I have always been a fan of Cotton On Kids, Cotton On and my favourite of course being Typo! I LOVE when they have sales and I will spend hours in there! B is going through a girly phase (think pink, glitter, tights and boots) and add a dash of black and you have the picture! Today we went to Cotton On Kids and they were having a 50% sale! Be still my beating heart! We bought some amazing things there including a pair of pink tights with gold strips and she even chose a top with pink sequins!!!!!!! I wanted a top with bunny ears and the cutest face but they didn’t have my size! Sigh! Wish they had all these prints when I was a kid!! I have a few pics but will post them on InstagramHave a look and let me know what you think?
Cotton On Kids new Snoopy range
Cotton On Kids has launched a new versatile Snoopy range with well designed tops, pants and leggings! The prices are reasonable and the designs are colourful but not too flamboyant. There is even a few Charlie Brown’s to be found! The material is nice and warm for the winter with a few lighter pieces for those that get hot quickly and refuse to believe that it is winter!
Go to your nearest Cotton On Kids and have a look, you will be pleasantly surprised!
“Typo, oh Typo how do I love thee, let me count the ways?”
I am a fan or actually I am a Typo addict! When we walk past the shop in the Mall B says “Look Mom, it’s your shop”. Why the fascination you may ask? Well three simple words: Quirky and Super Cool!
They have some really interesting designs from a Pugg themed range to a Cat theme range to a Pineapple theme range! I also love their notebooks that have dividers in the books and pockets where you can store things. They have large and small books and each of them have crazy but fun messages! The pillows are colourful and have sayings that make you laugh. Then there are the fridge magnets and cards! We have a few of magnets on our fridge and I have burst out laughing like a crazy person in the store quite a few times reading them. I also have a thing for cacti in interesting containers and some of my favorite holders (like the three teacup cacti holders connected to one) come from Typo. Another fantastic thing…coffee cups!
They often has sales and I have picked up THE most awesome gifts for people that seem incredibly expensive but they aren’t. You have to look closely when there is a sale as often the best things are at the bottom. The best and worst place to take me is to the Typo and Cotton On factory shops in Access Park in Kenilworth!!!! Talk about BARGAINS galore! The shop makes a Typo addict like myself sit holding the basket in the corner and rocking like back and forth..”My precious”!!!
Go and look at one of their shops or look at their Facebook page! You won’t be disappointed!
I love Cotton On Kids new Sleepwear range! With Winter slowly making itself known, the PJ’s are The cutest ever! They are bright and colourful and the whimsical tones, unique designs and quirky patterns are sure to make your little one feel all warm and fuzzy!
All girls that love to sparkle can, with the amazing selection of Easter and Miffy PJ sets, and boys can be little superheros in the retro Superman and Batman PJ sets (two forR400 or R299 each). Think gold, glitter and pretty! Teenagers are also taken care of with Free by Cotton On with the polka dot nightie (R299) and colourful PJ sets (R399). Have I mentioned that I love polka dots?
I also love the new printed tops and I have developed a thing for printed or pictures of bunnies and I am loving their designs! Bedtime outfits wouldn’t be complete without a character themed novelty gown R269, the hoods with floppy bunny ears or critter monster ears are sure to make for plenty of bedtime fun. Clue the Home Boots at R199 are perfect to keep those little toes snug for top to toe fun.
Cotton On KIDS also has a nice range of quirky cushions, fun accessories and comfy kids bedding from the Room range. The designs and colour pallet matches back with the new sleepwear collection and prices start at R149 for the pillowcases to R599 for the double quilt covers!
Cotton On Kids have the a wonderful range of clothes and I recommend you go have a look! You are welcome to send a pic of your little one wearing them and I will post it!
This week I think it’s time that I posted a nice recipe for hot chocolate and some yummy stew! What do you think? Something that is healthy though and not a million and one calories! Something banting or paleo but also yummy! Keep an eye out!
I love Spring! The smell of fresh flowers, green grass and walks at the beach. Ice-creams, picnics and braais without hoodies on. Lounging in chairs and cocktails with friends. Feeding the animals with B, going for long walks and smelling the daisies! And this isnt even Summer!
This also means pools, beaches and ponds and of course swimming! So B and I have been looking for a swimming costume for us both! Now don’t get me wrong but there are some costumes out there which will never see the time of day on my 4 year old! Maybe when she is 16 but at 4, there is more chances of pigs flying for the May Day Festival!!!
I really like the range that Cotton On has for kids that can be mixed-and-matched. The girls swimwear range (for ages 2 – 8) includes one pieces, bikinis, tankinis, boardies and rashies in a range of bright, bold colours and pictures of watermelons, lemon, cherries and ice-cream cones.
Palm trees, pineapples and octopuses are featured throughout the boys range (for ages 2 – 8) which boasts a pastel colour palette including peach, mint and yellow.
Cotton On KIDS’ tween category, Free by Cotton On (for ages 9 – 14), will also have a swimwear range with similar prints and colours to the KIDS’ collection but with slight variations to the styles, catering to older, more independent kids.
The costumes are really cute and you can get them at your local store. If you are from Cape Town, have a look at the Cotton On Factory shops at Access Park in Kenilworth and the one in Kuilsriver (big bargains). You can also look on their website
