We are delighted to share a sneak peek of Abeille's cellular blankets. Daisy & our official Abeille photographer Alan Wright worked really hard this week on a location photoshoot at the gorgeous pure white lines in Horsham. We can't wait to share the finished result... along with our new website, exciting times!!! www.alanwrightphotography.co.uk 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 palette, by increasing the size to make it bigger and by increasing the weight to make it bouncy and soft on your baby's skin. The first blanket you use for your newborn is treasured forever. The ABEILLE mummies have created the perfect layer & we know you will love them just as much as we do.... Michelle X

Baby ballet in the summer time Florence is really enjoying her ballet classes which she has been doing for a year now. She is just about to get moved up to the next group in September now that she has turned 3 years old. Over the summer Miss Kelly is doing pop up classes around Brighton and Hove to take advantage of the days that are gorgeous Sunshine and last week it was just gorgeous. The girls all dressed up in their ballet gear headed down to Hove lawns for the first pop up session and when the music started they pirouetted around on the grass. Miss Kelly encourages the Mummies to get involved so that the toddlers don't get shy and in our group this is not a problem.... Miss Kelly has a dancing background and is a wonderful teacher for the girls, in any environment she manages to keep their interest which as all mummies know is a hard task with a toddler. It was only a few weeks ago that I was told that you can hire Miss Kelly for private parties! Wish I had known for Florences Birthday so I will keep it in mind for next year. We are really looking forward to the next class which is going to be held in St. Anns wells gardens Hove. 10.30am if anyone wants to come along.

Enjoy the sun everyone,
Flossie has a friend to stay My friend Charlotte and I were both on our own for the night with no available babysitters so decided to combine our situation and have a girls night in at my house. It can get realy hard (when you are trying to keep to a routine with your little ones) emotionally, especially if your partner works away or does evening shifts. It can be lonely and before you know it you are in bed at 9pm... as Jon always says "Kids don't change your life!" haha! We went to the Dyke pub and kitchen for dinner and then walked them back to get them worn out. They sang the whole way which also resulted in squeals of laughter. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed with love for Florence and her close friends you just want to burst, a passer-by stopped me and said how absolutely gorgeous they were. When we got home I ran them a bath which for the first time that week Florence got in without me having to persuade/bribe/argue with her. Kids love having joint baths! Then at 7.30 we put them to bed and they were fast asleep by 8pm! I am going to put this down to a one-off because if they are anything like me and Charlotte when we were little we stayed up for hours chatting! Charlotte and I cracked open the fizz and had time to have a good catch up which was so lovely, the girls each woke up once but settled straight back to sleep. I highly recommend this for all mummies. Beats long nights alone any day! The girls were very excited when they got up together, I made them both some breakfast and they cuddled up together on the sofa - so sweet.
Sleepovers are the way forward girls!!!
Energy balls addict I LOVE energy balls. If you have a sweet tooth and are trying to curb the sweet counter in your local supermarket then make yourself a batch of these! I have made a few varieties and these ones were delicious. I basically got out all the dried fruit and nuts that I had in my cupboard and whizzed them together, coated half in cocoa and half in desiccated coconut. I chopped up:- A small bag of dates hanful of apricots A small bag of cranberries A small bag of brazil nuts Then added:- 1 tbsp tahini 1 tbsp honey 1 tbsp coconut oil
I put all of the ingredients into the blender and whizzed until all of the nuts and berries were coated. The ingredients should be like a fudge. Using a teaspoon I dived in, one scoop makes the perfect size for your ball. I then rolled it using my hands, covered it in cocoa and put it on the plate. I used half coconut half cocoa but you can use anything you like, even more nuts! Once I had used up all of my mixture and all the balls were made and covered I placed them in the fridge to set. Florence absolutely adores them and recently I replaced the tahini for peanut butter and they were a real winner! She even likes making them with me which is a really fun activity for a toddler. They are perfect for out and about and will impress your friends and family. They are so easy to make yet taste amazing! Use literally any nuts or dried fruit and see what you end up with. Enjoy!

A wedding! It is that time of year that at my age there is nearly a wedding every month, sometimes consecutive weekends. The bride and groom have been planning their special day for a year or possibly two (In Sophie's case probably since she was a little girl) to ensure that they throw a wedding to remember. We got a message the previous evening to warn us that there might be traffic so to leave early, which we did.... 7am early!! Luckily we had a pretty smooth sailing journey which got us up to the venue in good time so we got a few hours to admire the beautiful Hengrave Hall. We got shown to our room and whilst we got ourselves unpacked I propped Florence up on the very beautiful bed to watch a bit of Disney's FROZEN. The ipad comes everywhere with us these days, I swore I would never become one of those parents that bring it out in a pub or over dinner but I have succumbed to the 21st century lifestyle (and we get 20 minutes of uninterupted peace). When we were called from our room we made our way down to the most beautiful church. Sophie and Neil most definately did not scrimp on the flower arrangements which were eye catching to say the least. We saw a message on the Order of service which asked for no pictures to be taken in the church...... so obviously this prompted me and my crazy family to do a quick selfie!! On the hottest day of the year that we have had in England I was very thankful that they had not gone for a full mass wedding like my own (2 hours!!) and when got out we threw home made confetti over the new Mr & Mrs Spencer. After drinks on the lawn we made our way through to the hall for lunch, only then did I realise I had not fed Florence for nearly 6 hours.... thats why she was getting grumpy! Next wedding I will remeber a packed lunch for her. I think this was during the best mans speech! And again, had to get a flower picture because they were so spectacular! Now I have not used a pushchair for Florence for about a year now... but we thought it might be useful on this occasion. She slept for an hour at lunch time and then jumped back in it for a rest a bit later. Well worth remembering for toddlers when you have a long day ahead. It also gave me an extra hour of photo booth/dancing and catching up with the family before we had to retire (with a few drinks for the room). Sophie had thought of everything and even supplied flip flops for when the shoes had to come off! Congratulations Mr & Mrs Spencer... see you next weekend for another wedding! Daisy x
