Tweens can be the new Glamour Girl

Girls 8-12 years are growing up and away from pretty pink.  They still want cute fun designs but in bold colours and patterns.  Wild Poppy is the older sister of our signature brand Pink Poppy.  Wild Poppy has a splash of attitude and sense of character.  It reflects the tween girl and where she is at.  The designs include comtemporary patterns, music and dance in stunning colours with hand crafted three-dimensional details.  Jewellery, hair accessories, cosmetics, stationery, handbags and giftware are all given the Wild Poppy design edge for added sparkle.

The newest edition is GLAMOUR GIRL which is a range of striking bags and accessories in three bold colourways - red, deep purple and black.  It has a glittery heart pattern with a lovable 3D heart applique and is trimmed in metalic silver.

Kindy BFF's - what are you bringing to the cartel?

Starting school is a huge milestone for parents and your child.  Nearing the end of Term 1, here are some observations I have made about my little ones habits at developing friendships and his approach to kindy.

1.  Friends - my child has become BFF with two other children.  He says he is friends with everyone in his class, even some girls.  But these two mates are all he talks about and he can't wait to get to school to see them.
2. Cartel - the three friends have devised ways of convinving their parents to provide three treats for morning tea.  It appears 3 lolly snakes can build unshakable friendships in kindy.
3.  News day - photos, favourite toys, creations made from sticks and string - all of these are fantastic talking points for class news and also show others in his class what he is interested in.
4.  Writing - on the first day he could only write his name, now everyday there is an opportunity to write.  Yesterday he made an easter card for his 2 x BFF and stuck a sealife shaped rubber band on the inside, and a 20c coin.  On the weekend he copied the words off the cereal box and everyday he wants to copy the name of his reader into his school diary.
5.  Independence - Hooray, now he understands what must happen every day to get ready for school.  The picture list has done it's job, but he is very impressed with himself that he no longer has to look at it.
6.  Holidays - he is excited that Easter is coming, but wants confirmation that we can arrange a couple of playdates with his BFF's, still read books, colour in and write words.

So now only has he learnt about the 3 R's, I think he 's learnt some lessons in life.  And I couldn't be prouder!!!
