No crispy blanket for MY new born baby!

Michelle

No crispy blanket for MY new born baby! As a new mummy to be I was very excited to go shopping & purchase all of the gorgeous things on my 'essential baby list' it was such an exciting day, Ben drove me straight from my 20 week scan to a well known department store & we 'Oh'd & Ah'd' at all of the cute little clothes & beautiful toys, that is until we reached the Cellular blankets....

20140712-080348-29028668.jpg

I searched for a sales assistant & queried if I'd selected the right item, it said on the top of my personally researched list 'Cellular blanket' but all I could find on the shelves were pastel crispy blankets with holes in them? The sales assistant kindly confirmed that they were in fact the right blankets & reiterated the small holes in them keep your baby warm, without the danger of them overheating. I'm a very conscious of safety for babies & reluctantly purchased a few packets of the crispy blankets for my bulging bump but wasn't happy...

When we arrived home I decided to ask lots of mummies about the Cellular blankets & they all agreed that these blankets were a very necessary item, but let's be honest they are not pretty! 6 months after having Oliver I was still unhappy about the blanket I used daily & luckily Daisy agreed that the cellular blanket really was due a revamp & the first product in our baby range agreed!

Abeille Cellular blankets are not the basic, bland, crispy pieces of material that you are told to buy on your baby list. Abeille Cellular blankets are Simple – YES… Beautiful – YES… Essential – YES. We have taken a simple, essential blanket and transformed it by using a beautiful colour pallet, increased the weight to make it bouncy and soft on your babies skin. We can't wait to share them with you, No more crispy blankets for newborn babies! Essential items do not have to be basic, the ABEILLE mummies have created the perfect layer!!!

The launch of Abeille's first product!

Daisy

The launch of Abeille's first product! Sorry for the delay uploading this post, It has taken up until now for everything to sink in. On Saturday we packed our bags (all eight of them!!) and got on the road by 8am on our route to Harrogate. Michelle and I were launching the first product for our Abeille Baby range. The Harrogate International baby fair is the UK's premier nursery trade event attracting almost every manufacturer and supplier of baby goods in the UK.... hence why we are VERY excited!! 20140327-192118.jpg We didn't even have time to unpack after our five hour drive so headed straight to the fair. The product we are launching are Cellular blankets.... but these essential items are not the basic, bland, crispy pieces of material that you are told to buy on your baby list. These Cellular blankets are Simple - YES... Beautiful - YES... Essential - YES. We have taken a simple, essential blanket and transformed it by using a beautiful colour palet, increased the weight to make it bouncy and soft on your babies skin, (it is after all the only blanket you will be requiring for the first few months) and worked really hard on a very stylish logo so that you will be wanting ONLY an Abeille cellular blanket for your baby. 20140327-192127.jpg It was a last minute idea that we exhibit, we only found out about the show about a month before, so with an incredible amount of effort - or I should really say Blood, sweat and tears from myself, Michelle and our manufacturers, we were very proud of what we achieved. Our stand looked beautiful and ready to entice any buyer passing by! 20140327-192137.jpg Michelle's beautiful little girl Charlotte was our lucky mascot indeed. We got an incredible amount of interest/orders and were pretty overwhelmed by some of the buyers that came to speak to us. 20140327-192146.jpg The days were spent on our feet from 8am to 6pm, chatting to interested buyers and getting tips from our lovely friends on neighbouring stands. 20140327-192159.jpg The evenings were spent drinking wine and filling in the boys with the days events. I officially have the best BBP (Best business partner) EVER! 20140327-192225.jpg Daddy day care went pretty smoothly. The boys were an amazing support to us, we couldn't have done it without them. Thank you Ben and Jon for everything - Best daddies ever! 20140327-192237.jpg Although they did learn the hard way that a day full of treats had concequences.... 20140327-192248.jpg Now I have a long list of people to call and email, designs to work on and meetings to arrange!! I do not know where to start??? But watch this space because in 3 months time Abeille Cellular blankets will be hitting the shelves... you saw it here first!

Lots of love and excited dancing round the lounge...

My top five stocking fillers for a toddler girl

Daisy

My top five stocking fillers for a toddler girl I've gone a bit wild this year, I can remember saying to my sister in law before I had Florence that it was ridiculous the amount of money she spent on her kids at Christmas! Her answer was 'just wait till you have one of your own'. I'm glad I didn't say I would eat my hat because that is exactly what I would be doing right now. Every time is say enough! I buy another present! Anyway here are my top 5.... Of many.

Fairy doorz Florence is obsessed with everything fairy since watching Tinkerbell at my Mums house. So when searching "fairies" on the internet I came across this wonderful idea! You attach the door to the skirting board somewhere in the house, we will put it in the bedroom, and I can't wait to create a magical world for her to broaden her imagination with. Under £10 and perfect gift or a stocking filler. 20131218-204020.jpg http://www.fairydoorz.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&path=59_66&product_id=63

Shopping list Florence will love this. Recently she has been running up to me with a pad and pencil saying "what do you want to buy?" I tell her and she runs off to get it. This Orchard Toys fun matching memory game. Take turns to turn over the cards to be first to fill your trolley with all the items on your shopping list. 20131218-204032.jpg http://www.littlesheep-learning.co.uk/shopping-list-p-24.html

Joules junior coin purse I hope it is not me that has an inquisitive toddler rummaging through my purse at every opportunity? Florence gets everything out and through desperation I just shove it all back in - this is not great when at the shops! So I have bought her a little purse of her own and this one is pretty cute. £6.95 and under £10 20131218-204041.jpg http://www.joules.com/Girls/Accessories/Jnr-Purse/Girls-Coin-Purse/Ruby-Floral?id=P_JNRPURSE%7CRUBFLRL

Tinkerbell doll I like the idea that Florence has one toy that she plays with all the time, she has about 10 babies (called Charlotte after Michelle's new addition) they all are undressed and grubby so I'm hoping she will love this! It is £12.50 so perfect for any kind of present. 20131218-204051.jpg http://m.disneystore.co.uk/tinker-bell-flutter-doll/mp/57928/1335501/

Olive pearl bib necklace from Stella and dot. I hosted a Stella and dot party recently and when my friend Steph pulled out this necklace and bracelet Florence grabbed it straight away. It is pretty elaborate for a stocking filler but as this is her first Christmas that she understands I thought this would be a special treat. £29 for the set and she will wear this with her Party dress on Christmas Day. 20131218-204101.jpg http://www.stelladot.co.uk/ts/6sqkn1

5 days to go! Daisy x
