We've had such a lovely morning with Kaz at JouJou & Lucy as my daughter loves to play in the store while I get some time to look at the beautiful pieces they have there. I couldn't resist but walk out with some and now excited for her to wear them. This is the best children's clothing store in London by a long shot.

Benedicte Rabier I just found my fav' boutique in Maida Vale!! Amazing choice and great service! Everything I needed for my little one and my friends' kids!!! I wish we had more of these local shops!!

Stay cool in the sun!

With temperatures in London breaking records this summer, it’s important to try and stay as cool as possible which can be difficult when you live in the city. The good news is that there are lots of ways to beat the heat if you know where to look, and here’s a few of them.

Did you know that there are three swimming ponds in Hampstead Heath? One mixed, one Ladies and one Men’s. They are regularly monitored for cleanliness and temperature and there are changing rooms and showers. There are also surrounding grassy areas to sunbathe or picnic on after a refreshing swim! It’s best to get there early if it’s a hot day so you can claim your spot!

If wild swimming isn’t your cup of tea but you like the idea of swimming outside, there are many lidos to choose from in London too. Parliament Hill Lido is popular with families as well as perfect for anyone who fancies a dip to cool off in the hot weather followed by some sunbathing and your favourite read. As with the Ponds, there are plenty of helpful lifeguards who make the safety of the swimmers their priority.

 Enjoy yourselves this summer and make sure you use plenty of sun cream!

Spring sunshine in Little Venice


One of the pleasures of having a shop in the residential area of Maida Vale in London is being able to step out of the door and find yourself only five minutes away from the beautiful and iconic waterways of Little Venice. When the sun is out, lunch breaks can be spent meandering along the towpath and admiring the colourful narrow boats moored there. They are often festooned with plants and decorations and you will find that the inhabitants of Little Venice are always very friendly and happy to chat about their unusual lifestyle. They might even let you have a look on board if you’re very lucky. 


There are also plenty of stops to be made as you make your way along the picturesque route, from waterside pubs to waterborne theatres and café’s where you can get a real taste of life on the water. You can opt for a river cruise or you can just sit quietly on a bench and watch the world go by. So when you next visit us, make sure you take the time to see our beautiful surroundings as well.

New Year sale and new season


Well, the tinsel will soon be packed away, 2014 is over and we hope you had a great year. After all the frenzy of Christmas and the countdown to New Year, everyone is settling down and getting back to normal as January kicks in. That doesn’t mean exciting things aren’t happening – there are fantastic
sales and new seasons to look forward to.


While we await the new Spring Summer 15 season collections, we have a fantastic sale on selected Autumn Winter 14 items. Let’s face it, winter is around for a while yet and you can grab some amazing bargains in knitwear, coats and more so you can keep your little ones toasty warm until spring arrives. We’re currently discounting all clothing by 1/3 so come in, say hello and have a look around. Alternatively, you can browse online. Happy 2015!

Let the festivities commence!


We’ve been having a ball (or perhaps we should say bauble!) decorating the shop and window to give it a lovely festive feel. Kaz has especially been enjoying opening the windows of our fabulous advent calendar every day!

Clifton Road is a wonderful place at the best of times, but with the yuletide season upon us it’s even more special, with everyone’s windows lit up with fairy lights and glittering decorations. Christmas trees are being sold on the corner and all that’s missing are a few reindeer wandering around!

Come and see us and bag a few bargains – we’ve got 25% discount off all clothing from Monday 8 – Sunday 14 December. You can pick out some beautiful party outfits and then go to one of the great coffee shops nearby for a mince pie which you can walk off by the canal at beautiful Little Venice just down the road!

Christmas – it’s coming!

Love it or loathe it, there’s no getting away from it. Christmas is well and truly on its way. From party food to glamorous gifts, the High Street is heaving with all things festive.


Of course, the sensible people will have sorted out their Christmas shopping well in advance. The rest of us may mock when our practical friends buy their Xmas gifts in September or even before, but they don’t seem so silly when we’re fighting our way through hordes of fellow shoppers who have also left their present buying to the last minute!

If you’re a serial procrastinator when it comes to Christmas shopping, you can avoid at least some of the aggravation of crowds and grumpy shop assistants by getting out first thing in the morning, especially if you’re doing your shopping in really busy places like Oxford Street in London. You can make your purchases in relative peace before lunchtime when the crowds really get going. While they’re all battling to get to the counters to pay, you can be sitting down for a well earned glass of wine with a nice, relaxed lunch.
