What Has Lexie Been Wearing This Week

Trendy Tot Thursday  (#TT_Thursday) is a great little link up, where you showcase something that your child has been wearing this week. If it's new or old anything goes. 

I'm so late with my post this week, this week has been so hectic with everything. I've tried to get Lexie wearing trousers this week as much as I can ( she literally hates them). Her knees are so bad at the moment with grazes and bruises that I wanted to give them a break with some padding if she fell over again. 

The 3/4 leggings are from a bundle pack from TU, they are pretty simple with little button detail on the side. The pack of three was £11. 

The Cinderella top I got new from a local selling page for £4 before the summer.

My Likes & Loves Of This Month.

Honestly this month has been a huge mix of emotions, I think I've been up and down more times than a yo yo. I've really had to think long and hard of what has made me smile this month. The Summer holidays have had me exhausted and drained, won't get me wrong I love having them off but for some reason. 

Trip To Legoland - The only thing that we really wanted to do this holiday, we have Merlin passes and we went about three years ago and we really wanted to go back. 

I got a job, passed my online training and I'm just waiting for my CRB to come back so I can start. This is a huge thing for me as I haven't worked for over 4 years. Now that my youngest is starting school next month, it's perfect for me to get back out there and start earning some money for myself. 

My Vivienne Westwood bag arrived from my competition win and its stunning, still a bit unreal that's it's actually mine. 

I've watched the kids grow up the last few weeks and it's been nice to sit back and take it all in. Sometimes to and fro the school, teas, homework and bedtime routine can be hard in term time. It's been nice to have a bit more relaxed attitude. I've put together ten of my favourite photos from the summer holidays so far.

My Quirky Retro Accessory Wishlist

I really am a fan of retro pieces, I am pretty shy in my personally but I love bright, bold mad unique things. I've put together some items that are on my Wishlist at the moment that have caught my eye and I would love to own. 

Garden Party Doll Shoe Bracelet - $40.00

I love this simple idea of using fashion shoes to add on to a bracelet. The Garden Party Doll Shoe Bracelet is made using approximately 50-60 fashion shoes and strung on heavy-duty elastic cord. 

Space Invaders Earrings - £2.99 

Punky pins 80's gamer earrings, I think everyone remembers space invaders don't they. I love the adorable button earrings. 

Retro Gamer Shoulder Bag - £24.99 

This is fantastic and I remember a certain gaming device was all the rage when I was growing up. This spacious BagBoy is definitely a winner. 

White Chocolate Mouse Ring - £4.50

Love the quirky cute creamy-white mouse. This bring back some memories I used to get these in my pick a mix. Will just have to remember it's not edible.

Roller Disco Tatty Divine - £35.00

I loved the look of this necklace and I had a similar pair when I was small. I used to love my skates even if I wasn't good on them.

My Little Pony & Troll Necklace From Ivy Bell Designs - £12

I came across Ivy Bell Designs when a friend had liked and shared a competition post on their page. I'm a fan of the collar necklaces and have been for a while. There are lots of bold and bright designs to choose from. The page also takes on custom designs if you have an idea in mind. The My Little Pony is my favourite, plus Lexie is a huge pony fan. Then the troll one just reminds me of when I used to collect trolls in every size, shape and colour.

Care Bears Funshine Bracelet - £9.99

I love the retro rules website it has some fun and different designs on to remind you of your childhood. I love this retro handmade charm bracelet featuring my ultimate favourite Care Bear Funshine.

New Kids Menu At Strada Birmingham Mailbox.

Last week we got invited to Strada for a make our own pizza session and to check out the new kids menu. The new menu has been tasted, tested and approved by children. Strada is taking family-friendly to the next level by launching their tempting kids menu, full of fresh, real food and is breaking from the high street trend of offering a great dish selection for grown ups but often limited, less fresh options (like deep fried nuggets or burgers) for kids. 

The restaurant group has listened to their customers and understands how important it is for parents to provide a quality, delicious and affordable meal for the whole family. Strada’s Head Chef, a parent himself, set out to greatly improve the new kids menu; now serving up dishes like baked fresh market fish, made-from-scratch veggie risotto and higher welfare British steak. Also including starters such as veggie sticks with tomato sauce and the side option of green salad with every kids’ main, plus juice or milk to drink.

The kids had a great day, decorating their pizzas then getting the chance to eat them after too. The menu was great full of fresh and tasty food. It's nice to see a fresh grown up menu but in a kids way too.  


Veggie dippers - Carrot and cucumber sticks, baby tomatoes and a tomato sauce.

Garlic flatbread with mozzarella.

Mains ( comes with your choice of fries or side salad) 

Baked market fish fillet with lemon and Mayo 

Chargrilled 6oz British steak - Higher welfare, grain fed beef for Northamptonshire.


A scoop of Jude's artisan ice cream in your choice of chocolate, strawberry or vanilla.

During the development stages of the new kids meals, Strada engaged with a panel of official judges – both parents and their little ones – to review and feedback on potential dishes and menu games. You can even see the kid judges’ ‘stamp of approval’ (their little signatures) displayed on every Strada kids menu. This new bundle for little foodies under 12 includes a starter, main course, dessert and drink all for the affordable price of £6.50 – plus fun games and stickers.

To further celebrate the launch of their new kids menu, Strada is also launching a brand new competition in a few weeks where they’ll be giving away a family meal for five, which guests will be able to enter to win at

Thank you for inviting us to try out the new menu the kids had a blast.
