Baby-friendly jewellery at last…

Most of the time the worlds of fashion and baby clash horribly. For example; sick on nice dress, nappy bag instead of pretty bag, tears whenever we go into Topshop (Freya’s…and then eventually mine). So when I read about a new necklace which is actually a baby teether I smiled at the sheer brilliance of it. I used to love big, bold necklaces and I still have a jewellery box full of them but for the last two years my neck has been woefully bare. I still remember the sharp sting of a chain being gripped around my neck, or the day Freya actually caused a bead explosion in a coffee shop. How could I forget?!

Necklaces became a thing of the past, but now all that has changed! Clever mummy Jenny McLaughlan has designed GUMIGEM, a necklace with a silicone pendant which is perfect for teething babes to have a chomp on. It can even be sterilised or put in the dishwasher. Denise Van Outen has already raved about hers in her Prima Baby column and Michelle Heaton’s been wearing one too. The best bit of course is that it won’t break the bank, you can buy them for between £10-£12.50 here.

Grease is the word…

Last night I got well and truly pampered – and finally I’m not talking nappies! We were spoilt with champagne, canapes and manicures at Cowshed in Covent Garden, what more could a girl want? The chance to try out the new Grease Dance game on Kinect for Xbox 360! There’s nothing like having your nails done while learning the dance routine for Greased Lightnin for a bit of multi-tasking. If you loved the 80s classic, this game has to be at the top of your Christmas list. With 12 songs to sing karaoke to, dance routines and games to play, you can get the whole family involved…
