Let's Build a Snow Tiger!

I think we have finally mastered the art of layering for the cold and getting the kids to put on their gloves without protest. It has been really chilly this week and we are off to even colder climates in France for a week of skiing with friends and family next week so here’s hoping that we don’t have to spend most of the week telling Gabriel to spread out his fingers and stop clenching his fist when putting gloves on, otherwise there won’t be a lot of skiing! Sebastian has been counting down the sleeps and is insisting that we build a snow tiger...we shall see how that goes! 

 

Well if we must go skiing just to test out products for you!

The whole philosophy of Eat Sleep Love and our approach to the items that we fill the showroom with is, have we or would we use it ourselves and would we recommend it to friends. We like to test drive all the pushchairs that we stock, we put together the cots ourselves and let the boys give them an endurance test by letting them play and jump around in them. All the bedding that we stock gets tried out at home and put through its paces by being washed and dried. When people come to me as expectant parents, totally overwhelmed by what is on offer I want to genuinely be able to recommend a product and find something that is right for their needs.

For the next week we are going to be out of the cosy comforts of home and in to the luxury ski resort of Courcheval. There are a few other little people joining us on the trip so we are going to have some fun with some of the products that we stock and see if they stand up in the cold and snowy conditions. Keep an eye out on our social media for pics, videos and updates.

 

Wheels with skiis!

We have been a stockist for Mountain Buggy for a while now and we have yet to really test drive the Urban Jungle so we are taking a gorgeous nautical striped pushchair with us from the luxury collection and are so excited about using the skis which have just arrived with us.

Carrying a toddler up a mountain

I am a big fan of the Baby Bjorn Carrier One, it is so easy to put on and I like how you can adjust the weight distribution whilst the carrier is on, taking a bit more weight in either your hips or your shoulders and the back carry option for toddlers is comfy (even for a little chunk like Gabriel!) The Outdoor carrier looks so smart in black and red but will it be as durable as it promises?

Since starting Eat Sleep Love in 2015 we haven’t taken much of a break and although I know we will still be checking in everyday but I am looking forward to some uninterrupted time as a family. Relaxing, it may not be but a change is as good as a rest and I can’t wait to play in the snow with the boys and maybe get in some apres ski fun time!

If you are going away this half term then I hope you have safe travels!
