Sweet Innocence

Our fabulous designer Rebecca Nash has just presented us with her latest collection. My daughters eyes almost popped out of her head when she saw them, and was immediately smitten. You can see why with Rebecca's designs embracing bright cheerful colours and images.

I love letting my children pick their own clothing as they come up with some interesting outfits. My daughter often comes out looking like a Harajuki girl from Japan. Very cute. My son on the other hand is all of 2 and a half, and is quite conservative. My only real issue with him is that I will iron his clothes to wear and without fail a minute before we are due to walk out the door he demands to change. So he always looks slightly messy, which is a shame as I try my hardest to look ironed and crisp (although I rarely iron for myself).

The challanges.... however if that is my greatest challange........

New Shimi

Well, Shimi is close to a year old now, and has evolved what seems like daily. Get ready for another revolution, as Shimi is heading for a change.

We (Jen and Row) have decided that we really want to dedicate our site to Australian Designers. We have always had that as a goal, but have been a little hesitant to put all our eggs in one basket. But now we feel it is the right time to put our all into our goal of having an Australian Designer ONLY site, and doing our part to support industries in Australia.

Over the next month we will be having a huge sale on our current stock and come August it will be all new stock. So if there is anything you have wanted and keep putting off - now is the time to buy.

Here is a little sneak peak of what will be on the racks.

An apple a day!

I know we've all heard the saying 'An apple a day keeps the doctor away". However, I didn't realise just how true that saying was until I was reading an article the other day about the goodness an apple contains. I drink a fair bit of tea (black and green) and always thought that that was a great source of antioxidants, however an apple contains twice the amount of a cup of tea! Three times the amount of an orange and more than half a punnet of blueberries or a cup of strawberries. So, next time you are at the green grocer, grab a few extra apples.. They are good value - price and health wise (not to mention delicious!).
