So foxxxxy

Ohhhhhhh dear. I’ve had so many problems with the site over the last two weeks. I won’t say anything more lest I jinx myself.

Instead I’ll direct your attention to this.

If you’ve left your Christmas card purchasing ’til the last minute might I sway you in the direction of these stunning foxy numbers from France Illustration. I think they are super cute!

Put a fox on it!

Smiggle diaries

One thing Smiggle is known for is their use of vibrant, bold colours. If you’ve ever walked into a Smiggle store you’ll know what I mean. All of their products are categorised by colour which is a fantastic way to shop.

Their diaries are something else though. Check out the brightest, most dazzling 2014 diaries that the kids will love!
