BABY STYLE: A week of outfits #20

Christmas preparations are really stepping up a gear now, with a big gift shopping day on Black Friday. I definitely didn't wake up at 3.30am and spend 1.5 hours looking at the online deals that had been released at midnight and I certainly didn't regret it in the morning when I hadn't bought one thing!! Whoops. However I managed to get a couple of good bargains online while Isabella was napping, thank goodness for her 1.5 hour naps lately! I had made a very long list of items I was looking for and was actually pretty impressed with the variety of deals available. Can't wait to receive my goodies now!

If I'm honest this Christmas Gift Guide is my absolute favourite, receiving food related gifts probably excites me the most and I tend to be drawn to them to give others too. There are lots of interesting, unique food gifts that would appeal to people of all ages included in this gift guide, so let's get on with it...

BABY: Little Green Radicals A/W Collection

Little Green Radicals is a company that have created the most beautiful range of organic, natural baby and children clothes, gifts and skincare. They were one of the first companies in the United Kingdom to get Fairtrade certification for cotton, as well as being organic too. Supporting companies that use Fairtrade products is important because it enables growers and farmers across the world to have a better standard of living. Who wouldn't want to support that? I certainly do and the fact that the cotton is also organic makes it perfect for babies sensitive skin. I love that the Little Green Radicals website allows you to see the people who make their clothes in India, it shows how much they value every single member of their worldwide team.

GIFT INSPIRATION: Becky Bettesworth Vintage Seaside Posters

Becky Bettesworth lives in South Devon, where she creates the most beautiful posters inspired by the classic railway posters of the 1930's. The posters are mostly based around various seaside towns around the United Kingdom, with some feel good quote posters added in for good measure. There's something so nostalgic about seaside towns, with their cute beach huts, well loved landmarks, fresh fish and chips, rickety old piers and rustic beaches. Becky's posters encapsulate all of these attributes so cleverly, taking you back to a much simpler time before technology and our every busy lives took over.

WEANING: 3 Baby Friendly Risotto Recipes

Risotto makes a delicious, warming dinner for us adults but due to the high salt levels in stock and Parmesan cheese, not to mention the wine, make it unsuitable for babies. However it doesn't mean it has to be off the menu, this very low salt version is baby friendly and very adaptable to whatever you have in your fridge/freezer/cupboards. When I'm making risotto for Isabella I tend to make a big batch of the base risotto (no additional ingredients added), then split it into three bowls and add any other ingredients. This way helps to save time and also means you can stock up the freezer with baby friendly meals for nights there's just no time to cook.

This gift guide is the one that is the closest to my heart this year, as it will be our little babies first Christmas. It feel incredibly strange that I am buying for a baby this year, it's a dream come true and I feel so lucky. As with everything in the baby world, there are so many cute gifts out there but these are my favourites and ones I know your babies will love too!
