It’s been a while since we’ve profiled one of our favourite mummy blogs, and we think there is no better time than the present, especially as there is currently 20% off Schoolwear on the site! And we’ve got a great blog lined up for you this week called Jo Beaufoix, written by fabulous mummy Jo.
We’ve been avid followers of her blog for quite some time now, and Jo certainly has a knack for bringing a smile to your face! We’re big fans of her amusing anecdotes from everyday life as a parent – especially ‘Just showing off really…’, a post where she rightfully proclaims herself the Queen of Flatpack, and ‘The Great Fire of Learning’ where her daughter creates an artistic masterpiece before her eyes.
Jo touches upon topics that all parents can relate to, so be sure to check out her blog for an interesting read!

We take pride in how great our school uniforms are, not only for their quality but also durability, fit and fantastically low prices. This year, we’ve asked some of our favourite mummy bloggers, to give us their advice on all different aspects of school uniform.
This week we’re asking… What is more important, quality or value, and why?
Kate, who writes the Five F’s blog says – I think it’s a bit of both. Value is no good if it doesn’t give you quality really. I tend to go for the value end but I do consider if I also think it will last and if I don’t think it’s reasonable quality, I won’t buy it. It varies for different items – I make sure my son’s trousers are more durable because my daughter has skirts, pinafores, trousers AND summer dresses so get worn less.
Elle, who writes Notes From Home says – I always look for quality because it is important that the uniform lasts. I have boys who love football and rough and tumble and they are hard on their uniform!
Cathy, who writes NutureStore.co.uk says – School uniforms need to be affordable but quality is the most important thing for me. That way there’s more chance of the uniform lasting long enough to be handed down to little sisters, giving me extra value for money.
Amy who writes and 1 more means four says – Value
Jo who writes Jo Beaufoix says – For me as a single parent, value is pretty important. At the rate my kids grow, chances are they will only be wearing their uniform for a year or less, especially as they have summer and winter uniform, so while I want good quality I do look for a bargain.
Join the conversation and let us know your top tips for buying school uniform…
Notoriously rainy, but great fun nevertheless, Wimbledon is upon us for 2011.
If you’re lucky enough to get the chance to eat strawberries & cream whilst watching some of the world’s best tennis players, then you’ll be needing something to wear…
What to wear to Wimbledon is a dilemma for many women every year… Casual? Dressy? Preppy? Who knows if you’ve never been!
We’ve trawled through our range, and hand picked 2 outfits we think are perfect for the main event…
F&F Pleat Detail Dress £16, White F&F Cardigan £10, F&F Slingback Espadrille Wedges £10
Ichi Military Trousers £35, Influence Lace Yolk Blouse £18, F&F Slingback Espadrille Wedge £15
Psssst… Have you heard?
Get into the Wimbledon spirit with the new Tesco Strawberries and Cream sandwich!!! On sale from today!!!
If you like to do your bit for the community, you’ll love our ‘You Buy One, We Give One’ scheme. If you’ve never heard of the scheme, then the programme gives us the chance to give back to communities that are less fortunate then our own, in countries such as Kenya, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
This year will be the third year that Tesco have supported this scheme, and all you have to do is purchase an item from our ‘You Buy One, We Give One’ range of schoolwear…
For every skirt, trouser or two pack of Fairtrade cotton polos, Tesco will donate a complete school uniform to a child in Kenya, Bangladesh or Sri Lanka. These are countries where school uniforms for British children are manufactured, and children in these countries who are not able to afford a uniform can sometimes miss out on the opportunity of an education.
Since the scheme started, Tesco have donated loads of school uniforms to children in need through this scheme. This year, Tesco are hoping to donate 100,000 uniforms, so get involved and help us beat that target!!
The weather may have taken a turn for the worst, but with such great style inspiration about in the blogosphere, it’s hard to let it put a dampener on your day! This week we’ve been reading Fashion Train, a gorgeous blog written by Becca.
She’s definitely a girl who’s clued up about fashion, and always has a handy tip or recommendation up her sleeve! We’re currently loving her ‘How to wear’ features, as she runs through various outfit suggestions to help you make the most of this season’s key trends. Be sure to check out how she works a fab pair of Ankle Boots into three great looks, and the various different ways you can wear a Multi-Tie!
Also, with festival season just around the corner and so many of you thinking about the all-important wardrobe, check out her ‘Festival Fashion Week’ posts featuring her must have items. We found her guide to the best Hair & Beauty products especially handy, to avoid any mishaps whilst enjoying your favourite bands!

This week we’re loving this gorgeous ‘Freya’ dress. Frills, florals and floatyness were all over the Spring/Summer 2011 catwalks, and we reckon this is a great steal for just £30!
The midi-length and plaited belt make this dress úber trendy and easy to wear for any occasion. Dress down with wedges and a 70’s inspired floppy hat for a picnic, or pair with heels and an ‘up-do’ for special occasions.
The Freya dress is in stock now and selling fast, so nab it while you can!
We’re simply astounded by the vast amount of style content out there in the blogosphere, and wish there were enough hours in the day to read it all! However, we’re taking them one blog at a time, and this week we’ve been reading Diamond Canopy, a very creative blog written by Winnie.
Winnie certainly isn’t afraid to mix things up, and we love her quirky well-thought out sense of personal style! Don’t miss her fab use of sheer sleeves in ‘Black and Beige can be interesting too’, and her incredibly edgy print dress in ‘Some things are never forgotten’. She’s also a girl who knows the importance of the details, and we’ve completely fallen for these gorgeous prism earrings!
She’s got a great passion for art, and creativity seems to run through her veins! We really like the ‘Illustrations’ section of her blog, where some of her favourite blogger friends have kindly illustrated her in some pretty superb drawings.
