Out and about around London: Day 1

Out and about around London: Day 1

Yesterday's bright sunshine and record high temperatures for the year inspired me to start writing a series of fun days out with the kids around London... only now I'm writing it under the pouring rain (complains the New Yorker).  But I will not be deterred!  Because truth be told, when the sun shines on London at this time of year it is absolutely glorious, and somehow you enjoy it more knowing it's so rare... I've noticed that the best days with my children are where they can run around, twirl!!!, and explore their surroundings, so we are going to start with a...


Inspired by Spring

Inspired by Spring

The annual Easter Bonnet creation is a great tradition to introduce Spring. It’s also a new occasion to let the kiddies' creativity loose! I treasure the moment when you realise how far their imagination can go. This year my eldest daughter came up with the idea of an Easter Egg Chocolate Factory. After many hours of drawing, painting, glueing, and dreaming about all of the chocolate she will eat during the Easter holidays… she created a 2 story golden egg chocolate factory, equipped with working bunnies, a chocolate slide for processing the eggs and a secret chocolate egg recipe! I...

From Twirl to Swirl...Cupcakes!

No trip to NYC's West Village is complete without queueing around the corner to sample a cupcake from the quaint Magnolia Bakery, made famous by Sex and the City and known for their heavenly vanilla buttercream signature swirl.  They have inevitably expanded around NYC and beyond, but there's just something about making your way through the crowd, out onto Bleeker Street with your box of treats and biting into the perfect cupcake. Thankfully, Magnolia have not kept their recipe a secret and they have become my "Go To" for every child's birthday over the past 8 years. Just today, I felt like a celebrity...

It Takes a Village...

I'm writing this from my bed, day TWELVE in my bed.  I have been taken down by the flu, like I've never had it before, which then morphed itself into an inner and outer ear infection.  So needless to say, with fever, migraines and dizziness, I have been rendered completely useless as a working mum of 3. My husband jumped in day 1 and stayed home, which isn't really possible with his line of work.  Not that he had a choice, and, bless him, he gave it his all, but let's just say going downstairs would have made my head hurt...


Does this come in MY size?

Does this come in MY size?

Many have asked if we make twirly dresses for women...and for now the answer is no, but never say never! However, we are adding a size 10 to the next collection and Design MyTwirl bespoke dresses. We had assumed that older girls would be out of their twirly dress phase and would already be moving into a more teen/sophisticated/fitted/shorter look.  But I'm happy to report that we were wrong!  We are getting requests from girls well into their teens for dresses.   I was inspired to write this post when a very fashion-conscious, "older" 10 year old tried on one of our dresses.  She walked out, a little...
