Golden Child Vintage


I spotted Golden Child vintage at the start of the year and fell in love. Not only am I a vintage addict but with most of the clothes being from the 80s and 90s it was a major nostalgia bomb. Recently they had an amazing 50% off sale which meant my order which originally would have cost almost 100 euros was reduced to just a little over 40euros!

If you’re a vintage lover who is looking for something a little bit different from what’s in the shops at the moment check out their website below as they’re planning on having a whole bunch of new stock in very soon.

With Love And A Needle


With Love & A Needle make some fantastic custom garments and accessories and recently I purchased a ‘surprise parcel’ from them. I got a glimpse of some of the fabric being used to create a baby outfit but the rest I would have to wait and see when it arrived.

In the end my parcel included a matching trouser and bib set, a 2 sided toggle blanket, a fabric brooch for myself and some matcha tea. All handmade and costing only 20euro!

Me Mamma B


I was the lucky winner of some labour socks from Me Mamma B recently and have to admit they are some of the most comfortable socks I’ve ever worn especially in pregnancy when a lot of socks feel too tight on your swollen ankles.

Me Mamma B do a whole range of maternity wear and accessories and if you’re on the lookout for a baby shower gift for the mum to be you really can’t go wrong with their matching sets.

Flopsy Shop


I like to shop as ethically as possible and Flopsy Shop is a great way of making sure perfectly good children’s wear doesn’t go to waste.

Selling good quality second hand clothes you can find a real bargain on their site including designer labels at a fraction of the original cost.

Flopsy also buy in clothes (and accept donations) so whether you’re buying or selling it’s good for your pocket and the planet.

Lollipops and Daydreams


I’ve been a fan of looking through Lollipops and Daydreams dresses for awhile but being a boy mammy had never been a customer but as I’m expecting a little girl any day now I finally had the excuse to purchase one of their custom made garments.

As they are made to order the price depends on the size of the child (mine coming in at 30 euro for 6-12 months) but they are unique and perfect for special occasions particularly birthdays.

Orders can take a couple of weeks to arrive so I’ll do a little post when I’ve received mine.
