With the kiddies firmly back at school and the wetter months approaching (how are those morning thunderstorms mama?), it’s easy to feel a twinge of the end-of-summer blues. But don’t fret, there’s nothing better to lift your mood than a spot of shopping and we’ve compiled a fabulous lust-list that’s sure to make you smile! From the ultimate hair care oil and chic kid’s rain boots to a stylish brolly and quirky little backpack, here are our top product picks this month for busy mamas and brilliant bubbas.
Marc by Marc Jacobs Doodle Print Umbrella
Ahh Singers… as we move into the rainy season, it becomes essential that we keep an umbrella close at hand. Pop this stylish printed Marc Jacobs brolly in your baby bag to stay chic and dry through the wetter months. An easy-to-use push button means no more fussing with both hands while out and about with munchkin should the heavens open all of a sudden (which they tend to do), plus its lightweight and slim-fit design means it can be brought practically everywhere. You can thank us later.
