Here's a little toddler Autumn lookbook I filmed over the last week! I love Autumn clothing for children, all the pretty colours and tights and wellies... So I wanted to show off a few of my favourite outfits for Alice. Most of the clothing is from mini Boden, I am obsessed with their pretty clothing.
On the last day I forgot to take my big camera (baby brain!) so it's filmed on my iPhone, but you know, I think it works! Let me know what you think of the video!
At the weekend we did something I have been wanting to do for ages and ages... fly a kite! It was a spur of the moment thing as I was watching the weather forecast on Wednesday and saw it was going to be super windy at the weekend. So I bought this little pocket kite off of amazon and on the Saturday we trekked to Box Hill in Dorking to fly it! It was so funny to watch Dave and Alice run about trying to get the kite up into the air. Eventually they got the hang of it!
If you want, you can watch my vlog from the day at the end of this post. Thanks to everyone who has subscribed to me on YouTube so far. It's so much fun to make little family videos and I love capturing our day to day life.
Last weekend, we went to Brighton! It was somewhere we have been meaning to visit for a while, so when we woke up in the mood for a day out last Saturday, we couldn't think of a better place to go!
I thought I would share some of the places we didn't get to visit but would love to next time. Sometimes when you are travelling with small children, you just end up in one place for hours while they nap (Thomas) or scoot up and down (Alice!).
The Sea Life Centre: Simply did not have enough time to visit this one! I think it's more of a day out in itself to be honest. But I would love to go and explore those underwater creatures!
Scoop and Crumb: This amazing ice-cream shop looks incredible! We passed it a couple of times, but had already got Alice an ice-cream on the pier so decided against two in one day... The weather wasn't exactly ice-cream weather either, so she was a little cold. But it did look amazing...
The Tic Toc Cafe: I've heard good things about this cafe! It's beautiful decoration is enough to make me want to go instagram crazy. It's also situated in the Lanes which in itself is a place we didn't do much exploring of.
The Lanes: As I said before, we didn't get much of a chance to have a good wonder down the Lanes in Brighton. We got caught up feeding Thomas and chasing Alice on her scooter!
The Royal Pavilion: We drive past this and it looked amazing! I would have loved to explore it and we definitely will next time.
There is so much to see and do in Brighton and being only an hour from London, it is definitely a place we will be exploring more in the future. If you don't live near enough Brighton to justify a day visit, there are plenty of Hotels in Brighton too!
