Oslen Edit


If there's anyone's wardrobe I'd wanna raid it would be the Olsen twins. My god.
I've become slightly obsessed over on Pinterest with them, have they ever got an outfit wrong? Usually, you look back at photos and think OH GOD what were they thinking?! 
They have such a strong sense of style a perfect beautiful blend between bohemian and
Parisian. Free flowing and rarely figure-hugging. Theres too much hype on having to show your figure off ... why? for whom? 

Their look at the moment is very dark but the layers and length are still there. I prefer the archive fashion especially Mary Kate in this kimono est 2006



The layers of embelishment mixed with jewels and belt have me all kinds of dribbling.




So heres my curated edit from the shops, click the images to shop!


And of course a little more inspo...

I am so conflicted with these because I am obsessed! I couldn't love them anymore, I think they're perfect if you want to move away from the wooden train tracks and although there's something similar like tape tracks there is nothing in the same league as these. 

As they are made from rubber this means they can be placed anywhere from carpets to sandy or rocky beaches...well actually pretty much everywhere think sides of baths or inclines. It's an open-ended toy that can be added to, with birthdays and Christmases, amazing for an invitation to play set up, HOWEVER... I do think they're overpriced. You could argue the cost per wear in which case that would soon diminish as it is a toy that kids don't grow out of... I mean heck I'm enjoying playing with them, both sides are printed so there are endless possibilities. I just really do struggle with the amount you get! Especially when in your mind you have this massive track that goes from your front door, around the table, and into the garden. That's a student loan. I  joke. 

You can't put a price on something that will boost their imagination. At least that's what I tell myself everytime I pull my card out for India.

One thing to note is that India can't click them together at 17 months, she can play and goes 'brummm' with her cars but does get frustrated if they pull apart. That's why my playtime number was knocked down a few.

packaging is worth a mention as its very minimal and the box it comes in is great for storage as its tightly packed in so you wont get offended with oversized boxes or have to find something to keep them in.

Even though I'm conflicted if you have a kid/kids that love cars, lorries, trains, planes... okay anything with wheels this is a must-have.
If you can't afford it try the tapes I found below. A fun alternative however is a lot less permanent.





Animal Tape Rescue




Okay as you can see, it takes no time to set up!
All you need is a firm surface... think cardboard, wall, baking tray. Some toys the more varied the better and of course sticky tape. I used a mixture of left over washi tape and the usual one that doesn't stick to anything ... 


 I used half of a cardboard box so i could mix up the placement, I then spread out the toys and taped them down. 

You can vary the level of difficulty by using different sized objects - doesn't have to be animals but of course with our littles you need to draw them in somehow! The larger the object the easier it’s likely to be to remove from the board. Alternatively you can add flatter objects that are stuck closer to the board. These will be harder to remove. You can also add more tape to the toys so they are stuck a lot more than a toy with only one piece of tape over it. 
The object of this game is for your little to rescue them from the tape. Such a sneaky fun way to distract them and get them working on their fine motor skills! Fine motor skills are so important, children need them for writing, drawing, grasping objects making this a ideal activity to do with them with all the pinching, pulling, problem solving. 


It's a great way to see what toys they're drawn to first! India's obsessed with Sonny Angels at the moment! 
Think about this one for meals out or car / plane journeys! It wont take you 2 minutes and you can set it up the night before!
