With the November chill in the air we were very excited when the lovely team at Vertbaudet asked if Imogen would like to try one of their most popular winter coats, the Girl’s Reversible Parka. This is a super warm and stylish coat that will see Imogen snug and cosy throughout winter and into spring next year.
This beautiful padded Vertbaudet winter coat is reversible and showerproof. It has fleecy mittens attached by press studs to keep little fingers toasty and warm when playing outside. Imogen loves the mittens and having them attached to the coat ensures they won’t get lost and are always there to quickly slip on and off when we’re out and about.
The Vertbaudet Girl’s Reversible Parka can be worn both ways with one side displaying little printed hearts and the other side in a plain pearly pink colour. To keep children extra warm the coat is zip fastening with concealed press studs for additional warmth.
I love the style of this Vertbaudet winter coat with an attached hood and elasticated hem for a puffball effect. I have been amazed at the number of compliments Imogen has received when wearing this coat, it is greatly admired for its warmth and style.
There are two side pockets on the front and a little inside pocket where you can put a photo of your child to help them find their coat if they’re at nursery or school. The Vertbaudet Girl’s Reversible Parka is machine washable and available in a variety of colours and sizes.
I am extremely impressed with the quality of the Vertbaudet Girl’s Reversible Parka. It has everything your child needs for going out in the winter months and retails for £35.

We were invited by the new children’s theatre company Ga Ga Theatre to see the stage performance of Up and Down. Up and Down is a heart-warming story about friendship, love and reaching for your dreams by multi-award winning author and illustrator Oliver Jeffers.
We had visited Toddler Time at the Greenwich Picturehouse cinema the week before so it was nice to be in a familiar environment for Imogen’s first theatre experience.
Up and Down is the debut production by the Ga Ga Theatre.
It’s an adaptation of the much loved book Up and Down by Oliver Jeffers and is showing at six London Picturehouse venues (Notting Hill, Clapham, Brixton, Greenwich, Hackney, Stratford East) until 3 November.
The Boy and the Penguin were larger than life characters who danced and shared their fun adventure to music.
The production was reasonably interactive and this worked well with the audience. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience of theatre and look forward to future performances by the Ga Ga Theatre.
Created by Rachael Richards and Katie Russell, the Ga Ga Theatre aims to make going to the theatre as stress free as possible, offering high quality productions available on a local basis.
Up and Down is suitable for babies and children up to the age of seven years old. The performance lasted for 45 minutes.

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Zalando and kindly asked if I would like to experience shopping at Zalando.co.uk. To be perfectly honest, I hadn’t heard of Zalando before and I quickly jumped online to have a look. The first thing that stood out to me was the incredible range of products available for the whole family. Everything from shoes to children’s clothing to women’s fashion to men’s sportswear and homeware.
In the Children’s Wear section I discovered a beautiful linen dress from the Danish clothing brand Noa Noa that I chose for Imogen. It is slightly too large for her to wear now but it will fit perfectly next summer. I can just imagine this pretty dress being worn on a summer’s day or for a special occasion.
I love this colourful and fun hat rack by Present Time in Homeware. It is designed in Holland and would look great in a nursery or child’s bedroom. The brightly coloured balls are the perfect size for hanging children’s coats, hats and items of clothing on.
We placed it on Imogen’s bedroom wall and find it is wonderful for holding her coats, hats, scarves, bags and blankets. It conveniently keeps Imogen’s outdoor accessories handy and organised for when we’re rushing out of the door to get to the park!
Having previously bought items of clothing for Imogen from the Danish brand, Name It, I decided to select a couple of long sleeved tops and leggings from Zalando. These are comfortable for everyday play and wash really well.
From Zalando Home I selected a set of beautiful hand blown glass hurricane lamps from Germany. Both purple, one is almost transparent and the other is a darker shade. They look stunning when the sun shines through and with a lit candle they provide a glow of ambient light.
My shopping experience at Zalando.co.uk was fun, easy and it opened my eyes to an online store that conveniently sells everything you need for both your family and your home. I’ve bookmarked Zalando and will be shopping online again very soon.
Disclosure: Zalando offered me a voucher that I used to buy these items in exchange for this sponsored post. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
