It's cold here.



Northern Ireland was hit by an unprecedented snow storm at the weekend. You wouldn't know from these photos... but I can assure you, it was. Compare it in your head to that film The Day after Tomorrow. It was so coul' I didn't even want to go out and photograph it. I hear it was even worse than the notorious snowfall of '63, which my parents and grandparents talk about with great fervor. Although we were snowed in most of the weekend, when we dug ourselves out of the driveway, and made the effort to drive 40 minutes down the road to my in-laws house, we discovered just how localised the snow was. There wasn't a pick in the country, as you can see. That's not to say it wasn't bitterly cold. Perhaps the coldest I have ever felt. Absolutely baltic! Jack was wrapped up warm in his trusty Zara puffa coat, H&M hat and mittens, and Aigle Perdrix wellingtons. Needless to say we didn't get too far before scuttling back to the blazing stove.

Below is a wee portrait I snapped of Jack when we were snowed in. He has the most infectious smile I have ever seen - And it warms the cockles of my heart to think that beam is especially for Mammy peeking out from behind the camera!

Easy, Tiger



I spotted this Stella McCartney Tiger tee at the weekend and I couldn't walk away. What a gorgeous print. I'm a huge fan of the Stella McCartney kids range. Doesn't Jack look cute? We have teamed it with the American Apparel tri-bend cardi and jeans from Zara kids.
Below, Jack shows me how a helicopter flies. He's gonna be a pilot. Just like Jack senior. Aww.

Love at the Pier


Today mister and I went for a walk at Oxford Island. Jack was most excited to see the ducks. Tiny here, wore his American Apparel kids fisherman jumper (My husband and I both own identical ones in our size. Birds of a feather we are!) and his kids 5 pocket jeans. The plaid shirt is from baby Zara and he's hopping about in his wee green toddler Vans. The ribbed hat was a bargain from H&M. It can hardly contain all that thick curly blond hair he has sprung. What a babe. 

Happy weekend m'friends. Have a great one.

Out to Play



I have been eyeing up the very funky kids clothing brand Boys&Girls lately. Jack and I were out a'playing this morning, so the Boys&Girls comfy Out to Play sweatshirt was an appropriate choice. The whole range is organic, don't you know. And it's their second birthday today. So happy birthday to our chums at Boys&Girls. We love your stuff. And I'm totes delighted to be able to offer our readers 10% off their whole order with the code BGJACK. Thanks B&G!
