The Sisterhood of Motherhood

This week Simlac, a baby formula company, released a very honest ad that aimed to highlight that despite our different beliefs we are all parents first. So put down your fingers and stop wagging them in front of other mums’ (and dads’) faces.

They say “We believe it’s time to embrace mothers who choose to embrace motherhood. Time to put down the fingers and the subtle suggestions. Because no two of us are the same, but we’re all in this together. The sisterhood has only one rule. Nourish each other the same way we nourish our children. And, just like the sister who’s got your back, we’re there to help you get through the first few days and months of motherhood with confidence — and zero judgment. The way it should be.”

Hoorah! You can watch the ad that went viral here.

Stella McCartney Kids Cherry Boots

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how much fun these Stella McCartney Kids cowboy boots are for little girls. Made from faux leather and covered in cherry starts, they will jazz up any outfit from jeggings to a dress and can transition easily from winter into summer too. I can see the my little Bug walking round in circles  just to make the tassels sway back and forth. Come to think of it, I’d probably do the same thing if they cam in an adult size.
