Fun in the Sun with Fox Fashion

During the September holidays, the kids had a packed schedule with many interesting performances to watch and other fun activities lined up. The breezy clothing from FOX kept them feeling cool and looking stylish whether they were enjoying a bit of nature, running around, swimming, or having a bite by the pool!

The bright citrusy colours are great for a day of fun in the sun! Anya’s sleeveless striped dress reminds me of a refreshing glass of pink lemonade, and is comfy enough for her to run and play in. Adam’s cheerful yellow striped tee is paired with grey cargo shorts so he can hide random little treasures in his pockets. Looks like stripes was the order of the day because Anya’s swimwear (with UV protection) has some berry colourful stripes too!

Just Peachy: Peachtree Jewellery + Giveaway

David is teething and putting everything into his mouth to chomp on! From toys and wet wipes to the side of his cot, nothing is safe from him! I can’t even wear my usual accessories because he would reach for and try to chew them. So I was delighted to learn about Peachtree, a Singapore-owned label of a line of jewellery made using 100% non-toxic food grade silicone. The pretty necklaces and bangles come in the most amazing colours and are free of any nasty stuff (BPA free, phthalate free, lead free, PVC free and latex free).

Peachtree Jewellery

Knotted between each bead with a breakaway safety clasp for added security, the jewellery is waterproof and gentle on little gums and emerging teeth, which makes them ideal as teething beads. The first day I wore the necklace, David (who doesn’t ever sit still) actually sat quietly on my lap for a good 20 minutes just gnawing on the beads. He reaches for the necklace whenever I’m carrying him and it really helps with his teething pain.

The necklaces come in various stylish designs – pearls, diamonds, diamonds & pearls (my personal favourite), and pendants – that brighten up any outfit. With ten beautiful colours like turquoise sea, biscotti, liquorice and cherry red, you’ll be tempted to buy more than one piece. You may want to try layering necklaces of different colours and designs. There’s even a mini pearl necklace range for kids above 3 that can also work as a short necklace on a grown-up. I’m definitely ‘borrowing’ Anya’s fuchsia mini necklace soon!

Even if you’re not a mum or a little girl, the fact that Peachtree jewellery doesn’t absorb odours or support the growth of bacteria, mould or fungus makes it fabulous for those of us who like to hit the gym. You can also wear the waterproof necklaces and bangles to the beach or the pool and look ultra glamorous in your swimwear.

You can get Peachtree online and from Soon Lee on Haji Lane. They are great as gifts for new mums or little girls who like to dress up. Have fun choosing from all the yummy colours and designs! Singapore-based Peachtree fans on Facebook are offered FREE shipping to anywhere in Singapore via registered post.
