothes before Eli wears them – it was great to see that the Essential One pieces washed so nicely. They came out of the wash so soft and snuggly! Unfortunately however, Eli was a little on the small side (much to EVERYONE’s surprise!) so he didn’t fit into the babygro’s as a newborn 🙁
This week however, Eli now weighs 9lb 11oz and fits perfectly into them and I just had to share!
I’m a huge fan of independent businesses and would definitely encourage you to support The Essential One! Their clothing is just so scrummy and perfect for your baby or for gifts for your loved ones! Take a look TheEssentialOne.com
day job career I set up and manage all digital communities for a high-end British Fashion retailer. My life literally revolves around Facebook and Twitter (as well as Insta.gram, Pinterest, Foursquare, Youtube, Vimeo, hell, even Google+!). My friends will cite me as a “Social Media guru”, I’m modest… but I’d prefer to refer to myself as a “Social Assassin”.
Alas, I digress.
My best friends went away to Paris recently (and came back ENGAGED! YES!) but
more importantly they also brought back this amazing baby grow for us! I had wondered how long it would be before the Social Media slogan/graphic tee’s and vest’s would be handed over… 😉
We haven’t yet decided whether we’ll be signing up Baby Boy bump to the Social sites… what are your thoughts? Yes or no?
Pack of 3 essential Baby Grows from The Essential One. £18.
This week we received a wonderfully packaged parcel from the lovely people over at The Essential One. We’ve been looking in depth at what we need to include in our Hospital Bag (of which I should have had sorted this week, whoops!). One of the essentials that top’s the list to include is of course New Born sleepsuits/baby grows, so we were over the moon when this set of 3 arrived! I cried when I open the outer packaging, how nice is the little note that came with it?! I was touched!
I firstly just want to point out the detail that The Essential One go to with their packaging… everything is beautifully wrapped in their signature tissue and stamped firmly closed with logo stickers. The one other thing you cannot mistake when opening their parcels is the incredible ‘just washed baby’ scent! Absolutely amazing! Our living room filled with this intoxicating just-out-of-the-bath scent, which has made us even more inpatient for our little babbit to arrive! We can’t wait to recreate the smell for real.
So what was in the package then? A set of 3 incredibly soft and cute Baby Grows, that come in a self fabric drawstring bag! The extra bag is going to be so useful. I intend on using it with my changing bag, for additional clothing that we might need on a daily basis! Can’t get over how luxuriously soft the cotton is on these sleepsuits – absolutely perfect for our new born son’s skin. There’s also poppers down each leg for ease of nappy changing.
You can purchase every Essential you’ll need for your New Born (and upwards) from TheEssentialOne.com Once you’ve had a look, you’ll be hooked! Of course, all of the essentials will also make really nice gifts for expecting parents too!
Actually cannot wait to use these sleepsuits – they’re the first things we’ve got for our Hospital Bag (must must must sort this week!) so we’re really excited:D Not long now!
