Time for nail polish & pretty thongs Pink Poppy Princesses

What a weekend ahead, Fathers Day AND the first day of spring! Time to dust off your tongs and paint your toe nails pretty Pink Poppy's Princesses, and be sure to cook breakfast for your DAD this Sunday! 

Thursday morning - Miss Four is so excited about Fathers Day this Sunday, she couldn't keep the hand made gift she created at preschool a secret... any longer. 
"Daddy" and I were awoken at 5.15am this morning, as our little lady clambered into our bed, with her gingerbread "daddy" and hand crafted card! 
Ahh, the sheer delight and love children find in each and everyday, especially when there is a celebration imminent!!
Happy Spring to all x

Pink Poppy wishes a Happy Fathers Day to all the beautiful boys in your world

Are the flower blossoms playing fairy tricks on us?

The aromatic, white and wonderfully gorgeous jasmine flowers are starting the peak their faces out in my neighbourhood....buts it's still technically winter, isn't it?
Are the flowers confused, or is it mother nature, or are we all to rigid about times, dates and season as the children of this crazy place we call planet earth!
I love this time of the year, when the seasons meld into one, one any given day.
We can wake up to warm blue skies in the morning, and by lunch its teaming with rain and night time brings a gusty gale, ready to blow all the petals off the recently blooming magnolias!

Imagine being a butterfly in this weather?......

Fun and games with Pink Poppy, every day

Are you and your preschooler looking for some fun games to play this week? Pink Poppy can assist. Try the new Pink Poppy Snap Card Game, with gorgeous characters to pair up. Perfect for increasing memory and improving concentration with your little fairies!
How much fun it is when you and your little one play a game together, share a giggle and grin? Children love it when you get down, on "their" level, and absorb yourself in their world. 
The best tip someone gave me, early on in the child - rearing phase...its always a happy ending, when your little one comes out the "winner". 

Winners are grinners, and the grin we enjoy together is worth it, every time we play.

How many hair clips, ribbons, hair bands...?

"How many hair bands, hair clips, ribbons, plaits, twists and crimps can you fit into and onto your head?"... I ask Miss Four this morning as she prepares for another BIG beautiful day at preschool! 
What a sight. The school photos were last week. 
"The photographer may visit again today...?" I can almost hear her thinking....
 How wonderful are little girls? 
Sugar and mischievous fairy spice, that's what my little girl is made of, most days!

Do you know someone, under the age of seven years old, who is quite emphatic about wearing their favorite dress up to bed?
I do....Although I give her many reasons why she "shouldn't'" wear her beautiful lacy, sequinned detailed fairy dress and tight leather ballet shoes to bed....she will not listen. Most nights, admittedly, I give in!
Whats the worst that can happen?
1) She will wake up with sweaty feet from the ballet slippers donning her feet all?
2) Her fav outfit will be creased beyond repair from the extra hot setting on the iron?
The worst case scenario for her, me and the rest of the family is....
3) The tightness and tautness of her numerous layers will eventually wake her up and she will come stumbling into MY bed, eventually waking me, and the battle begins once more about where she is going to resettle herself, for the rest of the night - fairy dress, ballet slippers and all!

At the end of the day (or night!!), we LOVE them, as much as they love their  dress up's and ballet shoes!

So, I ask my four year old maiden princess, after a big day of fun and fantasy at her gorgeous preschool..."What shall I write today on the Pink Poppy blog?".....
Her answer is "I told you last time mum, we LOVE Pink Poppy".
Her sentence was loud and clear. She expressed simple, pure LOVE for an Australian brand which brings inspiration, imagination and hours of enjoyment to my Miss Four, along will many thousands of other little Pink Poppy princesses around the globe! It's amazing what a name can represent, and how many synonyms spring to mind for little (and big) fairy princesses, when Pink Poppy is mentioned!
Thanks Pink Poppy for delighting us each month with new and amazing Australian designed accessories and garments, quality made with love and wonderment!

What's on this weekend? .....Perhaps a Fairy party? A Wedding? Or even a Christening?
Little girls don't REALLY need an excuse to dress up, do they? Our "Pink Poppy inspired" Miss 4 ventured off everyday this week in a different frilly, beaded, colourfully  flowing outfit, fit for a princess. In fact the praise and commentary which accompanied each outfit was, at times, overwhelming! Which made me realize, innocence is SO sweet. Our little girls don't dress up to impress, or to delight anyone else except themselves, in their own make-believe worlds of sugar, spice and all things nice - THAT'S what makes our little girls so SWEET....Enjoy your weekend with your little princess in what ever outfit she selects!

Contemplating another change, and its only 8.45am!
