    1. Always have a long sleeve warmer, this will keep them warm without having to add too may layers.

    2. Listen to their needs and you’ll know exactly what suits them – a one-piece snow suit or just a warm coat. Some children are colder than others.

    3. Lovely socks are a must! Take them out to choose if they are at the stage where they can – signalling to them that the change of season has arrived. If your child is still a baby its great to have a wonder at all the lovely things out there.

    4. Kids love wellies, not only are they warm but should the kids be at the age were jumping in puddles is a must they will only get very excited at the thought if wearing one.


    5. Choose a nice soft pair of trousers in order for them to be able to move around comfortably. Although jeans are durable they do tend to get cold and if they get wet it will get very uncomfortable for them.

    OKAY I'M ANGRY! If this is not a platform to share your opinions then where else right?! So here it goes, you may have seen Mattel are doing a Barbie version of FRIDA KAHLO, the profoundly inspirational Mexican Artist. Well on the surface it sounds positive – celebrating female cultural icons etc, but it’s in fact not at all what it seems. . . Zac and I adore this woman and are huge fans. Frida Kahlo represented not just a fearless and boundless expression of individuality, but she stood firmly on the side of those in society that were forgotten about. In her art she explored questions of identity, post-colonialism, gender, class, and race in Mexican society. She was simply brilliant, and an inspiration to all us mothers raising daughters. . . Salma Hayek portrayed her brilliantly in the 2002 Bipoic (please watch it if you haven’t already!) and said Frida was “one of the forces that gave me the determination to pursue my career”. . . On to what Mattel are doing. Firstly – despite what some bloggers like to shill on social media, the Barbie doll is not something positive for any child in my view. It does not represent uniqueness, and when Frida becomes SLIM and more LIGHT SKINNED with LIGHT EYES, that’s when lines are being crossed. This is not just cultural appropriation for commercial gain, but the very colonial re-shaping of identity she stood against. . . LEAVE FRIDA ALONE.
