Daisy Roots Shoes

| March 22, 2013

I was contacted a few weeks ago by Daisy Roots and asked if I’d like to review a pair of their beautiful handmade leather shoes. I love supporting British companies so I was very excited when I discovered that Daisy Roots have been making shoes in Northamptonshire since 1995.

After visiting their lovely website my mind was full of delightful little leather shoes and the next step was to make a decision as to which pair I’d like to review. The following morning when Imogen asked for an apple I had my mind made up! I chose a pair of beautifully rich purple leather shoes with green apples and flowers on the front.

Imogen loves her new Daisy Roots leather shoes. They keep her feet cosy and warm on our wooden floors and stop her from slipping when she’s running around and playing. For an active toddler they’re the perfect indoor shoe!

What I love most about Daisy Roots shoes:

  • They have suede anti-slip soles
  • There’s room for growth
  • They’re made from soft, breathable leather
  • They fit perfectly around the ankle and are extremely soft
  • They’re made from eco-friendly leather and are chrome free
  • They’re vegetable dyed so are safe for babies who like to chew everything

They look gorgeous when worn with tights or trousers.

Daisy Roots make leather shoes for babies and toddlers in a variety of sizes from newborn to 4 years old.¬†They’re recommended for indoor and pram use and can be cleaned easily with a damp cloth.

I think they’d make the perfect gift for a baby or child and there’s the option to have your shoes packaged in a gift box. Daisy Roots provide free delivery within the UK.

You can find out more about these beautiful leather shoes for babies and children at Daisy Roots and on Facebook.

Christmas Shopping Already?

| October 29, 2012

shoesWe hit the shops this weekend to see Christmas trees dressed in lights and to browse all the pretty Christmas decorations that have started to adorn the shops.

I took the opportunity to step out in my favourite pumps by Gabor. It made a nice change after wearing boots almost daily since the start of autumn.

Living in London I expect the shops to have a constant stream of foot traffic but I was shocked by the number of Christmas shoppers. Rolls of Christmas wrapping paper were being snapped off the shelves.

I overheard conversations about the Christmas gifts people have already bought for their loved ones. I can’t stop thinking that it’s still October and there’s 8 weeks and 1 day until Christmas!

Some of the pretty Christmas Decorations we found at John Lewis.

Imogen needed a new pair of shoes and we found a beautiful pair of classically simple dark red leather shoes at Startrite.

Starchild Leather Baby Shoes

| March 17, 2012

Janet Middleton, founder and designer of Starchild Shoes kindly sent us a pair of leather baby shoes to try.

Starchild Shoes design and make the most beautiful leather shoes for babies, toddlers and children.

We received a pair of Orchid baby booties from Starchild’s Little Petals range. They are a brilliant pink colour with orchid designs on each shoe in a soft pink and black.

I was really surprised at just how soft and comfortable the booties are. They’re 100% leather, allowing baby’s feet room to grow and the ability to breathe.

All of Starchild’s Shoes are made in a traditional shoe factory in the UK with an emphasis on sustainability, caring for the environment and customer service.

Baby shoe sizes start from newborn, keeping baby’s feet warm and stylish from birth. Shoe sizes go all the way up to 10 years old so as your children grow they can continue to wear unique, fashionable and comfortable leather shoes.

You can be sure of the individuality of Starchild Shoes as they use high quality, soft leather from Italian tanneries in exclusive colours for Starchild Shoes.

Their shoes conform to European safety standards and contain no harmful chemicals or dyes, making it safe for when baby is teething and decides to have a little gnaw on his or her booties!

Presented in gift boxes or pouch bags, Starchild Shoes make the perfect present. Starchild offer free UK delivery.
